Inspiration Modellbau, Mainz, 17. + 18. September

Last weekend I was in Mainz at "Inspiration Modellbau". A nice event with a lot of nice Modells, a lot of possibilities to spend money for new kits and a small part with wargaming. Mojo from the B.O. Forum built a gameboard so we were abele to present the "Behind Omaha" Game to the audience. I was there on Sunday, met some of the B.O Forum-Members for the first time, was able to play a short match (I lost, as usual), made about 100 Pictures of beautiful modells and figures and spend a lot of money. This week I will show you a few pictures of the event. I want to start with the B.O. Game.

This is the beautiful gameboard. Congrats, Mojo, well done!

This is my unsuccsesful try to stop....

these U.S. Forces

Another nice game!

And welcome to Luca Tempesta! Have fun!

Russian Infantry (Winter)

I want to add these figures to my "Behind Omaha" Forces, as there will be a List with russian stuff for this game. The figures were painted during the last two years and now I started putting them on bases.

I want to make two different units, one for summer and one for winter. This is part one: "Winter"

T 34, Zvezda, Finished?.....

O.k. I cll this one "finished". I highlighted the edges, drybrushed it with light grey and covered it with matt varnish. I think i will drybrush the tracks and perhabs I will add some mud. But nevertheless I call it finished ;-)

M 10 "Wolverine", Armourfast, 1:72

Another fast assembly kit I´m working on. I made a stupid mistake with this one. I applicated the decals and forgot to cover them with glossy colour ( I´m getting old :-(. This time I used a wash with diluted oil colours and the thinner destroyed the decal on the right and damaged the one of the left turret side. Unfortunately I had only one in my spare box... Next steps will be a highlight of the edges, painting the tracks and a second wash. The figures are from SHQ, I thin they fit in well.

LCVP, Pegasus, 1:72

Finally my LCVP is finished. I painted it, wasn`t satisfied, painted it again, I wasn´t satisfied and painted again. I´m still not satisfied with the results but enough is enough! Pictures with soldiers will follow soon. I have to paint the bases tonight...

Armourfast, Sherman M4A3, 75MM,

Today the promised Sherman. Still W.I.P. I painted it with U.S. Dark Green from Vallejo. After using "Glänzer" I applicated the decals. One on the front will follow, but I´m not sure yet if I need some filler first. Then I washed it with dilluted oil colours (burnt umbra) & devlon mud from GW. The tracks, the MG and some roadwheels must still be painted. Stay tuned...
