Internal CONflict Rhineland 2024

The Internal CONflict is actually the first wargaming event I participate in this year. Due to multiple schedule collisions I wasn't able to visit any shows early to this date, as you can see from my event schedule. What does Internal mean regarding the CONflict? Well, it is not an open event, but internal affair and you have to be invited to tag along.

But (!) this is the first time, that I will host a demo table as well and I'm really looking forward to it. And obviously, we wouldn't show up empty handed, so we packed the car with some snacks (make sure those are non-greasy, as you don't want Orange Cheeto Dust on your miniatures) and drinks, as well as gaming materials. I'll go into that later, what my essentials for a convention are.

Regular readers know - no event report without a proper parking lot picture, and as the CONflict is held at the clubhouse of a local rifle club, parking is not an issue. Beside that, the hosts provide us optionally with a full catering, (breakfast, lunch and dinner from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning, along with a broad variety of drinks).

Since the third shipment the issues are bundled in packs of 6 for subscribers, and this will continue until the end of the run. The issues themself are packed differently for subscribers from the way you will find them at your local newsagent.

April 2024 review

Welcome to May 2024! A lot of things going on behind the scenes, as May is packed with tasks. Just last friday the 4th shipment of Warhammer Age of Sigmar Stormbringer arrived!

Age of Sigmar Stormbringer Magazine 14 to 19 Age of Sigmar Stormbringer Magazine 14 to 19 Warhammer Age of Sigmar Stormbringer Premium Issue - Krondys Son of Dracothion

While we continue with the Stormcast Eternals warband for Warcry, a lot of the content might be interesting for reviews, just like we did with the Annihilators. With the items from the Stormbringer shipment 3 (Issue 08 to 13) and shipment 4 (Issue 14 to 19), we will very likely cover the following kits, including two Warhammer Underworld warbands:

Star Wars Legion – Crashed X-Wing

We are going to take a deep dive into Star Wars for a few weeks and we start with the SWL 1000 - Crashed Ex-Wing Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars Legion.

Star Wars Legions - Battlfield Expansion Crashed X-Wing Star Wars Legions - Battlfield Expansion Crashed X-Wing

Along with the regular units, Asmodee / Atomic Mass Games released supplements for the game that not just worked as terrain pieces, but covered rules like scenarios and additional gaming material to it. In this case the crashed X-Wing isn't alone, but comes with a female pilot, which doubles as a mission objective.

Age of Sigmar – Stormcast Eternals Lord Imperatant with Gryph Hound

With issue 08 of Age of Sigmar Stormbringer we get another hero for the Stormcast Eternals, a Lord Imperatant with Gryph Hound. Don't worry, this is not one of the models that is going to be culled.

Age of Sigmar – Stormcast Eternals Annihilators

I grabbed these Annihilators as a reinforcement for the Warcry Stormcast Eternals Warband, that I built from the Stormbringer subscription. While I was looking, if I could get the push-fit ones from Dominion, the price of the proper multi-part kit was so close, that I went for the "real deal".

These are like I said, the multi-part not push-fit from Dominion (picture on the left), and you get a box with three sprues, options for having them either wield a two-handed hammer or hammer and shield, along with three round bases and an instruction leaflet including the warscroll. The price of these is 45 EUR RRP, but I managed to pick them up at a sale for 27 EURs.

Bolt Action M18 Hellcat

This kit has been released for a while, but somehow the plastic kit of the M18 Hellcat hid right under our radar, as I already have the resin kit by Warlord Games in my collection. Beyond that we covered the M10 Wolverine and M36 Jackson Tank Destroyer on here in the past. But today is about the Warlord Games / Italeri plastic kit.

Just like the M10 Wolverine, the M18  Hellcat is a 1:56 / 28mm scale kit manufactured by Italeri, and thus is rather a model kit than a gaming piece.

March 2024 review

While longer than february, the month of march felt shorter. So what happened?

This month two deliveries of Stormbringer arrived, with most recently the 3rd shipment of magazine 8 to 13, we already covered on here.

Warhammer Fantasy – Classic Bretonnian Squires

Among the releases Games Workshop provided with one of the last waves for the Bretonnians in Warhammer The Old World were some not made-to-order classic miniatures, the Bretonnian Squires with Bows. I have used the metal casting for classic OOP miniatures in the past, most recently with some Bretonnian characters on foot and mounted on a Pegasus.

With the squires, I bought those blisters as well, but unlike in the past, it took quite long to deliver. Usually the items are sent out so that they arrive on release day, but it seems that is not the case more, in my case they even shipped them after the release day and only arrived a week later.

If you want to take a look back on the last shipment, issues o4 to 07, you can do so here.
