Bag the Hun Soviets [4]

I've been doing some googling in the search for a historical background for my BTH 2 project this year, which is going to be set somewhere on the Russian Front c1942-43. I quite like the idea of a winter scheme for both the VVS and the Luftwaffe, so have been investigating various potential settings for the game.

The frontrunner at the moment is a series of scenarios based on the air campaign over the Demyansk Pocket, during which the besieged German forces were supplied by air. There are plenty of potential scenarios and lots of interesting aircraft to be painted up, with some famous units and not so famous aces on both sides.

I think I'll pick up a copy of the relevant Osprey Campaign series and see what I can do with it. I've already topped up the metal with a handful of planes in the Museum Miniatures sale to add to the existing collection. I could do with some Ju52' s though, so will have a look at what Scotia has to offer. 

It reminds me of Iron Annie from Warlord...classic stuff!


  1. If you are prepared to literally pay the price, GHQ's Ju 52's are PERFECT. I'm assembling three of them these days, and the ddetail is just amazing!


  2. Thanks Rolando,

    They are very good to look at but the price is way too steep!

    Good to hear from you again.

    Best Wishes
