Tribute to Dürer

Definitely the last post for 2014, a Perry figure converted to look remotely like Dürers famous knight. Thanks to my poor sculpting skills I had to cover half of the face with a greenstuff beard after having it messed up beyond recovery. Hope you can guess some similarity ;-)

Battlefield Grand Bazaar

Repainted the wheels of the LAV a bit to match the colours with the roads surface.

Modern Troopers

Some figures for my Battlefield diorama. Painted them in a mix of colours to look a bit like in the computer game. Figures are by Elhiem - 20mm of course ;-)

Foot Knights VII

The last few Burgundians and the finished unit. The flag took me some time ...

Afrika Korps Platoon Command

Though I promised once never to touch anything larger WWII related than a 20mm figure I couldnt stand the temptation any longer and did some Perry "test figures". I think it will remain merely a slip-up from the right path ;-)

No Perry Medievals this time - well, not quite true,  there is actually one Perry Shooter among the Claymore Crew - do you spot him?

Diorama Base

The base for the LAV-25. Its a Black Dog resin piece in 1/72, painted according to the box art. Figures are next.

AWI Brits

Loads of these Perry plastics still laying around and waiting for their time.

Its the Trumpeter kit with the Black Dog accessories set in 1/72. It will be part of a small diorama inspired by the game Battlefield 3 ;-)

Tzeentch Warrior No. 6

Not GW but a company called Imbrian Arts. Sold as a basilisk originally it has obviously some Tzeentch potentials. The sculpt is quite nice, a bit taller than your average GW figure but much slimmer and sporting more realistic proportions (what you may call realistic with regard to a four armed, snake headed birdman).

Foot Knights V

More defenders of Neuss and first unit finished...don't look too close at the Hessian flag, def. not among my best works ;-)

Pro Gloria Miniatures - Plastic Landsknecht Crowdfunding

In case you haven't noticed yet - their campaign is up and running on Indiegogo, see here:

What you can see already regarding the figures looks promising, a bit Old GW Empire like (seems to be the same scupltor) so something for both worlds historical and fantasy I guess.

Sd.Kfz. 251 D

Another PSC Hanomag. I am not very happy with the outcome of the hard edge camo, found it incredebly difficult to get realistic curvy lines with masking tape/blu tack, maybe I try silly putty next time...

Foot Knights III

The 3rd batch is ready, defenders of Neuss again - you can see the pattern now ;-) Noticed too late that the left and right shoulder armours are different on the left guy - things like that happen when you mash up 3 different Perry boxes!

Panzer IV

Nothing fancy, just the PSC kit out of the box with ordinary three tone camo.

Foot Knights

The first 4 of the new Perry foot knights. Painted as defenders of Neuss. The tabard shows the coat of arms of Dieterich von Elben, a fellow knight of Landgraf Herman. Elben was killed during the siege.

For all interested in the siege of Neuss, there is a short article in the current issue of Medieval Warfare IV.4

Marder III M

Used masking tape for the first time. The application is actually much easier than I thought. Cutting the tape, masking and airbrushing the green camo took no more than about 30 mins.
