10mm early war Germans

I dug into the unpainted lead pile and did a bunch of 10mm Pendraken early war German vehicles. I bought Sam Mustafa's new Rommel rules which look very interesting and motivated me to get back into this scale, which I have always liked. The new vehicles are shown here mixed in with some Minifigs stuff that was already painted.

Cold War Brits and an Enginseer

Before going in for Canadians I picked up a platoon of Team Yankee British infantry and here they are. I quite like them - good scupts and the British 1980s kit is all pretty cool. The platoon has GPMG and Carl Gustav stands with a venerable 50mm mortar attached to the command team.

I also completed a GW Enginseer to keep my Leman Russ tanks rolling - pretty cool model.

Dollar store find

I found a die cast Loach/Cayuse OH-6 helicopter toy closely scaled for 15mm in my local dollar store so grabbed a couple for $2 each (nothing in the dollar store is a dollar anymore...). It has some goofy markings and is missing some detail.

 Here is before (left) and after (right) being airbrushed with primer, then olive drab, and the window gaps filled and painted blue.

The minigun comes from the AH-1 cobra sprue from Team Yankee where it is an option for doing an earlier Vietnam era version. I think it will stand in just fine for Vietnam or early Cold War games.
