..........and has anyone seen my blog rolls? A couple of 15mm ZSU 23-4 from Flames of War new Team Yankee range set around the time of the cold war in the 1980's, the pieces are resin with metal parts, they're not too bad apart from some damage to the hull (broken pieces not in blister pack either). Painted up for forces either in the middle east or eastern Europe and still in use to this day! Trying to use what I can for my modern skirmish gaming and have used some other vehicles from the range including scenery! Hit 1.5 million hits a while back but wasn't online at the time and in the last few days have lost both blog rolls ( I know a little careless but they have vanished) and I am currently trying to catch up and remember a lot, if you want to remind me of any just check the current blog roll to the left.
The acronym "ZSU" stands for Zenitnaya Samokhodnaya Ustanovka (Russian: Зенитная Самоходная Установка), meaning "anti-aircraft self-propelled mount"; the "23" signifies the bore diameter in millimeters; the "4" signifies the number of gun barrels. It is named after the Shilka River in Russia. Afghan soldiers nicknamed it the "sewing machine" due to the sound of firing guns. It is also referred to by its nickname of "Zeus".
15mm figures from Flytrap and Khurasan to show scale.
........in 15mm from Ironclad , Khurasan and Peter Pig! These were completed during the Analogue 2015 shenanigans but didn't count due to some scenery bias from the judges, anyway the majority of scenery (fences/buildings) is Ironclad(they were having a sale) apart from street lights (khurasan), telegraph poles (peter pig). There will be more additions, some already painted, some not........plus possibly graffiti and posters? Good pieces of kit from Ironclad.........
Not part of the shanty town but they were such a good price from Ironclad and when is there ever enough crates and barrels?
