Hab Module LV4-26, Part One

Posted on November 27th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

This shop front/apartment facade for my ongoing Infinity space station project has been inspired mostly by the depiction of some of the habitat levels of Ceres in the TV show The Expanse. If you haven’t watched The Expanse I highly recommend it, it’s good quality TV (not something I say regularly!) that depicts a hard … Continue reading Hab Module LV4-26, Part One

More Space Station Pieces

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

One of the big wall modules I built for my Infinity space station tabletop set has a door three inches off the ground, intended to connect to catwalks or other elevated terrain. The problem with it has been that I have no catwalks or other elevated terrain, so most of the time that door just … Continue reading More Space Station Pieces

Adding Detail To The Space Station

Posted on November 11th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

I’ve been using my big space station walls and the associated scatter terrain for over a year now, and while all the wall modules are fully painted and physically finished (doors and such) I’ve never considered that part of the project “finished” in the full sense of the word. I really wanted that full colour, … Continue reading Adding Detail To The Space Station

Tabletop Hex Terrain Toolkit Kickstarter – a closer look

Posted on November 9th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

During last week’s Kickstarter round-up, one of the projects I highlighted was the Tabletop Hex Terrain Toolkit by Ross Kearns. This is a laser-cut toolkit for making hex terrain. I’ve been very interested in terrain making ever since we started making our own a couple of years ago, and hex terrain has always been of interest since I started playing Commands & Colors many years before that. This Kickstarter project looks to combine everything to give the everyday terrain-maker a tool kit that is relatively easy to use. The hexes created by this at 100mm wide, corner-to-corner, which works out at about 3.5″ flat-to-flat, which is an ideal size for creating a Commands & Colors board. Would this work out more cost effective than simply buying Hexon Terrain? Probably only if you made more than a single board, to be honest I’ve backed this project, as I really like the idea of creating this type of interlocking terrain system. I’m not really sure of how practical (or labour intensive) it will be in the long term, or whether this is better that simply buying terrain mats and using them over underlying features to create a rolling landscape. Pledge levels range from £8 for […]

Kickstarter Round-Up – 6th November 2016

Posted on November 6th, 2016 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

It seems that a HUGE number of Kickstarter projects have launched in the last week or so. Here are the ones that have caught my eye: Miniatures Heir’s Cousin Riders Spanish company Davale Miniatures are looking to produce 28mm resin miniatures – ‘Riders of the North’. Interestingly, they are looking to only produce figures that will be exclusive to Kickstarter backers, and will not be available after the campaign. Hmm, interesting. They are currently just over 20% of the way towards their 5,000 EUR funding target, with the project running until 1st December. Delivery is scheduled for April 2017. Miniature Wargames Flytrap Factory Presents ‘Caveman Vs Wild: The Big Chill’ OK, this is probably one of my favourite miniatures game Kickstarters of recent months. New Zealand company Flytrap Factory, who are probably best known for the 15mm figure packs they produce for Skirmish Sangin scenarios, have launched a project for a new range of 28mm figures, entitled Caveman vs Wild. This is a pre-historic hunting adventure survival game, with cartoon design seemingly inspired by films such as ‘Ice Age’. In short, this is lovely. The project has hit about 75% of its $6,000 NZD funding target, and is running until the […]

Kickstarter Round-Up – 28th October 2016

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

A short week, since I only posted the last one on Tuesday, but here is the next, relatively small, selection of Kickstarter projects that have caught my eye in the last few days: Miniatures Space Raiders 3 : The Chaos Raiders!! Giving off a very 1980’s Chaos vibe, this miniature range is the 3rd Kickstarter project from Diego Pinilla. In has currently raised 2177 EUR of a 4000EUR funding goal, and is running until 11th November 2016, with delivery due in January 2017. Terrain TileScape DUNGEONS The fabulously-named Rocket Pig Games are running a project to produce 3D Print files for Dungeons, caverns, sewers and all sorts of the stuff. They have smashed their modest $300 funding goal, having currently had over $11,000 pledged. The project is running until 29th November, and is due for delivery between January and June 2017. Boardgames The Edge: Dawnfall Dawnfall is a new miniatures boardgame from Awaken Realms, who previously made Neuroshima Hex. You can buy individual factions, Conflict Boxes (2 factions) or a Warchest, which contains 6 factions for the game. The project has already hit 450% of its £40,000 funding target, and is running until 14th November 2016. Delivery is due in […]

Infinity Grimdark – completing the lot

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

Our focus for today is on a last addition to the scenery lot. That is another reinforced building with watchtower on top. It makes a great outpost and reminds me slightly at the command bunker(?) from the Warhammer 40k Rulebook of 3rd Edition. I think the scenario linked to it was called the farm or […]

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

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

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 […]
