Easter Sunday saw a trip over to Lost Ark Games at Stevenage for our bi-weekly Bolt Action wargaming session. Four of us indulged in a 15mm Tank Wars game, Russians -v- Germans. The game runs exactly the same as Bolt Action except that movement is measures in centimeters while firing distance is measured in inches.
Easter weekend and I’ve been making some more terrain. This time I tackled bomb craters and bombed out trees.
I thought I would do a quick review of how I use magnets in my wargame modelling. I started using magnets when I first restarted collecting and painting 1/100 or 15mm tanks; I wanted to be able to have the turrets movable but be able to remove them when they got destroyed on the gaming table.
Every few months I take a walk int town on my lunch break and peruse the military history section of the second hand books in our independent book shop, David’s. I came away today with a couple of additions, one to my true crime reference section and this one for my military history.
On Friday evening I had a flash of inspiration and decided to build a church. I had no idea what I was going to end up with and Googled 28mm churches for a few ideas.
got some new toys today! I've been waiting for these since my daughters and wife clubbed together to buy them as a Christmas present in the Blitzkrieg Miniatures pre-Christmas Black Friday sale.
This Sunday is the third Sunday meeting at Lost Ark Games and we are planning on doing some Bolt Action Tank wars but with 15mm (or 1/100) scale models rather than the Bolt Action 1/56th standard.
