I've just started a new book for 1938 ABCW, this time on the left wing, socialist factions. I've been looking forward to this for some time and now its here. Here is the first of a series of drawing which I am doing for the book. This fellow is a Miner and here's the picture.

Little Fat Chappers

Well I have finished the little over fellow and I have to say it has turned out well. He is a staff officer of the rank of colonel and I rather like him. So here is he. Soon hopefully he'll be gracing the front cover of Brigadier38 if all goes well with the game over the weekend.

Who ate all the pies?

This is the start for the cover of Solways Brigadier38 game. He and one other fellow is gracing the front of this new set of rules by Simon. I've gone for the Captain Manwarring look but a lot fatter and far more amateurish. I think I have caught the look well. Here is he for all you good people.

Royal Navy Gunner

Well here he is finished, a Royal Navy Gunner complete with some form of body armour. I rather like him and think he is rather VBCW. So here he is. Next project is a cover for Solways new rules Brigadier38, more on that soon.

Reenforcements for the Humberstone

As the Militia is just that I am starting on some extras, regular troops for the area. To start with I have finished some support troops, okay its a 3" Mortar and crew, to give support and aid to the militia. Here is the finished unit. Next on the list is two sections of infantry, a command section and a vickers section. These are by Bolt Action/Warlosr Games British and very nice they are too.

Well if thats not enough Here's the New One

As the title says, I have been a very busy boy and I am finished the sketch for the last AFV book fellow. I am going to leave to all to guess what it is, I think its quite an easy one. Look forward to seeing the answers. Here's Jonny as a well know film says.

Norfolk Yeomanry

Well this fine fellow is finished and that makes only one more to do before I have the series done. I am rather please this fellow, holding a cocktail and posing, I think he sums up what it means to be a Cavalryman is 1938. So here he is.

The Next AFV project

Here is the next one in the AFV Book series for Simon at Solway Crafts and Miniatures. He is a yeomanry trooper, officer, in this dress uniform as per VBCW background. This was meant to be the last one but now there is one more to do. Still its a noce figure and here is the latest stage the illustation is at.

Terry Thomas Anyone?

Well the good fellow is finished and I am rather pleased with him. In his public school cravat and university scarf I think he screams VBCW. So here he is.

I say Old Chap

Oh I say, the toff is coming along well and I am please with the way he is turning out. Public Schoolboy and University graduate coupled with county tweeds. He is the latest stage this fine fellow is at.

The Next AFVs Tank Fellow

Here is the sketch of the fellow in tweed. I have turned him into a bit of a public schoolboy/ university/ eccentric type which I thought was fitting for some the AFVs units around. I have given him a college scarf, school cravat and a cricket jumper under the tweed suit. I have also given him a deerstalker and there are goggles on top of this. Also there is a MP28 slung over the shoulder and a revolver in his pocket.

He Draws Closer

He is very nearly finished just a couple of things to do, like the holster and buttons and then done. Here's the latest on the fellow.

Cor Blimey its Alf

Today, amount other things I have started the seventh illustration for the forthcoming AFV book this time I have got for a historical illustration of someone from the Royal Tank Regiment/Royal Armoured Car Regiment circa 1936. This time I am trying, and no doubt will fail, to be as actuate as possible. So he is the fellow.
