15mm Modern British Army BsV10 All Terrain Armoured Vehicle or Viking for short.......

.........from Old Glory!

Received nearly all these vehicles for free from my Secret Santa last year, it took a while to build up the courage to make them (even after contacting Old Glory for a picture), not the best of sculpts and the picture didn't really help but in the end they turned out not too bad!

Not been posting too much but I do wander around the blogosphere reading and commenting on others but not as much as I like due to work and life kicking me in the groin quite a lot lately. I do hope to make Salute this year just for a look around and to meet up with friends.

Here's some pictures and please find the mistake which I took ages to avoid.............










One in the field.............

15mm Napoleonic Game "The Battle of Grudge Bridge"...........or is that cooking pot attached?

After my disaster from the mornings game, Ray was feeling cocky and demanded another game and more figures and I agreed as long as I had a chance of a win this time.
So I had to protect the bridge from the French (Ray)and his little gunpowder plot, Ray had one more regiment but most of his units were elite to my line class.


The contractual shot of the head honcho, big cheese, supreme leader and dictator of the Rejects......

Initial set up with my boys nearest the camera and the well named grudge bridge.....

The thin red line.......

The French move first.......

I expand to my left which turns out to be a mistake.....

The French head for my right flank in columns......

Ready for the French advance.....

The columns hit..........

I continue to do well on my left......

There goes one of the French regiments...........

The French columns win the melee and things look bleak.......

Especially as one regiment is routing..........

Ray looking smug which is his normal look to be honest........

On the left flank we are kicking French derriere..........

But on the right flank.........

Now Postie lets me know I have one roll of the dice to save these units and was the officer attached, I had to tell the little Stalin that it was a cooking pot but I would take any help.......

The cooking pot did not help.............

During this period the French sneaked two little stands on to the bridge........

I had nothing to stop the cheating French......

They placed their charges, lit the fuse and scurried away. they needed a 4,5 or 6 on a D6 to blow up the bridge and win the game.......

What a shame, I win.........


Eat my shorts Ray!
