Garden of Morr by GW

Posted on February 28th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I’m taking a break from all the Tabletop World scenery I’ve been doing recently to do some GW ones. The Garden of Morr is a kit I picked up a couple of years ago and it was time to do it. It offers many possibilities with lots of small bits, mausoleums and walls. It’ll be a great addition to the city.

Je fais une petite pause de la gamme Tabletop World pour faire du GW. Le “Jardin de Morr” est un kit que j’avais récupéré il y a 2-3 ans et il était grand temps de le faire. Un très bon set qui offre beaucoup de possibilités et très utile avec ses murs. mausolées etc…Une excellente addition pour ma ville médiévale.


More Jungle To Rumble In

Posted on February 20th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Scored another big paper towel roll from our recycling bin, so I decided to make a fallen tree instead of another upright one. Like the other trees, the fallen tree started with a paper towel roll, scrap cardboard, some CDs, and my hot glue gun. I made the root ridges lower so the tree would … Continue reading More Jungle To Rumble In

Some time ago, I managed to do a model exchange program. My mission was to take care of Hess poisonbreath in exchange for this classic Barbarian from Jes Goodwin when he worked for Asgard.
So a little time ago, I got this guy in the post.

BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 8

Posted on February 7th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Blomping along… Primer! Got the gondola spray-primed grey and the balloon envelope brush-primed black. The LAF Build Something 2017 contest rules ask that you not post painting progress photos of your project past the priming stage, so this will be the last photo anyone sees of the Blomp itself for a while. I’ll try and … Continue reading BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 8

In the Jungle, the Mighty Jungle…

Posted on February 5th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Several years ago now I did a whole banker’s box full of jungle terrain, but it was all fairly low-lying stuff, thickets and bushes and that sort of thing. I’ve always intended to add some bigger trees to the set, inspired by the nice trees DM Scotty does in this video… …and Dr. Mathias’ extravagantly … Continue reading In the Jungle, the Mighty Jungle…

BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 7

Posted on February 3rd, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Greenstuff all over the place this time! I’ve started on the heavy leather harness that the troll uses to tow the Blomp along, as well as structural greenstuff to secure and cover the magnets in his base, hold the barrel in the right position, and secure the steel plate the barrel magnetizes to. There’s at … Continue reading BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 7

BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part Six

Posted on January 31st, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Progress, the purpose of the troll revealed, and IT FLIES. Well, sort of! I got most of the structural parts of the base done today, barring more greenstuff putty to solidify everything. The big troll – an old prepainted WotC figure that I’ll be repainting – has a hole drilled between his shoulder blades and … Continue reading BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part Six

Tables From Last Weekend’s Infinity Tournament

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

We had another one-day, three round Infinity tournament this last weekend, our first of 2017. We had two players come over from Vancouver on the ferry to play with us, which was awesome, and while we only had eight players total it was a good event overall. I did the terrain for two of the … Continue reading Tables From Last Weekend’s Infinity Tournament

BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 5

Posted on January 26th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Progress! Greenstuff! An incompletely explained troll! I broke out the greenstuff and went at the gondola this evening. I filled in under all the various discs where piping will come out, and then ran lines of greenstuff across the two spheres of the engine to make it look like it had been roughly welded or … Continue reading BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 5

The Algoryn can now set up a command hub on a hostile planet with the new Drop Fortress from Sarissa Precision. Every planetary drop in a capsule is a risk for the troopers inside, a risk of it going off course, getting damaged or being completely destroyed by hostile fire such is the life of an … Continue reading Algoryn Drop Fortress has Landed

BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 4

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

Good progress on the Blomp gondola this weekend, with all the major structural assembly finished, skinning done in styrene sheet, and the start of the lifting-gas engine and associated pipework. The bow and stern have “masts” (not sure what else to call them, really…) that will eventually have lines connecting to the envelope overhead, with … Continue reading BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 4

BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 3

Posted on January 21st, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Blomping onward, in a classic goblin-engineering “make sh*t up as you go” fashion! The front half of the gondola has been skinned with styrene sheet, cut in one continuous strip for strength. I also glued in more styrene strip on the inner edges of the gunwale. The edges of the flying bridge received similar treatment; … Continue reading BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 3

Progress on my Lead Adventure Forum Build Something 2017 entry, the goblin-crewed Bloodyear Blomp! I’d said previously I was going to finish covering the blimp envelope in fabric before moving on to the gondola, but in standard wargamer fashion I’ve been distracted into working on the gondola first. The basic skeleton of the gondola is … Continue reading Build Something 2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 2

After building my base building from French Model Workshop the other day, I used some spare time to get it painted. A couple of hours playing with the spray cans and washes on Wednesday and an hour or so playing with pigments and some blister foam and here I was !

New modular scenery from French Model Workshop

Posted on January 11th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

The other day I was reading Morikun’s blog and I fell upon a very interesting post about new scenery kits to come.
I have to say it immediately pressed my buttons, I’m still looking for scenery solutions that are modular and easy enough to use and French Model Workshop seem to have come up with some really fancy stuff.

Every year or so over on Lead Adventure Forum they hold a friendly Build Something competition. There’s a theme that imposes some restrictions; one year it was “your scenery must be based on a CD”; we had “marine/watercraft” once, and this year the theme is “flight”. I’ve been a LAF member for years and it’s … Continue reading Build Something 2017: The Bloodyear Blomp

Terrain is everything – ‘Tis the season to pick up your trees

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

A few years ago I picked up a bag of model trees from Dobbies, our local garden centre [and craft shop]. They only have them in the run up to Christmas as they’re for making your own Christmas scene with miniature revellers and holiday nik-naks. I’d noticed other online garden centres stocked them also and as I wasn’t getting to go to Dobbies I did a search and they were 50% off on one store but I was out shopping and decided to buy it when I got home only for the last set to be sold…

I couldn’t stand to have lost out and found them again on sale at Dawson’s Department Store again at just £6.50 with £3.95 postage, so I ordered 2 set just for best value. It says there are more than 10 left in stock and at that price I thought I’d share so everyone can get a chance at a bargain. The set I got was 21 pieces from a company called Lemax. Clearly there’s at least two that are just a bit too big, they’re the same size as my 40k outpost that got bigger! but great line of sight blockers for a Trygon!
Of course they weren’t going to fit with my table so I decided to paint them – undercoating them all in Red Oxide primer and then repainting them in shades of yellow.
And here’s the finished result:
