.5's

Yes I am still painting Samurai but also working through other projects as well. Yesterday I finished the Peter Pig Figures that I bought at the SELWG show. While it is not in anyway the greatest output by me it does ad yet another option for this force in PBI. While I already had some .5 Browning heavy Machineguns they were all vehicle mounted and I wanted the opportunity of taking them off on the vehicles and setting them up independently. This may not seem like a massive advantage, and in many ways it is not but with defensive stance level 1 this would mean that the vehicles towing the artillery (Prime movers) would automatically be on the battlefield at the start of the game.

 There were two additional (command) figures in the pack, but they cluttered the bases so I have left them out. Also one base would be without a commander and to me that just looked odd. They were in the same sculpting style as all Peter Pig figures and size wise fit in acceptably well with Battlefront and also QRF. I do like the way that extra ammo boxes can be seen under the tripods supporting the guns. (Clearer in the third picture). There really is nothing not to like in these figures unless the barrels are facing towards your own troops of course but that's a different story.

That will have to do for today. I can't show things that are not ready and I have had a few lazy days of not painting. As you should know by now I am at the wargames club tomorrow so there should be an AAR of some sort on Monday. Thanks for looking, have a good weekend and see if you can have some harmless fun, oh and don't spent too much money if you can help it. Take care. Clinty

Post script: As another wargamer has taken to calling me "Clinty" I thought I would try it out and see if it sticks! Who says I can't take a joke?

  2. You can never have enough Brownings. Especially if you have a lot of half-tracks and the like with the option of dismounting them :)

    1. I don't even know what I am playing today (Sunday) so the AAR will be a mystery until I turn up. Lots started on the paint table, but finished..... that's another story.

      Thank you Simon

  9. Maybe it's the new nickname that's got you all fired up in your current bout of mass-production ! These are are a good and probably necessary addition to your units' firepower.

    'Clinty' ? ffs

    1. No he's been calling me Clinty for a few years now I think he thinks it annoys me. Truth is I just think it's funny.

      Yes we all need a few big machineguns now and then. Be warned new project alert coming soon! I know you want to see one.
