|The fabled StuG with the graphite Geboren Um Zu Toten|
translated as "Born To Kill"
I thought I would have a bit of fun with my graffitied stug, it also happened to be the first one I painted. I looked at about four different translators to try and get the most accurate translation. I ended up using this website http://imtranslator.net/compare/ which compared four of the most common translators so I could pick the most common translation. Every translator except babylon had Geboren Um Zu Toten.
You may have also noted, if you have been following the blog that these stugs have seen some action, not quite completed. Check out the session reports here and here.
I think I overdid the camo on top of the tanks, not leaving enough khaki brown to brave the world. I also did the same cargo on two of the tanks... oops. I think when I get some more tanks to paint up I will try out some different camo patterns and techniques. I used the stippling technique for these tanks.
|Same baggage, at least they are painted slightly different.|

So there you go, the StuG Gs from the Open Fire box set. Pretty neat!
In other news, I was away in Napier over the weekend and scored Star Wars Guess Who! OK its not that exciting and doesn't warrant its own post so I have tacked it on this one. However I think it will be a bit of fun to play with some younger gamers... Err quite young as I think, as much as I enjoyed Guess Who, I grew out of it around 8-10 and Risk became a fast favourite. Here is a shot of one of the boards:
|Pity its has the new trilogy characters, especially Jar Jar Binks *shudder*,|
although Natalie Portman is hot ;)
(I had a high school crush on her, mainly because of Garden State)
