VBCW: Forces for BIG Chain of Command

Just as I was getting towards the end of my VBCW project a month or two ago, TFL published their (free) BIG Chain of Command supplement. A quick count up and I found rather to my surprise that I was actually within touching distance of having the figures I needed for it. A small order from Peter Pig and here we are so I thought I would show off the various platoon options that I have available. 

Whether I will actually do big CoC is not yet decided but it certainly gives me plenty of options to play with...

The buildings here are my latest acquisition. They were commissioned from HACME.  They are local buildings from my village and I am VERY pleased with them. They are still working on a church for me; I am looking forward to seeing that.

Anglican militia (at Flemdyke House)

BUF militia (at the Six Bells - why do the fascists get the beer?)

Irregular militia with an Anglican flavour (I might have some of the wrong big men!)

Irregular militia with an BUF flavour
(there is also an option for militia unconnected with either)

British regulars at the Old House (only half painted yet)

Here are the regular's missing mortar and ATR teams, a couple of  their leaders and a tripod MG support in the background. 

And finally, my vehicle collection: three trucks, 2 armoured cars (Lanchester & Rolls Royce) and a Vickers Mark VI tank, not forgetting the bicycles. There are also a couple more vehicles still on the painting table.

I also have a couple more, non-standard sections, but I'll keep those under wraps for now, (in some cases because they are unpainted).

All figures are by Peter Pig (15mm). Vehicles are PP, QRF or Zvezda.


  1. A really nice touch to have local buildings! And they look great.

  2. Thank you both. I am looking forward to having a chance to actually get a game in with the new buildings.

  3. We're thinking about having a few VBCW games, and Chain of Command is definitely the rules set we'd go for... Unfortunately there are no armylists or guidlines for the VBCW setting. Do you have any, or can you give me an idea where to start? Any help would be appreciated

    1. I would definitely recommend CoC for VBCW. I don't have any formal lists. However, I gave some suggestions in reply to a similar query recently on the TooFatLardies Yahoo group. Look for the thread- "Chain of Command - VBCW". Good luck.
