A video from the NZGT

A short video from the NZGT nothing flash just some of the Armies and games.

Saturday, October 30, 2010


Well it's obvious to me that this GT I just couldn't be f*cked and the results ,57th out of 58 players, speak for themselves I'm not going to blames the tables, the army or my dice I just wasn't feeling it at the tourney I felt rushed that and I didn't have the opportunity to play with the army I wanted. So now that's all over I can concertrate on taking my time painting and blogging.

Sick as a dog!

Although I've never seen a sick dog I'm pretty well rooted. I've spent the last couple of days around the home in a panadol and codral induced stuper however in this time I've managed to learn the basics of photoshop so my pictures should start to look better. I haven't painted anything but that'll change by the end of the day....

Minatures review

From time to time I get carried away with hobbies everything from Victory at Sea to Necromuda and usually I thow a link into my blogroll or Stores and shops section without actually telling you anything about them well it's time to start reviewing.......

First up is Khurasan Miniatures a recent foray into Field of Glory and purchase of a zillion Swiss halberdier's unfortunately I'd already ordered them from However I needed HQ units and Khurasan delivered...

They also do a wide range of uncommon historical ranges, sci-fi and fantasy ranges. They maybe a little more pricey than others but that's what quality miniatures demand.

Busy, busy Boy

Hi everyone,

No real news here just being my regular self and working on 1000 projects at once so far I've started the German T-34 Company below only to find it's flaws (not enough tanks). Gained a side interest in Field of Glory so been trying to play the Di Vinici code with the rules. Made a promise to attend NiCon, Royal Oak Represent, but after many hours of pondering I've decided that I will take Panzer brigade 150.....More to come about this super secret project later.

With the release of a bridge too far I went looking for textured card or plastic to represent fanned cobblestones and do you think for the life of me I could find any? Hell no! However in the back of a bridge too far they have a guide on how to make fanned cobblestone streets.

So armed with my greenstuff, a mini screwdriver and some patience (once you get a rythm going it gets really easy to do)
You can see the once I did at midnight it's a bit messy but a good first attempt if I do say so myself.
Now to put some brit para's in them....

The SS T-34 that almost didn't happen

Ever since the Flames of War book Hitlers Fire Brigade, I've wanted to run the captured T-34 company in there a couple of things stopped me 1: The points cost twas waaaaaaaay to expensive and 2: These tanks were part of the Waffen SS but weren't rated as such.

Now with the release of Battlefronts East Front book the T-34 Company is ready to destroy it's previous owners.

However this is the tale of how mine almost never happened I had hand painted the tank russian green then added splotches of Khaki grey after my Dunklgrab colour turned out so bad I almost scrapped the whole project but though "No, I can fix this" so out with my trusty Tamiya Sprayworks and tamiya German yellow a little more tamiya pigments (similar to that Mig wash stuff), also if I say Tamiya 3 more times they'll send me a free tank lol,and now I present you the results.

Some of the guys over at tabletop terain were discussing the game Legends of the Old West after themselves playing a bit of gutshot they developed a Cowboy fetish. Announcing 2010 Year of the Cowboy proptly followed by hours of playing with each other on the X-Box. As I don't have an x-box I managed to paint up some cowboys. The mini's are from Wargames Foundry Wild West range.
