1 50mm washer, 3 models and 3 figs and too much time. Pity Heroics can be such a hit-miss affair, not 100% happy with these. It was nice to make these and to convert a regular one into an ammo carrier though, but the next time I will use the GHQ Hummels I have.

Meant as off table artillery support marker for Blitzkrieg Commander, only 1 base allowed per army so if I want to make a new one this will be sold someday Laughing

Enjoy.













And just to make sure you realize how small these really are, this would be about 30cm from your eyes to the model in real life....

Johan

Like that loads - perhaps I should revisit my 1/300th Hummel!

Cheers

Excellent work !!

Are supply pallets behind the Hummel scratchbuilt, or did you buy them? If so, where?

Thanks for your help.

Great work - even more so with H&R.

I assume the ammo vehicle is a mod - has just given me a great idea for the extra 3 GHQ ones that I have sitting around thanks to their 'brilliant' pack size policy - now I can have ammo support for my batteries.

The vignette is really well done.

Very inspiring diorama indeed!

That is the good thing about 6mm, you can do so much in such a small space:O)

Sheesh, I leave for a day and this is what I get! Very Happy

@bejart7092: Bought, but I have no idea where they came from as they where in a lot I bought from a retiring state side wargamer about 2 years ago. It only contained 2 big stacks (what u see) and about 5 3 box stacks. I Wish I knew who makes these, though they fit in very well with my ISM Opel Blitz supply trucks so I think they could possibly be from ISM. With ISM being out of business, not a great help though....

@rct75001:Yes, the gun was removed, a strip of plasticcard added and a cover tarp made of sigarette paper and woodglue. Easy, really, just like the real thing.

@Arvaker:You assume too much, young Padawan! They are just pieces of brown sprue covered with the same material I use for the hedges and bushes. The biggest of the trees is a branch of a railroadtree that had managed to get in between my foot and the floor some time ago. I saved the remains.

To the guys who like it: Thx!

Johan

Yes, I'm still learning. So, what material do you use for your bushes and hedges? Wink

Hehe, that would be shredded green foam in various green hues and Woodland scenics flock and turf.

Remember these?



Now and then I make a few more, just for fun and filler.
