My name is Ken, I am a Gamer, it's been 4 days since I last bought any figures.
Troops on Parade is an excuse for me to get one of the collections at Yarkshire Gamer on the table, these have been the feature army on TOP before but I finished off the painting on all the remaining vehicles in the to do pile so this is it..... Although I could have a Dorchester ACV 🤔
Below is a video of the Army, in which I ramble on about various things whilst looking at the figures and models.
If you can't be bothered with the Video here's some photos
An over view of the entire army, 50 Tanks, 9 Armoured Cars, 18 Transports and 180 figures.
The 6 Mk VI Light Tanks, 3 from Blitzkrieg Miniatures and sporting original colour Caunter, 3 more from Warlord sporting later "faded" Caunter.
The early tanks, 4 x A9 Cruiser Tanks and 5 A10 Cruiser Tanks, one a CS version, all vehicles Warlord sadly no sand skirts, the Warlord models don't have them.
Seven A13 tanks, these are from Blitzkrieg, 2 different turret versions.
6 Matildas, all Warlord Games models, the names have a Wind in Willows theme.
9 Crusader Tanks, 6 from Blitzkrieg in plain colour nearest the camera, 3 in Caunter FRO M Warlord at the end. Although I believe the first batch of Crusaders that arrived in the Desert had Caunter applied I have never found a picture of one.
12 Stuart / Honey Tanks, all Blitzkrieg.
A couple of Perrys wonderful 2pdr Portee models and 3 Marmon Herrington Armoured Cars from Company B.

And finally a couple of lovely Rolls Royce Armoured Cars.
