"Rebasing" my German Infantry, Part III

Yesterday I reworked the last of my German Troops for the "Behind Omaha" Game. Now some static grass will follow and the Mortar in the right gets a rack. Then the Germans are finished and the British Troops will follow. Really, a long term project :-(

Obviously my Problem with the Pictures in the Bloglists istn`t solved yet. :-(

CH-34 G & Kraka, Roskopf, 1:100

Today I will show you this Helicopter and a so called "Kraka" (Kraftkarren) with 20mm Gun from Roskopf.

Do someone know why my Posts aren´t shown with pictures in the Blog-Lists of other blogs? What have I done wrong???

8th Army - Half Time - Matchbox, 1:76

As promised here some pictures of the progress of the 8´th Army by Matchbox. 15 were finished, 16 more a ready for painting. I hope you like them, and I hope, my customer like them, too ;-)

Catachaner, Update (W.I.P.)

Yesterday I reworked the Catachans. I tried to cut of the mould lines and repainted these parts and some details. A light wash with ink was the next step. Still W.I.P.
And I finished the first half of my 8 th Army. Pictures will follow.
At last a welcome to In Chigh!

All the good things!

Nice Boxart

The pictures are promising

What I found inside is great!

The tracks!

A detail picture. I couldnt`t believe that this one is a snap kit!

Last but not least, the decals.

I was amazed! This one is a "Snap Kit" without gluing needed? Wow, but we will see after the assembling, if the pieces fit together.

German Infantry, Matchbox, 1:76

Three more finished. Thats it with the germans for the next week. Now I have to go on with the 32 Matchbox 8´th Army Boys...


I was curious about the WH 40 K universe and when I found a troop of Catachans on ebay I bid for them. It was a troop of 18 Figures and I paid 4,50 € plus shipping. A lot of them were painted but a few were only prime coated black. Here you find my first attempts in this scale, because I never done something larger then 20 mm. Still work in Progress, obviously, but I like them.

This is half of the lot I bought. You can see, some of them were painted. I will rework them later!

Rebasing my Behind Omaha Troops, Part II

Yesterday I continued the reworking of the bases of my German Forces for the "Behind Omaha" Game. I think they look much better now. A few of them need some static grass, but then they´re finished. I would say, 2/3 are rebased now. Sorry, I haven`t reocginzed that some pictures are blurred. Perhaps I can make some new ones this weekend.

British Commandos, Matchbox, 1:76

I´ve managed to base my british Commandos from Matchbox. They also got a last drybrush. Nice Figures, they make me think about my childhood long, long ago ;-) No I´ve got a few more of them, so it will be a special unit for my "Behind Omaha" Forces.
