A few weeks ago now Warlord games released the latest USA walker to hit the K47 scene the Pondskater. Here at K.O. we were so excited about it that we thought we would give it a few games to really get to know the unit before we wrote this post so hold onto your hats […]Read more "Pondering the Pondskater"
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"
Hi All. Shipman has already called DIBS on the Japanese Starter Set review from the new resurgence book and as nobody else has expressed a burning desire to look at the Finnish starter, I thought I’d step up! So (for people who might have missed it) What is in the Finnish Starter Set for K47? […]Read more "Winter Warriors – The Finnish Starter Set for Konflikt 47"
One of the things that most inspires us here at KO about K47 is it’s background. The way the writers have put in enough detail to drive a story but just little enough so you can let your imagination run free in the twisted weird war world. However there is a rather unfortunate trend in […]Read more "Competitive fluffing or how to theme a tournament army "
Resin is a very popular casting material due to it’s lightness and capacity for holding sharp and fine details. In recent years many manufacturers have moved from resin to plastics or a hybrid of plastic and resin to create their models. There are, however, a great many very good resin kits available on […]Read more "Soviet Steel – First Steps with Resin Vehicles"
Continuing the excellent wave of USA releases this month is the USA Firefly Jump Troops. I was eagerly awaiting these as my plan for several months has been a full jump army with these, the new US Airborne plastics (including all the weapons teams you can build from them) and the jump walkers, using the Mudskipper and […]Read more "USA Army – Firefly Jump Infantry review."
So, recently (last night) a big box of hobby goodness arrived from the Boss, it contained (amongst other things) a couple of boxes of the Ursus Infantry from Warlord. The concept of big Russian bear men really appeals to me from a thematic view point and fits with the slightly bonkers sci-fi/horror b-movie vibe that […]Read more "Soviet Steel – A First look at Ursus Infantry"
At Christmas I got a K47 British starter set When I first saw the automatons, I thought it would be quite easy to build, but oh how I was wrong! There were so many bits. There are 5 bodies with ball joints for arms and legs. Then there a 5 automated heads. After that there […]Read more "On Her Majesty’s Service – A look at Automatons"
When I first saw the Galahad suits, I thought they would be a lot of fun. They didn’t let me down and actually surprised me a little bit with the amount of detail of the armour and bolts and wires and all of the amazing heads. They also surprised me when I found out […]Read more "Galahad Heavy Infantry – First Impressions"
After a bit of an extended break from painting I finally got round to finishing my first 3 Schrekwulfen. All of us here at KO are off to a narrative escalation event on the south coast in march called Rift war and it’s given me the boot I needed to spur on with the painting […]Read more "German Fury- Howl of the wolves the Schrekwulfen"
