Lone wolves

A group of hoary old gamers, modellers and painters. We've been meeting and playing once a week since the late 1990's and this is what we get up to.

Dux Bellorum project part 5

Me again!

Another 3 bases done, this time its Nobles. Rather that painting the shields, this time I used decals from Little Big Man.

Once again I will be adding flowers to the bases after a Salute purchase

Dux Bellorum Project part 4

Only a few weeks after my last post, its time for another update.

Again, in need of some flowers to completely finish them off, here we have three bases of Irish Warriors ready for action.

Next up, some Nobles...

New Hat...

A bit flat at the moment but sure it will re-shape

So with our Chain of Command campaign coming up, I had a decent idea about making some nice looking patrol markers. Given that they are only in the first 5 minutes, I didn't want to spend a massive amount of time on them. Once I came up with the idea, I decided to do a set for each of the nations involved on 60mm bases. End Result?

Dux Bellorum Project part 3

Another month on the Dux B project, and I finally have something finished to show you.

I say finished, but I think the green of the bases needs a little something to break it up a bit, so I will be looking for some flowers and/or other foliage at Salute in a few weeks time.

Below we have three bases of skirmishers with slings ready for action; the gaps at the back of the base will be where the dice will sit to indicate their Cohesion.

Battlegroup Kursk - After Action Report

The second half of the game was played the following week but I have been too busy or distracted to post the remainder of the report - scant that it is - I have it here now.

The Panzer Ace advances to get a better shot at the T34 he has been duelling with.  The supply truck unpins ready to resupply as required.  At this point the German commander is nearly Winchester rounds

Tiger II and Jagdpanther - Complete

Continuing in all things for Battlegroup I borrowed these from Cyrus to play in a Fall of the Reich game.  Lordyboris wanted to get some of his more interesting toys on the battlefield.  So I did the same and ended up using the Jagdpanther with a Panzer Ace.  I think he killed a tank eventually.  Anyway to thank Cyrus I thought I would paint them.  Still need some decals

Compound - Finished

Not much more to say really.  It has come out well enough.  I need to pay more attention to filling the gaps for future buildings
