Scenery Cianty has a nice post on model supplies for furniture, markets and inn signs in 28 mm. Tree Tutorial Frank Bauer did an excellent Tree tutorial in german.

Science Fiction terrain Rémi Bostal did post marveless pictures showing alien minatures in his scenery. Painting Knights Antipater continued with …

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 …

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 …

Chevalier de la terres Carriers and 6pdrs

For quite a while I am visiting Chevalier de la terres Blog, Crac de Chevaliers, on a regular basis. His clean and colourful painting style on 15mm Flames of war miniatures is really amazing. Currently he upped Pictures of his Carriers and 6pdrs. Again these are wonderful arranged, in a very smooth painting job, coming with excellent stowage and additional MGs. I really wonder how smooth the models are. Chevalier is more precise than the models are. I wonder how …

The event attracted Players from all over the country, gaming clubs from Hamburg, Hannover, Köln, Braunschweig, Ludwigshafen, Saarbrücken, Frankfurt and more.
