I’m thinking I’d like to build a LRDG/SAS unit, really like the kitted out vehicles. I’d definately add some looted German kit to them as well.

My Warlord LRDG vehicles. Very good, and they have many types for different loads of kit / truck and jeep types.

@rot6 – Just my pre-built LRDG / SAS force. Didn’t get into action, I’m sad to say. But no worries! Now I have DAK forces to build and paint they can go up against!

Too many people have too much built and painted for just 24 hours work.

Did you get anything done or were you having too much fun interviewing people?

no painting, but I got my army built. Home now and doing some more clean up work on the minis so I can paint them

That’s an awfully nice truck for the LRDG (SAS?) – someone BYO’d I take it?

avernos

yes, Oriskany brought his as he wouldn’t have time to build, paint and run the campaign

Thanks @georgesealy and @avernos – Yep, those are my small 16-man LRDG/SAS force, with two 3-man 30cwt Chevrolet trucks.

Gaming at last, looks like every one is having a great time. Where did the SAS spring from, and lovely painted minis.

Thanks, @carabus and @doomzombie. – the full project thread is here. These minis actually had a rough start, but thanks to encouragement and advice from the community – managed to save them.
