Bot-tastic Saturday.

Yep… I’m still bored so here is a full army pic of my Beetlebot force:Click the Pic!It isn’t the best of pictures but I am still getting used to my new camera (which is more of a ‘fun camera’ than a proper camera).The Beetlebots have cropped up on he…

It’s Grymn down South…

I was sitting, minding my own business, when I suddenly realised that I haven’t posted an army pic for my Tunnel Fighters.

The only previous picture of any note was this one but it was only the basic units:

Click the Pic!
Well… seeing as I have time on my hands and had nothing too pressing to do, I decided to dig everything out and plonk it on the table… so here is the entire army (including the white vehicle which is the only unit that remains unfinished):
Click the Pic!
As part of this random event, I decided to make a rough tally of how much it had cost and I suddenly realised that I spend far too much on my hobby. Without taking into account the paint, glue, putty and man-hours to build it up, it comes in at around £1100.00… that’s a whole lot of money spent on a completely unpractical thing… Anyway, here’s a pic with a few labels:
Click the Pic!
Hopefully, when I get back from my tour, I will dedicate the required effort to finish the command vehicle, varnish the remaining un-varnished items and finally finish this project once and for all.
If nothing else, this project shows that you can take fairly random items and tie them all together with a coherent paint scheme and a bit of explanation. It also shows that it is possible to complete an army, even though every single unit is converted in some way.
See you from the cupboard!

It’s nearly Christmas!

Packing up and preparing.

This week has been one of packing things away and preparing to go away for four months. I have had confirmation that I will be deployed to the Falkland Islands the day after Boxing Day (if I’m lucky) or possibly as early as 23rd Dec (if I’m not lucky)….

A bit of a downer.

Welcome to Inso’s World and this week I have no hobby stuff to share. Why? Well… if you read on, you’ll find out.In the military, you often have to go away on detachments/deployments and sometimes they are planned months in advance and a rota is sort…

I knew I wouldn’t be able to focus on the Squat project this week… especially when I have my Mechadrome mechs sitting so close. As a result, I have spent a lot of the week messing around with my mechs and… to be brutally honest… first impressions…
