Avanti- CR42 Falco

Avanti- CR42 Falco

First models completed this week are the CR42 Falco for the new Avanti Force. These are going to add some much needed air support which will hopefully aid in taking out the larger opposing tanks.

Next up is some infantry.

Massive Darkness: Troglodytes Boss

Massive Darkness: Trogdolytes Boss



My first finished Massive Darkness figure this week. Up is the Minion Boss from the Trogdolytes box set. Only another models to complete from this box set. I have not decided on the basing as of yet, but I think it will be something to reflect the nature of the tiles.
This model will also star as an enemy NPC in the D&D campaign that I am running.

Avanti Italian Forces in North Africa 1942-43

 'The German soldier has impressed the world, however the Italian Bersagliere soldier has impressed the German soldier'
Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Rommel
On 10th of June, the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini known as IL Duce, joined the war on the side of the Axis forces, declaring war on Great Britain and France. He had dreams of a new Roman Empire, which he would start by kicking the British out of North Africa. 

Check after the break on some internal book pics and contents. Plus my thoughts on a new Flames of War project.

We are gonna have another full game next week so will try and do a better write up. But from the first play through it was a blast

Star Wars Legion Shadow Trooper

Star Wars Legion Shadow Trooper




Legion has been out for a few weeks now, and I had been struggling to get motivated to paint up the figures. However seeing the painted figure shots hitting Facebook I decided to knuckle down and paint a test model. Rather than the classic white armour I have chosen to do Shadow Troopers. Fairly quick and easy paint scheme.  I have Salute this weekend so that will put a halt to any hobby. But have all the Storm Troopers undercoated and based. So one big painting night will see them done.

Anyone else painting up Legion?

Ultramarines 100 Power Point List


Ultramarines 100 Power Point List

So been a long time since I talked any 40k with a lot of my recent focus being D&D. A good mate said that he fancied a game of 40K as he did not want to forgot the rules, but more importantly he had unknown to me he had snuck in a copy of Forge Bane and some other Ad Mech bits and pieces. So with the spanner thrown down as it were. I spent Sunday pre Grand Prix working up a 100 Power Point List.

Check after the break the break down of my list.
