Alban Miniatures v Warlord Miniatures 95th Rifles

Alban Miniatures recently went back to being a private collection again after being on the general market for some time, they made a whole range Napoleonic figures in 1/56th scale (28mm). So the only thing to do is look at the Alban Miniatures beside the Warlord Miniatures for the same unit.   So I choose the 95th Rifles as the miniatures that I will look at.

Both Warlord Games and Alban Miniatures make figures for the 95th rifles, and I do enjoy the 95th rifles, it had to be done.

Rubicon Models Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer Review

Firstly a big thanks to Tyler for the series on Muskets and Tomahawks, it was a big help as I went through surgery and gives all of us a chance to read well constructed articles that don’t ramble on like mine tend too, about one of the most colourful and fun periods to game in.  I do wounder if Tyler would like to do a series on Bolt Action at some point, as Tyler dips his toe in to 28mm WW2.  I am back now and we are off to a running start, while recovering I had a chance to catch up on some new and old projects.  So here is the first.

Rubicon Models released their Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer, well I had to have one, not only because it is a cool model, but because I really wanted to do a force for Bolt Action with Hetzers in it.

A Year in Review

A Year in Review, and what a year it has been, I get to look back at the year and see what we have done, and where we are going.   Firstly it has been a long year, much has happened.  At the start of the year we didn’t really know where we would be by June, then along came Bane of War which was fantastic, I am sad that I will miss this next year. Adepticon which I will miss next year again I am pretty sad to miss this, it is a great Con and you have to go to it.  Then we moved back to Aus in May, and I traveled down to Hobart for a Flames comp, that was a load of fun.

Rubicon Models M4A3 Sherman 105

I picked up the Rubicon Models M4A3 Sherman kit some time ago, I have finally had a chance to sit down and build this kit.

I am always impressed with the amount of options that Rubicon Models packs into each kit.  It is something I look forward to each time I build one of these kits.
