The Romanians and the Battle for the Crimea

Enhancing Pre-Painted Terrain
The good thing about pre-painted terrain pieces is that they can be used straight from the box – that is probably the main reason you bought them. They are, however, a little bare and lacking in individuality. The sets aren’t truly complete until they have been tailored to match your current scenery collection through the addition of flock or other scenic material.

Spotlights
Parachute Company (BBX16)
The tough-as-nails paratroopers of the British Airborne, the legendary Red Devils, strike boldly into the midst of the enemy by parachute and glider. Their mission is to “Hold until relieved.”

Field Artillery Battery (UBX07)
The M2A1 105mm Howitzer is the mainstay of the US artillery. With their specialist artillery missions and the excellent communications they are always on call to support the US Army’s operations.

Staghound, with AA Turret option (BR350)
In July 1941 it had become apparent to the British Ordnance Committee, from its experience in North Africa, that there was a need for medium and heavy armoured cars.

AEC Mk III (BR342)
Associated Engineering Company (AEC) was a manufacturer of heavy vehicle chassis based in England and first saw success with the Matador Tractor, used to tow artillery pieces and anti-aircraft guns in the field during World War Two. The successes of the Matador chassis lead to the development of an armoured car to try and match firepower and protection of the tanks currently in service at the time.
