Several of us in the HAWKs have decided to focus on Barbarossa for a number of our convention scenarios in 2019. Chris will likely run a number of LSNC 1941 games, and I’ll be focusing on Combat Patrol(TM) skirmish games. I have recently completed these two tanks and a squad of infantry in great coats.
I started with Army Painter angel green and then applied a quick shade wash. When I then sprayed the vehicles with Army Painter anti-shine matte finish, i got some crazing effects on the paint. This is the second time this has happened to me, so there is some interaction between the Army Painter quick shade and anti-shine matte finish that I don’t understand.
Don’t miss out on a all the fun of Barrage. The schedule is nearly full, but there is still room for you — either as a game master or as a participant. See www.hawks-barrage.org for more details.

Back in the good old days, Ral Partha made ONE set of figures, called Roomans. These were anthropomorphized kangaroos with spears and shields. For some reason, the quirkiness of them always appeared to me, and whenever I found a pack in a bin, I would pick it up. Over time, I amassed a pretty sizable collection of them. We have just learned that the current owner of the molds is fixing up the master and is getting ready to re-release them. I also hope that means that new poses will be coming soon. You can click these images to enlarge them.
I am excited to hear these will be available soon, and I hope this means that additional poses and weapons will be available soon as well.
