Post about wargaming convention "Tactica 2024" in Hamburg

Hi,

I did a mistake by setting the date of the original post about the wargaming convention "Tactica 2024" in Hamburg. I wanted to publish this post on March 2nd and have chosen the wrong date. So the post was published dated February 1st and I suggest that nobody will notice the post.

So if you are interested in the original post - here is a link to it:

And here is also a link to the website of "Tactica" itself:

JohnJenkinsDesign - "Battle of the Plains of Abraham"

Manufacturer:   JohnJenkinsDesigns

Scale:   60mm (1:30)


Hi,

just a short post about today´s arrival - some reinforcements for my collection of FIW-figures from JohnJenkinsDesign. I was lucky to win an auction on eBay for a very good price. 

These figures are from the range of  "Battle of the Plains of Abraham" and I love the style of uniforms. SevenYearsWar and FrenchIndianWar are my favorite interest.

I will always remember the date of this battle as the British climbed up the hills in the night of September 12th. That´s the birthday of my first daughter. The battle took place on September 13th.

And there is another date I will always remember, too. The date of the battle of Rossbach on November 5th.. This is the birthday of my second daughter.

For the ones who are interested in the "Battle of the Plains of Abraham" - just follow this link.

I am not an expert in tanks and so some photos or comments to the photos could be wrong. But I was really impressed to see such big war vehicles. The tank that impressed me most by his huge dimensions is the King Tiger. Never thought what a beast this was.
