Dremel Dremel

Posted on December 10th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

I got absolutely frozen and soaked this morning at the sprog’s rugby practice, so didn’t fancy sitting in an equally frozen garage at the workbench this afternoon with shaky painting hands. Instead, I whipped out my Dremel and cut off the sharp ends of…

Ramshackle Conversion Pack

Posted on December 8th, 2017 under , . Posted by

It’s pay day so I have splashed out on a pack of 20mm conversion bits for diecast toy cars from Ramshackle Games. I’m not keen on the over sized 40K style guns but the drivers, ram plates, turrets and missile pods should be very useful. 

Gaslands Gangs

Posted on December 6th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I’ve been rummaging about for various ‘stuff’ to use as conversion material for diecast toy cars, so that I can put together a second ‘gang’ for Gaslands and Axles and Alloys. I already have half a dozen Hotwheels and Matchbox conversions, all of …

Blotz Gas Station and Diner

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

I thought I’d invest in a small number of 20mm scale scenic features to tart up my desert terrain for use with Gaslands and other post-apocalyptic car combat games like Axles and Alloys II. There’s not a lot out there in 20mm but this petrol stati…

A Prayer to St. Strelok – part 3

Posted on November 29th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

At first Yuri thought Sasha had given him the headache; a clip and a half of her painful chatter followed by his mad dash through the swamp, gulping down bog stench and terror. But that was almost an hour ago and the throb was only getting worse. Every step deeper into the Chernya was like … Continue reading “A Prayer to St. Strelok – part 3”

Gaslands Bundle

Posted on November 28th, 2017 under . Posted by

I have now received the bundle of Gaslands rules, dice and templates that I ordered a while back, so will be flicking through the book over the next couple of days. The first impression is that a simple idea, driving around shooting things and crashing…

A Prayer to St. Strelok, Part 2

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

  It was worse than he feared, the Wet Valley. Clouds of bugs, calf-deep mud, and the rotten, low tide stink… Gah! It was so rank it burned the hairs in his nose. Yuri pulled his scarf up so as to not puke breakfast. Visibility was crap in the tall grass and the hiss of … Continue reading “A Prayer to St. Strelok, Part 2”

Work In Progress

Posted on November 23rd, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Today has proven to be another busy one. Whilst I seem to have been busy enough painting I haven’t got that much done. My mind has jumped from one project to the next. The ghoul figures are pretty much done but I am now working on the bases. They looke…

Why STALKER?

Posted on November 10th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

As the setting for a skirmish wargame setting? Are you kidding? If you have ever played any of the STALKER PC games, you shouldn’t be asking that question. And if you haven’t played STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl, Call of Pripyat, or Clear Sky, you need to get on that. Right now. Dark, brooding, creeping dread … Continue reading “Why STALKER?”

Here’s one I made earlier!The lady wife has been very nice and has allowed me to pre-order the Gaslands rules, counters, markers and dice bundle as a n early Xmas present. It’s not out until the end of the month anyway, so will be wrapped up when it ar…

Gaslands Offer

Posted on November 5th, 2017 under . Posted by

I signed up to playtest these post-apocalypse car combat rules a couple of years ago but, due to the horrible meltdown at work and the resulting stress, I just didn’t have the time. At the club, however, some of the chaps did do some playtesting and us…

Happy Birthday To Me AND The Start of Zomtober Week 5

Posted on October 24th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

The day hasn’t been too bad to me so far. The best gift was a copy of Terraforming Mars which is a game I have been dying to play for ages. A load of The Walking Dead: All Out War Stuff that I am going to have to send back. Amazingly a load of the mini…

Well I have had a blip for a few days but I seem to be over it now. Somewhere along the line I have managed to get a solid three hours of painting in today. Whilst I am not speeding through the work, I am at least making progress.A little bit of everyt…
