Comment: This weeks picture shows a couple of WW2 British Shermans. The one on the left being a Firefly, the one of the right being armed with a 105mm. Main points of interest in the picture are:
a) Track extenders fitted to assist with mobility over soft ground, and
b) All the extra track hanging off the vehicles for extra protection.
For no particular reason I've been lax in posting updates to this Blog, need to give myself a talking to a I feel ! LOL Been doing lots of gaming, just lacked the writing inspiration to burst into print about them. Anyway, at the club on Thursday six of us had a game of 28mm ancients using the Hail Caesar rules. The scenario (devised by John Savage) was a Roman baggage train in Britain being ambushed by the oppressed populace. Our group is still very much learning this rule-set, but found overall that it gave quite an acceptable result on the table-top. I've been sufficiently inspired to order the rule book from Warlord and am just waiting on it turning up.
Here's a few pics from the game (all the beautifully painted figures are Johns).
