Introduction to the Cold War
The Soviets and the United States engaged in a hostile confrontation on political, economic and diplomatic levels for most of the last century post World War 2. Though they managed to avert the outbreak of a third world war, that would most likely have turned nuclear with catastrophic consequences for the world.

Some of the miniatures I managed to get painted before relocating north over a month ago. For the months of April and May I was unable to paint due to all my hobby stuff being packed up for moving. Since moving I now have a dedicated man cave, so I aim to get more miniatures painted going forward.
Well another Zombie themed table top game has hit the market. Though this one is based on the Walking Dead comics IP, which in turn is the IP used for the popular TV show of the same name. Which means most people will recognise most of the characters and features of the game from either the comic books or TV show which is currently in its 7th series. As the game is based on the comic book IP, the characters resemble the comic versions rather than the TV actors.

On the 18th June 1815, two armies faced each other on a muddy field in Belgium. It would be a decisive battle that bring about an end to twenty years of conflict and reshape the future of Europe. Both armies were commanded by formidable military minds, who had a plethora of battlefield victories behind each of them.

If like me you not only play table top war-games but board games as well. You probably have one or two miniature board games in your collection. Well, I have several, and I’m one of those gamers who prefers his miniatures to be painted. So for the next twelve months I plan to paint all of the miniatures in each and every one of my board games.
