I recently won a blog giveaway from Jon at the Palouse Wargaming Journal. Jon is one of those very generous gamers that you always hear about. He has personally broadened my hobby horizons, beyond the first class content of his blog.
The prize I selected was Henry Hyde's The Wargaming Compendium; a book I've heard a lot about, but never seen.

Rebel Minis, a company that I talk about quite a bit, has a new release this week that looks perfect for 15mm mechs. The Earth Force Widowmaker. These are being released as 28mm battle suits, but look to be well sized as light/medium mechs for 15mm.

Off to the airport for a visit to England and Wales. At least for the next week and a half I'll have an excuse for not posting much. If I get to a computer then I'll put up some pictures of whatever we're visiting, though castles in Wales are a given.

It is Memorial Day in the United States. It's a three day weekend and Americans traditionally go camping and have BBQs on this day. It's also the day we honor those who have fought and died for us. As always today I'll be presenting you with my friend John Maloney.

I recently received a box from Japan. I have ordered a couple of models from over there before but this was something very different. Aaron from Here's not great matter saw my interest in some of the Japanese models for 15mm Sci/Fi and picked up a bunch of stuff from his local model store.

This entry is both my entry for the Anti-Hero round and my Curtgeld. I did quite a bit of research on this one. First off was just making sure I had a good definition for anti-hero. Once I had that it was a matter of researching the available models to find one that was appropriate for this theme. While I had great fun perusing the catalogs of my favorite manufacturers I didn't find anything until I got to Eureka USA's site. As soon as I saw this set I knew it was my entry.

This entry is twenty four Celtic infantry as a four element warband for Hail Caesar. These 28mm figures are a mix of Black Tree, Warlord and Wargames Factory.

This week's entry is three 28mm Celt chariots from Wargames Factory. This is the contents of a single box, so good value for money, but craptastic sculpts.

As a change of pace, this next entry is 12 28mm Men-at-Arms from Fireforge Games. I've painted these up for Lion Rampant, but with another eight models they'll work for Bretonnians for Warhammer as well.
