More promo stuff:Pup-Up Terrain!

A Kickstarter that is in its final 48 hours right now so go check it out right away!
This is brilliant. Cardboard 3D terrain that folds up for storage has been done before, but I have never seen it done this well and with such clever mechanics. Just take a look at the video on the front page and you will see what I mean.

I have gone for the PDF version simply because shipping to Sweden will double the cost of buying the ready-printed stuff...and because with a PDF I can print a new piece every time I mess up during construction. Edward Scissorhands I am not.

So, go ahead, pledge $18 and join me in a festival of cardboard and glue sticks this coming Christmas!

More Dust troops and a commercial

I just finished painting an SSU Command squad. Dust figures are a joy to paint and turn out nice even with a rather basic paint job, in this case inspired by the Soviets in the old classic Red Dawn.

Second point: TooFatLardies just released their Summer Special. £6 will get you 130 pages of stuff ranging from scenarios to an interview about writing wargaming rules. If you play any of the TFL games, it's a no-brainer. If you play other games, for example Bolt Action, it is a great source for scenarios and good ideas.

Get it now!

A bunch of Germans

These guys are from CP Models. I am not sure the M38/40 early type smocks most of them are wearing was ever made in Splittertarn, but by the time I remembered to check it was too late and they will have to do as they are.

The fellow at the back in Feldgrau and carrying a Panzerfaust is from Plastic Soldier Company .

First Dien Bien Phu figures!

These are the first of the Red Star Miniatures DBP range. I have been looking forward to getting my hands on them since the first preview on TMP and here they are!
First a shot of them lined up on the beach near my house.

Next, a few pics of them moving through the gra...jungle at the picnic site.

The first French figures are on my paint table right now, more to come.
