My Fav, tabletop gaming is Flames of War, Pulp Fiction, and War at sea, AT-43 and Im a big terrain making fan. and of course Model Railroading...

We also plan and run gaming events and will post picture's of that as well .

After reading the comic "Lost Squad" I wanted to paint and model them in 28mm for some pulp fiction gaming.Ive picked some figures from Artizan design and Bolt action and have started painting them up.Some bad guys and scenery will follow.Ive also asked some talented friends to join me so any thing about painting figures and modeling is welcome here.

First pictures of Layout construction

Same view but without bay & Submarine from prev. picture/blog

Here is the table that was taken out...the u-boat and scenery will be recycled into the new layout

focusing on the Island of Sylt that was connected by a man made cause way called the Hindenburgdamm. On the Island of Sylt there was a narrow gauge railway that also serviced the military am planning on a small midget submarine (seehunds) base with torpedoes and supplies brought in by the main railway then transferred to the narrow line to service the army base.
The other end of layout will be the city of Hamburg Germany with a grand station and glass canopy train shed for passenger service. Freight and passenger service will be the focus on this layout during war time operations in what euro modelers refer to as "era II modeling" plans also include a waybill system for fun operating sessions for 1 to 4 people. and if time permits a trolly system in the city.
Most of the carpentry is just about done (thank goodness) soon Ill get to laying track installing turn outs and ballasting. then some scenery and backdrop painting. the fun stuff .
