Well, as we all know Death, he will return to fulfill his duty. Anything else would be wrong in his opinion. But ... the question is: WHEN will he return?

 

Yeah. My Trip is already off to a good start, so I am looking forward to having a wonderful time.

LOVE Discworld, both the books & the minis. You did a FANTASTIC job on Death & Susan. VERY WELL DONE!

 

Yes, I also love them. And that was the reason I had this idea in my mind. Let's hope the guys at the competition think the same.

Kidby and Pratchett would be pleased! Great work.

 

As long as Death and Susan are pleased, I am happy with everything. :lol:

Neat vignette!

 

Thank you. I was surprised the ground turned out the way it did. Looks almost a bit like marble.

      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.

      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!

      This thread is something ... different from other works I have been done.
       
      I guess it's not entirely in accordance to the board rules, so you may forgive me and accept my humble bundle of roses, choclate and other stuff that will easy your severely upset minds.
       
      When I am in the mood, I am doing so many speed builds up to the point of painting (means assembly, basing and priming), that making them all into different threads I would flood the forum with an unnecessary number of threads.
       
      So I will keep this limited to the building process of my different tabletop figures, armies and stuff and transfer the finished figures to their respective painting threads.

      And now for something completely different. Normally, I post figures (or I rather try to post some figures), but this time, it's a bit bigger.
       
      My "longtime" WIP is done (you can find her in my "Speed-build"-Thread. Check out ->here<-)
       
      This project started as a commission. A colleague of mine was in the navy back in the days, and she was on board of the Karlsruhe when the vessel still was in service.
      When she left the ship, her comrades gifted her a model - but, as she is no model builder, the box was laying beneath some shelves never to be assembled - that is, until my colleague found out I had done model kit assembly for like 20 years or so.
       
      So she gave her precious kit to me - and I foolishly took it, believing the vessel and I could make love, not war. The kit intended otherwise though  and that made my journey a rough voyage.
       
      When I started in February 2018, I didn't believe it would be a ride like this. I fought my way through glue, colors, sweat, tears and blood (literally).
      I think up to this date, this was THE most difficult kit I ever had to make. This old lady by far resisted every building step I made - and even after finishing her I had so many problems holding her together that I am glad I am done now.
       
      Anyways - it was a great experience and I learned a lot of things - especially regarding weathering and diorama building and I value what I learned.
       
      Thanks to everyone who followed my building progress and commented. I guess I wouldn't have finished her otherwise.
       
      Enjoy the pictures:
