They aren't finished yet, that's only a rough coat on them !

Don't mess them up too much, then!  :)

I hear you Simon, the trick is with "Sand" coloured vehicles is not to over do them ? You have to have a " Light" approach to the wash and dry brush effects !

PBI and CWB will be held at the new Venue in the Upton area. Address to be confirmed as soon as i know.

PBI day September 2018. (1943)
The event is so popular we will even have a bring and buy ?
Me and Colin are just negotiating a price for the event. £10 for the day which will include some Tea and coffee for free as well as table time.
I need to have a good idea of numbers please soon ?  I know some people will just turn up ! I am hoping Entoyment will have an event set up for this on the website then you can book tickets via this.

So i am bringing a Tunisian/Italian 1943 British army, with Churchills. Apparently i can have the PIAT as well ?

Miles,
Thank you for organising this.
Work has got in the way of my completing the army I'd started. But I'd love to come still if someone could kindly loan me a suitable army.

Stewart, that's very kind, thank you. I'll perhaps see what others are doing.

Of course, If you are able to make it, we can do the Pacific War!

I am currently scheduled to be off  on 29 September so am looking to attend. Do we have a theme or is 'open' to all armies 1939 to 1945?

If I can get along, I was thinking of using Japanese. Flags, swords and knee mortars. Game winner.
