Warlord Games Autoblinda AB41

Posted on July 24th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

I was wary of picking up this kit. Historically, resin and metal model kits are, as a rule, a huge pain. There can be warping, miscast components, required drilling, pinning and removal of release agent. All hassles that you don’t have to deal with when building a plastic kit. Luckily, the Warlord Games Autoblinda AB41 had […]

SeaFall – Two games in…

Posted on July 17th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

The hype was real. At GenCon 2016 the game sold out before the doors even opened to the general public. Expectations were high and everyone was talking about SeaFall in hushed, reverent tones. So here we are, almost a year after its initial release, and I have finally ripped open the shrink-wrap, punched the tokens, […]

Project: Black Templars

Posted on June 4th, 2017 under . Posted by

Hi all! So with 8th edition of 40k right around the corner I recently dusted off my boxes of Imperial Guard (sorry, Astra Militarum) and Black Templars, pulling out both masses of unbuilt sprues/boxes as well as all the assembled stuff in its foam. I took a few days to decide which I would be […]

Ottlite

Posted on May 31st, 2017 under , . Posted by

I have always been frustrated with how my miniatures look in one environment to the next. Nothing is worse than looking at something you’ve just worked on, say in your basement under a light, then taking your work to show the world outside or somewhere in natural light and being shocked how different, and in […]

WIP – Armor, armor everywhere

Posted on May 25th, 2017 under . Posted by

I haven’t done a whole lot of hobbying recently. But the other week I got my shipment in from Mad Bob Miniatures in the UK, consisting of a few vehicles I am probably going to use for Operation Sting in November. As I’ve mentioned previously in my 2017 hobby goals post, I plan on revisiting the […]

Campaign: Sea Lion

Posted on May 23rd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Warlord Games heads into new territory with their latest Bolt Action supplement, Campaign: Sea Lion. Unlike the previous Warlord releases that are all rooted in historical events, Sea Lion explores a “what if” scenario, the German invasion of Britain. Although Operation Sea Lion, or Seelöwe, was a real operation, it was planned and resources were allocated, an invasion […]

Road to Dallas: Judgement Day

Posted on May 15th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

This article was written in two parts. The first part was written before I knew whether or not I had won my local store’s Ritual of Judgement, the second was written after I knew what I place I finished and I evaluated the first part of this article and see if my predictions were accurate. Let’s get to […]

2017 Hobby Plans – Ben

Posted on May 5th, 2017 under , . Posted by

With Adepticon done and gone, and a bit of a break taken from hobbying, I’m ready to get rolling again, and the best way to start that is by planning out the year. As we’ve mentioned before, our hobby yearly schedule tends to revolve around Adepticon, with other tournaments (Such as Operation Sting for Bolt […]
