The new Star Wars: Rogue One trailer has been released. The film is looking better and better and I am really looking forward to seeing it in its entirety.

Building the Chicago Way

Posted on August 9th, 2016 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Though I still have to paint some models for The Chicago Way and make up the Shotgun House I bought at a recent show, I have been thinking about other potential buildings. Looking over the film The Untouchables, which was the inspiration for the rules, has some nice shots of buildings. Zooming in (click the […]

Steaming along

I am making progress on my Sarissa Precision Old West steam engine. The first part I attempted was the tender. This went together really easily and is a clever design, turning what is flat pieces of MDF into a three dimensional model. Laser-cut MDF models use to be mainly buildings, or thing with straight lines, […]

Heer 1946

Posted on July 29th, 2016 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

One of the games at the wargames show at Bovington that I did a good look at was this 15mm 1946 game complete with a range of alternate German and Allied tanks that were designed, but either were too late for action, or never got further than the drawing board. I have to admit I […]

In one of  my previous articles on Team Yankee I did say: I think it would be nice to have seen the Kanonenjagdpanzer, but you can’t have everything. What I hadn’t realised when writing the article that as part of the German releases, Battlefront have released the Jaguar Jagdpanzer Zug. The Jaguar 1 and Jaguar 2 […]

Where is Team Yankee going?

I was pleased to get for a present the Warlord LVT-4 Buffalo Amtrac for Bolt Action. The LVT-4 is a 1/56th scale 28mm resin and metal kit and comes in a box with a picture of the completed model on the front. I am in the process of building a Commando team to fight alongside […]

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 […]
