I`ve wanted to create a small representative units of these for a while now.

So with some old Esci Napoleonics, a sharp knife and some paint, I`ve created these:

 all together

Finishing off odds`n sods, all told I must now have about two platoons of mounted Germans now 

2x Revell gunners
 2 Britannia Miniatures 
One is an SS Cavalryman, the other the "fat soldier on supply horse"
all together

Railway bits

Railway Bits

Bought these sheds at the model railway show last year cheap, a quick repaint and they`ll make useful sheds or shacks to fill open areas on tabletop


I turned this little one into a sentry box and built the pole from bits`n pieces
