Too much heat than is healthy for us damp cold Brits, my son's wedding and England football team doing something highly unusual in the World Cup has conspired to adversely affect my wargaming time!
I am getting back on track although the damn heat is still here! The most immediate need now is to prepare for the first battle in my 'Operation Nostalgia' campaign which is a coastal naval action. Involving a total of 7 MTB's and MGB's of the Royal Navy against 4 German Torpedo Boats (effectively destroyer escorts). I have them all in 1/3000th scale but it is too small an action to do it justice in this scale. I decided in the end that 1/1200th would be the best option.
In the past week or so I have continued with other ships and game templates -
Here are 3 of the 4 torpedo boats with, from the left, T24 (Hallmark), Albatross and Mowe (2 models from the 70's and in need of repainting). T4 together with the British MTB's and MGB's have been ordered from Magister Millitum. I will crack on a paint up these as soon as they arrive.
Here Bag the Hun templates have been cut out and mdf bases glued together to match the templates. These have now been completed and should allow BtH to be played without the use of a hex mat.
Ships in various stages of completion. The intention is to get ahead with completing as many ships and planes as possible meaning that I will have fewer to paint when actions occur.
