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.

Post Cancon Report

My Post Cancon Report.

Cancon is over for another year, was good to get back to an Aussie con,  unfortunately this year, I didn’t get any time to go around and talk to anybody, or take photo’s or really do anything fun.

As it turned out Blood bowl took a lot longer than I had thought. in-between games I was just trying to recover enough before the next game.

That said I had 8 great games against people I have never played, and really at a con that is pretty good.  Blood Bowl was right next to Crystal Dragon, there were some fantastic paint jobs there, look out for some of those Hatchlings over the next few years, they have some talent that will only grow.

I did miss the Bloggers meetup I would have liked to meet some people but it was just a bad timing thing, I still had to recover from the day before and had the first BB game I was not in a good place, plus I had to get my Entry for Crystal Dragon sorted.

The demo games I did see looked good, the 3mm Cold War gone hot was out but I didn’t get to see much, and I didn’t get to do any shopping either.

On Saturday you could hardly move, that is the most people I have seen at cancon on any single day I can remember. Hopefully that turns to bums on seats in the future.

Blood bowl for me was a new experience, it was great to play at cancon, everybody was fantastic. some great banter in between turns so in all a great experienced, I finished towards to bottom, my poor team got pounded in the first two games and never recovered, that is a risk you run with low AV teams.

Was great catching up with everybody that I have not seen in a while and hope to see them all again soon.

SO Post Cancon I have taken a touch of time away from painting, I will get back in to it now, I have many projects I want to get on to. I also really want to get into the projects I have.  I need to finish the rest of the Blood Bowl teams I have.

Richard Sharpe my Crystal Dragon Entry

Richard Sharpe is a fictional character by Bernard Cornwell, for the Sharpe series set within the Napoleonic Wars, all the way from India to after the wars in 1820. This series span off a TV series staring Sean Bean, named Sharpe.

I have here an Andrea Miniature in 54mm scale of Sharpe, this is my first entry in to the big model format, and I hope to do this model justice and be able to enter this into painting comps.

Old Games Revived

Old Games revived, sometimes they are revived because they are good systems that you just needed a break from, sometimes nostalgia, and sometimes because the game went from a wild power creep to something else.


Enter Malifaux, the knights had some encouragement but some have gone back to look at the game.
