So, continuing with the Rise of the Robots, one of the first problems I hit was “who should be in charge?” I have to take a LT, and the only options are human. Then it hit me of course it should be Alan Turing. For those who don’t know, Alan Turing is one of the […]Read more "The Turing Test – The Boss and Roger"
This is a tale that starts with democracy and demonstrates why such a decision making method is overrated. I am notorious for having an army problem in K47. Specifically I have 4 or 5 ideas bubbling away at each point. However when I manage to focus I can produce good results as the 107th US […]Read more "The Turing Test – The Start of a New Army"
Hi All I thought I should put a quick blog post up with the entries for our Diorama competition which is running courtesy of Boss Minis and Warlord Games. As you can see from the pictures below, the entries ranged widely in scale from small individual pin counters to larger bases with multiple models upon […]Read more "Rift Tech Radio – Diorama Competition"
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"
As the war in New Guinea dragged on into 1947 the Japanese rift tech was taking its toll on the Aussie forces fighting in the Dense jungle. With the terrain being so inhospitable Australian commanders realised they needed something to even the odds and the Grizzly Medium Walker seemed just the ticket. Although proving initially […]Read more "Droppers – Aussies in K47"
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"
I was off on holiday over the recent school break in the UK and having been a bit frustrated with the paucity of my K47 hobby output I decided to set myself a challenge. I’ve had a planned Desert Raiding force for my US rangers for some time now. My vision was for a force […]Read more "Painting an Army in three days.."
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”"
