[WIP] Beta-3 Colony

Like I said yesterday, i'm onto a new project. As the title suggests, it will be about sci-fi skirmish. I have the minis, but I need buildings. So, I ordered sci-fi bits from Ground zero games, plus things from my trash can. I soon will be a master chief in recycling. Here is what I've done, for now.Zou, je commence un nouveau projet, orienté science-fiction cette fois-ci. J'ai peut-être plein de figs Ground Zero games, mais il me faut des batiments. donc, en regardant ce que j'ai dans ma poubelle (vive le recyclage), plus quelques... [Lire la suite]

[WIP] Les Prussiens bientôt en ordre de marche

It's been a week since my last update. Well, I was busy, and I learned I would be "inspected" in two weeks. So, a bit of stress actually.Anyway. I've almost finished painting the Prussian army. Today, I varnished the 3 cavalry units: Salut à tous. Presque une semaine sans poster, quelle honte de ma part. Je devrais me cacher tiens. Mais bon, j'étais un poil occupé par ma vie privée, et j'ai appris que j'étais inspecté dans 2 semaines. Pour info, c'est ma première inspection, alors je stresse un peu. Mais comme ce sont...

[TEST] Force on force- Trench warfare

After a time simply reading the reviews and the after actions reports, I bought Force on Force, from Ambush Alley games. Last Friday, we had a go at the system, with the minis at our disposal. It would be a WW1 encounter fight. The scenario wis simple, and inspired by the first one from the rulebook.A french patrol with an artillery observor had to go through 3 points,  while a german made its way to the trench. We didn't really care at first about cover or numbers, because we wanted to test the game's mecanism.Ca faisait un... [Lire la suite]

[AAR] Pyrrhus à Clichy- dimanche

I had two battles fought on Sunday at the Clichy Tournament; the first against an Ostrogoth army, then against the might of Rome.   So, first battle: I thought my army was big (23 units). But my ennemies were many, many more (27 units). Ouch... How to destroy such a numerous army, full of impetous units, led by Alain Buffet, who like to destroy phalanxes and peltats... Fortunately for me, I had elefants. Le dimanche, j'affronte Alain Buffet et sa masse d'Ostrogoths... tous impetueux ou presque. Argh. Et avec une... [Lire la suite]

Ok, my troops are ready to land tonight! I've just finished flocking the bases, and the game start at 8pm. they will fight for Gold Beach, in the Jig sector, with the support of the 47th Royal Marines commando! Yay! They should fight against poor Georgians. Ah, an easy target... I hope so... We will play with Blitzkrieg, a french set of rules, quite similar to Squad Leader. I'll post the After Action Report soon, I promise.Dans 3 heures, toutes ces troupes vont débarquer... A Gold Beach, secteur Jig, avec l'aide du 47e Royal Marines... [Lire la suite]

[WIP] D-Day -2

Friday night, I will officially launch a Normandy campaign in my club. The first big scenario is... a landing, on the British side. I already have a company and tanks, but I needed an other one. Well, the task is almost done: the paintig phase is over for my infantry, and I just need to add some detailing (maybe some weathering too if I have the time to do it) to my "heavy" units.18 infantry bases (including the supports). Now, everything they need is a coat of varnish and some flocking...Et voilà. A deux jours du gros... [Lire la suite]
