Corsair Leader first impressions

I really didn't intend to buy Corsair Leader. While the genre is interesting and I am a fan of their solitaire games, it just wasn't anything that I had been looking for. I blame the neoprene mat. That and the AARs and videos that people have been posting. It just looked like a lot of... Continue Reading →


Warfighter WWII battle report

So after my first game of Warfighter I thought I would set up another game and write some notes about it as I played so I could write a battle report. I picked up the German and Polish expansion packs for the game and decided to use those to simulate an early war mission with... Continue Reading →

Bolt Action Germans painted

I didn't have a chance to take photos before our game today so here are my completed StuG III G and the leIG18 team. Not entirely happy with the StuG but I learned a bit about painting the camouflage and weathering. Now on to some of the infantry.


Just a quick post to show a photo of my 28mm Warlord StuG G. I've just done a pin wash on it and am cleaning up the wash before doing some further work. I have the schurzen which I will also be attaching. Next up is some more cleaning and then a dry brush and... Continue Reading →
