Some say the Devil is Dead...but more say he rose again and joined the British Army!

"Some say the Devil is dead...but more say he rose again and joined the British Army" - The Wolfe Tones
Well...this is another new project that I am working on...again, one of too many started, but hopefully, I will finish this one.

Combat Colours and Tim! are really getting into Ambush Alley/Force on Force (www.ambushalleygames.com) in 20mm for various time periods. I had some old Hotspur 20mm figures from both their Urban Troubles and Falklands lines and some vehicles for the 1970's and 1980's Northern Ireland. Plus, I have enough Argentine figures that I should be able to do some Falklands games as well. So, there you have it. This is what I have done for now.

The 'Paras' on strench of road outside of the "No-Go Zone" in Londonderry or Free Derry.

A section of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (RRF) and an unarmed Women's Royal Army Corps (WRAC) searcher setting up an inspection post with the green fields of South Armagh behind them. 

I am adding the label for "Falklands" for this posting as the Paras will also do double duty for future Falklands games.

It has been a while...

Well, work has been a drag and I have not had much free time. But this is some stuff that I have got done a couple of months ago and just have not been posted.

This is another figure for my 1920's Ireland. This is a 20mm Liberation miniature from the British Army set. So far this is the only one that I have finish.

This is a wonderful little charity figure for the gaming blog, "Matakishi's Tea House". I love the figure and bought one. It is site worth visiting: www.matakishi.com . I did notice after taking the photograph of the little bit of build up of the putty at the bottom of the belly, that will be some that I will clean off later and re touch-up with paint.
