Diplomacy on the Sea?

The Australian HMAS Sydney is alongside a Soviet Russian Sovremmeniy Destroyer. Obviously to close for combat, yet is it too close for comfort?

Really like this pic, and it is a pic of one of my good works, the HMAS Sydney. The so-so done Sovremmeniy was my first ship that isn't a US Ship, started a n ew paint code.. but did not achieve the refined finished product to it but i noe i can do better now. :D

Diplomacy on International Waters.

With the rising tension betwen the Total Alliance Countries and the Horizon Power. The World and its various defense force in their own specific countries, remain on a high security alert in protecting their own self-interest. Perhaps a truce or an agreement has been made betweent he Australian HMAS Sydney and the Soviet which is forged out from the deduction of this picture.

Anyway, time approaches and the battlestations must be manned. Production shall start soon, and so will the end of a scenario conflict between DSHCC forces and PTT as the Senior HQ command of DSHCC forces are planning their final last offensive to end this misery .

Till then.. there are a lot more great features comin.. and my next photoshoot of my military collectin will have more figures, more models and a lot more diorama.. and better improvements for SURE

Stay Tuned :D

Wow another Website for Tabletop Gaming

Hey Hey, Im back even though I dun need to be. Well yet again, i have stumbled upon another tabletop gaming company that has been in the business since1967. Took me this long to find it. And they do Modern Military Warfare for both Land Air and Sea.

The Company is GHQ and it provides the best damn wargaming products ever. For land and air, the standard scale is 1/285, and on top of vehicles, they also have 1/285 scale men, though very small, i cant beleive they actually provide them so. Most of the Modern Warfare Vehicles, from MBTs to Armoured Personnal Carriers are being manufactured by them and they include many land forces elements that are from countries other than the US and Russia. This includes French Forces, Chinese, Israeli and many more.

Furthermore, with the small scale, u can field up to a mechanised company of vehicles or tank company and a battalion of troops easily in the tabletop game. On top of tht, there is room to play it all on a single large table and the cost of the products are not as crazy as warhammer. In fact rather cheap. For a Tank company with support vehicle, it will only cost 40 bucks or less.

Normally, most wargamming manufacturing companies would do only aircraft and land forces but GHQ goes the extra mile to do naval wargaming.. and furthurmore.. NAVAL Wargaming but at a smaller scale of 1/2400 which is super small.. but the detail is really crazy for its size. On top of tht. it is modern naval warfare and similarly there are quite a variety of ships offered in their company. Enough to make a proper fleet.

Here are some of the pics for the Land and Air 1/285 scale vehicles, aircrafts and 1/2400 Naval Warships and Submarines,

GHQ M1A2 Abrams

GHQ Infantry Men

GHQ SSN Los Angeles (The Naval Game even has Submarines)

GHQ UH60 Blackhawk

GHQ Infantry with Special Weapons
Note: All are according to scale

They even have the Ticonderoga VLS Cruiser. And look at the detail. Gorgeous!

GHQ AH64D LongBow


GHQ really open my eyes to the fact tht Modern Military Warfare Tabletop games exist.. HAhah but dont worry.. im already fixed on my 1/700 Naval Models and My Battlefield Evolution collection and 1/72 Land forces Collection and 1/144 Aircraft collection. I already have too many to handle and my hands are full. Not too mention short on $$$$

Perhaps Somewhere in the distant future, i might take up a Tank Company, a Battalion of Men with Air Support and Maybe a fleet of Ships.. But that will be far from now. As for now i will stick to what i have acquired.

So take a look at the sight and see all the genres of Military Tabletop gaming products at I noe u will enjoy it (Josh).. and tris.. I hate u.

Anyway, on another sidenote, my reinforcements (2 Sections of Forces of Valour US Soldiers) have arrived and has been received by Joshua (Thanks Dude for the help). And more will come soon. :P

Till the next feature.. Toodle loo!

Modern Military Warfare. I Love it!

Well I will be taking a leave from the Internet and my Computer as long as possible to do my work and revise for my exams. But one thing is for certain. I like the Shit(Hobby) tht i do, especially my military collection.

Will be starting up on my project again. Doing a major restructuring, maintainng and cleaning of my miliary collection.

As for now, yet another pic

On the road to victory? The DSHCC Forces have been in a long term conflict with the PTT Forces trying to liberate the state from PTT control in North African region. Is time runnig out for them?

On other note, Josh, my fren is interested in taking up Battlefield Evolution and trying it out wif me. If that the case.. Im gonna assemle a PLA Army to gear up. Was interested in Chinese Weaponary anyway. :D

Amphibious Assault

One of the main armstrong armour of Marine Forces. The AAV-7A1 is the amphibous assault vehicle that also doubles off as a armoured personal carrier. It has an operating range of 480Km, a speed of 64 km/h on land and 13.5 km/h on water. Its main armanant is the Mk. 19 40mm Grenade Launcher and the secondary armanent is M2HB 12.7mm Machine gun. It has a crew of 3 and carries 25 troops which is more than the M113 can carry. But it is not known for its armour and is more weaker compared to the M113. There were a substantial lot of them damanaged or destroyed in the Iraq war but the "sardine can" is still the main forefront of armoured personal carriers for marine forces

A DSHCC AAV-7A1 in the desert sand.

Trying my best to save up to attend to most of my planned expenditure. U will soon find out my next transaction. It may be from Battlefield Evolution or Forces of Valour.. WHO KNOW!!??

Till then.. See ya (BUSY BUSY BUSY)

The Battlescene

Another week gone so fast,

Here is the feature today

A Dashland Armed Forces (DSHCC) M113 with a Humvee enroute to a city as they leave behind a burning hulk of an enemy tank.

It is at certain times u get the right angle and the right sky and tht where it makes certain perspective of the picture look real nice. I really like this one quite a lot and the silouette definition is relative to its distance from the camera. The road has a rough texture to it but it reflective nature dampens the picture a little bit.

I tried to make the smoke as real as possible but failed in doing a good one. In any case, the pic looks rather nice and hopefully i shall get some good reviews about it, rather than nonsensical tags.. lol

OMG.. FInally a Proper Mordern Tabletop game

Hey Hey there,

Im back with some interesting discovery on my part for modern military stuff. Today, I went down wif my frens, WT and Veron to Paradigm Infinitum and we were browsing around the shop, and i happen to find a tabletop game called Battlefield Evolution. And somehow or another, it seems relatively similar to Battlefield 2 computer game, just tht it uses figures and vehicles that are already painted to play on a tabletop.

They even have 4 factions at the moments. USMC, PLA, ETF and MEA.. (sounds very similar to Battlefield 2 forces including the Euro Force). Although apart from certain new interesting vehicles and the fact that MEA is more of a Terrorist Organisation with mediocre Civilian Firepower, which is rather different than the MEC force that is more of a professional army in BF2, the game seems to depict the computer game rather similarly.

I have not seen any of the rules or the gameplay, but it looks intresting enough to try it out. At the same time, the figures are not that bad and with certain tweaking, can be made to look as good as collectible painted quality.

This game is produced by Mongoose Publishing which brought to the public, the "Starship trooper" tabletop game and is now focusing on this new tabletop game development.

Not as well established as Games Workshop, Mongoose Publishing does not have the stability compared to the Warhamme rfranchise but at the same time, it has a great potential, especially this s the first Modern Military Tabletop game wif Ready-painted plastic Vehicles and Figures that are of relatively good quality. At the same time, it has an official gaming rulebook and looks to be developing furthur. Hopefully th eproject doesnt shutdown.. But with regards to collectibles, it is a good time to acquire some of its figures to add to the collection. Modifying and painting it will only make it look better, s there is no lost in taking an interest and checking it out.

On a detail note of the products, the vehicles and figures are on a scale of 1/65, so for most modellers who do 1/72 scale armor and figures, it will be slightly bigger depending on which model brand u support. Currently, i dun see much of a big difference between the M1A2 Abram scaled to 1/65 and 1/72, though it can be seen that one is but only slightly smalle rthan the other.

In any case, you be the judge and check out the game and tell me about what do u tink. Josh, u might also take some interest in it too.. Perhaps :p

The website is here:

I doubt it will be exactly this detailed for the real product as these products are all ready-made, and detailed painting can only be truly done by the hands of a MASTER.. lmao
