689 - Painting Chart Updates (Part 2 - Ancients)

Hullo, All,

I shall keep this one brief as it's once again self-explanatory...

...except that I've not really covered my recent dive into 'Ancients' very much.

Suffice it to say that
  1. I was given a bunch of 'Hail Caesar' Vikings;
  2. I bought a bunch of 'Saga' Anglo-Danes cheaply;
  3. I was given a bunch of 'Mortal Gods' Thebans, and
  4. I was given a bunch of 'SPQR' Gallic-Celts.
The rest - if you'll pardon a weak pun - is history. 

Where it is I plan to go with all of this is for a future post; for now, here are the collections...:
TTFN,

688 - Painting Chart Updates (Part 1 - WWII)

Hullo All,

Well, I'm back at work (which sucks) but I'm also partway through a pretty productive summer!

I thought I'd mark this by updating where I am with all of my forces and projects, starting with the WWII 28mm stuff. Next post will be the Ancient and Dark Ages stuff, which has been...er...expanding rather rapidly of late!
So without further ado, this is where I am with my...

British 4KSLI (11th Armoured Division): 
(Here's the key, by the way)
The British Indian Army in the Desert:
British Paras:
German Early-War Heer:
German Late-War Heer Grenadiers: 
...and finally, the RAF Regiment and the (as yet unbuilt but nevertheless expanding) US Buffalo Soldiers:

Cheers,

- Drax.

687 - Desert Rats Quad Tractor - 'Dinky' Repaint

Recently I picked up this puppy at Totnes Market. Haggled the fellow down to eight quid, and then repainted its battered outer so that it could act as a tow for my Desert Rats' 25pdr. 
I left the driver as he was, of course...
