Modern Warfare: Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Guys

Welcome to plus-ultra mega-elite modern day wargaming where we feature stories ripped from the headlines.  Which naturally means stories that are as fake as the Piltdown Man. To do that we’ll need some modern terrain (working on it), some rules (Osprey’s Black Ops), and a matched pair of forces....

On the Table at 2mm

With the painting out of the way, let’s take a look at what 2mm figures look like on the table. But first, here is a side-by-side shot of the Great Traffic Light Alliance, with British on top and Austrian in the middle and Russians on the bottom row. Any...

A 2mm Primer

With three full armies of these tiny little blokes under my belt, I’m finally ready to share some experience with you, dear reader.  By no means an expert, the best I can offer is my experience working with this incredibly small scale. First up, when you spray coat them,...

The 2mm Journey

Here’s a bit of a look at my 2mm journey, one upon which I have only just begun.  Specifically, here is the starting point for my SYW Russians. Bare metal inventory in progress.  Planning plays a big role here, and you want to dry fit to a base so...

More Vendeean Eye Candy

Been playing around with Osprey’s En Garde! while waiting for the Big Battalions package to arrive, and it’s been nice to fiddle with a new ruleset and some blackpowder scenarios.  My fantasy town works well as a backdrop if I leave off the wizard tower and skull mountain pieces....

War In The Vendee

 Laisez faire, pour le roi und dieux. And the baddies.  ...

The Littlest Gaslands

Picked up a batch of the “Mad Ron” road warrior vehicles from Irregular Miniatures on a whim.  Just look at these tiny little knights of the road: Still have to paint those motorcycles, and the big dang semi-trailer slash war-rig.  The good news is that terrain is already done. ...

Happy Halloween!

Have some eye-candy in the form of a couple of seasonal shots from the archive.     Painted these guys a good decade ago.  These are just a couple of the very few figures that managed to survive the Second Great Sell-Off.  These are so old I can’t even remember who made...

More 15mm Sci-Fi Goodness on the Way

Now with actual photos!  My game time is limited to those rare weekend afternoons when the “To Do List” is somewhat shorter than my disproportionately long forearms.  Painting, however, that can happen any night of the week.  Not only that, but my primary opponent is travelling the American...

Medieval Knights – The Good Guys

This post sure was a long time coming.  Four stands of 6mm medieval knights ready to roll for a game of Neil Thomas’ One Hour Wargames.  These are all Heroics and Ros figures mounted on basswood bases three inches wide by two inches deep.  These stands each have one bannerman...
