We've got a Huey down, we've got a Huey down!

Posting has been a little slow lately especially when Anne O'Leary sends a message to post something, this is a 15mm Huey from Battlefronts Vietnam range, it's some scenery for my Franonia and modern shenanigans......

I have been painting but the picture taking and quality has been a little suspect, there's a game this weekend with the Rejects (I have missed about 5 or 6 on the trot due to work), have a good one folks!






Justin over at The Royalist Roundhead is having a giveaway to celebrate 50,000 hits, you get nothing for pimping it but that's not the point is it?

  1. Very nicely my good Sir. Good objective counter or just scenery.

  2. The only day I can't make this weekend is the Sunday. So I will have to miss this game as well. Huey Looks good. I have a hankering for some Vietnam conflict games just looking at it. Was Ray piloting it!!?

  6. Hey, nice one, Fran. Of course, I'd hate to have been on that when it went down! I also appreciate the plug! Are you and Ray actually playing any battles with all this kit, yet?

  7. That's a lovely piece of battlefield scenery, Fran. It wouldn't look out of place on a post-apocalypse board.

  10. Great stuff, both as terrain or objective-marker. If I would have to gripe I'd say you could add some burn marks, but that's just me being pedantic :-)

  11. Great looking display - I wouldn't have thought 15mm until you mentioned it.

  20. It looks great Fran! I understand about the picture taking and blog posting sometimes you have the energy to paint, but all the fiddly picture taking and talking about it just needs to wait sometimes.

  26. The Battlefront Huey - only marginally more expensive than the real thing . . .

    Sorry - nice work though ;O)

    3. And people thought I called you the Big Irishman because you're tall. Silly billies.

      Pffft, I'll never leave him alone. He's stuck with me.

    4. Thanks Dez but she's an Irish cailin and what can we do?

  28. Great bit of color, Fran!

    "Men, I guess we're going to have to walk out of here."

  32. I agree with Anne OLeary. Bout damn time! I've come to count on my Angry blog fix! Cool chopper - makes a good objective

    ReplyDelete
  33. Nice looking chopper Fran and perfect for attacking the idiots/citizens of Raynonia.

    Thanks for posting ya Big Irishman!

  34. I like! Great comeback post Fran.

    Model and paint on!

  37. Very nice, Fran. Really interesting element to put it on the table!

    ReplyDelete
  38. It looks like the crash was survivable at least.

  39. I love the downed Huey, very nice. Perhaps it's because of reading too many Heavy Metal mags when I was young, but a downed Huey in the jungle always makes me think of zombie American skeletons covered in vines. Is that weird?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Very clean work on that Huey. My father, who was a doorgunner and mechanic in 'nam would be impressed.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What rules will you use Francis?

    FMB

    ReplyDelete
  42. Fubar or Fubar Ultra but would like a modern bolt action or chain of command.

  43. Nice Huey Fran was pictures taken with your new camera?

  45. Love the grass and the branches on the base. Poor Huey!

  46. Looking good, Fran. I saw a huey leaving the air strip over the weekend. Thankfully, it took off safely. Such a cool sight to see. Hope you had a fun time gaming.

  47. Great piece of scenery you made there!
