Along with the inventory of shiny things for the Harad affair, Brian brought around a bunch of things that were over-scale for his projects. However, they seemed to be adaptable for the 'Jono's World' project in some way.
This trio is interesting. I did have vague notions of constructing a 'cartooned' airfield, with airstrip, control tower, and dispersal bays. The addition of a fire service vehicle and a couple of aircraft transporters seems just the deal.
The two hoppers can be emptied by opening up their floors. Looks a whole lot like road construction to me. At any rate, this chappy will be the beginning of the Engineers' train.
The Fort Knox truck will become a battalion or battle group HQ vehicle, with aerials added.
And now for something completely ... different. Here are three Air defence... 'pods' with quadruple AA cannon. Obviously intended to be towed, they will require some kind of motive force - probably light trucks will do. They can be scratchbuilt.
Yesterday, Brian and his buddy, Kyle, turned up with some more shiny things for the Army of Tchagai. Not this heavy truck, though. That came from a toy sale at a well known toy store about a year ago.
My notion of having 3 figures per stand having met with stern disapproval from Brian and Kyle, it looks as though the Tchagai battalions will comprise 4 rifle companies (instead of my projected 3) plus a HQ company, like the British model. Something like this;
HQ Company with: Command stand, Signals radio stand (or vehicle), Anti-tank gun stand (?), 2 ATGM stands (splittable into 4 'patrol-sized' ATGM team stands), 1 AARL stand, 2 MMG stands, 1 recon infantry stand (splittable into 2 'patrol' stands.
A,B,C,D Rifle coys, each with:
1 command stand, 3 infantry stands.
All infantry stands have integral RPG-7 ATRL.
Perhaps that will be a topic for the near future...
