This post is, alas, the swan song of this particular collection. A few months back I received an offer that was "too good to refuse" for the whole lot. They are now campaigning in Germany under a new owner. These vignettes are just a few odds and ends of figures that I had kicking around, so decided to paint them up for old time's sake. They will doubtless make their way onto EBAY in due course. It was a difficult decision to sell them all - around 1,000 foot and 300 mounted (!!), but it is one of the facts of life for a professional figure painter. Never mind, the cash will be re-invested in future projects I am sure!
Anyway. Will report back when I have news. For now, here are the links to the blogs concerned.

Sorry it has been a while. Have been pretty busy with commissions and my own terrain boards (of which more anon). I have also been playing about with different ways of doing trees and bushes for my 20mm and 28mm collections; again more anon. Below is the latest addition to my FBB project: the first element of the Flak Regiment, which was such a powerful component of the brigade, vital for dealing with all the enemy jabos that were knocking about towards the end of the war. The vehicle itself is a die cast model acquired from EBAY and re-painted with the airbrush. The crew are mainly AB miniatures.
