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

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

Steam Wars Game

Posted on June 19th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

We had a game with what should be the final final version of the Steam Wars rules. It has only taken eighteen months to get to this stage, which is not bad for a part time project I guess. I got to use my new TT Combat crane and a new warehouse in a factory … Continue reading Steam Wars Game

Repair Drones

Posted on June 17th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

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.

Ancestral Zeppelins

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

I do like these Titan Forge Ancestral Zeppelins. I have only had the opportunity to use one in games so far. At some stage, when the Teutonic Knights get their second (and third?) unit of Luftlancers, I will get the opportunity to field two or even three. Mr Steinbergs US Navy will also be getting … Continue reading Ancestral Zeppelins

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

Exciting Signs

Posted on May 19th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Hardly the most exciting update, but I have finished some markers to be used to mark the possible position of a tunneling machine.

King Buggy Slow Progress

Posted on May 16th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Things have been a bit slow with my King Buggy conversions as I had to find some larger magnets to fix inside the wing section. I have now rebuilt the wings and am pretty much ready to rebuild the fuselage and undercoat them. I may paint the inside of the cockpit before I glue the … Continue reading King Buggy Slow Progress

Mechanica Shock Gun

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

I like the way this has turned out, it will look great in the Steampunk Mechanica force crewed by a couple of Automotans.

The colour scheme matches the rest of the army quite nicely.

Mechanica Gun Drones

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

After an ink wash, these are ready for action.

I have had to write a new rule into Steam Wars for these contraptions, an infantry Skimmer rule to allow them to cross obstacles without penalty. Which also leads me to believe that I need an Agile rule f…

Gun Drones

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

Privateer Press obviously do a huge range of models, many of which are suitable to use in a more steampunk setting. These gun drones are yet more additions to my robotic Steam Wars army.

Roller Blades

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

These are made by Tor Gaming for the Relics game, but I have hijacked them to use in my Robotic Steam Wars army. Six in a pack was perfect and they don’t take much to paint up.

B4-P0 & AR-Two

Posted on April 25th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

The R2-D2 model came off a McDondald’s Fatty Meal toy. Can’t remember who made the humanoid robot, it has been kicking around for years, I think it may be a Rackham model. I have a few uses for these models, mainly for my robotic Steam Wars army, but also for use in Rogue Stars. These … Continue reading B4-P0 & AR-Two

WALL-E

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

Small, cute, hard target.

A couple of colours and then an ink wash. Done.

Arkanaut Frigate

Posted on April 19th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

This is the first GW model I have seen in ages that I could be persuaded to purchase, especially with my steampunk fixation still running high. I say “could”, as at £50 (US$80) it is a significant amount of cash. It should be available with 10% off from an independent reseller, which would make it … Continue reading Arkanaut Frigate

Mechanica Artillery

Posted on April 8th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

I have no idea what the weapon profile will be yet for this piece, but it does look quite good. Based on a Titan Forge Metal Beards bolt thrower model, I have just reversed the arms and covered up the bolt.
