Combat Storm: World War Z

Played a solo game of my World War Z mod for Combat Storm (work in progress)....This first battle involves the Zombies coming across the border of the Dragon Republic, which encounters a Green Army force on patrol outside of Peaceville. After 5 turns, the soldiers had been overrun but managed to get head shots on 33 of the 50 Zombies which came in waves of 10 each turn. I posted some Zombie rules for this mod on the Combat Storm Yahoo Group and I got the figs from an eBay listing
They have Green, Blue, White and Clear Zombies in thier eBay store, and for 1.00 a pack of Army Men scale Zombies it's hard to beat!

The Start of Combat Storm:World War Z

I got these cool plastic figures from 2hockeyfans on ebay, they are about 2 inches tall and will fit in great with my plastic army men for a new campaign...Combat Storm World War Z! When I got them I based them on matte board squares I had cut up, then I added a little sand and some blood spots and bam! New Army! BRAINS!!!!

Big Additions to my Clone Wars armies!

Got around to finishing a bunch more troops for my Clone Wars games, some I used at Rock-Con but most are fresh...
First, here's a squad of 10 Clone Troopers, most converted into new poses, and three Heavy Clone Troopers.

Next we have a squad of 10 Clone Scout Troopers. I used a couple Kashyyyk Clones and the rest were Original Trilogy Scout Troopers all painted up in cammo.

Here are 27 Clone Snow Troopers, with thier Arc Trooper leaders. I repainted a bunch of ESB Snow Troopers to look more like Clones, and used conversions to represent the Arc Troopers.

Three B.A.R.C. Speeders. I can't remeber where they came from, maybe an Action Fleet set. The riders used to be all brown colored but I replaced the heads and painted them up Clone white, then mounted them on bases.

Two I.S.P. Speeders from the WOTC line, I repainted the drivers and added more color and detail to the Speeders.

I knew I'd find use for this Void Tiger APC that would make me happy...I turned it into what I call an AT-TT (All Terrain Troop Transport). The gun on its back is from an AOTC Hasbro action figure.

Two Clone AT-ST's. The walkers are the old MPC model kits, then I added some plastics to them so they don't look exactly like Empire era Scout Walkers.

Now for some heavy firepower...two A5 Juggernauts a.k.a. Turbo Tanks that will carry troops into battle quickly! I got these a few years ago, I think they were one of the last toys made for the Action Fleet line. They open up to reveal a Kashyyyk playset, but I superglued all that jive shut. For painting I just used a Magic Wash mix and that's all they really needed to go from shiny toy to "used" military equipment. I lost the turret for one over the years, luckily I seem to have an eternal supply of those AOTC tripod guns. I didnt glue the front so it opens to simulate a platform for the troops to run down!

I didn't want the CIS to feel left out, so I converted some of these Techno Union Warriors and repainted them. I might use them as an elite squad or leaders for masses of Battle Droids.

One of the WOTC lines had these Bulk Loading Droids and they looked like they would fit in with the CIS...I repositioned some of the arms and I'll probably use them as upgraded Super Battle Droids.

Finally, I sliced up a couple of warped Homing Spider Droids and added the body to these resin Kryomek Grav Tanks, them glued a few of those Buck Rogers board game turrets to the side for added firepower...Bam! CIS Homing Tanks!

I've done three battles on Yavin 4 and one on Kashyyyk, so the next few battles will be on Rhen Var...I liked that part in the Clone Wars X Box game and the levels on Battlefront so once the terrain is ready the next few battles shall commence!!

This is cool as all-get-out!

We got the new Clone Wars Turbo Tank in last night, it looks way cool...I snapped a couple pics. It's got a price tag of I think I'm sticking with my two Action Fleet sized ones as A5 Juggernauts. Still wished I got one of those hundred dollar AT-TE's from a year or two ago....

Lego Clone Walkers

I've never gotten into the Lego Star Wars stuff, mostly because I'd have to get another job or two to afford it, but I picked up a couple Clone Walkers for me and the kids to assemble, and we got through it with no fuss or thrown pieces! I thought these were pretty neat. Wonder how they would look with 28mm Clones....

Cool New Stuff in Dept. 07

Got some new stuff in last night I had to share...the Star Wars Dewback is waaaayyy cool, makes my green piece o' plastic from back in the day look like...well, something from back in the day! Also got the second wave of Marvel Secret Wars 25th anniversary packs, issues 4, 7 and 8 (dont know why they skipped 5/6...) I think the Spider Girl fig is pretty hot! (And these kids think Spidey came up with the black costume design himself....)

Pics from my Rock-Con 09 Games

Here are some pics from my Rock-Con games, first up is a game of Combat Storm played by eight people...lots of stuff blew up and troops mowed down...good times!!

Next up are some pics from my Clone Wars Combat Storm mod...The Battle of Kashyyyk!! I have to count this one as a draw, all the battledroids had gotten wiped out, but the CIS had managed to take out all the Clone vehicles with some clever manuvering of the Homing Spider Droids!

Some pics from Rock Con 09

Here are some pics I took at Rock-Con, including a 40K table, Mordheim table, some Historical crap with factories, an OGRE battle, and these cool battlesuits for a Stargrunt type battle which looked very cool!

New Tree House from Acheson Creations

My friend Craig at Acheson Creations sent me a couple of the new Tree Houses to use at Rock Con for my Clone Wars Kashyyyk battle, you have to check this piece of awesomeness out!!

Here is the house in all its resin glory...

Here it is all painted up!

Quick Battlefield Evo Comparison Shots

For someone on the TMP...quick shots of BF:Evo figs next to some figs that may or not be compatible...I think some would match up better if the BF:Evo figs had bigger heads...

Evo trooper, Mega Minis civilian, Evo trooper, Tactical Minis Swat trooper (Armorcast has them now), Evo trooper, Mega Minis Swat trooper.

Below: Evo trooper, Assault Group US soldier, Evo trooper, Em-4 bio soldier, Evo trooper, Mega Minis Modern US soldier.

I thought the Mega Minis Swat would fit in, but the heads are kinda large. I think if you swapped the Evo guys' heads with larger ones they would fit in better...
