M4 Sherman T34 Calliope


Painted 1200 pts US army

There's been quite a lot about making terrain for Bolt Action battlefield recently, so it's time to turn the tide, back into stricte miniatures.For recent "Road to Berlin" campaign each or participants had to prepare 2 army lists: 1200 points from the same selector. I think the idea was to fit the army to specific scenario's conditions (attack/defence, capture markers or whatever).So here are mine.Quite a rare occasion to show fully painted battleforce actually...The first one is anti-tank group:Local players like heavy armour a lot, in fact it's nothing unusual to see 2 tanks on 1000 pts games. Therefore I became tank allergic...Sure it's fun to use large squads but when confronted with German armour, my infantry melts like snowman in March...So the remedy is solid anti-tank punch:- 2 bazookas,- Hellcat and Greyhound (light AT gun but still counts),- AT atrillery,- air support,- flamethrower (in case shit gets really thick and REALLY close).In my opinion it's solid and reliable force but durin

Road do Berlin 2019 - PICS HEAVY!

Heyah,Last weekend once again I had a pleasure to participate in Bolt Action event organised by Tricity gaming community: Road to Berlin.It's just been ton of fun:lots of gamers, all armies painted, 15 highly detailed battlefields, each with dedicated and demanding scenario. It ended just yeasterday but I already cannot wait the next one.During the event I played 4 games (during which got my US ass kicked 3 times...) so there was not much time to take pics of other battles raging around. Therefore just like in last year's Road to Berlin report - here's what I've managed to gather between giving orders and getting shot.Feast your eyes!Aerial pics of the fields of battle:My first game:That goddamn Tiger...Quick peek on other fields of battle:And my second game - the mission was to prevent launching V1 rocket (which I fucked so the London was most probably demolished): The third game. Bridges suck!And the last game: because of freezing weather both of my vehicles didn't appear on the table at

Upgrading Sherman with Calliope set

Heyah,As mentioned a while back my US armoured forced has been reinforced by T34 Calliope missle launcher. Must say it's been already tested in the field and results are promising:the turn it moved onto battlefield it blew away Zee German Wirbelwind and spread terror among units around.Next turn the game was over.  Yeah, yeah... It was nothing but the matter of luck but still model looks damn cool and brings lots of fun (mostly for US player) so I hope to include it in army lists frequently.Sadly I don't have enough space to keep all models I've ever got so instead of purchasing another Sherman decision was made to upgrade model I've already had finished with Warlord's Calliope missle launcher set. While working on the model some pics were taken about both assembling and painting, which hopefully might be useful for fellow hobbyists.So the operation started with M4 Sherman tank. Model you see below has been painted and sealed with matt varnish, therefore there was no need to undercoat it again befor

M4 Sherman T34 Calliope

Hey again,It's been a while but real life duties once again did the job and pushed the hobby onto the side tracks. Trying to make things right again decision was made to work on the M4 Sherman model painted over 2 years ago.There was nothing wrong with previous paintjob but I needed carrier for Calliope missle launcher battery which by bro delivered for the birthday.Besides there were some other things to test like new paints, Vallejo mud and is oldie airbrush still reliable (it's totally fucked at this moment if anyone asks).All in all I like the result, looking forward to see it in action - blasting hordes of advancing nazis straight back to Satan! Or wherever else they came from! Ka-boom!!!Pictures are okish but kinda "yellow" (or maybe it's just the monitor). I might try to re-take them because some pics were taken during works reporting transformation of this into this:Cheers!
