Halfords is a well known (if you are in the UK) cycle/car accessories retailer, and I am a signed-up and committed user of their range of spray paints for both white and black undercoat.
Recently they have offered a 3-tone range of "cammo" paints, including a khaki which was used as a base coat for these fellows, and also a Dark Green. The Dark Green looks pretty ideal for that difficult-to-achieve WW2 Allied AFV colour, so having some 15mm PCS Churchills, 20mm Plastic Soldier Company Shermans and a handful of Battlefront carriers to paint, I thought I'd give it a go.
Roll Call is the current BHGS "Big Boy's Toys" event, and so I fielded 2 separate 28mm armies, one of which was the Spanish that I was driving and one was the Weimarians, which I ended up facing in the last game...
With the Cross & Crescent book now out (and looking lovely) I've picked up some Perry Miniatures Arab cavalry from Dave Thomas at Britcon, intending to use them to bolster out the Gripping Beast (plastic) infantry who've been seen here before. The basing is also like the post that appeared here before too.
Usual painting style, this time with a white undercoat and a final coat of Army Painter Strong (ie the mid) tone. The photos are larger than this - you can click them to see a bigger version.
Based in an alternate Earth, Malifaux is a skirmish game with bits of Gothic, Steampunk, Victorian Horror and - of course - the Wild West. It features a magical lawless world rife with monsters, necropunks, man-machine hybrids, gunslingers, and powerhungry politicos.
What's not to like?
I'm in the process of giving this a try, and so of course the first step is to buy far too many figures and spend ages painting them up.
And, so, for your delight and horror, here are the results:
I've posted a video showing how I used wood stain and builders sand to create a pretty decent looking basing system for my Saga figures - its online now and can be seen on Youtube or also on the blogger part of my site.
My opponents FoGR lists from the recent "The Worlds" event in Koblenz are now posted on the FoGR Wiki.
You've got two quite different LoA Anglo-Dutch armies, a Transylvanian, Later Swedish, TYW German "Hoofmeister" variant and a Caroline Imperialist (with Swiss and a Later Tercio). All are on the wiki now.
The 6 match reports are underway and are currently 1/3 written already... here's a couple of game shots to be going on with.
After far too long a gap, finally some new updated material for this website - Saga Vikings in 3 separate match reports against Jomsvikings, normal Vikings and Franks.
In a report spanning 5 pages and almost 10,000 words, you can revel in the exploits of possibly the blandest army ever to take the field on this website, the Dutch (of the 80 Years War - no, me neither) as they duplicate their World Cup heroics and take on a limited themed pool of other similar but generally better armies in a competition in which the last army to be used was the decidedly non-dull Pirates.
