And it's made three platoons, a company command, 4 lmgs from the weapons platoon and 3 82mm mortars, plus spares.

So, now I need to source 6 anti-tank rifle teams, and 3 61mm mortars. Where could I possibly find those? ;)

Excellent - thank you.   I always find it useful to see how people approach
a new army.   

Although I don't know a lot about this conflict (yet), it does seem that a
low level, 'bottom up' build is more appropriate and that the army pack is
perfect for a North Korean Company (with just a few extras needed).

Very useful to know.

It IS very impressive, isn't it !.

I've still got a brand new cutting mat waiting to go onto the table.

The one I still use is fine.....But a lot of the green film has 'come off'.......'Cos I've spilt* so much acetone on it.

Cheers - Phil. (What's wrong with the way I've spelled 'spilt'...it's the past participle of spill........isn't it ?.......Kitty....Advise please.)

Spilt was once the standard past tense and past participle form of the verb spill, but in modern English the word has mostly given way to spilled ... I blame the education system ... just can't get the teachers  ;) :d :d :d

Just ordered Soviet 50mm mortars and anti tank rifles to go with these, hopefully no one will notice...

That is lovely work! Really stand out against the lush basing which is nice for 20th century forces that are usually heavily camouflaged.

Hope to see them in some battle reports soon!  ;)

Inspiring as always.   Neat work Will. 

Its time to get some eye candy Korean range on the forum.

My North and South Koreans are getting prepped up for a Boxing Day battle as 1960s bush war Batasi rebel forces .  I was inspired by "Guns at Batasi" (1964) movie, and the Christian province - evocative of Biafra - breaks from the predominately Muslim  Zambalia Federal Republic in East Africa.   

The shift to the East allows Arab style buildings you find along the coast.

Since Leon shipped out the much needed Saracens and Saladins the ZFR have their armour. Troops are British Falklands.  The Batasi troops are  a Rowntrees force.  Allsorts.
One mercenary figure is Tiny Bill - a Timecast Soviet giant with a new beret head. 

I could not source Mini Con aircraft for Count von Rosen (converted Arrowhead figure), so he had to do with an HA-1112.

Images will follow.  :)
