Renedra 1/56th scale 28mm Mud Brick House continued

I've ordered some 28mm scenic items from Black Cat Bases, farm implements, tools etc, to liven the house up a bit, they havent arrived yet so in the meantime I've added a couple of pots and an AK.
A couple of close ups

The Lambaste Family transport and some walkers

More Walking Dead stuff, nearly bought a resin 28mm pickup for a silly amount of cash when my son suggested looking in toy shops. The Land Rover is by Burago who make toy cars, its a bit over scale at 1/43rd but it looks ok. Oh is cost 99p !!! Dougie
The Family Transport, the diecast's been tarted up a little, I went for the worn post zombie apocalypse look.
Some walkers, I'm up to 15 now, a mixture of Studio and Heresy, couldn't resist Mr. Jackson!

28mm Afghanistan - Skirmish Sangin

As regular readers will know I have quite a sizable 20mm Afghan collection, since the advent of "Skirmish Sangin" I wanted to start a collection in 28mm using the wonderful Empress and Eureka Miniatures. The system is very low level and you don't need a large collection.
In relation to terrain I've used my 20mm stuff with the obvious exception of buildings, the crops arn't as high as I'd like but you can't have everything! If your interested in this system check out their blog below
First off are a couple of Photos of my first Empress figures, out of interest there's a full tutorial on the skirmish sangin blog on how I painted the Brits and the joy that is 28mm MultiCam!

3PARA fireteam
Taliban Fighters
Next up are the figures in theatre, the whole board is only 3 feet square and you can have quite a good engagement of something of this size.
Some views around the table
The Brits have occupied the building while the insurgents skirmish forward
And lastly some Taliban level views! Dougie
