|Should be enough of the single based French line colonial infantry for pulp uses.|

I finished a platoon of Panzer III Ns yesterday. I have continued use of colour modulation and working on weathering techniques. I think these are a bit better than the Panzer IIs. Using decals for the numbers and balkankreuze worked a lot better.

|And here the extra command groups have gone to give a 24 figure unit with one command group.|
|So I have a total of four officers and three pipers.|
|As for the other ranks... those tartans and stockings are enough to make me never do a Scottish unit again! The 42mm Scots are much easier!|
So that leaves me with one lancer squadron to finish this 'army'. I doubt that I will do a version of this army based on elements - I'll leave that to 20mm.

|OK, One building, one statue. With all the Chinese figures I'm making I needed a bit of architecture!|
|The building was off ebay - nice size and scaled OK for 20 to 28mm! Should be a very useful piece of terrain.|
|This rather imposing structure came from our local aquarist store. Again, should be useful for a number of scenarios.|
In terms of figures, 28mm individual ones should be finished for quite a while apart from 'monsters'. 20mm for larger scale battles - got a prototype hopping vampire, actual army... Jaclex are supposed to be bringing out a range of Colonial era Chnese this month, so that should provide a good basis.

The Rose Colonial British are actually quite versatile - pity there were only 4 figures in the range (plus a casualty!). The officer is Jacklex.
|Having said that, the Rose ACW figures make quite good French in this scale. Next to him, the all blue figure suits as either Royal Marines or Germans. Of course, Germans could also be produced by painting the figure khaki!|
There are lots of other variations possible. Add in the use of Jacklex figures and I've got quite a project/projects ahead of me in this scale.

|Finished the next battalion of the 1897 Russian force and think that should do for now. Touching up the British figures can wait a bit longer.|
|Infantry on the left are the newly completed ones. Nice thing about this army is that I didn't need to paint half of it! My total committment consisted of 2 infantry units, 1 cavalry squadron and 2 guns.|
|Left flank, only figure I painted myself if the gun! Gun crew, both infantry units and both cavalry squadrons are 'as bought' except for the bases!|

|Got to Wisbech a bit early so wandered around for a bit. Went into a PC Games shop and...|
|This one reminded me of the ships from the city of Titanica from Stingray. Couldn't resist, and will provide the various sea peoples I have for the pulp games with some transport. Not very Lovecraftian but...|
|Haven't a clue what I'll be using this flyer for but looks like a good way for the citizens of the future to get around in.|
As an aside, teeth OK apart from getting cleaned, next visit in six months.
