I wanted an objective for my SAS team to take out and I thought a gun emplacement would be a good one. It's a Warlord kit and I have to admit I had no idea how to put it together and I found it a bit awkward. Not knowing my WW2 makes modeling the vehicles and gun kits a challenge.

Air Base Sign

The camp gate gave me a problem as it comes with a sign. Not knowing German I have no idea if what I have here makes sense. If anyone wants to correct me please do. Still have an issue with the fence as my wires too thick but I dont think it matters.

Building The Camp

I have put together the fences and a watchtower and painted them up. The fence I have found difficult because yo have to add your own wire. Printed acetate sheets are recommended but Ill use wire. It’s a bit thick but I’ll see how it goes. I’ve laid out the scenry so far. Still have a washouse barracks and fuel dump to add.

I picked up Sarissas fence kit along with a watch tower, wash house and barracks. I already have a few bits and bobs to add but have got to work putting my German airbase together. This isn’t really my period so I might make a few mistakes on the details.

Rules

This is my first jump into WW2. I was inspired by a magazine article that adapted the modern Black ops rules to an SAS raid in North Africa. The scenarios are split into three missions which include observing a base before breaking in and blowing up key positions. I’ve wanted to do this for some time but it wasnt until sarissa released their army camp set that I thought it was time to have a go. The scenery I need depends on the scenario maps from the article.
