Ok, so after after an aversion to internal combustion engines that goes back to my early teens regarding WW2 gaming readers of this blog will know that I began a project to create the forces for the 1939 Winter War. Armed with a temperamental 3D printer I built up a pair of nice armies. I was then moved to look elsewhere for another project and plumped for the Fall of France. Before my printer went off on in protest once again I managed to get it to print a bunch of Matilda I tanks for the British and a selection of soft skins.

So, apart from decals and the bases I have the 1st Army Tank Brigade, equipped with Matilda I and II infantry tanks.

4 Royal Tank Regiment 

7 Royal Tank Regiment 

I might add another Vickers MkVI as Brigade HQ as I think I have a spare one somewhere in the box. Both battalions were seriously under strength before their moment arrived at the Battle of Arras, largely due to mechanical failures and other breakdowns.

Anyway,  I guess I should work on finishing these and move on quickly to the other units I’m planning for, ie 6 and 8 Durham Light Infantry and the 4 Northumberland Fusiliers, the latter on their motor cycle combinations. Plus supporting field and anti-tank artillery of course.


  1. Are you in danger of becoming a petrol head Colin? A born again tanker? Whatever, nice to see a new project underway!

  2. Very nice, they do look good on mass.
