Drugi ochroniarz i cała grupa dowodzenia US Marines | Second bodyguard and full command team of US Marines

Posted on March 25th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Drugi z marines chroniących dowódcę moich oddziałów melduje się gotów do akcji. Trzeci żołnierz zespołu nie wchodzi bezpośrednio w interakcję z dowódcą i kolegą, czujnie tylko pilnuje ich boków, z bagnetem na broni.
Zauważyłem, że wspólne podstawki, taka jak ta na której stoi cały zespół dowodzenia, mają jednak niewielką wadę – wystarczyło kilkukrotne wyjęcie i ponowne włożenie całej gromadki w przeznaczone dla nich otwory, a malowanie brzegów podstawek powycierało się, w niektórych miejscach dość mocno. Muszę to jakoś skuteczniej zabezpieczyć.
Second of marines protecting commander of my US Marines forces is ready for action. Third member of the team is not directly interacting with commander or his teammate, he just stays vigilent, with a bayonet fixed and ready to impale any enemy daring to assault his position.
I noticed one thing about such sabot bases, as the one with my command team. Unfortunately, all it takes to wear off the paint on the edge of the base is to take out miniatures few times out of the base. I have to make it more durable…

Osłona dowódcy marines, żołnierz nr 1 | Marines commander’s team – soldier no 1

Posted on March 23rd, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Parę ostatnich dni spędziłem walcząc z Nurglem, walka wciąż trwa, jednak na blogu taki zastój, że coś wypadałoby pokazać. Padło na pierwszego z dwóch towarzyszy dowódcy moich marines. Wyciąga rękę po mapnik trzymany przez dowódcę, stąd taka, może nie najbardziej bojowa, poza. 
I spent last few days fightning with Nurgle, and the battle still rages on. Still, blog was updated so many days ago, that I wanted to post something. So, here it is, first of the two soldiers, part of the command team. This one is extending his hand for a commander’s map case… I agree, not very ‘combat-like’ pose…






Warlord Games: New Concord Strike Squad Firing & Probes Released

Posted on March 22nd, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Warlord Games: The Concord are the largest and most powerful Panhuman civilisation of the Seventh Age – having colonised almost a quarter of all the known human worlds in Antarean space.
The military arm of the Concord is organised and directed by a branch called the C3 (or Concord Combined Command) and they respond to threats with logical ruthlessness – dispatching heavily armed forces throughout Antarean space. Headed by Strike Commanders, C3 Strike Units form the bulk of Concord forces, which is why this week we are releasing a second strike squad and some probes to add variety to your Concord armies.

Warlord Games: New Thorakitai Medium Infantry Released

Posted on March 21st, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Warlord Games: The term Thorakitai – plural Thorakites – is used sparingly by Polybios to refer to Achaian and Seleucid troops of the mid-second century BC. That they were armoured is plain enough – Thorakitai means ‘cuirassier’ – and Polybios describes them as acting in support of lighter troops. 
It is likely they were armed with the long shield – the theuros – and in that respect they might be thought of as a more heavily armoured version of the Thureophoroi (shield bearers). Duncan Head – in Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars (Wargames Research Group 1982) – uses the well known tombstone of Salmas from Sidon to reconstruct the Thorakitai – and this is also the source we have used as the basis for our models.

Warlord Games: New: Finnish BT-42 Assault Gun!

Posted on March 20th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Warlord Games has recently released this nice Finnish BT-42 assault gun ready for the Eastern Front onslaught! 
With the Eastern Front action heating-up, and our latest Bolt Action Theatre Book, ‘Ostfront’ shipping out worldwide – all you Finnish commanders out there will be pleased to now have access to the BT-42 Assault Gun!
As the Second World War progressed, the Soviets were fielding better and better tanks. The Finnish Army, on the other hand, had to make do with a large number of captured tanks, which were for the most part lightly armoured and armed.

Dowódca moich marines | Commander of my US Marines force

Posted on March 18th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Nie ma oddziału bez dowódcy. Ktoś musi przyjąć odpowiedzialność za wykonanie zadania i powierzonych mu ludzi. Pomalowałem, w końcu, zespół dowodzenia dla swoich żołnierzy piechoty morskiej. W mojej rozpisce to doświadczony weteran, podporucznik i towarzyszący mu dwaj żołnierze. Miniaturka pokazana dziś to sam dowódca, jego zespół pojawi się na blogu w kolejnych wpisach.

Być może twarz tego żołnierza jest Wam znajoma – tak, tak, to bohater wpisu, w którym pokazywałem malowanie głów w skali 28 mm. Pozwoliłem sobie tutaj na pewną dowolność w dobraniu mu nakrycia głowy. Furażerka, którą widać, była nakryciem głowy typowo garnizonowym, nie mogę sobie przypomnieć ani jednego zdjęcia, na którym widać byłoby jakiegoś lederneka noszącego ją w warunkach bojowych. Mimo to zdecydowałem się użyć tej głowy z zestawu Warlorda, jednocześnie trocząc do pasa hełm. Ot, jankeska niefrasobliwość;)
Pewne zdziwienie może też budzić poza, w jakiej skleiłem dowódcę i trzymany przez niego mapnik. Całość zespołu wstawiłem w podstawkę sceniczną, na której żołnierze tworzą pewną scenkę…


No military unit is complete without its commander. Someone must take responsibility for getting job done and for soldiers. So, I finally decided to paint commander for my growing US Marines force. In my army list, command team consists of veteran second lieutenant and two further veteran soldiers. Miniature visible next to this note is obviously commander itself, his comrades in arms will be shown in further entries.

You may recognise face of this particular miniatures. Yep, that’s the one I used in my ‘Painting 28mm scale face’ tutorial. I deliberately used the weakest head from the whole boxed set. Weakest as per ‘usability’, not ‘worst sculpt’. The thing is, side cap. or overseas cap, as it was known in the Corps, visible here was worn where wearing service uniforms. Not really suitable for combat overalls depicted on miniatures. To bo honest, I can’t even remember a single real-life photo, showing side caps being worn in combat. Despite this I decided to use this particular head – but my commander still wears his combat helmet (suspended on the belt). You can call it Yankee insouciance;)

Pose itself seems a bit strange too – especially map case in the hand of the commander. Here the answer is simple – all three miniatures from the command team will share common, bigger base, and poses of miniatures work together (or, at least, it was my goal).

Osłona dla miotacza ognia | Second part of the flamethrower team

Posted on March 12th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Czas w końcu pokazać drugiego członka zespołu miotacza ognia piechoty morskiej USA z czasów II wojny światowej. Żołnierze ci, chroniący swojego kolegę uzbrojonego w miotacz płomieni, wyposażeni byli w strzelby Winchester M12, doskonale sprawdzające się w walce na niewielkich dystansach. W przeciwieństwie do swojego kolegi, odlanego z metalu, jego ochroniarza zrobiłem z części plastikowych, dostępnych w zestawie piechoty morskiej produkcji Warlord Games. Różnica jakości jest dramatyczna, na korzyść plastików oczywiście. Nie żałuję nawet, że w zestawie armijnym US Marines brak metalowego strzelca ze strzelbą, dostępnego w zestawie, w ramach którego można nabyć zespół miotacza ognia. Zdecydowanie wolę swoją wersję plastikową.
W tle fotografii “z pola walki” widać początki mojej stołowej dżungli. Poświęcę jej jedną z kolejnych notek na blogu.

It is high time to finally show second part of the US Marines flamethrower team. Second marine was armed with Winchester M12 shotgun, excellent weapon for fightning over the small distance, usual for flamethrowers. Contrary to his team fellow, this miniature is made from plastic bits, taken from the boxed set released by Warlord Games. The difference in quality is astounding (plastics are much, much better). The difference is so drastic, in fact, that I don’t even want to buy a metal version of this shotgun armed marine, available in a “metal” flamethrower set released by Bolt Action publisher – I much prefer my own version.

You can see first “jungle patches” made for my games in the background of “combat” photos. I will show them in one of the future blog entries.
