New Years Update...

I know I haven't been around much, and I've not been posting alot lately, this largely because (as some of my longer time subscribers know) i've been having my new house built. Well it's watertight now, and is flying along and we should be in in February.

This has mean't I have spent much of Dec packing and arranging things, putting hobby equipment away into boxes and generally between this, some World War II Painting, gaming on my new PC, work and a hectic Christmas social calender I have neglected you guys! For this I apologise, my new years resolution is to give you more attention, and hit the streets to shift some Christmas Timber.

What's next in 2014?  

1. New updated graphical books. 
2. Return of my caption competition (now have the prizes and will restart this again!).
3. More models!

So without further ado....Some Centurions..


So I bought these to kill two birds with one stone....11 of them for my Jordanian Forces, in Fate of a Nation (Battlefronts recent rules in Wargames Illustrated). However I though I could give other players insight into the Models because they can obviously be used with Swedish and Danish Forces too!

I haven't finished these they do need some Greenstuff to clean them up, so it is early days but for the price point of £5.50 they are decent. I'm pretty sure if you asked for a Multipack of 10 discount they would do it, or you can use my blog Promo Code and order over £100's worth. 

I used BF Crew figures, and the hatches are spare M113 top hatches. I will be adding Camo nets, crates and other little details to make them less generic. However for £60 pounds rather than BF £115 I think they will do. Here is a comparison with a Battlefront WWII Cromwell just for reference:-

Happy New Year and I hope 2014 is a good year for you all!


  1. Awesome tanks. I have to say that (based also on my experience) QRF castings have become crisper and crisper. These meteor Centurions look greats (not if Geoff also do a Teledyine one...). But the one for the later cold war is the MK13 with thermal sleeve and IR. QRF has one, hopefully it is good as the Mk5/2. Mhmmm doing a small Danish force of the jutland command...

    1. As you say the QRF stuff can be great, I have found the odd one that was a bit off and I have found Chas and Geoff do happily replace anything if you find it's not acceptable. I'm pretty liberal as I find cleaning the model up and improving it a bit of challenge, on top of this I use my models as a foundation and add, or build on to them for my needs and to give them a bit of individual flavour.

      I look forward to seeing those Dane's if you don't mind, I don't think we've had a Danish Force Feature yet.

  2. Danes... need to finish the vanilla Soviet first, and also to find sufficent pictures of danish infantry. Then scraping together some money (awful part), but geoff sale is coming. I was really looking forward at Brian M60A2 and hopefully A1 but I have read the sad news on his blog...but hopefully a platoon of Centurions and one of mech infantry is a doable proposition.

  3. Of course now that you have shown those Meteor Centurions... I am also thinking IDF... grrrr....
