Painting this weekend

     Well it has been a relaxing weekend here in Stockholm. The sun was out from behind the clouds for a short time this afternoon which made for a pleasant afternoon. I worked on painting up two well know ships to start my WWII Navy with.

     I am working on painting up the ships involved in the Battle of Denmark Straights 1941. I started with the Bismarck and Prinz Eugen. All the ships are 1:2400 scale ships from GHQ.They are very detailed models. Of course I do not paint as well as Soren but this is my best shot at painting these German warships.

Here is the Prinz Eugen (foreground) and the Bismarck (back)

     Next up will be the British ships, HMS Hood and HMS Prince of Whales.  I am waiting on an order of warbase bases so I can paint them up and add the labels that Soren has made for me.

Here is a top down view of the two ships, both are ready for battle.

     Once I have all the ships done up for the Battle of Denmark Straights I will switch gears and paint up some US Battleships from the WWI period.  Soren and I have been talking about having a battle with British and Americans vs the German Navy.  It should be fun.

     Stay tuned and see you next time.

    1. Thanks, I will post the finished results after I base the ships. You should jump on board and start Naval wargaming. I just got done putting together some American Battleships for WWI. It will be fun to play some what if's with them against the German's or the British.

  2. Nice work indeed Mark, that Bismarck model is massive. Looking forward to running the Battle of Denmark Strait - and to test our WW1 US Intervention scenario :0) I'll start work on some US navy name tags for you!

    1. I just got done putting together the American Battleships for WWI. I will be posting pictures of the finished Bismarck and Prinz Eugen. Thanks for the game of CY-6 this past week.
