The Roaring Northerners are Dave Stewart, John Hill and Iain Robertson; a loose affiliation of tabletop wargamers and figure painters who inhabit the frozen and somewhat soggy wastelands of west central Scotland. Shadowy and secretive, they stoically quest to reduce the scale of the lead mountain that threatens to engulf them all, and perhaps even find the time for the occasional game...

Contact...Wait Out.

Meanwhile, on the Central Front, the CVR(W) Fox from S&S Models is starting to come together nicely...

The stowage is a mixture of Elhiem and Kingfisher (ex-CMSC) items, which add a bit of interest and flavour to the model. Ordnarily, it should also be practically un-recognisable under layers of scrim, hessian and foliage; but since this is a gaming piece, I prefer that they should be instantly recognisable to both friend and foe as to what it is at a glance, so tend to hold back on the weathering and camouflage...



  1. To bloomin nice as always Iain I will have to sneak out that rogue Leopard to gobble it up lol. John.

  2. Yep, we've got to get a game or two using these models.

  3. Haha, cheers guys, just needs the base finished now. Hopefully when I'm off at the end of the month I can get stuck into the Russians and get enough together for another bash at a game, just not getting the chance just now!
