I was pitched against Jacks American Armoured and I ended up using Panzer Lehr (grenadiers & tigers), we played on a very nice Bocage table and after a tense game I managed to snatch the objective in after destroying all of Jacks Shermans.
Well it's been a hectic couple of weeks, I have managed to sell some old flames of War models on Ebay and used the funds to buy some Bolt Action Germans, enough to field roughly 1500 points, these are nearly all painted with just a puma and panther to complete and then finish basing all the infantry.
I have recently started attending the Tuesday games night run by the Poole Gaming Society at Entoyment (just round the corner from home which is fantastic), It's been great meeting some new fellow gamers and managing to try out Bolt Action thanks to Bob hosting an intro game and grabbing a couple of refresher games of Flames of War.
Yup all done and based up just awaiting the glue and matte medium to dry fully then I will take some photos and post them up.
I'm really pleased with how they turned out, also used some different techniques on the bases all will be revealed tomorrow.
Not a bad few days work I managed to paint my British Commando platoon, great little figures just have to base them up along with my SS assault rifle platoon.
No delivery from the post today so hopefully my buildings come Monday and I can then get a little review up.
Just treated myself to some new terrain from 4ground , hoping the following get to me by the weekend so I can put them together and provide a review

- 15mm Scale Memorial/Statue 15S-TAO-109

Was really good fun painting the tanks as Chris (the client) wanted one in winter clothes and two random one so I couldn't resist painting up what I call octopus camo.
We'll that was a expensive weekend!
Wendy and I popped along to Seveanoaks HiFi in Southmapton to listen to some new floor standing speakers, we wanted to have a demo of some Bowers & Wilkins CM8s and KEF R500s, we also had a listen to some Monitor Audio Silver 6 (I think that was the model number), after 3 hours and various music tracks we ended up plumping for the KEFs and I can't wait until tehy are delivered on Wednesday night, it's going to be a long week!
Very busy and then some!
Buit i did manage to get some painting cone specifically for a comission, we have loads of things over here including M10s, Horses,wespes and artillery.
Painting is on hold for a bit as I have had to pack up my kit as we are trying to sell our flat and mess dosn't do when you've got viewings, still it does mean I do get a to have a dedicated MAN CAVE !!!!!
