I have a lot miniatures on my painting desk and they have been there for some time. At present I don’t have any unpainted miniatures for games that I play regularly. So I have decided to paint some of these miniatures just to get them finished and off the desk.... read more
Staghound

Staghound

I like British armoured cars and this Staghound is a very cool model. IMHO, the Staghound is quite large for an armoured car and must have been hard to use effectively as a scout/recce vehicle. The T17E1 was an American built armoured car used by British and... read more

Devil’s Run

I really love the old Steve Jackson’s Car Wars so I could not let this one get away, so I backed it on Kick Starter: The models look really cool. I know its a board game but I hope it will have a similar feel to Car Wars.  ... read more

SU-76

      I have owned this SU-76 for a few years but I have never posted it on this humble blog before. I have been using it a lot in my Bolt Action Soviet armies lately. It is very handy with the versatile upgrade. Here it is: The SU-76 was a self... read more

1000 points of Soviets

I have not played much Bolt Action lately but I had a 1000 point game on the weekend. At my club,  a German player was to field 2000 points vs my 1000 points of Soviets and another player using 1000 points of USA. The German player did not make it to the club, so I... read more

The Wurfrahmen 40 (launch frame 40) was a German rocket launcher used in World War II. Rocket launchers were mounted on a SdKfz251 halftrack, captured vehicles or as towed artillery as the Nebelwerfer (Smoker Thrower). The German rocket launcher was also called Stuka... read more

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

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
