I know my blog posting schedule is way of target. There should not be a blog post today, but as I have just finished this I thought to share it with everyone. Firstly let us talk about chocolate, yes I am an addict! I have to say that at all the meetings I go to of "Chocoholics Anonymous!" I am not making light of anyone if they do have a problem I do feel for them, truly I do. At Salute this year I picked up a couple of dice and a model for Mathyoo (LINK) that well known Slovenian Blogger. When he asked how to repay me I simply asked for some local Slovenian chocolate. And I was delighted on Saturday when this turned up. And jolly tasty it is to! And NO! I am not going to share it with you nor give it back, instead I shall just smile and rub my tummy and think nice thoughts. So anyway a BIG thank you Mathyoo for sending it to me it is very much appreciated!
But you do not want to know about the contentment in my belly you want to know about figures. So today I have a Very British Civil War set from Musketeer Miniatures, which are now sold by footsore miniatures. These are part of the platoon with one Boys Antitank Rifle in each platoon. Here is a wiki link in case you have not come across them before. (LINK) but I suspect you already know all that and may even own several models of it as well and realise that they are not all that good at stopping tanks after 1941. But they would make a mess of an armoured cars or truck engine . For the setting of A Very British Civil War they should be perfectly adequate though, especially as neither Matt nor myself will ever dream of putting a "Matilda" on the games table for this conflict, Some things are just not Cricket!
As you can see 2 figures as a crew both dressed in civilian clothes and both ready to help defend the River Medway as part of the Anglican league. They may be the only antitank weapons we will ever need for the game. But I did notice that Warlord games do make a 25mm BEF Antitank gun so that may well be an upcoming purchase. But don't hold your breath.
That's it for today these figures will be in Matts collection on Sunday and I may use the next few days to sort out my collection for the battle of the Medway as I have nothing on the painting table this instant. Or I might go back to Necrons or finish some fantasy dwarfs or heaven only knows what,
Thanks for Looking today. All the best from Clint
