Bretonnia, część 13 - Dwanaście wielkich bitew, część 5. Szturm Parravonu.

Armia Gillesa ruszyła na północ, w stronę Parravonu, jednak gdy dotarła na miejsce, piękne miasto leżało w ruinie. Ściany ostatnich stojących budynków waliły się właśnie pod uderzeniami głazów ciskanych ze wzgórz przez olbrzymy, natomiast na murach miasta wrzała walka z bandami goblinów noszących symbol Uciętej Ręki. Książę Agilgar ruszył do bitwy na grzbiecie Glorfiniala, swego wiernego pegaza, jednak nie był w stanie powstrzymać goblinów przed wdarciem się do miasta. W krytycznym momencie bitwy szarża konnicy Gillesa rozbiła hordę zielonoskórych, ratując Parravon przed rzezią i zniszczeniem.ciąg dalszy nastąpi...(a wszystkie wpisy fluffowe opublikowane dotychczas dostępne są w czytelni).Będzie mi miło jeśli pozostawicie po sobie komentarz i udostępnicie ten post. Jeśli chcecie postawić mi kawę przycisk DONATE znajduje się poniżej.I will be happy if you leave comments and share this post with friends.

More FWC reinforcements

The big benefit of 6mm is that it paints rather smoothly, and this post I boosted some extra models for my Emperor's Children.After the previous "necessary" batch of Predators and Land Raiders, this batch makes for some nice variation, but not necessary reinforcements per se.The first models, painted in the "pre heresy scheme" of 30k style, are a Spartan (who will be used as a Land Raider as well, but adds some miniature variation in the force, and go to battle in smaller games where I field only one them) and a Sicaran who will get the AA SPG role of the Marine Corps list.Two Razorbacks, as above also 3D prints, are added as well, one with the anti infantry turret and the other with the anti tank one, to have some more cheap support tanks (cheap with Marines being relative of course) for the force.The final addition for this post are three bases of Marines, but this time painted up in the pre Heresy scheme as well, in order to have more variation from the pink and black stands of my regular force.Now the nex

The Aeldari

Now then,I collected an Eldar army way back in the early 90s when I was but a youth. Since restarting my 40k addiction last year I have tarted them up somewhat. There were lots of broken models, all chucked in a box, and left for years. Ive always liked the models so it seemed a shame.The mainstay of the army are of course the guardian squads. Mine are made up of very old metal miniatures from the late 80's and early 90's.Supported by war walkers and a wraith lord.Leading them in battle are the farseer and warlock conclave.Of course no Eldar or Aeldari as they are called these days, would be complete without Aspect Warriors. The most common type are of course the Dire Avengers, led by their Exarch.Next up we have the Fire Dragons. Led by their Exarch with his fire pike.Now we come to one of my favourite units, the Warp Spiders. Swooping Hawks, useful troops, but fragile.Striking Scorpions. My largest Aspect squad, useful as bodyguards for my characters or to be left lurking in the shadows, waiting t

Back to the Brushes 234

Another progress update on the 30 Days, 30 Miniatures painting challenge currently ongoing. This time only two figures completed.Firstly, a Moor from Gripping Beast that is needed to complete a stand of heavy infantry. This figure was originally started earlier this year and has just languished behind everything else.Next, is a plastic skeleton from Citadel or Games Workshop or whatever they are now branded.Originally started in last year's AHPCIX, it wasn't finished before the end of the challenge. Might have been supersition as it would have been the 13th of its lot, might not have. So its finished now and regardless of when it was finished it will always be the 13th of its lot.Day 19 - 9 figures completedBetter get a move on as time is marching on.Cheers for now

A Spy in the Sky: A Photographic Reconnaissance Spitfire Pilot in WWII

Many stories abound of the daring exploits of the RAF's young fighter pilots defying the might of Hitler's Luftwaffe, and of the dogged courage of the men of Bomber Command flying night after night over Germany in the face of flak and Focke-Wulfs, yet little has been written about the pilots who provided the key evidence that guided the RAF.

Enfield in the Great War

The Royal Small Arms Factory in Enfield was famous for producing the Lee Enfield .303 Rifle, the standard issued rifle provided to all infantry soldiers in the British Army during the course of the First World War.Indeed, the factory was so prestigious that King George V visited it in April 1915, and by the end of the war it had produced more than 2 million rifles, with some 6000 per week being produced at its peak. All of this achieved by a workforce of more than 9000.On Saturday, 7 July 1917 an air raid took place over Enfield that involved a large number of German Gotha aircraft. They were met by local anti-aircraft batteries, who did their best to thwart the Germans' attack. Sadly, the raid resulted in the death of local resident, Edith Halse, the sister-in-law of Lieutenant-Colonel Halse, who was stood in the front garden of her home, watching the German aircraft over head.She was actually killed by falling shrapnel from British anti-aircraft gun fire and became the only resident of Enfield to be killed
