News, Updates & ramblings

This Blog is acting as the news and updates page for my new website,

The website itself is the archive of my painting through the last decade or more, with easy navigation around what now amounts to over 3000 images of wargames figures & display miniatures.

It is also the repository for my musings, workbench notes and reports on all things gaming and miniature painting that I get up to.

I've been collecting miniatures for 24 years and have covered most scales, periods and styles in that time. Don't expect consistency on one project here - there will be variety in project, but hopefully consistently high standards!

Thanks for reading!

Project Kursk - the preview

A couple of weeks ago, we ran a "little" test game at our local club to try out some ideas of how to handle a game with so many vehicles involved. It went really well, and master of ceremonies, mr Eddie "the Fez" Turner set out some of the WIP forces for a couple of promo shots. I knocked a couple myself for use on the blog, but forgot to post them at the time! 

That's 20 panthers eddie's putting together to form the core of the axis forces. It's a pretty scary sight! Thankfully what's seen here is just a fraction of the soviet / allied forces, but even so! 

Here's the hobbybrush workbench as of a week or so ago. 
Listings change, as I may have to sell a few before the event, but there's more in the post as well to compensate! 

20  x t34/85 (inc 3 OT variants)
3  x T34/76
1 x IS2
1 x captured panther
2 x KV 1
2 x KV2
1 x KV8
1 x SU76
1 x SU85
1 x SU100
1 x SU122
2 x SU122/152
2 x captured hanomags, which will be towing 57mm AT guns
5 x universal carriers
3 x T26a
6 x T26b
3 x Kht26
1 x T70
3 x BA10m
1 x BA64
And a few jeeps, trucks and associated unarmed vehicles 

US allies:
10 x Sherman
3 x M3 half tracks, filled with as many bazooka teams as I can compile (anyone got spare zooks to trade?!?)

They're unlikely to get painted in time.... Ad frankly who cares? ;op 

So there's a bit to do...... Then there's infantry to match it.... But not specifically for this game thank god!
