Base Sick Instinct

DSCF2271Well I’ve finally finished what remained of my armies for this WW2, and about bleeding time too. Every thing after this is a luxury, so I can concentrate on a few scenics and the whole point of this activity tons of games. Hurrah! There’s a bit of work due on the storage front but by all estimations I should have these all stored away in time for… well in time to get them out for a game next weekend so long as tine is willing as we’ve off to the Euro Militaire show next Sunday. It’s always a difficult one to make into a family day out as the dominant species does appear to be middle-aged male virgins who have no idea how one should act in the presence of either women nor children, and the fact that many of them are mainland Europeans doesn’t help.

DSCF2267The best of the latest are the command bases above, again going for more of a mini-diorama look than a typical base.

DSCF2268This is the British Para Command base, with them taking cover behind a fence.

DSCF2269Likewise for the German Infantry Command, well I had half a fence section left, plus the luxury of a Kettenkrad.

DSCF2270Meanwhile the German Paras have choosen a more rural setting, covering behind a haywagon.

DSCF2272One of the regular bases with a bit of detail is this of a Tommy HMG crew legging it through long grass. As nice as these and the others look, and as happy as I am to have them finally finished I must admit I’ve grown sick of basing infantry over the past week.
