Some more painting time this week, continuing the recent theme I quickly focussed my enthusiasm on some Persian light troops who I have had in the lead pile for ages. foundry figures these I think so pretty easy to paint. Although the slingers each had to have the sling attached which was a bit fiddly. I kept the colours simple as they would have been the poorer troops. As I somehow ended up with 20 I extended the bases backwards to give that feel of the unit being spread out whilst keeping the frontage the same, this seems to have worked quite well so I may use this idea again.

An odd combination but I am cracking on with various hobby projects helped by the fairly wet weather. Enthused by the recent Persian game I have pulled my finger out and completed another unit of Persian light cavalry (truth is they were part painted ages ago).

A return to Operation Sealion this weekend and the next stage of the German breakout on S-day plus 1. One of the key directions of advance remains North towards Canterbury and the German command is probing in several directions. One of these is along the Elham Valley along the B2065. Not surprisingly the British command in the area have identified the village of Elham as a potential holding point for the advance and pushed forces in that direction.
