Fantastic Video of the Weald Foundation operational Jagdpanther, presented by Hilary Doyle (renown German Armour Expert) with some absolutely fascinating and obscure facts included. A must watch if you are a WW2 Tank fan. Here is where you will find…Read more ›
I am currently preparing the Cruel Seas review, along with the Flotillas and larger ships. I mentioned the resin ships in my last short update, Civilans, Romans and Boats, and I find it very appealing to build something completely different to the very dominant 28mm kits that I usually cover. Assembly goes fast, as does […]
This kit has been around for a while, but I think it makes sense to team it up with the Campaign supplement for Operation Overlord. Warlord Games gave the US Infantry, one of the oldest kits for Bolt Action along with the Brits, an overhaul. And that box is todays topic, the new US Infantry, […]
Since Wednesday the Colony 87 Kickstarter is online. The range moved from Jon Boyce to Crooked Dice and has its third wave crowdfunded. And the campaign was funded within 15 minutes (with myself among the first backers!) and now already has unlocked the initial four stretch goals. Might be even more as there is a […]
The latest piece of terrain that I've finished, it's a ruin this time round.Cast in resin, I have totally no idea where I got this model from to be honest.But it is a great little piece of ruins to give some cover to mighty heroes, or for lowly rabble to sneak around.Painted with a basecoat of Dark Rubber, followed by a Strong Tone wash, it was then drybrushed with various shades of grey to give it a good Middle-Earthen feel on the tabletop.And so slowly my terrain collection for the hometable is build up...
In the year of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day it makes more than sense, to (re-)visit one of the most infamous operations of the second world war - Operation Overlord. Warlord covered the battles in North-Western Europe with the very first campaign supplement, Battleground Europe, and now comes with a strong focus on Campaign […]
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
Yesterday I visited the two day event of TableTopia by Asgard Aschaffenburg, a wargaming club from Northern Bavaria / Frankonia. The event is hosted in the youth centre of the Schweinheim district. The building has no parking lot of its own, but you can park you car along the street. And as you can see, […]
With the campaign Fortress Budapest supplement Bolt Action opens up a new theatre of war on the southern area of the Eastern Front. And unlike some of the other campaign supplements, it wasn't already covered in one of the broader books. Fortress Budapest covers the late war Budapest Offensive of the Soviet and Romanian armies […]
The last Bolt Action campaign review that I published was Battle of France back in April, I'm currently still working on the Fortress Budapest book. It is massive and a part of the war, that I am not that familiar with, so it takes a bit more time of preparation. In the meantime the next […]
Today and tomorrow the CONflict Rheinland (Rhineland) will be held in Langenfeld near Leverkusen, between Cologne and Dusseldorf. As such it was a short and straight trip for me, 5 minutes to the Autobahn, 1 hour on it (just the A3, no changes...) and roughly 5 minutes to get from the exit to the venue. […]
A new Kickstarter campaign from Italian based LuxLu has sailed into view. Naval games seem to be coming back under the spotlight and this new offering of 1:1850-1:3000 WWII fleet action could prove very popular. [...] The post Take control of your navy in Admiral from LuxLu appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
Beginning in 1950, the Korean War was a defining moment for the UN and the entirety of the early Cold War, widening the already monumental gulf between the east and west, capitalist and communist. [...] The post Bolt Action: Korea appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
Another small set of "scatter terrain animals" in this post today.I had these models for ages, and finally gotten around to restoring and repainting them after they served in my Chaos Dwarf / Hobgoblin force a decade ago.A variety of breeds, these 28mm scale dogs are great to populate villages in games of SAGA and the likes.Nothing to spectacular, but I adore the English Bulldog ;-)
As I had quite a good impression of the Tamiya kits in the past, and the 1:48 scale vehicles fit well with larger 28-32mm models, I added to the 1:48 Tamiya HUMVEEs and Black Scorpion's Last Patrol a M1A2 Abrams. The kit is usually priced around 26-30 EUR and casted in sand yellow plastic. The […]
