Taking the Uber Pledge, Colours and Kickstarter.

I, Eddie 'Fez-man' Turner, do here by honestly Uber-pledge to only purchase new models once I have painted two equivalent models from my existing collection.

There, I am actually bound by this now.

So I'm lucky that I've already pledged for a Platoon of 28mm Finns on the Baker Company 'Winter War' Kickstarter:

One platoon of Winter Fins for the early war invasion by the Soviets. As I know our local Soviet nutter Tuffskull Townsend will inevitability end up with an early war Soviet army, I jumped in. Then the total climbed. And Climbed. And Climbed.

With the free unlocked stretchgoals, I am now going to have more that 1,000pts for Bolt Action. I'll be blogging these guys when they arrive! (The Fins are in the new Italy and Axis book due in Nov)

How did I find this awesome deal? I was checking out another kickstarter I have backed - Now you see why I needed the pledge! 

My good friend Brian runs Anarchy Models (Who do many many awesome things, click here!) and is an award winning painter. He decided that the airbrushing community didn't have anyone supplying them with amazing stencil/masks. So he created this monster of a kickstarter:

Do check it out, these things are amazing! 

So, we went to colours last Sunday, and managed to take an entire album of photos:

So... Generic.

 Yup. Thats it.

Sorry for getting carried away with the awesomeness that was inside, all the retailers, displays and even just the Tournament armies from the Flames of War games were superb!

I'll do better next show, honest!

 I picked up some great books, some basing material (coming to the FJ bases soon). Some more PSC basecoat sprays (Dunklegelb, British Armour, US Armour), and third Kingtiger, and this tank of awesomeness:

There's a Maus, laus, about this haus!

All these will be reviewed in due time, but if you have any preferences, then comment below!

Its the pink-wafter biscuit foam effect (tm)

Oh, and my girlfriend got some pink and white foam from KR cases. Shes still smiling over it. Will post pictures of the Bolt Action US Airborne in pink foam when we swap the cases over.....

US vs Soviets on the left, Panthers vs Brits on the right

Once we got back from Newbury, we thought we would try out the Tank Aces 'Scrapyard' mission as we are going to run the campaign at the games club in October. Yes, that is 15+ soviet tanks for under 500pts.

Tank wrecks everywhere. Was a draw after all the dust settled!

Scrapyard indeed, my panthers got eaten by fireflies. Oh well, I'm thinking of using Hummel tigers :-)

Sorry for the scatterbrain post, will get back to the normal schedule shortly!
