Cold war gone hot - Seven Days to the River Rhine



Seems like a 1980´s Cold War gone Hot using the Seven Daysto the River Rhine from Great Escape Games will be the next gaming hype at the club.


At least a couple of games already been played and I know both Russian DDR, West german, American and Swedish forces are in different stages of mobilization...

I started to paint some 15mm Swedes and Russians some month ago so I´m well ahead and got a test game of the rules in the othererday with my son David.

A Meeting engangement between a Platoon of Swedish Armourd Infantry and a platyoon of Russian Armourd Infantry reinforced with twoT-55 tanks. We had a really good game, rules work fine and was quick to get hold of.

The T-55´s and the Russian Infantry from Plastic Soldier Company, rest of the Russians from Flames of War as well as the Swedish Infantry, the Swedish Bv-302 are 3d prints.

Below a map and some pictures from the game.

1930´s Planes and Factory



Some years ago we run a Very Moderate Swedish Conflict campaign at the club (Swedesh civil was during the 1930´s inspired by AVBCW). I have continued to add to my collection for the project and to morrow me and a friend will have a game so I took some pictures of the gamingboard I set up showing some of my latest additions, a Factory from Ziterdes as well as a pair of 1930´s biplanes (that i made out of the 1:55 scale toy plane "Lead Bottom" from the Disney Planes film).

...Rebels and Patriots published by Osprey games. Unfortunate I was not at the UK Games Expo this weekend to recieve the Award for Best Miniature Rules 2019, but my partner in crime Dan Mersey was...

....he apparently did it with a rock-and-roll twist as he smashed the award in the floor when recieving it... by accivent he claim... more a wargaming answer to  Pete Townshed and his guitarr smashing in my mind...

Much glad and honoured to recieve the award !

Painted some fantasy terrain



Sins Salute I been working on some terrain, a pre-painted "towertree" from GF9, some plastc ruins and some 3D printed tree that i got from Joakin a matey at the club that are totaly in to the 3d printing, take a look at his blog.

The tower tree i added a gate on the back and a small roofed window (mordheim part) as well as I re-painted it.

The ruins I put on a base and added a fountain and some rubble.

For the 3d printed logg I added some skulls to realy show that the mushrooms are pisioness.

And last the 3d printed Tree with a doot I made a nice base and added some foulage for the tree crown.

Hope you like them :)
