  1. Heh... I don't think I'm eligible... 😉
  2. So I got the new Ferdinand boxed set today. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was a totally new master for both the resin hull and the tracks. So how does it stack up to the old GE131 blister? Better in some ways, a lot better in a lot of ways, and worse in a few key ways... read on! https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2019/01/battlefronts-new-ferdinand-design-study.html In this particular blog entry I go through the new and old Battlefront Ferdinand miniatures with my rivet counting hat firmly on. I go through all of the angles and capture what's good, bad, and ugly about each version of the miniature as compared to the real thing.
  3. I may actually be able to make this one. Will likely bring my Kursk infantry with 656 Schwere Panzerjager support...
  4. You had to know this was coming... So let's discuss the elephant in the room... before it was called the Elefant... and while we're at it we can cover its little friends as well. 😄 https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2019/01/modeling-schweres-panzerjager-regiment.html Yes, I'm back at it with my favorite unit. A few spoilers: Corrected Ferdinands: Updated StuG III More fun than you can shake a Panzerknacker at!

    My New Armageddon Pattern Basilisk

    The normal Basilisk may have some really TALL crewmen... 😉 That being said, it's 40K - everything is designed to look "cool" by some definition in the Games Workshop Codex of Cool...

    Thanks much - the outside weathering got lost a bit in the lighting. Right now it's modulation, oil wash, and blacklining. I'll be adding a little more once I get a few vehicles to work on.

    I'm more interested in what CALENDAR they're using for the "2019" date...
  8. Hey all - I'm actually finally getting around to working on a Death Korps of Krieg army, and one of my support vehicles is an Armageddon Pattern Basilisk. I've been posting the progress down in the Artificiers Forge board, but I'd figured I'd post the "finished for now" photos here as well. I will likely go back and add some additional weathering when a few more vehicles are completed so I can keep the weathering consistent, but it's ready for the table! Full photo-set at the link below, but I've attached a few good high-resolution photos to this post to give you an idea of the final product! https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/11/armageddon-pattern-basilisk-done.html

    😁 I'm sure I can fix it with just a few more details...

    My Armageddon Pattern Basilisk is effectively done at this point. I will likely go back and add some additional weathering when a few more vehicles are completed so I can keep the weathering consistent, but it's ready for the table!

    Some quick updates. I've finished the exterior base coats and the custom decals based on World War I German examples (yes, that's I, not II). Paint scheme is taken from an A7V as well... at least the colors. More at the blog: https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/11/warhammer-40k-armageddon-pattern.html
  12. I'm working on a Death Korps list and one of the vehicles I'm starting with is the Armageddon Pattern Basilisk. As with most Forge World stuff, if you aren't an experienced model builder, it likely isn't for you. The resin fighting compartment needed a little attention: ... or maybe a lot of attention... However, with a little work I was able to get the warpage under control (hot water is your friend!). I'm painting the inside of this beast late World War II German (RAL 8012 primer for the floor and RAL 9001 Cremeweiß for the rest). The sub-floor has a lot of detail, but unfortunately it gets hidden under the floor. I'm using Ammo of Mig paints and washes for the most part, with a few Alclad 2 metallics and AK chipping color applied with a sponge. It's coming out okay so far... Next steps are to start working on the outside as it will be easier to paint (and mask the completed interior) with the gun uninstalled. Plan is to leave the top removable to show off the insides... Lots more detail on my blog: https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/10/warhammer-40k-armageddon-pattern.html
  13. Might be enough to actually bring some panzers *with* support... 😉
