I really didn’t expect to progress so quickly with my new display board but I had a puncture last week which meant I had to take a day off to get it replaced. This afforded me some time during the day to work on the board. In the hobby for me, some job…

Terrain is everything – New display board

I started this display board the other week. This patterned sheet of hardboard was left at my Aunt’s house when we cleared it after she passed away. It has a glossy finish to look like tiles and I hoped the slightly embossed pattern might still be visi…

Terrain is everything – Sanctum Imperialis Big Build TO DONE!

Posted on May 9th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Posted on January 23rd, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

One of the things you will find as a Cold War-era gamer (and Twilight: 2000 is firmly a Cold War-era game) is that terrain is tough to come by, and what terrain you can find is difficult to make look “right”. You’re often reduced to just putting lots o…

It’s been a long process, working on my Anglo-Zulu War Armies, and although the figures are all painted (and have been for nearly 10 years) they still await their basing completed. Luckily the terrain is a happier story, thanks to

Funnily enough I can never seem to find a complete ‘To Done’ showcase of my scratchbuilt Tyranid Skyshield Landing Pad. The best I have doesn’t feature the walls/petals, they hadn’t been completed at that stage. In all honesty these aren’t great pics b…

With plans to run a couple of Dad’s Army games soon we decided that there was a need for more bits and bobs around the buildings. With that in mind Geoff bought the two garden sets made by Warbases. As this was my game, I felt that I should help out a …
