VSF Brits vs. Skellies...

...x2.

Good evening,

This afternoon Robin and I got together, combined our two VSF and Skelly armies and brought them together.



My very first PIP rolls (one for each command) were a double six, so both my God element, and my Dragon arrived. Hurrah!



My very next bound the God buggered off! How rude to leave the party so early. Really.


As I gawped on in disbelief and the rather large gap that had now appeared in my plans, Robin advanced the Imperial Air Service up the right flank.


Not wishing to get double enveloped by the three opposing aerial elements, I charged the Dragon into the flank of the Airboat.


Success!


Ignoring the threat Robin sent his flyers into my right flank.


The Skelly Bows (their first outing!) bounced one of the flyers...


...and the Dragon roared to the rescue!


And then my camera batteries conked out. Bother it. Robin has taken a good number of photos that I hope to get hold of, but, in the mean time pop over to Robin's site and read the proceedings there.

I'll try again later.

  4. Paul, I gotta make use of the holidays as best I can - school tends to be all consuming during the rest of the year!

    Cheers,

  5. Thank you gentlemen. I can't actually take credit for the aerial elements - they were made by my mate Andy Gorman.

    In fact, the bulk of my VSF army was his before he decided to go 28mm! (Ok, it looks fantastic, but...28mm?!) Still, as they say, 20mm HOTT was the winner on the day!

    By the way, your 20mm Moderns look great. Do they mix ok with plastics?
