This my first post with the new computer. Still not managed to get to Grips with Windows 8, but I feel confident that I shall. (Given enough time, patience and medication!!)
Here we have a single British Union of Fascists tank in 20mm. This is one of my very very old SHQ models re-painted and based and now ready for action. I won't be doing much in the way of tanks for either force but while I am able to re use existing items that I own I shall do so. Call it wargames recycling if you will. This Vickers Mk IV carries a black livery as well as BUF lightning bolt markings. It also has BUF on the front section of armour. The flag pole carries not the "Union Flag" as we know it but a different version. (This is mostly because I have a few spare and not for any political statement.) While I am sure that many people will identify it as being different they will know that it is for VBCW and as such is not trying to be the modern flag. This flag has been adopted by some of the Kentish BUF due to an unhappy relationship with Eire. Once Ireland has come under BUF sway they will of course be happy to include them on the flag as well, but until such times they will not be considered. The real reason for using this particular design is that I have a sheet of them that won't get used otherwise, but don't tell anyone!
That's it for today. thanks for reading and now we shall all push on to the 25, 000 milestone. All the best Clint!
