1/48 Katzchen APC



Just got me a Weird WWII 1/48 scale paper panzer powerhouse, I give you the Kitten apc. This bad boy is the creation of Arctic Skunk over at Shapeways and comes to you in a single piece of plastic to boot! The minis are Artizan Design minis for scale. Great product, service and if 1/48 isn't your scale he's got it in several different scales as well. He also does a ton more stuff so swing over and check it out!! I'm going to try and give it a painting over this weekend but I was so excited I wanted to let you all in on it! Spread the word and let those panzergrenadiers finally ride in style!!!

Excellent stuff form a digital wizard!!!

"Bunker of the Dead"

Two kids find proof that a huge cache of Nazi gold is in an abandoned military base in rural Germany.  After infiltrating the sealed structure they are surprised to find that there is no gold but instead the building is infested with Nazi zombies and other supernatural other-world critters!  Can our heroes survive their ordeal or will the join the horde as one of the undead?  This is actually a surprisingly entertaining flick.  It's pretty much like if your were playing a FPS but its got enough shitty humor and good visuals that make you keep watching it.  A testamant to the FPS generation and definatly a worthy addition to some "good" low-budget trash in the Weird WWII genera.  Check out the trailer below and see what you think.

Surprisingly, worth a checking out,

New Weird WWII Flick, "Overlord" aka "Cloverfield 4"?


Well looks like we're going to get another Colverfield pos but it will be set within WWII.  Check out the below video for a bit more insight on what Master Exploder has in store for his first run in the Weird WWII genera.  Here is the article from Dread Central.

If it's like the last one it's going to be a mess, in a bad way.

"Jungle Fighters" aka "The Long and the Short and the Tall"



A British sonic warfare unit is deep in the jungles of Burma when they run into the vanguard of the advancing Japanese forces.  Will this hodgepodge group of misfits stand up to the challenge or will the succumb to their faults and fears against their enemy?  This was an interesting flick.  It's more about the disfunction of the squad then combat but its worth a once over.  Couldn't find a trailer for it but here is a clip of it.  Pretty much shows the feel and pacing of the whole flick.

Not a bad flick,
Brian



"The Triple Echo"


A woman and her lover try to live a life in obscurity in the farmlands of the UK.  It isn't until a local Sgt. has eyes for her lover, in disguise as a woman, that things go South.  Will they be discovered or will they keep up their ruse and live a life away from the war and everything else.  Now this was a strange flick and to see Reed get in on with a dude in drag is pretty funny and worth a look. 

It's different,
Brian

MiniArt's new "What If" line of model kits.


MiniArt is coming out with a new line of Weird WWII 1/35 scale model kits.  The line is called "What If..?" and the first will be the Soviet "Sharotank" or Ball Tank.  Take a gander at their preview below and start saving your cash!

This looks pretty awesome!!

"Heroes Never Die"


A team of Allied agents are tasked with hunting down a captured Allied radar set in the hands of the Germans and destroy it before they can figure out how it works and duplicate it.  So it's off to the fjords of Norway or I should say the rocky mountains of Italy as this is just more Italian WWII crap that was mass produced back in the day.  It's your basic Dirty Dozen-esq clone that is lacking in every way.  I wanted to like it with my man Henry Silva in it but even he couldn't make it into "good" low-budget crap.  Couldn't find a trailer so you'll have to track it down yourself.

No big loss if you never see it,
Brian

"In Which We Serve"


The HMS Torrin is commissioned, manned and deployed to fight the Germans in the Battle of Crete.  Follow the exploits of her combat and crew on the front and on the home front.  This British wartime film is a must for any fan of the genera.  Check out the trailer and see what you think.

A great no holds bare war flick,
Brian

"Night of the Zombies"


A horde of the undead are terrorizing the living and it is up to a small cadre of soldiers to stop them!  This is an ultra low-budget pos and not really worth viewing.  The only person of note is the porn star legend, Jamie Gillis staring in it.  The trailer is below so you can see what you won't miss.

It's crap,
Brian

"Allies"


A small force of Allied soldiers are tasked with stealing a set of maps needed for the American's break out of Normandy.  Can this mix of Allied soldiers put aside their bs and work as a team or will the mission fail before it begins?  This is your classic commando raid flick we've all see before and not much new here either.

Worth a once over and then to be forgotten,
Brian

"Alone in Berlin"


After the death of their son, a bereaved German couple protest the war in their own way against the oppressive Nazi regime in Berlin.  Can these two brave citizens continue their protest or will they be caught and silenced?!  This is a movie about the real-life brave German couple who did what they could against the evil that had taken hold in their country.  

A great flick of two brave freedom-fighters,
Brian
