BUF started (VBCW)
Frontline Wargaming as is 1/72nd scale. I have added British Union of Fascists (BUF) markings to the doors as well as front and rear panels. Many of the commercial "Tilleys" had an enclosed rear pick up van section, but this one has a canvas tilt. The model paints up very well and has the feel of something very useful in real life, but when the fighting starts will no doubt get squashed like a bug.
I needed to get some VBCW figures done after my spray debacle just to get back in the saddle. While I work out exactly what I need from Tim at IT Miniatures . I have some ideas and will send him an order through in the next few days. What I do know is that the two main forces involved will be Anglican League (AL) and British Union of Fascists (BUF) as they are the two most active factions locally. The planned game will most likely be part of the "Kent Campaign" briefly mentioned in the source book which concerns the BUF marching on Canterbury held by the AL. The campaign was halted at the river Medway. so that gives non VBCW players a tiny insight into what's going on.
That's it for today, thanks for reading. Hope you found something of interest and I will post again on Friday. Til then keep calm and roll some dice.
All the best Clint
