BPI Platoon

Well I finally got around to taking some pics of my completed BPI platoon with their AFV transport and fire support walker unit. I went with a fairly traditional camouflage scheme as personally the 'traditional bright' sci-fi colours just don't work for me. I've yet to finalise the background for the 67th BPI platoon, but they will be based upon a unit from Operation Market Garden, just because I envisage them dropping into conflict zones as per paratroopers. So until then some pics of the unit to whet your appetite.

The 67th platoon deploy from their AFVs with the weapons support squad and the fire support walker unit to the fore.

Each squad has identifying coloured shoulder pads and recognition markers on the AFV to help distinguish them on the table.

The weapons support squad in their armoured suits with their walker unit deployed for action. I've yet to decide upon an AFV transport for these, so for the time being they will have to walk into action.

Blast-Tastic Wargames Show

Michael of Angel Barracks and KR-16 rules fame is putting on a sci-fi wargames show called Blast-Tastic in October this year. There is already a good mix of traders and demo and/or participation games to be seen, so things are looking good for this inaugural show.  Given that I play KR-16, have some of his lovely figures and live only about 20 minutes away (traffic permitting), I will be definitely attending. Hopefully I will see some familiar faces on the day and have fun seeing what's on offer.
