My VBCW army is a project I particularly enjoy working on. With such an interesting setting, it is easy to get motivated into getting them done before Lockdown ends and finally use them in a game.
I got a Vickers MMG, a Peerless Armoured Car, and a Major and Warrant Officer done. My hands fought me the whole time, as they were shaking quite badly today. Still, they have a simple paint scheme so they came along quite nicely. Lets show them off!
Next up is the Peerless. This was a 3D print I did a few months back, one of my early successes. It is from Deweycat on Wargaming 3D, and I heartily recommend it.
With two MMGs, it can be a nasty mobile pill-box, giving me firepower where I need it most!
Finally, and the units I worked the hardest on was the command team, a Major and his Warrant Officer. They provide my High Command, and since I’m using Bolt Action rules, the ability to activate four other units is going to come in very handy!
All in all, a good two days of work! I had a lot of fun painting these guys up. Next up is another squad of BUF infantry and perhaps another squad of Territorials. Four squads will give me plenty of board control!
In non-tabletop news, I am super stoked to see that the Very British Civil War mod for Hearts of Iron 4 has come a long way in the past few months. I’m not affiliated with the project in any way, to be absolutely clear. I’m just super interested in it!
For those of you who are not into computer gaming, Hearts of Iron 4 is a grand strategy game where you control a country during WW2, from industry to fighting with divisions on the front line. The Very British Civil War mod is a hyper focused modification of the game that lets you command one of the factions in the Civil War, and decide the fate of the British Isles!
Being able to immerse myself both on the Tabletop and now online with friends, really means I can keep the creative juices going on making my tabletop army! I’m also using the mod as a gateway drug to get some other people into the tabletop side of things. I hope that the mod continues its steady progress, and if the guys working on it see this, great job!
But that is all I have for now. Happy Wargaming wherever in the world you might be, and stay safe everyone!
