20mm Painted WW2 German Field Kitchen.

"If they build it I will usually buy it for my lead and resin addiction"

Painted (no idea if I painted them right) these a while ago as it appealed to me, no use in a wargame other than scenery (maybe morale) but if they build it I will usually buy it, comes from SGTS MESS and not a bad sculpt for a change, you get 4 figures and the trailer and I added the rest of the items to bulk out the unit.

Still painting 28mm ACW Union troops for the challenge.........







.....and a further simple guide to understanding women!

  1. Fantastic painting work, Fran. I like to put these type of models on the table; they add a lot of character to the game.

    Cheers!

  4. That's a very characterful piece of scenery. The fact that it looks so good should outweigh any practical use for it.

  5. Some good tabletop additions, are you sure it's not the Wunderwaffe?

  7. Good paint job Fran!

    Love the "extras" for all game they add to the fealing for the period.

    best regards Michael

  9. Those are the important guys in battle - those that handle up on the food. Great job!

    The women's language had me laughing but I don't do that because I am perfect, as are all other women!!!

  10. You seem to be pretty functional with your lead and resin addiction, so I don't think treatments necessary at this point.

  11. Nice job with the cooks!
    The last line about women nails it.

  12. I like how women pretend to be complicated when we know they aren't. Then again, men do it too. At least the scenery looks pretty good.

  13. Very nice. I must have such a thing in 1/87 somewhere. Time to check the bitzbox :)

  14. Nice looking "Goulash Kannone"!

  16. Excellent looking figures. Must agree on the piece on women

  17. Nice one Fran, when are they on ebay then?

  18. Great paint work as always, and as a married man, I recognize that 'woman speak' all too well. However, it's missing "nothing." Because "nothing" always means "something", as in, "what's wrong, honey?"

    NOTHING.

  19. Cool paint job. Love the figures.

  20. Nice work Fran, Perhaps use it as an objective for a Christmas game

  21. It was the chef in you that made this purchase Francis Lee. I hope you notice that I've just used your full name. Now, does that mean you're in trouble? Or am I just mucking about? If you don't reply to this comment, will you be in the doghouse?

  22. Good stuff and a different subject matter from usual SS and Panzers (or is this an SS Panzer unit field kitchen !?)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nice job here mate. Really liking them, and agreed that they would add to the morale or mood of the gaming experience at the very least!

  24. Way cool. I've been looking for a 25/28mm Soviet field kitchen for some time now!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nice models and I'll ask my wife if it's acceptable to laugh at the "Woman's" questions

    ReplyDelete
  26. haha the guy holding the goose is awesome, great job.

    ReplyDelete
  27. No means yes..unless it means no....and there´s the problem.
    The chef, Heinz, can only cook 57 types of dishes....all of them soup which the troops called "Heinz´s varieties"
    Ok..it´s a crap pun ..but it is Monday evening :-D

  28. Yes, me rikey...me rikey velly much. A number 12, a number 47 and an portion of fried rice please.

  29. Fran, they look perfect. I've eaten far too much over Christmas and New Year, but had I not done so it would almost make me feel hungry!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Very nice!
    I was talking about figures, not women's languages...my wife is not far...

  31. Very nice work, my General! Sir, in your gaming universe the colors you choose for your creations are always right! Hail whatever-territory-it-is-you are ruling now!!

  32. Great figures and "Gulaschkanone".

  33. Some real character in there Fran.

  34. Excellent! An army moves on its stomach.

  35. By the time we figure out women's language they change it up on us!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh, the guy on the far right (meat cleaver - holding a goose)really impresses me. So then you eff it up by posting 'women's language'... consider your goose cooked! :p

    ReplyDelete
  37. Really nice Gulaschkanone, with the cooks looking suitably well fed. And even the Duchess reckons the guide to women is spot on.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Looks like an important tactical objective to me, hot food in the field was always a bonus!

    ReplyDelete
  39. So there's a 'right' way to paint these?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Very cool Fran. I think the "extras" like this if great even they don't serve a purpose for the table top battle. It's still nice to see vignettes like this on the periphery.

  41. im glad i cant read in pink. somehting about the colour being so bright i cant make it out

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've seen that before the woman/man thing. That's funny and a little bit true for some chicks.

    Nice painting as usual. Have a groovy night and boogie boogie boogie.

  43. Nice work Fran, there's a lot of character in this set. I can heard the voice of Sgt. Schultz (Hogan's Heroes) asking about dinner and strudel.

  44. well its an interesting subject, my great grandfather was in the british catering corpe

    ReplyDelete
  45. Very good - great to see the old 'slops' turning up with the dixies ;)

  46. I hope that poor duck managed to escape before that horrid man cut her head off :(

  47. More great stuff. Nice job Fran.

  48. I recall a first person account by a Canadian whose unit scaled up an "unscaleable" mountain in Sicily. When they got to the top they surprised a German kitchen unit. Said kitchen unit scrambled for positions and returned fire. The Canadians eventually won the day however.

  49. Really nice field kitchen!

    And now I understand why my wife is looking angry at me! Thanks Fran! Now I can translate her words! :-D

  50. When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the image of a user in
    his/her brain that how a user can know it.
    So that's why this piece of writing is great. Thanks!

    Have a look at my website ... abercrombie and fitch
