The Day of the Doctor

Really quite looking forward to this.

Fate of a Nation

Fate of a Nation

Really pleased to see that Battlefront are looking at moving into a new era, with the Arab-Israeli conflict for Flames of War.

I always liked the tank models for the Vietnam era, but as I said back in 2011 when Battlefront returned to Vietnam, that:

Quite like the models. Not so sure I will be buying into the era though. Apart from NVA and Vietcong infantry, the US seem to have all the firepower and armour (as they did in Vietnam).

For me the gaming would have not been tank versus tank, more tank versus hidden infantry. With Fate of a Nation, there will be tank versus tank battles, complete with APCs, helicopters and planes.

Will be interesting to see how they support the free supplement, which models they will produce for the era.

Space Marine Hunter

Having posted the Space Marine Stalker model yesterday, here is an image of the Space Marine Hunter AA vehicle.

Space Marine Hunter

The Hunter model comes with a single barrel, whereas the Stalker has three. It is an anti aircraft tank for the Space Marines.

Having now seen both models, I much prefer the Hunter over the Stalker.

Presented here as a news item.

Space Marine Stalker

This is a photograph of the forthcoming new Space Marine Stalker model, well it is alleged that it is and the rumourmill seems to confirm it. The Hunter model comes with a single barrel, whereas the Stalker has three. It is an anti aircraft tank for the Space Marines.

Presented here as a news item.

Update: this is the Stalker model.

Update 2: changed image to an improved  one

So the next Doctor is…

Peter Capaldi is Doctor Who

Well the secret is a secret no more, the twelfth Doctor will be played by 55 year old Peter Capaldi, who is quite well known as an actor.

He replaces Matt Smith, who at 26 was one of the youngest actors to play Doctor Who, and Peter is the same age that William Hartnell was when he started to play the role of the Doctor. Peter will replace Matt in the Christmas special, and there is no news if Jenna Coleman will continue as the Doctor’s companion.

It will be interesting to see how an older actor will interpret the role.
