Panzerzug BP44 Train Day 3

by Spack on Wed May 16, 2012 11:41 pm
Started working on some of the smaller details on the locomotive and tender, adding buffers, armour plates for the buffers, boiler hatches, chimney, and driver cab windows.

As a mockup this works pretty well and allows me, using the Flattery plugin, to unfold the outer surfaces and create a mesh that I can print out - initially using a card template to check that the shells will fit the running gear and won't too look out of scale on the track, and then to cut out the main plasticard panels. Smaller details like inspection hatches and armour strips can be drawn in Photoshop and printed out later as they will be flat and simply cut out of thin plasticard and glued into place on the main surfaces. Here's the locomotive main shell flattened out:

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...

Panzerzug "Panzerjagerwagen" WIP

by Spack on Sun Jun 24, 2012 7:26 pm
Started work on the 1st variant of the Panzerjagerwagen, a flat railcar with Pz IV turret mounted on a raised section. This railcar sits at the very end of the train, using it's plough to remove barricades from the railway and it's turret to fight off attacks. The rear of the chassis is heavily slanted so that the ramp from the Pz 38t well wagon fits underneath it - when the tank needs to be deployed the Panzerjagerwagon is detached and rolled forward, leaving a gap for the Pz 38t to drive down the ramp and out on patrol.

And a shot of the BP44 half train with all the railcars in position, including the Panzertriebwagen 51 between the artillery/flak railcar and the well wagon carrying the Pz 38t.

And finally a shot of the entire BP44 train (note that there's only one Panzertriebwagen 51 in the rear...

Horus Heresy & Malifaux

by DaBoss on Thu Jan 02, 2014 6:18 pm
Had another good day of painting with my son.

I managed to Biel-Tan Ink Wash my Sons of Horus.

Notice: I've added the Brass etched Sons of Horus Symbols to the Spartans.
Next I need to Dry Brush them with Dawnstone to lighten the Green Wash to match the test 5 I painted last year.
Still waiting for the Sponsons for the Spartans

Then we both spent some time painting up my next crew for Malifaux (actually Bradley quite likes them but using Somer Teeth Jones)
Here is what I've got finished for Ophelia Crew:

Ophelia Master
2 Bayou Gremlins
2 Slop Haulers
4 Piglets
2 Stuffed Piglets
2 War Pigs

Bradley is painting up the other 5 Bayou Gremlins and Somer.

I think Ophelia will be on the table for tomorrows game of Malifaux 50 Soulstones.
