How big is that doggie in the window?

I am contemplating expanding my currently almost completed late war German panzer grenadier platoon (and its soon to be built American armored counterpart) into the wild and woolly world of Konflikt '47, and as with both of these units, I am looking at incorporating figures from multiple manufacture...

Re: Italeri 1/56 WW II Germans

They are nice figures (and early war Germans certainly do look smart), and your "tabletop" standard work on them is excellent. It would be interesting to compare the price per figure difference between the Italeri 12 pack & the standard box of 30 marketed as Warlord Games' Blitzkrieg G...

Re: A German CO with Character?

Love the Xmas Truce set, and am looking at getting them for my 1940 Floor Show (as I am doing both German and BEF/ Home Guard platoons). And speaking Croweater expat to Croweater, Captain Darling, I'm sure you'll appreciate the allure of Fritz biting into a hunk of fritz. :roll: :lol: :twisted: The ...

A German CO with Character?

I know it's kind of perverse, but I have always had a bit of a leaning towards fielding commanders which are not exactly the heroic stereotype. Witness the figure I am using to command for my American Armored platoon: http://theminiaturespage.com/news/pics/2016/dec/1084360826f.jpeg So can anybody pl...

This time, it's personal

I was just starting to despair about the apparent lack of a Chain of Command tournament at CANCON 2017 on the Australia Day weekend next January when Bart Beswick once more put up his hand to run the show, and so now it's very much game on.

Re: Bridge at Oivi

Looking at the excellent graphic found at http://kokoda.commemoration.gov.au/battle-tide-turns/oivi-gorari.php , I'd say that it to err on the smaller side would not be a mistake. It certainly wasn't as significant as the one over the Kumusi at Wairopi, and that latter one was pretty flimsy by most ...

I played Bolt Action on the Saturday and Sunday, which had a decrease in playing numbers of just under 40%. Warma-hordes was massive, and with their TO constantly using a PA for occasionally very trivial announcements, it was also a very dominating and extremely annoying presence to boot. The major ...

Re: "A Bastard of a Place"

Out of curiosity, which unit do you have in mind as you are painting up your diggers?

(Mine are must probably going to be the mighty 'Mud over Bloods", but I'm torn between having them in their desert pattern as worn on the actual track, or their green dyed kit worn at Gona.)

It all helps tremendously, and is a major motivating factor in my currently painting Japanese.

It'll take me yonks to build up a table or two of terrain, but this glorious thread will be the primary source guiding my work.
