Transylvanian Task Force

I am painting since more than two years on my transylvanian force for By Fire and Sword. In the meantime I have enough painted troops to play task force games. I had only two games until now, but these were really fun. As you already might have learned from me I have a faible for Hungarian topics and for forces, which went into really deep trouble, as did the forces of I. Rákóczi György.  I am really happy with my …

Das war der Holmgang 2016

Wenn Wraith ruft, folgen die SAGA-Spieler einmal mehr und sammeln sich zum Holmgang in Mutterstadt. Mit 16 Startern war das Feld in diesem Jahr aufgrund von diversen kurzfristigen Absagen zwar etwas kleiner, allerdings waren einige Neueinsteiger sowohl für SAGA als auch für Turniere am Start. Das freute mich sehr, zeigt es doch, dass neue Leute ins Hobby finden können. Besonderen Augenmerk legt Wraith auf die Szenarien, die auch in diesem Jahr individuell angepasst und ganz im SAGA Stil waren. Für …

With the publication of SAGA Crescent & Cross plans erose to beef up my Norman SAGA armie with some Crusader elements. First addition are the pilgrims. I have chosen to paint armed and umarmed pilgrims and some models from other blisters of the Perry Crusader range.

Bavarian MG 08

Boys, it has been a really long time since the last post. Actually has to do something with the little fact that 2 little girls are living with us now. My twin daughters are 10 months old and I am kind of busy since their birth. However here is a paintjob I did for the 100 year anniversary of the start of the Great War. We decided in our club to reactivate our trench gaming table and to learn how …
