Goodies at Battleground 2019

Today's winter trip to Middlesbrough produced a few goodies. The weather was bitterly cold but I won't say it was 'Baltic' when it was entirely 'Northumbrian'.

First up is some vending machines from Ainsty.

Followed by some drinks cabinets.

Wonder if Coca-Cola will get upset if I paint them red?

And some arcade games.

Anyone for Pacman?

Some obligatory paint from Colonel Bills.

Some driveway clutter by Warbases.

Bits and pieces for my space troopers to hide behind.

I've been saving up coke cans.

Difficult if you don't actually drink the stuff.

This one probably contains vimto (anagram of vomit).

My new reading material.

A horde of Mahdists, wonder what I will do with them?

Highlight of the day was bumping into my old friend Mike Headden, looking at least a stone lighter than last time.

I failed to get a copy of Sands of the Sudan so reserved the right to not look too closely at Newline Designs figures. Their turn will come later.

WSS British Infantry

Another battalion dribbling off the painting queue.

They are green faced and I think are meant to be the Oxford regiment, don't quote me on that, I have lost my painting notes for them and I started them then abandoned them quite some time ago. Having health problems does not encourage a good memory.

They are destined for a bring & buy sale unless someone puts in a good offer for them.  I have more of them in the pipeline so let me know if you have any interest.

The figures themselves are Wargames Factory, 28mm and based for BLB. Flags are by Warflags and bases by Warbases.

In a Galaxy Quite Close By ....

Some space travelling mercenaries stop for a bite to eat.

Nice little place and it sounds a bit familiar.

Not much on the menu.

The Boss says queue up here.

Plenty of room inside.

(Needs some food making clutter) (Heading for the bits box)
