Choices of the week #13

What what what! This review is published on Monday! Indeed it is. After reflexion, I've come to consider the practicality of the Monday post for the review, since it allows me to read a bit more posts, published during the evening/night. So, from now on, The weekly review will be online on Mondays. Cheerio


La vague bleue et le remaniement ne sont  rien en comparaison de ce post. En effet, je change mon habitude, avec desormais la publication de ma revue des blogs les lundis au lieu des dimanche. La raison est simple: je ratais toujours quelques posts que je ne savais ou mettre. Le mal est donc repare.


Let's start with the batreps, and first, we have a Steampunk rescue attempt of Her Majesty:

A bit of Dead's Man Hande:

One of the "interesting-as-always" games by Postie, this time in the Sudan:

A bit of 25mm ACW, using Fortune and Glory:

And another Postie game! This time set in the Ancient Rome, where sneaky and bastardly Romans try to impose their rule over a nice tribe, by taking hostages and plunder!

Now, a bit of Do-it-yourself, starting with some nice trenches. Pretty clear, so I might have a go myself:

A TV building. Always worth a look at, since we could use the inspiration. So far, two parts are published:

And if you want to work on your jungle scenery, this is for you:

And now the pure eye-candy, with first the Lusignans arriving at Acre, in 28mm. And don't miss the other post, when the King of France makes an appearance ;)

Then, a bit of MADNESS! This is a SPARTA army, in 15mm:

Just for the sheer pleasure of drooling over Saxon Dog's wonderful shieldwork:

Next, some very nice 28mm mounted Frankish knights, ready to charge at the infidels:

Time to have a look at the smaller scales, with first some 10mm Seleucid cataphracts:

And then a bit of Prussian Nappy, in 6mm, from Ian. I really struggle with this scale, and can only paint tanks:

Speaking of tanks, you'll find some exquisite examples of pure Soviet Cold war design here, in 15mm:
