Targe 2017

Well...what can we say a great show and we won best in show again... so we won the Targe two years in a row. Aparently with all the judges unanimous. Thanks to all the judges and all the supporters.


So heres some pics and chat...on how it went.



German officer leads the way in a 3d famo...
German convoy escapes (all 3d printed) as they move behind the large factory ...a Morser 18's towed by sdkfz 9 , Famo 's and captured Russian tractors (Voroshilovets and Komintern), sdffz 7, Steyr car and Maultier.


You can see the pak barn door in the above picture at the bottom guarding the level crossing. Factory chimineys need sweep ! LOL. The other thing to look at closely is the oil drums and street explosions which have broken cobblestones...(next to the long pipes). All of these are on clear bases to allow blending. See also table and chairs.

The 155mm SPG (another of our 3d prints) gets a target from the spotter and hits the german half track in the pic below...

A stug gets plastered by american indirect fire.

Americans move into position...
You can just spot a German observer in the tall factory...below.

A lot  going on...

A nice overhead plan...
German troops mass at the hedge for an attack. Despite the American   defense they get into the buildings ...

Fighting in this alley was fierce. ..the Stug gets hit also an american half track and a sherman in this tight alley.it went back and forth three times in here...

The houses have rubble blocks which can be removed to allow figures inside.


I like the smoke effect ...really enhances the game play.

Whole battle then just gets messy with americans pushing forward acoss the tracks trying to flank the pak in the top corner.

The factory has all the usual machines lathes , mills etc. All 3d prints. Workers have left...


Americans move slowly forward.

Lots  of american armour...but roads are packed with burning wrecks...getting through to the front is difficult...

Woaaaw the german defender's are starting to get outnumbered...

It was a great day.  With lots of interest in the 3d printed vehicles.... I think we will see a lot more prints from the other clubs in the future...
