Work in Progress January 2016   2 comments

One of my big purchases in 2015 was the 21st Panzer Division Stug tanks and other mechanized units based on French equipment.  After a long series of negotiations, I was able to convince a good friend (Brad) into trading for these hard to find tanks.

I still have some halftracks to finish painting.  The next step for the whole army is to ink, set decals, and then seal.

I have also been working on some Soviets.  I was able to assemble and paint 8 x T34/85s for the Seelow battle, a battery of 152mm guns, and the heavy rocket battery which I got for XMAS.  They all still need some finishing touched.  I also completed the ZIS 2 57mm AT guns.

I have a number of Soviet infantry, I am working on to complete the Strelkovy for mid and late war plus more ISU 152 or 122 to assemble.  Not sure which it will be yet.

I also have:

  • 3 x Zvezda T72 tanks painted
  • 1 Zvezda BTR 80 APC painted
  • 6 x M1 tanks from TY box
  • 2 x AH1 Cobra from TY box
  • 3 x M109 155m guns from Vietnam box almost painted
  • 4 x M113 APC painted
  • 4 x M113 APC assembled
  • A WW1 German army assembled and based
  • WW1 Stoss platoon painted
  • WW1 British trench mortar painted
  • WW2 US 101st engineer platoon
  • WW2 German volksgrenadier (1 platoon out of 3 completed)
  • 5x KV1S tanks assembled
  • 4x M36 Jacksons almost painted
  • 1 M577 painted, 1 not, and 1 objective to paint
  • 1 Modern US platoon (rebel minis and Khurasan) underway.

As you can see my concentration is out of control!

Team Yankee Soviets are inbound.  I am almost settled in my house in Germany.  I just need to find a good gaming group!

AAR: Seelow Heights   3 comments

Seelow T341

I had the privilege to travel with my command on a Staff Ride to visit the battlefields associated with the Seelow Heights and the Battle of Berlin.  The Navy never had staff rides and it was an amazing experience to attend one as a civilian.

Bolt Action Mid Year Update   1 comment

I have accomplished a significant milestone.  I have a second (adversary) army for Bolt Action.  The first being the US Para.  Originally, I intended to complete a SS army, but it was quite enjoyable to paint Fallschirmjagers!  Now it is time to learn the rules again and play a couple matches.  Oh!  I just completed the Puma below too.

The Soviet KV Collection   2 comments

My son and I got into World of Tanks over the summer.  Subsequently, this prompted my son to ask for some KV5 tanks as they are a good premium money maker in the game.  Battlefront released a boxset of 3 KV5 several years ago as part of the Mid War Monsters release.  Word is they will be offering individual tanks for sale via special offer soon.  My kid painted 2 out of three of the tanks with a special camo scheme that was inspired from world of tanks.
