  1. 8th Edition List Building

    Thanks guys for the feedback, I appreciate it. What points levels are common these days? 1500? 1750?
  2. 8th Edition List Building

    So how are people setting up their forces for both casual and tournament play in the Portland area now that we have both "Power" and "Points"???
  3. Mike's East German Build Log - updated 10/29

    With all of the work I've been doing on the T-72s, don't think for a moment I've completely neglected my NVA BMPs. I didn't go completely mad like with the T-72, but honestly the kit is pretty solid, so I really didn't NEED to and could focus on the one problem area - the fairly naked front! For the top tie downs, I used 0.015" x 0.02" strip styrene. I eyeballed the length, but it is about 0.08". The flaps are made from 0.01" x 0.1" strip, and the length is about 0.135" - again eyeballed based on photos and the kit itself. The circles are cut from 0.01" thick sheet and are punched with a 0.048" punch from my sub-micron set. Placement is by eye based on photos.

  5. Thursdays gameplay at Gaurdian Games 2017

    Won't be able to make it tonight - hoping to make it next week, though my DDR is still in pieces. Should be painted by the EOY... really looking forward to the Stripes releases.
  6. I've got a couple of armies I could dig back out and play... I'll update them per the latest "whatever" FAQ...
  7. Are we going to be limited to the "Armies of Late War" book, or can we use the other books as well?
  8. What era do most people play?

    Most of my armies are LW. One MW army done (but not usable yet). One EW army (and it's a fun one)

    Here's what the dozer blade looks like once it is on the front of the vehicle: ... and all its little friends done now too....

    I'll stop by! :D Unfortunately my armies are currently in a state of disassembly for painting so I won't get a game in...
  11. LW Soviets -recommended lists?

    I ran a Soviet Lend Lease army a couple of years ago... was great fun, but really needed infantry: https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2015/11/soviet-lend-lease-tanks-done-enough.html

    Who likes more detail on their T-72 turrets? Me!!!! I blame the Breakthrough Assault guys for this one... well, at least partially... I sort of knew in my mind that I had to do something about the under-detailed smoke launchers on the front of the T-72 turret, but I wasn't sure what... then I hit their blog, and the rest as they say is history. Blog Entry 1: http://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2017/10/t-72-and-advanced-modeling-syndrome.html Of course, Blog Entry 1 didn't have the in progress photos, so there's Blog Entry 2: https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2017/10/t-72-progress-in-home-stretch.html Sort of looks like a bug... At least until you get the wires bent around... Hoping to get these done this week so they can get primed like the rest of the hull and tracks already are...
