I have a soft spot for show and con miniatures, exclusives and to some degree limited models. Over the years, I collected quite a few of these of the shows and events I visited. In some cases, like at Salute for example, you can buy remaining stock of older event miniatures at the show, and […]

In late 2017 Warlord Games covered the Opel Blitz / Maultier combi plastic kit for Bolt Action. The truck is one of the workhorses of the German army, transporting troops, supplies and ammunition were they were needed. The Opel Blitz is the most known of these trucks, other companies like Ford or Daimler supplied their […]
The turn of the year and the usual duties as a father have led to a small break in our Dead Man's Hand article series. Fortunately, since I did not tackle the project on my own, we will again have a Wild Wednesday occasionally. Finn's introduced his first gang member, Hector Villa, some time ago. […]
Based upon the already available Opel Blitz Kit (RM280026), Rubicon published the Maultier variant that replaces the rear wheels with tracks. As with some of their other kits, like the SdKfz 25x, they cover further accessories. For the Blitz and Maultier there is the option to upgrade the cargo bed with the box body "Einheitskoffer". […]
I watched the tv mini-series version of the original movie Das Boot from 1981 on amazon prime last year or the year before. It had enhanced audio and video quality, with 6 episodes covering 52 minutes each. In November and December 2018 a tv series sequel of the same name, was released as an 8-part. […]

Christmas is near, the holidays have begun and I will spend my two weeks off with the family as well as with the hobby. I got a little christmas present from Radaddel. Thank you very much, always a satisfied customer and with this little bonus towards the end of the year more than ever. Some […]
A well known character from the second season of Vikings, Thorrun is available as a 28mm miniature from Bad Squido.In this small video, I`m taking a look at the blister pack.Now to decide to paint her scarred or not...
A small, and normally final, addition to my Dux force.These two mounted Curaidh, or Hearthguard, are normally the elite bodyguards of the lords.But I bought this two model Gripping Beast blister for other reasons. Namely to represent my Lord (or a noble) and a champion.By putting them on horses, I can have them join my mounted regiments for games where speed might be of the essence, or a devastating cavalry charge might be called for. Though as mostly the defender in the campaign, that won't be happening very often...But heck, it at least allows me to have all options open...
Minor progress to be certain, but the wheels are still turning for this project on my hobby table... Here is my brilliant (?) idea - pictured above is a Redoubt spearman with his weapon. Lead/pewter spears can be a pain to straighten (and keep straight), so I thought that it might be nice to replace the shaft with brass tube. The tube is nearly the same diameter as the spear, and would
It has been a long time - over two years - since infantry from my Spanish Civil War project graced the pages of this blog: This is an infantry section for the Republican army, circa 1937, as outlined in the marvelous España supplement for Chain of Command, along with a figure that will be used to represent a Medical Orderly (above and right of the center of the pic). 15 soldiers - 3 squads

And I already gathered a couple of miniatures for the scale comparison shots. In case you have any wishes, what I should […]
Okay, cry with me. This documentary (part of the Secret History line of documentaries) premiered the last sunday of september 2018 on "our" Discovery channel.It was originally aired in... 2014!!!!It handles about one of the biggest manmade structures and engineering feats mankind ever made: the Great Wall of China, which was build over a period of 2400 years and various dynasties, a period "broken up" by Mongol rule (and it originally failed to keep them out as intended).Now, the biggest revelation perhaps is that there is no Great Wall. It are actually 16 different walls linked together as it turned out, then unified into one connecting structure over time.Another intresting piece was the way the mortar kept the wall together as good as it does, over all those 1000s of years. It's not like legend says by the bones of deceased workers grinded into it... but by your every day kitchen ingredient, sticky rice.But perhaps for me the most awesome part was the signalling method of flags and even b
