FUBAR in Chechnya

Son was home from college for a couple days and we got into some skirmish games. First up was a game of FUBAR. I had the Russians and he played the Chechens mostly represented by Afghan mujahideen in Chechnya around 1999-2000. All miniatures were painted by my son. Terrain was all his effort as well except for a couple Battlefront buildings.  Had a great time and in the end my Russians held the town but barely.  We also played some western skirmish and once he's done his AAR I'll post the link.  Now for the pics. Hope you enjoy.

The Long and Winding Road

Well straights for now. Completed some city streets and dirt roads in 15mm. Going to add some T sections and I think I will have enough. Pics below are somewhat progessive but I forgot a few steps.


And the dirt roads with puddles.





 And what I need after building roads!

More WWII terrain and planning factors for streets, parks etc..

Some more ruined buildings made from foam board and other craft items. I'm  also working out spacing for streets with sidewalks on the eventual village I'm working on. I think I've decided on the two Stug wide street.






Some WWII terrain work

Since I've finished my airborne (pics coming) company my attention has now turned to completing my terrain for WWII. More pics soon

L'Art De La Guerre (ADLG)

I bought these rules recently and read through them once. I have two standing armies (Vikings and Anglo-Saxons). Each army is 25mm and over 100 figures each. Since they are all single based I need to make some sabot bases for them so I can play ADLG. I am researching what is the best (expense and time) method to do these since I will need about 40 bases of 80x40. These will be two smaller armies, less than 150 points each in ADLG terms. Not sure how much I want to add to them for ADLG. My main purpose for getting ADLG is to build two HYW armies in 15mm. I was not that hot on FOG so I wanted to try ADLG. I am open to trying other rules too and it seems like a never ending saga (no pun intended) to find what I like in ancient and medieval rules.






Here is my Viking army laid out on a draft formation for what I have based on 3 corps for ADLG rules.




And bellow are the Anglo-Saxon's I have to work with.




Wolverines!

Just finished these 3 M10 Wolverine tank destroyers. Nothing spectacular and the picture is not great but they are done. Models are Command Decision

Almost a Year has gone by..

since I posted last. I won't bore you with the usual details about life getting in the way. Fact is I have been a lazy blogger, but busy in life. I did however, get some stuff done. I  started my FIW 18mm figures for Sharp Practice with enough Native Americans to last a lifetime. I completed a couple leaders for both the English and the French, and I will post those pics soon. I have finished  my WWII German Grenadier company and from the pics below you can see some of the Blue Moon FIW figures I've started. I am on the tail end of my US Airborne Company too.






I also got in a few games in with my son while he was home on college break. Its nice to have a fellow wargamer in the house. Unfortunately he is as OCD as I am! He does opposite eras than I do so its really nice to have a variety of games to be able to play at anytime. Here is a game of  Fistful of Lead we recently played.
