Alternate Death Korps of Krieg - Complete

Im not a fan of the fluff behind the Death Korps of Krieg at all, but I do love how they look. So as I was looking around the internet I found these guys you see now. These guys are from Anvil Industries range found here.

Anyway before I talk about the project here are some pictures of Mordor Miniatures work.

The Final Banzai - Bolt Action Review

I didn't get to play this game, but instead got 2 other players to play while I was the rule informant. I figured i'd rather wait a bit more before I get to play and hopefully have some people excited about it then play and have one less person give it a shot. Over all I would say the game was a success. 

Unfortunately I forgot to charge my camera! So this will be more a brief review of the game and how much I enjoyed it (despite not playing directly). However enjoy random pics that fit the topic instead...

Fall of the Rising Sun - Bolt Action

I am pretty excited to be playing Bolt Action for the first time tonight and am hoping it takes off. For this battle we will be using the starter sets for Japan and Russia. I have been dying to play this and have worked really hard this week to put together all the scraps I got second hand into a functional army. I will be having a test game with 2 others at the club who are interested  in trying it as well. 

Note these arent my models in the pictures. 

This so far has been a huge second hand project and the army is gonna need some work. But that hasnt curbed my excitement for this game yet. 

The battle tonight takes place in early August of 1945 in one of the pockets of resistance held out by remnants of the Kwantung Army. The wounded had been left behind to die and what little ammo and equipment that could be scavenged has been scrapped together for the defenders to try hold out. With honour they will fight to the death, against the most veteran and elite army in the world at the time, the Soviet Red Army.

When to Surrender?

We have all been in situations where defeat seems inevitable and we simply start losing joy in the game. This is pretty normal and nobody loves losing, but its times like these when we must remember that there is a player on the other side and that it may be better to simply fight it out to the end. So I thought I would do a post on something that bugs me when I wargame. And that is the art of surrendering.
