One of the major thrusts of Soviet organisational and equipment change over this period was the neutralisation of the NATO ATGW threat as the the density of Anti Tank weapons had increased to a point where the Soviet Army felt that success was unlikly. This then drove their adoption of ERA and the significant increase in artillery systems over the period.

- Turret fit to Hull
- Fit of the front right Turret ERA (looking at the front)
- Removal from Sprue and fitting of external fuel barrel supports
I have yet to try this but separating the turret front right ERA block strip into probably 3 bits will result in a better fit.

Another of my summer reading volumes which I really enjoyed.
A manned mission to Mars goes wrong in an unusually strong sandstorm, resulting in 5 crew safely departing the Red Planet but leaving one of their team dead on the surface. Unfortunate…
Since my redundancy last year my reading output has dropped drastically. I rarely get a proper lunch break these days and this was usually the time when I’d get most of my reading done. Add to this the fact that with my new job I’m so knackered when I …
I’m a little late here, but I didn’t want to go with just an little unboxing for the new AoS Starter but rather a full review of it, the components, about the new rules fluff etc. So to do this it will take some time. So I will do this review in parts,…

I’ve been traveling a lot recently for work, which means I’ve been able to devote less time to the plastic toy soldiers. Miniatures gaming, wonderful as it is as a […]
If you are a wargamer, the chances are pretty good that you’ve read Red Storm Rising and Team Yankee at least once, probably more. This book deserves to be right next to them on the shelf; it’s that good.
This is the story of WW3 entirely…
This book follows on from its predecessor Fox on the Rhine (see here) so closely that I consider it Part 2 of the story as opposed to a sequel. In fact the opening sequences are a retelling of the last section of the first book but from a …
I’ve been looking for a decent weathering system recently, and on a whim grabbed a couple of jars of AK Interactive weathering pigment and fixative from Hobby City recently to try. At around $10NZ a jar, they’re not cheap, but after a little experimentation they seem like pretty good value. The ‘North African Dust’ I […]
Another OOP volume I managed to snag recently for the princely sum of 1 cent (plus 3.98 for postage!), this is a WW2 alternate history novel. Well written by two wargamers, they have a style similar to other late 1990s military style novels by La…
I bring my freshly painted Stormcast Eternals against Chris’ Khorne Bloodbound! Also check out our reviews and reflections on the release!
With the arrival of Age of Sigmar (see our exclusive advance preview here) White Dwarf has delivered something special this week. Just like what we saw back in the early 90s (free Space Marine, Wizard and Necron models!) we now finally carry on that tr…
Stop the press. We’ve got our hands on a copy of the new Age of Sigmar starter set, which isn’t out before next Saturday. We’ll take a close look at its contents, the miniatures, and the gaming materials. Click “more after the jump” for this exciting review which marks the beginning of a new era of Warhammer Fantasy.

The Race to the Swift by Brigadier R Simpkin recieved rave reviews across a range of professional military journals in America and Britain, for good reason, its an excellent treatise on manouvre warfare, focusing more on the operational rather than the…
We pack up our troubles by casting a strategic eye over The Plastic Soldier Company‘s new World War I board wargame, The Great War:
The post Plastic Soldier Company’s ‘The Great War’ boardgame: a video review appeared first on Model Dads blog.
I’d been looking about for this book for ages (since 2011 – see here) but without success. Then recently it popped up for free – or maybe I just found it – on my Kindle Unlimited account; got to be happy with that!
The book starts out in modern…
The AML -245 Armoured Car was developed in the late 50’s as a private venture, over 6,000 were produced and it has been fielded by over 50 Nations participating along the way in a range of Cold War conflicts including;South African Border War, Fal…
I purchased a selection of “tufts” from Gamer’s Grass a few months ago to try and spice up my desert bases. I’ve always been a bit wary of grass tufts after a bad experience with a crushed packet of unnatural looking grass from Army Painter. These tufts proved to be much better and in a […]
I am honoured to join the Tale of Painters as a contributor, and what better fitting way to do so than with the largest GW/FW model going… I welcome you to the Warlord Titan!
This is a YouTube video I made of the grand unveiling of the model, from first tape rip to last component showing what comes in the box. Are you ready for resin goodness?!
Hey guys, you probably all know how much I love transfers. So I couldn’t resist buying one of the new XL sized decal sheets for my Ultramarines. Read on to find out more about my thoughts about the new sheets, as well as size comparisons and large sized pictures.
