SPECIAL THANKS. I would like to thank Paul Watson for his sponsorship of several lead figure collections on this blog. Having decided to clear his spare/surplus figures, he generously forwarded them on with no other requirement than they deserved to be restored.

WW2 MACHINE GUN BUNKER, GERMANS & PARTISANS

Finished the basing of these late-war German figures yesterday. This now gives me enough to have a skirmish game against my Soviets, or even my Zubrowkan army (Grand Budapest Hotel). In addition to these, have converted three Soviet infantry into partisans, altering their heads with milliput. 

During the Summer I picked up some broken hard-density plastic guttering, by gluing two pieces together I was able to create a useful machine-gun bunker.

    1. I have three sets of house rules, my Medieval-Renaissance which I devised, my 18th Century which are based on a set by Peter Helm, and my 1850-2000 which are influenced by Featherstone. The latter are shockingly simple, involving a dice for every three figures firing. A five or six inflicts casualties but there are adjustments for cover, skirmishing, marksman, etc. Heavier weapons choose a target circle of impact, which is then determined by a dice as to where it actually lands. It is all extremely simple, with the minimum of accountancy. It totals two sides of A4, which we hardly ever pick up as a high dice throw is always good. But I never publish or promote them. I have been in enough clubs to value the choice of company, more than the rules.

    3. Any rules that don't require a degree in accountancy gets mine.

    1. Cheers Allan, its the guttering linked to a garden shed which I pulled down in the Spring. I'm happy with it.
