Now when my VCBW project stalled, the projects disappeared. (My guess is that a certain lady ethnically cleansed them to parts unknown and not too gently either.) Well I found bits and pieces, so begins the recovery period.

There's the motorised section.
The support section, although I am missing two HMGs, got the crew.
A medical section.
A CIVPOL section.
A medical section.
An artillery piece that needs heavy TLC.
There's a Russian backed assault platoon and a Territorial Battalion (not shown.)

I'm going to be busy. Damn those HMGs.

Wish me luck.

Making the effort.


Despite SWMBO efforts. I want to keep up the momentum of modelling, posting and eventually gaming.

This is what I've been working on the last few weeks.

Hope they'll all see some action in the near future.

Cheers for stopping by.

A Return to the Fold?

Hi All,

Real life can be tough and tempus certainly does fugit!

I don't want to bother you with the details but I am attempting to get back into our hobby by making a serious attempt to reinvigorate my VBCW campaign.

I haven't been totally 'out of it.' Having purchased and read the following.

Some great reads with ideas aplenty. So there'll be a new concept (except the theatre of operations.)

Additionally, I've spent most of March gathering some forces together.

Using the ideas from Mel; The Terrain Tutor who can be found on: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx_aro8CTHw7ZD5H661hC6Q
He is well worth a watch and a follow.

So God willing I'll be entering the fray once more. Watch this space.

Thanks for popping by,

Definitely off topic

No war-gaming this week and certainly none this weekend.

The heirs and I are up the smoke for the rugger.

See you all soon, hopefully.

Centuria/Cohort Support Elements

Right slow and easy. Man cave sorted. Troops reorganised and the support elements; found, prepped and ready for completion. This week? We'll see, what with the World Egg Chasing Championship on at the moment.

Armour Platoon

Dr. Holmes, his sisters, the Medical Section

Transport (ammo supply) Section

Courier/REECE platoon

Heavy Weapons Section,with FOO
There are more cyclists and heavy weapons, but they won't join the BUF. I see HaT do a WW1 British Heavy Weapons box containing mortars. Does anyone know where I could get a pack at a decent price?

I hope to get these completed by the end of the week, after which the heirs and I will be going to Wembley to watch Ireland vs Romania. Will I get my wish, I doubt it, but the sooner it's complete the sooner a game is on.


Thanks for popping by, keep safe.
