Magister Militum Mitanni

10mm Mitanni, all now finished.
A little favoured state in Wargames, wedged between the Hitties, Asyrians and Egypt, one of the first nations to use chariotry en masse under a feudal system, and under MeG quite tasty with skilled bow chariotry, and lots of it! Some is even superior too!

Found my missing chariot that was going into my camp, so here it is!

REME anyone?
Ohh, that will cost ya!

Chariot on its own.

It is now safely glued on.

Here, after a good few months off this project, it the army completely finished. All figures are Magistar Militum, and I've had some fun painting these.

One elite chariot that had escaped last time, taking my elite count to 16.


Six extra vassal chariots. Average chariots to all the MeG fans out there...

Drive by shooting?

'Line' chariots, as good as the vassals, but different crews.

Well, not all are as good I guess! 

Making up a TuG

Generals, you can tell, they have accompanying foot figures.

At present, this unit of  Alik ilki spearmen …

For Chad, LOA Late 17th Century French

Hi all,
Chad asked me to paint some French from the LOA era, so, furnished with details, here they are. Chad will add his own flags and bases later. I really enjoyed painting these and marvelling at the sculpting.
I only hope I've done Clib's wonderful sculpts justice.

Two Cruel Seas

Last night, we broke out the Cruel Seas, with four of us playing, and three fleets, we decided first off that my British fleet should take on John's Germans.
John wanted to use his Sboats, as after four games, he still hasn't launched a torpedo.
We decided to play 'Destroy the convoy' as we had three tankers between us.This was an excuse to finally get my Fairmiles on table.

We had two Fairmile 'B's and one Vospers I and a Vospers 2 on escort duties. John fielded four S100, gunned his engines and came in to attack.

Two more S100s appear, all up gunned with quad 20mms too.

The first S100 run by Mike puts an eel in the water to scatter the convoy, while Dave swings a Vosper in to intercept, but at this range, the smaller guns will be difficult to hit with.

But a Fairmile B, with two six pounders, is a difficult proposition, as their range is massive, and our dice were rolling very low!

I peel off to deal with the second two S boats, while the tankers start da…
