The Work (In Pogress) Continues

Posted on February 20th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

When I got up this morning I decided that I was going to paint ten of the old Grenadier (now Mirliton) trooper figures. Nice simple figures with an almost standard uniform that even if I do give certain aspects of it a camouflage pattern, should be don…

Accidents

Posted on February 12th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Not the major kind. More the fortunate (ish) coincidence kind. I made a determined effort to get the cultists done today. They are still not quite done and there is a little bit of detailing to be done on them. They would have been finished but I got a…

Dwarves In Spaccccceeee

Posted on January 30th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

So it’s the dwarves again. I keep wandering off. There are now about half a dozen background projects that are floating around the desk which are soaking up any paint that would otherwise get wasted. A bit or priming here and a bit of tidying up there …

End Of The Week

Posted on January 21st, 2018 under , . Posted by

Whilst the miniatures painting has gone well this week, it does feel like a good news, bad news kind of week. I have had a good night of gaming on Friday that I really enjoyed. I have lost half a stone in a week pretty much just from walking (admittedl…

Making Progress Again

Posted on January 18th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

This feels like a day I have made some progress, not just miniature painting but in the real world as well. A few little bits and pieces of conversation has made the day better.With today’s painting I am almost at the stage where I can start doing the …

River Troll

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

This uncommonly large beastie has been my main focus today. I am not really sure what he is meant to be in my games but According to Reaper he is a Marsh Troll. I don’t have a clear purpose for him in the Viking game but I can see him as a Mutant in th…

Dremel Dremel

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

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?”

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…
