Antenocitis Workshop launch new 15mm/28mm sci-fi vehicle range on Kickstarter

Posted on August 3rd, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

I have always felt that there has been something of a hole in the 28mm sci-fi vehicles market since Old Crow Models essentially ceased trading. In recent years, there have been a few companies who have started to produce more vehicles in this scale, one of these is Antenocitis Workshop, who have a very nice range 28mm vehicles and terrain, including their Governance of Technology range, which is available both in 28mm and 15mm This week Antenocitis Workshop have launched a Kickstarter project to produce a new range of vehicles in both 28mm and 15mm to add to their existing Governance of Technology range – the United States Independent Military Force, or US-IMF. This range includes wheeled and tracked vehicles, walkers and a couple of superb flyers: The kickstarter project is running until the 16th August, and has already rwahced over 200% of its £6,000 funding goal. Delivery is due in July 2018.Filed under: Crowdfunding Tagged: 15mm Gaming, 28mm Gaming, Sci-Fi Gaming

Kenneth’s Heroes – Building the board, Part II

Posted on June 1st, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Over the past few weeks, Dave Luff and I have been scratch-building scenery for our “Kenneth’s Heroes” game for Operation Market Larden, which is being held next weekend (10th June).

First off is the Brewery, which has been built from foamcore, plasticard, MDF and embossed plastic walls from Plast Craft Games. Then there are the walled gardens and village high walls, also built from a mixture of foamcore and plasticard: The Churchyard has been made from foamcore, MDF and some embossed plastic walls from Plast Craft Games. The Gravestones are from Magister Militum. The final table, ready for play-testing the scenario: Filed under: Painting & Modelling Tagged: 15mm Gaming, Chain Of Command, Terrain, World War II

What is the best scale to wargame?

Posted on May 19th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

You’ve all seen them – the posts from those who are new to wargaming that ask the apparently simple question: “What scale should I game in?” This is usually the cue for any number of gamers claiming that 54mm/40mm/28mm/20mm/15mm/10mm/6mm/2mm (delete as appropriate) is “God’s own scale” for wargaming and that the poser of the question would be stupid for choosing anything else. The discussion usually goes downhill from there… However, it’s a perfectly valid question – so what are the criteria that you should consider when choosing what scale to game in? Here are my thoughts on what you should consider when choosing either a new period, or even getting into gaming for the first time: What has everyone else got? One of the first considerations when choosing your scale of miniatures for a new period is to actually ask who your opponent will be, and what armies do they own? If you are in a situation where you will be playing other people, then it would seem sensible to ensure that you choose the same scale figures, so that you have ‘instant’ opponents to do battle against. If no-one else has an army for that period, then you may want to […]
