I found an abandoned project while searching through a cupboard for something else, thought it might be nice to share it. Who knows, it may even inspire me to complete it to the point where I can play a game.
I can’t remember who made the figures, and Google hasn’t helped me remember, but I have a load of them unpainted.
This is everything I completed before I got distracted on to something else. The squares are 4″.
I have Soviet worms with SMGs too, just never painted any.
The Germans have Rifle and SMG, there is also a Panzerfaust figure which I intended to modify into crew figures for anti tank guns. Because Panzerfausts in Wormingrad would be totally unrealistic, they didn’t have them in 1942…
I seem to recall getting stuck deciding what to do about vehicles, I wanted PzIIIs, StugIIIs and T34s. That’s probably why it got set aside as a project. One to return to do you think?02/11/2017 at 21:59 #75481
Too good !03/11/2017 at 00:22 #75498
You are so talented!03/11/2017 at 00:27 #75499
I tracked down the manufacturer, Ironclad Miniatures. 🙂
They do British and Americans too, but I shall set aside the temptation till I get these little darlings finished and into a game. 🙂04/11/2017 at 13:31 #75578
This is fun. What do worm tanks look like?04/11/2017 at 15:25 #75585
Excellent post Victoria, thanks for sharing. Is your next battle weevilgrad?04/11/2017 at 21:20 #75608
Worm tanks look like WWII tanks, only different. :p
(By which I mean my scratch building abilities don’t match my ambitions where the vehicles are concerned, so it’s time to convert proper models.)
Not sure what crazy idea I’ll come up with next, probably not weevils though, weevils are nowhere near as cute as worms. 🙂05/11/2017 at 14:50 #75646
A couple of cut down sort-of-StuGIIIs.
More pics and some waffle on the blog. 🙂06/11/2017 at 17:05 #75741
I’ve checked with Ironclad Miniatures, I can order non-standard packs with whatever mix of figures I want in them, I think I have just mentally committed myself to my next big project.
I’m aiming long term, I’ll continue with my other projects too, but as a challenge to myself I’m going try to have at least one new thing completed each week, be it figures, terrain tiles or vehicles.12/11/2017 at 16:35 #7607912/11/2017 at 20:24 #76099
World War Two worms? I mean that’s just silly!
Omigod! Omigod! Omigod! I LOVE IT! 🙂 🙂 😀

I just noticed the makers of the figures have a 20% off sale at the moment, so the first order for reinforcements has been made.12/11/2017 at 23:02 #76106
Oh cool! I just noticed the Stugs. LOL. But seriously, good chopping job. I had to trash a Mirage Panzer IV after I screwed up a 2mm chop.13/11/2017 at 08:28 #76115
Too cool, worm war 2 🙂

Tanks for the Russians. 🙂
I also settled on squad size for the game, four figure squads which will be part of a 13 figure platoon (three squads plus officer).19/11/2017 at 20:40 #76577
Excellent! and surprising miniatures! Superb!
…Um, it reminds me a story about my grandmother, that she told me sometimes; in an English lesson when she was at school (that was in the 1920’s in Brittany, France!) they had to copy a text that the teacher told them, and there was something about “closing the door for the warmth to stay in” or whatever; and my grandmother (then in her teens) didn’t understand what it meant and she wrote “worms” instead of “warmth”.
Please close the door and keep these worms in… 🙂

Very little hobby time at the moment, but I managed to complete my weekly Wormingrad task.
A platoon of SMG armed Soviet worms. 🙂03/12/2017 at 19:25 #77727
Panzer IIIs this time. 🙂10/12/2017 at 21:38 #7852410/12/2017 at 21:53 #78526
Looks wormy!10/12/2017 at 22:38 #78530
I made an instant connection with the ‘Worms’ console game, which has given me a massive amount of hours of pleasure and laughs. The little Uh Oh sound they make when they throw a grenade and it rolls back on themselves – utterly charming.

Those tanks are fantastic. Cutting them down like that is inspired. It really makes them fit in with the theme.
