Chain of Command, covering actions of the US 29th Infantry Division in Normandy. "29 Let's Go" is 32 pages of goodness for less than the price of a pint. Scenarios, background and special amendments make this supplement both a treat and a bargain. I am looking forward to running the scenarios for the local gamers, espescially as there are no Tigers!
My other purchases have been from the Plastic Soldier Company, with a box each of their Early War German Infantry and Late War British Infantry joining the painting line. The Germans will provide opponents for my BEF Highlanders and French infantry while the British will bolster my existing platoon to enable me to field a company for Battlegroup Overlord games.
The other platoon involved a bit more time and effort, but was quite rewarding to finally get painted. I have had these original Bolt Action figures since they were first released many years ago. I never had enough to make a full platoon though as for some reason I didn't buy enough. Then I decided to reduce my collections of WW2 figures to just 15mm and sold of the painted figures I had. So these sat in a drawer, ignored and forgotten for a long time. Then, following a moment of madness, I contacted Warlord Games and just asked if they still had the original figures or molds? A very nice chap called Nick spent some time finding out for me and then got back to me to say yes. So I spent a few quid and finished off the platoon. Having spent a few extra quid on figures in a scale I didn't use I then spent several days painting and basing them. I actually quite enjoyed painting them, the figures are lovely to paint and I still rate the Paul Hick's sculpts as some of the best out there.

Well, that's it for now. I am off to pick up the in-laws from Exeter in a little while, so wish me luck. Hopefully my ears will be able to stand up to 3 days of constant, inane chattering that always accompanies the meeting of my wife and her sister. Have fun and keep rolling those dice.
