July's Project

This month is again a Wargods month, we both seem to have a lot of these figures that still need painting. These are the Nekharu, the evil henchmen of the Wargods of Aegyptus Universe. I have 37 to paint ready for August when I will be using them in the third part of the 'Searchers of the Lost Uraei' campaign, the second part of this will hopefully be played this week and pictures and a battle report will appear on the blog.

Albion Defence Force 6mm Finished

The Albion system was founded by explorers from the British Commonwealth. Over the years the history of the original countries has become intertwined with their myths and legends. To this ends King Arthur is now seen as the first King of Albion, a kingdom which covered England, Scotland, Wales, the West Indies, large sections of the Indian subcontinent and Nepal.
The system is ruled by Monarch, currently King Gawain XXI, who is selected by the mysterious ‘sword pulling contest’. They are advised by an elected group called the ‘Round Table’.
On the whole Albion is a peace loving system, although martial skills are highly prized. They have a small, but well equipped and trained standing army. All other citizens are part of the Albion Defence Militia and have to train for at least 1 week every year.
The Air support is provided by Urien Mark IV troop carriers and Merlin Mark V Ground Attack Craft.
The Infantry are shown standing next to the Guinevere APCs. In front are the Tristan scout cars.

The Mechanised Armour Brigade featuring the Lancelot Mark IX MBT, the Camelot Mark VII MBT, the Percival Mark II Tank and the Uthur Mark XII Light tank.

The Power Armoured Unit of Infantry, commonly known as ‘The Pendragons’ with their Gringolet APCs Mark XII & XIV. In front of these are the Ghurkha unit with the Everest Mark V APCs.

Tusk Figures Finished

Well I've got the Tusk figures and dinosaurs finished, which means we'll finally be able to have a game of it next month. So I shall write a review of the game after we have played. Really glad to have finally finished these as they seem to have been sitting half painted for a long time.

June Builds

Only just started June and already I've managed to find time to get 3 15mm Sci-Fi buildings finished. These should go well in our ongoing games.

The round fortifications are made from the ends of rolls of drawing paper.

The Dome building was a piece of scrap plastic I picked up.

These are the partly finished islands for the next of the campaign games for Wargods.

This is what the finished islands should look like. Then it's just a case of making the bridges to go between them.

June Update

As you can see I have managed to finish my May project and almost on time, a minor miracle. Now I've just a couple of bits of scenery to finish and we can carry on the Search Trilogy using the Wargods of Aegyptus rules.

For June I'm trying to get my 6mm Sci-Fi miniatures based for games of Dirtside II and Future War Commander.

Also I'm going to get the Tusk figures, I bought a while back finally painted and gamed with.
