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"
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.

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.

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."

Model We should start with the model itself. […]Read more "USA Army – Apex Predators – Mudskipper Jump Walker"
So, as I am now several battles into my career as leader of the mighty 107th, pride of New York, I thought I should start writing up some of my experiences for fun. As was a habit on previous blogs, these reports will be simple, straightforward and have a theme song. Yes, that’s right, a […]Read more "US Army – Woeful Tales of the 107th – Battle Reports, Part 1"
So, with a few games at smaller points under my belt with the glorious 107th, I thought I’d update my basic lists and share my thoughts on how they’ve done so far. My 500 point list is as per the battle report here. So Far: 107th on the march! I’ve not won a game yet, I’ve […]Read more "Reinforcing the 107th – aka What Have We Learned in the US Army"
