More German armor

I finished a Panzer III AusfĆ¼hrung M and a sdkfz 222 leichter PanzerspĆ„hwagen to add to my German armored collection. Pictures are not that great as I didnt have my usual camera to hand. The tank is a resin kit by die Waffenkammer and the armored car is a Warlord Games kit, also resin, butContinue reading “More German armor”

How did this even happen?

Going through my boxes of figures I realized something. While I may have a difficult time finishing projects, there is one project that I actually have finished – my ww2 Soviets. In fact, I have done many more figures than I ever planned. I counted them and apparently somewhere along the way I have managedContinue reading “How did this even happen?”

German LMG teams

I finished a couple of German LMG teams (in ca 1943-44 style) during an otherwise slow hobby period. They are Warlord Games plastics with parts from several of their different kits, including some metal heads. With camo covers on the helmets and other bits they are a bit more varied and more interesting to paintContinue reading “German LMG teams”

Sdkfz 251/10

Another addition to my ww2 Germans. This model is by Blitzkrieg miniatures. I now have one 251/1 and one 251/10 painted up, and I also have one 251/1 unassembled in a box. The ultimate goal would be to have a full platoon’s worth, i e three 251/1s and one 251/10. Time will tell if thatContinue reading “Sdkfz 251/10”

Sdkfz 251/1

Just finished a Hanomag sdkfz 251/1 half-track, another of a pile of ww2 vehicles I have assembled and primed. This one is by Blitzkrieg miniatures. Its a resin kit, which needed very little assembly, but it did need some cleaning. I will try to work my way through the rest of the pile over theContinue reading “Sdkfz 251/1”

WW2 Germans again

My main focus right now is napoleonics. But I also have piles of WW2 stuff, a lot of it half-finished or at least assembled and primed. So now and then I take out some of those figures and paint a few here and there. WW2 games in this scale have the advantage of using aContinue reading “WW2 Germans again”

Some more Germans

These are a few more additions to my slowly growing Kursk project. The figures are slightly modified Warlord and Perry miniatures. The Perry figures are from the Afrika Korps range, but I replaced the heads and boots with Warlord pieces. One nice detail on the Afrika Korps minis is that the MGs have the roundContinue reading “Some more Germans”

Germans for the battle of Kursk 1943

This is a first attempt at German panzergrenadiers as they would have appeared at the battle of Kursk in 1943. There are no miniatures available that are perfectly suitable for this period. Most are designed for “late war”, that is 1944-45. Those figures most often have the low boots with gaiters, they have mp44s, panzerfaustsContinue reading “Germans for the battle of Kursk 1943”
