Bamboo Forest

In this post I will show you all how I made my bamboo terrain.
First I made a order of a pack of 100 plastic bamboo trees from Ebay.

Then I cut out some bases in thin mdf with a powersaw
I sanded down the edges and added some Vallejo grey pumice to the bases.
Painted the bases with Vallejo game color Tierra Earth 062
Applied some static grass flock to the bases
Glues some Oregano to the bases and drilled some holes into the bases for the plastic bamboo trees to fit.
And here are the finished bases.
I hope you all like my little tutorial.

Japanese Corprals

After changed miniatures wargame rules from Bolt Action to Chain of Command I noticed that in my Japanese army I need four Corprals in one Platoon, one for each section of men.
To make them different then the rest of the men I decided to put caps on them insted of helmets and I even tryed to paint collar rank insignia on them.....

Now when I have painted this four miniatures I can get back to building more jungle terrain!

Palm Trees Part 2

Hi again today I will show you how i finished my palm trees with a little tutorial!

First I sanded down the edges of the mdf bases.
Drilled a hole in the mdf for the palm tree.
Glued the tree to the base and put some Vallejo grey pumice on the base.
Here are the colors I used to paint the palm trees.
First paint castellan green on all the palm tree, then high light it with loren forest green and then some high light of gretchin green.
The base was painted with game color Tierra Earth 062 and washed with Vallejo lavado sepia wash.
Here you can see how the palm trees looks with no paint , paint , and painted with high light.
I put some Oregano spice mix on the base.
And here are the first six ready palm trees!
And here are some extra pictures.... hope you all like them :)

Palm Trees

I have always been interested in the Pacific War during ww2, and thats why I desided to invest in some more jungle terrain.
This time I made a order from Magister Militum in the UK for two bags of JR miniatures plastic palm trees.
I also made a order to Sarissa Precision for some 40mm laser cut MDF bases to mount my trees on.

In the next post I will try to show you how I pimpt up the plastic palm trees.

First Chain of Command Test Game

Last week me and my buddy Peter got around to have a test game of CoC
The first thing I noticed was the Lmg is every deadly in CoC compared to Bolt Action with it should be...... Shooting a Lmg in Bolt Action feels like shooting a pea shooter.
One more thing I noticed is the turns and phases in CoC make the game not as fast as Bolt Action, but you dont have to rush your men forward to be able to complet the objective in 6-7 turns.

The patrol phase

Placing the jump-off Points
A British section deploys inside the house and puts down fire on the Germans in the field
One German rifleman dies
The British 2" mortar hits the Germans behind the bocage killing one more Soldier.
The Germans try to advance as fast as they can to support the section behind the bocage.
One more 2" mortar Shell lands near the advancing Germans.
Bout me and Peter had a great time and the first game of CoC was a positive experience.
Cant wait to have one more game!

Chain of Command

After playing bolt action for more then 3 years i have started to see the flaws in the rules and the guys at warlords are not adressing the problems quickly as i would have done if the game was my own.
So thats why i have started to look for other skirmish games to test.
After reading on several forums and blogs i found out about Chain and Command.
I made a order for the rules from too fat lardies home page one week ago, and now i got the rule book in my hands :)

I hope i can have a small test game during next week.... i hope.

Early War Kradschüzen Squad

As I told you in my last post, this post is about my German early war kradschüzen squad.
All the models is from Warlord games and two of the bikes and crew is the Blitzkrieg German Kradschützen Motorcycle combination (1939-1942).
One of the bikes and crew is Afrika Korps Kradschutzen motorcycle and sidecar.

In a squad of kradschuzen you can only have one light machinegun, soo i cut away the machinegun and made a green stuff map insted.
Hope you all like my kradschüzen squad as much as I do :)
