Fury

Posted on July 23rd, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

One of the displays that I really liked on my recent visit to the Tank Museum was that of the Sherman tank used in the film, Fury. April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man […]

So what’s going on here then?

One of my limited number of purchases from the wargaming show at the Tank Museum was a blister pack of police officers from Artizan Designs Thrilling Tales range, PLP586 Long Arm of the Law. They were in a bargain bucket and cost just £1.00 which is a lot less the list price of £8.50. These […]

The British are coming…

…in the meantime let’s take a look at the Germans. One thing that I thought that Battlefront would do when they released the Germans for Team Yankee was that they would do a minimal release and was pleasantly surprised by the range of models they did in fact bring out. With the initial releases for […]

Steaming in the desert

At the wargaming show at the Tank Museum I managed to get a pictures of the games on show, but to be honest was distracted by the tanks. One game which did catch my eye was this desert game in 20mm with a train. This was a very nice looking game. Didn’t really get the […]

Down at the Tank Museum

I’ve never been to the wargaming show at the Tank Museum before and it has been many years since I last visited the actual museum, but this year I did manage to get down to Bovington. There is something rather inspiring about visiting a gaming show amongst the many different kinds of tanks and armoured […]

Steaming

So in the Old West one thing you need to do, is to rob a train! However in order to play this scenario on the table you will need a train! I have been thinking for a while about getting a train for some Old West games. First thoughts were to get a toy train […]

Painting the roof

Posted on June 20th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

After my success with painting (or colouring) my Gaslamp Alley building I looked back over my Old West buildings from Sarissa Precision and decided to paint the roof. Looking back over a previous post back then I reflected on how to do this. For the roof I used 995 German Grey, which I did water […]

The Germans are coming

Though I really like the concept behind Battlefront’s World War Three game, Team Yankee, and I have the rules, I have not got any of the models as the US vs USSR hasn’t really appealed (and to be honest I have a bundle of Flames of War models still to paint). Last year Battlefront teased […]

Walking down Gaslamp Alley

Posted on May 24th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

One of recent purchases was a couple of Sarissa Precision buildings, Victorian brick buildings, part of their Gaslamp Alley range. I had bought the terrached house and the terraced shop. Here is the model from the Sarissa website. The Sarissa Precision models are laser cut MDF and come plain. I do quite like how the […]
