I have been putting many hours of work on my corridor set for Necromunda.  This is from Death Ray Designs and is made to match the wall siloettes on the game boards. I also got the matching door set.  I really thought this would be a quick pr…

Warlord Tiger Comparison

Posted on May 10th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Recently I completed Warlord Games Michael Wittmann Tiger (which I think is now out of production) and last year I built and painted two Warlord Games plastic Tigers.  I thought it might be interesting to do a side by side comparisons of these two…

Da Bosswagon!

Posted on April 13th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

I have had an unbuilt Ork Battlewagon in my model stash for several years.  The plan was to get an Ork Battlewagon upgrade sprue and really deck it out.  The problem was this project was never a priority so I never ordered the upgrade.  …

Necromunda – Old vs. New Goliath Models

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

When I was taking the pictures of my Necomunda Underhive Goliath models I thought it might be cool to do some comparison pictures between the old and new models.  People are always asking if new models match up with older stuff so take a look.On t…

Necromunda Underhive Goliath

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

As many of you know I am a huge Necromunda fan.  When I heard it was going to have a new edition I knew I was going to jumping in with both feet.  The last time this game got a new edition I had a really crappy attitude and took a bit of a ha…

Union Field Hospital for Black Powder

One of the thinks I love about playing games in a large scale, such as 28mm, is the spectacle of it.  Our ACW Black Powder games have mostly been huge affairs that really draw in spectators.  For these large games there is a lot of opportunit…
