NATO reinforcements

Only sad news about the spreading of the epidemic 
but I managed to buy and get my nice package of 
6mm-miniatures from the United kingdom before the
closing of the borders.
My last buy was a LOT of miniatures in the scale of 
1/285 but I was missing air-support for my Nato-force 
and was delighted when my friend Michael offered to 
sell me some 6mm-miniatures on second hand.
I will make the tracked vehicles that is missing to the 
MLRS in CAD and print them in 3D in the future. 
The setting of my 6mm-cold war-game will either be in 
the archipelago of Stockholm, the city-center of my home-
town Malmoe, the countryside in the county of smaland or
central Europe. I will make a full report of these scenery-
builds later on. I also must apologize that I haven´t been so 
active on my blog but I have a lot on my mind with my 
family, work, the virus.
Thankyou all for your support!

Engiseers/Techpriests-conversion

A new year with my blog and also a new year
with a new employment and as a father of three
small children. All together this affect my free-
time and my hobby. I feel that I have a lot on
my mind but not the time. This is probably very
common but this also affect my fellow readers of
my blog outthere. I start this first report of 2020 
with a big thankyou to all my readers and you mean
a lot to me!!!

My first report this year will be about how to
convert two spacemarines to engiseers/techpriests.
These engiseers will be able to repair armour and
other vehicles on the gaming table/battlefield and
has been wanted for a long time.
I think I managed to get a very industrial look on
these two figures but I will probably add two
scratchbuilt servoarms also before I will feel that
these are finished and ready for some paintjob.
I also read that these engiseers operate with two
other figures for extra support.
These extras are called servitors and one is fitted
with a light version of the engiseers-equipment and
the other with a heavy support weapon.
I will also convert and build two servitors and the
weapon of choice will be a heavy bolter for close
support.
The engiseers are all built with bits bought second
hand and the figures were both donated for free
to me from my friend Daniel. Thankyou again!!!

Happy New Year-retrospective 2019

Another year has passed and I have done a lot
but not so much hobby-projects as I wanted.
Eventhough my time is very limited I have
managed to make some time of my own and
I am real proud of this.
I now have completed my collection of 15mm-
figures to Flames of war and i now have german,
russian and japanese-forces to play with.
I have also made enough gamemarkers and
also templates to start play this fun but complex
game(I will start with version 3 of FoW).
Next up is that I have added som more muscle
to my Imperial guards (Warhammer 40 000).
I got tired of being hit very hard by my counter-
players before I even came near to hit back...
Now I have artillery, mortars, autocannons,laser-
cannons, zykers, plasmagunners, meltagunners
and finally more cover(APC).
I have also bought a huge collection of cold war-
figures and models in the 6mm-scale.
It has been a dream of mine for many years to build
up and play wargames in a swedish cold war-scenery.
This cold war-project will take quite some time but
I am really looking forward starting to do this!
I have also built some rocky-scenery,lakes and bought 
some very useful modular rivers.
I have not played Necromunda ash wastes this year but
I have bought a lot of nice bits and figures and this
will probably start up in 2020.
My "mancave" is now almost finished and up and 
running and my painting studio is also good to go.
Last but not least I will send out a big thankyou to all
my readers and fellow bloggers. Times are not so good
in Sweden right now with growing crime and a very
rocky economy ahead together with big problems in
the public sector.This is a big worry for all of us and to
have a hobby is very good thing these days.
Eventhough these facts I must think positive and I want
to send out a big Happy New year 2020 to you all!























More support for the IG

Being a father of three small children is fantastic
but time to other things is often very limited and
the year 2019 has been very hectic.
A new born and also applying for a new job and
get the chance among 65 others has left very little
room for my other hobbies.
Eventhough this fact I have managed to buy some
bits earlier and finally I have built some usable
figures to Warhammer 40 000.
First up is another mortar-team (I now have 2)
and next is some special characters.
The ammo-boxes are made of polystyrene and
with wood-work made of coffee-stirrers.
Some of the figures are made of tin and and I
bought these before the summer-vacation but
no loveto these until now.
The figure I am very pleased with will be my
superior commander to my Imperial guard and
I have named him Alexander Cornelius.
Next up will be to paint these and test them on
the gaming-table.
