Flashpoint Loot

Since I'm recycling old material that I haven't posted, while Elora is settling in; here's a pic of the other stuff I ordered when I got the Flashpoint Moderns a little while back.

The moderns are the two little bags at top right.
The rest is stuff from the Vietnam range. I went a little crazy and got:
  • ANZAC Platoon (in the new packaging top left)
  • ANZAC Weapons Platoon
  • Main Force VC Platoon
  • Main Force VC Support Platoon (RCLs and mortars yay!)
  • Local Force VC Cell (essentially a platoon)
  • Local Force VC Support (as well as weapons this contains nifty things like pungee pits and tunnel entrances)
  • and a US LRRP platoon

At around 30 figures per box - I've got a lot of lead to paint!

Warthog - It's not a puma

A few months ago I bought a diecast A-10 from the Toyworld in the Queen St Mall. At $9.95 I couldn't pass it up. If only I could get Blackhawks for that price!

It's a girl!

Not a lot going on (on the miniatures front) at the moment, because of the recent arrival of our first-born, "Elora May", on the 15th.

I had vast plans about trying to use a little bit of my leave to get some more painting or terrain done, but it was not to be so.
I addition, my powerbook hard disk up and died so I've lost all previous stuff completely.
New drive now though, so at least I'm up and running again.
Back at work and busy, so I'll leave you with a few delights until I can get into action again...

I've just seen two posts by an amazing 15mm painter over at the Ambush Alley forums.
Check them out!

Also while I've been "offline" Rebel minis have released more Sahadeen!

QRF have also expanded their modern British line (no pics yet, unfortunately).

And finally, the local guys at Flashpoint have pics up of stuff coming into the range:

Vietnam Civilians
The watchtower

and also pictures from the recent playtest of the new rules!
