In recent months there has been much talk in Funny Little Wars circles of taking the game into the 'Big War' period and beyond. I have a few ideas about this which will be revealed as I build and paint stuff. So pretty slowly then. Availability of toys is pretty good, not least from the Armies in Plastic figure range. Other suitable bits include the recently re-released Airfix B-type bus and the A7V and 'Tadpole' tanks from Steve Weston. The sorry saga of my bus build has already been revealed on these pages, and last month I finally applied some paint to the first of the tanks. The base colour is Humbrol Grass Green spray, topped off with a coat of matt spray varnish. I have included figures (useful chaps from the bus kit) in the photos so you can appreciate the size of the thing!
The Weston tanks are ready assembled plastic models.
