Belgian Infantry

At long last I got off my butt and did some painting and basing. This is the infantry element of my Belgian Blitkrieg Commander Battlegroup. And a spotter who is attached to an off-board battery of 105mm Artilley Guns.

The formation consists of a HQ, 8 Infantry Sections (2 upgraded with Boyes Anti-Tank Rifles), and 2 Maxim HMG sections. I broke a figure while basing. I cut off the broken figures legs and glued him back on the base as a land mine victim. Problem solved. Figures are 15mm True North. Click on the pictures to get a better look.

My local wargaming store made a commercial. I go there a lot.

Suppression Markers

I have not been doing much painting lately. No reason for that really. I just finished making some suppression markers for my Blitzkrieg Commander Belgian army. Figures are 15mm Peter Pig. They are dead French figures masquerading as dead Belgians.

Warlord Ancient Battles (The other WAB)

Here's a topic I am very excited about with the release of Warlord Games Ancients Black Powder style rule book. SOCAL Warhammer Podcast has interviewed John Stallard from Warlord Games about the new rule book which is growing Internet fame as being called Warlord Ancient Battles (or the other WAB). John has stated the rules will be released early in the new year and the core writer is Alessio Cavatore of Games Workshop fame. It looks like many supplements are planned and many UK ancient figure manufactures have jumped on board in a corroborative wargamer effort to create a playable rule system.

If you want to know more down load Episode 33 of SOCAL. Link below (although you will need to listen to the English Civil War bit first).
