What’s on the workbench?

Today the “to do” list threw up that I should do some more work On the German armoured forces for my 6mm game set on 4th September 1939.

The game board has been ready for some weeks now In the shed, but is suffering from summer sunlight. Some of the “Noch” adhesive roads are beginning to peel.

Anyway, back to the preparation. I grabbed a pot of Brushscape “muddy green” to have a go at the bases, which I had previously covered in scattered fine sand.

As is my normal procedure, once a paint pot is open I have a look around the table to see what is waiting for that particular application. Today I not only painted the bases of the 6mm 1939 German armour, but the replicated units in 3mm*, followed by two 6cm hexagon bases for 1/1000 bases destined for the “Bomber” game, the new railway sections for my “Travel Battle” boards needed for Operation Sealion, some woodland for my “Bathtubbed Blenheim” project, a section of Milliput barricade, and the back gardens of several 6mm terraced house models.

  • Nowadays everything I produce in 6mm I reproduce in 3mm, just to give me more playing options.
