Using conversion kits by S&S to create a steyr radio car and a flak cab. The Flak 38 is by Zvezda - i was too lazy to built the white metal flak provided by S&S :-)

Fallen Frontiers Riff

Some years ago i backed a kickstarter campaign for this board game Fallen Frontiers - which i never played :-) The miniatures are quite nice though and i rediscovered them during the move to the new house. I promised myself to paint some minis of the alien invaders force (called Riff) from time to time now...

Avanpost Miniatures

Recently i came aross this range of miniatures Avanpost . Amongst other things they offer multipart 28mm TYW/ECW miniatures. I am not sure exactly but I guess these are 3D printed minis and probably shrunk versions of their larger 75mm figures. However, the quality is really high: details are crisp, proportions and figure poses are very realistic, overall fit and finish is excellent. Assembly is very easy. Some of the details like laces and belt buckles are so fine - i will having a hard time painting them (test for the magnifying goggles :-)


Compared to Perry French plastic knights they are about the same size, Avanpost horses are a bit smaller though.

This Is The Way!

From the abyss of ETSY I bring you Mando on Blurrg :-) Its nice to see the quality of 3D printers having improved quite a bit recently, not much to see with regard to printing marks.

I am becoming a bit of a lazy painter nowadays, so the blurrg is completely airbrushed except for eyes and mouth...




and more knights are looking for a new home:

20mm German Infantry

New Waffen SS grenadiers by PSC. The material is called Ultracast, reminds me a bit of GWs finecast ;-) a mix between resin and plastic. Minis are very good, lots of crisp details and lots of different poses in the box, bit of  mould lines/flash to remove though.



Here is your scale comparison with more 20mm WWII minis

from left to right: Britannia, Grubby, PSC, Wartime and AB

And a scale comparison with the big 1/72 WWII guys

from left to right: Italeri, Almogavers (OOP), PSC, Fantassin, TQD
