With all the recent Warband Fantasy additions, we didn't want to neglect all of our other customers, so here's half a dozen fancy new vehicles to keep you busy!  

First up we've got some additions to the WWII British, with the AEC Mk I gun carrier, or 'Deacon' to its friends.  These were only used in North Africa and less than 200 were produced, but it's a distinctive piece of kit with its sharp angles.  Secondly, we've got the Leyland Retriever trucks, used throughout the war and of course famously by Monty himself.

Elsewhere for WWII, we previewed the Fiat 508CM a short while back and here it is!  This one comes with both roof up and roof down versions, so you can pick and choose as you please.  There's no personnel in it, but we are looking at getting some drivers and passengers sculpted to go in all of our vehicles.

Moving forward a little, we've expanded the Modern vehicle ranges as well.  Firstly, the Lynx recon vehicle, which was used by a number of nations, including Canada and the Netherlands.  And then we've got the absolute behemoth that is the FV214 Conqueror!  Developed in the latter stages of WWII, the Conqueror was designed to go up against the Russian IS-3 tanks.  It was produced from 1955-66 until modifications to the Centurion reduced the need for it.  It's an imposing machine though and the model looks great!

There's lovely.

I may have to order some of those rather speedily.

Conqueror and Centurion - They sort of go together like Yin and Yang, Heads and Tails, Scottish football and disappointment, Techno and injury.

Love the little Fiat ... and the Leyland Retriever ... one can never have too many softskins.

I don't do North Africa, but the Deacon looks absolutely marvellous.

The Lynx??? Um ... er ... M113 family? Excuse me as I go back to my books ...

OOHH! more stuff to paint, I will now live to 184

Love the Leyland Truck - Have to have some of those.

THe Deacon is technically later than I go in North Africa - I go up to and including El-Alamein, but I just might have to get a couple.  I have space in my Northafica British Storage box - what more excuse do I need?

If you left the chickens out last night, what was the point in going out at dawn to check - surely they get up then ?

It was earlier than dawn, Mark !!

Just wanted to make sure that...
a)....Mr Fox couldn't get at them.....and
b).....I hadn't left the live traps where the chickens could stick their necks into the gap and get their necks broken.  I don't want to see

(Mind you..The sooner this lot have all pegged it....The sooner I can have eggs that cost less than 14 a pop.......Two bags of corn for one sodding egg over the last couple of weeks !!  Angry)

I loves our little chicken friends, but I feel the wallet-pain. We're down to our last two girls only one of which is laying (the other hit the henopause a couple of months ago). The last one to shuffle off her mortal coil cost me a fortune in vets bills. I think I'd have had to charge about fifty quid an egg for it not to have crippled my overdraft...

Still, my toddler loves them and always goes out to say "HELLO CHIIIIICKEEEEENS!" and check for eggs each day Smiley
