Review - Warlord Games Plastic half-track

Bild
Just a few days ago Warlord Games released their latest half-track model. Nothing special about vehicles from Warlord Games, but this one is not a resin model, it's made of plastic!

So let us take a closer look at this model: and see what is in the box.
Here we are. As you can see, there are quite some parts and, what I especially like, some waterslide transfers! (I don't know if Warlord Games puts some in every vehicle pack, I got none as I received my StuG II model some weeks ago)

Building the model itself is quite simple, the parts fit together easily and whenever there is some cutting work to be done, your hobby knife will cut easily through the soft plastic. In about 15 minutes I got the main parts of the model assembled.

There are a lot of smaller details and stowage as well as a gunner wit both, MG '42 and '34 options. For this review, I did not glue those things to the model, because I want to make some changes to the model before it gets painted.

Dystopian Wars - Kingdom of Britannia fleet finished

Bild
Doncaster Bomber ziehen Ihre Kreise über der FlotteFregatten der Attacker-Klasse flankieren das SchlachschiffTribal-Klasse Kreuzer sorgen für die nötige FeuerkraftUnd das Schlachtschiff der Ruler-Klasse ist über jeden Zweifel erhabenDie Fregatten sorgen für die nötige WendigkeitI just finished painting my Kingdom of Britannia fleet! The quality of the resin models is amazing, I think these are the fines models, I've ever painted so far. I'm really looking forward to painting more of this.
 Hope you enjoy it!

Cheers, Thomas

 Ich bin gerade damit fertig geworden, meine Britische Flotte für Dystopian Wars zu bemalen! Die Qualität der Modelle ist unglaublich, ich habe noch nie feiner detaillierte Modelle in der Hand gehabt.
Freue mich schon drauf, in der Zukunft noch viele mehr zu bemalen!

 Ich hoffe sie gefallen Euch!

 Gruß, Thomas

Hope you like it!

Tactica 2013 - Sturm auf den Reichstag

Bild
Fighting men of the Red Army and Navy!
The last storming of the Hitlerite lair is on. Set new examples of military skill and gallantry in the concluding battles. Smite the enemy harder, skilfully break up his defence, pursue and surround the German invaders, give them no respite until they cease resistance.
(Order of the day No. 20, 1945)

Finally we can disclose the secret about our participation game on the Hamburger Tactica 2013:

The escalade of the Reichstag 1945! 
Take command of the soviet troops and raise the flag of the Motherland on top of the roof.

... more to follow soon!

Der Sturm auf Hitlers Versteck ist in vollem Gange! Setzt neue Maßstäbe Eurer militärischen Fähigkeiten und der Tapferkeit in den Abschließenden Kämpfen. Trefft den Feind hart, brecht gekonnt die Verteidigungslinien, verfolgt und umringt die Deutschen Invasoren und lasst Ihnen keine Ruhepause bis Ihr Widerstand zerschlagen ist!

StuG III Ausf G. "Saukopf"

Bild
One of the best-looking German tanks of WW 2 is, at least for me, the Sturmgeschütz III Ausführung G. with Topfblende, better known as "Saukopf" (for the mantle of the gun looking like a boar head). This will be the perfect support tank for my grenadiers. So when yesterday the model arrived, I lost no time and got busy. On the picture above I just unpacked it and put the essential part together to get e feel of how the model will look at the end. And I must say, I'm absolutely satisfied about this model. This is quite a chunk of resin but the details look fine and crisp. Today I will base coat the model and scratch-build the missing MG, which is not provided with this model, although it should be on this tank. It's not missing, Warlord just does not provide a MG, dunno why. After base coating the Tank itself, the Schürzen will get the same treatment. I did not jet decide whether I will add some battle damage to them. What do you think about damaged Schürzen? Apart fr…

You've probably seen this wandering around the network in the last weeks and now I got this award, too!

Bruno from Lonewolfs Welten (which is a great blog, just in case you didn't know) awarded me the "Liebster Blog" award. Thanks a lot, Bruno!

I think a award that is especially for the smaller blogs (below 200 followers) is a good idea and it's a great favor for me to be awarded.

So after a whole Weekend of celebrating, it's time to return the favour and pass the trophy to my very own favorites  But first of all, the rules:
 "Copy and paste" the award on your blog, and talk about it a bit.  Select for the award your five favourite blogs with less than 200 followers, leaving a comment on one of their post to notify them that they have won the award. You need also to list them in your own blog. Enjoy the moment, knowing that you have just made someone's day Of course, there is no obligation to pass the award, but it is a good deed reallySo here are t…
