I have managed to paint up some of the vehicles I "Scrounged" from Tim. These tree trucks all have the same cab but by simply painting them in different colours they look more like civilian lorries that have been commandeered and pressed into service as part on the great push to cross the River Medway. I have tried to stick to colours from the period which has lead to some interesting combinations that you tend not to see today. It's funny that even in my life-time the colours of Motor vehicles have changed, when I was a lad there were no silver coloured cars on the road, today silver seems the most popular colour. I looked at vintage vehicle images on Google to select the colour combinations.
I really wanted these to have a commercial feel and not a military one. For me part of the joy of VBCW is the ad-hoc nature of many of the units. As such I wanted these to be usable for many purposes. I have not assigned them to any troops or factions as I see these as generic transports for any faction. Should we need a supply convoy for example these will fit the bill. If not used in game as transport they can and will be part of the scenery of the game.
All these trucks, along with some others, are available from Tim at Frontline Wargaming and I think will add some flavour to any WW2 or VBCW battle in 20mm. Sometimes it is the little details which make the most difference in a game.
Club tomorrow so I will post again on Monday. Have a great weekend and I'll talk to you soon. All the best Clint.
