Mix It Up!

So, believe it or not, I don't just paint WW2 figures! Being part of TCOW, I get the chance to play a whole heap of games...mostly because we all have gamer ADHD and cant really stick to one system.

And given the amount of choice we have as gamers these days, why the hell would we?! There are so many new and exciting games on the market, it really is the golden age of gaming!

One of the latest ones to enter my repertoire is Frostgrave from Osprey. This is fantasy skirmish gaming and it really is awesome (he says having not actually played a game yet). You take on the role of a Wizard and his apprentice, hire a heap of underlings and go treasure hunting in the Frozen City of Feldgast.

If you want to watch some games in action, can I recommend you check out Guerrilla Miniature Games on least until I get some games filmed!

This being a painting blog and all, you should take a look at some painting then! Here is, without any ado whatsoever...

Gefuko the Illusionist!

I'm thinking about brightening up the edges on the tunic just so they pop a little more and basing is going to be a lot of fun here. I finally get to use my snow basing kit! Woohoo!!

As always, please let me know what you think.

Stand 1 - Complete!

I've done it! Well, the first stand at least. All based and ready to hit the tables. I'm pretty pleased with it actually...

I'd really like to hear your feedback as well! Leave a comment!

EW Kradshutzen - 1 December

Honestly, I have a good excuse for not getting any painting done! Actually! I was visiting the mother country (Australia) with my daughter and then watching the cricket. Hey, man cannot survive on toy soldiers alone, right?

So, a little progress made with 3 more bikes getting the treatment. They're just needing some weathering and a little more detailing and I think they're done. A couple of MG bikes thrown in there for good measure as well to balance the whole deal out.

I think the thing that going to take the longest to get through are the riders and crew (as well as the dismounted guys when I get around to them!). Given that I'm going to be painting most of them in Oak Leaf camo and that I'm really wanting to pick out some detail on these, its just gonna add to the process really.

Fortunately, I've had a little practice in doing Oak Leaf... albeit at a different scale!

EW Kradschutzen - 17 November

So with the test 'cycle done, its time to move on to the (insert sarcastic tone) funnest part of the process! Assembling all these bad boys and getting them undercoated and ready for painting.

I've decided to paint them in groups of 4 to make things a little easier, but have given myself a head start on the assembly process by getting 8 our of the way.

Don't know what happened with the models, but there was a shitload of flash on these. I hate cleaning flash. But, I managed to get 8 done in about an hour and 3 of them undercoated (with their riders and crew) ready for some paint over the next couple of days. That shouldn't leave much left in the box....

ARRRRGHHH! I am mad!!

EW Kradschutzen - 16 November

So, rather than getting all the bikes assembled and ready to go, I decided that I wanted to get one of them painted up in a little bit of a test scheme first. My intention is to have these based as SS Kradshutzen and since I've been getting really good at painting Oak Leaf camo on my Bolt Action SS, I decided to enhance the pain a little.

Here is the first bike, all done and ready for some mates to join him.

EW Kradschutzen - 12 November 2015

Taken from

So this really is the project that's started this blog really. Next year, I'll be once again playing in the longest running FoW tournament in the world; Panzerschreck. This is typically a 2000 point doubles (1000 each) LW tournament. Next year though, the event will be an EW event and as I dont currently have an EW army, I need to get one done.

Now, I like to take interesting forces to tournaments and games so I thought, why not a Kradschutzen force? How tough could that be....?

Well, over the next year or so, we'll find out.


Not me.

Welcome, welcome one and all! My name's Greg and I paint miniatures as part of my hobbying. I also wargame, board game, card game....pretty much game.

I've undertaken a new project for my Flames of War army collection recently which has prompted me to create this blog. I'll be posting progress of that army as well as other things that I'll be doing along the way.

If you're interested, I also co-host a hobbying podcast called Behind Enemy Lines and I also look after the blog for my wargaming club, TCOW.

So welcome and enjoy.
