Finished! The Toecutter

Posted on July 12th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Painted during a one on one teaching session with my buddy Newton Potter aka the Painting Noob. After discussing his goals and chosen theme we decided on post-apocalyptic. Naturally we chose a model in football armor, with some slight modifications. It…

SAS / JTF2 Operators & Defender Series 1

Posted on July 10th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

A few more special forces operators to add to the collection, plus a venerable Land Rover Defender Series 1 for them to roll out in.The figures are from the Empress Miniatures SAS range, though I think they’ll stand in nicely for Canadian JTF2 as well….

Some Modern Vehicles & ‘What a Tanker!’

Posted on July 4th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I’ve been fairly busy with work, outdoor stuff and some home renos, but I’ve not entirely neglected my hobby desk and have managed to get a few more things added to my ACWII project.I figured that if I’m going to build a modern miniature collection, I …

Hello Ladies! Modern Female Operators

In the interest of equal opportunity, here are five female operators working towards gender-balancing my ACWII collection.Similar to the Russians from my previous post, all of these figures are from Spectre Miniatures. I quite like the mix of both…

I needed some Russians for my ACWII storyline and found that this great range from Spectre Miniatures fit the bill nicely.These are Spetsnaz (Russian Special Forces) in urban assault gear, ready to holiday in the Crimea, Syria or any other vulnerable l…

PWork Wargames Industrial Ruins Mat Review

I’ve started getting a real sweet-tooth for wargaming mats. They make your surface just so much more desirable to play on. The immersion isn’t going […]

Weekly Game Night has been taken up with another DnD adventure, courtesy of Other Pat, and a two trial runs of the cooperative, cyberpunk game HARDWIRED. (more on that, later) In the meantime, I’ve managed to (nearly) finish the next draft of ZONA ALFA and get some color on a second crew.

ZONA ALFA Crew

Posted on April 9th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Other Pat is currently running a one-of DnD dungeon crawl for our weekly game night, so the next couple weeks won’t feature many table top photo ops. In the meantime, I managed to get some color on the first of the ZONA ALFA demo figs. A Military crew with a Guide, a Medic, and a … Continue reading “ZONA ALFA Crew”

ZONA: The Chistoysk run.

Posted on January 31st, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Playing ZONA last night, our STALKER-flavored skirmish rules. Four STALKERs visited the town of Chistoysk near the Black Woods. The Fat Man wanted a cell tower in town repaired and was offering a wad of rubles to get it done. “Plus,” he said. “I hear one of the RMUs stashed a bit of gear in … Continue reading “ZONA: The Chistoysk run.”

New Terrain and ZP pictures

Posted on January 10th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Coming off the holiday break, last night’s game session was more shooting the breeze than miniature foes. Everyone was more intent on hanging out and chatting than getting serious about a game. That said we did a quick brawl that let me put two new terrain pieces on the table: a ruined apartment building and … Continue reading “New Terrain and ZP pictures”

Games that stick.

Posted on December 28th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve been thinking about games that have durability, replay-ability, longevity. As anyone familiar with hobbyists and the hobby industry knows, “Shiny” comes and goes. Indeed the hobby industry is built on ‘shiny’ and every gamer worth his salt has a lead/plastic pile that bears mute witness to the fickle siren song of new figs, a … Continue reading “Games that stick.”

Crew of the Astropolis, Shanspire and More

Earlier this year I backed the Astropolis II Kickstarter from Lead Adventure Miniatures. I’d passed on the first Astropolis Kickstarter and had been kicking myself ever since, so when the second one came up, I went all in for the megaload – Hypers…

A Prayer to Saint Strelok – Part 5

Posted on December 6th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Turned into a Five Act. What can I say?   Half the lights were out in the stairway. “The radio thing is down there?” Yuri tried to keep the reluctance out of his voice. Iosif switched his flashlight on. “Bottom floor.” The stark purple-white light carved his face in hard shadows, made him look ghoulish. … Continue reading “A Prayer to Saint Strelok – Part 5”

A Prayer to Saint Strelok – Part 4

Posted on December 6th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Iosif rummaged through the musty cardboard boxes lining the plywood shelves. “Special Project 57,” he said distractedly. “I was a Junior Researcher.” Yuri swigged from his canteen and nodded like he knew what the hell that meant. He spat tepid water and motioned for Iosif to continue, trying for the ‘strong, silent’ attitude – not … Continue reading “A Prayer to Saint Strelok – Part 4”

A Prayer to St. Strelok – part 3

Posted on November 29th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

At first Yuri thought Sasha had given him the headache; a clip and a half of her painful chatter followed by his mad dash through the swamp, gulping down bog stench and terror. But that was almost an hour ago and the throb was only getting worse. Every step deeper into the Chernya was like … Continue reading “A Prayer to St. Strelok – part 3”

A Prayer to St. Strelok, Part 2

Posted on November 25th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

  It was worse than he feared, the Wet Valley. Clouds of bugs, calf-deep mud, and the rotten, low tide stink… Gah! It was so rank it burned the hairs in his nose. Yuri pulled his scarf up so as to not puke breakfast. Visibility was crap in the tall grass and the hiss of … Continue reading “A Prayer to St. Strelok, Part 2”

A Prayer to St. Strelok. Part 1

Posted on November 20th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

A bit of STALKER fiction: A PRAYER TO ST. STRELOK. The tourists were whining again. Not even fifteen kilometers in and the eggheads are complaining: they are out of breath –  their feet hurt – the packs are heavy – when is the next stop so we can rest? Hadn’t he, Yuri Bonyev, always the … Continue reading “A Prayer to St. Strelok. Part 1”

Why STALKER?

Posted on November 10th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

As the setting for a skirmish wargame setting? Are you kidding? If you have ever played any of the STALKER PC games, you shouldn’t be asking that question. And if you haven’t played STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl, Call of Pripyat, or Clear Sky, you need to get on that. Right now. Dark, brooding, creeping dread … Continue reading “Why STALKER?”

MadMax34 Turning Templates from Things from the Basement

I have been playing around with the Mad Maximillian 1934 car combat rules for a little bit now as the past two posts can attest to. I am enjoying the game very much. One thing I wanted to do was … Continue reading

More on Mad Maximillian 1934, an ongoing project

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

In which I greatly expand on the Mad Maximillian 1934 material… Mad Maximillian 1934 (MadMax34) is a very small scale skirmish game set in a dystopic past– that’s right, the past, during the Depression.  The publisher, Mana Press, doesn’t flesh … Continue reading

Chechen Wars 28mm Kickstarter

Posted on October 21st, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Kickstarter… Yeah I know. Great idea – not always the best experience. Incessant delays, poor communications, long-winded excuses, sub- par products, partial fulfillment… I’m 50/50 Good to Bad projects over the past five years. And lately, I’ve given up altogether. It’s just not worth the hassle. Sure, nice figs/game/terrain but I’ll wait until they’re available … Continue reading “Chechen Wars 28mm Kickstarter”
