Flames of War - Total War

by DaBoss on Sun Aug 12, 2012 8:26 am
Having a long summer break between Contracts - so have time to play big games.

Had 2 games of FoW and persuaded Stu & Ian to take me on at "Total War" mission, this is played with larger than normal forces, we went for 3000pts from one Company.
There are 6 objectives on the table which give you 1vp each turn held, 2 in each players deployment and 2 6" from center line. We played over a 6' x 7' table.

BA Blog 20th August Predators

by Cain Tiberius on Sat Aug 20, 2011 3:09 pm
Hi folks. Been a month since I posted anything new :roll:
But never fear, the Avatar lookilike Sham Geek has something new too share, lol.

I've been working on two Predator Tanks. One is one of my MK1 Conversions, the other is just a regular kit. As usual, I have magnetised the weapons so I can take pretty much any loadout on both tanks. The nly exception (for the moment) is I can only take one Annilator Pred as I only have one Twin Linked Lascannon between them (for now)

SPACE:1959

by estarriol on Sat Jul 02, 2011 12:03 pm
Welcome to my blog here. I hope to have it cover my SPACE:1959 project in one place.

This has been ongoing for over a year now, but with interuptions like moving etc it has progressed in fits and starts.

Firstly my latest additions:

Building is directly lifted from the wonderful Matakishi's site. http://www.matakishi.com/afghancompoundbuild.htm

I have borrowed his Afghan compounds to use for villagers living near the Fire Zone on Venus. It is currently unpained as I intend to make several more of them and then batch paint them.

The base is 300mm square MDF, and the Orks on the roof for scaling are GW ones.

Also in the shot are 2 of my wip vehicles, a Saladin APC and a M113.

On the roof is also a BAOV Dragon Team and the Brig overseeing the building with the thought of using it for his new HQ.

Angron Model for Horus Heresy

by DaBoss on Wed Sep 28, 2011 3:29 pm
Finally found a model that I liked the look of and was the right size.

Scibor Miniatures - 28mm Chaos Master
www.sciborminiatures.com/pow.php?absol=1&co=i/2011/big/chaos_master_01.jpg

He actual stands more like twice the height of a Space Marine.
Perfect as a Pre-Daemon Angron just after Istvaan Massacre when he is starting to devote himself and the Worldeaters to Khorne.

Have added some wire to represent the psycho-surgery and put a number of Khorne brass symbols from forgeworld to replace some of the chaos icons; also changed the Mace end for an Axe (more khorne like).

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...
