Well I hope we will continue. I've got another 40 guys on the table ^^

 

I've got a whole platoon in a box still to go.  And if Frontline Games brings Bolt Action product to Reapercon again, I might come home with enough germans to last me for years.  :lol:

I made a comment in that regard in the first post.

 

I'll see you next time at the hangout.

Beautiful job, both of you. Have you read Martin Caidin's book "The Tigers are Burning"? about the battle of Kursk.

Great work both of you!

Sister's group looks more finished due to the bases, but I like both.

 

Are you guys going to do some vehicles as well?

No I haven't.  Is it good?

Yes I will, but not as part of this thread. I will combine that with a little tutorial on how to do weathering on a vehicle.

 

At least if that's wanted.

I'm always interested.

Weathering can also be used for scifi/ fantasy vehicles so I think it would be useful to many people here.

I know we had a Stug III and a Panther in common, but I only have the Panther unfinished and I'm not sure if Sistermary's Panther is already done.

 

For separate, individual projects, I have a Sherman V, a Cromwell, a Chi-Ha, a Ho-Ro, an M8 Greyhound, and an sdkfz234/2 Puma left to do.

Just curious. Do you have a reference for using that camo pattern on pants? I have never seen that one used on pants before.

Yes. I had a look on the internet and found that illustrations of troops using winter camo also involve those trousers.

Then I found this photograph:

So I said: seems legit. And I did it. Breaks up the scheme of white and grey trousers a bit.

      Alternate rules for the Warlord system

      Yes! We can do it again! Let's make a tank! Let's make a beautiful tank!
       
      Once again, it's a diorama project based on a game scene, once again, it's Combat Mission.
       
      In this particular diorama, the commander of a Panzer III M is a reallylucky  person. In a shootout during the Let's Play of German wargaming channel "TaktikfuchsTV", his Panzer III got hit around 20-25 times, prompting everyone to believe that this particular tank was dead. And I mean ... DEAD!
       
      But to everyone's surprise, the crew reentered the vehicle and drove away - going like:
       

       
       
      Here's the scene:
       
      Kauder reenters his tank (In German)
       
      So I got me a commanders figure and a tank ...
       
      First off, some pictures to see what this project will look like:
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      So I got me a Panzer III from Tamiya and started to do some minor conversions ... and over the course of one afternoon, this vehicle was finished.
       

       

       
      I am really proud of those selfmade smoke launchers.
       

       

       
      The vehicle will be displayed with open hatches. That's a challenge due to the really lame interior, but that's not a problem. I'll use colors to make the less detailed parts dark and the detailed parts white - I hope that will work!
       
      Tomorrow I'll go over the armor and do the shell damages. The only thing I am not certain about is the frontal armor provided by the spare tracks.
      I don't know how those look when they are hit. They are pretty massive and I simply cannot imagine them looking the same way as a normal armor plate when hit.
       
      I've got to dig deeper into it.

      Another mini which has been done for a while: a raptor.  This was meant for a module that uses a raptor hatchling as an animal companion for a kobold Ranger.
       



       
      Here is a link to the WIP.

      C&C welcome.

      So, after quite some time, it's time to present some minis again. This time it's a group of Forge Worlds Death Korps of Krieg soldiers.
       
      Those are a few prototype miniatures for a friends Imperial Guard army. If he likes the paintjob, we'll do them all in this pattern.
       

       

       

       

       
      Oh, yeah - and just in case anyone goes "nice" or "awesome" or "excellent" again - HE'S WATCHING YOU.
       

       
      If you really don't have got anything else to say, leave me a "like" instead. I take a "like" as a nod to my participation in this forum. A "nice" is getting me nowhere.
       
      So long.

      And here we go again. I never get tired trying out new stuff and doing multiple projects at the same time.
       
      The idea for this one approached me when I watched a Let's Play series by German Let's Player "DerHobbygeneral", who playes complex strategy games on PC.
       
      That certain series was a mission in the strategy game "Combat Mission: Red Thunder", a game set on the Eastern Front of WWII. The mission is the recreation of the tank battle between German and Russian forces in the opening hours of Operation Bagration, the Soviet 1944 summer offensive that managed to crush the German Central Army and push the Germans back to the borders of East Prussia.
       
      Combat Mission itself is a really complex game, simulating not only realistic projectile trajectories, armor and penetration calculation, but also randomly generating names for unit leaders and therefore emotionally connecting the player to his - or her - units.
       
      One of these commanders was Unterfeldwebel Austermann, commandeering a Kpfw V Panther A, and throughout the game one of the main factors in stopping the Soviet tank assault at Studienka. The player and all commentators remarked on his excellent performance in the game and he became something like a meme. There were even suggestions of making a compilation of his best actions as some kind of memorial service in case he bit the dust.
       
      And actually, a few episodes later, the Panther got hit a couple of times and was rendered inoperable. A shell even penetrated the front armor. While the battle for Studienka was raging, everyone focused on the question if Austermann and his crew would survive. And they did! What a remarkable turn in events! But I felt bad for the Panther, which was left behind.
       
      Here's the scene - it's in German, unfortunately.
       
      https://youtu.be/EJfQAVfhEoc?list=PLa3dxHLq2CvZBNhkqqaTX7jvSe7iOUjTj&t=752
       
      Then it struck me that maybe Austerman felt bad, too, and when I saw a certain figure on a miniature shop website, I KNEW I was going to make a diorama about it. So I bought a couple of figures and a cheap old Panther A kit and ... now I am on a new project again - YAY!
       

       
      I haven't decided which crew I take. I like both sets, but I guess I will go with the Dragon set. The other set can be used for a different project. But I guess, I will see once the overall layout is set.
       
      Let's go!
