It is mid of March, so it is time for the spring Bitbox! A tabletop flea market in Mülheim an der Ruhr. The opening times were shortened from 11:00 to 14:00 and for the first time I had the sensation of queueing at this event.
Third and last part of russian tank week is the KV-1 / KV-2 heavy tank kit by Warlord Games / Italeri.
Next up in russian tank week is the tank destroyer / assault gun kit SU-85 / SU-122 by Rubicon Models in this review.
Welcome to russian tank week, comrade! Start of this short series of 3 russian tank reviews will be the IS-3, Iossif Stalin, heavy tank recently released by Warlord Games for Bolt Action and Konflikt 47.
In december I already covered the Rubicon multi-variant kit of the M10/M36 Tank Destroyer, now it is time in this review to take a closer look on the M10 Tank Destroyer by Warlord Games / Italeri.
As mentioned in the article about planing a german warband, I started assembling the plastic and metal miniatures from the matching Warlord Games boxed set. As the metal torsos all wore fur, I added those fur cloaks to all of the miniatures. Fur is quite easy to do and there are several ways to do so, among others using a press mold by Micro Art Studios. I used a sculptor tool with a sharp, pin like tip.
The latest supplement for Frostgrave was once again financed by Nickstarter, Northstar's own crowdfunding solution, and brought along with the "Forgotten Pacts" expansion a brand new box of plastic miniatures. This set of multi-part barbarians will be covered in this review.
On SuperBowl Sunday I got in my car and headed north towards the 5th Narrenball 2017 - a Blood Bowl Tournament and official NAF event.
During the ride I was greeted by a wall of fog in the Siegerland. A bit later I arrived in Remscheid, at the Rack-n-Roll Billard Cafe.
As I took care of the Rubicon Models StuG just a few days ago, I already mentioned, that I've been tinkering with that kit.
The next Bolt Action supplement, Battle of the Bulge, is just around the corner and we have a lot of winter troops around. I have a fable for captured vehicles and special vehicles, so I decided to build my winter germans around the Unternehmen Greif and one of the Kampfgruppe X-Z.
I already prepared a Panther M10, using the resin kit by Warlord Games and adding a few parts from the Rubicon plastic Panther kit.
After covering the Maus and some Sci-Fi reviews, it is time to come back to "regular" tanks, like the StuG III. I covered the Warlord / Italeri one last november, and now I want to share the counterpart by Rubicon Models.
