"Yes, Fritz, we are stopping here for fuel.. they have the best Strudels this side of Bremen!"
Don't mind the computer cords, my computer area is also my painting area!
Well, I am all set for Historicon 2014 which is a Mid War tournament at 1485 points. In my previous installments, to be found: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 I morphed from an EW list to a MW list, as the tournament era has since changed. I was able to play in the first local EW tournament and got Best Presentation, and for this I painted all that infantry I had. Which led me to change my list somewhat for the Big Show in July. I'll let the pics below do most of the talking:
I always have trouble differentiating commanders so instead of the usual red Nazi flag, I went with something more sinister.. Officers with a Map!
Objectives: The only thing worse than an officer with a map are multiple officers sharing a map! The objective on the right is based on the British EW Montgomery objective, and a Zvezda Opel Blitz truck. The idea is that they are looting a broken down British supply carrier. (Hint, had nudie mags in it too)
A close up of my maps made by saving colour map photos, reducing down onto a Word file, and printing.. on my $35 cheapo printer.Turned out awesome looking. Finding tasteful '40's era pin-ups was 'interesting research' that the wife didn't find amusing for some reason! ;)
See you guys at Historicon!!
