Review: Model Box – The Monthly Subscription Box for the Miniature Hobbyist

Posted on March 26th, 2017 under . Posted by

Are you aware of subscription boxes? I must admit that it was something that had completely slipped past my radar until my son Josh recently started getting a box every month containing various geek goodies (A T-shirt, plus other merchandise bits and pieces). I’m not sure if he uses Lootcrate or Superloot for this. Subscription boxes are a service where you sign up to receive a box every month. The boxes are themed, usually around a hobby or pastime, but are essentially a completely blind purchase – part of the appeal lies in mystery of “What have I got this month?” I was contacted by George Kleanthous of Model Box, and asked if I was interested in reviewing this product, especially since the March box had a theme of ‘War’. This is a brief description of the product from Model Box themselves: Model Box is a monthly subscription box designed for wargamers, collectors and painters. Similar to other subscription boxes (like Loot Crate), each month’s box is based on a theme. Our boxes contain at least 1 miniature, paints and a mixture of other accessories for our hobby such as brushes, scenery, terrain materials etc. Model Box Mission Statement: There are hundreds of […]

Bolt Action: Australian Commandos Review & Painting Guide

Posted on March 25th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

By Bryan

G’day fellas! Warlord Games has finally released the first of it’s Australian range in the form of the Independent Company Commandos. The miniatures are fantastic sculpts, very accurate and a pleasure to paint. Read on and I’ll go over the boxed set in a little more detail, as well as a step by step painting guide you can follow to paint your own Aussies. 

The boxed set contains a full strength section of Australian Independent Company Commandos, being 10 men. They are equipped in a historically typical fashion with 6 sub machine guns, 1 Bren light machine gun and 4 Lee Enfield rifles. One of those rifles has a scope and the sub machine guns are the iconic, Australian designed and made Owen Gun. These really help to give the models that Australian look.

The sculptor, the talented Steve Saleh, has taken this further by really paying close attention to period photos of the men he is representing in miniature. Take a look at this photo on the left and you’ll see what I mean. He has managed to capture the rugged look of the men of these units. They often sported beards as they would be out on 12 day long patrols in the jungle, behind Japanese lines.

The style of beret worn by the Australian Commando units is also slightly different to their more well known British counterparts. Less a sign of elite status and more a practical piece of jungle head gear, the miniatures again capture that individualistic approach to uniform regulations in the Australian Independent Companies.

The sculpting is fantastic, and the equipment and uniforms are accurate, so I give these 5 out of 5 Owen Guns. Okay, onto how to paint your Pacific Australians.
