"You’ll not see nothing like the mighty Djin"

While I hadn’t planned a God in the VSF Turkish army, my reading on Turkish myth and legend (always a good place to start) had left me with the idea for a daemon a Djin.When an advertisement for the Reaper Bones ‘Shadow Daemon’ popped up on Facebook I …

VSF Turkish cyclist riders

A little more fanciful imagining (with some help from Andy) has produced these cyclists which will make their debut as riders in the Turkish VSF army.I felt that the British VSF, which might still be stuck in the days of the horse given the dominance o…

Carpets, anyone? Turkish flyers …

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

Something of a cliche, perhaps, but irresistible all the same, are these flyers for the Turkish VSF army…. flying carpets.The ‘carpets’ were made by gluing 2 layers of 40gsm card together, and coating heavily with PVA glue. They were then painted wit…

Mantic Tunneler

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

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

A deep dig into the good old fashioned spares box produced this creation – an airboat for the Turkish VSF army. There always seems to be an issue with 3 pointers in army composition (a function of the maths of factors, I guess). So in total there …

Turkish artillery for HotT

These two artillery bases for the VSF Turkish army were one of those ‘quick wins’ in painting terms.The guns and figures come from the Strelets 20mm Turkish Artillery 1877 set. They are standard artillery and offer two 3 point elements.And the Turkish …

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

Warcradle Studios obtain Spartan Games IP from Rebel Publishing

Posted on September 30th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Just in case you missed the announcement earlier this week, Warcradle Studios – the creative studio of Wayland Games, who are currently known for their game Wild West Exodus, have acquired the Spartan Games IP for Dystopian Wars, the Firestorm Universe (both Armada and Planetfall) and Uncharted Seas from Rebel Publishing, following their recent collapse. In a move that can only be applauded, Warcardle almost immediately issued a video explaining the situation, what they had bought and what they were not liable for, as there are obvious issues surrounding goods owned to kickstarter backers etc. Whilst it’s very sad to see the demise of Rebel Publishing, the fact that these game IPs are likely to survive is very good news for those gamers who have invested into them over the years. We look forward to seeing the direction that Warcradle take these games in future months.Filed under: Hobby News Tagged: Fantasy Gaming, Sci-Fi Gaming, Steampunk
