Green Hell!

In a previous post I had finished painting everything that I had for my WWII collection, but have since treated myself to a few models, including a tank for my allies. Having recently read James Holland’s Brothers in Arms, about the Nottingham Sherwood rangers tank regiment I was inspired to buy a Sherman Firefly forContinue reading “Green Hell!”

Bone ‘ead

When the Imperial hive of Pinguisburg Profundis was destroyed at the whim of the Inquisition for the crime of harbouring a genestealer cult it took Vertraag, an ogryn slave working in the underhive waste disposal sector primus, three months to dig his way to the surface. From there he walked, bewildered and aimless through theContinue reading “Bone ‘ead”

Sneaky Gitz

Last Orktober I wrote a post about the completion of my long running Blood Axe kommando clan. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled across two sneaky gitz who had somehow infiltrated my painting pile from that nefarious eBay!.. In all seriousness, I find that whenever I think I’ve finished one of my collections, my eyeContinue reading “Sneaky Gitz”

Where Stenguns Dare: Operation Harlot

Having finished all the painting of all of my WWII collection to date I was inspired to get them out on the table for some rip roaring action. It was time for Lord Lovat’s No.4 commando to go on operations… “Ah.. good evening Shimmy, take a seat, now we’ve  got a job for you oldContinue reading “Where Stenguns Dare: Operation Harlot”

Schwerpunkt!

For a number of years now I have had a WWII skirmish project simmering away on the back-burner. In a previous post I showed off my US airborne infantry but I have documented very little on my blog since then. My collection is somewhat unusual, including as it does, a captured Char B tank, aContinue reading “Schwerpunkt!”

Welcome to the jungle!

I have spoken in a previous post (read here) about the system I devised to help me to get more of my wargame projects to completion and having followed it for a year now, it has more than proven its worth. One such project, which started nearly 15 years ago, is my classic metal CatachanContinue reading “Welcome to the jungle!”

Chimera

Years ago, when I still played the unwieldy behemoth that was Warhammer 40k, I had a rather large Imperial Guard army and as part of it I owned no less than six Chimera APCs. They have always had a place in my heart, those sturdy little tanks, many is the time my opponents scoffed atContinue reading “Chimera”

Ordo Xenos

“The purfidy of the alien is myriad, they understand no alliance, they know not the illumination of the immortal God Emperor. I shall not rest until the galaxy is cleansed of their filthy infestation!” Lord inquisitor Erasmus Van D’CrulleOrdo Xenos Clad in an archaic suit of tactical dreadnaught armour, its life support systems the onlyContinue reading “Ordo Xenos”

One day in Normandy

I have been busy over the last couple of months painting rather a lot of miniatures for a friend to make a little ‘pocket money’. It has been somewhat of a double edge sword, as although I haven’t had as much time to paint minis for myself, I have been able to paint figures IContinue reading “One day in Normandy”

Fun and Frolics in the Deadzone

Hello fellow carbon based lifeforms and welcome to another Deadzone post! I have been playing some more solo missions in the Deadzone this week and trying out a new randomized activation for the ‘opposition’, using counters drawn from a cup. It has worked rather well at creating suspense, not knowing which enemy model will activateContinue reading “Fun and Frolics in the Deadzone”
