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: less than a week to go!

With less than a week to go, it's time to do an overview of where my element stand for the big game on the 14th. 

There is no historical background, so any vehicle platoon is in- hence the mix of early through to late war equipment. 

T34 company one - 10 T34/85s and backup from 3 T34/76s

Company 2 -10 T34/85s in winter white wash. Hidden amongst their ranks are three OT34 flame tanks too, which should be a nice surprise for toasting some foes! 

Recon elements - 1 BA64 and one BA10m from warlord, and two ba6s from baker company. 

Tank hunters and assault guns - one each of Su76,  Su85,  Su100, Su122, ISU122 and ISU152. All warlord resins. 

Heavy tanks - wish there were more of these for the big game as re going to be meeting a hell of a lot of big cats on the opposing side! 
Two Kv1, two Kv2, Kv8 and IS2

Light tanks. Complete opposite to the above, these guys aren't going to be much use in the big game, but they're mobile cover for the flame tanks is the plan! The T70 is from black tree (horrible kit...I love their infantry but won't touch the tanks again! ) and the rest are all from baker co. Who still owe me a few vehicles yet to come ;) 

Transports- the trucks are from baker co and I'm currently missing the axels and wheels ( in soviet Russia, the men carry the trucks....) and the rest are from warlords plastics range, with heads added from the baker co winter war range. 

And finally there's the Hollywood flank, whisper has had some if it's weathering added but there is just a little more work to do. It's never a finished task!


 Then there's the objectives, artillery and the odd infantry element to think about... But they may have to wait for another event as I don't think I'll get any more done before the 14th. This will be enough to keep me going for my evenings this week getting these all weathered and finalised ready for the day. 

Wish me luck!
