I have been wargaming for 10 years in which time I have finally settled on two eras, Napoleonic and WWII, both in 15mm (1:100). Most of my ramblings will be about gaming in these two eras. An attempt will be made to record my wargaming interests, building of armies, ideas, interests and hopefully some games played.

Another Lead mountain update

After the last game I've been going through my WWII "stuff to paint boxes" and discovered more items purchased, during the later half of last year, that idea forgotten about. They are 7 vehicles for my proposed 21st Panzer Kampfgruppe. Not sure how to add these to the vow as there will be crew figures to paint. Should I count the figures separately to the vehicles? I think I might. So total to be added to the Vow as purchased will be 28. Good news is that I've started to paint four of these vehicles....pictures will follow when completed.

Also, I'm a sucker for nicely painted AB figures and put in a speculative bid on some that were on ebay recently..... to my surprise I won the auction. They are some nice AB Napoleonic Austrians that should complement my current Austrian army well. (66 castings in total). Once I've touched up some of the painting a little, and rebased them to match my current basing I'll post some photos.

BUT:
I've also sold more lead:
3 DBA armies, (an Early Imperial Roman + BUA, an Ancient British and a Moorish, totalling 128 castings) plus some surplus packs of unpainted lead totalling 63 castings. Total sold = 191 castings.

Vow has been updated.
