Battlestar Galactica – The Civilian Fleet Part 1

When I first saw the television show “Battlestar Galactica” I was a little child. I loved the episodes and dreamed about reenacting the adventures of Apollo and Starbuck with miniatures. A few years ago I saw the re-imagined show and was really impressed that the series got even better than its parent. It is now my favorite television show an last year I started searching for tabletop miniatures of Battlestar Galactica. A few month ago I found the miniatures from …

Nimrod anti air tank

When collecting a force I especially like the models which are very typical and special for the force I paint. The hungarian army fielded some very individual models, one of them is the Nimrod, although it is an original swedish design built in licence in Hungary. However there the unique hungarian mixture is very interesting, therefore I startet with the Flak tank. Having airbrushed the hungarian Stukas gave me the skills to airbrush these tiny tank models. They came out …

Images from Military Museum in Budapest

I would like to share some pictures I made in the Hungarian National Military Museum (Hadtörténeti Múzeum) in Budapest. I visit the museum on a regular basis since my wife is from Budapest and we visit this beautiful town often. The museum is one of my favourite places there. The presentation is a little bit old fashioned, but you get quite a lot of information about all epoches of hungarian warfare. The second world war is looked at in four …

Fallschirmjäger Pionier Zug

Now I am very close to have a finished army, although this blog has a different name. The Fallschirmjägerpioniere will only be followed by one complete platoon and maybe another 6 flamethrower teams. For sure there is one single option more which could be added after I model a light mortar team which is the mountain gun platoon. The values were changed in North Africa so the Fallschirmjäger artillery is now an option worth painting. However I am very pleased …
