Reaper Clockwork Dragon

Posted on February 24th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

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

Heavy Weapon Conversion

Posted on February 22nd, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

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

Objectives And Stuff

Posted on February 19th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

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

Mechanica Gun Drones

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

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

Treasure Chests And Stuff

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

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…

Rogue Stars Hulk

Posted on February 9th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

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

Dust Axis Lara

Posted on February 7th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

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

Dust Axis Faceless Death

Posted on February 5th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

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 …

Dust Axis Panzers

Posted on February 1st, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

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

Mole Markers

Posted on January 31st, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

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.

King Buggy Weapons

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

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

King Buggy Cockpit

Posted on January 24th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

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

Book Review: Tabletop Wargames A Designers’ and Writers’ Handbook

Posted on December 19th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

Pen and Sword Books very kindly sent me a copy of Tabletop Wargames: A Designers’ and Writers’ Handbook for review. I was very pleased about this as, like a lot of wargamers, I have,  over the years, considered putting pen to paper and trying…
