This little beauty is currently with my friend, Krisztian Takacs, in Hungary, but it should be winging it's way to me relatively shortly. I've always had a soft spot for the Rolls Royce Armoured Car, I think because there was a cut out about it in a Warlord annual I had.
Built in 1914, they were used during the mobile period of the Great War on the Western Front and also in Mesopatamia. They were used during the War of Inpedendance and the Civil War, though this one will be seeing service with my nascent Very British Civil War forces.
This is is a Frontline Wargaming model and while Krisztian was right that the finish isn't great, it was less than a fiver and I think it's painted up rather well. I like the idea of the Very British Civil War setting and I thought the original book was rather nicely done. The follow up books haven't delivered on that promise and I think if I do play more than a couple Very British Civil War games, I'll be doing my own thing.
This is a Rolls Royce Armoured Car in Bovington Tank museum. I asked Krisztian to base the paint scheme on this example, mainly as I reckoned that if I don't persist with the VBCW idea I can always use it for something else. My VBCW forces will be made up of my Soviet partisans and French resistance figures along with my British army chaps. I might do some British Union of Fascists in black, but only in plastic. I don't anticipate this will be a big period for me.
Though the idea of doing Black Shorts is very tempting...
