WWII Locomotives & War Series nº 71 - by Carlos Briz

Miniatures - Wargames-South
(Class BR E 94 locomotive - German State Railways)

Ok guys, this is a "drool-napkin-guaranteed-kind-of-dio"!

This time we have a urban war scenario, coupled with a lot of WWII British army hardware.

Check out how a bombed-out German building, with a locomotive inside it, looks like.

Maybe that artillery piece over there had a saying in the making-off of all this rubble...

CB: are you sick or something?

You must be, otherwise how can a guy cannot understand the reason why you send us only ONE dio each week!

WWII Locomotives & War nº 70 - by Carlos Briz

Pithead Miniatures
 (Class E 18 locomotive - German State Railways)

CB is at it again!

This time he brings us a dio related to that wonderfull disaster that was the Operation Market Garden, during  the month of September of 1944.

In my book, this operation was a clear and very personal victory for the Red Devils, since these guys stood their ground alone, at the far end of the business end of the allied advance, and held against overwhelming odds (i.e. German tanks, artillery and so on...) armed only with light weapons.

Waho Mohammed!

While checking out this dio a guy can almost hear the Red Devils war cry!

What an awsome perspetive and placement of figures and materiel.

Gimme more CB!

WWI Locomotives & War Series - by Carlos Briz

(Petrol tractor 20 Hp - British War Department Light Railway)

JF is always the same lazy dude!

This guy has several pics sent by CB in his mail box for days now, but is always delaying placing them in the blog for publication, and by doing this he is seriously limiting our followers right to check them out as soon as possible.

If I were you, I would complain about that...

Here we are, back to WWI and an ammo and fuel dump, organized by the British.

No horses in this dio, only horse power!

This is another very nice dio CB!

Orange Scenics Artwork (15 mm cardboard buildings) - by Mário Laranja

Here he is again!

ML brings us another great dio, related to a French wine factory.

What a great place to have a skirmish.

This could be a grunt's dream come true: to slug it out inside a place full of booze!

Great pics!

There it is: everything is ready for receive the infantry.

Great job ML!

Do not forget to check out his website!

WWII Locomotives & War Series nº 69 - by Carlos Briz

(Class V 36 Dopellok - German State Railways)

CB delivered!

As I mentioned in our last post, it was a supernatural event that prevented CB's latest dio from showing up around here before the new year, but I can vouch that it was on our mailbox before that date.

You can see that CB never leaves a challenge unheeded...

Now you know what it takes to make a submarine cross a bridge: you just have to place it on a train!

The Type XXIII submarine is another great piece of less known war material used by CB on his dios.

This sub was designed to provide an easy transport by rail, allowing it's hull sections to fit the standard railway car, as you can notice in this dio.

Check out the awsome perspective given by this pic.

This guy is also a photo-artist!

Well, there is another great post coming up, this time from ML.

Stay tunned to the BT blog, the best modelling/wargaming blog on the web!
(we are a modest bunch...)

Orange Scenics Artwork (15 mm cardboard buildings) - by Mário Laranja

OK guys, I have to admit it's all my fault!

That's right, there are at least 3 posts in the assembly line of our outstanding blog, ready for my word input, related to ML's and CB's fantastic artwork.

It so happens that I had a close encounter with a UFO a few days ago, and lost all recollection of time and space.

I hope you all agree this is a perfect excuse for my delay in this matter...

Will you just check out the quality of all these great pics!

This is the kind of photographic expertise JP wants to put out, when he grows up...

However, I have to admit that JP has come a long way in that matter, as you can see in the latest post he placed in his fantastic blog.

Remember that this is made entirely in paper (cardboard)!

Awsome details like these are nowhere to be found.


And after...

As you can see, this stuff is (as usual...) battlefield ready.

You just have to place an elite infantry squad in there and blaze away!

Do not forget to check out ML's website for more goodies like this one!
