As usual, it all started with the same question: "hey, you ever heard of Zona Alfa?" I hadn't, so I did a bit of digging, and found a game that can be summed up fairly easily as 'Frostgrave with Kalashnikov's'. This was, in fact, a major selling point, and after spending my hard earned rubles … Continue reading A Good Day for a Roadside Picnic: Getting started with Zona Alfa!
Hello there! I did say I would reveal my next Team Yankee project on April 25th, and as you may have guessed from the Free Nations book, and the date, its the Anzacs! Wait, what? Yeah, that was my reaction too, upon finding out that the Kiwis and Aussies were in the game! It was … Continue reading They Came from a Land Down Under: Lost Anzacs in Team Yankee!
It was quite the early start, leaving at 6:00 am, and after our 3 and a bit hour drive we arrived at the Bunker in Welland, Ontario. When we eventually got there, my excitable nature took over and I didn't take a lot of pictures, so you'll have to take it on faith that the … Continue reading End of the Road: My Trip to Miniwargaming!
Finally, the light at the end of the tunnel. A hurried rush to get everything painted before the big day, but...its done. My list is painted, varnished, and safely ensconced in protective foam for it's long journey to Welland, Ontario. This has been a hectic last week, as the clubhouse was a hive of activity. … Continue reading The Road to Miniwargaming: Part 2….and a detour to 1944…
Hey folks! It has been a while, hasn't it? As life tends to do, I was saddled with a lot of non-hobby related stuff, and had to clear that hurdle before I could throw myself back into the fight (Lest the Commissar get riled!). As it so happens, I can do even better... About 5-6 … Continue reading The Road to Miniwargaming!
So, as so happens every few months, my good friend visited from the City again! I tend to treasure these little excursions, as while I may get a good deal of 40k done on my own, it is always nice to sit and watch a good movie the rest of my family has no interest … Continue reading Highlights of a Hobby Weekend…and musings about scale!
Hey guys, before I begin I would just like to say the attention I have been getting recently has been great! I was shocked to log in after my last post to see far more viewers then I usually garner. It was a real boost to my motivation! There while be more Praetorian Guard and … Continue reading Chaos in the Abyss: A Narrative Project
So followers of this blog know that I'm a big Guard fan. What may not be as immediately obvious is my love of 18th/19th century warfare. The smell of powder, the sound of musket fire, and bright flashy uniforms are my kryptonite. The Vostroyans fit this bill to a certain degree, but GW rather wisely … Continue reading Blast from the Past: Praetorian Guard!
"Let the Galaxy Burn."-Horus Almost every new player to Warhammer 40k starts with an Imperial army, usually that of the Adeptus Astartes. Some eventually move on to Xenos armies like the Eldar, Orks, and Tau. But you will be hard pressed to find a player who doesn't at least have one or two Space Marines … Continue reading What I think: Chaos Space Marines and Shadowspear!
Hello again! It has been a very long time since my last post. Suffice to say, I had some stuff going in my life that sapped my hobby energy, and brought this blog to a standstill. Sorry about that! But, without any further ado, time for some juicy content! Kitbashing is the art of taking … Continue reading A long awaited update! And some Rambling about kit-bashing too!
