Cromwell Troop Leader

As part of the Point 213 project I needed one extra Cromwell.  For the big game this tank will be part of the Squadron command.  For other game this tank will be the troop leader for my Cromwell troop.



Anyway, not much more to say.  Just another tank for this project.  This one is also a Warlord plastic model like the others.

Cromwell Company (Squadron) Command


These are a couple more British Cromwell tanks for the point 213 game.  These represent the CO and the 2iC of the squadron, or company.  These will be controlled, in the game, by one play who will also have an additional Cromwell to command.


These are Warlord plastic models just like all the other tanks for this project.  Not much more to add other than I am getting to be n expert in building and painting these (ok not an expert in painting them).

'Final' British Units for Point 213 Game

This never ending Point 213 project might actually be coming to an end.  I have finally completed the last of my British tanks for this project.  I cheated a little and decided to drop three additional tanks from the game but I might change my mind again...


I was planning to feature all the new additions to the collection in this post but Blogger is acting funny so I will leave you with just the group picture for now.  I will do separate posts to detail what has been done.  You can also check out these previous posts for this project.

Rach Army Update - CAV


I have now completed 4 CAV models for my Rach army.  I have really enjoyed working on these so far.  I have also been working through the rules and I may be doing a review at some point in the future.  I still have several more models to paint but I am working out how to organize them into units for game play.  Keep an eye out for more updates on this impromptu project.

Rach Emperor - CAV

Time for another installment to my CAV Rach project.  This time we have the Emperor.  This thing is huge!  It is mounted to a 40mm hex base, like all my CAVs, and it barely fits.  The 25mm base supplied with the model would just look stupid.  Like my other models this is in the Bones material and has similar limitations as a result.  The shear size of the model allows for a littler better detail.  I really like this model.

Rach Conqueror - CAV

Next up for the CAV Rach project is the Conqueror.  This is probably my least favorite of the Rach models so far.  It is blockier and more angular than the other Rach models and doesn't really fit the style.  This model also seems to suffer from some quality assurance issues.  Of the 4 I received 2 had incorrect parts and could not be used.  I am turning those into wreck markers.

Rach Kahn - CAV

The Rach Kahn is the next addition to my CAV: Strike Operations Rach army.  This is a light Recon CAV.  I am not sure how to properly use this in the game yet.  It is a quick unit that should provide some bonuses for shooting somehow.  Oh well, the model is cool and it was fun to paint.  I didn't spend a lot of time painting this as the detail of the model does not warrant the effort.  It actually looks much better on the table then these picture would lead you to believe.
