Stormy Vic - part 2

Behold the completed Sturmovik!  I used the decals from the kit, after applying a version of the suggested paintwork.  The red spinner was my own idea but it somehow looks right.

Stormy Vic - part 1

I dug out this Sturmovik kit recently as I have a game idea which requires such a beast. It went together pretty well - the parts fit was rather good.
The kit came equipped with bomb racks.  This being a ground attack machine it seemed like a good idea to fit them.

Austrian Hussars

These chaps had their debut outing at September’s Leipzig game. The figures are actually Italeri French hussars which I have owned for some years. They were painted by fellow blogger, wargamer, author and all-round good chap Conrad Kinch. Apparently at least one member of the aristocratic Von Kinch family served in this very regiment......

Basically brilliant Buccaneer

Fresh from the Partizan ‘plane purchase pile is this rather lovely and surprisingly intact Buccaneer. Resplendent in RAF markings and all-over brown and tan camouflage it’s a very pleasing addition to my Little Cold Wars air forces.

Furiously fettling feeble French foot

Here are a few photos of the post-Leipzig game sort-out of my French infantry.  They're not lookers but there are decent numbers of them.  I plan to paint up some neater units for next year's game.
