Meridian Gunbots

Posted on February 20th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

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

The completed Turkish VSF army

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

So here it is – the completed Turkish Victorian Science Fiction army. This is 72 army points in HotT (Hordes of the Things) terms. It’s been a great journey over the past few months, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the process, and the output. I’m looking forw…

Turkish stronghold unveiled

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

The final step to complete this Big Battle HotT army .. the stronghold. I wanted something that reflected the minaret look, yet was small enough for the gaming table. I had two more of the old curtain rail ends, and had an idea of what I might do… mi…

The torture that is the Analogue Challenge Bonus rounds continues, and again I had a real struggle to find something suitable for this weeks category. The only model I initially found in my lead mountain was a lovely sculpt from Colonel Bills Belt Fed …

Turkish VSF behemoth

Posted on January 13th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

From the beginning of my planning of the Turkish VSF army, I had a behemoth in mind. I was inspired by some of the images of vehicles produced for the Dystopian Wars range by Spartan Games. For 20+ years I’ve had several turned wooden en…

The Wednesday Gallery

Posted on January 3rd, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

I have Wednesdays off from unboxings, reviews, miniatures and RPG articles and instead indulge my love of Steampunk, Dieselpunk, Cyberpunk, Gothic and Cosplay…though not all at once of course…This means that Wednesdays article will be a gallery fea…

Turkish Paladin

Posted on January 2nd, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

I thought the Turkish army could do with a Paladin. This is not a troop type I have in any other HotT army, but it seemed to fit with the idea of the hero, and the cleric. Not so much magic, but certainly devout. The figure can be used as a hero if I o…

Turkish dragon sighted …

Posted on January 1st, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

The Turkish army of the fanciful Victorian Science Fiction era is a rapidly modernising force, with generals prepared to try new technologies if these offer them an edge over their sworn enemies. So now this new flying machine.Based (rather obviously) …

Sunday Round-Up

Finally after months of planning I’ve managed to escape from my extra-dimensional prison and can once again continue with my plan for world domination with the recruitment of more allies from the other side of the breach in Malifaux…and then some oth…

A minor setback for Sommerville

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

There was a renewed sense of confidence in the camp. The wine had flowed freely in the mess as the officers of the Eastern Task Force relived the glorious moments of the day’s battle.”Winstanley, old chap. Glorious, glorious, glorious” and Lord Cheltin…

Sommerville’s redemption

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

Brigadier Sommerville drew a red sleeve across his brow, catching several droplets of sweat as they were about to fall. Twice in 5 days he had suffered at the hands of the Turkomen, all thankfully now withdrawn back across their borders awaiting, well …

More bad news – it’s not Caruthers’ day, really

Posted on December 26th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

For Brigadier Sommerville life had been one case of bad luck after another. Thank goodness for the inheritance, otherwise he’d have been the oldest Captain in the regiment. Still, with family money, and the sponsorship of the highly esteemed Major Gene…

Bad news for Caruthers

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

The smell of wood smoke drifted across the camp. The clink of harness and equipment sang like a harmony to the hum of men’s voices. For Major General Sir Chelmswood Reginald Augustus Piers Caruthers this certainly was the life. The campaigning life fed…

Turkish Horse …. bringing the old to the new

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

I have developed a clear view of the world and nation I am trying to reflect with the VSF Turkish army. It will be a prime opponent of the British VSF army, yet I want it to look, feel, and work in terms of ‘game play’, differently from the British. Th…

Caruthers bemoans lack of pink gin

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

There was a cool edge to the morning breeze that swept across the plain. The winter rains had greened the normally parched landscape with a flush of new growth that would soon be snatched away as the spring heat grew towards summer.Major General Caruth…

Turkish VSF lancers

Expanding the range of troop types in a HotT (Hordes of the Things) fantasy army while being true to one’s mental model of what that fantasy army should be is a fascinating exercise.My perception of the British VSF army, for example, had the horse reig…

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…
