I've been toying with doing some Very British Civil War scenarios for a while now. They seemed to be a perfect fit for Memoir '44. I could use my 20mm partisans and British infantry for another conflict and be unconstrained by the need for particular marks of tanks or other things.
With that in mind, I picked up some Frontline resin stuff and played with it a little.
This is an armoured truck from Frontline's resin England Invaded Home Guard range.
Which inevitably brings this to mind. I saw quite a bit of Dad's Army when I was small and I'm ashamed to say, had a long argument with Donogh over whether the early episodes were in black and white. It later became clear that what had happened was that when I had first started watching the shop, we had a black and white television which we later upgraded to colour.
Well, I lost that argument.
I painted this as generically as I could so that it can serve any master and may possible end up being used by the Home Guard in Sea Lion games at some point. The body was sprayed grey because that was what I had, the coach work painted Vallejo Russian green with some highlighting. I suspect it will be transporting British Union of Fascists troops for the time being. I tried a little line highlighting with pure white which looked very odd up close, but actually makes the detail pop in a very pleasing fashion at three feet.
I added a registration plate on a whim, though it occurred to me afterwards that a yellow reg may not be appropriate.
