Beutepanzers

This month my FLGS is starting an Eastern Front campaign for Bolt Action. I decided to loosely base my force on the 7th SS Volunteer Mountain Division Prinz Eugen. Most of the vehicles in their OOB were repurposed captured equipment, so I chose an FAI Russian armored car and a Flammpanzer B2(f) – a converted French Char B1 bis – for my list. Both of these kits are from Warlord.

28mm US Infantry/Airborne

So this is a decent way to wrap up the year – I now have no unpainted 28mm US infantry, crew, guns or vehicles. That doesn’t mean I’m actually finished. I’d like to add in some additional vehicles, but it’s still a good personal milestone. Here’s the tally: 2 guns, 9 vehicles, 180 infantry/crew.


Back from Historicon

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.

Flea Market

Some HorrorClix figures and Warlord’s Panzer IV, Puma and Humber Scout Car that I scored in the flea market.

Warlord 28mm French Char B1 Bis

I made a last minute change to my French list for this week’s Early War Bolt Action tournament, and decided to finish my Char B1 Bis. This was a very quick turnaround – about four hours not counting prep, priming and drying time. I brush painted it with Vallejo acrylics and weathered it with acrylic washes. The markings are from Warlord and I-94 Enterprises.


28mm WWII Early War French

In a few weeks I’ll be participating in a 650 point weekday Bolt Action tournament at Huzzah Hobbies, my FLGS. The theme is Early War and as I’ll be running my French I dug them out for a few photos, including my newly completed Motorized Infantry squad. The regular infantry and cavalry are from Crusader, the MMG Team, Somua S35 and 75mm are from Warlord, the Panhard P178 is from Army Group North and the Motorized Troops are from Battle Honors.

Objective Markers

I’m playing in a Bolt Action tournament this weekend and made these three objectives to give to my opponents; a soldier’s field grave, a road sign, and a weapons cache.

Historicon Painting Competition

Here are the miniatures I entered in this year’s Historicon Painting Competition. I was fortunate enough, and very flattered, to have my M-10 receive 2nd in the Historical Unit/War Machine category. Many thanks to Wargames Illustrated for sponsoring the competition. The other winners, and a much more professional photograph of my M-10, may be seen here.
