Bolt Action: The V2 Test Site

For a fictional scenario, Assault on Peenemünde, intended: Test site launchpad of a German 'Vergeltungswaffe 2' .
Both the rocket and the parts of the launchpad are from the 3D printer. The corresponding files are available on Thingiverse. Since my printer only has a small print area, I had to scale down the originals to about 90%. The V2 is still a little bit too big. Although it was about 14m high in reality, it would be about 15.5m in my printed version. This is negligible for me and doesn't matter for the scenario. I glued all parts on my own base of 3mm plasticard and added nothing but a little earth and grass and the yellow numbering plates. And of course I painted the whole thing.

Saga: Normannen

That's a post that's been slumbering in the drafts for a long time. Michi therefore instructed me to publish the thing now and write that he was too stupid to send it himself. :-)

Bolt Action: SdKfz 234, Puma

The SdKfz 234/Puma is a very welcome addition to my German army, which mainly consist of infantry so far. The kit is from Warlord Games/Italeri, scale 1/56. All parts were very accurate and easy to assemble. However, the level of detail of the suspension and axles is exaggeratedly high and not required for this type of wargaming model. The assembly was still fun. Afterwards I painted the model mainly with different airbrush layers, a few details with the brush. The dirt was applied with Vallejo pigments.
