Burrows and Badgers

So Oathsworn have this wonderful little game that Osprey published recently. We had always intended to use the mouselings for a Redwall type game, and this works wonderfully well. The last Kickstarter I got the full set, and with the new kickstarter up and paid for, I decided to try and get these guys all finished off. Still got bases to do, but I need to get more flock, tufts etc before I can decide that, likewise I'm not sure whether to paint the rims of the bases green or not.

Either way, here's the current batch finished with

and without flash.

What A Tanker 15mm Canadians.

So I've had What a Tanker since it came out and played it a handful of times, I already had some Stugs in 15mm from a brief foray into FOW. So I wanted to pick up some Shermans to oppose them. A query on the club facebook got me some unassembled ones so I picked the Canadian 2nd Armoured division to paint them up and here they are, they got their first outing this month for the Club AGM.

I have a tiger to assemble as well that's been lying since the FOW foray, so hopefully soon.

6mm Sci-fi

Last set of catchup's for the moment is a more generic sci-fi force that I've been adding to from a variety of old Copeland models, Marines and Imperial Guard.

15mm Prydians

The colour scheme for this batch are based on the Blood Pack from Mass Effect. The models are Prydian army from Alternative Armies Ion Age.  I've used them before for Firefight (an ages old game from AA) But they will also be used for Tomorrows War and anything else that comes along.

It was really hard trying to get the pictures for these and the NSL troops, the yellow and red of them seems to pick up and reflect the light really badly for the camera.

15mm Ikwen

The low tech insurgents/rebels/downtrodden natives for our Ambush Alley games, we chose not to play the rules in the modern era as per the rules but to set them in a scifi setting.  I need to paint the scenery that I've made to go with this game but here is a quick shot of the Lizard Ikwen.

15mm NSL force

Well It's been a while since I started these guys and I still need to get round to buying them transports and finish off some of their supports (Bikes and combat drones) So here's some of the pics.

We're using them as the higher tech force in Ambush Alley, with some low tech dudes in the form of Ikwen from Alternative Armies to provide the asymmetrical nature of the game. We are preparing to use Tomorrows War, but this version is simpler to learn and read.

1st Israeli Battalion

Well that's the 1st of the Israeli forces done and I think pretty much everything I have available for now.  I need to sit down and properly plan forces and actually buy the remainder for the forces, unless Ric finds anything at Claymore this weekend.

 Without flash above, with flash below. (and seems more accurate)
