Delays

Activities are at a stand-still here at my hobby table as of late, due to 'Real Life' getting in the way, but it is for the good of all involved.  Way back last April, my oldest grandson moved in with me as he prepared to take college classes.  To make a long story short, he is heading back to live with his parents in Montana.  Although he will be missed, this is the best solution for everybody,

Of Space Knights and Superheroes.

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again. It's been two weeks since my last post but I want to try and keep things relatively interesting so I felt a longer gap than usual, was warranted.This week, has been very similar to last week... lots of work, lots of sleepless nights and lots of tiredness... but I had a birthday in there, so it wasn't all doom and gloom.I have now been on the wagon for over eight months and the time is flying by now. May is creeping up nicely and I will soon be able to enjoy a nice pint of ale again.At work, I am now (more or less) part of the furniture so I am working hard and people are starting to listen if they need to... which is nice. I still have some ice to break, here and there, but I'm getting there.Hobby time has been relatively slim but I have managed to get a few things done.First up is a converted superhero:Click the Pix!It started life as THIS Hasslefree Miniature and ended up as a new speedster for my little group of superheroes. A very simple conversion and it has worke

Great War Tommy

I found this hardback in the local charity shop yesterday for three quid. It's actually pretty good despite the silly 'Owner's Workshop Manual' format and obviously written by someone who really knows their stuff. I particularly like the emphasis on drill and training, together with a lot of detail on equipment and tactical aspects relating to trench warfare. If you find a copy and are interested in the subject matter, I can definitely recommend this book as a good all round treatment of soldiering on the Western Front, based on contemporary training  manuals, historical records and artefactual evidence.

Coveting thy neighbour's ass

Across the dusty plains, the rival armies faced off. The Sumerians, clad in their goat skins and led by their nobles in onager-drawn battle cars stared across at the army of Pharaoh who, fresh from the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt, was now the Lord of Two lands. The Sumerians were the aggressors, but Pharaoh had it in mind to capture a few of those ass-drawn chariots and see whether the concept would catch on in Egypt.Of course we can't suggest that Sumer and Old Kingdom Egypt ever fought, but this was the first viably historic clash for Lee's Sumerians. As both armies had buckets of low cost troops - including compulsory mediocre units - this was also the largest game we've played; 27 units each.The Egyptians deployed in one long line. Their right (upper left of the photo) was made up of levy medium swordsmen supported by javeliners and bowmen. In the centre were a block of heavy swordsmen with some more javelineers and bowmen, while on the left (upper right of the photo) were regular impact swordsme

Haul Report 165

Well, perhaps this was not so calm a week...Though in my defence, I can state that it was all ordered a while ago, or was a fantastic bargain...The first things I got for example, being the 2018 Chapter Approved and the MESBG The Hobbit armies book, where ordered beginning of december with our club group purchases, but I just didn't get round before to pick them up.That same evening I picked them up, a buddy of mine, Jo, asked if I was intrested in his last left overs of Lord of the Rings figures. I said sure, I like to have the Nazgul and Celeborn especially, but he just sold me the whole lot for 30 euro.  So yes, the painted Fellowship will go in my 'to trade' cabinet, but the other things are so worth it.From Wayland, I used my vouchers for a strong discount on the plastic version of The Fellowship, whom will be used in this years AHPC as well.The final arrival is the first of a bunch of cellphone covers for my v10, all shopped through AliExpress.  Costing me like a euro with free shipping, they

A bag full of heads and yet more Haitians.

A bag full of heads - Well you can imagine the postman's face when he enquired what it was.The opening moves of the Haitian campiagn is well underway and it's already serving it's purpose as it's got me painting again. Although the back log has just got worse.Trent Miniatures do a great range for the French in Haiti and with many of their blister packs coming with seprate heads you can build quite a variety into your units, it also means as the units build I can set about creating my own. Surprisingly Trent don't do a pack of a pack of spare black heads however a quick chat with Steve over at Arcane Scenery and a few days later enough heads to kit out several regiments.    Given the trouble Steve went to and how quickly he turned them around, it would be rude not to use the opportunity not to bolster the ranks before the first games kick off.The prep is done I just need to put paint to metal, with the various head swaps I should be able to field these extra's against the various factions.

Sorting Box

I've talked before about how I use the boxes from Privateer Press to sort my painting queue, but more and more often I'm also using them to sort my paints.Recently I was painting and having a hard time figuring out if and how much I had of Vallejo game Color Bonewhite. The answer, it turns out, is 1 mostly empty bottle (painting anything Menoth tends to wipe out a good chunk of my supply).So I turned to the Privateer Press boxes and simply started lining up my bottles and fitting them by brand and number.I have yet to figure out which Privateer Press cardboard boxes have the taller cardboard, as some of the boxes are tall enough to contain Vallejo dropper bottles fully upright. If I could get more of these, I'd be in a good place as they could then be stacked.As it is, some of my boxes have clearance above the dropper bottles, but most of them are just short enough for the bottles to jut out.I've used Really Useful Boxes for this before, but I've never found the perfect footprint and the plastic containers ty

Vanguard Veterans – Raven Guard

I now have a Vanguard Detachment of Raven Guard Vanguard Veterans to accompany my Astra Militarum forces into battle! These Raven Guard were painted by Red Eagle Studio for me. I’ve had Shrike for some time now. Painted by a friend who is now inactive in Warhammer, Resin Junkie. Now they are based on their dry mud bases and pinned – they are good to go. Never miss an article? Subscribe! Shrike is the perfect HQ choice to bring along with my Vanguard Veterans. Shrike lets them re-roll all misses for shooting and melee. He also lets them re-roll charge distances. […] The post Vanguard Veterans – Raven Guard appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.

Kill Team Game

Mr Steinberg and I had a game of Kill Team recently, my Elucidian Starstriders against his Astartes Marines. This was a simple take and hold objectives game with one in the middle and four more dotted around. Some nice large crates had Voidmaster Nitsch and the Assassin make good use of cover to keep out of line of sight ready to charge heroically into combat. The trouble with holding an objective is that some poor chap has to go stand next to it in the open. Voidmaster Nitsch was not quite close enough for a charge so he moved up to try soem ranged attacks. Meanwhile, Elucia Vhane charged into the Marines, she is a tough cookie so can take care of herself. The Starstrider Assassin failed to charge a couple of times, leaving the Starstriders to get a bit outnumbered. The Assassin was still not charging. The Starstriders did manage to hang on to some objectives and squeak a win, but it was very close. Kill Team is a nice game, a great opportunity to work on a nice small group of models.
