As ever I will be joined by my...ahem...good friend Alan Grotson and tonight we are also joined by Lucky Logan a human star, who has been watching this season with great interest so far"

AG- "Good Evening Snot and good evening to our guest Lucky Logan"

LL- "Thanks for having me guys..." Phone rings "...Oh excuse me fellas that's my agent calling...You've reached Logan it's your lucky day"

Snot and Alan look at each other in slight disbelief

Something different 7th August

by Cain Tiberius on Tue Aug 07, 2012 8:32 pm
Updated pics in the comments ~ 10th August

Made some progress with my Devestator Squad, but nothing really worth posting.

However while in town, I found this little star in a charity shop.
Image

The box was rather tatty round the edges, but the model is completely untouched inside. Everything still on sprews and in unopened polythene bags. Instruction and decals included. And all the princely sum of £1.50!
Image

I've been thinking of doing a small(ish) guard detatchment as Allies using Mantic Warpath Corperation figures. Now this 1/35 scale challenger II is about the same length as the Baneblade, but a fraction narrower and shorter. But I'm thinking it could pass for a medium heavy range. ...

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 "Geschutzwagen" WIP

by Spack on Fri Jun 15, 2012 10:44 pm
Another small update to the Panzerzug BP44 model train is the basic hull of the Geschutzwagen, which is armed with a 10.5cm turret.

This railcar is connected up to the tender, with the Kommandowagen between it and the Artillery/Flak railcar.

The next railcar in line will be the tank carrying well wagon which carries a Pz38t light tank and has a folding loading ramp, followed by a Panzerjaegerwagen which is a flat railcar with a Panzer IV turret. For the full BP44 duplicates of the railcars are added in the same order to the front of the train, plus two flat wagons which carry supplies and help protect the train should anything be in the way on the track. I'm still trying to decide where the Panzertriebwagen 51 will be placed,...

Building 30K Sons of Horus Force

by DaBoss on Sun Dec 08, 2013 9:10 pm
So after test painting 5 Sons of Horus models and liking what I did, I jumped in and bought myself a force of Sons of Horus as my birthday present to myself.
Put the order into Forgeworld for 45 Mk III Armour, Phobos Boltguns, 10 Plasma Guns, Sons of Horus shoulder pads, 2 Apothecaries and the Loken & Abbaddon box set. As I was putting such a big order in I decided to also pick up two Spartan Tanks and the Ferrus Manus Primarch model (see these models in a later blog).

Should have enough for a 1500pts+ force, swap in 2 Plasma Guns into each 20 Man Squads and ready to use as Chaos Space Marine Force.

This weekend I started on the Tactical Space Marines, washed and cleaned up the models; started fixing them together.
