1/300th Modern Desert War Brits on eBay


With time at home to sort stuff like this out, I'm now selling a huge, fully painted, mostly Heroics & Ros 1/300th micro-armour British Gulf War and earlier (or, as it has Challengers AND Chieftains, something that could also be used for Omani's, or even as part of an Iranian armoured force?) battlegroup.


As well as the tanks and APC's there are also a host of options including air support from a Tornado, as well as some fairly retro mid 70's and 80's support vehicles.



This is all just part of an even larger collection which I had when much younger and is now being downsized to more manageable proportions.

The auction ends on April 5th at 8pm BST, the models are almost all Heroics & Ros but there may be a couple of other makes in there as well for some of the vehicle types

The set includes:

  • 13 Challengers
  • 12 Warrior IFV's 
  • 20 Chieftains
  • 10 Saracen 6-wheeler APC's
  • 8 Saxon 4-wheeler APC's
  • 15 Scorpion/Scimitar light tanks 
  • 4 Striker (Swingfire?) ATGW variants on the Scorpion chassis
  • 3 Ferret recce vehicles 
  • 5 Long wheelbase and 5 normal Land Rovers 
  • A command set of 2 FV432's and a command vehicle variant 
  • 1 Tornado, which is painted with Saudi roundels (so it only needs a couple of blobs of red white and blue to restore to RAF service if you so wish)

This lot would set you back just over £50 in unpainted lead from Heroics and Ros if you wanted to buy them today (tanks are 75p, other vehicles are 65p each according to their website), but these guys are good to go right now straight out of the packet - or with a simple and very quick wash with something from Army Painter and perhaps a drag over with a drybrush they'll really "pop" even more.

The models are packed and ready to be despatched promptly on receipt of payment. I have worked out that I can print postage from Royal Mail online and drop them in a post box at the end of my road as part of my one legally-permitted self-isolating walk of the day, so no worries about any delays in getting them to you either

10% of the final price will go to SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity supportiung ex-service personnel and their families across the UK.

1/300th US Moderns on eBay

The seemingly interminable modern 1/300th recycling/refurbishing project grinds on, this installment being a rather low-tech announcement of the sale of about half of the US armour collection which I've been working through.



They are on eBay now via this link

The set is suitable for Team Yankee (assuming you're playing in a proper scale for moderns!), Cold War Commander, Oil Wars, Modern Spearhead or other similar division/company/batallion level Modern or ultra-modern rules.




The models are all (I believe) Heroics & Ros, and are painted in a rather fetching Gulf War era MERDC 4-colour cammo scheme.

The set includes:

  • 16 M1's
  • 17 M60A3's 
  • 2 M901 ITV TOW
  • 27 LAV with 25mm turret
  • 10 LAV with 90mm turret
  • 1 LAV ITV TOW 
  • 1 LAV Command
  • 10 LTVP/AAV 
  • 6 M2 Bradley 
  • 6 Jeeps with TOW 
  • 4 Hummers
  • 1 M577 command
  • 2 Chapparall AA missile
  • 1 DIVADS M113-mounted 25mm AA 
  • 1 Apache helos
  • 2 Cobra helos  

Both helos come with plastic rotor disks - the disks are fairly old and have gone rather grimy and opaque but hey, they are still rotor disks and they're a little hard to find these days.



This lot would set you back around £80 in unpainted lead from Heroics and Ros if you wanted to buy them today (tanks are 75p, other vehicles are 65p each and helos are £3-£3.50 each according to their website), but these guys are good to go right now straight out of the packet - or with a quick wash with something from Army Painter and perhaps a drag over with a drybrush they'll really "pop" even more!


The models are packed and ready to be despatched promptly on receipt of payment. Postage is charged at Royal Mail small parcels cost, no markup for 'packaging' or the like.



10% of the sale fee goes to SSAFA the Forces charity as well.

It's A Lightbox!

Having take thousands of photos for this site over the years against various very basic backdrops, usually with an angle poise lamp for lighting I finally bit the bullet recently and bought a mini lightbox (affiliate link) on eBay for just over a fiver - and frankly I'm already wondering why on earth I didn't do so ages ago!


It is roughly a 10" cube with one open side, with the lighting powered by a usb cable from my PC (which drives a line of LED's at the top of the box facing back into it). The one I got comes with a couple of backdrops (white and black - but it will be easy to make more), and folds away quickly for flat-pack storage.

If you want to have a look on your local eBay, this affiliate link will take you straight there (I get a teeny kickback from eBay if you buy one as well using this link).

Here's a load of (un-retouched) photos taken with my usual cheap camera, firstly of some of the Khurasanians I'll be taking to The ADLG Worlds this coming weekend, and then some of the Samurai who were in action at the BHGS Challenge a week or so ago so you can see how the pictures pan out.

Look! I built a Town!

Picking ridiculous projects and then almost finishing them is a classic wargamers curse, and the process of building a whole Malifaux faux-gothic-steampunk town almost from scratch instead of just coughing up for some pre-built buildings is a pretty good way of ticking that particular "curse" box, as I can now demonstrate with the following series of photos and construction hints and tips.

Some Saga Warbands - being sold off on eBay

I've recently listed 4 Saga Warbands on eBay - they are figures I was selling for a friend, so you probably won't recognise the figures from previous disastrous match reports!

The eBay listing included 2 Norman/Christian armies, one Viking-type Warband and an Arab Warband that can be most any of the Arab factions. As they have now departed my possession I thought it worth sharing the photos here.

All I have done is re-base them, and also photographed them with my new model-railway-inspired backdrop - which I think adds a surprising amount to the pictures.
