Some Perry Sprues and Bits

On the Sweetwater board (a German speaking online community with focus on historical wargaming), on irregular intervals a centralized order at the Perrys is organized.

Usually I'd suggest supporting your local dealer, but as the Perry blisters and individual sprues are more or less direct only (you can buy them at events like Crisis or Salute via Dave Thomas) this is a good way to save on shipping and even get a bit of a discount. Thanks to emigholz/Thorsten for organizing the whole bit. The last one was held before christmas, but as the Brexit (maybe) is right in front of us, we did a quick "last" one.This time I got myself

1 x GWW 3 German tank crew
3 x B 29 Wars of the Roses/EA horses
1 x B 69 British Zulu War command frame
1 x B18 French Napoleonic Dragoon command sprue 1812-1815 - single sprue

As with the crew, I use them with my Perry Miniatures / Rubicon Models Deutsches Afrikakorps project. Especially with the reconnaissance vehicles like the SdKfz 222, it is a must have, but gives more character to my Tiger I Ausf. E and Panzer IV.

The single horse sprues are for reinforcement of the Agincourt Cavalry (previewed on Salute 2018 and released in Dec 18 / Jan 19). As you get 6 bodies from each sprue, the latest cavalry set gives you 18 bodies and 12 horses in total, so with a the addition of the horse sprues, I can enlarge the knight unit by a bit.

The two command frames are going to be used for memorials / statues. I used the tomb stones and plinths by Ainsty Castings, now I am looking for some larger to put the groups of miniatures on to. As well, as the fact, that the Ainsty Castings are mixed sets, so getting the flat-top tombs adds up to a bit of a sum. So I'll have to build some myself from mdf or wood.

Had quite the long week, heading back to the desk now, bit of painting, bit of building. I'll keep you guys posted. Have a great sunday!
