WW2 History book with 1/72 scale pictures by Mark Thomas

Mark Thomas, a veteran 20mm gamer and modeler from Oregon (US) told me some time ago that he was working on a history book illustrating scenes and information related to some of the most important battles of WW2 using 1/72 scale models, figures and scenery.

The book should now be finished maybe sometime late this year and he has some sample pictures from his book on the web, some of which can be seen below :

POLAND



FINLAND



NORTH AFRICA





You can read some sample excerpts and see some more pictures from Mark's forthcoming book as posted by veteran 1/72 scale gamer and modeler David Reasoner on the Command Decision Test of Battle Forum on the following links

WW2 US & Japanese Pacific Wargame Units by Dave Hall (USA)


I was sent these photos to add to the blog by Dave Hall from the States.

Dave based these troops for his own rules, which he will be publishing in a book he's writing on World War Two in the very near future.

The shots are of a platoon of US Marines, both ESCI and Revell, while the Japanese are from Waterloo 1815 and ESCI.















Fujimi Normandy Tiger I



I "inherited" this tank, along with quite a few other 20mm gems, from a member of our wargame club, Alberto Beneitez, when he moved away a couple of years back.


It's a Fujimi 1/76 kit and has made a few appearances in various games, and in its day it valiently played the part of Michael Wittman, merrily blasting holes in the British 7th Armoured Division's tanks.
