I'm in the process of putting together one of those Eureka AA DShK right now, but wasn't aware that they were doing the older ground mount variant. I take it that's the Maxim gun looking thing to the left of the image? Its a shame perhaps that the more modern tripods aren't available, though I suppose they wouldn't be too difficult to scratch build. (As ever though, some non-Insurgent style crew would be appreciated as well for other settings, but well that's never going to happen).

Yeah, the ground mount is the Maxim-esque setup (complete with gun shield and spotter). It was one of the very latest releases from them (so new that you'll need to email Nic at Eureka directly to order it)

The AA DShKs are lovely models (especially if you have aircraft on the board) but they have a nasty habit of taking dives off the table and bending the barrel.

Today's post is up, taking a look at the latest release from Osprey. I've already written a fair chunk about technicals so covering a reference book for them is pretty much required writing.

Another nice quick read.

This week's Wargaming Week is now up - not a hugely exciting one but a few new things. Including that I'll be at Hammerhead this weekend!
