Bolt Action Germans

Hi there
Late last year a local friendly gaming store organized a escalation campaign for Bolt Action. Since I had a lot of other hobby projects at the time I was reluctant to start another gaming system and I did not participate. In January I changed my mind and as it often is with me I went big. I got 2000 points of German Fallschirmjäger. Yes Splittertarn that will be fine to paint in 28mm... I quick painted a squad but surprisingly  I kind of lost the joy of Splittertarn quiet fast. Who saw that coming?
In May I went on and got a Pegasus Bridge from Warlord Games and with it came some standard Grenadiers. What you see in this post is all what I have painted until today and there are still more Jäger and Grenadiers waiting. It might not be the best of paintjobs but it should be enough from a gamers point of view, so enjoy.

My sovjet Bolt Action force

 Our local gaming store started a small Bolt Action campaign. So I joined with a soviet force.


The goal of the campagne was to paint up 300, 500, 750 and 1000 point force and to play with as many opponents as possible.


My first 300 points were:

SAGA Normans

Hi everybody

This week something different from Flames of War. Despite having actually enough running gaming projects we recently got into SAGA. But probably you all know about the hobby clock and finishing all models... 

Since it was a small project I finished painting my 4 Point Norman Warband Starter Set from Grippingbeast quiet fast. This are the first 4 points and more cavalery models are on my painting table at the moment. I hope that the others will finish their warbands soon so we can do some battle reports. 

Without further ado here the pictures of my small warband.
The so far completed Normans.

Deutsche Infanteriekompanie Great War

Hallo zusammen

Vor etwas mehr als einem Jahr jährte sich der Ausbruch des 1. Weltkrieges zum hundertsten mal. Zu diesem Anlass hat sich Battlefront Miniatures entschieden sich der „Urkatastrophe des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts“ zu widmen. Nach erstem bedenken habe ich mich dann doch dazu entschieden mir eine Kompaniebox deutscher Infanterie mit einigen Extras für diese Periode zu holen.

Eigentlich hatte ich schon zu beginn des Jahres das meiste fertig gestellt. Ausnahmen bildeten der Zug Stosstruppen, Mienenwerfer, Tankabwehrkanonen und Artillerie. Noch habe ich kein Spiel mit den Modellen bestritten.

Vor kurzem hat Battlefront nun Bilder zu einer Erweiterung der Modellreihe mit Franzosen und Amerikanern veröffentlicht. Motiviert dadurch habe ich in kurzer Zeit die restlichen Modelle abgeschlossen. Hier folgen nun die Bilder zu meiner kleinen Great War Sammlung.

Hohei Chutai

Over the summer I started a little secret project. Unknown to the other players of our group I painted up a japanese Hohei Chutai company for Early War. Here I'd like to show you some pictures of my work.

Restarting with a Biggy!

Hi there!

It has been a long time since the last post on this blog. We'd like to revive the blog in the upcoming months. We will shift our Flames of War focus to a more general one and we will start to post at least some stuff in german.



We start with a biggy, the ETC! The european team championship is considered by some players the pinnacle of the whole year in gaming. As last year we are part of team Switzerland in Flames of War. Every year on the second weekend of August players from all over the world meet in Europe to celebrate their hobby in one of the biggest tournament events of the year. This year prague was chosen to be the "Nerdvana" of compeditive wargaming!

We hope that we can bring you some coverage of our expirence over the next few days. We will try to not only focus on FoW. We will see how much time there will be besides actually competing and having a good time. For those in prague good luck and we hope to see you and for all others have a good time!
