Holiday over a great two weeks in the portugese sunshine back in Scotland and the suns shining here too! I had ordered a load of books on the peninsular war for holiday reading but they didn't arrive in time so it was a revisit of the Sikh wars for me which was still some great reading.I took these pics before I left for hols of the WW2 North African collection which has sunshine a plenty also.
|British officers in North Africa|
|Mortar crew shelling the Axis forces holed up in a village.|
|Confused German and Italians in the village.|
|Trying to spot where the attacks coming from.|
Enemy duly softened up the British begin to advance.
|SAS attacking from the rear.|
Unsuspecting trooper cops it.
|Great collection of figures these from Artizan really like the Italians.|
|Italian squad rushing to the rear on this occasion to actually fight.|
I think I will get a small collection of Abyssnians to go against these after seeing James Morris great game on the lead adventure forum.
Villagers indifferant to the outcome watch from a distance.
All painted by the War Office.
Claymore on Saturday so hope to pick up some goodies then to add to the collection.
Thanks for visiting
