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.

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.

As part of the British & French 'intervention' in Egypt in 1956, 3 Para was dropped on Gamil, just to the west of Port Said. I had long wanted to game aspects of this campaign and prepared this scenario for Little Cold Wars. Back in May 2022 Russell & Pete turned up as my playtesters. The Brits were up against the clock and also trying to minimise losses.
Being quite a short game, we managed to fit it in on the same day as the TF Smith game. The British paras were mostly the Airfix WW2 figures with some conversions, the Egyptians were represented by my long-suffering Warpact Militia.
After some sharp firefights the Brits soon controlled much of the airfield.
