Steam Wars Martians

Posted on April 25th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Mr Steinberg and I had an excellent game of Steam Wars recently, it was the first outing for his Martians. It seemed appropriate that I field a force of British Empire infantry to repel the incursion. The majority of the British infantry used in this mission were basic troopers with a few heavy infantry thrown … Continue reading Steam Wars Martians

More Beef

Posted on March 25th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

I have had these two Ogryns knocking around for far too long waiting for some paint. Now they are finished, I can field two units of three beefy Ogryns in my Steam Wars Prussian army. They may even get used in a 40K Inquisition force… Advertisements

Sky Hussars

I did actually finish these off last weekend during the snowy weekend but I have only just had chance to take a photo of them. I shortened the smoke plume so the models would fit onto a 25mm base and not have to use a large 40mm base. The flame effect is a bit stripey, … Continue reading Sky Hussars

Snow Day

When it is like this, there is nowt to do but paint… These are the last of my British infantry, at least I hope they are the last and there are no more lurking in the Loft Full Of Lead. Advertisements

Meridian Gunbots

Finished my Meridian Miniatures Gunbots, decided on green, simple really. There is another Steam Wars game coming up so I will have to profile these little chaps up for the British army. I suspect they will be having a small confrontation with the Martians…allegedly. Advertisements

Mantic Tunneler

This is the Mantic Veer Myn Tunneler I received a short time back from the 2015 Kickstarter, don’t get me started… Anyway, I will be using this as a Steam Wars Mechanica Tunneler, primarily as a troop transport. There was the opportunity to make the nose removable so weapons could be added. I added a … Continue reading Mantic Tunneler

Roboplane Painting

Posted on November 6th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

The Roboplanes for the Steam Wars Mechanica army have been hanging around half painted for quite a few weeks. It could do with some weathering, but that is a painting skill I have not quite mastered, especially on flat surfaces. Fortunately, the cockpit detail is still reasonably visible, although the control stick is not painted … Continue reading Roboplane Painting

New Toy!

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

I finally have the new Mantic Tunneler from their Kickstarter which ended exactly two years ago. It is quite a nice looking kit and appears to snap together but there are no instructions. There seem to be some optional parts in the kit, I really can’t remember what I was expecting anyway or what the … Continue reading New Toy!

Siege Crawler

Posted on October 15th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

At the Colours show a few weeks ago, Simple Miniatures were doing a ridiculous deal for a few Privateer Press models, so I could not resist and bought this large siege crawler for £17.50. When it was released a while back, I really liked the model and thought it would be really cool to use … Continue reading Siege Crawler
