Devils Run - WIP

Not too much to show, but I recently started building some cars for the Devils Run game. I'm doing this as the second wave from the KS should be here in the next few months, and I'd like a game soon.
Also there's a new expansion out soon too, which I hope to pick up at Games Expo in June.

Hive Tyrant - based

Not a new figure, and not even one I painted (this is my dirty secret, most of my 'Nids were outsourced ;) ) but he's now sporting some base texture, so he's posing for photos!

1/300 Coldwar Commander Bulgarians

Following on from the Landjut Campaign photos, here are some shots of my Bulgarians. This is meant to be an Independent Tank Brigade from the mid to late 1980s. This means there are 3 Tank Battalions, and one Mechanized Battalion with supports, and I've tried to photograph these best as I can - they are very small! Some of the models are straight from Heroics and Ros or Scotia, but a few I've had to convert myself.

Mechanized Battalion


BMP-30  + Gaz 69 (Both from Heroics and Ros, the 2S1 has a BMP-2 turret and rear doors added)
technically the BMP-30 is a bit new for this force, but I snuck one in on an HQ stand.

BMP-23 (similar conversion to the BMP-30, but using a re-profiled CV9040 turret)

Full Unit

Recce Unit

Scotia PT-76


Motorcyles (H+R WW2 German motorcyles + sidecars. The Bulgarians used a helmet style very similar to the WW2 German one, and the Soviet motorcyle combinations were copies of German ones, so it's all ok!)

Coldwar Commander at Slimbridge

A few weeks back I took my 1/300 (6mm) Coldwar Polish down to Slimbridge for the first game of the campaign Richard over at Coldwar Commanders (http://coldwarcommanders.blogspot.co.uk/) has organised. Set in 1989, this is the LANDJUT campaign covering the hypothetical invasion of Denmark by Soviet and Warsaw Pact Allies.

These are some of my photos of the event, and some of my tanks - it was a chance to get them out and be able to photograph them!

Polish amphibious forces, supported by my Motor Rifles seize a supermarket! there terrain we had there was superb!

Chieftains - NATO British heavy forces deployed to help the Danes, and the bane of my weekend!

More excellent terrain on the other table - the Kiel Canal.

Polish Motor Rifles scure the right flank of the town using T-34/85s! Some Category C units used them until the end of Communism in Poland
