Hey folks,

Sorry I've been out of it for about a week now with this virus that's going around here in California.  Just posting some older pictures of my Stuarts that I use for my US Airborne guys.

Short Update

Russ from the NORCALFOW group and I putt together a Total War scenario (Cassino) that is scheduled for Jan 2nd at Endgame in Oakland, CA.

Well I'm going to have a BUSY BUSY two weeks if I want to get this done in time.  I need to:

1- Start painting my 3rd FJ Platoon (Battleworn wearing, gulp, water tan and tropicals)
2- Finish my Pak 38s and one last "proxy" RSO
3- Finish 1 STUG 10.5cm
4 - Paint the JR Miniatures "Cassino" Building and RR station.
5- Make a ton of hills.

Yeah I got my hands full.  And the last 3 days the commander (aka wife) and Short Round (aka the 4 1/2 year old) have been out of it with the flu.

So I got some stuff done in the weee hours.

First off is my first FJ wearing water-tan smock.  I think  it came out pretty good.

The next project, which I did tonight, was to finish the Platoon Command Team for  my 3 Pak 38 unit. 

I also decided to go all out and rebase my two Pak 38s.... go tone done but I'm 99% happy with the rebase.

Made huge leaps with the destroyed building.....

Not completed.... 90% done.

And finally got these Little arty markers done...

Need to make three times what is shown...

Fallschirmjager Company Command and RSO Objective

Worked on an objective I've been wanting to do for a while. 

When I was young my dad used to subscribe to "Military Modeller Magazine".  There was a great diorama of a RSO resupplying a Type 166.  Well I've always like the RSO so I decided to make an objective similar to that diorama.  Its almost done just  wanted to show you guys what I have so far.  All that is really missing is the resupplies which will be glued on later.

Working on some mid war FJ command stands.  The first I'm not too happy with as the color of the grey green smocks aren't doing it for me.  im using Vallejo 866 and I think I'm going to switch to 886.  The figures are old school Battlefront from the early FJ kit.  The two in the type-two smocks are radio crewmen.  the castings are.... well... inferiror to what they have now but I dig the poses.  The second command stand is a group of three wearing tropical pants.  These are modelled to be used in mid war and late war Italy.

The figure to the right is also old school Battlefront FJs.

!Bienvenido! (International Welcome)

! Hola mis amigos latinos y europeos! Por favor, si usted tiene alguna pregunta o comentario que me haga saber. Puedo hablar, leer y escribir español con fluidez. Nací en Argentina y emigró a los EE.UU. cuando era joven, pero todavía lo hablan a diario. Yo soy un modelador primero y luego un wargamer. Estoy mirando adelante a oír de usted.

(Hi my latino and European friends! Please if you have any questions or comments let me know. I speak, read, and write fluent Spanish. I was born in Argentina and immigrated to the U.S. when I was young but still speak it on a daily basis. I am a modeler first then a wargamer. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.)


10.5cm LG40, FJ Mortar crew finished, and guess a new project.

Hey folks,

Lazy day off here enjoying some free time.  Hope you're enjoying the pictures and projects.  Make sure you check out News From the Front podcast on WWPD blog.  Great interview with Wayne from FOW, covering some great rules, and good chat from the guys.

Today I've been putting some 10.5cm LG40s together, finished off a 8cm mortar crew, and started a new FJ project.  The boards and bocage have been put aside due to weather.  Enjoy a few pictures.

Haven't picked up "Cross of Iron" but I'm writing up two more book reviews for WWPD blog.
