Armoured Car : VBCW

We have another VBCW battle planned in (hopefully) a few weeks just need to sort a date. We have planned the 'Battle of Alston Moor'. The Anglian league from the North East will confront the Alston People's Alliance. The Alliance are a mixture of Miners, farm workers, disaffected workers of all types who have taken the opportunity of the Civil war to fight for themselves rather than the wealthy classes. They have been infiltrated by more radical left wing and communist elements as well.
Their problem is they lack any national funding at this stage so are poor on weapons and kit. A typical example of this is the recently converted armoured car above. The miners have cut up spoil wagons from the pit and simply riveted them onto an existing vehicle. At least they left a hatch on top to shoot out of..........
