In today’s Hobbytime we take a look at how to prepare your Dungeon Saga models for painting. Dungeon Saga is available to pre order on the Mantic Store now!
Great little article posted this week by Leif Eriksson with some great tips on the differences between painting a figure and a vehicle. Blindingly obvious really, but I’ve never seen it written so clearly and concisely, or thought about it …
During the interwar years, many people were alarmed at the increasing urbanisation of the countryside. Notables such as J. B. Priestley, writing of his ‘English Journey’, and Clough Williams-Ellis, author of ‘England and The Octopus’, complained o…
A long, long time ago the postman delivered to Kingsleypark ManorActually he delivered 3 of these boxes as they were the Russian Tank Brigade Deal that PSC offer the discerning gamer who is looking to build a horde of Russian tanks at compara…
Amongst Mig’s recent releases are three interesting jungle foliage sets: terms, plans and jungle leaves.
They are at the 28mm+ size scales but would make great additions to Heavy jungles and Lost World style projects. No good for historical 15s…
Over the past months over 100 New Zealand wargamers have been painting 5,000 miniature soldiers for a huge diorama of the Battle of Chunuk Bair for the forthcoming The Great War Exhibition in Wellington. This is part of an ANZAC commemorative project…
Over the past week it seems like we have had a lot of community action going on – so let’s take a look at what has been going on in the world of Mantic! The Kings of War 2 beta army lists have been updated! For those of you that don’t know, the Kings of […]
Felt like a quiet day so I painted my Coven models that I got from the KS. Very nice models apart from the Powerhouse who I just didn’t like. So I added some claws and a head piece . Still looks a bit static but its better. I also made up some the temporary minions […]
Pulp city dot com has started updating the web site to have the new cards. See here for list of Heroes and Villains. Here is an example of an updated card and what it means Twilight level 1 infiltrator with mystery alignment, generates 2 AP each turn and no minion points. Mounted on a 30mm base and […]
Still lots to do but almost ready for a game or two. They are a bit brighter than photo suggests but I do tend to be quite a dark painter anyway. Very nice to paint and the variety is brilliant. Each model is unique and they are require different techniques. The big powerhouse, Cro Mag […]
Well some of them are based, enough to have a starter game with my mate. I based up the Coven on some resin bases from Taban and made up a 50mm using a 40mm plus the rim from a 50mm. I based the Villains on some resin secret model bases. They are ok but not […]
The Mantic Battlezones scenery is a fantastic, easy to assemble system. Everything works based on a 3” square tile. You simply take a tile, add some connectors and fix the next one to it, and so on. Before you know it you have futuristic cities for short range firefights, or the interior corridors of a […]
|Probably the greatest tool in miniature painting history after the brush itself|
My last couple of weeks have included minimal hobby time, so I still have no new models to share. I have also been held back by a desperate need for resupply; I have several paints and other modelling supplies on order from various stores that I’m waiting to receive before I can progress my Astra Militarum vehicles. I could, of course, be working on my infantry, but I honestly just haven’t found the motivation to grind my way through painting mass Guardsmen.

Part 3: It’s all about the Base! So I’ve chosen the Faction, written my first army list, bought the models… now I need to start building my army! Everything in Kings of War has a base which is it’s Footprint. Infantry take up the smallest area so are represented on 20mm or 25mm square bases, […]
Yet another not-very-interesting post today I’m afraid, serving to document what I’ve painted as opposed to entertaining the reader.
Another set of Tamiya 1/35 brick walls assembled and painted to add to the scenery pile in readiness for March’s Big Game (Burley Gate, Herefordshire, Saturday, 14th March).
Speaking of which, we’ve had a couple of players drop out recently, so if anyone’s interested in popping along, then please let me know (cost will be £10-£15 which includes buffet). More details here.
