[WIP] D-Day, H minus 3

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).

[WIP] Let's go lads

Yesterday, my britsh company was based. Today, they get their precious undercoat. I wanted to gain some speed, so I used the brown undercoat from Army painter.

Yay, now I'm prepared.Erm, back to the company. With did I use the brown undercoat? Easy:- the british battledress is quite of brown-ish, so, it will be perfect after a devland mud wash-...

300!!!

Today is my 300th post! Wow, I'm quite impressed myself. But I have no time to celebrate. The clock is ticking and my british rifle company won't paint itself. I've decided to go for the taylorist approch, aka speed painting. The minis were glued yesterday, and now they're based! 3" mortarI really like the PIAT in firing positon. the Peter Pig are really great minis. Aujourd'hui, je célèbre mon 300e billet.
