1940 - Eric Knowles Style….Part 2
After the photographic onslaught that was the Germans it was only right that the next post should comprise the French. Again, no armour to speak of but it is an impressive collection all the same.
Colonial infantry support and artillery
More fortress types plus guns
Artillery and some unpainted support
Even more artillery!
The unpainted but not unorganised bits and bobs
Motorised infantry with some unpainted stuff
I must confess to being mystified as to why with the 1940 collection there does not appear to be any armour other than that of the Belgians (in the next post). Knowing Eric I can only assume that he had stockpiled the material for this and the box full has yet to be found or perhaps he collaborated with another gamer that had the requisite vehicles? I doubt if if we will ever know as Bill is quite certain that all the boxes I have are in fact all the boxes there are. Who knows?
There are some of Eric’s conversions in this collection - he would press gang vehicles from the most unlikely sources and ‘paint them into something suitable’ - and the two turreted fortress guns are of his own design.
As usual all this is up for disposal although currently under review by an interested party. Any enquiries about the French should be emailed to me - firstname.lastname@example.org
Next up will be the Belgians and some Dutch.
