Malifaux - Molly Squidpiddge Crew

by DaBoss on Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:26 am
I've got a thing about painting female models in Malifaux,they are my favourite sculpts.

So when looking for my next crew i was looking through the Resurrectionists (as no-one in our club was doing them) and was not happy with the Masters available, then I read the rules for Henchmen and saw Molly Squidpiddge and knew that was my next purchase.
I also picked up some scenic bases at the same time - really like them plus the add weight to the models when placed on the tabletop.

It's going to be interesting painting faded and dirty clothes but still trying to capture the female beauty...

So we have:
Molly Squidpiddge as Master (Henchman)
3 x Rotten Belle's 12ss
1 x Rogue Necromancy 10ss
Total 22ss

So running a 25ss Scrap - planning on adding a Necrotic Machine and would like more Belle's but need something different than the current ones, anyone got some ideas from other manufacturers???

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...

FoW AAR - Conflict Campaign Weekend 2011

by DaBoss on Wed Dec 07, 2011 7:18 pm
So this last weekend I went along to Conflict 2011 - a new type of FoW event, instead of Tournament based line ups, each Player had to decide if they were going to be on the either the Allies or Axis side; armies and scenery would be themed to be Normandy & 'Hells Highway' era's.

So I decided to throw in with the Germans and planned out 4 lists to try my skills with:
1 - FestungKompanie defending the Atlantic Wall
2 - PanzerKompanie racing to intercept the invading Allies.
3 - Schwere PanzerKompanie defiantly blocking the Allies advance.
Day 2 - my FallschirmjagerKompanie led by Von der Heydte would try and inflict as much damage on the Allied forces pushing towards Arnhiem.

A great weekend was had, managed to win 3 games of the 5. But really liked the theme that the weekend promoted in peoples armies.

Next Year sounds like it might be a Bagration Themed event - so I might have to pull out the Russian hordes for that one.

Anyway, attached is a write up of my battles and opponents....

Predator P1 Bio 1/4 scale 3D modelling continued

by Spack on Thu Mar 26, 2015 9:01 pm
Initial modelling details can be found in blog/Spack/predator_bio_mask_14_scale_modelling_b-176.html

I finally got around to working on the 3D model again, and have reached a point where I'm happy with the details and have prepared the model for printing. As well as finishing the interior venting details, the hose connector on the left temple was replaced with something closer to that used on the NECA Big Red figure (the Big Red bio is almost identical to the original P1 helmet, the only differences being the two half spheres on the forehead and the colour), and a small hose connector detail was added to the left cheek (this detail is missing from the NECA bios).

SPACE:1959 part 2 More buildings

by estarriol on Fri Jul 08, 2011 11:08 am
2 more buildings constructed, these things are addictive!

Firstly my second 28mm Compound. Again the Brig and some Treen are giving it the once over. For scale the mdf base is 300mm x 300mm.

Next up is the second building, another Afghan style compound but this time in 6mm. Again for reference the base is 70mm x 70mm. This was made by simply chopping some old bits of a chipboard shelf into the right heights then adding card surrounds for the lips of the roof. Makes them solid and pretty quick to knock, the hardest thing being cutting out the windows/doors!.
