Fences for my Rohan town

We've added barrels and crates to the fantasy town, what's next? A bit of fencing! Along with the barrels, I ordered the palisade fencing at Renedra.

Each bag comes with two sprues, with 4 piece of fence and 5 posts. They are 5 GBP per double-pack of sprues.

Titans, pirates and the weekend

Busy week - published my review on the Nemesis Warbringer kit yesterday and completed the pictures for the upcoming review on the Manufactorum Imperialis terrain kit for Adeptus Titanicus.

Adeptus Titanicus – Nemesis Warbringer Titan with Quake Cannon

Quite the eventful month for Adeptus Titanicus. Games Workshop released a new supplement, Shadow and Iron, along with a newly arranged starter kit for the game itself. But among the novelties are beside a Psi-Titan the Nemesis Warbringer Titan with Quake Cannon in AT-scale.

With the Nemesis Warbringer the role of a dedicated Titan Hunter was introduced to the lore of Warhammer 40.000 recently. The pattern was first shown by Forge World in 2018 and has no direct predecessor in the older lore. Yet, the Warbringer is described as being in service during the Great Crusade and fought against Titan-sized Xenos constructs and later on during the Horus Heresy.

Adding bits and items to the Rohan settlement

We continue to add matching bits and kits to the Rohan settlement, after looking into the outbuildings by Renedra, a few goods and trade items would be an interesting idea to follow up.

Renedra - Barrels and Fence

As the Rohan House comes with barrels, a few more of these came to mind - and Renedra has that covered as well. They come in two different sizes, can be bought separated by size or in mixed sets. They are casted in brown plastic, so if you're a bit lazy, simply giving them a drybrush and wash would get you something ready-to-play. A mixed set of 5 large and 5 small barrels will cost you around 3,50 GBP.

The Rohan settlement grows even further

One of the first kits that came to my mind to extend the settlement were the outhouses by Renedra.

Renedra - Outbuildings

The outhouses / outbuildings are available in multiple variants, like wattle/daub, timber and stone. I wanted to show you the wattle and timber one, but had a mix-up in the other, so the wattle/timber will take its place.

Urban planning, Afrikakorps motor pool and the weekend

The Rohan articles got a lot of feedback, and I am pretty amazed by the kits (the houses are great and I just ordered a second palisade kit), so that topic will be further continued / developed.

I have some generic terrain items in my collection, that can be used for almost everything, like boxes and crates. Along with the Renedra kits that I bought, I did a bit of scenes to see how they scale and work with eachother. I guess I have to paint those up fast and take some scenic pictures with Dino's Sword & Sorcery Frostgrave warband. But I'll go into detail on the kits that were used and how they fit in the separate posts.

SdKfz 6/3 Diana for the Afrikakorps – but how?

As if the decision about the Sd.Kfz. 7 wasn't hard enough, a few weeks ago I found this one, the Sd.Kfz. 6/3 Diana. It is based upon the Sd.Kfz. 6, which is basically a lighter predecessor of the Sd.Kfz. 7 "only" being able to tow 5t instead of 8t. It was fitted with captured Soviet 76-mm divisional guns model 1936 (F-22) and an armoured superstructure was build around it.

The Sd.Kfz. 6 is not available in 28mm, the Diana can only be bought as model kits or 15mm, but it was in service in the Afrikakorps. So it would fit in the project and would be another great field conversion and outstanding rarety. Yet, how to approach this project?

SdKfz 7 for the Afrikakorps – but which variant?

Didn't we need a tow for the 8,8 cm FlaK? Here it is! The mighty Sd.Kfz. 7, or Sonder-Kraftfahrzeug 7 − Mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 8t (German for medium towing motor vehicle 8t) as the full name of this interesting vehicle was. So far, there are a couple of resin kits on the market, and then Rubicon came along with a plastic kit.

Rubicon Models - SdKfz 7 Mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 8 t

The Rubicon kit comes with a few variants incl., it can be build open or closed, so covers a tarpaulin for the back seats, or can be build with a flat bed to cover the Sd.Kfz. 7/1 and 7/2 variants, sporting different FlaK guns on the back.

8,8 cm FlaK 37 for the Afrikakorps

I already have an 8,8 FlaK, the kit by Warlord Games / Italeri, and the Blitzkrieg one, but as I wanted a mounted one, that could be towed, I looked into the Rubicon kit as well (and because my Afrikakorps almost exclusively uses Rubicon kits for vehicles).

Skype Sessions, Nuremberg and the weekend

The intention to meet up (virtually) for a painting session did work quite well this week, with 6 participants in total.

Skype - Malkränzchen

As we're not living close to each other, but spread all over the country, a virtual meet up is a welcome solution. Even if we were closer, due to many of being dads, we're more flexible this way to take a break or so. We did use Skype, but other options would be Discord or Facetime (if you're a pure apple crowd).
