As well as the Brown Water Navy announcement in Battlefront’s Flames of War State of the Union, they announced a new period based on the Cold War. October sees us diving into a brand new period as we release Fulda Gap. The period of the modern war when tensions between NATO and the Warsaw Pact […]

Battlefront have published a state of the nation article about their forthcoming releases for 2015. One that piked my interest was Brown Water Navy.

15mm German Light Mechpanzer Spinne Platoon

Posted on March 4th, 2015 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

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. In the end I bought a single blister, a 15mm US Kodiak […]

WhoLock

I missed this when it first came to the fore. Wholock: in which Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock and Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor appeared to meet in a video seamlessly cut together from the shows. This is how some of the VFX were done.

Space Marine Sokar Pattern Stormbird

Posted on February 10th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

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.

Space Marine Xiphon Pattern Interceptor

Posted on February 8th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Though it reminds me of many of the Imperial Navy aircraft, I actually think this is a good thing, as a result this Space Marine aircraft looks much better than many of the Space Marine flying craft we have seen before. I did think when I first saw the photograph that it was an Imperial […]

Space Marine Vindicator

Posted on February 6th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

The Vindicator is a Rhino-based siege tank that boasts the most devastating weapon in the Space Marines’ armoury – the demolisher cannon. The demolisher cannon is the weapon of choice amongst the Imperium’s armies when faced with dug-in enemy infantry in a dense environment such as a cityfight or siege. The terrific blast unleashed by […]

Capitain Craupaud – Darkest Africa

I have been sculpting the bases and painting some more Foundry miniatures from their Darkest Africa range that I am going to use with my Tally Ho! rules as well as Old West games. Standing somewhat aloof, Capitain Craupaud holds his pistol ready for an…
