This Town ain`t Big Enough for the both of Us!

This Town ain`t Big Enough for the both of Us!

The Burns Gang of Dry Gulch, Texas, wanted the town. But so did those mangy Martinsens. One gang would have to leave. Which would it be? And how much collateral damage would occur? Those were two questions that knawed on me as I chewed my tobacco.

The Gunfight raged until sundown.
The Martinsens have a Burns all to themselves.
The Dry Gulch Hotel is a great place to drink, sleep and find a friend.
Clean beds!
There hasnt been a good hangin lately. I kind of miss it!
The Burns Gang on their way to meet the Martinsens. They want to show them who is boss.
The Martinsens leave the Dry Gulch Hotel, hung over but ready to go.
The Burns Gang is driven back and takes cover behind the hotel. Some think it unmanly to run and hide, but the gang is hoping to live to fight another day, with two men shot already.

Godzilla rages over Tokyo

Godzilla rages over Tokyo

“We want the people of Tokyo to know, we did our best under difficult circumstances.” -Tokyo Governor Koikei
Some of the carnage after Godzilla took out his wrath on Tokyo.

Godzilla entered our Olympic city and we were not sure of his intentions. Soon it became evident that he was pissed. Not being able to communicate with him, we decided to prevent as many deaths as possible by engaging with the enemy and calling on our American allies in Japan to help us do the same.

Godzilla entered our city near Roppongi then ventured into Ginza. Fortunately we warned many citizens to get off the streets. We decided to do our best to either eliminate Godzilla or drive him off. In the end we were able to drive him

back into Tokyo Bay. The following are unaltered drone footage of the Battle of Tokyo. (Viewer discretion is advised.)

Some of the drone footage is award winning.

Painting Advice

Painting advice from Bruce:

I told Bruce I had bought two contrast paints from GW – cost? A whopping 2120 Yen!!! Yikes!!!


I bought two tiny bottles of contrast paints. ¥2120!!! Expensive! I won’t do that again.


Yep. They are steep. Trade off less painting time for money. Which is more important? Other alternatives exist for paints that perform similarly. Antithesis paints have gotten good reviews. If you’re using Tamiya, try their effects paints. ‘Smoke’ is worth using. I still hate the way their paint behaves but a few options are good for me. YMMV. Buying six singles in one order, with fixed shipping, comes to about 650 yen per bottle. Still expensive for many people but significantly less than GW.

Thank you Bruce!

The Old West

I have been getting into the Wild West period. Not sure why exactly but I think I enjoy some of the movies that

depict this period. Maybe being couped up during Covid19 has an effect of wanting to be out in the great outdoors – out on the range. Even if it was a very violent and dangerous time. Anyway, for whatever reason, I have been making buildings- 4 Ground, and others:

WW2 Painting Guides

Warlord games painting guide for WW2 figures.

At the simplest level: US: green or khaki, Germans: grey (feldgrau), Soviets: brown tending toward rust. British: tan. That said, the different branches of each service and different periods of the war, in addition to different levels of field use makes the colors quite diverse. Wargamers often have strongly-worded discussions on uniform colors. Warlord Games has lots of resources on this.

You can also follow the unofficial but very good Memoir 44 painting guide, which may be more in line with what you are looking for, if you play Memoir 44.
