Targe 2017

Well...what can we say a great show and we won best in show again... so we won the Targe two years in a row. Aparently with all the judges unanimous. Thanks to all the judges and all the supporters.


So heres some pics and chat...on how it went.



German officer leads the way.
German convoy escapes (all 3d printed) as they move behind the large factory ...a Morser 18's towed by sdkfz 9 , Famo 's and captured Russian tractors (Voroshilovets and Komintern), sdffz 7, Steyr car and Maultier.


You can see the pak barn door in the above picture at the bottom guarding the level crossing. Factory chimineys need sweep ! LOL.

The 155mm SPG (another of our 3d prints) gets a target from the spotter and hits the german half track in the pic below...

A stug gets plastered by american indirect fire.

Americans move into position...


A lot  going on...

A nice overhead plan...
German troops mass at the hedge for an attack. Despite the American   defense they get into the buildings ...

Fighting in this alley was fierce. ..the Stug gets hit also an american half track and a sherman in this tight alley.it went back and forth three times in here...

I like the smoke effect ...really enhances the game play.

Whole battle then just gets messy with americans pushing forward acoss the tracks trying to flank the pak in the top corner.

The factory has all the usual machines lathes , mills etc. All 3d prints. Workers have left...


Americans move slowly forward.

Lots  of american armour...but roads are packed with burning wrecks...getting through to the front is difficult...

Woaaaw the german defender's are starting to get outnumbered...

It was a great day.  With lots of interest in the 3d printed vehicles.... I think we will see a lot more prints from the other clubs in the future...

Essen - Carronade 2017 Part 2

There are loads of photo's because well ...I couldn't pick the best...LOL
Enjoy...and a short video.
This is our runner up trophy (and Pak44)...and the photos below are how we did it...


This corner ruin (pictured  above) is all scratch built to fit the shape of the other Sarrisa Precision houses. Wallpaper, chairs etc. are added for detail.
The ruins inside the large tenements are blue foam covered in sand and mdf. These are not fixed to allow removal for figure placement. Even the bought mdf houses needed to be engraved with bricks at the exploded sections and the pavements added (engraved foam board).
 Our large Krupp factory in the centre above pic.

 Americans move forward slowly.
 Some get hit by mortar fire.

Germans move across the track.
 American mortars fire back a PzG's on the track.
 A rail crossing is the point to cross, Germans rush to prepared defenses.
Chimneys (pipes and brick paper scaled to 28mm) were added for height accuracy to the industrial buildings. The chimneys  were stabilized with custom built weighted holders.

GI,s  stick close to the walls...
 A PAK 44 is waiting...
 3D printed by Paul (see pak 44 post earlier)
 A good overhead shot of the board.
The motor takes out more GIs.

 Germans again push forward across the tracks. The Sarrisa coach and track is mdf.
 Panther stops a half track... without using the brakes ! LOL
GI's set up a motor and unleash on the enemy.
 Re-enforcements push towards the crossing.


 Bang ! Bang Bang... Guys in green are taking a few hits...
Panther takes control...and dice rolls for the US are not good.

 Some body get that panther.
 The GI thinks about going down the street...

Picture below... Yes...a hit on the panther.
 Anyone got a bazooka handy to finish them off.
US armour get ready for final push.


 Awe no... big cats on the prowl.




Is that a panzerfaust in that signal box!

 More GI's appear.
Tables and chairs add detail to the ruined houses.
 Armour uses the buildings as cover.


I liked the vintage posters...
 and a trophy is gained.
