Welcome to the New Look

I changed up the look of the site recently.  I hope you enjoy the changes. The new layout should scale much better to a wider variety of screen sizes and resolutions. It is also a more modern theme that supports more plugins. You now have the ability to share articles from The Rules Lawyer on…

 

Matilda II Infantry Tank

The Matilda has been a bit of a mixed bag for me in Flames of War. In mid-war It just isn’t that great of a tank. Its slow, it has a weak gun, and its armor is easily penetrated by many tanks and anti-tank guns. In early-war the Matilda II is a monster. It is…

 

‘Honey’ Stuart Tank

I love Stuart tanks. They are fast. They are cheap. They have enough armor to make sure your enemy has to take a big stick in order to deal with them. They are ideal for exploiting holes or flanks,  and can be on top of the enemy before he’s ready for them. I try to…

 

Heavy Gear Schnell Alpha 1.21

I haven’t worked on this in awhile, but I never did post the latest changes to the game system I wrote for the heavy gear models. Overall goal of the system was to resolve some of the more fiddly bits of the game system- EW and an overly complex cover system. I also wanted to…

 

Back Catalog Minis

I’m going to spend a few weeks posting my back catalog of miniatures. This is stuff that goes all the way back to the very first British motor company box that I bought at Gencon very shortly after v2 of the rules was released. Not all of it is painted by me. I’ve commissioned a few things and…

 

Italian Misc.

I’ve been working through a large backlog of painting recently. These were partially finished a long time ago and just now finished up. I’ve long since given up on scenic objectives in tournament play. They just get in the way and discourage me from placing troops in a legal spot. The transport I just never…

 

So long Malifaux

The last of my Malifaux stuff is gone.  I sold the whole lot on ebay a couple weeks ago. I had a couple problems with Malifaux. Wyrd is slow on releasing models. Expect to wait a year to be able to play with everything in your force from any new book. They also said their…

 

Heavy Gear Blitz

I picked up a new game at GenCon- Heavy Gear Blitz. Its been around a long time in one form or another. There is a RPG of it, and there has been a tactical game for it for ages. I last looked into it back in its last revision and the newest rules are much…

 

Airplane Camo Archive

Found this Russian site not to long ago. Its a great compendium of all sorts of airplane camo and markings. Great if you’re researching how to paint up some planes. Wings Palette

 

Steamborg Executioner

This is one of the models I painted for a friend, and what a model it is. I really like the sculpt and level of detail, but man was this a PITA to put together. I think its the hardest mini ever for me. The legs I ended up gluing down with super glue and…
