Russian Mixed Tankovy visits Newbury Colours MidWar Tournament

by DaBoss on Mon Sep 12, 2011 3:31 pm
So took my MidWar Soviet Mixed Tankovy Battalon along to Newbury Colours.
The organiser turned up late leaving 24 gamers catching the breeze.
We get going by 10am and my first game was Encounter verses a British 1st Army
Infantry Company

He had
3 x Rifle Platoons (1 with attached Piat)
1 x Churchill Tanks (3 tanks)
1 x Royal Artillery (8 Guns) Battery 25pdrs
1 x Medium Artillery (8 Guns) Battery 5.5"

He deployed his Artillery and one rifle platoon, I deployed my rocket launchers and the KV-1e tanks
He spent four turns failing to range or hurt my KVs, so I decided to steam forward and roll over his artillery - managed to kill 3 medium guns (didn't know they had 32" range!!!)
Then on his 5th turn he got his Churchills which stopped my attack on the objective, but he also dropped all his artillery on them and destroyed 3 and bailed 1 - I then failed my morale and lose the platoon, meanwhile his infantry have moved to assault my rocket launchers on the other objective.
My turn 5...

Unfortunately the light isn't very good, but I need to prove it was finished tonight, so it'll have to do for now.

Also finished one of my favourite FW models ...

Panzerjager-Triebwagen 51 Armoured Tank Hunter Railcar

by Spack on Sun Jun 03, 2012 11:38 am
Technically not part of the BP42/BP44 trains as the Panzerjager-Triebwagens 50-55 never saw service, I wanted to include one of these Panzer IV turret armed railcars in the train model. This is the undetailed model to use as the basic plasticard template, with lots of hatches to be added during the build. The turrets are really rough but give an idea of how the final model will look.

If I can get my hands on a few 1:76 or 1:72 scale PzIV turrets from model kits it'll make life easier, but I don't really need to buy entire model kits - I'll need at least 4 PzIV turrets in total, 2 for this railcar and 2 more for the Panzerjagerwagens (flat cars with a single PzIV turret) that will be at each end of the train. I even looked at Plastic Soldier Company 1:72 PzIVs as a possible option but...

Malifaux - Latest Painting effort

by DaBoss on Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:17 am
Had some spare time last week, so added some paint to some models.
Still plenty of work to be done but they are a pleasure to work on.

Cassandra the Showgirl, to add to my Rasputina Crew. Nice combat abilities and with Grande Finale might be able to change the results of the Strategy.

December Acolyte - Some long range sniping from this model to add to the short range ice blasts from the rest of the crew.

Trying to get a dirty nasty look to Teddy, think it will look better once I've done his claws, teeth and eyes.
But what to put on his front heart shaped space???

Bara's adventures in dipping

by Baragash on Thu Jan 26, 2012 11:11 pm
Little experiment in dipping on a "red shirt" model:
Image
Image

Method:
Spray white
Usual base technique
Brush on Quickshade Medium
Clean brush in white spirit
Pick out collar in Chainmail
Light drybrush of Bleached Bone
Light drybrush of Skull White (inc base)

Job done :)

(Well I need to tidy the rim and do a quick wash on the Chainmail, but yeah)

Hopefully this will develop into a speedy appearance of my Tomb Kings :)

Thanks Matt :)
