Avanti Savoia! - the tiny edition

As you could read a few weeks ago on this blog, Nemesis and me are dipping our toes into historical again, and this time in scale 6mm and the Blitzkrieg Commander rules.Like with Flames of War back in the days, I looked at all the lists, but in the end I got dranw in once again by that beloved army of mine, the Italians.Now, the book fetaures a variety of Italian army lists, to cover their participation ranging from the invasion of France at the beginning of the war over the african theatre, the expedition to Russia and the defence of Italy itself, so that is quite a variety of lists I can choose from.  And this should give me forces up to the capitulation of Italy in 1943 as a result.I have as such been looking and planning for building a force for each of the theatre lists as a result, and while the North African list will probably become the biggest one of those, I'm going to be buying and painting models for every one of them, though some like the Balkan list will only be small 1000 point or such sid

Blitzkrieg Commander 4th Edition

After playing Future War Commander for more then a decade now in 6mm, Nemesis and I decided to (finally) get the historical version as well.And the 4th edition had just been brought out this year.Now, over those years, the Commander series has been acquired by Pendraken and the BKC book has had an overhaul compared to the old books.  Three things immediatly caught my eye flicking through the book after receiving it.1. The paper has changed.  It seems thinner but glossier then the older editions of the books.  While this makes it look a lot more "high end" then the older ones, I doubt it will stand the time just as well from constant flicking through pages.2. It is sleeker in appearance, with a lot of colour pictures and "decorated sections" in the rules, like for example the scenarios, who used to be just black and white blocks of text in the old ones.3. It doesn't come with the handy cardboard summary sheet.  There is a free download for it though on the website, so not to bad, but it was

Initiation of my 28mm Soviets. Inicjacja moich Sowietów w skali 28mm.

There is nothing better than pushing your freshly painted models straight into the table. There happened with my Soviets in 28mm, during last Thursday game. We used the Chain of Command rules for that.Nie ma nic lepszego, niż możliwość wysłania świeżo pomalowanych figurek prosto na stół.

Dispatches from the front II

I bloody hate cavalry...… I have been sitting looking at the same cavalry unit for the best part of three weeks, if I can't break the back of them tomorrow they might have to be bounced from the queue for a while. I am not sure if it's the mass of horse flesh or the fact that I have glued the riders on first, something that I don't normally do in the painting process. Do we all have a touch of OCD when it comes to painting? Meanwhile we had a crack at Osprey's latest card game, a two player game with a number of missions from D-Day to play through, you use your cards to grab the initiative and use your squads to grab objectives I must admit it was a real blast and felt very realistic, very much a band of brothers feel to it, the early missions contain only rifle squads, but later missions introduce MG's Mortars and snipers.MG's are great at pinning troops, mortars are flaming nasty and you need to get a move on once the targeting round lands. Stick and move is the name of the game.Send your scouts out to cl

Soviets 28mm. Sowieci 28mm.

Today something I recently painted. Here you have my Soviets in 28mm from Plastic Soldier Company besides one figure which is from Warlord.  I decided to base my figures for Chain of Command. However, they can be used for other rules too. The figures already had their initiation on the table, details in my next post.Dzisiaj coś, co pomalowałem ostatnio. Oto moi Sowieci w skali 28mm od Plastic Soldier Company i Warlorda. Zdecydowałem się przygotować moje figurki pod  Chain of Command, ale mogą być one wykorzystane również i w innych systemach. Figurki miały już swoją inicjację na stole, ale o tym w następnym poście.Senior officers (one in the black coat is from Warlord):Medics:SMG team 1:SMG team 2:SMG team 3:Rifle team 1:Rifle team 2:Rifle team 3:ATR teams:Maxim MMG teams:Light mortar teams:Medium mortar teams:75mm Infantry Gun:45mm AT gun:
