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.
Winged Hussar was created in a laboratory experiment by HYDRA. Franciszek "Frank" Danielkiewicz was a member of the 10th Motorized Cavalry Brigade - the Polish Black Brigade. After his capture in 1939, an early experimental prototype super soldier serum was injected into Frank to test its effects. The serum worked well, and gave Frank super strength, speed, and stamina. HYDRA immediately froze Frank in an cryogenic tank, where he remained until his recent release. He now fights for the freedom and honor of his homeland Poland, and well as for all those who value freedom and democracy.S.H.I.E.L.D. quickly recruited Winged Hussar and provided him with some of its most advanced technology. Wotjek 3000 is a meta-physical spirit projection - a spectral bear, and Winged Hussar's sidekick, (don't say ghost - most ghosts can't rip you from limb to limb with one swipe of a claw). Winged Hussar can summon Wojtek 3000 via his spectral projector console which is part of h
For my Forgotten Heroes 2019 submission, I present Winged Hussar and his meta-physical spirit projection - Wotjek 3000:I will soon post the origin stories and the character sheets for Winged Hussar and Wotjek 3000 for use in my custom 15mm superhero ruleset, (loosely based on Flames of War rules).I'd like to thank the Carrion Crow’s Buffet website for hosting this year's Forgotten Heroes event. It was a fun event and provided a great encouragement for me to create and paint up a superhero!
After almost four years of working on them off and on, this weekend I finally completed my Viet Cong Local Forces Infantry Battalion for Flames of War: 'Nam.Since I started the force, the new 'Nam book was released which changed some options. I custom created a sniper model that can't be used, and a few of the command stands are no longer needed. In all, with off-table artillery and Guerilla Booby Traps, I can assemble just over 50 points under the new rules. I built the machine gun nests out of toothpicks and greenstuff, but most of the miniatures are a mix of Battlefront's miniatures and the Viet Minh offerings from Eureka Miniatures. Although the Viet Minh miniatures are not ideal for this time period, I found that they sized better for the 15mm scale look I was going for, and they mix in with Battlefront's official miniatures well enough.The Eureka miniatures are more based on the traditional pith helmet, and I wanted to go more with the look in this photo, as opposed to the conical leaf hat
Battlefront released The Great War supplement for Flames of War back in 2014, but I only recently completed painting my two FT-17 tanks for my French "Polish Army in France" army.The FT-17 was a French light tank with its armament within a fully rotating turret - many consider it the world's first modern tank.With the upcoming new Great War book getting released in March, I'm hoping to complete the rest of my French "Polish Army in France" army soon....
In the spirit of "Tanksgiving", I wanted to post my recently completed T-55s for Team Yankee. There are thirty-one of them in number, including a model to act as a command model. I previously shared my attempts to make a JNA (Yugoslavian) force for Team Yankee (using the rules for the East Germans).The T-55 tanks are from Plastic Soldier Company. In general I prefer Battlefront's plastic tank offerings, but back when I purchased these their plastic T-55s were not yet released. I primed the tanks with Goblin Green from Army Painter, and used Army Painter Dark Tone which greatly muted the bright green. The tracks were first primed with the green, then hit on the top and bottom with black primer. This saved me a ton time by not having to hand-paint the tracks (except for weathering). I then painted on the details before lightly drybrushing on dust and dirt using a light brown color.I also completed some BTR-60s a few weeks back and now almost have a fairly good-
A few years ago, just before Halloween, I led my first 15mm Superhero gaming session. It was called Rise of the Dead and used a number of zombies from Rebel Miniatures.Herr Kürbiskopf has completed his dark ritual in an abandoned church near a small village, raising soldiers from the dead to be his minions. Nick Fury has quickly assembled a small team of new superheroes to confront Herr Kürbiskopf and his undead horde. The mission: to protect the villagers, stop the zombies, and defeat Herr Kürbiskopf. The superhero team needed to call in some US Army (NPC) reinforcements, but the village was saved from the zombie horde and Herr Kürbiskopf was defeated! Along the way, some Galactic A-Holes joined the fight....Herr Kürbiskopf will return in... "The Dead Rise Again"!
I previously shared my attempts to make a JNA (Yugoslavian) force for Team Yankee (using the rules for the East Germans). I recently completed the 15 BTR-60s, including a model to act as a command model.The BTR-60 transports are from Battlefront Miniatures. I primed them with Goblin Green from Army Painter, but primed the wheels black before gluing them on. Army Painter Dark Tone was used to mute the bright green. I painted on the details before lightly drybrushing on dust and dirt using a light brown color.A force of BTR-60s in the JNA is ahistorical and I received a ton of information about this from nikolas93ts in a post on The Miniatures Page - his father had served in Yugoslavia and was knowledgeable about the subject:Only two BTR-60PB were acquired by the JNA (for trial purposes) in 1967, and it was never adopted. A certain number of BTR-60PU was acquired with SA-9 Gaskin system as battery command vehicle. Another vehicle, TAB-71 (a Romanian-made variant of BTR-60 with the petrol engine) was accepte
