Back of Beyond Expedition Extras 
With the Back of Beyond campaign on hold for the moment, I'm turning my attention to the extra bits and bobs that I'm assembling to complete my Dinosaur Hunter expedition. The latest addition to the painting queue is a Warbases Tchanka, which comes as a flat pack kit of lasercut mdf and card components. This was a right pain to put together, even if the instructions were very clear and easy to follow. Needless to say there was much effing and blinding along the way...
The main problem was the articulated lasercut card wheel arches, which fell to bits and had to be replaced with scrap card parts cut from the leftovers, although once coated with copious amounts of superglue the finished model is quite sturdy, The crew are Copplestone White Russians to fit with the rest of the army, which features a unit of mercenary White Russian tatty infantry. I now have ten Chahar Mongol irregular cavalry to base up, which I'm planning to crack on with tomorrow.
