…this is the first of a range of new ‘Earthdoom’ 15mm figures to come from Khurasan Miniatures – I have twelve more to paint. Khurasan usually like to have the minis painted and photographed before they are released for sale but it is possible they m…

…when I received my 28mm miniatures order from Nuclear Shrimp Games I found that Yannis, much to my ‘delight’ had included a couple of 15mm miniatures (I DON’T PAINT 15MM MINIS!!…but these are so nice…NO!!)  they are producing for the curren…

…I just love these troopers! If this is an example of the figures I will receive from the now, well-funded Kickstarter I’m going to be both very impressed and very, very pleased!

…you might remember me ordering a few miniatures from Black Earth after pledging on their Kickstarter – well they arrived safely this morning and I have to say I’m delighted and, I have to admit, a little surprised. The photos on the website don’t re…

…I might use one of Antenocitis ‘Komodo’ suits (sadly out of production but I do have three) instead of the McVey T.H.I Utility Carapace. Problem is it doesn’t look like it could fit in the cargo hold of the ‘Roc’ without folding or sitting in some w…

Posted on February 8th, 2018 under Posted by

…an online friend christened me that a few months ago because I build and paint so many dropships. I admit it – I do have a penchant for dropships (must stem from the first viewing of ‘Aliens’) and have painted quite a few both in 15mm and 28mm. My f…

…I thought the cockpit was looking a little too monochromatic so I added a bit of colour with decals. I’ve also completed two more ‘passengers’.

…Lovely looking models on this KS – yes I’ve pledged! Intrigued and interested and impatient I thought i’d order a few 28mm figures already available on their website but had a few difficulties at checkout. Soon sorted by the very helpful gentleman i…

…cargo bay painted and the build continues by attaching the wings and the tail booms (adding these gives you an idea of how big the ‘Roc’ is!)

Posted on January 26th, 2018 under Posted by

…my Antenociti KS ‘Roc’ arrived on the doorstep. Although I’ve had the ‘Roc’ for nearly a week I haven’t done more than get the parts out of the box to inspect and dry fit them. Excellently designed and cast in resin the kit requires very little clea…
