Warzone Resurrection – BAUHAUS Army Commission Showcase

Well guys and gals a month has passed and I haven’t played a Wargame……….I am feeling serious withdrawl symptoms!!! I have however begun painting again and as those close to me know it is the painting side of the hobby that I enjoy the most and as such I am one happy Hobbyist! So without further ado I will begin this months blog post coming to you direct from Scorpius GLC’s “World of Wargming” Studio!

Untitled14Warzone Resurrection has been on my viewfinder since it originally went to Kickstarter, at that time I couldn’t invest but after an AWESOME Demo Day buy Ant and the guys from Leicester Phat Cats the other month I knew this game was for me!!! I set about deciding on factions and found it really difficult to choose just one as I really liked the Capitol, Dark Legion and Bauhaus. I finally decided on Capitol for myself and Dark Legion for my son (as he loved the Demo he had), so I saved up my pennies and bought the Rulebook, the Capitol Starter Set and the Dark Legion Starter Set……..but oh how I wish I could have got the Bauhaus as well……..well luckily for me I was given a commission to paint up a Bauhaus Army for Sunjeev from Portal Wargaming Centre!!

The brief from Suni was that he wanted the force to be bright and I had just the plan for this force…White and red armour with dark blue/grey uniform, to go with this I also went with destroyed Moon Base themed bases. Here are the models that I have painted as part of the commission, drop me a comment and let me know what you think!!

Thanks for taking your time to read this blog post and looking at my painting, I hope you like what you see as I really enjoyed this project! As I said above this commission allowed me to show the love that I had for the faction without having to buy a third faction!

Salute 2014

So me, my business partner and a couple of the guys from Portal Wargaming Centre

made the trip to the ExCel centre in London for the 2014 Salute Wargames Show.

As we approached the ExCel Centre excitment grew for the day ahead, we had no real plan but knew we’d be eyeing up things from the guys at West Wind Productions as well as a few other manufacturers. We entered the event on traders badges thanks to Wendy and Andy Cooper from West Wind and had a brief walk around as the traders were setting up and caught a glimpse of the awesome demo game from our friends over at Leicester Phat Cats, Ant & Coops. Then after a brief chat with Tim Ryder at the West Wind stand we met our friend who had queued for a ticket and set about exploring!

We saw plenty of cool tables but I couldn’t get a picture of all so here is a coupl that caught my eye:

Then the day was dominated by one  manufacturer – Mierce Miniatures and so Salute Day 2014 Shall be known by the guys from Portal as DARKLANDS DAY!!

We approached the stand and drooled over the sheer scale of the miniatures at hand (pun intended, see pics)

These huge figures are Premium Quality Resin Miniatures, some standing as tall as 200mm high!! They are cast my master craftsmen at Mierce’s own facility and are sculpted by an array of awesome tallent!

We had a chance to watch a demo game and talk to the Managing Director,  as well as the helpful and enthusiastic staff !! We broke away several times but after a few paces found ourselves drooling over the painted miniatures in the cabinets and those on display in bare resin…..and so DARKLANDS day was born!

I cannot praise these models and the gameplay more highly..it is a must for all my fellow #WARMONGERS to check out, oh and did I tell you it is on kickstarter for the next week!?

Go check it out guys and gals, you won’t be disappointed!!
