Review: Hero Forge Custom Miniatures

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

Review: OSHIRO Model Terrain (28mm Feudal Japan)

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)

Completed Locust Medium Panzermech

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

Unboxing: The Locust Medium Walker (Konflikt 47)

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)

Tutorial: Making an American Observation Post (Bolt Action/K’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)

Book Review – Bolt Action: The Western Desert!

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!

Fielding a US Mechanized Cavalry Force in Konflikt 47

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

Review: M5A5/6 Jackal Light (Jump) Walker

A while back, Warlord graciously sent me the M5A5/6 Jackal to review; I had a lot of other new goodies that arrived at the same time, so it took me a while to get to it. I am glad I waited. With Defiance now released via Warlord Games and soon to be available through other … Continue reading Review: M5A5/6 Jackal Light (Jump) Walker
