WWII(28mm)


US Airborne 57mm Anti-Tank Gun

Just finished a US Airborne 57mm gun to beef up their anti tank capabilities. Bazooka's are pretty effective, but lack the punch at longer ranges so enter the 57mm which is both more powerful and gives a longer reach.I really enjoy painting Artizan figures with the raised detail and characterful posing so I plan to add even more to my collection.I painted them using mostly Vallejo paints and some Foundry with MIG pigments added to the undercarriage and gun shield. I had to create my own slots on the base for the crew which I think worked out well.I plan on adding more forces for my Normandy collection which is filling out quite nicely and in fact I've started to think of other theaters within Europe so looking to go to Italy next.Thanks for viewing!Miniature Company- Artizan Designs

US Airborne collection reinforcements

1 Squad Leader, 1 BAR,  2x Paras w/ Thompson smgAdding some more Airborne reinforcements to my already existing collection. I've noticed through gaming I just didn't have enough Airborne troops so decided to paint up some more. I've been playing quite a bit of CoC and more squad options tend to be the most popular choice so these are needed.6x Paras with M1 GarandsIn terms of WWII I've always been drawn to the Airborne assets of all sides to US Para's, German Fallschirmjäger and just about any nationality that fielded troops of this type. I suppose it's a combination of uniform, Esprit de Corps and typically tough as old boots in a fight.1x Bazooka  w/2 crew, 1x medic, and 1x LMG w/2 crewI painted these using mostly with Vallejo paints and some Foundry and AP adding additional highlights plus some MIG pigments on the bases.The figures themselves are from Artizan Designs and because of some exaggerations they pack a lot of character and are very painter friendly. They are really great models to work

Airborne vs Fallschirmjäger (Normandy) CoC

The battlefieldNick and I played another excellent game of Chain of Command set in my favorite backdrop Normandy. In this battle an elite force of Airborne comes to grip with some tenacious Fallscjirmjäger in a real clash of arms. Since this was set in Normandy Nick decided to field a regular instead of elite Fallschirmjäger force to take in account the attrition of the veterans replaced with less experienced recruits. Nonetheless the Fallschrimjäger proved to be still formidable and stubborn.We played the "Swift to Support" scenario from the 1940 handbook, but used it in an 1944 setting with the Airborne as the attacker and Fallschirmjäger as the defender. I played the Airborne and Nick the Fallschirmjäger. Both have equal support points. The defenders mission was to hold out as long as possible until reinforcements arrive with the result that his support options arrive at the end of a turn which in CoC can take a bit as the defender needs to either build up a chain of command dice or either player roll 3 si

Ramshackle Barn and Patrol Markers

My first entry into the challenge this season and putting a few points up. Although I'm not likely to ever have much it's a start! It's also my first post of the new year so once again Happy New Year everyone! Every since I saw this from Renedra Terrain I knew I had to have it. I would say it's probably the best terrain piece they have made. It has excellent character and just checks the boxes for me.While it fits perfectly for AWI and ACW it's useful for other periods and could be used as early as the French and Indian War right on up to modern times. The composition of the design is excellent and in fact I may get another one and modify it a bit so it's different.I enjoyed painting the barn very much as you can really "go to town" so to speak on creating effects on old wood. I wanted the barn to look old and dirty with mold and moss beginning to take over. I used mostly craft paints and MIG pigments to get the effects I was after.The Barn is 28mm in scale and comes in a plastic multi-kit that is very easy t
