Orc's Drift the game!

Hi All,
I have put a Universal Battle Map, and match together. I want to share the code you any one who would like to load it up and play it out. I have built the map based on the real lay out of the mission. Please note there is a fee to use UB with custom content. I think I paid $14.00 for one year, and it is $29.00 for life time. When my one year runs out I am going for the life time one. If nothing more that to play solo games.

Code: From the link copy the code and paste into the map part of the software.

Also I have filled out the map with all the base units for a game.

For this match I have a starting army of Orcs at 150, and IG at 100. I would think after turn 2 roll a D6 for the orks, and add that many more 10 man units to the board. I do not see the IG winning but how long can they last. Another way would be from every 10 Orcs killed place a new unit on the board. This way the IG might have a chance. Also fill the hospital with walking wounded and fight from the windows (up to 10 men can fire from the hospital, and at reduced to hit). The hospital is the right most building part of the main group. The barn, and coral is to the far right of that. The mission is the long building closest to the Orc lines, with the store being to the far left.
Here is the file for the match.

I will most likely play this out as a solo game using the rules USE ME 001.
If you need help with UB or the files please let me know by email:

An Orcy weekend!

I have seen a few posts on the TMP about the old school MJ orks, and decided to get some more painted up. I painted up twenty of them, and used a new paint scheme for them. As I am now using dip I needed to come up with a faster and lighter paint scheme for them. So I have block painted them, and used lighter green for their skin.

First 2 photos my old way, then followed by the new way.

I know they look great but they will not work with the dip being this dark. So here are my new ones.

I know the photos are not the best but click on them to see the bigger view, and you will see the difference.

Army Progress for that last month.

I have been pushing my self to work on my Praetorian army, this is a task in its self. With all my family needs to take care of first I have very little time to play. This fall was a challenge with my kids in Soccer, and being a first time soccer coach for my son's team. Well with the bad Fall weather we ended the season late. Now with the holidays coming I do not see any more work till the new year.

So here is what I have done.

First is I have completed 1 full Platoon. This includes a Spec Ops team (the Scene Miniatures), the 5 squads of brits (old glory 15s), followed by a squad of snipers (15mm Uk). Photo sucks but here they are.

Next I have a MechA, Walker, and a mobile missile launcher. MechA (15mm uk), thn the walker (Gear Krieg), then the missile launcher (also Gear Krieg). I have also use some water transfers from my old GW stuff, adds a bit more to them.

This guy had a missile pod installed, I found a shoulder arm system from a 28mm that fit, and that was it.

I am thinking this will be my last post before Christmas so I will wish all of you a very Marry Christmas, Happy New Year, and if you do not celebrate Christmas, please take my best wishes for the holiday you do celebrate.
