The Line

Many of us had Grandfathers that fought in WWII, some of us served during difficult times, This is for all who wore a uniform and for those that paid the ultimate sacrifice. Never forget.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
Taken from: For the Fallen - Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)

Some Afrika Korps from Singapore

These are pics from a mate of mine in Singapore, I really need to get going and start painting figures now. When we originally startted in 20mm before converting to 15mm we did the desert war and  it will be nice to get back there.

I am looking forward to seeing some battle pics with these on the table. They look really good.

Some pictures of the table that was set up at the hobbies fair in August 2014. We had a lot of interest from the crowds which was really nice, having an appealing and scenic table definitely helped to attract a lot of attention, All the terrain is scratch built.
