Hey Tas,

So Black Powder...just downloaded the base set of those from Warlords website for free I'll check them out!

Cheers!

Cheers all,

There's a battalion of Portuguese hiding in there with some skirmishing Cacadores as well. There's another 2 btns of Portuguese and a gun on the go, problem is the wife made me tidy up and somehow I've misplaced half a btn! They're half done but I'll be stuffed if I know where they've gone around the house...

Spanish... Yes, must do some now Perry has got some on the go... :)

And I definitely recommend Black Powder, how to play a big game without melting the brain, and the best bit it can be tweaked to suit - our club usually plays half moves and we removed the saves to speed up game play (to compensate the stamina was doubled and shoot/HTH made to 4 each for a standard btn. We like it as you can't rely on saves - especially as I can never make one :P)

cheers,

Tas.

Yay Spring! time to paint some more! And Cheers Matthew for the reply - apologies for so long between posts! :oops:

After getting life out of the way, managed to slap some paint on my SAGA 2 impulse buy :D Still WIP straps pouches and highlights/touch ups etc to do but I can cope with them for a 4 or 5 pt game :)

It was these that made me cave and get germans... Oh and taking Jagdtiger for Tank Wars, and the old "you can never have too many armies for BA" :P
These were done last year... yes I really don't enjoy painting Germans so I put them off to do other projects :D

They're to go with these (done in 2017)

Hi all!

Gotta love those rare quiet days when you actually get something done! These guys were a project that got shelved ages ago after doing one min sized squad, a medic and the Lt+NCO. The rest were slapped with green and forgotten, until today! Before this morning I was actually going to sell all these, now I'm keen to get a game in! :D They were my second BA army after the Japanese but have lingered through me painting the British, the Germans, and heaps of other projects...

But! USMC here we come, finally! (Typical Yanks,turning up late... :P)

more to do but I reckon I can knock 'em off this week!

HI all,

Marine month continues :) - WIP on "Lil Lucifer" a M3A1 Satan. Had to convert the flamethrower as the kit comes with the hull one only but I wanted the turret Ronson flamethrower to match the book so had to convert it :D (Easy conversion, just had to find the right sized barrel in the bitz box

Big Squad :D ! Good looking force.

I have a friend who wants to do CoC with Japs and USMC forces I’ll look forward to an AAR from you it might inspire him (I’m not a Bot Action Player but still love good figures in an AAR)...
