ArmiesArmy - NEWS



Hello

As some people have noticed I've taken down my 'infantry' figures from my website today. The reason I have done is because they have been moved to a new home. I exchanged this morning and will in the very near future (post Salute) be available from their website.
Why have I done this? Well...to be frank the hobby business has grown past the stage I can efficiently  run it. I have only an X amount of time I can spend on the business and I was spending over it. I was no longer gaming, painting and generally I thought my shipping standards were falling with the odd error. All of them quickly fixed, however this took further time. All the usual reasons many companies have :)

So rather then stop creating stuff I decided to split the figures range away from my vehicles. I also have found a fantastic place for them to go to. Ill let them announce it, however its safe to say they are one of the best UK miniature companies out there, with a fine 15mm SciFi selection . My figures really do fit well in their lines and they have great plans. The range names will change, however not the quality and investment. I suspect it become a more rounder range with the new owners and will be a big success!

As I said I will keep the vehicles and will continue to develop them. In fact, Ill be moving this further with the investment I now have!  I've already new models being created and Ill also have some more news in the near future regarding new website and lines. They will all be vehicle focussed :)

No current orders will be effected

Id like to thank you for all your support and I hope it will continue. I truly want to push the standards for 15mm SciFi vehicles!

thanks

Keith

ArmiesArmy Acquires Black Hats 15mm SciFi range!



I'm very pleased to announce that after several months of tense negotiations between representatives of ArmiesArmy and BlackHat Miniatures a deal has been struck for the acquisition of Blackhats 15mm sci range. Given the Global scale and likely investigation by  the UK  mergers and acquisitions department it might be several minutes before official word is given.

As it happens the molds are in the back of my car after Mike asked if I wanted them!  Ill give them a quick sort out tomorrow morning. The lovely little models are just what armiesarmy need for some indigenous species and fit nicely with my Yeti and Raptor like creatures I've been stumbling about with for a while!


Here is a few pics of the new ranges :)

Ill be looking at creating some masters for conversions and give the locals a much needed upgrade in modern simple weaponry. The RUSK AK347 a prime example of point and shoot in any condition!












 Welcome as always for comments on things youd like to see with them :)
I will have some riders for the mounted variety :)

No Stars in Sight AAR - Game 1


Just a quick AAR of my first campaign game.


Russian Empire Forces and Rusk forces have been flexing their muscles over the past few months with the odd exchange of space border violations.


Setting
Planet  Alexeyevsk / Svobodny (depending on which side) of the Gukovsky System.  

The Gukovsky system is a buffer zone between both forces containing 3 habitual planets.  Alexeyesvk has several privately funded colonies with a growing economy based its farming exports. The colonies fund a communal militia, mostly using RUSK exported arms.  Stories persist of RUSK 'observers' helping with training. A wet tropical planet by Earth's standards, however large mineral and Helium 3 deposits have made recently discovered. 

Across the colonies unconfirmed incursions by both sides and a common breakdown of the communal agreements have led to requests for support to either nation. 


Colony IV ' Odessa' has reported Militia Incursions at the Helium 3 plant

Expeditionary forces have been sent to investigate and 'assist'


Charlie Squad ,20th Galich Infantry Regiment, 5th Infantry Division

2 x Kurnganet APC's
 -14.7mm HMG
  - Infantry Troop - 3 Rifleman, 1 Grenadier, 1 LMG, 1 RPG

1 BDM 525
 - 1 LMG
3  Squad Leaders with rifles

Peoples Odessa Volunteer Army
Militia Force
5 x 5 men mixed forces. RPG's and LMG's supported
Local Commander

The table was set-up with large amounts of cover several arable rice fields and the storage facility. 


The whites deployed to the west of town in two locations. The Militia forces remained hidden in the workforce buildings and plant.




The next turns provided uninterrupted movement of the white forces infantry teams as the APC's remained on overwatch. 



Team B carefully negotiated some hilly and forested grown successfully, despite a militia force opening up. 

Team A were less lucky and the first professional soldier fell as the squad moved through the rice fields.



On the opening rounds of fire, it was now time for the Russian Leaders to inspire their man,which they duly did. 



TeamA and B both opened fire  and caused casulaties and more importantly pinned both targets. Supported by suppression fire from the APC's the two teams advanced into some building cover, forcing the pinned troops to withdraw. 




The fighting had quickly turned with the Whites supported infantry attacks, however one surprise was about to jump out in the form of a local commander. On his activation he managed order a RPG gunner to jump out and take a shot at the APC....resulting in big Kabooooommmmmm. 

This however was not followed up as two Milita squads failed to get into position and the continued fall-back of the others. 




With a lack of cover and troops the Militia forces decided that to fight another day was a wise move and slowly removed them selves from the board. 

The White forces took two causalities, one from each team and lost an APC, however took all objectives. The Militia took 4 casualties and had a number taken prisoner. An outstanding success for the white forces and they now have a base of operations for the region.

Overall a very interesting and fun game. Despite not being 100% familiar with the rules the game took around and hour and a half. This included numerous trips to top up my drink and a conversation with the Rules developer to clarify them part through. Now, this isnt part of the normal service from Ivan :) however pretty dammed impressive to get a reply that quickly!

The information also proved I had got the workings wrong, despite very clear rules! Id simply needed verification as to the turn sequence in that in each 'turn' you could pick 'ANY' leader to activate again.

Overall Id say they are a really great set of rules and I'm now quite confident to try add more elements.  I really liked the fact you needed to think strategically as opposed to line them up and fire approach.  Poor tactics = very quick battle as your dead!

 Ill be using them for a while for sure !


Hope you find this interesting and Ill have more AAR's soon :)
