Hello everyone!I invite you to the first review of a set of models that I received from Samuel from SABRE Miniatures. today.The Spanish company specializes in the production and sale of 28 mm resin half-size models (there are more nations in the pre-production!) stylized in the Middle Ages, and more specifically the Hundred Years War between England and France.The models look very good and preparing them for painting does not require a lot of time.In the ever expanding range of SABRE Miniatures we have various infantry formations of halflings and a fantastic cavalry of a small people on ... donkeys :)Check it yourself:http://sabreminiatures.com/index.phphttps://www.facebook.com/SabreMini/And as part of the storytelling, I invite you to read the text on the second theme (the first Battle on the Green Fields) of the most important battle of Tolkien's hobbits, the Battle over the Water. The battle took place on November 3, 3019 TA (Third Age) in the Shire area. It was the
Last Thursday we had Chain of Command game. This time we set up the game somewhere in Belgium, where British and Polish troops get attacked by German reinforcements.W ostatni czwartek mieliśmy grę z zasadami Chain of Command.

Hey! I would like to show you a group dedicated to the Malifaux system. Thirteen models, including quite a big monster The climate of Malifaux can be loved or hated. I’m somewhere in the middle. Assembling process is a nightmare and without it I would find the whole process of painting pleasant. Seriously – the person who designed and divided the parts into frames should go to hell, because I haven’t seen such a bad process with any other manufacturer. Most of the stands are resin, but some of them are handmade and fortunately do not stand out from the resin equivalents. Below you will find some additional photos. I hope you like the models Commission painting – email@example.com
Hi All,Well I got my first game in with the local group, and got my ass handed to me. It was fun though. Two things. Vehicles are powerful! I don't think I have ever played a game of RT with combat vehicles before. The few times I've seen robots I've been fortunate to be on the opposite side of the table.I also made the decision to "roleplay" them as cocky, gung ho types. So, although they tried to stay out of sight, they got caught running around in the open and were... I'll let the comic explain it.More photoshop filters and added some effects in photoshop as well. The source photos were a tad blurry, I didn't spend any time sharpening this time around. So there's that.So, what did I learn? I need some kind of vehicle with heavy firepower. I have a Leman Russ built up, but not sure exactly how to stat it up for RT or if I can afford it by jettisoning the command section. I have a sentinel or two that I could build. I need to check the cost, but they are fairly affordable. I also have those plastic flyer kit
A few more Star Wars figures were finished up this week.First up are four sand troopers from an expansion. Two got sand bases and two got indoor bases.There were also two heroes on rubble bases. A tech lady and a dude with a big gun.Painting was to the images on the cards.Up next: More figures, including some Gamorrean guards and some Storm troopers with jet packs (?).
Haven't been updating on work in progress of late and really should be doing so more often.This year has seen a major rebasing project start with all the Late Romans and allies being rebased for ADLG. As expected this has created a few gaps here and there which has resulted in the following. Heavy infantry from Gripping Beast that are so very nearly complete. A bit of work on the trousers and the spears and its off to the basing queque. These six troopers will complete two stands of heavy swordsmen protected that are core units for the Late Romans.Next up is a Hun horse archer fromGripping Beast. This figure will complete a stand of light cavalry bow giving five of these once the rebasing is done. Whilst fragile units these are key to the Hun army and will stand as allies in the Late Romans and Goths.Next, a mounted horn blower from Foundry which ironically have tried to sell on several occassions and failed to do so. This figure will join one of the command stands currently being worked on.Three mo
Well it's been a long time in the waiting but finally the kingsleypark Desert Rats arrived at the sleepy wadi known as Hel-Me Boab, somewhere in the Western Desert. Their long R & R was about to come to an abrupt end, however, when the Dastardly Afrika Korps decided to break their duck and challenge the gallant Brits for the right to be top dog in the Cabin.Except we weren't in the Cabin. Neil, Gary and I had decided to sally forth and set up battle in the home of the Angus Wargames Club, Forfar. Stevo should have been there as well but he was ill (apparently) so whilst Gary was left to fight a surreal German Civil War with his late War Germans against Lindsay's Early War Germans, Neil and I set the scene for a more historical match up. Except Neil's D.A.K aren't painted yet (well not his infantry) so I had to bring my D.A.K along to bolster Neil's vehicular contribution of his Panzer IV G, 2 trucks and a turretless Puma which he had to masquerade as a truck as his truck pusher (Kev) had failed
Good morning!Today is the weekend and I am inviting for a new entry on DwarfCrypt! It will be green and in the climate of my favorite oldhammer (and middlehammer, for which my greatest expansion into Warhammer was). Recently, my long-awaited package from Warmonger Miniatures, in which there were a few orcs, to my emerging band of green brutes. And in this enthusiasm I painted one of them. I added excellent shields from Rotten Factory to the original model (and the previous orc).I cordially invite you!Orcs dont establish kingdoms or states as people do. Still, there are lands that are under total control of the Orcs or their smaller cousins - the Goblins. Most Orcs distinguish between two types of land: "green" and "other pieces". The more ambitious warlords see the world more accurately: "my green", "green what will be my" and "other pieces".Orcs and Goblins are the most numerous in the Badlands. There are also other areas in which they remai
A sample of some of the dirty trick cards. This is an idea I had for moving games a little quicker in Max 34. I’m running a big game at Scrum Con and might have to have the traditional “fast car goes first” initiative take a bad seat to a more traditional method I’ve used for many skirmish games– it derives from the Sword and the Flame. The idea is to give everyone a number, put the numbered cards in a deck by themselves, and the dirty tricks in another deck. Every turn place one dirty trick in the action deck and shuffle them all together. The person whose number is called AFTER the dirty trick is pulled can utilize it for either themselves or for a target player. Details are on the card. Download HERE.
Day 49 of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, and we're past the halfway point.I'm just past the halfway mark on my own 500 point target as well, so all going according to plan, I might just squeak through...So what have I done since the last update? Let's take a look!The brutish Manticore, a staple of the medieval bestiary - a Reaper Bones figure which will give any band of adventurers pause.A Reaper Bones 'Avatar of Resilience', a humanoid rhino, now repurposed as a Broo with the addition of goat horns and weeping sores. Broos are the chaotic bringers of disease in Greg Stafford's world of Glorantha, the setting of the wonderful RPG RuneQuest.The Durinhold Tectonics, a Blood Bowl Sevens team yet to make it to the top-flight leagues. But they're a plucky lot and will undoubtedly get some reinforcements soon! These were old Blood Bowl figs from the 1990's, so the basing scheme was an homage to the Oldhammer Era. A moment of silence, please, as we remember Citadel Goblin Green, the most popular basing col

For the last Thursday game, I asked Alasdair to introduce me to the Lord of the Rings wargaming. That was something I was always wanted to try. Alasdair together with his son Alexander, prepared the game with War of the Rings rules. So we had Rohan versus Isengard battle. Na ostatni czwartek namówiłem Alasdaira by wprowadził mnie w świat wargamingu związanego z Władcą Pierścieni. To było coś, czego zawsze chciałem spróbować. Alasdair wspólnie z swoim synem Alexandrem, przygotowali grę z zasadami War of the Rings. W ten sposób mieliśmy bitwę pomiędzy siłami Rohanu i Isengardu.SCENARIO/SCENARIUSZ: Alexander WatsonUMPIRING/PROWADZENIE GRY: Alexander WatsonSCENERY/SCENERIA: SESWCFIGURES & MODELS/FIGURKI I MODELE: Alasdair Watson1.

Pride from The Others, published by CMON. Painted for my sister and brother-in-law for their collection of board games. The sculpture is made of a rather soft, plastic material. The treatment of this material was a bit problematic. Most of the parts fit well but there were some mistakes done during the casting process, which I did not clean up to the end. My objective was to paint it as soon as possible to the tabletop level, so I did not have time for patience. The quality of the model is surprisingly high - many interesting details. Someone more talented who had time could certainly get more out of this figure. Nevertheless, I think that it worked out pretty well for the day of work. In 80 percent I painted this with an airbrush - there was an opportunity to use my new H&S Evolution Al Plus airbrush. I am slowly mastering this tool. After switching from H&S Ultra, I see the difference mainly in time needed for cleaning / changing the paint in the reservoir. It is much more less time consuming.
For the mercenaries bonus round, I decided on not picking a force that fights for money or lands.No, these fight for gaining their eternal peace!When Rohan mustered to aid Gondor, Aragorn and his companions went to look for reinforcements in the most unlikiest of places. The oathbreakers of Dunharrow, traitors of the previous age, linger here in eternal torment.So they where made a deal: fight for their king and regain their freedom.I painted up as such 20 warriors, who came in the recent Battle of Pelennor Fields set, and led by the King of the Dead.That results in 21 models, and a nice bonus entry for the tally...
I worked up a jet pack version of Major Bludd so that my Air Vipers could have a personality leader with them.Out on patrol while the Weather Dominator does it’s thing.More to come,Doc
