    Some casualty / dead figures from Black Tree Design . You get 5 assorted metal figures of varying quality . Some are missing limbs ( miss casts maybe ? ) , which I replaced with spare Bolt Action plastic parts . Here’ my RussiansBTD Russian dead

    The German set had 2 which were really bad , so I tossed them .  The Medic and his patient are a couple of plastic BA kit bashes I did a while ago from left over body parts BTD German dead , BA Medic + casualty

    I’ve pretty much based all my figures with the same ground foam / grass mixture , which I’ve also covered a GW 2 foot base with , makes it nicer for photos, here’s an exampleIMG_20170729_110621

    Yay , the photo posting thingy seems to working again , that’s 3 out 3 . Thanks to the  guys slaving away in the office

    I thought this was going to be a thread on the Axis and Allies boardgame 😂

    But it’s also good as I just finished my first ever 28mm tank 😀

    No idea, what mark it is, but it’s the Warlord Resin version.

    Haven’t done much on Allied stuff lately , but have started a 234/3 kit bash using Warlord / Italeri’s plastic Puma and the 250/8 Expansion set from Rubicon . I had intended to add detail to the interior ( driver seats , steering wheels , fuel tank , etc ) but really you see very little  from a game  table view , and once I put a couple of crew in there , there’s no room for that stuff anyway F1J1

    Been a real PIA trying to get the angles of the upper hull armor right , this is my third attempt . Something about  rear panel is still looks a little odd to me  … maybe I’m just over thinking it

    Finally got around to finishing my 234/3 project . I added a couple of Rubicon figures with BA metal heads , some BA plastic German kit and a couple of resin ammo boxes LeftRight

    It was a fun and fairly easy kit bash using the Rubicon gun parts . Really didn’t need to add the bits I put in the interior ( drivers’s seats , ammo rack , transmission housing on floor ) as you can’t really see anything inside even with the crew removed .

    Finally got around to using the other 75mm gun from the Rubicon Expansion kit , here’s a 251D-9 . You get both the 251  C & D upper hull in the expansion kit with the gun mount replacing the co driver’s visor . I added a driver from Rubicon’s 250 kit , the gunner comes with the 75mm gun kit as does the ( headless !  ) loader  .251D-9251-9

    Rubicon’s half tracks come with both a full and half tarp roof cover , since I’ve used both already on 2 of my tracks , I cut this one back a bit ( razor saw & miter box ) just to look different and leave some space for the loader and maybe a commander figure.  I guess  should be called Axis & Axis as the other tank I finished is a Japanese Type 97 Chi – Ha . I built this as a scenery piece , so I depicted it as being knocked out with blown open transmission hatches and just the commander’s arm in view in the hatch . I still need to make a scenic base for it , but as my basing material has hardened in the package  ( note to self , double seal air dry clay ) it will have to wait for now . Probably end up giving this to a buddy who plays Japanese Type 97Type 97 front

    You can build either an early 57mm version or the later 47mm larger turreted version with revised upper hull from this kit , and no you can’t build both turrets  and swap the them around , you only get one commanders cupola , 2 of 3 needed machine guns and only one driver’s front plate . So much for my idea of a buried tank hull type pill box
