Finished MidWar Mixed Tankovy Batalon

by DaBoss on Fri Sep 16, 2011 1:30 pm
Forgot to take my camera to Newbury Colours
So finally got round to taking some photo's of the painted army. People were surprised at how good the Zvezda models looked on table.
Really worked well when just taking the one manufacturer and not mixing with Battlefront which seem to be a good 1mm bigger in all dimensions.

King Of War - Base Model Cost and modifier to Unit Size cost

by DaBoss on Fri Jun 24, 2011 5:25 pm
With a lot of time on my hands in the evening (away on Customer Site and staying in hotels), I spent some time thinking over the costing of models and the unit size cost again.

So starting with a Skeleton Troop (10) at 45pts - that equates to a 'Single Model Cost' (SMC) of 4.5pts
likewise an Elven Spearmen Troop (10) at 60pts means a SMC of 6pts

If we take all the units from both the Undead and Elven factions, we get:
Undead
Skeleton 4.5pts
Revenant 6pts
Zombie 3pts
Wraith 25pts
Ghoul 4.5pts
Revenant Cavalry 16pts

Elven
Spearman 6pts
Sea Guard 10pts
Bowmen 9pts
Scout 8pts
Palace Guard 7pts
Stormwind Cavalry 18pts

So far so good...

Now looking at the Unit costs using these single model costs

So taking a Skeleton Troop (10) at a cost of 45pts
Single Model Cost of a Skeleton is 4.5pts
To get...

Warhammer Fantasy: High Elves

by Baragash on Thu Apr 07, 2011 8:42 pm
So back here started the 2011 1st Quarter Hobby Challenge. Unfortunately, as Stormwing needed a lot of work, including use of two-part epoxy and green stuffing, I didn't quite finish him, so I failed the challenge :(

Got the rest done: 2x 10 Swordmasters, 2x10 Sea Guard, 2x5 Reavers, Prince Althran on foot and on Griffon, Caladris, and 10 Horrors and the Changeling.

My Q2 challenge is currently being decided here

Easy Co. Update - 30th July 2013

by Cain Tiberius on Tue Jul 30, 2013 9:30 pm
Update time.

So with the addition of some plastic US infantry (painted as Airborne) that I bought from Tadhg, a 30.cal LMG team and a 50.cal HMG team, I've basically doubled my force.

Having a better idea of the rules now, I realise the LMGs have to be part of an infantry squad. And squads have to be at least 6 men. So the previously posted 2x 5 man infantry squads and 2 man LMG team, are now a 6 man squad with 5 rifles and 1 SMG. And another 6 man squad with LMG, Loader and 4 Rifles. They can be played separate like that or combined to make a single squad.

I initially intended to do a single reinforced platoon. But I've decided to have 2 Lieutenants. So the previous Lieutenant I promoted to Captain. The 1st Sergeant I promoted to 1Lt and I painted one of the plastic figures as a 2Lt. This will allow me to field more of the back up units.
