Industrial Office Tower

Posted on May 22nd, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Having designed the Industrial Processing Tower based around a Pringles tube, I thought I would design a Pringle-less tower, something that does not require munching through a pack of snacks (although having a couple of teenage girls around always helps in that respect. This construction, the Industrial Office Tower, uses level at the same heights … Continue reading Industrial Office Tower

What? How?

Every angle of Jakub Kornfeil’s barely believable Hollywood moment in Moto3… Just… HOW?! 😱 pic.twitter.com/j5zN7eF1DL — MotoGP on BT Sport (@btsportmotogp) May 20, 2018 This had me leaping off the sofa… Advertisements

Dead Good Deadpool 2

Posted on May 18th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Laugh out loud super violent dead good Deadpool. I never like to give anything from a movie away, so no specific comments but I really enjoyed it. It is a very different Marvel movie from the Cinematic Unviverse story line. Stick around for the nuggets at the end. Advertisements

Finally Off The Table

Posted on May 16th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

So after the block painting comes the ink. I may yet go back and fill in the skull eye sockets with black paint, but basically it is finished. This is a great sculpt, maybe a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I really like the quality of Wargame Exclusive models. I must order some … Continue reading Finally Off The Table

Whats Still On The Table?

Posted on May 15th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

By the time I had finished slapping paint onto the resin Inquisitors car, it was a lot less black and grey than I thought it was going to be. Needs inking. Advertisements

Whats On The Table?

Posted on May 12th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

This resin Inquisitor Car from Wargame Exclusive is a great looking model, another I have been delaying in painting. Being of a Batmobile type design, I thought I would paint it black, but black is such a hard colour to do. So I decided on dark Panzer Grey instead…which is nearly black… Advertisements

40K Battle

Posted on May 11th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

A few weeks ago, we had a game of 40K, my Grey Knights against Mr Steinbergs close combat Chaos Nurgle horde. We played one of the missions, with the Grey Knights defending a settlement. This was not an ideal mission for a small elite force as they could not maneuver much and use their strengths, … Continue reading 40K Battle

Undercoating Nerves

Posted on May 9th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

We have had some fantastic weather here in the UK over the May Bank Holiday, this provided the long awaited opportunity to undercoat the rather large GR-75 transport ship conversion. I have had a grainy undercoating experience in the past when it may have been too damp or cold spray paint. There were no excuses … Continue reading Undercoating Nerves

Final Touches

Posted on May 8th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

After a long cold and damp winter, a window of opportunity to undercoat the beast was approaching. I still had a couple of last gasp decisions to make, I had been undecided on which sort of vertical thrust engine nozzles to use. In the end I went for the large type. I also added a … Continue reading Final Touches

MotoGP Jerez

This season just keeps getting more insane. This is only round four and three of the top riders eliminate themselves in a racing incident. Advertisements

Navy Skyship In The Shed

Mr Steinberg has completed his Navy Skyship for Steam Wars, just brilliant! The model is from Blotz and is one of a range of steampunk flying ships. Advertisements

Fantasy Style House

So I have not given up, I am pressing ahead making the stuff I want to use on a table. My next prototype is a fantasy style beamed house. I tried a few different ideas out with this one, some random brickwork on the ground floor, random tiles on the roof, and an unusual roof … Continue reading Fantasy Style House

Saw it this evening, loved it. Nuff said, true believer. Advertisements

Time To Give Up

Posted on April 27th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

As I have been posting recently, I have been doing a bit of MDF laser cutting and making some terrain models that I would want to use in a game. But having seen this on FB I really am beginning to wonder about what I can hope to achieve. The models by uGears are mindblowing, … Continue reading Time To Give Up

Steam Wars Martians

Posted on April 25th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Mr Steinberg and I had an excellent game of Steam Wars recently, it was the first outing for his Martians. It seemed appropriate that I field a force of British Empire infantry to repel the incursion. The majority of the British infantry used in this mission were basic troopers with a few heavy infantry thrown … Continue reading Steam Wars Martians

Confrontation Kickstarter

Posted on April 18th, 2018 under , . Posted by

Confrontation is one of my all time favourite games, simple as that, I love it. A small skirmish game with a huge range of amazing figures and plenty of factions to choose from. After a couple of years of speculation, the Confrontation Kickstarter has arrived. I was looking forward to picking up a new faction … Continue reading Confrontation Kickstarter

Finished Ruins

Posted on April 17th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Using the drawing of the first house I created, I turned it into some ruins. These actually take quite a long time to amend, it may even be quicker to start from scratch, depending on how much of the original building is being retained. These look good, I have created four sections in total and … Continue reading Finished Ruins

Salute 2018

Yesterday was Salute at the Excel in London, the biggest UK wargames show of the year. Once again we headed down, this year there really was not much I was intending to buy. But then again I always say that… As it is the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War, there were … Continue reading Salute 2018

MotoGP Argentina

Posted on April 13th, 2018 under . Posted by

It has been nearly a week since the MotoGP race in Argentina which one could say was quite eventful. I think I can say I have never seen a race like it. It is not over yet, the Rossi/Marquez feud is back to boiling point. The rest of the year will be…interesting. Advertisements

Industrial Tower MK2

Posted on April 6th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

The first version of my Industrial Tower was okay to look at, but was very difficult to put together. The MK2 is much easier to build and has way fewer pieces. It still needs some tweaking, in particular, the tread plate pattern looks great but takes ages to cut. I have made several alternative tread … Continue reading Industrial Tower MK2

MDF Frenzy

To say that I have been busy creating lots of MDF designs would be an understatement. Lots to put together and so little time. Advertisements

I have added double doors to the ground floor of my multi-level building, looking pretty good! Advertisements

Cutting Action

As I don’t have my own machine and I don’t cut stuff very often, it is still quite fun to see one in action. This video shows some prototype ruins I have been working on. Advertisements

MK2 Stairs

Posted on March 28th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

The second version of the stairs is much better, they do not stick out as far and allows for a few models to be positioned at the entrance. I was not sure about the edging to the stair supporting wall. There were quite a few small pieces needed to trim the edge by the steps, … Continue reading MK2 Stairs
