Easter Plans

I have a couple of things to do over the holidays, which will be spent away as usual, so no painting but plenty of preparation work instead. The first plan is to base up the Artizan Designs figures for my late war German platoon, which can then be painted for use against my late war US infantry. I'd like to break away from Bolt Action and try out some other WW2 skirmish level rules, so this seems like a good way to go.

The second project is one I intended to do over the last summer holidays but didn't get round to. This is a third army for the Back of Beyond in the shape of a Copplestone Turkish expeditionary force. It looks like there will be at least one Back of Beyond game at the club in the next couple of months, which is great as it will hopefully inspire some renewed interest in a fourth club campaign, in which my small but well balanced Turkish force may even take part.


  1. Hope you have a good time Jim. I've just bought 'The Big Hurt' (set in the Huertgen Forest) scenario pack from 2 Hour wargames for my winter 44 project, so I'll have to get my skates on with that! Would love to take part in a campaign, so I guess I'll have to come up with a Back of Beyond force as well!

  2. Thanks. That sounds really interesting..have to take a look. I'm up for a BoB campaign..just depends if there's enough takers. I can lend you an army too if you don't get round to doing one of your own.

    1. Thanks Jim that's very kind of you!
