Happy new year!
Well, maybe a day early, but I doubt I’ll update again before January.
To finish the year off, here’s a pic of the M26 Pershing my wife bought me for my birthday. I had time on Boxing day and the day after to get it complete – although only managed one lousy photo of it on the gaming table – which has a pretty poor energy saving bulb above it 😦
I’ll take a better photo in the light box when I get chance.

I’ve also put together the present I received for Christmas (thanks again to my fantastic wife), a Vampire Lord on a Zombie Dragon – this is the main boss for my Undead army.
I did rush to it though, and build it Boxing day and paint it the day after.
It’s still awaiting lighter highlights on the bone work, along with the stone it’s stood on and base painting. I’m waiting to put it on a decent sized piece of mdf, rather than the tabletop sized piece of plastic GW provided with it.
Vampire Lord on Zombie Dragon – work in progress:
Finally today we managed to get a game of Iron Cross in. That’s a really nice simple(ish) set of rules that flows very fast. If Bolt Action is to 40K, then Iron Cross is to Kings of War. Iron Cross does have a fantastic action/reaction system.
Here’s a few pics from the dull lit game table.
Apologies that a few infantry models are only base-coated.
The German Forces:
The US Forces:
End of Turn 1
End of Turn 2
End of Turn 3
End of Turn 4
End of Turn 5
At the end of turn 6, the US forces (me) failed their break point roll as they’d taken a load of casualties and fled the table.

And a couple of other photos I took:
PS: And if you noticed… yeah… Captain America was leading the US forces and Red Skull was leading the Germans. 🙂
