Wargaming Week 03/12/2018

Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 26th of November through to the 2nd of December.

NEWS

Under Fire Miniatures has updated its Cold War US Army infantry range. As well as adding a new release (the Dragon ATGM team), they have also been rebalanced. This mean the packs are a little easier to choose when trying to build you force, splitting the riflemen from the support weapons.

If you want some of your own, you can find them on the Under Miniatures site .

This week also saw a small but exciting release from Spectre Miniatures. The first figure is the undercover operative you see above. Dressed in civilian clothing ideal for the MENA region and with a suppressed pistol, she is perfect for more covert missions. I’m also a big fan of her sculpt, and can’t wait to get her painted.

The other release was designed to give the FSB team some backup. Deciding that .50cal rifles were not enough of an advantage, this new killteam operator arrives in full heavy body armour. Although not quite as covert, it won’t matter when he is kicking in the door.

PURCHASES

Okay, I may have done a big Spectre purchase. As well as the two new figures (which I’m very excited about getting on the table) I also decided to pick up a few things

  • HMV 4 – This is going to be another blank Humvee, probably with some stowage applied but not much else. This will give me a pair of vehicles ready for use in various countries, as well as two additional high-tech vehicles for special forces use.
  • DSHK and gunner – An upcoming scenario I have planned is going to see some of Bazistan’s SF rolling around in a Humvee. So I’ve picked up a suitable gunner and another DSHK to add to the ring mount.
  • Scatter terrain – Spectre released a pile of scatter terrain that I hadn’t picked up, such as the walls you can see in the picture above. I really want to start improving my picture and tables and this terrain should be a great addition.

HOBBY

We have action on the painting bench. After a nice break away, I finally broke out the paint and got to work on Ember team from Spectre. I managed to get the basic colours sort, so maybe there will be a post on Friday with some more details on them!

Maybe.


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