So after some time with Mother Russia’s finest I finally managed to get past real life and arrange a 1250 point K47 game. This was against Nick one of our resident Brit players who said: “I’m bringing an armoured platoon for a laugh tonight” And my simple thought in reply was: “Ok then, you’re on!” […]Read more "Stomping All Over the World – USA Walker Platoon Revisited"
You may think that is a click-bait style title, but there is a genuine answer. It’s cause they are both all about the razzle dazzle! musical explanation here! So one of my nemises (nemisi?) Simon put an idea in my head. Knowing full well I loved the look of the heavy walkers and knowing I […]Read more "Soviet Naval Brigade Part 4 – How is a Mammoth like Richard Gere?"
So, the challenge was a 1000 point army in 6 weeks. As those of you I met at I17 know, I made it – just! Once again, I had the normal event experience of finishing my basing within 24 hours of event start! However, in the last week I managed to do the Daughters, Iskra (AT […]Read more "Soviet Naval Brigade – Part 3 – Hello Sailor and/or Comrade"
Following on from part 1 of this series here; progress is continuing on the Naval Brigade of the Destroyer Oktober. Firstly we have the first complete squad, a 11 man SMG squad. Deadly from close in, these figures were too fun not to use! Again, quick and tabletop is still the name of the game, […]Read more "Soviet Naval Brigade – Not Perfect Part 2 – First squads! "
So, this is a strange article for me to write. I’ve been painting for almost 25 years on and off with small improvements and sometimes great leaps, but always forward. I am a perfectionist to an extent and with the firm but fair feedback of James and Si I usually spend a lot of time […]Read more "Not Perfect or “How I learnt to stop worrying and embrace tabletop standard”"
As most Bolt Action players will tell you, the new hotness is Operation: Sealion, a new what if style campaign book in the Bolt Action universe (ish!) However, knowing that there is several people who like to borrow (or outright steal!) The beat ideas from other areas, I thought id look at the book from […]Read more "What can K47 players take from Sealion?"
**This review brought to you thanks to the kind support of Clockwork Goblin** The final of the first book’s USA medium walkers has arrived, and my goodness was it worth the wait! The model This is the last of the first book’s Grizzly chassis variants, and the model matches that simplicity. It is in essence […]Read more "Apex Predators – M8A4 Bruin Support Walker"
So, the fun toy we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. The Jackal has 2 variants, the base one, with just machine gun is the M5A5. I honestly see no reason not to upgrade to the M5A6 – which adds an infantry flamethrower. Yes, a flamethrower, on a jump walker. But before we get […]Read more "USA Army – Apex Predators – M5A5/6 Jackal Light Walker"
So, in part 1 we covered the starter set and a good solid 750 point starter army. This article explores how to build from there to 1000 points. I’m going to divide this into 2 areas – additions and replacements, with additions being units within the single normal reinforced platoon structure and replacements being ones that replace […]Read more "Getting Started in Konflikt ’47 – USA Part 2 – Tell Me No Lies, G.I.!"
