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.
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.
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.
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.
