    That would be a pretty sad plog, with only just a handful models, but who knows what future brings.

    I found some more pics in my phone so I have material for another update.

    Let's start with an artillery-piece, an medium howitzer to be a it more precise.
    This was one of those models that you really look forward to work on, and when you do, it really doesn't live up to your expactations. And it sort of show in the result as well...



    Next up is the italian armoured brigade.
    In the foreground an L6/40 light tank which fills the armoured car slot in the platoon
    And in the back is the classic italian M13/40 tank.
    These two was a much more pleasant experience than the artillery.
    And htey have still to experience the rigors of the gaming-table so my illusions of their grandiour is still intact.



    And now for something completely different....

    The Churchill.
    I have always liked the look of this tank. I remember that a friends older brother had built a really nice big model of one of these as a kid, a crocodile, which just was so damn cool.

    And now I have a Churchill of my own...it just took some 30+ years

    From a gaming perspective this falls into the same category as the german Tiger, just a must have, effective or not. And since I haven't played since early spring this one too is unused. And just really fun to put beside the italian tanks, just because of the size-difference.

    It's always great to see Bolt Action players, as gameplay wise it is the best game imo.

    Even better is that you do desert armies, something I see very rarely, despite it being a key theatre of the war.

    I think much of that is because it's early/mid war, not as many big and shiny toys as the later ones

    I'm going to make a small update, or rather post some better photos of things that already have appeared.

    So here is my italian armour.
    First out my M13/40





    And it's followed closely by its smaller friend the L6/40 tankette





    They are still undefeated (and unfielded ), but that will hopefully at least change to fielded but undefeated since I have a game or two lined up next month. Going to be my first 2nd ed. games as well, which will be interesting.

    If my suspicion of whom you suspect is correct then yes, both the vehicles are from Warlord Games.

    Thanks! The desert is pretty much my favourite theatre so it was pretty obvious to go for that.
    At least until the New Guinea book happens.
