I still need to paint a platoon of four 3.7cm PaK36s, an 8cm Gw34 mortar stand, an observer team and an Objective, plus three more 8cm mortars to swap onto the existing stands so they are the correct type. The display board will be mounted into the frame I used last year, and I had the MDF and foam left over and ready to go. Some of the bases for the FJ have cobblestones and I wanted to have a section of the board match but I also wanted to match the rubble bases as well. Part of the board will have a bombed town and the other part will be a farm / vineyard. Since these are glider troops I also want a landed DFS 230 on the board, in the vineyard. Some wall sections I picked up from the swap meet at Historicon will do nicely as accent pieces and will go with my previously constructed Objective.
|Basic layout so far, the cobbled road will run along the walled courtyard.|
Wanted to get more done this week but the wife is on temporary military duty out of state and my boys have kept me busy. Next week I'll have some paint to show. Promise!
Also, thanks to Battlefront for mentioning my blog on their website! I'm greatly humbled that anyone there has noticed this little hobby log of mine.
