TT combat whare house

I bought the TT combat MDF Whare House kit and have been really happy not only with the service ,great speedy delivery ,well packaged but also the kit itself . It went together really easy ,less than an hour to build the full building and all the packing cases that come with it . I will be using it for 7TV ,zombie tv and Batman I will post more pics when its painted ,batman and the tumbler are in there for scale they are 32mm .

Joy of Six 2015

Our charity game at this years Joy of Six show was a WW2 with difference ,it covered an action in Iraq with the British KingsCorp taking on the Iraqi forces ,rules were the GHQ WW2 rules and all the figures and scenery were also GHQ .All painted by John Grayson. The game was a close run thing with the Brits (me ) suffering terrible dice roles . This years show was at anew bigger venue and had more traders and games than before ,well worth visit .

The first few pics are of our Game .

This and the following are some of the great games on display

A Bridge Too Far -A Jeep Too Small

My good friend John Grayson brought me into the 28mm world of Bolt Action WW2 gaming by talking me into buying the rule set but then giving me a complete army ,a British Airbourne platoon .The figures are a mix of Artizan ,Crusader and Bolt Action .The first 2 makes mix no problem but the Bolt Action figures are a lot slimmer and slightly shorter but will be ok in different units ,the jeeps how ever are different story as the pictures below will show .
The Bolt Action Resin -nice 

The Artizan metal -very nice 

but when you put the 2 together ........

Knight Models SWAT Van

I have just finished the swat van for BMG from knight models , aMDF kit . I must admit the kit was the easiest MDF kit I have had to build but it was the hardest to get off the "sprue" or what ever the wooden bit around the model is called ,the laser cutting was not finished and it took ages to prise it free , however the laser cut wording was del enough to allow painting but they do need aspell checker . I added the toughened glass windows myself ,the kit is pretty poor really with nothing supplied for windows or interior and I even had to cut the doors to shape but over all anise bit of scenery for the game .
