Now then,My homebrew chapter, the Luna crusaders take to the field once again, this time the battle brothers of the 3rd crusade group launch a pinpoint strike against the foul xenos, a genestealers cult. With their primary objective secure, they are counter attacked on all sides by hordes of foul mutants and traitors.....Can they hold on until reinforcements arrive?

It's been over two years since I have played any American War of Independence games in the shed-o-war (the last one was the Battle of Freemans Farm). I really like this period and the look of the games and Posties collection of figures are excellent. Four Rejects gathered to play with sides being decided randomly before any of us saw the setup. The two C/O's (Ray and Richard) then went into the shed and deployed their forces before calling in the second in commands (Surjit and myself). The SetupThis is a fictional encounter set around the rather grand looking Hadley Hall...my namesake wasn't too pleased to be having a battle on his front lawn. I've no idea which side he sympathised with but as soon as the battle began he and his family wisely hid in the back yard. Order of BattleThis is the OOB that Postie drew up for us. To explain the letters next to the units mean the following; E means Elite; V Veteran; and T Trained. The number after that is how many figures are in a unit so you can see there i
I had an excellent time running the 1980s Brew Up In Benzheen game for some friends at Historicon 2019.I have players the option to field their own forces and Reg brought a Cobra team-The players and the table.

Now then,I've become tempted by bolt action. I blame Mr Dave Docherty......Last year he very kindly gave me a Perry 8th army box set, along with a Perry bren carrier and a metal 6 pounder anti tank gun. He also gave me a Perry afrika korps box set, which I've since passed on to another club member, stuart.Bolt action has gained some momentum at the club with players picking their side, Allies or Axis. Clearly I have maintained a stiff upper lip and gone for the Brits. The 4th bn the East Yorkshire regiment to be exact.The 4th bn were part of 150th infantry brigade during the battle of Gazala in 1942, and were caught in rommel's great outflanking manoeuvre and fought in some bitter battles in what became known as the cauldron. Cut off from supplies, and surrounded they surrendered to the Axis forces.So far I gave painted up a full platoon, with more in the form of support weapons and vehicles to be painted.The Platoon consists of :Platoon commander and radio operator.3 x 8 man sections, each with a bren gun.1
A fellow asked me to paint four D&D miniatures for him. I managed to finish two before heading out on holidays.First up is a human fighter with a flaming sword. Grey primer, block paint (with a bit of wet-on-wet) followed by a wash and seal.The sword looks better in person than it does in the picture (camera struggles with red tones, it seems).Second dude is a human fighter in fancy mail.Same technique minus the wet-on-wet. Good details so the wash really popped it.I also took the chance to base one of my own figures (RAFM Cthulhu) that I had painted awhile back but lost track of before completion.The WizKids figures are really nice to work with. I have two elf warriors presently underway and I hope to finish them up in the coming week.After than, I need to finish my 1812 rebasing (just need to get some static grass on).

The most recent battle company to roll off the table, and another one to go off the checklist of the forces that have to be painted up.The Dwarves in MESBG are your typical ones, small armoured tanks that compensate speed with survivability.The battle company as it starts out consists of 6 models, in the form of two each of dwarven warriors armed with a shield, a two-handed weapon and a bow respectively.And it now gives another option in the pool for the people wanting to learn how to play the game!
First of my trolls from Rockgut Troggoths. One of the best minis I have ever painted. Soon I will post another two so stay tuned. Pierwszy z pomalowanych przeze mnie trolli z zestawu Rockgut Troggoths od Gamesworkshop. Świetne modele. Wkrótce kolejna dwójka.

When arriving in the White City, Pippin pledged himself to the service of Denethor and became a squire of Gondor.And as such, I completed the old metal version of this model, ready to stand amongst the forces of Minas Tirith in my games of MESBG.While not the mightiest of heroes, this plucky little chap can't lead a warband of his own, but can be included in another band and add some might to the force for a cheap points ratio.I will put him (thematically) into Denethor's band as a result, and I hope he will prove his might (pun intended) as a result, especially in smaller scale games where the high tier heroes are generally absent anyways. And at 30 points including his cloak, he is quite a bargain...Now to get some Guards ready to join this warband...

And it became Arne, who broke the 17 Reknown barrier and couldn't be ousted from it in the final month.Congratulations mate on this well deserved victory after a year of bloody campaigning.And thanks to Willie for running the whole shabang, which wasn't an easy job with all us hotheads in there x-DI myself stranded on second place, not to shabby at all for a newbie.Arne met 19 puntenTomsche 15Tonny 14Glenn 13Erik 10Ruben 7Joeri 6Dimitri 6Pierre 6Richard 5 David 4There might be a new campaign next year after the club moves, but that won't be for me to be honest, I'm not a fan of the whole Dux gamesystem I must say. It has some serious loopholes
No gaming for me this week and the family is taking a short vacation. But I did manage to complete some terrain just before we left.This is a library set from Mantic Games and contains 14 pieces. It is cast in brown plastic but I primed it white to do a wash.This pack was pretty decent. It also more of less matches with the WizKids bookshelves that I previously purchased.Overall, not a bad addition to my skirmish terrain.
Finally I did it, I finished my battle company of my beloved Rohirrim.Now ready to take to the fields of battle, this has always been "my force" in the Lord of the Rings games, ever since I first read the book when I was around the age of 12.The archers had already been finished in the past, so for this paint session I added the warriors armed with shields, some wielding throwing spears to add in to the charge.And it also adds a small amount of points, 39 to be exact, to the Rohan army in build up... No idea how they will fare on the tabletop, they will be my band for the campaign I have planned in 2020 anyways...
Moving onwards and upwards wirh the Caesarian Romans from Gripping Beast.The next stand to follow shortly along with something oldCheers for now
