Airbrushing sprayed camoflage with paper masks

Usually I do not care about WIP posts. Personally I do not like WIPs when they show miniatures besides the painting technic is somewhat special. However I decided to show you my Toldis and Csabas before they are finished, because I managed to airbrush a quite good 3 color camoflage. Frank Bauer and Lemming told me in the german Sweetwater Forums when they saw my Famo trucks, that the scale of the airbrushed camo is not right. For sure I …

Hungarian Artillery

This platoon has seen a somewhat funny story: I painted it in order to support either my hungarian tank company or motorised infantry. For sure artillery is important and the german 10,5 cm guns can provide a means against russian tanks in artillery bomardments. To field a hungarian platoon means, that you have to buy two blister guns, a hungarian artillery crew blister and the towing vehicles as well. A lot of money if you consider to field alternatively mortars …

Hungarian T-38G tanks by Battlefront, painted by Tankred

Hungarian tank platoon (Harckocsizó platoon)

I managed to finish the core of my hungarian tank company. The core was not very hard in history. When the 1st armoured division fought at the river Don in 1942 their T-38G tanks were absolutely useless against most of the tanks the Sovjets threw at the hungarian controlled sector. The main gun was to weak to cope with T34 and for sure with KV1 tanks. The models are really tiny compared to other german Tanks, e.g. Panzer IV. However …

Italian Village, 15mm, Wargaming, Rusus Models, Table by Frank Bauer, Terrainmodels designed by Rusus and Tankred

Last Campaign Game with my Fallschirmjäger company

First of all I would like to mention the excellent gaming table and the great Game I had with Frank Bauer. He built a great italian Gaming Table using the Italian Village Rusus and me designed last year. The models are still available and the range will be expanded. I use these great pictures in order to illustrate the army I used for the last 3 years mainly when playing FoW. Yesterday I had the last game within our Club´s …

Barrows

For our yearly German Lord of the Rings gaming Event on the Kauzenburg I decided this year to show up with a scenario from the Fellowship Hobby book – Fog on the barrow heights. Having painted all miniatures of the beautiful barrow height box, I decided to paint a barrow, which I bought via EBOB´s webshop. The centerpiece, which was excellent designed should be accompanied by more barrows. I decided to build some by myself. The building was quite easy, …

Gépkocsisó Lövész Platoon

Currently everybody in my Gaming Club, the Spieltrieb Frankfurt is preparing for our upcoming Ostfront campaign. I am painting an Hungarian Force. As with my other two armies, British 8th army and Fallschirmjäger, I am painting both a tank and an infantry company. I started with an motorised infantry platoon as this is the support choice for a hungarian tank force and infantry is with me at almost every game I play. The hungarians in FoW have the excellent special …

Sommerwind 2010

For the first time I visited at the end of may my first Flames of War event in Germany. The community of www.flamesofwar.de met somewhere in the countryside in the middle of nowhere near Fulda. The event was planned and perfectly executed by Hotwing, an well nown player living near Hamburg. The event attracted Players from all over the country, gaming clubs from Hamburg, Hannover, Köln, Braunschweig, Ludwigshafen, Saarbrücken, Frankfurt and more. The 30 participants played two campaigns, one Mid …

Rohan outriders for War of the Ring

I never mentioned the war (of the Ring) on unfinished armies, although I am a passionate fan of LotR. Currently I am revisiting Rohan and Isengard. In 2003 I started with both armies and built up an 500 Points LotR Skirmish army. Rohan got in the game weaker and weaker and I was not able to play them well, although a polish Rohan army did win the Grand Tournament in Nottingham 2009. However I wasn´t that successful with rohan. However …

Switching to WordPress

For years I tried to blog with the Content Management System I used for the other hobby pages, Typo3. I now decided to give up, since wordpress is simply the better choice although it is not the best software ever written. However I will use the very simple tool to get connected to other wargamers, letting you know what I read in the webs and show you what I am painting, gaming and building. I hope to convince some of …

Commenting on Stu´s Portees

Way back to 2005 Stu, a wargamer in New Zealand, started to paint his Portees. During that time is was painting a Commonwealth Flames of War force, too and I visited his great page on a regular basis. I really like Stu´s stuff and his opinion on our hobby. However a reason for me writing this comment on this blog is the fact, that I switched Unfinished armies to WordPress in order to communicate better with other hobby guys. Therefore …
