Star Wars Stormtrooper – Bandai 1/12 Scale Model Kit [Review: Part 2 of 3 – Assembly, decals and paints]
With a much welcomed short break for the lunar new year holidays and missus’s birthday behind me, it was time to get back to assembling Bandai’s 1/12 scale Star Wars Stormtrooper plastic model kit. Picking up from where I last left-off, work continued with the assembly of the stormtrooper’s legs.

Steps 7 & 8: Left leg assembled in similar fashion to step
Simulating the occasional tournament is about as close as I’ll ever come to the top tables at an event like the Las Vegas Open. When it comes down to it, I’m […]
Star Wars Stormtrooper – Bandai 1/12 Scale Model Kit [Review: Part 1 of 3 – Unboxing and initial assembly]
With paint supplies for my Millennium Falcon project not forthcoming, I turned my attention to another Bandai Star Wars plastic model kit – the 1/12 Stormtrooper. Paint-wise, I have what’s needed so it’s a no-brainer to put the Falcon on hold and proce…
I picked up a pack of Impudent Mortal’s Near Future Elevator Set, as mentioned in a previous post, and thought I’d put a few pictures up and do a bit of a review. First, I have to say that Walt, the man behind Impudent Mortal, is awesome to deal with. He’s incredibly quick to reply … Continue reading Review: Impudent Mortal Near Future Elevators →

This week I got a new Forge World painting guide book The Horus Heresy Model Master Class Volume 1. I already own two of the previous Forge World painting books Imperial Armour volume 1 and II, which are great. So it was a no brainer for me to get the new book, I didn’t even read the reviews, relying on the usual high level of quality.

Some time ago in a series of articles about the tools I’ve mentioned about homemade “instrument”. I use it mainly for precise input of Superglue drops. Some time ago I bought in the the PK-PRO store FLEX-I-FILE “A/C Applicator”.

So for this review we picked the Church Ruins which can be found in the Puppetswar webstore here along with loads more interesting terrain. You can even find the intact versions of this church or cathedral. The actual Church Ruins contains six nicely decorated scenic pieces each containing different parts of the collapsed building. The bases are filled with fallen arches, ruined pillars, small stone debris bond together with fine texturing sand suitable to represent either tiny rubble or earth.
To be honest when I first saw these I was really amazed at the amount of great details and patterns which decorated these pieces. These ruins are generic enough to be used in grim dark futuristic settings but can also easily be used for fantasy and historical games. Actually thinking of using these to represent the frozen ruins of Felstad in the fantasy Frostgrave setting. These pieces can best be used as scatter pieces or difficult terrain as they have quite a large surface but lack a bit of height to make really good line of sight blockers. The total covering surface of these ruins when placed touching each other in a rough rectangle is six hunderd square centimeters. Below you can see all six different pieces of the terrain set which retails at only €17.00 which is insanely cheap in my humble opinion!
Each time I look at these ruined pieces I discover even more great details in the architecture of this fallen cathedral. The quality of the design and casting is flawless as I couldn’t spot any airbubbles or noticable moulding lines. The backs of the pieces were carefully sanded so they lay entirely flat on your chosen playing surface. So if you’re looking to add some ruins to your terrain collection, don’t hesitate and certainly consider these ruined pieces. These pieces currently retail for only €17.00 which is cheap considering the amount of detail and resin these pieces contain. So if interested take a look here and make sure to also check their other terrain and miniatures.

Perhaps the most exciting Oldhammer project this year was the selection of classic sculpts put together by Diego Serrate in his Space Raiders (Spider Riders) Kickstarter. Diego created some classic archetypes that we of the greyer breed treasure, from Orcs to Fishmen to Minotaurs, all in a Space Punk setting and produced in metal. I […]
A couple of weeks ago, my good self and the lads from House of Hengist got together to put on Operation Tonga, a whole day of wargaming recreating 1st Airborne’s coup de main on the bridges over the River Orne; the asssault on the Merville battery; and seizing (and holding) of Le Bas Ranville. The game … Continue reading Operation TONGA ep. 1 →
Many companies used to make one of these: a building that can technically be used as an Objective Room for ITS and Campaign missions that need them. I say technically, because often there’s added embellishments or other changes that don’t strictly adhere to the official requirements. What’s the spoiler for this kit? It’s only 7 … Continue reading Base-O: Objective Unit
I believe the HQ unit is the largest building offered in the Base-O set, making it a fair candidate to be used as my table’s center LoF-blocker. Even then, it’s really only slightly larger than the Habitat Unit 1, costing 28 euros (about $30), roughly only $2 more than that other kit. Unlike Habitat Unit … Continue reading Base-O: HQ Unit

This is the second kit I assembled after the Habitat Unit 2. I’m pretty much just working my way up in size and slight complexity with some preference towards the big pieces. Helps me feel like I’m filling out my table that much quicker. The Habitat Unit 1 costs 26 euro (about $28) and consists … Continue reading Base-O: Habitat Unit 1
