Viet Cong and a UH-1 Gunship

I took a diversion in southeast Asia for the last 2 weeks - finished off a box of local forces and a Revell 1:100 UH-1 gunship for use in a modern Bolt Action adaptation for the next club night.

The VCs are 15mm from Battlefront, the UH-1 is perfectly in scale at 1:100. Nice little kit - but I'm all thumbs so made a mess of the tiny windows and resorted to painting them. Ugh...

Some Reaper Bones adventurers and a few ACW

The kids have expressed some interest in trying D&D so I painted up a few models from my Reaper Bones lot for colour. I have the 5th edition starter kit and that should provide a more than ample introduction to it. One of the nice features is that the Bones lot contains quite a few female models, and that helps broaden the appeal to daughters.

Plus a couple of stands of 10mm ACW cavalry to fill out the order of battle for a game of BattleCry I plan to host at the club tomorrow night.

Men-at-arms and billmen for Lion Rampant

I finished a batch of foot knights and bills/halbardiers for the next game of Lion Rampant. These guys fill out a 36 point warband of free company troops. The figs are from Old Glory and are really very good.
