We played with shiny-toy-soldier style Airfix figures and some other bits from Armourfast, Zvezda and the like- with improvised, toylike scenery to match,. These included a hastily rigged up couple of woods made from a chopped up old Christmas wreath, a doormat 'ploughed field' and roads made from cut-up mousemats from the poundshop. The classic old Airfix cottage, Inn and Church are now being sold by Dapol at a very reasonable price. You may recognise them from all sorts of classic wargaming titles from the '60s onwards.
we played an imaginary German invasion of the sleepy
Sussex village of Ample Parking.
Fritz has holed up in St. Mandy's, the bounder! Hope he
keeps his jackboots off the hassocks.
Plucky Brits rush to the rescue.
A Cromwell ruins the vicarage lawn, but it's for a good cause.
They don't like it up 'em, as a wise man once
All in defence of next year's carrot crop.
Just this PAK 40 to sort out and we can send the Nazi Sealion
back into the channel.
