Well no the not quite! I will explain as I go on. You will kindly note that the picture of the BMD-1 to the Right is a real life one and is included only to show what the camouflage patters should be. I don't think they have come out too much different on the smaller ones or at least they are similar enough to give an idea of what they should be.
The second Photograph shows the whole force except for the infantry all together an below according to "Digest N04 Volume 1" of The Challenger 2 wargames rules. Since they were published the composition and equipment has changed, so please do not accept this as an up to date list. And bellow is a list of all that I have painted

PPBFor those Playing in the Play by blog game I will need your turn by 9am GMT tomorrow. I have already had 3 orders so thanks to Edwin, Millsy and Lucky Lee. You three at least will be able to move as you desire. Anyone not sending in a move order will be assumed not to be giving any orders and will be assumed to be moving in a straight line with their current sail settings. If this is your intention Please send an order in anyway just so I know you are awake and have not fallen off of the edge of the world.
Don't forget in the early game orders are easy. Just let me know if you want to turn and which way and if it is at the beginning or end of your move. By How much of a turn and if you want to change your sail setting. When you send your order in I will send a confirmation email back. Don't forget folks I can take extra Photos if you require them but allow me 48 Hours to complete this task.
New Project AlertsYesterday I took delivery of 480 10mm Zulu's (which I call the 500 for ease) These are going to be prepped for Curt's Analogue painting challenge in December. You are warned!
Second Warning I have been seriously looking at "Queen Anne's War" for Donnybrook in 15mm as I have a number of stalled projects which I can paint figures for and get a couple or three forces finished for. So expect a trial of those being painted in the next week. Once Paint Monkey has finished.
That's it folks. Have a good Day and I will work out and post the PBB results tomorrow for turn 1.
All the best Clint
