Here are a couple of 6lbs guns for my Napoleonic French army. These are from Old Glory and I think they turned out pretty good. Not show winners but they will work on the table. These took entirely too long to paint but that has been …

Hey guys! It’s Casey here. I recently had the chance to sit down and talk with Nate from Trenchworx about their newest Kickstarter, “Tanks on the Western Front”, but before I get into that, here’s a quick introduction about me and my love affair with Bolt Action.
Shortly after high school I joined the United States Marine Corps as a rifleman and got to see the world. While in the military I was introduced to Warhammer 40,000. I ended up with quite a few miniatures but as you know, life gets in the way and I never really got around to playing an actual game. That left me with a drive to play a miniatures game but I was never able to find the right one. Fast forward to last year – while scrolling through a friend’s Facebook feed, I saw some pics of his Bolt Action Soviets and was instantly hooked. I have always had a intense interest in World War II so after some googling and a few YouTube videos, my first army was on its way. Shortly thereafter I was able to get a demo with the infamous Oscar “Sugary Sweet” Barela. After that I was in hooked. Now a little over a year later, I own half a dozen armies, organize events here in Texas, and still can’t wait to throw dice with friends new and old. Enough about me though, on to Nate at Trenchworx and some information about their newest Kickstarter..
Our survivors along with their new found friends came across an abandoned farm house a mile or two up the road from the camp site in part one. The farm house provided somewhere to stay for a while. However their supplies are running low and it is now t…
It’s been a while coming, what with my hobby butterfly approach, and working on them in batches of 8 models at a time, but my very first 28mm scale Napoleonic battalion is complete! I am very happy about this as Napoleonics has always been near the top…
I bumped into Annie last night, in her shop of all places! Whilst proudly showing off the new ogre female miniatures that she’s had beautifully painted by Paul Cubbin, she whipped out her newly received, hot of the press Adira, Dark Champion 28mm…

Today we are going have a look at the Rubicon Models M10/M36 kit. This is another stunning kit from Rubicon that is brimming to the top with options. This kit not only has the option to make the M10 Wolverine as I have here, but also the M10A1 variant, the 17pdr SP Achilles (Ic or IIc) and the M36 Jackson (M36, M36B1 or M36B2). They model makers at Rubicon have managed to fit this staggering amount of choices into the one box. The modular nature of Rubicon’s kits really make them big game winners in my eyes. So come with me as I crack open this box of goodness and assemble my very own M10 Wolverine.
Now that the base is finally done I began putting some paint on the assassin himself! Here he is primed, my standard zenithal approach although I went a little heavier on the white than I usually do. Due to the recessed nature of the face I decide…

War gaming hills. They are an integral part of the terrain features on all of our tables no matter what system we play. Hills also provide depth to tables, block line of site and provide cover from enemy fire. When people have asked me over the years what types of terrain they should make first for their tables, I always say “hills” without question. There are a lot of different techniques for making hills and there is, by no means, a right or a wrong way of making them. Terrain is a very personal thing for me. Ultimately you have to be happy with the way any piece of terrain looks on your table. To that end, I would remind everyone that this is the way I like to build hills an it works well for me. If you have some alternate methods please feel free to share on our forum.
I am going to show you a couple of different types of hills and rocky outcroppings that I have been working on.

Just a quick pic from the painting table:

A couple weeks back, (the 7th of May to be exact) the Bolt Action Alliance, in conjunction with House of War (HoW) and War and Peace Games ran the second Melbourne based Bolt Action event for the year. It was a 1000 point event running generic platoons with no hard restrictions as we were running the BAA season 3 format.

The latest game at Reject HQ saw us come about as close to ‘fantasy wargaming’ as I have ever seen in the shed-o-war. Two rival Pirate Captains and their crews have learned of the secret hiding place of a hoard somewhere on Alligator Island and both ar…
I have also jumped on the new bandwagon for Frostgrave and I have to admit that it´s a fun little game. Their are flaws in the rulebook composition, it feels a bit old some times. Also some cheat sheets are needed to get the game speed up. But people how liked Necromunda will love this game.
Their is an large amount of luck involved sins you only role one dice for hit and damage and there is no way as I know it to make rerolls. But it´s part of the game and you have to accept it. If you like games that are less luck involved play Warmachine or similar games. This game is all about the narrative game play and have levelling of your Wizards. Also a good mechanic is how it handles the ganging up on foes, you get +1 bonus on your dice roll. Simple and fast way to handle this. Shooting is powerful but you should have plenty off terrain to hide behind. But if you don´t whatch you can your wizard be one shooted.
The down side, the campaign system do not handle the difference between a high level warband and a new one. But this you can fix with some minor of the system, like giving rerolls/certain amount of difference in levels or give gold/exp to the lower level warband. At my club will we start an campaign after the summer holiday and include some kind of level difference system.
So how was my first game?
We played the Genie in a bottle scenario.
My opponent hade a level 6 warband with several magical items so there was uphill battle for me.
I did some mistakes when I built the list, I included to few low tier minions to grab the treasure. But I managed to grabb 3 treasures any way.
Luckily did I not get the Genie because I could have have damaged it at all sins I don´t have any magical items yet. But my opponent slayed the genie and got 300 gold and 200 exp for it. So he clearly won this game.
We played for about 1,5 hours and this was an complete game and I was not fast sins it was my first game of Frostgrave. I had a nice smile after the game it was rewarding even if I loosed the game.
Here are some pictures of the game:
(I am very happy that my gaming club have all these nice scenery to use for these typs of games.)
Quick pictures of more Lead Adventure entries. It’s been a spur to paint up a large batch of fantasy figs, finish several small skirmish sets, and work on my photography skills. Round 10 is running now, so go look at the pretty brushwork.
With a big 4,000 points per side game coming up in roughly a month (my Savage Orcs versus and evil combo of Lizardmen and Beasts of Chaos) a little more “reorcanisation” was in order. Last month I finally managed to get my sweaty little grippers on a d…
