Next Big Wargame Project - Sword Beach 6th June 1944 - Update 7

Updated: Aug 16, 2022

Getting into the final straight now although lockdown will highly likely cause a postponement on the game. Mar Stalin will not be happy... I have now managed to paint all the German defenders. all guns and artillery pieces now done along with infantry, medics and even suppression counters (wounded and dead Germans). I managed to get my airbrush out on the German models and had my first attempt at making and foliage to some SP guns. I was pleased with the effect. Some of the guns I have glued with their gunners into the Strongpoints for visual effect and others have been placed on bases to go inside Bunkers.

All my Commandos and Royal marines are painted (over 340 of them!) See here is the 1st Special Service Brigade led by Lord Lovat with his Piper Bill Millin (currently in 2 colour schemes). That comprises of No 3 Commando, No 4 Commando, No 6 Commando, No 45 (Royal marine) Commando and No 10 (French) Commando. In addition to land on the right flank is No 41 (Royal Marine) Commando from 4th Special service brigade, Both Brigades are supported by 5th Independent Armoured Support Battery - Centaurs and Sherman Op tanks. Next on the painting table are 3 SP Artillery Regiments and to re-base, SP AT batteries of M10s, 185th infantry Brigade and a Sherman Battalion.
