Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters?

Posted on June 24th, 2016 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Following on from my Avengers Mansion, I thought that Arkham would also make a decent Xavier’s School for Gifted Younsters. Using the same parts of Arkham, I have set them out in a wider layout to give the impression of a large school instead of a…

Saga in 6mm – making terrain

Posted on June 20th, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Per Broden has posted a new update on his 6mm Saga project blog for the Joy of Six show on July 17th 2016. In this entry, he discusses how he created all the scenery (including a use of spaghetti that I had never considered!)   – the tables he has produced are almost entirely hand-made, and look fantastic. This is an excellent an inspiring blog entry – well worth a look.Filed under: Gaming Blogs, Historical Gaming, Painting & Modelling, Shows / Conventions / Events Tagged: Dark Age, Saga, Scenery

20160508-40k Scenery-200Something a little different here. A while back we painted a Forge World Imperial Redoubt board.

Grim’s Dungeons of Doom: Realm of the dead; Cemetery Gateway

Hello everyone, it’s me Grim. In my absence, I at least have been amassing a fair bit of material here to continue on with both this series and the blog. I hope you’ll forgive my leave, but shit happens. So, it’s been a while since posting the last dungeons of doom article. With that in […]

Infinity GrimDark – Aegis Defense line & bunkers

Posted on June 10th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Time to kick off with the first finished set of buildings. I started with painting up a bunch of wall sections, the two defense guns and two watch towers/bunkers. To keep the lot interchangeable between Infinity, Warpath/Deadzone and Warhammer 40k, I opted for not applying any decals, but creating setting specific adverts and posters one […]

New buildings from Najelwitz Modellbau

Posted on June 8th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

One of the questions I was asked a lot last weekend was ‘What make are your buildings?’. In the small town we had set up, the two buildings on the bottom right are both from Tiger Terrain, whilst everything else comes from German company Najelwitz Modellbau. I thought that I would check their website, and I was very pleased to discover that they have recently released some new 15mm buildings, the most eye-catching of which was a new Industrial Complex. The Complex is available in both 15mm and 1:72 scale, with the 15mm version costing 62.00 EUR and the 1:72 version 90.00 EUR. Shipping is 10 EUR to Europe , or 15 EUR to the Rest of the World. This has immediately been added to my shopping list. By the way, they have also released a number of 15mm German buildings which are suitable for use with Team Yankee.Filed under: Accessories, Historical Gaming Tagged: 15mm Gaming, 20mm Gaming, Scenery

Walking down Gaslamp Alley

Here is the model from the Sarissa website. The Sarissa Precision models are laser cut MDF and come plain. I do quite like how the […]

Brigade Models – New Scenery and Weapons

Posted on May 21st, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Some awesome new stuff from the folks at Brigade Models. Continuing with their growing 15mm science fiction scenery range they add a new, raised colonial housing structure along with some new weapon emplacements.

Here’s what they have to say about it….
Some houses in the desert wastelands are built up on high plinths to keep them safe from predators – this is one such design, accessed by a single stairway to a raised platform. This new 15mm building is available today.

I’ve also been tinkering with some of our recent releases, combining them with other parts to see what I could come up with. In particular, the new Fasolini tracked gun units have all sorts of possibilities. I’ve added a missile launcher and radar dish to the tracked base to create mobile anti-tank and comms systems, as well as a 5-barrel gatling weapon, known as the Lucane (Stag Beetle) family. I’ve also put the single-barrel gun on a ground mount to create a light AA gun (the quad gun was unfortunately a bit too big to fit the base and overbalances). These are listed under the EuroFed.

B15-130 – Plinth Dwelling – £10.00
SF15-416b – Lucane Tracked Missile System – £4.00
SF15-416c – Lucane Tracked Radar Unit – £3.75
SF15-416d – Lucane Tracked Gatling – £3.75
SF15-416e – Ground-mount AA Gun – £3.75

Cell Block-H

Posted on May 17th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

From Brigade Models.
One of the most popular 15mm building sets we’ve come out with has been the Research Base. Possibly because it’s a very versatile design that will stand in as a military barracks, PoW or prison camp or general purpose civilian huts. Today we have a new addition to the base, a double hut connected by a central corridor – in other words, an H-Block. In its original guise as a cold weather research base it means that the occupants can move from hut to hut without stepping outside in the cold, which has to be a good thing !

B15-505 – H-Block – £10.00

My girlfriend is out of town with friends so I’ve had a bachelor/wargamer weekend and gotten a lot done on my Infinity figures. The planters are foamed PVC sheet and mat board offcuts, and the trees are from Games Workshop — at one point they produced a rather nice set of modular plastic “tropical trees” … Continue reading The Workbench This Weekend, 7 May 2016

Playingtheodds – Building your own Battle Mat

Posted on April 29th, 2016 under , . Posted by

Recently, a blog update from Playing The Odds showed how you could make your own flexible gaming mat. It’s a really interesting article which looks to give a great result, and very much appeals to the ‘DIY Wargamer’ part of me. Although we have a static 6′ x 4′ table, this gives me a few … Continue reading Playingtheodds – Building your own Battle Mat
