I am popping back in for a brief moment to promote my buddy Rico’s new online store!http://thriftywargamer.com/He’s got a lot of great stuff on offer, and if you live in the USA, it’s well worth a few minutes browsing on his site. Give it a look!P…

Modeling ain’t easy…

Posted on October 25th, 2013 under Posted by

The 1/72 project has spiraled out of control. After the incorrect attempt to match up Zeros and P-40s I switched it up to Kittyhawks vs Bf-109s in the desert. Its a great setting with some great color schemes to model. After some more research I settle…

Finally getting an airbrush has opened up a whole new world. Its a somewhat frustrating world, featuring endless decisions regarding paint, thinning, cleaning, moisture traps, needles, cleaning, future, flat coats, cleaning, etc… While I cut my teet…

Chaos Bike

Photographing this thing was not fun. Building it was. If you fudge the trees like I did there isn’t any serious engineering. Some tube and bits and there you go. I have a few more unpainted. I had a concept for a really biker heavy force but that got …

Hey, folks.  Life events swirling around me have changed me. I no longer possess the zeal to game, paint, and post.  It is unlikely I will be quite the same person when I come out on the other side of this, so who knows if and when I will ret…

Alpha Strike: A Base-ic Problem

Scott Pyle

Our foray into 3mm (1/600) Alpha Strike has hit a snag as we wait for bases to arrive from various providers.  I want to do this whole thing “right,” and for me that means cool-looking hex bases of the appropriate size.  So I’ve ordered 15mm …

He’s a Bones Hellhound, but I am using him as a Chaos Hound in the store WFB Chaos campaign. A quick, simple paint job on this guy got him on the table and into the fray–check him out!A bit blurry, but a size comp w/Champion. Thanks for visiting!…

An occassional installment musing on miniatures, reading, and whatnot.My copy of 13th Age from Pelgrane Press arrived, and I am incredibly impressed with the finished book. This is a fantasy RPG that beautifully mixes classic fantasy and indie design a…

Alpha Strike: Exterminator

Scott Pyle

I like solid, one-piece castings, and the Iron Wind Metals Exterminator falls into that category.  This 65 ton heavy ‘Mech offers a nice mix of energy and ballistic attacks, and the profile I’ll likely use for AS is the EXT-5F version that offers …
