Posted on October 24th, 2016 under . Posted by

A while back I managed to get hold of some of the plastic mantic pipework that was part of the deadzone 2nd edition kickstarter.This has been sitting a box for a while as most of my kickstarter stuff does, and had a “good idea” to use the pipework for …

Infinity GrimDark – City Lights and more

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

Today just a short addition to the cityscape terrain – street lights because – why not. That aside the remaining doors for all the buildings. I’ve decided to put them on display, creating a big marketplace… just for fun. Guarded by some Enforcers… No one would be stupid enough to enter this are without permission, or […]

Weathering heights – How to clean your palette with mud

Posted on October 16th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

Like often, I’ve engaged myself in a stupidly vast amount of projects at once… The good thing is that I’ll be able to show you plenty of cool stuff at some point and that things get done. The bad thing being it takes some guts every now and then to get started given the amount on the table. But hey, this is not me whining or anything, just explaining why I needed a little break.
One of my favourite ways of avoiding hobby burn outs is to actually paint. I mean paint something I don’t care much about and that can potentially provide rapid and high return on investment.
So here we are.

Review: Armies on Parade 2016 – video

Posted on October 16th, 2016 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Armies on Parade 2016 in Warsaw Poland – watch the video below from the event that took place on the 15th October.
The first place went to the Empire Castle "Tear for shadows past". It was a great and very harmonious display, although the bases didn’t fit.
Dark Eldar took the second place with equally large diorama. I was quite surprised with the colours of the miniatures – I’m not a fan of

Infinity GrimDark – more Habitat units

Posted on October 7th, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Time for more additions to the gaming table. One further skywalk and a small two cube apartment will enhance and enrich life in the Deadzone😛 The two cube buildings are especially important to fill gaps on a Deadzone mat, to create a dense cityscape with short fire lanes to give some bonus to Plague forces.

Rubbish…utter rubbish!

Hoi,Today I’ll be putting up a few pictures of some of my modern scatter terrain. Most pieces are from the TTCombat resin scenery line. These are little gems even if they do suffer from some flash. The flames in the oil drum are rubbish, I know, but we…

Hoi,Well Hugo is settling in fine and since he’s rather quick falling asleep in the evening I get a little downtime then. So here’s the promised post about the MDF buildings I am currently working on. I basically have two projects: one is a Dark Age pr…

Terrain Corner

Posted on September 26th, 2016 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The big thing about wargaming is its a huge hobby.  Its not just spending time painting the amazing armies that we use, its also the field of battle we choose to fight on. I have to say I actually find painting the terrain to be a lot more fun that the miniatures.  I think its … Continue reading Terrain Corner

Infinity GrimDark – Walkways, Sensors and Crates

Posted on September 23rd, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Time for some details and the important walkway sections. A first walkway and some of the Crate wall sections create some decent cover for infantry and nice scenery for more merchant/ trading themed tables. Some Sensors will be objectives for Infinity and the lower wall section provides, even more, cover and adds some suburban favour […]

Sunday Colour #16

For a little change this week I have assembled and painted some scenery.  I’ve never really owned any to call mine before because I’m lucky enough to be a member of a very good club that provides a great deal.  But just in case I want to play a few small games at home and in … Continue reading Sunday Colour #16

Infinity GrimDark – Habitation Unit Two

Posted on September 16th, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Today it’s time for the second Hab and therefore half way through the scenery set. Not much to add in terms of functionality or storyline… unless that taking pics of the scenery lot is, unfortunately, the only reason to get my Deadzone collection out of the shelves in the past 12 months. Let’s see if […]

Kickstarter Round-Up – 16th September 2016

Posted on September 16th, 2016 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

A bumper week for new Kickstarter projects this week, so much so that I’ve had to spli them down into sub-categories for this week! Miniatures Kev White does Matt Dixon Hasslefree Miniatures have a KS project, which is funding a new project – Kev White is sculpting miniatures based upon the fantasy artwork of Matt Dixon, who has produced a series of female ‘pin-up’ illustrations. Each picture will inspire three different miniatures – the first based on the artwork, the second being a ‘skyclad’ version of the miniature, and the third being dressed in garb suitable for winter (and thus a certain Frost-based skirmish game?) Funding for this has gone mad, having currently exceeded it’s £4,000 funding goal by over 900%, and it still has 16 days to run! It finishes on October 2nd 2016. Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes: Axe & Brimstone Axe and Brimstone is new expansion for Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes. The project is funding a new campaign book for these rules, plus two new warbands – Possessed Dwarfs and Halflings. Certain pledges also include a 3′ x 3′ terrain mat. The project is over 100% funded, and is due to finish on the 11th […]

Deep Cut Studio release ‘Medieval Football’ mats

Posted on September 14th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

Deep Cut Studio, those terrain mat makers from Lithuania, have been at it again, and have just released a new set of products for all those fans of ‘Medieval Football’…aka Guildball They have released no less than nine different pitches, which is perhaps a bit overkill, but it gives the player plenty of options.   The full list of pitches are: Cobblestone Prairie Plains Muddy Field Frost-Grave Grass Cobblestone Streets Swamp Medieval Ruins Whilst you can instantly see the use of many – all the different types of grass, for example, some of the other choices, such as Medieval Ruins or Cobblestones are a bit more…interesting. And of course, after a hard days pillaging and throwing of spells, there is nothing the average Frostgrave warband likes better than a bit of footie (I suppose, given the size of the mat, this one could always function both as a Frost Grave mat, and then as a pitch…) The mats are 3′ x 3′, and come in three different materials: PVC – £22.90 Cloth – £25.90 Mousemat – £31.90 P&P costs are around £10, but you can order multiple mats for a single postage cost. I think some of these are more […]

Just a quick post to show off this excellent Japanese shrine by Lost Village Terrain. This excellent piece of scenery will look great on any Bushido table. My only warning is that it requires a fair bit of pre-painting and … Continue reading

Kickstarter Round-Up – 2nd September 2016

Posted on September 2nd, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Every week sees new Kickstarter projects launched aimed at wargamers. Here are the one that have caught my eye True Tiles Dungeon tiles for your 3D- Printer (see above) – this is the second KS for this product, which is launching some new models for you to try (as well as making the first set of files available again). This is actually for the STL files for you to print yourself, so Mr Whitaker will be pleased! It’s due to fund on the 18th September, and has already smashed its funding goal into tiny pieces… Mounted Renaissance Knights Steel Fist Miniatures are looking to fund three new sets of 16th Century heavily armoured knights, with the idea that each set will have lots of variables so that many different figures can be made from the same base models. The project runs until the 29th September, and is 65% funded at time of writing. Hidden Forest 2D terrain Printed 2D terrain seems to be becoming more and more popular. Hidden Forest are looking to produce sets of 2D terrain printed on neoprene to complement their terrain mats (though obviously they will be suitable for use with any other mat!) This project is […]

Infinity GrimDark – Reinforced City Building

Posted on September 2nd, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

One more addition to the city/colony: A reinforced one story city building. I’ve used some of the reinforced bits intended for a bastion (according to Mantic games) to create this Hab unit. I like the way the reinforcements block line of sights and allow units to advance in cover. Especially for infinity that will be […]

Goodbye Bendyboards, hello The Terrain Shed

Posted on September 2nd, 2016 under , . Posted by

You may remember, back in Podcast episode 170 we interviewed the guys from Bendyboards about their MDF terrain (which all looked very nice). During the interview, we discovered that the company no longer produced their signature product. Well, the company has just re-launched as The Terrain Shed. Same great scenery, brand new name.Filed under: Accessories & Terrain Tagged: Scenery

Are Cigar Box Battles UK rock music fans?

Posted on September 1st, 2016 under , . Posted by

One of the constant dangers of taking photos of wargaming tables is the dreaded “wargamer’s crotch” – where the background of a picture is spoiled due to the proximity of a player’s lower body…because wargames tables always seem to be at that height, don’t they? Games that have backdrops always look great – though admittedly these are great as long as they don’t actually get in the way of playing the game. Most of those you see have been painted by some artistically inclined wargamer, but what about those of use who can’t paint for toffee? (At least, not unless it’s a miniature…) Well, Cigar Box Battles have just released two new mats which are aimed to be used as backdrops for your games. The first is their Bright Blue Sky mat, suitable for just about anything. The second is a Blood Red Sky mat, which is probably far more suitable for sci-fi and fantasy games. Both mats should give a great background to your game table photos. They are priced at $55, which might seem a lot of money to part with, just to get some pretty pictures, but what price art, eh? It’s a great idea – especially […]

Deep Cut Studio – New Prairie Mat released

Posted on September 1st, 2016 under , . Posted by

Deep Cut Studio certainly seem to have the bit between their teeth and are producing new mats on a swift and regular basis. The latest is a Prairie theme, bringing a sun-baked grass look to the gaming table. Ideal for plains wars, or perhaps arid grasslands. The mats come in three types: PVC, cloth and mousepad, with standard sizes from 3′ x 3′ – 6′ x 4′. Prices range from £22.90 to £54.90, plus postage.    Filed under: Accessories & Terrain Tagged: Scenery

Crashed Shuttle, Part One

Posted on August 28th, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Doing a bit of cleaning up in my boxes of wargaming supplies I rediscovered a shuttle I built at least ten years ago. It was nominally for 15mm science fiction gaming, but was built without visible windows or any other really obvious scale indicators, and it’s big enough to look like a small craft in … Continue reading Crashed Shuttle, Part One
