Battle Report: Operation Kinder– Ultramodern Chain of Command

With my work on Ultramodern Chain of Command continuing, as well as campaign in the planning, I would need to recruit some additional players. Luckily, I have a former housemate/Delaque player to recruit. Of course, recruiting a new player to game is always interesting, especially as his other tabletop experience had been entirely Games Workshop …

SITREP: Hint Dropping

Hmm, this blog has been far too quiet this week, maybe I need to drop a hint about that I’m working on… Okay that’s less a hint and more of a preview. But expect a post soon about some of these fine figures from White Dragon Miniatures. It’s actually been a nice change, jumping around …

SITREP – Rules and Platoons!

Well I do love a good contents page don’t I? A lot of time has been spent digging through various conversions of Chain of Command these last few weeks, trying to arrange together some information to be used to make up a set of changes to move Chain of Command into the Ultramodern era. I’ll …

SITREP – The Prince’s Private Army Pt.1

It’s taken me a little time (I was distracted by all sorts of fantasy things) but I’ve finally finished off the first three Criminal Element Heavies from Spectre. As mentioned previously, these guys are going to be used as another Special Forces team in the Bazi Empire. While the Insurgent PMC I’ve done previously look …

Impressions: Black Powder Red Earth 28mm

Oh boy. It’s been a long time since I’ve looked at rulesets, even longer since I’ve written my impressions on them. So why not kick it off with something that has been eagerly awaited? For a long time, there has been a lot of discussion about a tabletop game from Black Powder Red Earth. Keen …

Wargaming Week 27/07/2020

It’s a new week, time for a new update! Not much hobby done as I spent a chunk of last week fixing the website again. I wrote a little bit about what has been changed up on my Twitter (and warning about what I think caused them). Fingers crossed this is the last time we’ll …

Wargaming Week 19/07/2020

Another week, another update. You might have noticed some more posts are missing images. Looks like the gremlins have got back into the system and something is removing files from my uploads folder – the price of running a blog install for 10+ years. I’m going to spend some time hunting through it, making sure …

Wargaming Week 13/07/2020

Another week, another update. Managed to get some time aside to start painting four more US Marines. I was going to try and get more done this weekend but it was one of those weekends where the motivation dives into the toilet. NEWS Flytrap Factory are working on some cool 3D models of SIG assault …

Wargaming Week 06/07/2020

Time for a new update! Not much in hobby news so today is mostly a news post. NEWS Empress are continuing their work to bring all the HLBS vehicles in house. This week sees two interesting vehicles for the Brits – the Warthog and Viking. These AFVs are perfect for fighting in Afghanistan, as well …

Wargaming Week 22/06/2020

Another week in Lockdown, time for a new update! Two more SITREPs this week, and I have another in-progress covering my Dark Eldar character. More details coming soon also for the Enforcers (who I’ve also slowly been working on). NEWS Lots of new releases from Knights of Dice down under – 15 new kits. However, …

Wargaming Week 15/06/2020

Another week in lockdown, another week slowly keeping things going. Two models for the price of one this week – finishing off another few elements of the Bazi military. These were fun to paint and I’m quite happy at how they are finished off. The whole point at the moment is slowly working through my …

Wargaming Week 08/06/2020

A new week beginning, lots of events going on in the world that I’ll admit I’ve found hard to take my eyes off. I’d like to echo the start of last week’s update –  Listen to those in need, to those who are hurting and have had enough, try to help if you can, stand …

Wargaming Week 01/06/2020

June? Hard to believe honestly. Especially with the news in the world around us. I’m not going to preach from the soapbox, especially as a lot of people are using hobbies as a way of escaping the madness of the real world and I am but one blog writer on the internet, but now is …

Wargaming Week 25/05/2020

Well, we’re still in lockdown and I’m still mostly stuck in my house, playing Call of Duty and occasionally painting some models (when I’m not working). Big new thing I’m trying out – going to be starting to do more short-form articles than waiting to make giant ones. Mostly because I’m bored of seeing just …
