"Perturbers, Assemble!"

Nick Fury recognized that a new post-Avengers superhero team was needed after the events of Avengers: Endgame.A team that could handle important, but less universe-impacting threats than greater superhero teams.A team that would compliment and work alongside The Repulsers,...I introduce to you... The Perturbers!Winged Hussar has been chosen to lead this new team, (and he comes with his sidekick Wotjek 3000).  Remaining members of the team were recruited from a list of occasional allies of The Repulsers, including Taffy Man, Bronze Basilisk, and The Legacy.

Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 18

They headed east across the top of Europe rather than cut back through Arabia. Kamal figured that his new companions would be too obviously recognised as ‘crusaders’ in his homeland. His plan instead was to cut across the top of the world into China and then take a ship down the coast to Pan Pan. […]

Dispatches from the front II

I bloody hate cavalry...… I have been sitting looking at the same cavalry unit for the best part of three weeks, if I can't break the back of them tomorrow they might have to be bounced from the queue for a while. I am not sure if it's the mass of horse flesh or the fact that I have glued the riders on first, something that I don't normally do in the painting process. Do we all have a touch of OCD when it comes to painting? Meanwhile we had a crack at Osprey's latest card game, a two player game with a number of missions from D-Day to play through, you use your cards to grab the initiative and use your squads to grab objectives I must admit it was a real blast and felt very realistic, very much a band of brothers feel to it, the early missions contain only rifle squads, but later missions introduce MG's Mortars and snipers.MG's are great at pinning troops, mortars are flaming nasty and you need to get a move on once the targeting round lands. Stick and move is the name of the game.Send your scouts out to cl

Warcry

I know it's been a long time since I've posted. I've not been idle. In fact, I've painted more in the last few months than the rest of the year. I just haven't taken the time to take photographs or sit down to write about my projects.Warcry is the new(ish) skirmish game from Games Workshop. The mechanics of the game are easy and fast. Possibly too simple if you are a fan of granular sets like Mordheim and Necromunda, but I've been enjoying narrative games more than crunchy ones these days. Despite the rules lite nature of the mechanics, there is still a good level of tactical choices during a battle. I'm not going to go into full review mode (there are plenty of those on the web), but I do like the game.More than that, I LOVE the new models. My first warband is the Unmade..These are just a few of the lads. I'm working on the terrain now and I'll post some more photos (no, really) when I can set up a proper table.One of the things I didn't like about the game was that the cards for the models only include

More New Malifaux

A few more "wargaming standard" Malifaux models have made it through the painting pile. They are OK on table, but these close-ups are a tad unforgiving. First up are Joshua Fitzsimmons and his Saboteurs - M&SU agents who focus on the Union's more, ahem, "destructive" goals and are in the Backdraft box set thats now been sort of replaced in M3e. Joshua has a long scarf and a bit of a mad look about him, so a Tom Baker-style Dr Who colourscheme seemed about right. The pair of Saboteurs could easily have been quite dark, but I went with a green khaki coat to give them a bit of the "1984" about them. One is modelled with long flowing hair, so she's ended up with some radical anarchist style purple locks as well to keep the theme going.Fitzsimmonds has a placard too - mine borrows the placard imagery from the seminal 1986 Billy Bragg "difficult third album" Talking with the Taxman about Poetry, drawing obvious parallels between Fitzimmons ideologically indistinct place in the Malifaux MS&am

Rebels & Patriots: Tell Them Where We Died...

Back to the North-West Frontier down BIG with George and I deciding to use Rebels and Patriots again, but picking one of the scenarios from The Men Who Would Be Kings - Seek and Destroy!Part of George's Pathan force set up in a village, which the Imperial force was tasked to destroy before Pathan reinforcements descended from the hills...The Imperial Field Force comprised of the 92nd (Gordon) Highlanders, 15th Sikhs, 13th Bengal Lancers and the newly painted 4th Gurkha Rifles. No, I don't know why I didn't take any artillery...As the Imperials slowly advance on the village, the call went out and Pathans from neighbouring valleys rushed to the aid of the beleaguered villagers...As the Imperials advanced they came under fire from a unit of Pathan Light Infantry on their flank.... Inflicting a couple of casualties on the 92nd Highlanders, although losing one of their own...The Bengal Lancers rashly decide to deal with the pesky rifles and Charge them, losing two lancers and gaining a Disorder

Crocodile Kit Bash Completed

I've now finished the assembly of the Churchill Crocodile, so it's ready for painting. The Airfix flame fuel trailer went together quite easily despite some fiddly bits and I've left it detachable from the tank so that it's not damaged during games and can be safely stored away. I also glued he flame projector on upside down at first (d'oh!) but I've now corrected it, in case you spotted it in the photo. I now need to build the PSC Sherman Firefly and possibly a Sherman Crab, if I can summon up the courage to tackle the S and S white metal conversion kit.

Meet and greet...

Hoi,As I told you all a while ago the family and myself visited the UK during the summer. We stayed in Canterbury for two weeks and visited the surroundings. Margate and Hern Bay were interesting places to see and London is always a thrill, specially when going to Hamleys with two small lads...Anyway, one of the absolute highlights of the holidays for me was going to Rye in order to hook up with the legendary Lord Awdry of "28mm Victorian Warfare" fame. We met up at the railway station and immediately set out to find a suitable pub to catch up. We had some excellent pints and refreshments as well as some brilliant discussions, both about the hobby and work, us being in the same line of work and all.Rye is a brilliant little town and we even had time to visit the local toy soldier shop, Soldiers of Rye, run by an excellently entertaining gentleman who casts and paints his own products and sells some nice books. He even gave us some solid vacation booking advice as well as some nice personal stories.Some ex

Yet more Ghostbusters

More Ghostbuster figures rolled off the painting line. I'll start wth Stay Puft. Big but nice and easy. I looked at painting on some burn marks (lovely examples online) but decided against it.I finished off all of the rank-and-file ghosts, this time in blue.I've got one more boss ghost, four ghostbusters and Ecto-1 left to do (painted, just need a wash). I also hauled out a bunch of Zombies for Zombtober and spray-primed them. These are from one of the Zombicide expansions I bought last year. I'm going to start with the regular Zombies and then maybe to the radioactive ones with a green wash?
