German Heavy Tank Comapany from early 1943, North Aftica

Hi all,

Well this weekend I finished up the Tiger I and Panzer III tanks to form an early Heavy tank company. In the early part of 1943, when the Tiger was first introduced they had a mix of Panzer III's as well as Tiger tanks. 

These are all 3mm tanks and I have started working on some Americans to face them.

Have a good week!

Market Garden Game of CoC at the club

Hi all!

Well I had a great Sunday as I was able to get over to the wargaming club to play a game of Chain of Command.  Joakim and Koen are preparing to run a game at a gaming convention here in Sweden.
It was an enjoyable game. Joakim and I commanded the Germans and we tried to be as aggressive as possible but we were beat back by the tough British Paras.

It was a good game, all in 20mm.  I just had to show up to the game both Koen and Joakim had brought everything else to the club.

Here are some pictures from the game.

Have a good week!

Mixed bag of stuff

Hi all,
Here is an update for you all. I have done a few things.

First up is a game of Mission for Today, which is the new version of  B-17 Queen of the Skies.
Here are a few pictures of the game. I enjoyed this new take on the original. It is a fun solo player game. This was my fist mission and the crew survived!

Next up is the finished unit of Infantry for the Scanian War project that I am working on. I got some sand that I glued to the stand and then dry brushed on some green paint. Not bad!

I also painted up this Swedish WWII tank, it is the Stridsvagan m/41 It was a licence version of the PZ-38T but modified and built here in Sweden.  Here is a link to get some more information on the original. Link Here are some pictures of my version in 15mm.

And lastly are some 3mm WWII German tanks. I am working on building a company from the 501Heavy Tank Battalion that served in North Africa in 1942-1943.  So I have some Tiger I's and some Panzer III G tanks.  I painted up a platoon to see how they looked and I am happy with the results. Sorry for the blurry images.
