I think I got this idea from a picture on Facebook of some guys table, ever since I have been on the look out for an old model car which I could 'tart' up. I got this one at a junk stall in Lancaster, it cost the princely sum of £1.50, I have seen other period cars online for ten times that but of course it would have been madness to wreck them.
This particular model was a British delivery van, I sprayed it with some reddish brown primer, tore the tyre's off and then set too with watered down black paint. Once it looked suitably bad I dry brushed it with steel, I had some other bits and pieces laying around so added some of these to the base.
The idea is either to pop it beside a house as having been abandoned by the owner or as an objective marker, I have an idea if I get some more to possibly build up a hasty barricade with them.
I now really have reached the end of the line with my wargaming projects, and am struggling to come up with some ideas to while away a few hours of an evening. I could do some more terrain pieces i.e. gardens etc. to make the houses blend in on the battlefield a bit better rather than standing about fairly starkly.
I was hoping to have my Bolt Action V2.0 to read this weekend, however despite the newsletter informing me they were being shipped last Wednesday night and having paid express delivery I still do not have my copy, no one does seemingly, so I don't have a clue about the announcement.
I have a mate coming up from London in October for a weekends gaming, he is trying his best to kick start some Warhammer Ancient Battles and has offered to introduce me to WAB. I am very much a fan of War and Conquest and have regretted never getting into WAB when it was at its height, so I have ordered a copy of the rules from eBay, it is the least I can do as he is leaving the comfort of his soft Southern climes to venture to these Northern wilds to be defeated.
