And a new one: a Hungarian pilot, I will use him as a downed pilot to rescue. In the battle of Ilovskoye even the pilots fought on the ground though.

Some civilians: railway workers. Figures by Preiser, not too good quality, but the colour scheme sells them.

I made new holding boxes for the figures, so I managed to take a photo from all of them together. A perfect closing for the year :)

Yep, it is not just ww2 Germans any more :) What I still miss is plastic infantry kits for Hungary (at least the Hungarian tanks and tankers are available in plastic) and the Balkans nations.

I started to take a look into my box of old Germans.
For some I decided they just need a new base, so I quickly rebased them:


For some I will need some repainting:


And there are a couple dozen I will rebuild to a degree. Mostly with new equipment and heads. We will see.

Never considered 1/35th scale for WW2 but I can see the attraction for skirmishes in the larger scale.

Loving the new additions and likewise inspired to try 1/35 for games. I have started by building a Panzer II for North Africa.

Thanks, guys!
As you see, they are on 30mm base, so basically you can do anything with them you do with 28mm ones.

I also have some vehicles for them, older models renovated to some degree.




Also this 1/72 Fw-190D.

They look great. You can obviously do much more detailed work on a 1/35 scale figure that you can on a 28mm.

Yes, 28mm is maybe the best compromise between army size and model detail, but 1/35 is the scale where you can represent all the personal equipment without simplification or abstraction.
