This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
A very good friend of mine, Mike M, will have some painted 28mm figures for sale this year at Fall-In. They will be on display at the Architects of War booth. First up is a nice sized 8th Army made from 28mm Perry and Blitzkrieg Models. I think the camp on the Matilda II is very well done. Also for sale (in the next photo) is a 28mm Confederate infantry brigade (again Perry figures). Mike's done some work for me in the past and he's both a top flight painter and very good person.
The last few figures of my Japanese force for the Bolt Action tournament are nearing completion. In the back row are 5 infantry figures which ail be used to bring my Bamboo Spear unit up to the max 15 figs. Yes, I know, that 4 of those figures have rifles, but you see they are unloaded! The flag bearer has a bayonet attached to the end of the flag pole so that's kind of spear-like. In the front row is a two man flame thrower team an extra rifleman and, lastly, a figure with a captured Boys ATR.
I also completed two crewman for the 150mm cannon armed Ho-Ro assault gun. I didn't do the good of a job on those guys so the picture has to be fuzzy.
Another picture of the Ho-Ro. All that's left to do is the flag and rifle banners and then scenic the bases and I'm ready for Fall-In!
