Basing in the Old West

Posted on July 23rd, 2014 under , . Posted by

Felix

I took my recent find of Old West miniatures and “flocked” their bases with Citadel Sand. As well as the sand, I added some slate pieces. All this was held together with PVA white glue. The next stage was then to give the models a white undercoat. …

Back in 2012 NASA said they were working on a “warp drive” though it would take some time before we would see ships capable of faster than light travel. Well we might not see them for a while, but thanks to artist Mark Rademaker, we can see…

Ork Morkanaut

Felix

I wasn’t expecting to see new Ork stuff so soon, or has it been longer than I think since we last saw new Ork releases. The new Ork Morkanaut certainly is a nice new design, that I quite like. Personally built and piloted by an Ork Mekboy, the Mo…

ALIENS in Lego

Lego seems to be having something of a renaissance over the last few years, or is it just that the internet allows for many more people to share their creations. I was impressed with these creations of scenes from ALIENS in Lego. lots of clever details…

Remove the camera shake from Star Trek, and what do you get…

Felix

Those who know a thing or two about Star Trek will know that when the Enterprise is attacked with disrupter fire from the Klingons (or the Romulans) the bridge shakes. The method they used on the sets, was to shake the camera and the actors would then …

Much better…

I really didn’t like the new Taurox Prime from Citadel, however I do think the Astra Militarum Wyvern is a much better designed model. The Wyvern Suppression Tank exchanges the Hydra’s anti-aircraft autocannons for a pair of twin-linked stormsh…

Really don’t like it…

The Taurox Prime is a robust infantry assault vehicle. It is heavily armoured with thick plates and is equipped with an array of heavy weapons to support the Scions on the battlefield. Is it just me, or does the design of this model just look wrong? Th…

I already have quite a few miniatures suitable for the Old West style game. At GamesDay 2008 I did purchase the Warhammer Historical Old West rules and for Christmas 2008 I was lucky enough to get some Foundry Old West miniatures. This is Choctaw Charl…

Malto Cortese – Tally Ho!

Felix

Having given him a white undercoat, I started painting the model. Malto Cortese is a really nice sculptured model and quite different to the other miniatures in the A League of Exceptional Gentleman – DA012 range. I think this will be a really useful…

Not much to see here…. I quite like the idea of a digital version of Talisman. What about you?

Bill Longley

Bill Longley is part of the OW9/1 Shootists pack. After giving the model a white undercoat, I began to paint it with a series of browns and dark reds, initially I started with his hat.
