For a bit of modern 28mm skirmish gaming I decidet to again build up a Black Watch unit. The miniatures I´m using are Empress Minatures British army soldiers. Other than my Bolt Action WWII project these dudes all wear camouflage uniforms so that was a hard thing to tackle.
For now I finished my Ii clan warband. I added 6 Perry Ashigaru and 2 monks (Kensei and GTStudio) Since I mostly use them for IHMN and Daisho these got me now a formidable skirmish force. Daisho is a skirmish game set in feudal Japan (which even could include mystical creatures and such) based on the IHMN ruleset.
We are playing a lot of In Her Majesty´s Name games lately and I tried the Samurai list for the first time a few weeks ago. Since that I´m expanding my collection of Ii clan Samurai to use them either there or for Ronin.
Finishing the first 4 BMP 2 and some support cars and I now can proceed painting more T64…yeah. I´m getting there slowly.
I finished the first batch of soviet MBTs. Since I love the looks and mobility of the T64 I decidet to build a T64 tankovy company rather than the more usual T72. The models are from Battlefronts Yuris Wolves box set and come with 5 T64, 2 BMP2 and a mini rulebook. The all plastic minis are amazing and they even put in 2 AA mgs since these parts are really fragile.
Since I play Team Yankee, I search for alternatives for Battlefronts resin cast. The resin casts are indeed really nice, but I am not a big fan of resin on tanks. It’s a lot of weight and just not my taste. So I stumbled across a shop which produces 3D printed models for tanks. Butlers Printed Models
I played my second team yankee game today, this time versus west germans. The game was fun but a total desaster. We played 40 points to test out some new unit types.
