This resin church made by Total Battle miniatures recently arrived in the mail. The level of detail is great on their pieces. The internal details are particularly impressive, and the internal walls and staircase are loose so that you can remove them during play to fit figures inside. As always, there is some cleaning upContinue reading “Resin church…”
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”
I have had these Warlord Games figures and the tank models (Sherman M4A3 resin and M4 plastic) stowed away in a drawer for some time. I finally got round to finishing them and I am really happy with them. I prefer Warlord’s older resin models to their plastics. People say the plastic sets have betterContinue reading “Sherman tanks and dismounted crew”
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”
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”
A couple of Marder III tank destroyers to be used in Chain of Command games. Both are Warlord games kits with heads from West Wind thrown in for variation.
The figures are Warlord Games metal crew for an 88 mm and the gun is made by 1st Corps.
These are Gorgon Studios French for the campaign in Norway in the spring of 1940.
These miniatures were some of the first ww2 figures I ever painted, only a few years ago. Most of them were made by Warlord Games, with a few being Gorgon Studios (with greatcoats and leather jackets). I have now managed to take some decent pictures of these figures and so I removed the old post.Continue reading “Early World War 2 British”
These are WW2 US infantry made by Perry Miniatures. Most of them are plastic figures from the box set, with a few metal figures added in for variation. The metal figures have no jackets on, they are wearing only their shirts. The plastic set is excellent and in itself contains miniatures to create a wholeContinue reading “Speed painting a US infantry platoon”
