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). One of the units I really, really wanted was … Continue reading Unboxing: M8A3 Tesla Scout Car

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.

According to … Continue reading Review & Showcase: Test of Honour – Ronin

How Well Do the Samurai Miniatures Scale With Each Other?

Over the last few months painting up Samurai and Ronin and Ashigaru for Test of Honour, I get asked two questions the most often (often amidst the horror-filled looks and gasps over my paint job--amateurish that it is). "What model is that?" "How does 'X' manufacturer measure up to 'Y' manufacturer?" Well, you're all in … Continue reading How Well Do the Samurai Miniatures Scale With Each Other?
