So we’re back! This time we’re looking at the Soviets in K47 with help (as usual) from our co-host Scott of Boss Miniatures. This is a fairly lengthy episode which should download automatically via Podbean or iTunes if you use either of those apps. Alternatively you can listen via Sound Cloud. As […]Read more "Rift Tech Radio – Episode 3 – The Soviets in K47"
After a brief hiatus the time has come to paint my Mammoth. There’s an article on building the mammoth where you can see that I’ve undercoated the beast in Olive Grey Green. This has then been given a gloss varnish to try and protect the paint against rubbing and chipping. The next step […]Read more "Soviet Steel – Painting the Mammoth"
Hot on the heels of Episode 1, we’re releasing a podcast about the German Army in Konflikt 47. We’re joined again by Scott of Boss Miniatures. In this Episode we have some tasty rumours about the Italians in K47 before getting into our German review around the 15 minute mark. We’ve also got some […]Read more "Rift Tech Radio – Episode 2. The Germans"
So, we made a podcast. We made a podcast, released it and have (until this point) no links to it or anything about it on our blog. We were so organised, we planned what we’d say and organised it all with Scott of Boss Miniatures, and then forgot to write on the […]Read more "Rift Tech Radio – An Introduction & Episode 1"
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"

I was at a new store near Coventry a couple of days ago where there was a lot of interest in the starter boxes, and I realised just […]Read more "Soviet Steel: The Soviet Starter Set for Konflikt ’47"
Hi All, we’ve been running a competition through February and a combination of Event attendance, “real life” and work etc has prevented the 4 of us from meeting up to discuss the entries in any detail. In an attempt to make a decision we’re going to put a piece together and argue our favourite […]Read more "Konflikting Opinions – The Competition Winner"
Recently I’ve written about the KV-1 Heavy tank by warlord games, the very successful Russian tank that came into service in 1939. In that post I mentioned how the KV-1’s greatest enemy was it’s weight, which massively hindered it’s ability to get where it was needed. As tank and vehicle technology advanced during […]Read more "Soviet Steel – The IS2 Heavy Tank"
I originally wrote this in December and have meant to publish it for a while. I think part of me was waiting for us to do a group feedback for the event in Bedworth but with everything that’s happened in the last couple of months getting a hole in the schedule for the 4 […]Read more "Soviet Steel at Battlefield 47"
Hello Comrades! I thought I’d do a quick article around winter weathering our fantastic light walker – the Cossack by Warlord Games. 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"
