Just a quick update as things tick over at Arabian Towers.
The Flamethrower is close enough to be a main gun for me (and a few others on the web in my researches) and although there were apparetly few Panzer III Ms on the Western Front in 1944, let alone Pz. Kpfw III Ls the HHNF rules allow the variance and the lack of Schürzen armour make it more visually interesting and distinctive on the table.
All light hearted historic pedantics aside quite impressed by these cheap kits. They are designed to be glueless snap-together, so hold well with an extra dab on glue - no holding parts together for ages only to find you've adhered a part to your fingers. There are some delicate parts (especially on the trucks) but where damage is likely the attachment onto the sprue is very thin to minimise the strain, very clever. Also all over the kit the holes, lug and pins have been arranged to make it (nearly) impossible to swap over similar parts in the wrong position.

I'm on my German armour first, as I started the Stug IIIs ages ago then stalled. As you can see the Panzer IVs are catching up so that the camo stage can all be done at the same time.
The accepted best way to paint the camo on tanks seems to be by airbrush. I don't have one of those, but I've found a nice tutorial on painting with normal brushes, so hopefully I'll be OK.

MacSver and I set down to playtest the rules from the Fightin' Fungi Kickstarter. They are applicable to the "Song of Blades and Heroes" standard rules, and sound like they might be implemented to the next full version, although don't take that as law.

So you can imagine my geek-like excitement whilst browsing my local B&M Homeware ( a UK discount homeware chain) these garden ornaments.
They stand at around 9.5 inches tall, made of a light resin, are fully painted as seen and cost the princely sum of £3.99. I bought both the 2 slightly different models as a test, but I think I'll have to go back and get a couple more. Just the job for a Fungal Forrest!
