New Year, New Blog

Hi there!

Happy New Year!

I've been away from blogging for some time but I'll try it again, only at a new "place". So, if you're interested, from now on I'll be posting at and this blog will be closed in a few days.

My own A7V

A little tank I had around for about 3 years, and finally decided to give it a proper paint job. At least I tried.

It's a Wargames South (now Arrowhead Miniatures) 1/144 metal A7V.

Wargame on the way?

My friend Rui Sena from Tempos Medievais has a online poll running - he wants to know which of the following subjects would you like to play:

- WWI Battle of Mozambique (1916 Portuguese/British forces vs German force)
- WWII Battle of France (May 1940)
- WWII Battle of Normandy (D-DAY only)
- WWII (6 June to 22 August)

The Lone Ranger

1/72 scale figures, a Waterloo 1815 Apache and an Airfix Cowboy (merci, Pascal), finally over!

 And a final picture. A small round base with a printed scenario glued to it.

Napoleonic fort/Linhas de Torres - WIP


While the painting is going slow, one of the current projects - a small fort in Linhas de Torres - is taking its shape.

The base for the terrain is almost ready and the figures arrived yesterday.

Usually I don't post the figures at this stage, but these are different (to me). 2 naval gun crews from Warmodelling Miniatures. Scale? 18mm! The fort is supposed to be 1/72, so I may have to make a few more cuts...

 I may have to get a few more figures and these look so fine! (Yes, some forts were equipped by naval guns and crews.) I'll call my friend Rui from Tempos Medievais and order it for me!

A base para o forte n.º 19 - Ajuda Pequeno - toma forma. É necessário aumentar o nível do terreno do lado de fora e "escavar" o interior do forte. Depois começam os detalhes!
Embora esteja pensado para a escala 1/72, acabei por encomendar estas figuras a 18 mm através da Tempos Medievais. Excelente negócio! Acho que ainda vou encomendar os oficiais... É que sendo um forte, alguns teriam peças e elementos dos navios britânicos!

Dragon Slayer

This was built for a GB on a Portuguese forum and I had the idea for it when I saw the dragon in a Chinese store. Well, my son saw it first... I had to fight for it! No, not really. I had to buy 2... :)

The slayer is a 1/72 Zvezda's English Knights of the 100 Years War.

Final pictures
