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”
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”
More German armor
I finished a Panzer III Ausführung M and a sdkfz 222 leichter Panzerspåhwagen to add to my German armored collection. Pictures are not that great as I didnt have my usual camera to hand [I have replaced them with better pictures since I wrote this!]. The tank is a resin kit by die Waffenkammer andContinue 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?”
A couple of Germans with bundled charges for tank-hunting. Figures are by Crusader, but with added weapons from Warlord. The figure on the right also has a head from Warlord.
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”
I painted up the church from Total Battle Miniatures. As you can see, there are still some areas that need touching-up, such as the underside of the roof where there is some naked resin showing through! I also havent painted the interior, although I dont know if I will ever feel that that is necessary.Continue reading “Church”
