Monolith Con 2019 - Get to the Shuttle

Hi All,Like all the best trilogies, this one had three parts. My squad proved to be inept yet again. I'm sensing a pattern.Enjoy!I set myself up in cover and then the other side got all their activations first, so I was immediately suppressed and couldn't do anything. This essentially continued for the whole game. Oh well. Time to start working on another unit and come back to these guys later.Next up: "Space Hulk: Exterminate"

[EN/PL] Anno Domini 1666: The City Guards #1 / Strażnicy Miejscy #1

Welcome!I invite you for another entry dedicated to the models for the game Anno Domini 1666 today.Initially, I was going to put a spot on and paint D'Artagnan and finish the band of Royal Musketeers, but I liked the metal minis of the city guardsmen from Vienna so much that today the first two of them.       I think that they can also successfully play the role of Guardsmen of any Swedish, German, Polish city..And not only in historical games but also fantasy. The models are fantastic!Other entries of Anno Domini 1666:Anno Domini 1666. Game inboxing.

Pirates! Piraci!

Last Sunday I took the part in the game to memorialize our friend Hugh, who tragically died three years ago. For the game, we used the pirate rules, his last work with some Bill Gilchrist amendments. Especially for that game, I painted my Pirate Captain and soon I'm going to create a little band of maybe 15 men plus a ship. Once again we all gathered in Gothenburg in Prestonpans.W ostatnią niedzielę, wziąłem udział w grze mającej na celu uczczenie pamięci naszego tragicznie zmarłego ponad trzy lata temu przyjaciela, Hugha. Do gry użyliśmy zasad do pirackich gier, które były jego ostatnią pracą z pewnymi dodatkami stworzonymi przez Billa Gilchrista. Specjalnie na tą grę pomalowałem mojego kapitana piratów a w przyszłości zamierzam jeszcze dodać mu z 15 ludzi i jakiś okręt. Ponownie zebraliśmy się w Gothenburgu w Prestonpans.Remembered my last game with those rules I decided to be like Switzerland. Slowly collecting money from luting, trying to stay neutral as long as it possible and fight only when there is no

Western wagons and Pirate's Captain. Zachodnie wozy i piracki kapitan.

Small painting job finally finished. Three elements only this time. Two western type wagons in 15mm for my Commonwealth and Swedish armies. Both from Wargamer. The third was my Pirate's Captain. That one is from Warlord Games. Now, I need to do an annual check of all my figures and after that, I can start a new project!Mała praca malarska w końcu skończona. Tylko trzy elementy tym razem. Dwa zachodnie wozy dla moich armii Rzeczypospolitej i szwedzkiej. Oba od Wargamera. Trzecią jest piracki kapitan. Ten z kolei jest od Warlord Games. Teraz czas na coroczną kontrolę wszystkich moich figurek i po tym można zacząć nowy projekt.

Monolith Con 2019 - The Great Dunger Round Up

Hi All,In our next series of games we focused on the great Dunger herds of New Texas. The first scenario was to follow the herd on their migration and try to catch as many as we could. Bulldog made special vehicle templates and the board scrolled as we chased them.Cheetor and Airbornegrove supplied the Dunger herd, funky looking models from Ramshackle Miniatures.Sorry about the double picture of the crashed vehicle. I didn't notice it until near the end of the process and didn't feel like reformatting the comic. I feel like this comic feels a little drier than the game actually was, I probably didn't take the right pictures.Next up: "There's Dung in them thar hills!"

Zeds, Naps and gangsters

A bit of a job lot of figures today. First up are the last of the zombies for awhile, I hope. There were some of the larger guys. Judging by the neck lanyards, I would say civil servants who just got layoff notices?There were also three regular toxic zeds plus an old heroclix guy who has been lingering on my paint table for awhile.I also finished of the gangsters from pulp alley. Some very well armed fellows!Bruce had me over last week to try out some changes to his yet-unnamed Napoleonic game. I got crushed but, in losing so badly, we discovered a few issues to clean up.Up next: we have the club this week with lunar wars and some WW2 crossfire on offer. I hope to move some more figures, including a building to completion.

Monolith Con 2019 - Defense of the Orknodrome

Hi All,Maj Guiscard told us that we needed to play at least two games to get the feel of Aeronautica Imperialis. Who were we to argue?Since the Orks had lost the first game they would be defending the Orknodrome, their interplanetary attack vessel, from the Emperor's finest pilots.I personally had a much harder time in this game getting the enemy in my sites.It was still loads of fun. Enjoy!Next up: "The Great Dunger Round Up!"

Hello everyone!I invite you to a meeting with the next knight from Claymore Castings today- a company specializing in the production of metal models of medieval knights with an emphasis on the Hundred Years War.The models look great as I mentioned before. Some designs are unbelievably dynamic, and castings cannot be faulted.If you have not yet dealt with Claymore Castings models, I honestly recommend them as knights for historical or fantasy games (just awesome Bretonians for WFB!)Claymore Castings FBClaymore Castings SITEThe first four (and three already painted) armed men will be included in fellowship of the Polish nobleman and knight Mikołaj Powała from Taczew.More about this one of the most famous Polish knights in one of the next entries!I invite you!Witam wszystkich!Dziś zapraszam na spotkanie z kolejnym rycerzem od Claymore Castings - firmy specjalizującej się w produkcji metalowych modeli rycerzy średniowiecznych z naciskiem na Wojnę Stuletnią.

Monolith Con 2019 - Intergalactic Dog Fight

Hi All,No dogs were harmed in the making of this scenario.Maj Guiscard ran us through two scenarios to get a feel for the game. In his usual style he kicked things up a notch and converted everything to 28mm scale. As you can see, we had plenty of room to maneuver.Enjoy!We of course made lots of engine noises as we pulled off trick flying.Next up: "Defense of the Orknodrome!"

The Middle-Earth Hobby Bingo update 5

About one more month to go before the year, and this bingo effort, ends, so let's see how far we are for the final sprint.Because well, dwarves are lethal on short distances after all...But oops, in update 4 I actually forgot to post the image of my card, so this time it seems like a lot of fields had been scratched off...What is actually new are the Morannon orcs, resulting in the marking of "Finish a model that has been in your to-do pile for over a year".I realise I won't be able to finish all the squares for the Bingo by a long shot, but for december and the AHPC I am going to be aiming for some final markings first before entering other items into the challenge...

Monolith Con 2019 - Black Ork Down

Hi All,Here's the first game I got to play in on the weekend. By the time I got there they had just wrapped up a Hardwired scenario. Airbornegrove came up with this scenario next and it was sort of loose with concepts from Hardwired borrowed.We were divided into four teams and had to defend a downed chopper. I appeared to embark on a strategy that would hold for the weekend, "run around a lot and be generally ineffective."Enjoy!All in all a fun game, I just didn't achieve much for our side.Up next: "Intergalactic Dog Fight!"

Sorry, still more Zeds.

So, still more Zeds from the Toxic Mall box. I know you are likely bored looking at them. Rest assured, I'm tired of painting them. But we're nearly done.I knocked of a mixed lots of regulars zombies (including some bigger ones) as well as a bunch of toxic zombies.The toxic Zeds are more interesting to look at. But I'll be happy to see the shambling-ass end of this project.I also finished a few more gangsters from Pulp Figures. Four gangsters plus a lovely fire hydrant and a police box. I think I have three more that just need the base painted.Up next: Honestly, I'm not sure. I have a building underway. And I need to think through a holiday-themed game. I'm thinking some kind of Franklin Expedition tie-in. The lesson from my last few pulp games is less complexity and smaller tables. So it might be a straight up fight for control of the Terror? Maybe with the ice breaking up? I dunno. Need to layout what I have.
