This model was the first one I bought for Tally Ho! It has been stuck in a box for about twenty years..

I have done some more work on my Old West gunfighters. I am keeping the paint jobs relatively simple, so I can do them “quickly”, though “quickly” for me often means rather slowly… The method is to paint the basecoats of the different aspcts of clothing, shoes, hats, guns and flesh. The models are then […]

At Reveille, the Bristol show last year I spent a little time looking at the models and talking to the guys at Clockwork Goblin Miniatures about their great 15mm (and 28mm) alternative World War Two infantry, walkers and tanks, called War Without End.

The Stormbird Gunship is an armoured versatile craft that combines the role of dropship, armoured transport and strike craft. This is from an old White Dwarf and shows how Games Workshop back then thought the Stormbird looked like. Back in 2011 I posted one gamer’s interpretation of that pencil drawing of a Stormbird.
