A long time with no posts

if anyone has still been checking in on this blog, I'm sorry it's be inactive for so long (nearly 3 years).
In that three years I moved back to Germany, my marriage broke down, I moved back to UK, and now I'm back in Germany. It's been a hectic few years to say the least. My Wargaming took a total nose dive as you can imagine no Mojo to paint or even game.

But past few weeks I've started to look into both painting and gaming again. So I thought I'd bring back the blog.

Guild Recce build Gazelle

One of this years Guild builds is a Recce theme so I decided to build an Airfix Gazelle for it.
Realised too late that I have left the transfers for this model at home in UK so it might not be allowed in the build.

The Guilds quick build
Again not much gaming going on moved back to UK got a job and slowly working at fixing our Edwardian house. Managed to slip away for a few hours to paint these for the Guilds D-Day quick build. I was always going to build these, they were part of my Guild build for last year, Pzr IV's from 21st Panzer Division. These are for the CWC Rules, Pendraken Miniatures.

While back in UK for Christmas. I visited Home Bargains while browsing I found some 1/72 scale models of Blackhawk and Apache helicopters. These were being Sold for a £1 each so I got three Blackhawks and two Apache. These are made by a company called Grafix they are a bit basic but you can defiantly tell what they are supposed to be. Well worth a £1 even if used to simulate crashed Helicopters.! Black hawk down springs to mind.

The Blackhawk.

The Apache still need to finish it off.
