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.

On the workbench

What I have on the workbench at the moment. Not quite sure when I'll get these onto a wargame table, but I have a vague idea in mind about doing some modern urban skirmish scenarios. The figures are Caesar and Revell.

Disposable Heroes Wargame - Brazo de Nelson Wargame Club


A game that we played this past Saturday in our usual scale (1/72). A rural battlefield crossed by a road was the scene for the confrontation between the German and British forces. While the Germans started the game with a Tiger tank, the British awaited their armored support turn after turn without success while trying to stay out of range of the Tiger Tank. Nothing the British could throw would have made a dent in the armor of the colossus that caused heavy casualties in the enemy infantry so the English tactic was to press the enemy infantry and half-tracks on the flanks. Eight turns of heart attack.
