Zomtober Week 2

Posted on October 8th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

We’ve reached the second Sunday in October. If you don’t believe me, go and check a calendar. I’ll wait. 

As you’re still reading, I’ll assume you’re in agreement vis-a-vis the date (although wait until you realise how many weeks there are until

Christmas, that’s going to blow your mind) and therefore will be happy for me to present my work for the second week of Zomtober. 

Here it is!

Wave your crowbar in the air like you just don’t care

That’s right, I’ve just done a single survivor again, and I’m trying to hide that fact with unnecessarily verbose blog posting. 

He’s another plastic Wargames Factory fella. I dithered around what colour to do the jumpsuit, but in the end figured that a prisoner was more use than a mechanic for future games. He also doesn’t have a gun, which tends to be unusual with these models, so he’d fit nicely with the rioters I bought at great expense over six years ago and have yet to paint. 

So, I’ve met the rules of Zomtober for another week, and knocked another model off the to-do pile, both of which are good things. However, my real aim for Zomtober is to complete a secret project! That’s moving fairly nicely, so here’s a bit of a teaser – what could this be all about?

Concrete proof of something or other

One last thing then – my painting total for the year. With another survivor done, that can tick along ever so slightly…

Painted: 156
Acquired: 160

I’m now painfully close to having made no dent whatsoever. So that’s… good, maybe?

Anyway, stick around for next week, who knows what might happen?

AK47

Posted on August 14th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Last Thursday we had AK47 game. It was quite popular game in our club in the past and Campbell and I was very curious to give it a go, especially that in October in Goth we are going to have a big game. For those who don’t know what is AK47, it is very simple set of rules for wargaming the conflicts in Africa in 1960’s and 1970’s. There is several fraction to chose from starting from some tribal  finishing on superpowers of the contemporary world. The game was also great opportunity for me to use my forgotten 15mm collection of tanks. As you remember I have some tanks for 24th Uhlans and one tanks for Karpatian Uhlans. It was great, to finally use them on the table!
W ostatni czwartek mieliśmy grę z zasadami AK47. Zasady te były w przeszłości bardzo popularne w naszym klubie i Campbell i ja bardzo chcieliśmy je wypróbować, szczególnie że w październiku mamy z ich użyciem dużą grę w Goth’cie. Dla tych co ne wiedza co to jest AK47, są to bardzo proste zasady do konfliktów toczonych w Afryce w latach sześćdziesiątych i siedemdziesiątych. Dostępnych jest kilkadziesiąt frakcji, począwszy od plemiennych a na super potęgach ówczesnego świata skończywszy. Gra była też doskonałą okazją by wypróbować moją zapomniana kolekcję czołgów w skali 15mm. Jak zapewne pamiętacie mam kilka czołgów dla 24. Ułanów i jeden dla Ułanów Karpackich. Świetnie było je w końcu użyć na stole.
SCENARIO/SCENARIUSZ: Tim Watson
UMPIRING/PROWADZENIE GRY: Tim Watson, Jack Glanville
SCENERY/SCENERIA: SESWC
FIGURES & MODELS/FIGURKI i MODELE: Tim Watson, Jack Glanville, Bartek Żynda

1. Forces. Siły

DICTATOR FORCES/SIŁY DYKTATORA
(Campbell Hardie)
1 x 2 tanks
1 x 3 armoured cars
1 x 3 jeeps with HMG
2 x militia
COLONIAL SETTLERS TROOPS/SIŁY OSADNIKÓW KOLONIALNYCH
(Bartek Żynda)
1 x 3 tanks
1 x 2 tanks
1 x 2 guns on trucks
2 x infantry

2. The game. Gra.

Campbell as the defender was able to deploy most of his troops on the table with only one militia unit being as reinforcements. I rolled very badly and started game with only tanks on the table. That all game was my one big disaster. This time I think that I rolled ‘1s’ so many times, as I did not for my entire life, when Campbell had so many ‘6s’… Soon all my tanks were destroyed, my guns on trucks proved to be useless and only my infantry managed to do something. It kept one of the objectives, but it was not enough to win the game… Anyway I liked the rules very much and can not wait for the big game in October.
Campbell jako obrońca mógł wystawić większość swoich oddziałów na stole pozostając tylko z jedną milicją jako posiłki. Ja wyrzuciłem bardzo źle na początku i gry i zacząłęm ją tylko z moimi czołgami. Ta cała gra to była dla mnie jedna wielka katastrofa. Tym razem miałem tyle jedynek co nigdy w całym moim życiu, a Campbell tyle szóstek… Wkrótce wszystkie moje czołgi zostały zniszczone, działa na ciężarówkach okazały się bezużyteczne i tylko mojej piechocie udało się coś zdziałać. Utrzymało jeden z celów gry, jednak było to za mało by wygrać grę… Pomimo tego zasady bardzo mi się podobały i nie mogę się już doczekać na wielką grę w październiku.
Unfortunately now for about three weeks I would be not able to attend to the club, so no games reports for that period. Don’t be afraid, I got something instead  to publish.
Niestety przez najbliższe trzy tygodnie nie będę w stanie uczestniczyć w klubowych grach, więc przez jakiś czas nie będzie raportów z gier. Bez obaw jednak mam kilka innych rzeczy do opublikowania.
