Superglue Advanced Formula!

Got my magic fix after work today and I present to you my assembled Guards Armoured Squadron. 2 HQ Shermans with an ARV, 2 Shermans and a Sherman Firefly. Huzzah!

What a sight!
Can you spot the HQ tank!

So fast, so easy and now I'm bored again cause they took less than an hour to get assembled. Mind you that's from box to what you see below.

On the 40K front, I've been selling off my IG army bit by bit to fund a FW army. Still undecided and hopefully by tomorrow I'll have more updates on that.

Till the next update. Keep on hobbying and roll some dice!

Update on Guards Armoured Squadron

Just a short update today. Basically cleaned, de-flashed, washed and partially assembled my Sherman tanks till the brush on my superglue dried up. Kinda frustrating when you're in the mood to hobby and something goes wrong. So tomorrow after work, to Bunnings I shall be going to stock up on superglue!

How I wish I was back in Malaysia where 7-11 was just around the corner and super glue is cheap as chips! But nonetheless today's progress was very encouraging and hopefully I can get the squad done by Thursday.

Maelstrom Games is currently re-stocking on FoW minis and I only hope that my order get's to me soon and by the looks of it, I might just have to take my time with this batch of tanks till reinforcements arrive in the mail.

It's funny how things end up. I used to game at the FoW manufacturing facility.
Moved to Adelaide and started FoW, buying the minis from a UK supplier when the game originates from NZ and is manufactured in Malaysia where I used to game. I never thought that I would ever start a FoW army.

Till the next posting. Cheerios!

Beginning of my Guards Armoured Squadron.

Well peeps it's been a long time since I updated my blog and what better way to revive it with a post on a new beginning. Seeing how the boys at Legio Malaysia are all having so much fun with Legio's Flames of War, Operation Market Garden campaign. I decided to jump in and start a FoW army.

It was daunting at first as I didn't have a clue on how to go about it, I got myself Earth & Steel as recommended by Khairul and Jeff then onto Hell's Highway. I must admit that I'm not a big war fan, but the miniatures and hobbying aspect of it was perfect for me. I love tanks, infantry and I needed an army that I could spend a couple of hours of my week with. Nothing too time consuming like cleaning mould lines and such. Just plain old out of the box cleaning and washing. Plus they take up so little space as compared to the dreaded Air Cavalry Imperial Guard army that I started over 2 years ago.

Ordered a bunch of stuff off Maelstrom and I'm patiently waiting for them to get here. As for now thanks to Military Hobbies, I've gotten my grubby hands on a Sherman Armoured Platoon, Sherman ARV and a GERMAN HQ objective (Only because it looked so much better as compared to the other HQ Objectives)

So hopefully in the days to come I'll have this blog up and going again. Would be nice to have updates on the IG Air Cavalry too but that's wishful thinking. Till the next update. Huzzah!
