From SteveM: 15mm Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) Strike Force and Objectives (208 points)


Steve sends in a perennial favourite of mine: the LRDG, resplendent in their Jeeps, twin Vickers Ks and Chevy 30CWTs (a Canadian design, I can proudly add).


These 15mm models are from an out-of-print Battlefront box set 'Sting of the Scorpion'. Steve tells me that they can now be purchased in separate blisters but, if you're interested, be quick as they are slated to go OOP as well.


I love these sentries in front of their guard posts - poor buggers, must be a drag to continually be a target ventilated by these LRDG yobs.


Terrain does not score for the Challenge but, hey, you can't have LRDG without stacks of schit for them to blow up.


Here is Steve's painting guide:

'How: Primed grey, Vallejo acrylics, MIG pigments and washes for DAK vehicles
Base: Sand and Dex spackling on the base, cork for rocks, Behr flat
house paint to color with wash.'

This Chevy and it's Breda is just aching for a runway lined with Stukas and Junkers.
Steve has done a brill job with the desert camo on these Chevys.
These lads will give Steve a healthy 208 points. Great work (I wish I could play a game with them!)

  1. Those are indeed very nice. I d pity those guards, they're hard to miss in those nice white sentry boxes. :) I had heard on the TFL blog that a lot of BF kit is going OPP. Perhaps I better check out what's still available.
