Germans man the trenches.
Devon Wargames put on this large game of TFLs "Kiss me, Hardy!". The boats are from Warlord (I think) and are very good.
This slightly different game of BA (put on by local gamer Matt and family) was interesting as it was based on Operation Dragoon in 1944, allied landings in the south of France.
A splendid looking submarine! Definitely a nautical theme to several of the games this year.

A quick post to show some figures I've recently completed for good chum Orange Dave. Some Scarab WW1 French Chauchat teams.
The Horizon Blue uniform is actually the Foundy Night Sky triad. Rather enjoyed painting these characterful figures.
En avant mes braves!

Three smoke "blasts". A couple of sprays of grey primer, followed by a couple of pure white.
Three explosion "blasts". A couple of sprays of black primer, followed by a light spray of grey.
One poison gas "blast". Spray as smoke the hightlight with some green.
This pic might show the green-ish hue of the smoke a bit better. Simply a quick drybrush with Foundry Phlegm Green light.
These are the armatures on to which I stick the Woodland Scenics foam, using smelly all purpose glue from (UK) Bostik or Uhu. MDF bases with holes drilled for kebab or cocktail sticks.
A trick to help make them slight more durable is to prime the foam with very thin PVA before spraying. Make sure you allow plenty of drying time tho. Thanks for looking!

I hope to be running some intro games for potential new recruits to Sharp Practice soon and I thought these would help avoid any confusion as to which card represents which leader. Designed and manufactured by top chum Colin of Charlie Foxtrot Models.
All of my Leaders are based on 2p coins, so the 4mm magnet will hold them quite firmly. After my usual basing recipe (Americana Honey Brown, VMC Tan Yellow, VMC Dark Sand and Foundry Boneyard light) I picked out the numbers in thinned black just to help make them clearer.
