Reactor Online

Hello hello,
To mix it up a bit, i quickly knocked out a Warhammer this morning. It is pretty much done just awaiting decals.
Done in the livery of the 1st Davion Guards. Nice easy paint job fairly happy with its execution.

Cheers

Russian Napoleonic Line

Greetings.
Been a bit since i have last posted. Keep getting side tracked by life and various other pursuits.

Today i finally managed to finish off 3 more  Russian line regiments. Again figures are from Ab's 18mm 1812 line. Pretty happy how they have turned out. I think they look impressive in formation.

Also recently added to my painting que Battletech again. Love the books, love the new artwork. So stay tuned for more on that.

Cheers
Matt

6mm Team Yankee

G'day,
Another very productive day. Painted up a good chunk of my 6mm US Army for Team Yankee.
Miniatures are from CinC. Pretty happy with how they come out. Will by no stretch of the imaginations win any awards but they were quick and easy to get off the table.
Back on to my Napoleonic now and speaking of them, My flags finally arrived YAY!!!

Till next time,
Cheers
Matt

More Russians

Greetings.
Finally finished another unit of 18mm Napoleonic Russians. Took a while as im easy to distract!

This unit is the Libau Infantry Regiment. All my units im painting up for 1812. Flags are still on the way unfortunately. I have 6 items on the way from overseas totaling about $300 odd worth of goods and all of it dragging ass getting here!

At the moment Australia has turned into the gates of hell so ive put my brushes down. Yes that is Degrees Celsius.

Blucher First Game!

Greetings!
Hope everyone is well, At the moment my side of the world is suffering from a heat wave. It is Filthy!! 36c at 730am is balls and kills my painting plans. Its 40c at the  moment.

Last night played my first game of Blucher. Jason my opposite was using his newly purchased French army and i just stuck with cards.
Must say both Jason and I are very taken with the rules. Early days yet but we both thoroughly enjoyed the rules system. It flowed nicely, the rules weren't overly complex but quite a lot of strategy and forward thinking was needed.
We played a 200pt game with 2 MO dice rather than 3 and still manged to activate most of our units each turn.
Although i was defending objectives i decided to play aggressive early on with a large flanking maneuver. Unfortunately i blunted my teeth early and Jason rolled up on my forces.

Not a brilliant write up i know but just wanted to share some quick thoughts on the system and pictures, everyone loves a picture right? As we gain more experience in Blucher i may do some proper AARs.

Cheers
Matt
