Circus Maximus in 1/72 Scale


Iván Cáceres, another of my regular wargame opponents (he thrashed me in a game on Saturday just gone by the way, damn him), is also an avid 1/72 scale fan.

He's been working on updating the old board-game "Circus Máximus" into a version using miniatures.

The miniatures were painted by Iván and also by Carlos de la Concha.

The new "board" needs a centre-structure and some statues, spectators etc., so more photos to follow sometime in the near future when the table's finished.

Pegasus 1/72 scale WWII Russian Naval Infantry

A picture of some the the superb new Pegasus 20mm scale WW2 Soviet sailors.

These were painted by a friend and fellow gamer, Carlos de la Concha, and were used in one of our wargaming club's recent Stalingrad type wargames.

Work in Progress - Matchbox M16 Half-Track

A couple of 1/76 scale M16 Half-tracks (w/50cal quad) under construction. This is the Matchbox-Revell re-release.

The tracks are far too fragile though. I'll have to try and find an alternative as these broke as soon as I tried to get them over the rear roller assembly.

Apart from the problem with the dodgy tracks, the kit looks as sharp in detail and as easy to put together as it ever was.
