Another day, another update...

All is coming along just nicely for the big Convention in june. Finishing a Panzer IV and some more terrain. Drilled some 50mm bases for my trees (glued some washers on for added weight and filled the center hole and sides with some cheap Poly-Filla.

The Panzer IV needs his Shurzen, his Commander and some weathering. It represents a vehicle from the 5.Kompanie, 3rd Zug fielded by the Panzer Lehr in Normandy. You can say what you want from the Lehr but they looked bad-ass in those Assault tunics.

Ordered some half-tracks; 2x 251/1 and 1 SdKfz 251/10 and a stummel. I like mounted infantry :p

Some pics below, enjoy...

Some more updates

Scored some nice Solido 1/50 vehicles. A Dodge WC54 Ambulance, a DUKW & some GMC trucks. Some look small but the scale is almost spot on. The figs look too big but it's just due to the bases.

Most of these will be used for the Battle of the Bulge project. The DUKW was just too cool to not buy ;-)




Another small teaser for the upcoming Normandy tably. Should be finished in july for our Wargaming Conference MonkeyCon.

Band of Brothers, Part 3

Dear All,

I failed painting the eyes on the models below. One looks like a retard and the other one has no eyes...

I tried and i kept trying until i was satisfied, satisfied in the sense that nobody is perfect. Except for Scarlett Johansson.

Band of Brothers, Part 2

Rainy day outside so no good working in the garden.

I painted the Platoon Sergeant and the bazooka-guy. Waiting for my order from Northstar to complete the HQ. Currently working on a .30 gunner and ammo-carrier.

Enjoy!

Band of Brothers

I painted a small test-figure for my WW2 US Paratroopers. It's based on the M1942 uniform during the time of the Normandy landings. Chain of Command will be the rules to play and all figures will be from Artizan Designs.

Although they didn't fight the Panzer Lehr, they are waiting in my cabinet to have a go at them :)

Hope you like them!
