First Place Sci-Fi Unit at Salute 2014

Posted on April 13th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

Well I’m ecstatically happy to report that my Infinity Aleph squad took first place in the Salute painting competition sci-fi unit category! Here you can see them on the base plinth I constructed out of plasticard to help tie them all together. I thought it would just be a bit more interesting than having them […]

Salute 2014 Incoming

Posted on March 29th, 2014 under , . Posted by

Oops, looks like I missed the deadline to purchase advance tickets to this year’s Salute show. Oh well, at least I can buy my ticket on the door. The show, which I can only assume is the biggest in the tabletop wargaming hobby, will be at London Excel again on Saturday April 12th. I shall […]

Infinity Marut Work in Progress

Posted on March 24th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

My parents came up to visit for the day today and my Dad had his new camera with him (a Lumix “Bridge” camera) so I thought I’d have a quick play to see what results I could get. Pretty pleased, even though I didn’t have long to fiddle with the settings and setup. Here’s a […]

More Aleph Finished

Posted on March 23rd, 2014 under , , . Posted by

Work on my Infinity Aleph miniatures continues and here I present a fresh batch. It’s sort of cheating to say that they’re all newly painted as, with the exception of the Myrmidon with Spitfire (dude standing on the pipes), they’re ones I got mostly done for the Infinity campaign last year. This week I went […]

Hisao – Bushido Commission

Posted on March 8th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

I don’t do much commission work as I tend to prefer working on my own projects at my own schedule, but when I was approached by GCT Studios and asked if I’d paint something for their Bushido game I was definitely interested. Bushido is, unsurprisingly, a fantasy Oriental themed game that has a lot in […]

Upcoming London Painters Meetup, March 23rd

Posted on February 28th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

How funny that we waited the best part of a year to have a Platoon Britannica painter’s meetup in London, and then we’ve gone and booked another one for March. So, if you missed us last time or were one of those who joined us to sit painting, chatting and generally hobbying, then do come […]

London Painters Meetup, February 2014

Posted on February 17th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

Had a great afternoon of painting with fellow hobbyists yesterday at the Platoon Britannica painters meetup. It’s been almost a full year since our last meetup so we were long overdue a painting day and we had a pretty decent turnout of eight painters – probably the most so far. Dark Sphere were kind enough […]

GoGo Marlene, War Correspondent

Posted on February 4th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

Yep, that’s right, GoGo Marlene is a war correspondent in the Infinity universe. Well, I see her as more of a manga-styled future entertainment media personality really. Which is my excuse anyway for painting her in these outrageous colours. I also figure she’s pretty fashion conscious and would insist that her companion camera bot would […]

Widowmaker Progress

Posted on February 1st, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

Quick update on the Widowmaker. Remember her? I last posted about her back in June it seems! Anyway, after a period of working on Infinity and then Bolt Action Germans for tabletop, I thought I’d go back to the Khador Widowmaker miniature, which I am painting up for the sheer pleasure and to display in […]

London Painters Meetup Feb 16th

Posted on January 17th, 2014 under . Posted by

It’s been quite a while since we last had a London miniature painters meetup and I thought it was about time we got one in the calendar. So, if you’re a local painter and want to spend a pleasant afternoon chatting and painting, sharing tips ‘n techniques, showing off your work, or just socialising with […]

Late War Matt Germans

Posted on January 14th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I’ve got my second Bolt Action day approaching this weekend – Tom and James inbound with their US Airborne and British Commandos respectively. We’re escalating to 600 points worth this time around. Not quite enough for that Panzer… Anyway, I’ve been making steady progress on my late war German platoon and I have some finished […]

The firm but fair 2014 games embargo

Posted on January 2nd, 2014 under , . Posted by

I know they’re all the rage at this time of year but I’m not going to do much more than a passing review of 2013. Generally speaking I had a good year hobby-wise, I think. My painting has come on further both in quality but also significantly in terms of speed. I’ve reached a good […]

Back and in Normandy

Posted on December 30th, 2013 under , , . Posted by

Well that was a long break. Sorry about that but I just felt like taking a little breather from the blog and I guess I had burned myself out a bit on the Infinity minis, so I put down the brushes for a little while. Well I’m back now and have been working pretty hard […]

A bit late but tied at the top

Posted on October 11th, 2013 under , , , , . Posted by

Sadly I have to report that I failed to get the Marut finished in time for my game on Tuesday. I don’t know what happened but the cracking pace I had the day before just seemed to vanish, or, more likely, I underestimated how much still needed doing. Anyway, upshot was that I had to […]

One day and one Marut to go

Posted on October 6th, 2013 under , , . Posted by

Just one day of painting to go before the last Infinity game of the mini league and I think I am well on track to get the five miniatures done. I managed to get the Myrmidon, Probot, Phoenix and a Posthuman Proxy finished and made some good progress on the Marut this evening. I’m not […]
