Afternoon

I have a need to paint some figures, I haven't had a brush in hand for over a year, and I haven't done a "proper" blog here, so here goes.

The Riich set is possibly a difficult one to use, but I had an idea, after watching a Bridge to Far,

What if, they had a PR event to have a do over after capturing Arnhem, for real, with Churchill and Montgomery walking into Arnhem, past a sign post, to be recorded for posterity by the "paparazzi" of the time, a gaggle of war correspondents, which is possibly another figure set, which could be difficult to use.

The victims

And some help to create a road with a grassy verge for a base

Still getting used to Imgur after PB when down!

Is there anyway to download/link the Imgur photos to the blog, as the link option didn't seem to like any of the imgur choices?

Or is it easier just to load everything into an album on MM?

More once I have sorted out the photo link thing!

Regards

Steve H

Nice idea.
Just rewatching Band of brothers and have watched a bridge too far recently too.
To have the british paratroopers wiped out by a rest and refitting unit is too bad.
Then the bombing of eindhoven was crazy.

Saw that some photobucket images had fritzed out and I havent had emails from them in a bit.
Is Immageshack still around?
Might have to remember my password for that.

Morning

Other than a colour fill of old black and white film stock?

Thanks for anything you might find

Stephen,

Winston had been commissioned into the Hussars. The uniform he wore was standard Service uniform with the cap and collar badges of his old Regiment. His rank was that of Colonel.

As for Montgomery. He wore whatever he wanted. If he wanted to wear two cap badges, then he should have worn the cap badge of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment of which he was an Officer. Because he had not been commissioned or transferred into the Tank Regiment, he had no right to wear either the beret or Tank Regiment cap badge.

Chas
