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.
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.
I got a nice little surprise in the post today. A few weeks ago Blitzkrieg Miniatures had a 50% off everything sale so I ordered some reinforcements for my British Army.
Blitzkrieg Miniatures produce a range of 1/56 (and 1/48) scale WWII armour out of resin. Their tanks are around £20 - £22 each but most Mondays they have a half-price sale on one specific model.
I got the Russian armour some months ago and have built them up and painted them. As a Bolt Action beginner I've not yet had the chance to game with this one yet but am managing to build up a fairly substantial Russian force.
This week at the wargames club, I took my American Airborne troops out for their first ever battle. They took on Mark's 1,000pt German five-dice army including his Tiger.
I started building these bad boys a couple or [...]
When I got back from Stevenage with my new Bolt Action armour, I was keen to get started on one of them. The Tiger seemed favourite so I thought I;d throw together an unboxing video.
In June this year, I started a new job. It mean that rather than driving down the motorway for 17 miles, as I had been doing for the previous 15 years, I could walk to work in less than ten minutes. (Actually, I cycle in around 4 minutes).
