Hungarian Panzer IV

In our upcoming campaingn there is already one thing for sure: The axis has to cope with a lot of russian tanks, since most club members start their force with a tankovy battaillion. I will have a game this week against 11 KV1s. Therefore I urgently need heavy gun options. The Panzer IV for sure is one option against heavy soviet tanks. I decided not to fix the gun barrels to the turret permanently but to use rare earth magnets …

Outstanding Theoden (besides the strange balustrade): Massive Voodoo Author Der_Ben showed an really impressive Theoden. Remember that this model is true 28mm! Realistic futuristic weathering: A cool future vehicle designed by Antenociti, painted and weathered by dwartist. The 28mm vehicle looks really impressive. Weathering with pigments is not as easy as it seems to be, so look how the pro does it. Early war preview by Battlefront: The new Flames of war boxes really look excellent!

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 …

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 …
