and more 15mm armies - the Seljuk Turks

And another army. Or part of it anyway. Seljuk Turks. All 15mm Essex figures.
First the Turkomans. Each unit focussed around a colour but with variations.

And the seljuk types with a unit of camels from somewhere.  

More to come after next photo session - heavy cavalry and infantry. 

more 15mm ancient armies - philistine / bibical

This Philistine or bibical army is also on the list to go.  There are a lot of them. 20 chariots and 320 infantry and other odds 'n' ends. All 15mm Essex figures.
The whole lot and the chariots.  

Then there are the javelin and spears. Lots of them. 

And the skirmisher and javelin and pointy-stick people.  

 And always scope for jokes about chaps on their ass.

First of armies for sale - mongols

Just going to post a few pictures before I pitch the armies on other sites. First up are the mongols.  All 15mm Essex figures.


Breakout Normandy - comparison of big and original versions

This is how my double-sized version looks against the original. 

I may have said in an earlier post that the idea was to fill a 6 foot by 4 foot table with a boardgame that could stand beside a miniature game and be just as impressive a display.       

And here is one of the key areas on both maps. In some games, it's almost compulsory to send 7th Armoured and the 101 tigers to Villers Bocage.
