Here are some more photographs from the Warfare 2015 Show in Reading. These images are from a 28mm Demonstration Game set in the latter part of the second world war.
The German forces were withdrawing in the face of a British attack.
Some of the forces provided a defensive line.
Nicely painted and some excellent scenery.
My old SDD Miniatures German SdKfz 251 Half Track patrols a French village.
Roads and buildings from Battlefront.
I mentioned the armoured locomotive a week ago, well here is the rolling stock to go with my Flames of War German Armoured Train.
I got an Artillery Car and an Anti-Aircraft Car (or should that be a Flak Car?).
Like the locomotive the main parts of the model are resin with metal wheels and components.
I know I really should have gone for an Infantry Car, but to be honest the thought of trying to glue together the radio aerials put me off, so I didn’t.
After much consideration I did in the end get a German Armoured Train for Flames of War, well an armoured locomotive to begin with.
Though they were not used on the Western Front (as far as I am aware) it is my intention to use it against British (and American) tanks. Then again I might just get in a few Soviet tanks for a quick game.
As with most Battlefront models the kit contains resin with metal parts for the details. The engine and tender are two resin parts with the front, the funnel and the wheels in metal.
Next stage will be washing the resin, and cleaning the castings before constructing the engine.
Forged in Battle on their Facebook page have showed off a V2 rocket with armoured half-track.
Looks very nice, though not so sure about the exhaust smoke, looks like it has been modelled as just taking off. Not so useful as an objective, but nonetheless could still be used.
