Lately I have been busy painting up some extra command bases, standard bearers and vehicles for an ongoing SCW campaign that I am running. Alongside these I have also been working on my ImagiNations 19thC European troops, but more on those in another post. The results of my efforts can be seen below and some will be making their debut on the table today.
|An Armoured truck. I was toying with some fancy camo schemes but in the end went with plain grey as you can see, as it works perfectly for the SCW and is generic enough for any side during the AVBCW.|
|Another armoured truck, but one I converted by covering the back and adding an MG turret to it.|
|A French Schneider WWI tank. The Spanish had around 3 working ones at the start of the war.|
|A French WWI armoured car that will be used as a Bilbao armoured car in SCW games.|
|A little red tractor! A 'N' guage railway model that I added a driver to and repainted it. It will be used as an artillery tow or simple table decoration.|
|Local Police force or Guardia d'Asalto. The model 'T' Ford was converted by giving it some new wheels and armoured windows.|
|British Union of Fascists or Falange.|
|People's Fifth Flying Column or International Brigade.|
|Prince Albert's Somerset Light Infantry or British International Brigade.|
|Italian Corpo Troppo Voluntare.|
|Italian CTV Blackshirts. The centre of the flag is actually gold but just looks yellow in the photo.|
I enjoyed painting these and the painted flags look better than the ones I can print at home, as they don't look so washed out. If I had a laser printer then this would be less of an issue as the one I used to use at work produced wonderful flags. One of the downsides of retirement! The only other issue with these is that I can't do any text on them as they are too small (about 8mm high) for my eyes and shaky hands. A minor problem though to be honest.
Time to go and get ready for the game! until next time, stay safe and keep healthy.
