A Thunderfire Cannon and a Mistake..

I’ll tell you what the mistake is at the end of the post, for now, let me show you the Cannon..DSC_8164

Build to be the “heavy” choice in my Allies force org, SM codex, but still painted SW as My army here is a great hunt, using a few different wolf lords etc.. I figure one of those wolf lords can be an SM codex choice..

Amazing Modelling/Painting book Indiegogo campaign

This was just too good not to back, I mean look at it! and its a very reasonable price to..

Made by some of the outstanding talent at the Cursed Monkeys website, and some names anyone in the scene or who goes on CMON will have seen over and over, it looks like a great book to have..

The campaign is on Indiegogo and I'd be very sorry to have missed it, so thanks to Roman at Massive Voodoo for the heads up.

Operation Squad AAR

I actually got to play a game – although its a while ago now, So thoughts here will be general recollections through the filter of time..

I will say that it was very good fun, and the table, and miniatures looked pretty good. it was refreshing to play a smaller scale game with a lot of cover, and I think my next few 40k games will be the same, mainly because i still haven't got the 6th ed rules down. a shame as i think there's a lot in there for me to like.
anyway, Operation squad

A German Mortar Team eyes up my foe..
He brought British commandoes to face my Heer.
Tree lined roads make for lovely fire-and-manoeuvre terrain
Sneaky Britisher Commandoes using a big building for cover

almost a “panoramic” shot
German MG support on the hillside
Its a good, fast game where each model is a single man, the lovely sequences of intention, then initiative feels fluid and intuitive and it plays well.

I’ll definitely play this again, if i ever get chance :)

An Update? Can it Be?


Rising, Zombie like form the grave once more... Apologies to all who have kept this blog languishing in their "followed" list, - a New term always brings challenges and this one has been no exception. It is my hope to return to updating, but I wont fool myself into setting a schedule or any expectations. I will however share some pictures of some Germans I painted before the hiatus, and I've enough content for a few more posts I think, If i can find the time to both Paint, and Update...

So, some Germans for you then..

AHEM, so yeah, I recovered form this German infatuation, although i do have a few Americans lurking in a drawer.. I may even also have a test fig waiting for paint for them. but that’s by the by..

I enjoyed these simply because they were delightfully easy to paint, that said they aren't my best work by far, but I think the pressure I've put on myself to try and get the Wolves looking god has been a major demotivation, in terms of time taken to get any progress made.

So what’s the plan? number one, progress on a certain Titan I've now had for such a long time, it isn't even funny… then progress on the wolves. I may also paint some Americans as its fast and motivating,

Lastly, the release of the Inquisition Codex may be the incentive I need to dust off some minis form my old DH army, see what can be salvaged and compose a roving Inquisitor to use with my Wolves and IG both.

Thanks for your patience.
