The Xenos Are Rampant!

Today is the day! Just in time for the release of Osprey’s latest hardback, “Xenos Rampant”, comes my new Rebel Miniatures fighting fifteens. This time I remembered to take shots of the primed figures. And I remembered to take shots of the vehicles that I bought.  Here’s a useful...

A 15mm Figure Miscellany

Today feels like a good day to spam your attention with several hosts of 15mm painted figures.  We’ll start with the historical crowd, all of which come by way of Irregular Miniatures.  A unit of twelve light infantry for the British, with an even dozen tribesmen to match.  With...

Sci-Fi Parade

In addition to some fine 2mm terrain, the good guys over at PicoArmor offer a small but well-crafted line of 15mm sci-fi figures.  They have plenty of modern 15mm figures as well, and we might take advantage of those in the future.  For the present we’ve got some future...

Breaking Through

The channel, The Joy of Wargaming, continues to make inroads into the wargaming community.  Now with more than 1,400 subscribers, brave souls not yet scared off by my frequent sojourns into topics that we aren’t supposed to discuss, and more of the newcomers expressing thanks for a non-converged alternative....

Random Shots

 As we ease into the weekend, let’s take a look at a couple of preview shots of battles coming up on The Joy of Wargaming.  First up a look at Osprey’s “Black Ops” which features a surveillance fight gone wrong when competing espionage agencies arrive to gather blackmail from...

Finished Figs

 Just a couple quick shots of some quick paint jobs today.  My 15mm fantasy adventures needed some Bowman at home in the woods.  These DemonWorld figures have amazing detail for the scale. Best of all, you can order them individually. And what the heck the XCOM fan in me...

Cha’alt 28

The Blackraven action has shifted to the alien planet of space weirdos some call Cha’alt.  And that means it is time for some eye-candy.  Here we see the Cult of the Spicy Wyrm, ambushed by the ragtag band on the right.  For some reason, Cobalt-15 brought the MSB along...

Rogue Stars Eye Candy

 What can I say? I’m a sucker for a good infiltration mission.  Here, the crew of a tramp freighter have snuck into Starport Moai to re-clone a couple of forcibly infected crewmembers.  This looks like a job for Gold Cross.  Not even an mRNA scrambler shot of nano-trackers can...

The Very Model of A Modern Wargame General

 The modern table continues to take shape. A bit of screen, a bit of scrap wood, and a bit of sand… And you’ve got some nice tall fences. I’m not crazy about these fences.  I should have oriented the screen diagonally to make a diamond pattern, and the cloth...

Modern Conflicts Call for Modern Solutions

Starting to amass a little ultra-modern warfare collection for use with Black Ops.  To date, I’ve only ever played that game using sci-fi figures, but for the first time in a long time, I’m starting to get a handle on how modern warfare can be wargamed.  More on that...
