Yep, very nice too although i`ve ordered another 18 figs off Andy Grubb (the crew of his tank landing craft) which will give me far more than i`ll ever need :oops:

That 105mm short howitzer would look good on a 'Colonial era' river gun boat ;)

I have a plan to re-run the Saafi landings game we did ages ago, on our 8`x4` table in Spain.

The table size allowing more room and stretching the board more, preventing the defender from reacting so quickly to the landings also isolating the landing beaches from one another a little :D

The ship is actually from Britannia Miniatures their German Armed Trawler, resin model with metal bits, comes complete with white metal crew and guns - I bought it to use as a Spanish boat for my Rif War project :D and sold the crew off - I crewed it with a mix of Andy Grubb`s Soviet Naval Brigade & Kriegsmarine figures when Spanish :D
