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.

The Wednesday Gallery

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

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…

This felt a bit like being in a Piranesi drawing.The old iron still supports tons of rail traffic every day.Here are some pictures that I took of an ironwork rail trestle in my hometown of Indianapolis Indiana. I love old ironwork with its graceful yet…

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

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

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

Sunday Round-up

Posted on May 14th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve unsuccessfully tried to shake my dogged pursuers……with a trip to a land apparently inhabited by a variety of anthropomorphic animals…Though unfortunately the Fennec Fox and Frog Fixer from Oathsworn were a bit on the small side to be expecte…

Steam Works Review

Steam Works Review

Picture the scene: you’re at a large convention at a popular UK site and you see through the crowd a man wearing a metallic owl on his shoulder, together in Victorian getup and an extendable spyglass fixed to the side of his head. On the streets, this kind of behaviour would usually result in a swift recapture followed by a series of injections and perhaps a straightjacket. In the safe and womb-like environment of the UK Games Expo however, it’s worthy of perhaps a gently raised eyebrow before being distracted by another miniatures vendor. Unless you’re me of course, where Steampunk holds a particular fascination ever since I donned the light gem and began a career as a thief in the PC game… er… Thief.

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

Small, cute, hard target.

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