Continuing with my (re)discovery of the Horus Heresy I spent the weekend adding a bit more flesh to the bones of my 30K collection plans. A few legions have now started to bubble to the top as I’ve been considering and discarding those that don’t appeal to me as much from either …
Progress is relaxed at the moment, just some washes on the Acid Spray. The unfortunate byproduct of taking it slowly is there’s not much to share with you guys, sorry.Ironically I’ll do what I feel is sufficient for the evening and sitll stay up till p…
Po wyschnięciu kleju przeniosłem świece na makietę.
Klej do drewna stracił swoją objętość więc jeszcze dwukrotnie nanosiłem go na świece aż do uzyskania zadowalającego mnie efektu.
Po wyschnieciu kleju pomalowałem wszystko kolorem Ushabti Bone z palety GW.
Następna warstwa farby to jaśniejszy ‘kościany’ z palety Vallejo i w zasadzie malowanie juz zakończone.
Knoty wykonałem za pomocą miedzianego przewodu wewnętrznego, który pozostał po zdjęciu izolacji.
Trochę czarnej farby i gotowe. Mam nadzieję, że podoba wam się efekt końcowy.
As I’m planning to run a Tyrannofex with Acid Spray at Caledonian I thought it worthwhile finishing up this little conversion. With the Tervigon’s birthing sac glued in place the normal feed cannot reach around it’s gravid womb so I needed to extend t…
After two long evenings I have completed circa 50% of the scenery. I had a few extra bits so I decided to create several additions to the original GW design. Right now I have to finish the painting and add some details to the bases. I am aiming to finish all the pieces next week. Have a look at my progress so far.
Some extra candles will be placed on the graves.
Jako jeden z detali przewidziałem świeczki wykonane z izolacji i wikolu.
So there I was, putting together some minis for a client when I came across a common problem: Tiny, tiny feet on a model that needs to be glued directly to the base. Now, I know how to solve this problem and it’s fairly straightforward, hence, a small …
It’s been a while since Adam and I have had time to make another tutorial, but now that the dust is clearing, we’re back! This time providing some insight into OSL. Check it out real official like at the Tabletop Minions YouTube. Enjoy!
Roland, Roland, Roland…keeps those Rolands firing…ROLAND!
For those that recognize that terrible riff on the classic Rawhide theme song….you’re old. Like me 😉
This time we look at the Roland AA (GBX08) kit from Battlefront supporting the West German forces in Team Yankee. These bad boys are a Brigade level support for all the lists and you can get up to 1 Batterie of up to 6 launchers of these guys. Look out Soviet Airpower!
Battlefront continues to rock on these kits. The kits I have for prepared are pre-release versions. This is another old-school resin hull and turret with metal bits. Lots of detail everywhere. I know these are from newer molds/castings, but that only accounts from the cleanness of the models. There appears to be more little “grubbins” molded into the resin and metal than I have seen in older resin kits…this is a common theme so far in the West German kits. It makes be very happy for the future releases.
– Very simple build. Glue the tracks to the hull and the missile launchers and radar to the turret. When you glue the missile launchers make sure the missile pods hang under the launcher.
– You have an option with the side skirts. You can leave them off as in the cover art (and like I did) or you can put them on. You have the POWER!!!!!!

The Shambling Mound from Otherworld Miniatures reminds me an awful lot of something I saw on Dr Who as a child. Ah yes, the “Seeds of Doom” even though it’s origins are in D&D. Scared the beejesus out of me as a child, so when I saw Otherworld’s rather nice …
I had a blast on this project. He may not be perfect but that’s not why I painted him. Orks/Orcs/Orruks will always have a special place in my heart.Gallery ViewThis model was also the subject of an upcoming tutorial video shot with Adam, more to come …
One of the things I’ve been contemplating for a while is improving my To Done pictures. For the most part I’ve been quite happy with my recent pictures, with the Camera 360 shots adding some effects that have made the pictures my best yet. The main issue revolves around my background picture. The Ferron Proxima backdrop has always been a favourite of mine as it puts the model in context – Red Planet BASE! needs a red planet to make sense, it also really stands out in blog feeds 😉 What it doesn’t do is help with colour accuracy and it also fails to meet the GW ‘suggested criteria’ of a plain white background for submitting photographs. For those in the hobby being featured in White Dwarf is a huge achievement and I’d hope to do that eventually, so decided a light box might help that happen. On top of that I’ll be less reliant on daylight [again, discouraged by GW] to get my pictures and they’ll be more consistent. I’ll still throw in the Ferron Proxima background but I’ll be doing these as well
I need to make a proper white backdrop, get some large white paper, vinyl, or even cloth so it can be draped smoothly. I may consider adding in some more reflective material on the lights but for a five minute ‘kitbash’ and £4 worth of light fittings what more can you ask for?
Here’s a view of the set up when I was taking pics of the Imperial Knight, it struggled to be effective on such a large model, if I’m honest.
What does the Fuchs say….
Sorry ’bout that
A hefty little 6 wheeled all terrain troop transport to move those Panzergrenadiers around the battlefield. Yes please! You can find these bad boys in the Panzer Aufklarungs Kompanie list and can you can get 2 zugs of them with 3 Fuchs in each.
On to the models!
This is another very sweet kit. The kits I have for prepared are pre-release versions. This is an old-school resin hull with metal bits. These are chock full of detail and are VERY clean. The metal wheels had just a few metal whiskers and no flash or mold lines.
The fit of the wheels here is a very simple peg on the hull and hole in the wheel, but is very well designed. They are a different style than the Luchs wheels, but fit just as snug.
Build: Since this was a pre-release kit, I didn’t have the instructions that are up on Battlefront now. But that didn’t matter! The kit is super easy; very intuitive…put all the wheels on one side of the hull. Let those dry a little so that they don’t wiggle any more, then do the other side.

These are the ‘cinematic shots’ i.e. the ones with a shedload of filters on to try and make them more interesting. Unlike my pic of the Dark Talon I’m not sure if there’s any improvements but I always need some pics on my phone for various social media…
I had a friend staying for a few days last week so we each painted a Rackham figure from my collection. I chose the Mystic of the Behemoth, a fantastically detailed wiry old orc shaman. I took a few WIP shots of the miniature but I don’t plan on doing a step by step for him. If you have any questions though I’ll be happy to answer them in the comments!
I’d been holding out for the weekend to get my To Done! pics done. I make the fundamental mistake of using natural light and with autumn approaching that’s going to be in short supply. I’ve a plan to fix that though so ‘bear with’.I wasn’t overly impr…
The irony of posting these WiP shots of the gravitic plates underneath the Land Speeders is that the subsequent efforts over the weekend meant I applied the anti-shine varnish on the 28th August, the day of the new Hobby Season! That just goes to show I was dilly-dallying for good reason, any of those days I avoided working on the Speeders could have resulted in a 2015/16 stamp instead of a 2016/17. The fact is it makes no difference either way, borne out by my inability to feel dismayed they weren’t completed last season or happier they’ll ring out the new season in style. The reality is I’m playing the ‘To Done’ images out in my head and that mental celebration is a win regardless of 24 hours hear or there.
With the varnish dry I was not happy with the anti-shine finish, too many brush strokes were visible. This is a recurring issue on the black, particularly flat surfaces where there is no place to hide. So I cranked out the airbrush and tried to be a little more careful than I was with the Nephilim. In fact I think I had to spray on even more varnish but luckily it didn’t go ‘dusty’ [on initial inspection at least]. The second coat did at least manage to even out the varnish and cover the brush marks. All that remains to do is Tamiya Clear Red X-27 the lights, Tamiya Clear Orange X-26 the targeting lenses and then take the To Done pictures and I can get my first Big Purple Stamp of Approval.
Then what…? I guess I’ll have to check the list, I mean it’s what it’s there for afterall!

Guten tag comaraden!
Translation: Hey y’all!
It’s me! SonBae! Live from WWPD-South, bringing to you another in my installment of tips and tricks from models from Battlefront’s Team Yankee game. This time we are going to look at models from the newest faction to enter the Team Yankee fray, the West Germans.
First up is the Luchs (TGBX05). No, not the PzII variant from World War II, although it does bear a closer resemblance to an 8-Rad or Puma. This Luchs is a sleek little all-terrain Armored Car. In Leopard, you can find these bad boys in all of the West German lists. You can get up to 2 Trupps of 2 Luchs each in the Leopard II Panzer Kompanie, Marder Panzergrenadier Kompanie and up to 4 Trupps of 2 Luchs eat in the Panzer Aufklarungs Kompanie. You get some pretty cool rules with it like Spearhead, Scout and thermal that help beef up that 20mm gun.
On to the models!

Finally! We have come to the end of this series. I hope this has been enjoyable and informative for you. We get to wrap this up with a discussion of one of my favorite AAA systems. A radar controlled quad 23mm machine gun!?!?!?!? Battlefront serves up another Soviet system for their Team Yankee version of Flames of War. Now its time to talk about the ZSU 23-4 Shilka AA Platoon boxed set (TSBX05) where I give a little review and share my thoughts and tricks and tips on this model.
Bottomline up front…Yet ANOTHER great resin kit. This is a solid resin and metal kit where the turret and hull are resin and the main gun barrel and tracks are white metal.
I realised the other day that it has been an absolute age since I last did any kind of tutorial, fortunately an opportunity has rather presented itself…
My client has two of these rather handsome totally-not-Hugo Weaving figures and we were debat…
