    I’ve been working on some ground targets for my Wings at War meets the Football War project in 1/600th scale.

    Here’s the progress today: http://jimswargamesworkbench.blogspot.com/2018/10/wings-at-war-ground-targets-wip.html

    I’m hoping to get them finished tomorrow before moving on to some ‘strategic’ targets including a bridge, an oil plant and a ‘proper’ airport.

    :O)

    I’m liking the colors you used. I like the round one best, looks like they can be string together for bigger targets.

    You sprayed the clumps with the base?

    That’s right. I textured the bases with acrylic paste then sprayed them then glued on the foliage then resprayed then painted them.

    Looking good!  I really like the WaW series, especially Thud Ridge.  Looking forwards to some AARs!

    These may well be re-deployed to Vietnam at some point in the future

    And I just ordered some buildings from Brigade Models to add to the ground targets

    Awesome! The Football War is fascinating. It’s bonkers to think they fought an air war with piston engine fighters as late as 1969. Years ago I made a multiplayer map for it for the IL-2 flight sim. I trust you’re going to include at least one DC-3 rolling bombs out of the side door… 

    Did you order the Brigade Models’ bridges? I have a set but haven’t got round to making them up yet.

    Oh yes, there will be C-47’s with cargo doors removed for bombs to be rolled out and Cessna’s with the pilot actually sitting on the bomb.

    Here’s the next DIY terrain scratch builds, ready for the ‘strategic’ bombing to kick off, with one big target for each side to probably miss completely:

    The bridges are in the post!

    These bigger ones looks good, can you do a size comparison with some aircraft or the round base? Liking the populated round base a lot, they could probably be used in 3mm games.

     

    Where did you get the grey oil tanks?

    Here you go.

    The airfield and oil plant are at a smaller scale (1/1200?) than the tactical targets (1/600th)

    The big oil storage tanks are toothpaste tube lids and the small ones are from a 1/72nd scale Russian tank model kit.

    Thanks, these are looking great. I’m looking forward to a battle report.
