Germany's Armoured Fist - Leopard 2 for 'Team Yankee'

To complete my initial force for 'Team Yankee' I acquired Battlefront's German starter set 'Kampfgruppe Müller'. Although I decided to postpone the BO-105 anti-tank helicopters I was in need of a couple of Leopard 2 main battle tanks to withstand the Red Horde. Thus I painted them actually a few weeks ago but didn't find the time to take pictures earlier than today:

Lest we forget !

Remembrance Day in Britain and Volkstrauertag here in Germany. Remember those who gave their lives that we can live in peace and freedom.

Santa's little helper

Year after year not only the festive season approaches but two wargamer community ventures as well 'Secret Santa' run by Ian Willey and his helpful wife and 'Santa Clause' run by Chris Stoesen.

It's difficult this year since I'm more or less contended with my lead pile. I've got spare figures for nearly all the periods I'm in but nevertheless there are a couple of gaps:

Crisis 2016 - Some impressions...

So last weekend Crisis 2016 took place in Antwerp and I had the great pleasure to visit the show with a couple of friends from our THS wargaming club. A tremendous weekend again from which I collected a couple of impressions.

Finally I'm off to Antwerp for CRISIS 2016.

This year our club will bring a fantasy game covering a battle losely based on Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. There our club fellow Robert will present his extraordinary collection of 15mm fantasy figures and his lovely terrain to bring a skirmish battle between orcs and Riders of Rohan to life.

We'll use the 'Dragon Rampant' ruleset for a quick and entertaining game. There are some preview pictures on the LAF forum: Here.

Please drop by and take the chance to leave the anonymity of the Internet. I'd be glad to meet some of you in Antwerp and have a chat about the hobby.

Here's were you find us. Pretty much in the centre of hall 1:

See you there !
