I ought to be ashamed of myself, but it hasn't kicked in yet.

For the first time ever I bought a ready-made and painted item for any of my armies, but I found this Steryr plus 2cm Flak at today's fleamarket at only €5,00 and couldn't resist it.

I'll probably feel better after I painted the black gun barrel in a more suitable colour..

Bargain! Bit of applied mud and it'll look the business.

Found a few minutes to fiddle with my village well last night.

I made the beam slimmer and more irregular, and added some gossip benches.

I trust they'll look less like skateboards once painted.

Finished the first of the dug-in markers, and the fuirst of the bases.

I'm not displeased, though the next set of markers should be a tad larger. One learns.

Finally did some wurruk again on my 1/72 plastic early war units, based for scaled-up FoW, finished some bases too create some space for the next bunch.

Since I'm an equal opportuniy procrastinatot there are some Partisans, Early War Germans, Soviets and Poles, and the first of my revised dug-in markers.

I'm giving scenery another whirl. I designed a Russian village as paper models, I'm now trying to use those designs as templates for my other usual medium, coffee stirrers.

Progress on the village well.

The bucket started life as the point of a recently departed ballpoint pen. The "rope" is stretched sprue.

All that remains now is to paint bucket and rope, but that will have to wait till I wear different pants, Candy informs me.

First scenery item finished after the broken shoulder interruption: the village well.

The gossip benches around it remind us of the fact that well usually were a focal point of village life.

Even though I built it with my WWII Eastern Front in :72 in mind, naturally it will serve equally well for just about any other period as well as fantasy, with both 20 and 25mm figures.

The young lady is from an IMEX Wild West set, the sitting spectator is an anonymous Chinese figure.

Still sticking to my NewYear's resolutions, I actually managed to finish some stuff.

Image

Early WWII Polish armour, from left to right: TKS tankettes, I believe from the 1st Parderevski Mechanised Speed Bump Brigade, two WZ34-II armoured cars and three regular WZ34 armoured cars.

Three TKS-20 tankettes for support are almost done, had to find replacement guns for the broken originals.

If you read three books on Polish armour colour you'll get four or five rather divergent opinions, so I picked a scheme that I figured fitted the bill.

The models are all First to Fight, nice models, but a tad flimsy for the wargames table, so I'll base these to prevent any further mishaps.

Soviet and German early War armour is still somewhere in the painting queue also.
