As previously posted, I went for plain German grey. I still have to decide if I am going to add some transfers.
Although I always liked the models of the Bolt Action series and the system, I could not really get attached to the game for a while, due to it’s real historical background. However, when the Bersaglieri for Konflikt 47 appeared in June 2018, my interest was aroused. Konflikt 47 offers enough fiction to successfully bring […]
At the end of August, I've held a Konflikt 47 walker in my hands for the first time and was thus able to gain my first experiences with the Coyote kit. The walker is delivered in a box, but is effectively housed in a classic clampack. After I freed the Mech from his package, the […]
This was a simple olive paintjob really as I wanted it to be an American Mech. I may yet add a white star transfer or two.
Picking up the theme of Konflikt 47 once again. We cover today an interesting counter-part to the jump walkers of the Allied Forces, like the M2 Mudskipper, the Locust Panzermech by the Axis. Konflikt '47 is a joint project by Warlord Games and Clockwork Goblin and is set upon an updated Bolt Action's First Edition […]
G'day All,I'm a little late with my annual looking back / looking forward post this year because I've been on hols. It's something I enjoy though as I always find it motivating and it helps kick me into gear for the year ahead. Here we go...This year has seen the Distractability Index at close to an all-time high and whilst that has got loads of stuff done, it means a LOT of it wasn't from Glorious Plan Millsy 2018 (or maybe it was?).The plan for year consisted of three main goals...1. Continuation of the 55 Days at Peking ProjectThis one stalled big time. Too much of a good thing proved to be a bit of a killer for the enthusiasm but I did still manage to knock out a unit of Japanese Infantry.I also managed to get a couple of games in which was great fun.On the plus side I jumped on the Warbases Boxer Rebellion Kickstarter and will be shortly receiving another 8 beautiful building kits in the post. Add those to the table plus a few unfinished items and it will really look the duck's nuts! Enthusiasm restored.
Konflikt '47 is a joint project by Warlord Games and Clockwork Goblin and is set upon an updated Bolt Action's First Edition ruleset. In addition to the regular Bolt Action products, that can be used with Konflikt '47, there are a couple of items that were specifically designed for the range. Like many of the […]
We played Bolt Action a while ago, so we had to follow it up with a game of Konflict 47, both are good games that get on our list of games to play in a year, but have to wait eleven months for it to actually happen (we need more months or fewer games). We played a scenario, with a small detachment of US forces holding a bridge and waiting on reinforcements. The German forces quickly advanced, regular troops and unpleasant zombies. US troops advanced to relieve the defenders on the bridge using as much cover as possible. German vehicle units moved directly on the bridge, a Panzer IV with a Laser Cannon and a medium walker, packing plenty of firepower. Even a Kübelwagen with a machine gun can be quite effective. If you can get a flamethrower close enough, it really is a great weapon against a nice bunch of zombies. Mortars are more difficult to use, they are slow to move and need setting up before they can open fire. I think I would prefer more flamethrowers or perhaps a bazooka. I did not take as many pi
Time for a quick post to catch up on some recently completed for my Konflikt '47 US Army. It's too late on a Sunday night to go into these in depth so I'll let the pics do the talking...50 cal HMG and crewMudskipper Medium Jump Walker with Bazooka upgradeAnd so you can get a sense of the size of the Mudskipper, here's a comparison shot with "Junior", my Coyote Light Walker from the US Starter Set. Disconcertingly, Junior is about twice as heavy as he has metal arms and legs as opposed to his big brother who is all resin.That's enough show and tell for one night. Back to the AHPC IX prep!Cheers,Millsy
Some more goodness arrived in the post this week for my US Konflikt '47 force. Having already completed the starter set plus extras I'm now adding some flexibility and shininess to build things out to 1500 pts. Today I finished the painting on my Mudskipper Medium Walker, armed with a pair of light autocannons, a 30cal MG and a brace of bazookas. Another lovely kit and a joy to paint.I've also got a 50cal MG team assembled and undercoated, plus a unit of ten Firefly Jump Infantry in the same state. This week should see those most completed I hope.Given the weather is absolutely stunning at the moment (drought notwithstanding) I managed to convince myself to go for a decent walk just after lunch. It's been some time since I have been round the Shaw's Ridge / Blue Gum Swamp loop track near home so I tackled that, going clockwise which means I climbed up Shaw's Ridge instead of the easier downhill route. It's about a 10km loop and took me roughly 90 minutes with the odd stop for photos.Eggs and bacon in ful
