AP Cannon Bots

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

One has to like multi use models. These Aberrant Games robots can be used in Rogue Stars and double up for Medium AP armed bots in my Mechanica force for Steam Wars. These have been modified a bit by removing one forearm and mounting the heavy weapon at the elbow. These were provided courtesy of … Continue reading AP Cannon Bots

Don’t sink my battleship!

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

Well, we’re still in Dropfleet Commander territory. A weird side effect of our group all backing the Kickstarter campaign is that it’s allowed for a painting arms race, as we all have a lot of ships to put together at the same time.However, I have some…

And so it begins…Babylon 5:ACTA miniatures

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

I’ve been seriously nerding out over Babylon 5 after my son and I started a marathon series watch at the end of last year. We get in a couple of episodes a week and are pulling up on the middle of season 5 now. If you haven’t heard of it, the…

Sniper Bot

Posted on June 24th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

This old Games Workshop model is going to be used as a Sniper Bot for my Mechanica force. By adding a Spotter Drone, it will make a sniper team for use in Steam Wars.

The Iron Man

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

Being a Marvel fan, I thought I would borrow The Winter Child model from Dust range and paint him up in Iron Man colours for my Mechanica force. I removed the star from his chest and some other unnecessary Soviet iconography. He also has several choices of base, two flying bases and a nearly finished … Continue reading The Iron Man

Repair Drones

I picked up these Crooked Dice drones at Salute a few months ago, which should be good as Repair Drones.

Literally painted silver with grey claws and a red dot, then inked.

Progress continues on the dead lead projects.  Man 40K has really gotten under my skin lately.  This guy has been sitting in my Knights of Eden army box for years.  This is an old metal Dreadnought with a Forge World plasma cannon arm.&n…

Rogue Stars Crew

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

I enjoyed using this Rogue Stars crew, a Golum, a Zoat, a robot, a Zykhee and an alien of some sort. There is still no substitute for good armour in Rogue Stars, once a model takes damage, its effectiveness reduces very quickly. Apart from armour, the Difficult Target ability is the best defensive protection against … Continue reading Rogue Stars Crew

We had a dozen guys out to the club this week, which was a goo turn out. Chatter was about a change in venue in the fall due to a rent increase (new venue TBD).There was couple of games of 28mm sci-fi skirmish (Armageddon?) as well as some Memoir 44.Th…

Nurgle Chaos Space Marine Kill Team

Posted on June 9th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

I painted these guys a few weeks back just after the Shadow War Armageddon game box was released.  This is the first Kill Team I have specifically painted for this game.  I chose Nurgle as it is a mark of chaos I have never modeled for 40K so…

With the pending release of Warhammer 40,000 8th edition and the already released Shadow War Armageddon I have been inspired to paint more of my collection of Space Marine models.I have tried the Space Marine Scouts in SW:A a couple of times and found …

Kas’trum Campaign Pre-season Game one – One of our Ruperts is missing.

Mechanica Automotans

Posted on May 27th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Over the last few weeks I have built and painted up twenty more Automotan infantry. That makes a total of lots, with still some more to do. Some of the models will be made as specific crew for some heavy weapons, I think I have four more that can be made without weapons, so can … Continue reading Mechanica Automotans

Cornelius For Rogue Stars

Posted on May 24th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Yet another spare Karman model, in this case Cornelius, allowed me to convert another for use in Rogue Stars.

I have not worked out a profile for this chap yet, but I reckon he will work out as a lot of points.

Hot on the heels of the planning discussions with my sons, I placed a couple of orders for some more Infinity goodness.  The first of those packages arrived a week or so ago, and here are the contents:
