Miniatures: Chieftain & Challenger

Mark on his excellent Winter of '79 blog found some useful 1/72 pre-painted models at very reasonable prices. The Altaya range includes two obviously useful models in the form of a Challenger I in the green/black camo pattern (perfect for home service) and a Chieftain V in the Berlin urban camo. Mark points out that it isn't 100% accurate for Berlin, but is more than acceptable for Basingstoke or Bedford...

He picked his Chieftain's up from Model Hobbies of Stoke-on-Trent for a very reasonable £7.19 (given it's ready for gaming) and I may pick up a couple to use with the old 20mm's I have stored away that were the main reason for starting this project!
