Firestorm Red Thunder: Battle of the Tulips   Leave a comment

Sorry no pictures of Tulips! ¬†However, it was one heck of a battle ūüôā

My friend Brian and I have been putting together two new armies for Team Yankee.  He has been working on an East German Army and I have assembled a British Army.  They arent fully painted, I know it is a sin, but we wanted to see how this works.

Meet Lulzbot Mini

Firestorm Red Thunder: Onward to Frankfurt   Leave a comment

This is the second for us in the Team Yankee Firestorm campaign.  This week both my son and daughter played and I filled the role as game master.  In my role I tried to provide unbiased advice for both.  They didnt always take it!!  I spent the week painting up many models to bring them to game quality.  I still have several steps to go on a number of models.

You Tube Resources   Leave a comment

I have always know You Tube was available and there was a good amount of content. ¬†It just never peaked my interest because I had blogs and manufacturers sites to use for reference while painting. ¬†That has all changed in the last couple months as I delved into research for the¬†Samurai game Test of Honour… Wow there is some cool stuff out there!

A couple Samurai below from Warlord Games for Test of Honour with Plasticraft gate and walls.  They are a work in progress!
