Schools Out for Summer

Posted on July 22nd, 2017 under . Posted by

It’s been a difficult year at school, with my resignation from my twenty three year job and a fresh start as a supply teacher, although this has gone pretty well so far and I have plenty of work until the end of 2017. It does mean that I have…

15mm Sci-Fi Slowdown

Posted on July 15th, 2017 under . Posted by

I’ve been busy and really tied up with family stuff over the last week or so, which means that progress on the 15mm Sci-Fi Summer project has stalled a bit of late. I have painted in the gun barrels on the tanks, APC’s and mechs, however…

15mm Sci-Fi Landing Pads

Posted on July 13th, 2017 under . Posted by

You can’t really have proper sci-fi campaign without some sort of ‘get to da chopper’ scenario objective or a dropship combat insertion of some sort. Not having a dropship, or even a chopper for that matter, I do now have two landing pads to …

Massive Atomic Cyclops Medium Mech

Posted on July 11th, 2017 under . Posted by

I had a go at working out the stats for the 28mm Copplestone Castings power armour figures that I’m redeploying as 15mm mechs in the Massive Atomic corporate army, using the ever so handy Gruntz Barracks software. In the end, I have made them Medium ra…

15mm Sci-Fi Armour Hover Skirts

Posted on July 10th, 2017 under . Posted by

I started on the hover skirts, for want of a better word, this evening with a basecoat of Foundry Granite Shade and a second layer of Foundry Granite. I was aiming for a battle worn and washed out look rather than just painting them blac…

Starbase 962

Posted on July 9th, 2017 under . Posted by

I was just saying the other day that there’s a bit of a shortage of laser cut mdf sci-fi buildings in 15mm, when Warbases go and start a whole new range called Starbase 962. This is designed around a modular style of building and some associa…

15mm Sci Fi Armour Block Painting

Posted on July 9th, 2017 under . Posted by

    I made some progress with the tanks, APC’s and light mechs yesterday, making up for the fact that I don’t have an airbrush for this sort of thing. I started with an overall wet brush of Foundry Phlegm Green Shade, one of my favo…

15mm Sci Fi Light Mech Scale Comparison

Posted on July 8th, 2017 under . Posted by

I have assembled and under coated the three 28mm Copplestone power armour figures that I’m using as light walkers or mechs for my 15mm sci-fi project, very much in a Heavy Gear style. I thought I’d take a couple of comparative photos alongside the 15mm…

15mm Sci-Fi Infantry Basing

Posted on July 8th, 2017 under . Posted by

I textured the bases on the hard suit infantry yesterday, which took ages as I used a brush to apply the thick PVA and had to avoid getting it all over their feet. I was worried that the edges of the figure bases would show through the grit and sand mi…

Friday Off!

Posted on July 6th, 2017 under . Posted by

I’m not needed at work tomorrow so have a day off, which means I will be able to put in some serious painting time on the 15mm sci-fi army. I very rarely, if ever, have time off, so this is a great opportunity to kick back and enjoy some painting. I’ve…

15mm Sci-Fi Light Mech Squad

I’ve ordered three more of the 28mm Copplestone power armour figures with rotary cannon from Moonfleet Miniatures, to build a six figure strong light mech squad for my 15mm sci-fi Massive Atomic corporate army. Although they will operate as single figu…

15mm Copplestone / EM4 Light Mech

Posted on July 3rd, 2017 under . Posted by

I was looking for something in the storage boxes this evening, when I came across a box of 28mm ex-Grenadier Future Wars figures, which you can now get from EM4, Moonraker Miniatures and Copplestone Castings. Amongst the troopers, post-apocal…

Sci-Fi Landing Pad

Posted on July 2nd, 2017 under . Posted by

All I need now is a dropship or shuttle?I thought it was about time I got hold of some decent sci-fi themed terrain pieces to go with my 15mm armies. It’s not been as easy as I thought to find some suitable laser cut sci-fi buildings but I have just se…
