This is a post I have wanted to make but haven't--for who knows what reason (not me; I haven't a clue). As my primary German army is Afrika Korps, I have modeled my Konflikt '47 German walkers/Panzermechs to fit the army. I figured it might be useful to post about them, especially given how trendy … Continue reading Showcase: Konflikt ’47 DAK Walkers
This fellow! Apparently... there may have been a mistake, because I never thought in a million years I would win a painting competition. But nevertheless, I entered several categories for Warlord Games' Summer Painting Competition (SOPCom) and... I won Best Paraded Army! I I know, right?! I still can't believe it. But I guess the … Continue reading Who has Two Thumbs and Just Won a Painting Competition?
A few years ago when I was just getting back into miniatures, models, and wargaming, I stumbled upon Hero Forge. At the time, they had a handful of options for customization, and the prices were a bit much, but I picked up a couple anyway. I was impressed by their Miniature Designer which felt a … Continue reading Review: Hero Forge Custom Miniatures
A while ago I came across Oshiro Model Terrain via this amazing website which contains 28mm-scale resin terrain for Feudal Japanese wargaming. I have been sitting on this blog post review for a while primarily because I had ordered more stuff from them and wanted to paint them all and display them properly. Unfortunately real life … Continue reading Review: OSHIRO Model Terrain (28mm Feudal Japan)
Following up on my previous post, now that my Locust Panzermech was built and I had a striking pose for the model, it was time to paint it. The steps I followed were identical to the ones I took when painting up my P43(bis), so be sure to follow the instructions laid out there if … Continue reading Completed Locust Medium Panzermech
Back in August when the Locust / Heuschrecke Medium Panzermech reared it's chunky head over at the Warlord website as a 'pre-order', I had already known what I planned to do with it once I received it. There is absolutely lovely piece of art in Defiance where the Locust looks almost as if it is … Continue reading Unboxing: The Locust Medium Walker (Konflikt 47)
For a few games in the new Defiance supplement for Konflikt 47 and some in Bolt Action require the players to each choose a building or model in their deployment zone which is considered a command post or an objective. In previous games we used burned-out buildings, but I really wanted something more specific. As … Continue reading Tutorial: Making an American Observation Post (Bolt Action/K’47)
Confession time: I really only play four armies for Bolt Action; a German army (the Deutsches Afrikakorps, commonly abbreviated as DAK), two Italian armies (one Allied and one Axis), and an American army based around the Mediterranean. Basically, what I am trying to say is that this is the book I have been wanting for … Continue reading Book Review – Bolt Action: The Western Desert!
Scenario 1.5: A Chance Encounter NOTE: This scenario is an optional one that takes place between the 1st scenario and 2nd scenario of this Defiance campaign. However if you choose to run this scenario, there will be bonuses or benefits for each side in upcoming scenarios depending upon the outcome. To skip this narrative story … Continue reading Defiance Campaign Scenario #1.5: A Chance Encounter
Background: US Mechanized Cavalry Squadron Unlike Armored Divisions and Armored Infantry, Mechanized Cavalry Squadrons focused on mobility and light-armor while remaining relatively self-sufficient. Armored platoons preferred larger, heavier tanks especially as the war progressed. Cavalry squadrons did not function the same way and they had a different doctrine. Cavalry Squadrons were typically made up of … Continue reading Fielding a US Mechanized Cavalry Force in Konflikt 47
