So now I sit with about 300 figures to get painted and at least half a dozen vehicles to build and paint. They were the priority project being as I had bought them I should get them completed and some use out of them. However the Alder 6mm Russians I picked up at Triples are now top of the list because of the BKCII game planned for the first club meeting after New Year which I am supposed to be running.

BMPs and T54 with the chinchilla sand and paint mix.
Close up of the T54
T62s with chinchilla sand mixed with a dark brown commercial flock.
More T62s with chinchilla sand and commercial flock mix
M113 with plain chinchilla sand too light and lacking in texture so due for some new bases.

An update woohoo as my daughter would say. Bought some 6mm houses from Najewitz Modellbau which I have to admit provides an excellent service, models ordered on Saturday from Germany and they arrived Friday. Well I would have got them Friday but even free post they were a signed for delivery, no one home and going to Paris on the weekend so I had to wait another week to collect them.
Some pics of the models.
The school building
The tenement block
The apartment block
The Normandy Row Houses
The first three are cut from a very thin MDF like material the others are resin cast and very nice models. The only thing that really needs doing is to insert an interior to make them feel a bit more solid, but they go together well using PVA glue which seems to dry very quickly .
