A quick show off post today for some early war British Light "Armour".

We have a Desert Campaign starting soon so these will be in action in a couple of weeks time along with a new CS9 Armoured Car (also on the blog post).

The models are 28mm Warlord Games with a mix of Warlord and Perry Commanders.

With the recent Blitzkrieg Miniatures offers I have got a house full of early war vehicles, so this is a good start.

All the best

I love this sand/brown/slate gray camo!
Painted it on my desert Matildas years ago.

Would you have links etc info regarding it?
(Nevermind, noticed the camo name, Caunter Scheme, at your blog -thanks!)

28mm Mk VI?

I thought this thread was about a rare variant of the German Tiger tank armed with the Guerlich squeeze-bore tank gun.

What do I find? A couple of lousy British light tanks.

So disappointed.

I can't see the magnets on these. Are they underneath?

Cheers all,

Blutarski, surely some paper thin armour and an MG is more exciting than 100mm of armour and an 88, where's your sense of adventure !

4th Cuirass, I based them in a three on a table sized magnet, just for you :-)

Hi Yarkshire Gamer -

" … surely some paper thin armour and an MG is more exciting …"

Dunno. Didn't most of them end up as stationary kiosks on the road between Thermopylae and Athens?

No, that would have been "Panzer VI Ausf. E/2 mit 2.8 cm PaK".

Besides, is there any evidence that they were actually ever employed at a desert?
