15mm Painted Franonian (IDF) Centurion Tanks...

...formerly Israeli but I got them cheap from a guy called Avi and a bit of paint job later.......

15mm Peter Pig IDF Centurions from their AK47 range and now in Franonian grey.....got a WW1 wargame this weekend with the Rejects (no Ray as he's working....cue insane laughter) and if you can have a damn good weekend but it's not compulsory!

    1. As promised:I spent two days thinking up a plan and putting it in writing for my sub-commanders. They ran into FJ with Fausts hiding in a village and before their infantry could catch up, the better part of an armoured company was smoked. After that, having cleared the village, we got almost no arty support and charged headlong into the forest, only to find more FJ boys and a Wirbelwind...
      The word disaster does not begin to describe it.

  3. You can have mine right now:I spent two days thinking up a plan putting it into writing for my sub-commanders. It failed.
    If for some inexplicable reason reality deviates from this projected end result, I promise to report in full.

  8. I think some mechanised infantry in Saracens and a reconnaissance unit in Saladins would go well with the Centurions perhaps?
