Preslotta Citadel Miniatures Gnorman Gnoll Reinforcements

Posted on September 28th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Decades of exposure to Games Workshop’s marketing materials has conditioned me not to paint individual figures, but regiments, and then armies.  There was no stopping at just one Gnorman Gnoll.  Gnot on your gnelly.  eBay trawling has turned up two more preslotta gems from 1981–3. Lord Tisserand with his hawk Antonius, accompanied by two Gnolls. …

Choose Your Own Adventurers – Episode 11: Indiana Jones, Xenoarchaeologist

Posted on September 18th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Warhammer 40,000 and archaeology.  My two hobbies melded together.  There’s not been this much combination of leisure pursuits since the notorious Inquisitor Bingedrink. “1988 Rogue Trader Citadel miniature?  That belongs in a museum.” You might wonder what Indy is doing in the forty-first millennium, but seems Games Workshop had a serious thing for the archeologist …

 The other day I received a mysterious package, and well, if it weren’t for a couple of clues I would be pretty freaked out. For starters, I receive a shipping notification from Poland. Ohh I think, is it a Kickstarter? Well the shipping and tracking data gave no information, only that the package came from Poland.

Chaos Talisman Trio

Posted on September 14th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

One day at Games Workshop HQ, Aly Morrison came up to me with a big bag of Talisman figures.  “I found this bag of scrabby old models in my basement, and I was gonna bin ’em.  Then I remembered you like scrabby old stuff.”  I was over the moon.  Here’s the first three painted. The …

Peter Davison Fifth Doctor Who by Harlequin

Posted on August 25th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve got a soft spot for Peter Davison’s Fifth Doctor. Probably because his run on Doctor Who started with a couple of very strong science fiction stories – Logopolis and Castrovalva. And I think Earthshock is the definitive Cyberman story. So I started my new collection of 28mm Doctor Who miniatures with him.  It’s the first […]

Rogue Trader Lizard – Space Cowboy

Posted on August 15th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

The Rogue Trader Lizard is an obscure collector’s piece.  Designed to take the plastic RTB01 Space Marines, this miniature was only available through Mail Order for a brief time in 1988.  I nabbed one for a bargain years ago, but never had the willpower or funds to collect enough to make a full squad (as, […]
