Those of you who are keen will recall that my plan for the 'collect and paint up an EW army in 3 months challenge' was to do a Crusader Squadron.
Those of you who are really keen will recall that I had supply problems and my 1st months' contribution to this army was a Dystopian Wars Chinese fleet, which is of limited use in Flames of War, in a desert.
Fortunately my supply chain problems resolved themselves (I even now have the Panzer II's I had ordered for Ben which was holding everything up, I haven't given them to him yet though, Mwuhahahaha.)
I painted and glued and decaled and varnished and I have now caught up, I have now managed all the Crusaders, that's 2 Crusaders in the HQ plus 2 Crusader CS and 2 squads of 3 Crusaders.
Somewhat annoyingly, after I painted up everything, I realised that the 3 Crusaders Ben had given me were in fact Crusader III's and therefore too modern. By this point however I no longer cared.
Without further rambling -
|1IC, 2IC and Crusader CS'|
|1IC, nonchalantly leaning on turret rim|
|2IC also leaning over side, looking for Jerry in the desert.|
|Crusader CS, ready to lay down smoke. (also with one of the only straight barrels in the army)|
|The eagle eyed will note this is a Crusader III. You can tell by the unbent barrels|
|The army so far, 1000pts(ish)|
Next month is what's left of the 1500 pt army. That's a motor platoon with transports and 4 37/42 portees. I have some already and the rest are hopefully on a boat from blighty, so hopefully I won't have the same problems again...
