Ross Hour

Here’s a quick snapshot of a quick fix in my aim to have a Ross Kemp figure for the off-the-cuff Afghanistan project I’m working on as a result of going to Salute and having so much fun playing a game hosted by the RAF Wargames Association.  as seen below. Of course there’s not much call for presenters of programs on the Afghan war in 28mm so I thought I’d have a bash myself. The key features of reporters are quite generic, like Evan Wright in Generation Kill, you need an oversized helmet and flak vest, and they should be in Navy Blue. I should have studied a photo to get the features right on the vest but hey-ho it will do being as it is a fast conversion ( a Ross job!) of a WW2 Brit Commander with my first use of that green stuff. Not bad even if I say so myself.

This short detour into all things Afghan was borne of a typical show folly were something just grabs you, and the game itself was one of the simplest on offer as you can see. The mad and loud enthusiasm behind it was what really sold it to us, with the Slug also impressed by having the opportunity of having pieces running around with SAWs on full auto-fire for the bulk of the play time.
