What’s On The Table?

Posted on June 15th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

It is big, grey and getting painted. I have started with the upper hull and the engines, I wanted to do a multi grey pattern like the Enterprise D, well a bit like it anyway. Advertisements

Whats On The Table?

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

When I need a break from painting the rather large transport, I am returning to the excellent Westwind Mechs. I am still deciding what colours to go for, one will likely be for my British Steampunk force so may be a patriotic red, white and blue. The other may get done in grey. Advertisements

Gunbots

Posted on May 27th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Although they had an outing recently, here are my finished Meridian Miniatures Gunbots, decided on green, simple really. I like these little guys, they fit in with my British Army nicely, a basic robot design, not as advanced as certain other robots I have used in the Mechanica for example. Advertisements

Grey and Gray

Posted on May 24th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

I will be painting most of the upper hull of the GR-75 Transporter a few colours, grey and gray. Well I actually have about four versions of grey and plan to paint all the panels in different greys. I have started on the nose section, so if it goes wrong, I can just respray that … Continue reading Grey and Gray

HARDWIRED

A little side project I’m working on. A cooperative game where players are jacked up Agents sent on corporate black ops. Guess who played way too much Syndicate back in the day… ***     An All-Nighter   Someone tipped off Han Chou Telemetrics.   04:17 in the Shunyi District, HCT Corporate Zone, you and … Continue reading “HARDWIRED”

Finally Off The Table

Posted on May 16th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

So after the block painting comes the ink. I may yet go back and fill in the skull eye sockets with black paint, but basically it is finished. This is a great sculpt, maybe a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I really like the quality of Wargame Exclusive models. I must order some … Continue reading Finally Off The Table

Whats Still On The Table?

Posted on May 15th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

By the time I had finished slapping paint onto the resin Inquisitors car, it was a lot less black and grey than I thought it was going to be. Needs inking. Advertisements

Whats On The Table?

This resin Inquisitor Car from Wargame Exclusive is a great looking model, another I have been delaying in painting. Being of a Batmobile type design, I thought I would paint it black, but black is such a hard colour to do. So I decided on dark Panzer Grey instead…which is nearly black… Advertisements

40K Battle

Posted on May 11th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

A few weeks ago, we had a game of 40K, my Grey Knights against Mr Steinbergs close combat Chaos Nurgle horde. We played one of the missions, with the Grey Knights defending a settlement. This was not an ideal mission for a small elite force as they could not maneuver much and use their strengths, … Continue reading 40K Battle

Undercoating Nerves

Posted on May 9th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

We have had some fantastic weather here in the UK over the May Bank Holiday, this provided the long awaited opportunity to undercoat the rather large GR-75 transport ship conversion. I have had a grainy undercoating experience in the past when it may have been too damp or cold spray paint. There were no excuses … Continue reading Undercoating Nerves

Final Touches

Posted on May 8th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

After a long cold and damp winter, a window of opportunity to undercoat the beast was approaching. I still had a couple of last gasp decisions to make, I had been undecided on which sort of vertical thrust engine nozzles to use. In the end I went for the large type. I also added a … Continue reading Final Touches

Steam Wars Martians

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

Mr Steinberg and I had an excellent game of Steam Wars recently, it was the first outing for his Martians. It seemed appropriate that I field a force of British Empire infantry to repel the incursion. The majority of the British infantry used in this mission were basic troopers with a few heavy infantry thrown … Continue reading Steam Wars Martians

Finished Ruins

Posted on April 17th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Using the drawing of the first house I created, I turned it into some ruins. These actually take quite a long time to amend, it may even be quicker to start from scratch, depending on how much of the original building is being retained. These look good, I have created four sections in total and … Continue reading Finished Ruins

Salute 2018

Posted on April 15th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Yesterday was Salute at the Excel in London, the biggest UK wargames show of the year. Once again we headed down, this year there really was not much I was intending to buy. But then again I always say that… As it is the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War, there were … Continue reading Salute 2018

ZONA ALFA Crew

Posted on April 9th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Other Pat is currently running a one-of DnD dungeon crawl for our weekly game night, so the next couple weeks won’t feature many table top photo ops. In the meantime, I managed to get some color on the first of the ZONA ALFA demo figs. A Military crew with a Guide, a Medic, and a … Continue reading “ZONA ALFA Crew”

Industrial Tower MK2

Posted on April 6th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

The first version of my Industrial Tower was okay to look at, but was very difficult to put together. The MK2 is much easier to build and has way fewer pieces. It still needs some tweaking, in particular, the tread plate pattern looks great but takes ages to cut. I have made several alternative tread … Continue reading Industrial Tower MK2

MDF Frenzy

Posted on April 5th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

To say that I have been busy creating lots of MDF designs would be an understatement. Lots to put together and so little time. Advertisements

Mk2 Two Doors

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

I have added double doors to the ground floor of my multi-level building, looking pretty good! Advertisements

More Beef

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

I have had these two Ogryns knocking around for far too long waiting for some paint. Now they are finished, I can field two units of three beefy Ogryns in my Steam Wars Prussian army. They may even get used in a 40K Inquisition force… Advertisements

Wargame Exclusive Character

Posted on March 22nd, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

The range of models from Wargame Exclusive is superbly detailed and given that they are on the other side of Europe, postage costs have been okay so far. I wanted an alternative model to lead my Grey Knights and this chap fits the role. There are more models I fancy getting my hands on, but … Continue reading Wargame Exclusive Character

Pix from last night’s game in the new war room.

Posted on March 21st, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

A NEW WAR ROOM Moving the hobby game room down into the basement took a while, what with preliminary clean up and then physical transfer of well, everything. But it is more or less complete. I’m pressed for time today but here are photos of last night’s Zona Alfa game in the new digs. Here’s … Continue reading “Pix from last night’s game in the new war room.”

Gaslands

Posted on March 12th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

We had another bash at Gaslands last week with some of my newly designed a laser cut Gates. These are defiantly a better design than my first two attempts and they are much easier to put together. I tried out an unarmed Performance Car for the first time to see if its speed would help … Continue reading Gaslands

Sky Hussars

Posted on March 9th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I did actually finish these off last weekend during the snowy weekend but I have only just had chance to take a photo of them. I shortened the smoke plume so the models would fit onto a 25mm base and not have to use a large 40mm base. The flame effect is a bit stripey, … Continue reading Sky Hussars

Snow Day

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

When it is like this, there is nowt to do but paint… These are the last of my British infantry, at least I hope they are the last and there are no more lurking in the Loft Full Of Lead. Advertisements

A loft full of lead 2018-03-02 12:07:39

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

Some time ago I started on a design for an MDF landing craft. This needed to be big enough to take a standard 1/56 scale tank and a 80mm Dust base, two if possible. So after the initial concept test (above), I have now cut a more complete prototype. There is still some work to … Continue reading
