KRADSCHÜTZEN MOTORCYCLE AND SIDECAR (1939-1942)

I bought this miniature before buying the germans army book and when i did i found out it was not in the army book…..luckily you can find rules for this awesome model in the additional units supplement from Warlord games.

For 40 points (regular) you have a fast moving unit with a MMG and recce. Really not bad!

Hopefully i will soon use this fantastic model in the near future. The paint job is not awesome but i am quite pleased with the result:

The Great Wargaming Survey

 

From one of the finest Wargames Magazine:

We are very curious people (probably in more senses of the word, but that doesn’t matter now). Mostly, we are curious about this hobby and the people in it. There is always much debate about the health of the hobby, the age of the average wargamer, which scale or size of miniature is better and endless other questions. Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy, being a team of intrepid people, decided to solve at least some of these debates by way of the Great Wargaming Survey. And YOU are cordially invited to take part.

Joking aside, this won’t take long (5-10 minutes), it’s entirely anonymous, it’s nothing every attempted on this scale and best of all, you’ll have a chance at winning some great prizes. What’s not to like? Just click here and spend a few happy minutes contemplating your favorite pastime.
