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.

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.

One of the units I really, really wanted was … Continue reading Unboxing: M8A3 Tesla Scout Car
I was lucky enough to get my hands on two of the preview packs for the Italian heavy infantry units for Konflikt 47; these packs contain one Centurian Heavy Infantry and one Bersaglieri Armored Infantry. Of course I had an immediate draw to the Bersaglieri Armored Infantry for Allied Italians. Overall, the kit was was … Continue reading Review: Bersaglieri Armored Infantry – (Preview Pack)
The moment has arrived. The skies have parted, a ray of light has shone down upon my meager review blog, and a gift has been imparted... I present to you.... DEFIANCE! We live in exciting times. With special thanks to the spies at Osprey for sending this along! Let's not waste anymore time on introductions; … Continue reading Book Review – Konflikt ’47: Defiance!
While I have been eagerly awaiting the new Q1/18 releases from Rubicon for what seems like an eternity, there were a few items that I really was looking forward to reviewing. Besides the new crew for US Armor and Tank Destroyers (another blog post in the near future), the recent partnership Rubicon developed with Heer46 … Continue reading Painting Tutorial: Italian P43 (bis) Heavy Tank [Rubicon Models/Heer46]
