Do you play tabletop wargames?
No, of course not. Tabletop wargamers are so nerdy they make PC fanboys look cool and studly. 34%  34%  [ 24 ]
Yes. I love my little painted figures. I give them all names and stroke them every night. I live for weapons damage charts. 5%  5%  [ 4 ]
I used to, but discovered girls. 54%  54%  [ 38 ]

Making progress with the current project, which will be modern warfare with The Russkis invading Germany.

Russian soldiers: they're 20mm tall and based on 1p coins (to give you an idea of the scale), so if the painting looks rough up close it's because they're bloody tiny.

The US infantry just started:

Some vehicles on the go - the Abrams and BTR-80 are prepaints which need repainting.

I've also got a few more to build (plus an AH64, an A-10 and a Mig-23):

A couple of model railway buildings built and undercoated - there are another 3 now done since these photos with 2 more to do:

And I scratch built a garage - can't really see due to my shit photography but it's cladded with small wooden planks, made from coffee stirrers. Took a sodding age to cut those up.

The plan will be to have 4 landscape tiles, perhaps 18 or 24 inches to a side. I have loads of trees to go in as well.

I will be bringing this to Cott8ge :) There are some relatively fast play rules I've dug out which with a bit of modification will make for a fun game.

How would the A-10 and Mig work on a tabletop war game? I can see how the choppers can hang about but the planes wouldn't like that so much.

Looking good btw!

They'd more be a one turn deal, so the model would be there simply to indicate an airstrike that turn, I think. Fuck's sake man, any excuse for a bloody warthog model.

I'm making some flying bases for the vehicles - CD base, with a large washer and nut, and then an extendable aerial type thing with a magnet on the top glued into the nut. The aircraft will then have magnets or steel washers on their undersides to connect up. The base will of course get all tittivated up.

The paint job? A lot better than I could do but it's not particularly great compared to any of the stuff you see placing in miniature painting competitions

I'm more impressed with the opening doors. My Heroquest set has only got cardboard doors.
