With no looming GM deadline until July, I decided to work on whatever struck my fancy this month. Here’s my scatterbrained results.
A Warlord Panhard 178 to replace my existing one from Army Group North. The AGN one has an integrated base that I was never quite pleased with.
A Jump Off Point, Force Morale Trackers and Patrol Markers for my Early War French.
Some plastic canoes from a child’s play set for my FIW Sharp Practice games at Historicon.
An Abomination from the old Carnevale line.
A scratch-built Woodland Indian smoking rack, again for my Historicon games.
Generic hedge gate from Warbases.
I think the small dinosaur is either from Iron Wind or Reaper and the Owlbear is from Otherworld.
Late war German Panzerschreck team from Warlord.
Some late war German NCOs from Victory Force and Warlord.
An early war MG34 team from Warlord.
Medusa from Otherworld, a Celtic Druid from Gorgon Studios and a zombie-thingy from maybe Reaper(?).
Artizan pulp Russians.
A murder of crows from Reaper – my first piece for Legends of the High Seas.
In preparing for my Sharp Practice games I’ll be running at Historicon, I finished off some animals that I had stashed. Being a sucker for adding small details to my gaming boards, many of these will fit the bill. There’s a hodgepodge of manufacturers here: Reaper, Warbases, Iron Wind Metals, Pulp Figures and the highly recommended farm animal set from Pegasus.
Now that my Cold Wars tasks have been completed for a few weeks, I’ve been leisurely finishing up some unfinished in progress things that have been laying around.
The T-Rex is from Jeff Valent Studios, which I believe is now defunct. I think I bought this at Fall In! in Gettysburg, if that gives you any idea of how long I’ve been carting it around.
These 18th century civilians are from Foundry. I plan on using these for Sharp Practice and Legends of the High Seas.
This group is from Conquest Miniatures and includes a Jesuit Priest, a French de la Marine officer and the Last of the Mohicans set. I did a poor job with Alice – I seem to have captured her likeness “post waterfall”.
West Wind makes this Kubelwagen, but I’m not sure where the driver came from. The SS are mostly Warlord plastics with a metal figure from…Battle Honors maybe…
Total impulse buy at Historicon, but when I saw this thing from Pulp Figures I “had” to have it. It’s already been put to use as a moveable deployment point in Sharp Practice. It’s a great sculpt. Everyone should have one, even if you don’t have a use for it.
This weekend I attened Historicon, one of the annual east coast miniature wargaming conventions. I was able to play and observe a few games, catch up with friends that I haven’t seen in a while and, of course, shop. Here’s the bounty I came away with this year.
Some HorrorClix figures and Warlord’s Panzer IV, Puma and Humber Scout Car that I scored in the flea market.
Omni-Ruler sections from CorSec Engineering, sold by Dave’s Baggage Train.
A bag of assorted creatures from Iron Wind Metals.
An observation bunker and large supply dump/objective from Novus Designs, sold by Battlefield Terrain Concepts.
A Renault FT with extra turrets and some free coasters from Trenchworx.
Pulp German Stormtroopers and Chain of Command Markers from Eureka.
Pulp Figures’ Arresting Gestapo Troopers, Scouring Gestapo Guards, Arrogant Gestapo Officers and Stahl-Masks Doom Squad sold by the Hobby Bunker.
Artizan Designs’ SAS (Europe), Cadds Commandos II, Koschei’s Cossacks and Nacht Jager sold by Brigade Games.
