Jack
I've just put up a new W.I.P. For my sword beach British still got lots to do. More Para's some commandos both French and Lord Lovats. Unlike the film he wore proper battle dress with a white jumper underneath  but try finding a piper mmm!

I've just ordered another batch of 6 packs of Dwarves this will give me another 18 bases for my LOTR game. Thinking of going back to Dwarve Goblin wars. That'll give me 36 bases of dwarves, nearly equal to both my Orcs and  Rohirrim. I use the Battle of Five Armies rule book for my games but I guess other rules would work just as well. Next up will be the Khan easterlings already got elephants for them.

The modern stuff is for CWC the Soviet VDV is for the big Cold War Commanders game in September roughly 6-8 commanders a side bringing roughly Bde-Division Battlegroups to the table. My modest contribution will be the 10th Guards Tank Division and a full VDV Regt of 3 Bn's.
Ref beautiful I don't think any of my armies are beautiful but they are big so swamp the opposition. Rather have a big looking game than the same size table with 7-10 figures a side.

Sean,

"...but try finding a piper mmm!"
I know Pendraken makes them.  I'd take a look at the WWI Highlanders, maybe even the take a chance on the Colonials (I know the Colonial Highlanders have a piper, just don't know how it will fit in with the 'pie-plate' helmets)?

Interesting regarding the LOTR stuff, and I'm a fan of CWC, wish I could be there for the big  'Hannover' fight.

And you're Sword Beach stuff is big and beautiful!

V/R,
Jack

Hi all
Back from the Middle East ( a lot sooner than I thought) but now back in Bavaria.
The sword beach project has been shelved at the moment but I'm working on my Soviet tank division and more LOTR
At the moment. Also just became a grandfather for the first time a few weeks ago.
