So, we tried out On The Seven Seas last night for the first time. It was disappointing. It is a game that I do not think we will be returning to. The basic concept of Greed versus Fear sounded quite good, the side with the higher Greed value goes first and if a crews Fear … Continue reading On The Seven Seas →

A good friend at Aberrant Games very nicely let me have a few Rezolution CSO robot models for my Steam Wars Mechanica force. These are CSO Hammerer MIU (Mechanized Infantry Units) models which I will be using as medium support of the Mechanica infantry. I did a bit of trimming of one arm and attached … Continue reading Aberrant Hammerer →
Finally got to have a couple of pirate games, the first of which was with the Cutlass rules. My first outing was with a Royal Navy crew, mostly armed with muskets and bayonets, but the second game was with a motley crew of swashbuckling rum swilling pirates. A Royal Navy crew is all well and … Continue reading Cutlass Games →
A few weeks ago, I started to put together my Reaper Bones Clockwork Dragon. I had to do some boiling water reshaping of the legs to get them all level, but I am getting quite good at that with plastic models. I was not happy with the position of the wings as they stuck straight … Continue reading Clockwork Dragon Wings →
The weather on Saturday was fine undercoating weather. I also had to chop down some trees and get rid of the waste, but in between hacking sessions, I was able to apply spray paint to plenty of robot infantry and get started on the mdf Aeroneff landing…
The weather seems to have picked up and I may just get a chance to undercoat models this weekend. Today my car was telling me it was 16 degrees Celsius. Considering how cold it has been recently, that is positively tropical. I have been busy making sure everything is ready for an undercoating marathon, figures, … Continue reading If I’m Lucky… →
I had been doing a good job of keeping away from Kickstarters until a friend sent me a link this morning for one ending in a few hours… This is a West Wind Kickstarter for some great Weird War II Mechs and I can’t resist a good Mech, or three. I like the West Wind … Continue reading Panzer Mech Kickstarter →
I don’t like undercoating models when it is cold or raining, the moisture in the air can sometimes react with the spray paint and make the surface very rough. I had this experience once with a very nice resin vehicle and really never want to repeat it. So here I am with a growing pile … Continue reading What About The Weather? →
One of the models I picked up on my visit to the USA last year was a Reaper Bones Clockwork Dragon. I had spotted online that a few people had added extra cogs which looked rather cool. So not wanting to let a good idea go uncopied, I decided to unashamedly rip it off. The … Continue reading Reaper Clockwork Dragon →
I received this Titan Forge Metal Beards bolt thrower as part of a Kickstarter ages ago. It was part of their huge Dwarf army range that included the Ancestral Zeppelins that I painted up for my Prussian Scrunts. I decided I did not want to use it in a fantasy army so thought a steampunk … Continue reading Heavy Weapon Conversion →
I wanted more objectives for my Steam Wars games but these things will also work for Rogue Stars and any other sci-fi game as well. The first lot were actually sold as custom sci-fi bases, but I thought they were so good that they would work as markers in their own right. The last two … Continue reading Objectives And Stuff →
Another purchase for the Steampunk Mechanica army were some Privateer Press gun robots. These are for one of the newer funny named factions I can never remember, but there are some nice models in the range that I can be tempted with. I think there are meant to be some clear plastic flying supports in … Continue reading Mechanica Gun Drones →
Hardly worth getting excited over, but while painting some figures recently, I finished some more treasure chests for a soon to be played game of Cutlass. There can never be enough treasure!
Even less exciting are some mdf crates that came with some T…
Using my really old Space Hulk corridors, we set up a game of Rogue Stars Hulk to explore with a couple of plucky bands of adventurers. As one might expect, in the act of exploring rooms, we uncovered more than a few hostile Genestealers. The old Space Hulk floorplans have not been out of their … Continue reading Rogue Stars Hulk →
From what I read around the internet, Lara is the best of the Dust Axis characters available and it is pretty easy to see why. Plenty of wound soakage and even more machine guns to add to a unit of Panzers. She is also the only type 3 armoured human available for the Axis, Markus … Continue reading Dust Axis Lara →
My second unit of Dust Axis heavy infantry are these Faceless Death armed with their heavy lasers.
These should be good at taking down heavy targets, at least I hope they are, the other painted heavy unit is armed with machine guns for taking care of …
The first of my Dust Axis heavy infantry are finished, The Panzers. I have played against this unit plenty of times and know all too well how tough they are. I like the way these models have great big double machine guns and…a knife. They are in the usual boring Axis grey with a few … Continue reading Dust Axis Panzers →
So far I have used bits of paper to mark where a tunneling model may be in games of Steam Wars. I wanted to make something a bit more interesting so made some sign posts using bits of sprue and plastic card.
The nose guns for my two King Buggy conversions have been glued in place and reinforced with some extra plastic. I am going to fit some magnets in the wings to allow various weapons to be slung underneath. I will have to do some trimming on the missile racks as they are a bit long … Continue reading King Buggy Weapons →
Over the weekend, I concentrated on making some headway with the cockpit for the Mechanica King Buggy aircraft, which will need a better name… With no real plan, I just added bits of plastic until I looked finished. Using Lego as the cockpit base was definitely the way to go, nice right angles and ready … Continue reading King Buggy Cockpit →
