Cybermen save money by using the Park and Ride into Oxford

After seeing how much fun people were having at the last couple of posts, i couldn't resist drawing up one comment which made me laugh. Cybermen using the park and Ride to get into Oxford. Thanks Paul.

Don't worry this isn't part of the battle...although seven Cybermen did go missing for six hours during the main advance...

I got an e-mail today from Black Tree Designs, saying that some of my order has been sent out to me. Hopefully the rest won't be far behind , oh well I can always start painting them piece meal as they turn up.

Cybermen invade Oxfordshire

The year is 1944 and a large Cyberforce lands in a small village on the outskirts of Oxford. They appear to be searching for something, an artifact of immense power. Above, a Cyberleader scans the area for signs of the hidden energy source.

Cyber Invasion

The cat's out of the bag as far as my friend is concerned, so now I can let you know of my next project. Using COE WWII rules I intend to put on a Cyberman vs WWII Tommy game for his birthday. It should be fun and I have been busy painting a basing loads of Cybermen and extra Brits for the game. A few more PIAT teams wouldn't go a miss when facing these guys.

I have ordered the Cybermen from Black Tree Designs so I just hope they arrive in time and not next year. I had some WWII Americans turn up so late once, I forgot I had ordered them!

I have no idea how the game will turn out, will the Cybermens tough resistance to small arms fire win the day, or will it be the shear amount of firepower laid down by the Brits that swings the tide of battle?

The best thing about Cybermen is they are so quick to paint. Spray silver and wash with black...job done.

I have started to plan some alternative war games for this year. A game of Zombies would be great fun. Has anyone got any Zombie recommendations. I saw some plastic Zombie WWII Germans, but couldn't find the company that made them.

I started planning a friends Birthday present battle , featuring Zombies of a sort but with a twist. More on that later, however I have ordered them from Black Tree so I hope they arrive this year...
