  1. I have been working on these off and on since December. I just don't have enough time to paint anymore and a couple of other projects ended up taking priority. The two half tracked vehicles are the Pak 40 Auf S307(f) and the fully tracked vehicle with the big gun is a Geschutzwagen 39H(f). These vehicles are from the 21st Panzer Division during the Normandy invasion. At the time the 21st was critically short of armored vehicles so Alfred Becker setup a workshop and lead the team that converted the captured French armor. On the halftrack vehicles the designation indicates that it is equipped with the German 75mm anti-tank gun mounted on an S307 halftrack with the "(f)" indicating that it is French based. The same applies to the 39H(f), a vehicle based on the hull of a French 39H tank. If you are interested in the process here are links back to my blog that follow the whole project from start to finish. http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2016/12/assembling-wwii-german-armor-from.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2017/01/assembling-wwii-german-armor-from.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2017/01/madbobs-miniatures-prepping-time-with.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2017/01/madbobs-miniatures-evening-of-priming.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2017/01/madbobs-miniatures-evening-of-yellow.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2017/01/madbobs-miniatures-getting-on-with-camo.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2017/02/madbobs-miniatures-filters-washes-and.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2017/02/madbobs-miniatures-some-paint-and-decals.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2017/04/world-war-ii-project-return-to-mad-bobs.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2017/05/world-war-ii-project-german-armor-mad.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2017/05/world-war-ii-project-german-armor-mad_11.html
  2. Who? You've probably seen her.
  3. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/elie-wiesel-nobel-laureate-holocaust-survivor-night-author-dies-87-n603006 Elie Wiesel, author, Holocaust survivor, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, has died, aged 87. His memoir, "La Nuit" ("Night" in English), which tells of his experiences as a teenager in the Auschwitz death camp, is extraordinarily harrowing and powerful. Wiesel devoted his life to peace and tolerance.
  4. WWII was a major conflict and as such there are many model kits and miniatures out there. However it has always struck me as odd that there are so few Japanese forces made. Sure, there are some airplane kits, and some Chi-Ha tanks and a few infantry kits. But is like they were a minor force if we compare it to the abundance of German, Russian and Allied troops. I mean you can buy models from a lot of regular trucks, half tracks and such, but the Japanese only get a Tank or two? Maybe I've been looking at the wrong places. And I must admit I haven't been following new releases for WWII kits. But lately I got a little interest again. So I'm curious, I prefer 28mm metal miniatures for this, what is out there depicting Japanese WWII forces? Preferably vehicles. Anyone know of a few nice metal kits?
  5. I'm getting back into WWII skirmish gaming so that, of course, meant that I needed a new "army". I opted for a more elite force this time and started off with British Airborne troops nicknamed the Red Devils for the maroon beret that they wore. These particular minis are from Warlord Games for their Bolt Action WWII rules. I'll be using Chain of Command from Too Fat Lardies instead. I like the "feel" of Chain of Command better and it has some interesting game mechanics. The British Airborne camouflage jacket is known as the Denison smock and consisted of a slightly greenish yellow base colored cloth painted using large brushes with green and brown swatches. This meant that literally every smock was different. The first section of troops along with a supporting machine gun are done, although they still need to be based. I ended up having to order bases which might arrive this week, I received a notice that they were shipped today. From start to finish: And the WIP progress on my blog for those that are interested: http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2015/09/warlord-games-red-devils-session-1.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2015/09/warlord-games-red-devils-session-2.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2015/10/warlord-games-red-devils.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2015/10/the-denison-smock-wg-red-devils-session.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2015/10/warlord-games-red-devils-session-5.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2015/10/warlord-games-red-devils-session-6.html http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2015/10/warlord-games-red-devils-session-7.html
  6. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt addresses Congress, 8th December 1941
  7. After painting my Cave Woman and the Giant Spider, I felt like doing something stripped down and minimal. Also I wanted to explore the use of negative space to create a mood or to evoke a feeling. I chose to work with Rose, a small 20mm figure from the Hasslefree Juvenile range. I carved the brick she is standing on from Super Sculpey. The brick she is standing on is a bombed out street. The flower in the foreground is meant to represent the Poppy used to commemorate Remembrance Day. Thank you for looking.
