Monster Fight Club Terrain Review

Two weeks ago, the Sentry Box received its first delivery of the new Monster Fight Club Scenery and whenever we bring in a new product line like this we like to open it up and add it to our terrain collection as we feel that it’s only fair, if we want you to pay money for it, we show you that we believe in it and spend our money on it too.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we can’t currently let you enjoy playing on the scenery, so we sent Kris home with some to try out and give us a review!

Part 6 of 6 – Buildings & Fortifications

At last, I’m in the home stretch.  With all the figures painted along with the half-track, I have the buildings from the starter set to finish off and some fortifications for scenery.

I started with the farm buildings and the assembly was straightforward.  These buildings are a little finicky to put together.  Not difficult, but the fit won’t be perfect.  I didn’t sweat it for these, and once the paint is on most folks won’t notice little gaps etc.

In Part 1 of our look at GW’s Contrast Paint range, we gave our first impressions of the paints, and I said that I wanted to take a look at how they interacted with some other miniatures and show some fun ways of using them.

Hopefully, we start that in Part 2!

Great Paints You Might Not Have Tried: Citadel Edition

A little while back, we took a look at some of the paint ranges we carry here in the store and highlighted some great colors from other manufacturers you might want to try if you’re used to only using Games Workshop’s Citadel range. It was especially relevant at the time since we had been unable to restock our Citadel racks due to the shutdown – but since that particular problem has been gone for a bit, we thought you might also like to hear our resident paint expert Chris’s thoughts on our Citadel paints in the same way we’ve already seen for other brands we have.

Post 5 – Painting the German Sd Kfz 251

I’ve been looking forward to this project.  I’ve loved building military models since I was a kid in all scales up to 1/35.  In a larger scale game like Bolt Action, you have the opportunity to really pour some time and energy into your armoured vehicles because there’s just so much ‘real estate’ to work with.   German tanks especially give so many choices for the modeler around a variety of configurations and camo patterns.

Part 4 – Painting the Germans

I have to say, I always enjoy painting WWII German figures.  They’re typically so different from any other nation.  Most armies are pretty uniform, general issue G.I…  in short, kind of dull to paint.  While it’s satisfying to have a finished army, at times painting the same uniform, same webbing, same equipment over and over gets pretty tedious.
