Privateer Press obviously do a huge range of models, many of which are suitable to use in a more steampunk setting. These gun drones are yet more additions to my robotic Steam Wars army.

These are made by Tor Gaming for the Relics game, but I have hijacked them to use in my Robotic Steam Wars army. Six in a pack was perfect and they don’t take much to paint up.
The R2-D2 model came off a McDondald’s Fatty Meal toy. Can’t remember who made the humanoid robot, it has been kicking around for years, I think it may be a Rackham model. I have a few uses for these models, mainly for my robotic Steam Wars army, but also for use in Rogue Stars. These … Continue reading B4-P0 & AR-Two →
I have not played Warhammer 40k for quite a few years, which is a shame as I have a Blood Angels army that I really like. Games Workshop are releasing a new version this year, which will be available as a free download from the sound of it. I may just give it a go. … Continue reading 40k 8th Edition →
Salute is over for another year. Although I managed to avoid buying into any new games, I did pick up a few mdf bits, some resin control panels and crew for a sci-fi spaceship project, a Wolsung robot thing and a few extra Black Scorpion Navy Marines. This Infinity Sci-Fi table was my favourite of … Continue reading Post Salute →
Salute is tomorrow, I feel for my wallet.
Small, cute, hard target.
A couple of colours and then an ink wash. Done.
This is the first GW model I have seen in ages that I could be persuaded to purchase, especially with my steampunk fixation still running high. I say “could”, as at £50 (US$80) it is a significant amount of cash. It should be available with 10% off from an independent reseller, which would make it … Continue reading Arkanaut Frigate →
A am taking a week off in the sun somewhere to chill out and drink Gin.
I may be back.
Free sample models are great, especially when I eventually find a use for one. This Dreamforge Games alien chap was holding a lead with some sort of beastie on the other end. As one of my exotic Rogue Stars crews was expanding, this model would be ideal. I removed the lead and replaced it with … Continue reading Dreamforge Alien →
The third of our recent pirate games was with Games Workshop’s Legends Of The High Seas rules. We had found over the last few weeks that Osprey’s On The Seven Seas was way too slow and not quite what we were looking for. Cutlass was much better with a nice dice mechanism but an activation … Continue reading Legends Of The High Seas →
I have no idea what the weapon profile will be yet for this piece, but it does look quite good. Based on a Titan Forge Metal Beards bolt thrower model, I have just reversed the arms and covered up the bolt.
Maverick Viñales is quickest again in practice at the MotoGP in Argentina. It does look like this year is a change of old guard with some new riders rising to the top. Makes it all very interesting. If you like bikes!
Getting into Rogue Stars has allowed me to dig up some old models from the Loft Full Of Lead that don’t get to come out very often. One such model for an alien crew was this Zykhee Soulless. I rebased it and gave it an ink wash as it was painted years ago and looked … Continue reading Zykhee Soulless →
Not quite finished, I may just leave it as factory fresh and not apply any weathering or damage.
