The Final Campaign of Bolt Action 1.0

A detachment of heroes from Nopat Club took on to a Bolt Action Crusade and headed to far away place called Lahti on an September Sunday. The day would not be peaceful...

Finnish war 1808-09 -project REBOOTED!

Visiting Little Wars in Stockholm this weekend really got me and my friends fired up on both playing the excellent Pikemans Lament (or Eagle Rampant, see Wargames Illustrated April 2016 issue) AND on getting the armies for it, that is Russians and Fins & Swedes.

I had had a slowly growing Russian army for the Napoleonic  era in my cupboard for a few years and had so far painted only few of them for Retreat from Moscow 1812 games. So off I went to rummage my dash and the pile of lead and plastic came up quite impressive...

Tonite I then went on to kitbash different Napoleonic miniatures to create plastic troopers for 1808 Finns... see the pics on how it turned out!

Bolt Action: In the name of the father

Bolt Action: Hold until relieved

This is a most unlike story of Finnish troops defending a church somewhere very deep behind the enemy lines... so deep that they are attacked by the troops of Imperial Army of Japan!
And yes, you guessed it right: this game is not based on any historical battle!

Another 40K battle against Sons of Ultramar and their
gallant Warmaster Heinrich!

Re-enacting: Viking Market and battle in Pukkisaari

Visited, as I've done many times before again. Nice battle re-enactment and nice handicrafts.

LOTR: Tom Bombadil & Goldberry

Painting Tom & Goldberry

We're going to play the LOTR scenario with Tom and Barrow Wights soon, so I finally got the reason to paint these quite old Mithril Miniatures. I have them as Citadel versions too, but decided to go with these.

See the finalized version
