Christmas Dinner Beef Wellington

How do introduce this article? Some of the regulars may be aware of the food and cooking content on here, (like last christmas' Pulled Turkey, or home made fried chicken) and I stumbled across a recipe from Spiegel Online (yeah, a bit weird, but hey you're on a Wargaming Blog reading about food, so don't judge me) on Veggie Christmas Dinner. I liked the idea of the puff pastry dish and talked with my mom about a potential christmas dinner (and she suggested Pork Wellington). So with Wellington although being the capital of New Zealand, and reminding me of my trip in the late summer, I was ready to go.

Wellington Great War Exhibition Part 1

One of the stops that I was most eager to visit, was the Great War Exhibition in Wellington. It marked more or less the last stop on our trip around the north island, before we went for further two and half weeks on the south island. But let me tell you why I was so excited to go there. The GWE is home to an large diorama that was created in cooperation with Perry Miniatures and the New Zealand wargaming scene. And were not talking about some 4 by 8 ft table, but something far bigger.

Wellington Great War Exhibition Part 2

The Great Hall of the GWE ends in a hallway, leading on one way towards the cafe and shop, and on the other end towards the ANZ room.

After the hard focus on the western front, the hallway moves over to the New Zealand part of the ANZAC. Explaining which parts of the country raised what regiments, numbers and where they were shipped to. Colourised images of the mustering troops, the gear and so on.

Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, is home to many cultural sites, among them Te Papa Tongarewa, the National Museum of New Zealand. The name means "the place of treasures of this land" and covers many different exhibitions, about the history, the animals and plants of this country, as well as a current exhibition about Gallipoli, that was done in cooperation with Weta Workshop. The exhibition is not the be confused with the Great War Exhibition in the anzac park, that will be covered soon here as well.

The Papa is a large building in the harbour area of Wellington and covers several free exhibitions. This exhibition will be shown between April 2015 until April 2019.

Annual Review of 2017, Preview of 2018

Wow, another year passed and what a year it was. Almost 60 updates on here, available in both English and German. A busy year for me and my family, both personal and hobby-wise. A lot of things happened. I got engaged early this year, went to New Zealand for a month in late summer and got married two month ago.

So what went on on here, at, on and in the Chaosbunker. It was again very focused on reviews and Bolt Action, and I'm looking forward to open up on that in the upcoming year.

New Zealand / Aotearoa 2017

You might be wondering, why it was so quiet in July on Chaosbunker. The ones following me on facebook, might have seen it - I was in New Zealand / Aotearoa for a month.
