Hi All, at the weekend I received my Mammoth Walker, courtesy of Boss Miniatures with a little help from Warlord Games! This large and in charge Russian Walker is a significantly heavy beastie and comes in a number of large castings. We have a large single piece body, a front plate for the lower glacis […]Read more "Soviet Steel – The Mammoth Heavy Walker"
In all the months since the release of K47, at no point have I stopped and thought “just what can you do with a starter box?”.

If you’ve been following the blog (and if you haven’t, why haven’t you?) you’ll be aware that last time out I put a very quick and easy guide to magnetising […]Read more "Soviet Steel – Painting the Cossack"
