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 …

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 …

Dagorlad´s new gaming board “Jurassic Reich” is finished

Dagorlad, the man behind One Ring, is working for quite a while on a really outstanding gaming table: Jurassic Reich. I followed his efforts for quite a while and now he has finished the gaming table. What I really love about the table is that Dagorlad really managed to understand german medival architecture and bring this to live in his model. The castle, or german Burg, is beautiful and moreover looks exacly like in all those war movies with castles …

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 …

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 …
