Unboxing: M8A3 Tesla Scout Car

When Konflikt 47 and Osprey Publishing released the supplement Resurgence a little over half a year ago, I was really mainly excited about a handful of units in that book (not having much interest in the Japanese at the time--mainly because I couldn't afford another army).

Review: Bersaglieri Armored Infantry – (Preview Pack)

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.

Painting Guide: Camouflaged M4A9-T Sherman Tesla Tank (Konflikt ’47)

Review & Showcase: Test of Honour – Ronin
