Sooo silent....

Well I have been a bit absent from the hobby comunity for some time.The question is why?Well my other great love (wife???) eeerrrmmm no the other other which is my favourite soccer team ( we call it Fußball - football) is going though a very hard time. Although we played a quite good season in the middle filed of the second league. The German Football Ass. did not give u the permission to play there next season because of some really strange reasons. So the last days it was standing with the other at stadium ( 10 mins walk) and show stripes ( we are called the Zebras) for our club. Many supporters of the other clubs from the Ruhr area were there with us. It is wonderful to stand together with all of them even though they are the "enemies on the field" the next time. And everybody is chanting some little tunes about the others just to make sure they do not win.
A bit like "enemies on the field - united in believe" - sorry dfor my bad english today. Some beers too much.

Maybe the next days I can post some new pics from the projects I am working on ( o.k. just a bit work and do not drink and paint ;-> )
Or it ends like this:

my club and my love ( the other other one) do not tell my wife she is soo eerrmmmm you know

FIGZ show in Arnhem Netherlands

Last sunday my clubmates and I were off to the FIGZ show again. It is always a pleasure to go there and having fun. The show specialises in 20mm but is also open for 15 or 28mm or whatever is loved.
For those who did not know the show is totally free to attend. It is like a big family meeting with Papa Remco and brother Benno. Ohh and there is also Uncles Peter and Paul and Grandpa Martin.
The others did also come over....too many to mention them all but some really illustrious guests like Old Wolf and the mysterious Zed1... So here are the first bunch of pics....have fun.

One of two rooms. This one is with traders and Wargaming Clubs.
Setting up our Bolt Action game....and of course 20mm models. The table is just 1 square meter but offers lot of space for a good 600 pts game.

Setting up Game 2. Wings of war / Wings of Glory. This is a purly fun game and always attracts lots of people attending. Mostly dads with their toddlers. Well the Hobby needs new blood...or in this case some new Rickenbacker's or Von Richthofen's.

More Bolt Action game pics. Yepp these are all 20mm plastics....Uhhh these nice old days when we were slighly younger crwling the floor with old Airfix and Esci troopers.

In game pics... Wings of War/Glory...The models are by Skytrex and some from the Original game.
Armoured cars by Pendraken.
