Workbench update!

Well it's been a bit since I have updated everyone here on what I have going on with Bongolesia on my workbench. To be honest, most of the stuff was put on the back burner while I took a break from 15's and did some 28mm Pulp figs. Now that I have them out of the way thought, I thought I would go ahead and get back into finishing up some of my 15mm stuff...

The workbench/table is kind of full right now...

I am happy to report that I have completed 13 more stands of NDF troops, which equals out to approx 37 figs. This will be the last of the NDF "Boys in Green".

I've also essentially finished the coastal patrol boat, "Moesha".

Both of these are waiting for warmer weather to be sealed and they are done.

The BNINF (Bongolesian Naval Infantry), is 3/4 of the way done. This will be about a dozen stands of Naval Troops used for coastal security operations.
I should have them done within the next week or so.

On top of that, I've started working on a new problem for Bongolesia.......

 (Arms and Equipment of "The Neighbor to the South; The Fandango Republic"
An AH1 for Air Support, Some M41's for Medium Armor, and an M42 Duster for AA protection)

Battlefront had a sale for the month of March you see....
They had 40% off on their Vietnam War stuff, so I made an order. I still have some M113's, some M48's, an M577, and a Recoilless Rifle Team on their way. Soon B'wonah is gonna have to get serious about his Southern Neighbor.

But we can't let Fandango have ALL the fun now can we?

(Better armed and armored than the standard troops trucks and just as noisy too!)

This will probably be the last of the regular equipment purchases for the NDF/Presidential Guard. After that I think I have all for the governmental forces.


My game plan is to get this stuff done quickly, and finish up The Presidential Palace once and for all. I swear it's becoming my albatross.

Then I need to get back to work on my MEU.....I'm still looking for 1/100th scale CH47's (at a decent price), and V22 Ospreys, and I will be making some quick and dirty mockups of LCAC's since the DRAGON model is almost 50 bucks per kit...no thank you....

More to come...hopefully...

I haven't bought from them yet, but plan to when it comes time for my Vietnam troops to get some heavy lift capability other than Skycranes. The direct link to the company is below:
