A force put together for ‘One Hour Wargames’. Scales are really 1/144, 20mm, 1/76 and 1/72 plastic and metal from different makers. Including the infamous Airfix ‘wrong’ armoured car

An excellent display of modelling.15/07/2017 at 16:59 #67567
Replies appreciated comrades. Being more or less completely ignorant on the DAK, it came as a surprise to find out about the green uniforms. Seemed odd after doing Italians and Brits in sandy colours

Well done, they look fabulous. Very dry looking. 🙂15/07/2017 at 21:21 #67587
Thanks, I think they’re trying to find a bierkeller.

It may be ‘wrong’, but I used to love that armoured car when I was a kid…17/07/2017 at 22:51 #67744
I built a few of them meself in days of yore. If someone else produced its predecessor at the same price, I’d have bought it. Too late now my DAK days are over.

Inspiring. Great stuff. Love what you have done. Especially as it’s for OHW, WWII doesn’t seem to get much coverage using these rules. Are you using the rules “as is” from the book or di you have house rules?

Thanks for your kind comment.
So far the intention is to use the rules ‘as is’. However, some snags; the rules don’t support aircraft, armoured cars (and ones with A/T guns) or MGs. I’ll persist with it because I think aircraft need to be involved due to the prominent part they played in the conflict. I’ll look at how other rules cater for ‘cars and do an adaptation. The MGs are catered for in the WW1 rules so I’ll use that.
I’ve made a bit of a rod to beat my own back by sticking to actual rifle company structures, the 8th Army motor company especially with only two (at the time) rifle platoons and a scout platoon OHW four infantry units are a bit difficult.
However, onward and upward.
