Western Desert Force #1

Here we have the first of WDF(T)'s HQ and Corps troops. As per my Megablitz Terms of Reference I've used what I had available which in this case means a HQ unit of a Vickers Medium II Tropical. Yes, I know the Vickers Medium was never used in combat but I like the look of it and it was handy. Slightly more on message for the rivet-obsessives is the battalion of Matilda IIs: 7th Battalion Royal Tank Regiment.

WDF(T) HQ:


The Caunter Scheme is much duller than the flash has made it.
I can't paint a straight line to save my life.


7th Battalion RTR:



Matilda is by Airfix, Vickers is by Frontline. All painting with decorator's roller by me.

On to Beda Fomm!

    1. Cheers Al! Yeah, get one they're cheap enough from Frontline Wargaming and really look the Early-War-Bizznizz!

  2. Great Tanks James. The Caunter scheme is a difficult one. I used Lifecolour's set and whilst the paints were brilliant, my masking attempts had to be redone a couple of times!!

    1. No it was all Brigadier Caunter's own work ;-)
