Lanchester Armoured Reccon Squadron : VBCW

Picked these up at a show not so long ago....and with another VBCW on the way soon they needed painting. Very simple job but two more off the list. Our forthcoming battle will see the Royalists from  Carlisle and the Eden valley push east to attempt to take control of the Durham coal mines. I am putting together a fast moving and mobile army as this is likely to be a lighting attack.
......they are not expecting much opposition from the mining communities in the area 😬

    1. Are you spotted I am not very good with historically accurate markings ....I tend to see what spare transfers I have and bang on something that looks vaguely right. Of course as royalists they would be in the RAC anyway.

    1. Thanks for looking they are 1st Corps.....not cheap at £16 each 😩 But nice models, very easy to put together. Great fro 1930's but as far as I know none made it to ww2 ? As they made an upgraded 6 wheel version which definitely fought in ww2

  6. Here's a nice blog post, by Jim Duncan, showing how to build the Warbases mdf 28mm RR a/c. Jim really makes a good job in doing a step-by-step blog post and then painting the model.

    1. Thanks Terry......they are black undercoat followed by Games Workshop. Castellan green, followed by Games workshop brown stain Agrax I think it is called and then some dry brushing to highlight with a pale green colour can't remember what this was which brings out the rivets etc.πŸ˜€
