With only four more get ups to 'Salute 2014' and given this year's theme is D-Day, I thought that I would share some World War II related miniatures with you all. I was sorting through the masses of photographs that I have taken over the last six months or so, when I came across these. This was my contribution to the 'Santa Clause' an idea conceived by Ian, from 'The Blog With No Name' and magnificently organised by his lovely wife Cath. Whilst Christmas has now passed it only seemed fair to check with the recipient that they were happy for me to display them and when I was given the OK, set about choosing the best images.
Once again great fun to do as I'm always looking for an excuse to paint something new and shiny and so when the first things I saw on my intended recipient's blog were the 8th Army it was too good an opportunity to miss. This then is an 'Artizan Designs', British 8th Army Vickers MMG Team based on a 'Warbases' MDF disc. Good clean sculpts and plenty of detail to get your teeth into without overcomplicated things.
Rest assured I'm not planning any more World War II diversions just at the moment, but with 'Salute' just days away the wallet is starting to look a little apprehensive. I've no real shopping list this year, but I have jotted one or two things down that I might like to pick up if the price were right. Of course one of the highlights will be catching up with fellow bloggers at lunchtime, so who am I looking out for this year?
