A welcome find in JB's box of treats was this old Airfix Corsair. It was actually pretty solid and needed only paintwork and decals.

Great War Italian Bersaglieri - part 1
Following the apparent success a couple of years ago (where does the time go?) of my Isonzo game, I felt motivated to paint some of the Waterloo 1815 (so HAT) WW1 Italians I had in stock. So naturally I couldn’t find them. Time passed and they finally surfaced a few months ago - doubtless during a search for something unrelated - so I decided their time had come.

Flaky Fagot fettling - MiG-15 recovery part 2
Having slapped on an undercoat of matt black, I followed up with (fairly roughly applied) Revell silver. Some red highlights were added and the canopy painted over. Now I’m off to the decal box in search of something suitable.

Engineers at Mametz, August 1914
This was another of the Rommel in 1914 Skirmish Campaigns series - albeit this time without Lieutenant R himself. I set up the table and ran it over Zoom using A Fistful of Lead rules. Broadly a platoon of Germans had to pass along the road and the Frenchies had to prevent this.
Martin, Russell and Simon were the wicked Germans. John and Diego the French.
