Complete, Generic/Dutch army TYW.

Finally I can put the TYW project on the shelf, of course I can allways add more to the project but at the time I WILL NOT...

Its painted as a generic TYW army but was intended to be Dutch army from the beginning and the theme sort of stuck.

Missing 4 banners but otherwise the army is finally complete.
Order of battle:
3 Command units/markers 80, 60 and 40mm circular bases
7 Pike and shotte regiments 2 bases of pikes and 4 bases of muskets and 24 minis per regiment
3 Cavalry regiments 4 bases and 12 models per regiment
3 Cuirassiers regiments 4 bases and 12 models per regiment
2 canon bases

All based for FOG:R (DBX standard), but is more likely to be played with the "No quarters" rules. 

The army is primed with Army painter Brown Leather, and painted with mostly Vallejo model range with a few exceptions, then the minies then are inked with Devlan Mud from Games Workshop, see the painting Tutorial form more details.

Minies are mostly Warlord and a washing few numbers of Renegade minies.

Command bases/markers

Cavlary regiments

Standard infantry regiment

Take aim

Hold the line

The Shaker guns from Warlord

Banners still 4 missing and I think I need to ad some details

Stop drinking and get to work

First look at the Game Dust Tactics...

Got Dust Tactics today from Alphaspel.
First impression!
Nice models, nice set of rule books and scenario books, well packed and a bit higher details on the minies then expected.

Down side:
The box was miss backed, one of the Mechs had 2 right arms instead of 1 leftie and 1 rightie, not Alphaspels wrong doing and they are to contact the supplier to have it fixed hopefully to next week.

The models are delicate perhaps a bit to delicate, the plan was to repaint them and so will be done but not in the planed way, they need a lot more attention then I expected. And that in a way of not being poorly done, but to the point of being more detailed then expected. And therefor a bit more fragile then they needed to be...

The tow righties...
Ludwig ?

Char cards

Allies Walker body
The Airbrush will have to come out to fix this of that I'm sure...

More images and more about the rules when we get there...

Panther, 10 subjects and their Stories

10 Panthers, 10 different destinies and 13 stories to tell them,,
 I did choose not to read all 13 stories, I only read the foreword and 3 of the stories written by Mirko Bayerl, they where in my eyes the centerpiece in the book and the most well built model and diorama in the collection of models. 
Mirko wrote 3 articles about the SS panther AJ9 which later was destroyed by its own crew due to lack of petrol and ammunition, so to prevent it from ending up in the hands of the Russians then blew it up.
The stories about the AJ9 also contains eyewitness reports from a man that was 13 at the time and on location photos, both historical and pictures taken by Mirko when he visited the locations. 
And topped off in the last article with pictures and details about the diorama and the model. I my self has had the privilege to follow the progress and see the amount of work that Mirko put in to the diorama and to admire the result first hand.

The rest of the book contains some nice and detailed articles about 9 other Panthers in different versions and locations during the WWII, some fiction and some fact, like the AJ9.  

Modelers and authors.
Mirko Bayerl, Roddy Macdougall, Phill Stutcinskas, Darren Gawle, Lester Plaskitt, Gunnar Jansson, Roger Hurkmans, Markus Eriksson, Brian Murdoch and  Toni Canfora are the authors of 13 articles about 10 different Panthers, all presented with well written articles, detailed photos and some relay nice scale models and dioramas.

Where to buy:
Published by Canfora
ISBN 978-91-976773-5-6
Or if you are in Stockholm, Sweden, the book is available at Wentzels.

Warlord TYW...

Today, well yesterday if we are to be completely honest, I decide that the best place finaly  make my TYW project 100% done was to bring it to the club. And therefor I did, and now all the minis for the TYW project is at the club.
I fixed all the bases for all the infantry, lock stock and barrel and all the infantry allso are coated with GW Purity seal and dusted with Valejo Dullcoat, its like magic,

Some playing was also done with Victory Without Quarters(VWQ), this is the second time we had tried this game and I think its here to stay.

Perfect for scenarios and smaller campaigns todays battle was a bit to big, the weakness is the way units are activated, by randomness, and therefor some units will be unactivated round after round. I had units that had not moved or fired , almost the length of the game, the rules for activation has to be looked in to.


In a few short days its time for my 40th birthday av this sis my fellow comrades decide to make something out of...

And therefor the supriced  me with both, cake and singing to day at the club.

Thanks dudes, I was supriced and touched by your gesture, this is why I'm proud to say that I have nerds as my friends.

Victory Without Quarters

Today We played as a complement to the more complex rules of FOG:R, the set of rules "Victory without quarter". It's written for ECW but we played it  with the intention of TYW. The wars are not that far apart and therefor no problems but the ECW is e light version of TYW, with fewer unit types and lesser soldiers.

The rules are quick and easy to learn, but we had to make up some house rule to increase the flow of the game, for instance changed so that the combat values never can be lower then 1+ and higher then 6+.
And then we have to tweek some of the unit types to make the game more adapted to TYW and the unit types used then.

We are going to play this agin this weekend and I will give you a deeper runt trough of the game then, and perhaps an Arr as well.

Here are some pictures of to days game, minis are mainly Perry Miniatures and Warlord miniatures, painted by Nils Idemalm and Ogge.
