Showcase: Konflikt ’47 DAK Walkers

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

Who has Two Thumbs and Just Won a Painting Competition?

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?

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)

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

Completed M8A3 Tesla Scout Car

It took me all Friday evening, but I was able complete my M8A3 Tesla Scout! Let me walk you through the process... Here is where we left off... I had just added stowage to the rear of the hull. There was still loads more to do yet. I consulted a lot of images of M8 … Continue reading Completed M8A3 Tesla Scout Car

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
