Well we have been busy here at Monty’s!! I have realised I could spend an age taking photos and maintaining my web presence at the expense of doing the work, which is a bad idea! So I have decided to do a SITREP about once a week and then add other articles as and when; I think this is the best way ahead but would appreciate any comments. I have also started to take photos in ‘The Rat Pit’, as the workroom is known (if you saw it, you’d know why!!), so less staged than they could be, but it is more time efficient!

So here goes, first up, some Ainsty Castings stuff – dungeon pieces:

And a jetty set:

I’ve also been working on the stuff I need for my Operation WINTER STORM games on the show circuit this year. First up, some Soviet T70 tanks. The one on the left is Plastic Soldier Company (PSC) and the other is from Battlefront.

And more Soviet stuff: PSC 45mm anti tank gun, Zvezda (from PSC) trucks and Battlefront Stalinets:

Now on to the Germans!! First up, Panzer IIIs – the 2 in grey are Battlefront, the camoflaged one (based on photos of the command tank of CO 11 Panzer Regt, 6th Panzer Division) is from Peter Pig.

And a PSC Panzer IV:

A 251/C, also from PSC:

The camo may seem a little strange, only covering the front, but it is based on a photo of a 6th Panzer Division half track during Operation WINTER STORM.

Next up, a Sdkfz 10/5 and Marder III from Battlefront:

And finally some supply wagons, all from Battlefront, and including some destroyed ones, ideal for Chain of Command Jump Off Points!

As I have said before, I am no great shakes with a camera, but I hope these are clear enough – enjoy!
