OstFront

You might have noticed that I own a few WW2 armies, namely British, German and a large Soviet army. I was very pleased when I heard Warlord was producing an Eastern Front supplement and more so when it was going to be written by Andy Chambers. After reading the book I... read more

Bambo

I really want a good looking Bushido board so I bought a pack of 100 bamboo from Ebay (China) for $9. 1. I curled the ends of the bamboo into circles and super glued them to plastic bases: 2. I then used wood glue to glue sand onto the bases and pieces of cork for... read more

1250 points of Soviets

Last weekend I had a 1250 point Bolt Action game. My Soviet vs Alistair’s Japanese playing the envelopment scenario. The Soviets were the attackers. I used two Reinforced Soviet Platoons (first time I have taken two). 18 order dice. Everything is regular unless noted.... read more
First Bushido game

First Bushido game

My first Bushido game was interesting. IMHO Bushido is a game all about combos (like many other games out there). History has shown that I am not very good at combo style games. However, the low model count does make this game a little easier. The game we played was... read more

Ito Clan starter

I have had my two Bushido starter sets for some time now (over 4 months). I can honestly say that I was a little hesitant to start painting them as it has been some time since I have painted any “individual fantasy” type miniatures. I have been painting... read more

German Tank Destroyers

Here is a picture of all my current German tank destroyers (yes, I have more on my shopping list). I have individual posts on this site of the tanks if you want a closer look. What do you think? I think they look like a nice little family. These models are from  Die... read more

The Guild

I played some Malifaux 2E recently and so I thought I would post some pictures of my Guild miniatures. They are the old first edition miniatures. I really like wild west themed miniatures so the Ortegas were my natural choice for Malifaux. Perdita Ortega: Santiago... read more

Objectives

I decided to make some objective markers for Bushido. I bought six hard plastic “Buddhas” for about $10 from a “cheap” shop. I glued them on suitable sized bases and glued sand on the bases: I them sprayed them grey and under coated them... read more
Puma

Puma

Who doesn’t own or want to own a Puma? They are one of the most iconic armoured cars of WW2 and a great addition to any German force. The Puma (Sd.Kfz. 234/2) is an armoured car built by Germany from September 1943 to September 1944 (there seems to be some... read more

Display Board Part 4

Here is the continuation of my display and (Bushido) gaming board.   Step 16: Using clear drying wood glue, glue flock on the board and hills.     Step17: I glued some bushes and sticks on the hills. I did not glue much on the main board because I want... read more
