Sunday Round-Up

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

Having left the realms of the samurai behind and as we were moving into the far less welcoming sounding ‘Cannibal Sector’ I decided some guards with heavier weaponry might be handy……so we moved on into SLA Industries ‘Cannibal Sector’ where we met …

As usual I have Wednesdays off from actual wargaming miniatures features and instead post a feature related to one of my other visual interests. This is usually Steampunk, Gothic or Cosplay related but occasionally drifts into a related field.This week…

Sunday Round-up

Decided to look for some more traditional allies on this occasion so only took bodyguards with me that I thought might blend in……and so with completely practically defended security I attempted to recruit some Samurai and their retainers who were u…

The Mad Professor

Posted on July 2nd, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

I am not planning to have many living models in the Steam Wars Mechanica army, just a few unscruplous types who ultimately control the automotans for their own nefarious objectives. One of the models I really like was a professor type model from the Dystopian Legons range along with his Igor style man-servant carrying a … Continue reading The Mad Professor

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

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.

Sunday Round-Up

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

As I’d temporarily exhausted the possibilities of potential recruits in Malifaux it seemed like the ideal time to widen my search to other areas… …and so I decided to see what was happening along the Devils Run where I bumped into the Road Rea…

Hoi,Just a really small post to prove I am still at it. Together with the Chinese figures from last post, I painted up some London policemen on bicycles, also from Foundry.There’s two more civilian bicycle riding figures in the cue, but other stuff has…

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
