    Battlefront has updated their KV series of models and I wanted to see how they compare to the old sculpts.

    I love the KV tank in the game. The Kliment Voroshilov, named after the Soviet Defense minster, first made its appearance in the Winter War versus the Finns.

    The performance, with its almost impervious armor, made...

    As miniature wargamers, most of us have the desire to realistically represent past events on the battlefield.  Many of us pick historical games specifically to re-enact battles and wars we have read about or seen in movies.  There is even a subset of us who always strive for very realistic unit construction and repres...

    When I did my first article on Nachtjager I promised you a review of the digital only content after it was released.

    By "Dirty Jon" Baber
    Early War seems to be my jam this past year. With another tournament coming up at the awesome Huzzah Hobbies, I had to take a look at what I might play. The tournament will be 1390 Early War and open to everything. I decide pretty quickly that I will play Germans - my only other option is the Finns, and I am a bit t...

  • Painting helmets

    If you have worn a combat helmet for any length of time you will know that it gets taken off at every chance, dropped on the ground and generally treated rather badly. It is heavy, hot/cold and will constantly annoy you but for all that may save your life so a soldier generally has a love-hate relationship with it. If you lose it then ...

    If there is one faction that is hard to pin down and say "why should I run these?" then surely it must be the Franks.

    Why would anyone want to run a faction that doesn't have any overt Combat abilities?

    I figured since tomorrow is the anniversary of Pickett's Charge and Gettysburg was fought 152 years ago today (an obscure  college professor from Maine fixed bayonets and charged down a hill and into history on this day), I wou...

     With the tree plates and naval terrain done (mostly, more reports to follow on both), the last remaining "big item" is to make some road sections.  I use a very simple method that is way to do and provides good results.  The f...

    Wow it's been awhile but Crossfire has the familiarity of an old, well worn pair of hiking or running shoes.  I mean that in the best way possible.

    This scenario pitted a full strength German infantry Kompanie against a Soviet I...
