More SciFi - Oldhammer Delaque for Necromunda
First of all I do have to apologize to all of you on whose blogs I've failed to comment. For once it's not due to me being a lazy sod, I swear. For weeks now I've been having issues with blogger on my Apple devices. On some blogs my comments simply disappear. I've not quite worked out why, but it seems rather consistent. There are blogs I do have absolutely zero issues with commenting on and then there are those where my comments vanish into thin air... until very recently I thought it had to do with comment moderation and that my comments needed to be moderated first. But alas, no such thing. I'll of course try to work out the issue, but till then all I can do is to apologize to you for not commenting.
With that out of the way, now onto the main reason for this post:
Following on from last weeks Eldar today it's the turn of a few classic Delaque miniatures to have their place in the lime light. Back when Necromunda was first released I always had an eye on the game, but being young and broke meant I never got into it. Looking back it'd probably have made more sense to collect one or two gangs of Necromunda instead of trying (and of course failing) to collect an Imperial Guard army with the meagre means at my disposal. Oh well, the folly of youth...

Once in a blue moon I feel like doing some Sci-Fi stuff, preferably set in GW's Warhammer 40k universe. Even if the chance of me playing one of their rulesets is impossibly remote, I still am quite a fan of the setting. Or at least of the setting as it was about 10 years ago... but that's probably due to me slowly but steadily becoming old and grumpy.

Waffen-SS Eichentarn Winter Colour Guide
Well, OK. I've promised to write this Colour Guide for way too lang already. And in actual fact I already posted it on Twitter way back, but as that's not really the most well suited platform for such a thing, I thought I should finally get my finger out and post it over here as well. For posterity so to speak ;-)

[20mm] Airborne Jeep with German & British Crew
As some of you may be aware, my good friend Curt of analogue-hobbies.blogspot.com fame and I have a miniature exchange ongoing. Not sure for how long but by now a fair few figures have crossed the Atlantic either way to find residence on another continent. For this years figure I was at first at a loss as what to paint, when Curt made a fleeting remark about wanting to do a force for OP Market Garden at some point. And there it was my inspiration.

[20mm] 3rd German Squad and some support
Again some time has passed by since my last post. And actuallyI got some more reinforcements for my Germans done. As before these are from the superb range of 20mm WW2 figures by AB Figures.

[20mm] 2nd German Squad
Apologies my friends as I've been AWOL (again) for a while. Nothing too serious, but life has a habit of getting a little hectic at times. Also I have to admit I've simply not felt like taking pictures of my progress. It's so much easier taking a snap shot with your mobile phone and posting it to your social media of choice, than investing the time in setting up your 'proper' camera equipment. Make of that what you will, but I hope to get some more stuff posted again over the coming weeks.

[20mm] Soviet ZIS-3 AT gun and medics
Well, usually I feel somewhat exhausted after the three months of AHPC but not this year apparently. I'm still on fire and chomping at the bit to crack on with my foray into the world of 20mm wargaming. Thus this the Vaccination Challenge mate Curt has currently declared over on the corresponding blog should be just the ticket to keep me focused. If you fancy a bit of good humoured banter and need some incentive to get the finger out in these troubled times, why not simply join in in the fun?

WW2 Soviets in 20mm (Dohh!)
A new scale Hurrah! It's not like I've already got a good collection of 28mm and a somewhat smaller one of 15mm for WW2. No, I've had to branch out into 20mm as well it seems.

British Intelligence Officer
Another chamber that took some heavy head scratching. I mean, like many of you I do have a few Fantasy figures flying about the place which would have fit the bill. But I'm not a Fantasy gamer and only once in a blue moon actually fancy the idea of painting anything Fantasy. Thus I was on the verge of skipping this chamber...

Para Support Choices
06 January 2021
As some of you fine folk may know I'm eagerly (ah, well more like glacial-ish) painting away on a 28mm Para force for gaming Operation Market Garden since... ahem... since AHPC VI, so 2014 actually. Now I bet that wouldn't strike even the slowest painter amongst us as particular ambitioned, or indeed eager, and rightly so. Having painted a playable SS force as opponents over the course of that (wretched) last year I decided I better get my finger out and finish those Paras.

Schaeffer's last Chancers - Reunited at last
Having painted Scope for my last entry for AHPC XI I thought I might just as well crack on and finish the remaining five Chancers. So after almost five years they're finally reunited.
