WWII NERD SHIT ALERT

Nerd alert! The shitty one-man mail order operation finally sent me my damn German dry transfers. For 8 bucks in shipping, you think they coulda gotten the three sheets of fucking paper across the USA in under three weeks. But well...yeah. So I spent the evening cursing my sausage-like fingers, lining up turret numbers, and rubbing Baltic Crosses on lil' vehicles. Looking now, I totally forgot to add the MG 42s onto the Hanomags. For scale purposes, the tiny dudes are glued onto pennies. Command Sdkfz 251/10 and Late War Panzergrenadier Platoon Command above.

Sdkfz 251/1 and Panzergrenadier Squad 1 with Panzerschreck above.

Sdkfz 251/1 and Panzergrenadier Squad 2.

Sdkfz 251/1 and Panzergrenadier Squad 3.

Hetzer Tank Destroyer and an Alt-WWII German Walking Tank type thing I bashed toghether from a Maschinen Krieger model and spare tank bits. I'd like to do a few more.

The title of the post is not "¡Achtung Nerdenwannen!"? FAIL!

Murph, I fully expect some video game/actual German translation on this shizzness.

Chris Horse said...

Nerd!

-jealous.

Beezer said...

Does Jess know about your freakish nerdness?

ty said...

Hey wait a minute...

I think you're pulling my leg there with that robot thing.

I know the Germans invented tons of stuff that we still use today, but I think you were wrong. That thing was clearly made by the Japs.

Duh

rick smith said...

Well Laura...if she didn't know by now there's really something wrong. Ty's like The King of Nerds.

Ty...you need to weather those AFVs! Then the decals will sit back a bit and be that much more rad.

Nice work. Nerd King.

Leftenant Cohen said...

20mm British thirst for German blood. Nice Jun-mans! Bring up the PIAT!

Murphy said...

more comments to follow (fear not Stu) however Cairo those are most crucial...I'm sitting at my desk singing right now:

Ack Ack Ack said...

That was like watching a menacing Lord of The Dance.

I'll get to weathering the decals Lobot. Jeeze...

rick smith said...

You better!

Wordo said...

Always a critique from that robot kid...

Your German nerd splendor caused me to shed a single tear for by boxed-away Canadians. Someday, eh!

Coordinating Cohen said...

Murph: Heh. Quint is dope in that flick. Still, it's no Zulu... or Shaolin Mantis!

Lobot: You should talk, waiting on those Ranger Class Starships for the gallery.

Speaking of nerdery, let's start getting a roll-call together for Gen Con 09 so I can start planning on reserving some rooms. E-mail me at the usual spot.

rick smith said...

Ahem...Curren...if I OWNED a model of the Ranger class, I'd post it.

Ty knows I'm just jabbin' at him. He likes to weather shit. It pleases him greatly. Just you watch...he'll post a new pic or 2 in no time flat.

rick smith said...

PS - Ty. I love you.

PPS - Nice photography by the way. New camera? Or just new lighting and backdrop?

Computational Cohen said...

"...if I OWNED a model of the Ranger class, I'd post it."

Yes Mr. Roboto, I know this. I know you're just funnin' the Eye-talian. Still this does not abate my desire to see a finely painted Ranger Class Starship in the gallery. Shall I have to purchase you one? Mayhap I should open the packaging too, so you don't have to bruise your delicate artist fingers? Hmmmmmm? **command line alpha - engage**

I almost forgot unrepentant face-folder.

There is no way Murphy=Tron, that is totally some Tron < Murphy as the power of Tron is infinite and beautiful.

Stuart Spengler said...

Actually replace that < with a >... (stupid comment box telling me my html tag is broken, YOUR tag is broken)

I CAN'T STOP LAUGHING AT THIS.

Murphy said...

Stu, for your reading pleasure my comments in Germany:

Oh mein! Sie sind alle Schmiere, besonders das Supernaziroboter deathmachine. Nicht mit Cohen' verwechselt werden; s-Nazitodesraubmaschine.

That is all for now...stay tuned for our next scheduled broadcast at 3am.

Stuart Spengler said...

Deathmachine? German rules.

Ack Ack Ack said...

I leave the internetz unattended for a 24 hour cycle and all heckola breaks loose.

I'm surprised half these goons replied to your request, former Ms. Mackitintherear.

And Ty should start using Chi-Ty or Blondie. I'm beginning to get confused as well!

TYTYTYTYTYYTYTYTYTYTY said...

How about you call yourself red hat instead!

I am no blondie.

No we fight to the death to settle this.
