Finished this Panzer IV ausführung H with zimmerit coating (a model typical of the year 1944), to remove at least one item from my queue of basecoated tanks. This one is an old Warlord Games resin kit. It is a nice kit, but the pieces connecting the side skirts to the hull did not fitContinue reading “Pz 4 ausf H”

WG resin Shermans – a challenging build
After my recent post on resin vehicles I lauded Warlord Games in particular for their excellent (but now reduced) range of WW2 resin models. As I really like the models, I have been searching the web for OOP sets. They seem to be going fast: many models that are just 5-10 years old have alreadyContinue reading “WG resin Shermans – a challenging build”
German tank commanders
These are two tank crew figures from Empress miniatures. Very nice figures, now all I have to do are the tanks!
As I had quite a few of my WW2 German figures out and gathered in one place, I thought I might as well take a few pictures. I have a large number of early war Germans (appropriate for 1939–1941) that are not included here. As you can see there are some Germans in greatcoats, someContinue reading “Germans”
German half-tracks and passengers
I hastily painted my last two SPW armored half-tracks and also painted a few seated grenadiers for them. I have a few more of these passenger figures which I guess may work for marking when the squad is still inside the SPW. Figures are by Warlord Games, vehicles are by Canadian maker die Waffenkammer.
Hälsinge regt. WIP
I have been working on these off and on for the past year. These are not the most demanding figures, but they take a bit more time than the Finnish (all grey) regiments. Will be doing 2×24 of these. Not decided whether to do two flags per unit or not. If I paint the figuresContinue reading “Hälsinge regt. WIP”
Copper wire entanglements…
For my 1808 Russian forces, I need a couple of Grodno hussar squadrons. Unfortunately, there are no models with the correct uniforms available, at least none that match my other figures. So I have decided to convert Perry hussars to look like they have the older uniform. The big difference is the shako. Hussars hadContinue reading “Copper wire entanglements…”
Many reading this will already have seen these elsewhere, but I might as well post these pictures here as well. These are the figures I have painted and based so far on both sides (Russian and Swedish). It should be around 350 figures and counting. I dont know how realistic it is, but if IContinue reading “1808 projects…”
Russian colonel, 1808
I just finished a colonel or similar officer for my 1808 Russians. A nice figure, not too difficult to paint. Figure by Brigade Games, sculpted by Paul Hicks. These figures are very nice, and this one has a particularly tough looking face.
Empress miniatures late war British
I had a slight mishap when doing the shading wash on these. The wash caused an unusual number of cracks, maybe I was careless when applying it. I was a bit disheartened by this and just let them gather dust, half-finished, for a few months. But finally this week I finished the first squad. TheContinue reading “Empress miniatures late war British”
