Deutsches Afrikakorps

Well, the local gamers have bitten the Bolt Action bug pretty hard, so I've decided to jump in. They are doing all of the typical late war cool tanks and equipment stuff, but I wanted to do something earlier in the War, so me and my buddy Chris decided to start with North Africa 1941-1943. He's doing 8th Army and I'm doing DAK. Another local guy has some Italians, so we should be able to run some decent games.

I like Bolt Action, but I've also picked up Chain of Command and would like to give those rules a try too. Here are some of my pictures. I still need some decals for the tanks and vehicles, and I need to hit everything with a matte finish still..... but at least you get the idea of what I'm working on for my first project of 2015.

The DAK deployed around a small village.


Recon moving out to scout ahead of the Panzer III's. I still need some decals for the vehicles.

Some of the Perry plastic infantry. I've painted one of two boxes so far.

The 88, with Perry metal crew.  I still need to buy the transport.

Another overview of the village.

A PAK and some machine guns hold the line on a ridge behind some barbed wire.


Another view of the village.

  6. Mate, who is in Australia, the Archeage Gold servers are in Russia and EU. Please tell me other game with "great netcode" wich allow you to play normal with 400 ping?This reminds me of the time when our community had BF servers. So many times there was people from US who joined there, and the servers was located in Stuttgart. So they play round or two on EU server (they have filters and know...or Cheap Archeage Gold dont know may be...where they join) and start to moan: This Buy Archeage Gold server is laggy! And so on...
