Germans vs British LateWar - Total War Game

by DaBoss on Mon Nov 12, 2012 11:13 am
At another of my Clubs that I frequent 'Wycombe Warband', we had organised a large 'Total War' game involving 10 players each with 1750pts of forces.

The German Players fielded:
2 x Panzerkompanies
1 x Schwere Panzerkompanie
1 x Grenadierkompanie
1 x Fallschirmjagerkompanie

While the British fielded:
1 x Guards Armoured Recce Squadron
2 x Guards Armoured Squadrons
1 x Polish Armoured Squadron
1 x Guards Rifle Company

Mine was the Guards Rifle Company which included a 16 Gun Battery (8 x 25pdrs + 8 x 5.5 guns) to give me a combined Devastating Template at AT5 FP4+ with re-rolls to hit...I was looking forward to this.

A few mistakes from the British, getting suckered into a firefight with 8 Tiger tanks and a stubborn resistance put up by the Fallschirmjager on an objective.

Ended on Turn 4 with a 12vp vs 11vp Win for the Germans (if only we had more time...)

Have included a PDF with photos of the game, enjoy.

Sons of Horus - Test Painting

by DaBoss on Sun Nov 03, 2013 2:12 pm
Just need to finish the base and do some highlights on the Shoulder Pauldrons
Think the Shoulder Icon needs darkening?
Plus Squad symbol of other shoulder - What to put there? Did Tactical Squad Markings exist in 30K pre-codex astartes?
- test painting of my Sons of Horus done.




Suggests and comments please.

Malifaux - Rasputina

So finally got round to adding some colour to Rasputina and her crew


Really loving painting these guys, taking my time adding layers of ink washes and highlights.

Still plenty to do...

What do you think?

Paper tanks - Tiger II "Konigstiger"

by Spack on Tue Jun 05, 2012 8:47 am
Last night I went looking for free paper tanks in order to supplement the train build, and stumbled across this site: http://www.terra.dti.ne.jp/~yoshidom/ It's in Japanese, but the pics next to the links make it easy to figure out what each free kit is. I grabbed the 1/72 Tiger 2 from here : http://www.terra.dti.ne.jp/~yoshidom/in ... 8-tig2.pdf

Putting the kit together was pretty easy, once I'd seen the instructions for the Panzer IV from the site page (http://www.terra.dti.ne.jp/~yoshidom/in ... -pkw4g.pdf ) as this included the details of what to do with each line. Solid lines are cut, dashed folded outwards, dot-dash folded inwards. Black stars are...

Malifaux Game - Viktorias vs Pandora

by DaBoss on Fri Jan 06, 2012 10:46 am
With the New Year passed, got my first game in 2012 at Malifaux.
A group of 4 players, the other guys being their first time out with their painted crews
We decided to have two games of Shared Turf War - get as many of your Crew into the opponents deployment zone.

Neil took his Rasputina Crew up against Mark's Lady Justice Crew, while my Pandora Crew faced off against Bill's Viktoria Crew.

Sorry no photos, as expected with learning the rules game took longer to play than expected (2.5 hours), should be quicker next time as we learn how our crews work and get use to not using dice!!!!

Short summary of major events:

Teddy charges with a 'Flurry' against sworded armed Viktoria and land two lots of weak claw hits then finishing off with a Teeth attack (just to see what it is like) getting a Severe hit for 10 damage - Viktoria is now missing a sizeable chunk of her body...

Unfortunately the other Outcasts then jumped on poor Teddy and between 5 attacks from Johan & Bishop is taken down,...
