Germans

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?”

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”

Church

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”

A game of Chain of Command

We played scenario 4 (if I remember correctly) of the 29 let’s go campaign this evening. I played the German side. I used a motley selection of figures that I felt fit the Normandy setting relatively well. The game opened with me deploying a section in one of the central buildings. At first I thoughtContinue reading “A game of Chain of Command”

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”

Late war Brits

Just started some late war British infantry, made by Empress miniatures. Very nicely detailed figures. The camo pattern on the jackets is supposed to be quite toned down, but I think I managed to paint it distinctivley enough for it to be visible. If you look closely…
