WW2 German Kfz 15 Staff Car and Opel Blitz Truck

"Put your foot down Helmut!". The staff car is by Britannia Miniatures. Their 20mm range is superb, and quite inexpensive to boot. The truck is by Airfix and comes with the Pak 40 gun (not shown). These 1/76 sets are quite cheap to pick up on ebay or Amazon marketplace, and once replacing the crew with a few metal ones you literally can't tell the difference once painted. The detail on the truck is very nice, and you can always put a bit of ballast in the back to add weight on the games table. I painted these in a late war camo and added some GW Bestial Brown mud splashes.

British Infantry: 86th Regt. of Foot - Indian Mutiny

28mm Foundry Miniatures. Painted these as the 86th Regiment of Foot, in their red jackets and dyed blue trousers. They've been sat on the shelf for ages, but glad that I've finally got round to making a start on them. Also recently managed to grab a copy of David Bickley's ruleset for the Indian Mutiny "The Devil's Wind".
