Stalin's Europe Panthers!

So I've been doing a lot of secret squirrel painting for work, which as been dominating my hobby time lately. The unfortunate side effect is that I haven't had much to show off or write about lately. However, I found a moment in the schedule to crack out a company that I've been wanting to do for many years, ever since the original Ostfront: a Pantherkompanie!

Its no real secret that the Haught men are obsessed with aviation. So when Wings Of War exploded on the scene it was not surprising that it would be a hit with the guys of the family. Dad and my brother Andrew have been playing pretty full on and have even taken measures to up the ante!

Dad, ever the modeller, decided to make his own scale dirigibles for the game. Using a poster mailer, balsa wood stringers, and tissue paper, he has completed two zepplins, one German and one British. He sent me these photos yesterday once they were all finished. He's included some Wings Of War planes in the pictures for scale (1/144th). Anyway, I thought they were amazing and had to share them!

MWGT Part 2

Writer's Note: Blogger has been acting up so it's taken me a while to get this portion posted, so some of the text may be a little dated.

Day two of the MWGT  finished up this afternoon. We had a Bye for the fourth game, allowing me to just take photos and watch, which was precisely what I needed.

The first order of business for me this morning was to judge painting, which gave me a chance to snap a shot of the armies. I apologize if I missed any and for crappy photos!
