I managed to get some microarmor done this weekend, as I'm working on a Hungarian force for IABSM: five Turan; five Toldi; and five Zrinyi Spgs. All GHQ.

Got the 6mm WWII Hungarians finished. 160 little guys altogether. I used the Baccus WWI late War Germans for most of them and a pack of GHQ Hungarian heavy weapons for the support teams.
And also from GHQ: five Hetzers and three Sdkfz 10 with 37mm AA.

And for SE Asia some extra rice paddies- enough to cover 450 sq inches. Amazing how many paddies needed to do the Burma 45 Pyawbwe mini campaign from Stephen Philp !

I'm running a SP F&I War game which is the raid on Ft Ligionier in 1758, so I needed a few more items: 26 horses (so the Native Americans have something different to go after); 30 NC Militia; 13 Troupes de la Marine; 15 Canadian Milice.

I put together and finished four Sarissa Far East mdf buildings (thanks for that tip). It's for a 20mm CoC but the 15mm stuff looks right for 20mm. They are small buildings in real life so just dandy for the bigger scale.

In my quest to prove that you can never have enough trees for all occasions, I just made ten feet of road side trees for autumn 6mm games.
Planning on doing some more late war Hungary IABSM and wanted my roads lined with brownish red trees.
It's a sickness!
