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
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?
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
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)
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
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!
As you may or may not have seen, Warlord Games has released a preview of the two new Heavy Armored Infantry sets available soon to Konflikt '47 Italian players (er, that is, to players who field Italian miniatures--though, I suppose also to Konflikt '47 players of Italian descent). They are wicked cool-looking. As Italy was … Continue reading Painting Italian Infantry (The Konflikt ‘47 Way)
If you’re anything like me (your wallet hopes you aren’t), you spend a lot of time—more time than is healthy—burning through models, paint, and money trying to find a way to make your army stand out from all other others. One way I’ve found to add character to a Bolt Action or Konflikt 47 platoon, … Continue reading Painting Guide: Camouflaged M4A9-T Sherman Tesla Tank (Konflikt ’47)
A month ago, I picked up a box of Ronin for the game Test of Honour. I was intrigued by some of the painted miniatures on various blogging sites and social media groups; it is the standard plastic samurai sprue from the main box with metal heads and one full metal special character. According to … Continue reading Review & Showcase: Test of Honour – Ronin
