Mike sent me some more mechs. Today's lot is a bunch of scratch builts he got of E-Bay. He sent me 6, and here are the first three. One is some type of Mad Cat, but the others are unknown to me. They look cool, and they guy that built them did a nice job with them. There's some rough spots on these mechs, but for the most part you can see them. With the black and red paint scheme, those flaws should blend in on the table. Mike doesn't game with them, but if he did, he'd have a pretty nice army of these by now.

Just finished my first Brit Armor platoon and thought I would share some shots of them. I got the whole boxed army to paint yet, but the first set is done. I think they will be fun to play in Flames of War being Reluctant Veterans. I joke all the time about them being 'timid Tommies' because of it.
Yes, that's a Firefly above. Gotta love 'em. I was introduced to them by way of Microsoft's Close Combat II. I was happy to find a Sherman tank that could shoot thru Tiger. Anyway, enjoy.
Here's a shot of one of the objective markers with a German command stand near it. I'm pleases with how it turned out. I tried static grass for the first time ever, and I've been painting for about 10 years now. I liked it. The burnt grass gives it a little something more.
Some of the items on the tank I wasn't sure what it was. Like that huge cloth thing that sticks out of the commander's hatch. So I made it the Union Jack. It seemed to fit and it brings the attention to the center of the model.
