 These have been sat on the bench a while but I've finally got them done. Raventhorpe M8 with a AB miniatures crew figures and stowage by various manufacturers. Anice model but it shares its hull with their M5, hence the stowage to disguise the front of the hull.

Saturday Rapid Fire

Managed a game at the Grimsby Wargames Society club this weekend. Danny provided the Germans and I brought my Americans. Very enjoyable game, with the Yanks getting the win after breaking through on Dan's left flank.

Next game either Cold War Commander2 or Blackpowder ACW.

Ready to Roll Marder 3s

 Dan and myself are planning a Rapid Fire game at the Grimsby Wargames Society ciub in a couple of weeks time. We are looking to use one of the scenarios from Richard Marsh and Colin Rumfords excelent Normandy Battlegames scenario book. The one we are going for is Across The Elle- June13th/14th 1944. Looking at the orbat we realised niether of us had a Marder self propelled gun! Looking through my resin stash I realised I had 2 of the Raventhorpe/ Ready To Roll models. These are avilable from the Rapid fire website Very good wargaming models with very little cleaning up required.

Quick paint job and just the crews to complete.
