Wargaming Week 20/08/18

Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 13th through to the 19th of July.

BLOG STUFF

This week’s post was another part of Building A Force, this time looking at support for Irregular Forces. This articles are really handy on weeks when I’m busier than usual so expect a few more before the end of the year.

NEWS

The Assault Group this week released a new range. Well, a new range for them. Consisting of three sets (and two freebies), this range appears (based on comments on the news post) to be a re-release of a previous range. Unusually for TAG, these are sculpted by eBob and stand a little smaller than most modern figures. However, they present an alternative option for players wanting to play the Chinese for the mid 2000s.

The White Dragon Miniatures quad bikes are getting closer. Dwartist has received their quads and will soon be working his magic on them. As you can see in the picture, and as you’d expect from the Courage in Contact range, there are multiple variations of cargo and rider giving you plenty of customisation options. More details on them as it comes in.

PURCHASES

Nothing this week, still busy painting things.

Saving my pennies to pick up another Humvee from Spectre once the gunners and new stowage becomes available. I’ll probably also grab one of the new Luxury SUVs at the same time.

HOBBY

Main task this week was getting the pile of releases from Salute finally based up and undercoated. It took me a while to get all the figures based up (the bikes and carts causing problems) and then they have sat for months waiting for me to sit down and add the basing material. Having a slow evening I broke out the extended version of Gladiator, a box of sand and started applying the PVA glue.

I’m also carrying on painting the Russians – I just have to remind myself how to paint SURPAT. Luckily there are only 9 figures to paint and most of the post is already mostly written so expect some thoughts on Friday!


That’s it for this update, expect more updates next week!
