TV not rotting my brain
June 26, 2008
SBS has been screening a documentary series called “The Wehrmacht” – at the moment we are halfway through.
It features lots of colour movie footage taken during the war, making it invaluable for wargaming and modelling – and it’s reassuring to see my colour schemes for people, vehicles and buildings are all fine! I’ll watch it all again sometime in the near future in order to get some ideas for terrain and scenery (although there’s no need for the great Russian plains – thousands of miles of thigh-high grass with the odd bush or tree – easy).
I rescued some polystyrene insulation blocks from the waste skip of a building site. It’s nice and thick, so I’ll try to use it for hilly/mountainous areas such as Hungary, Romania and Italy. Colour photos and footage would be nice before I start, obviously…
