Guest Gallery - Dave Hall

Some photos I was kindly sent for the blog by Dave Hall from the States.


Hi John

Here a few pictures from my game back in October at the Rio Grande Wars convention in the American Southwest. I play tested a simple scenario for my new rules which are set to come out in the Spring. The figures are plastic, mostly ESCI, Italeri and Orion. Please ignore the Panzerfausts. Those units were used as light machine gun teams.

Thanks

Here are a few recognizable Hasegawa trucks, a Starter Toyota GB and a Fuel Isuzu TX-40.


There were pretty simple conversions.  I used Evergreen Scale Models, Sheet Styrene with 2.0mm spacing V-Groove for the truck beds.


The Toyota is the smaller of the two vehicles.  Each could be said to hold a squad of infantry.  The Isuzu's canvas cover is a modified one from a Pegasus American 6 Ton.  I just cut the back end off to fit the length of the bed.  Both are pretty easy kits, but I would probably stick with the Isuzu as a primary truck transport.


For any experts on Japanese trucks, the beds are a little rudimentary in design but there are few pictures out on the internet to work off of and I opted for the wargamer's choice!

Keeping it simple



Cheers!
