Black Mamba

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

This Black Mamba Allied Dust aircraft was shown in an online magazine some time ago but apparently will not be out for quite some time. Shame really, as it is a great looking plane and this is about the only model left that I would buy from the Dust range, mainly because I have loads … Continue reading Black Mamba

A novel new offer – Mounted Officer and Cornet packs

Posted on December 6th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Cornet from WLOA40 with a new right arm! (As Adam Murray)

Over the years I have done many special deals for customers which have involved splitting packs to get various figures out. I have accumulated dozens of perfectly good cavalry models which cannot be sold in packs of three because one or more figures are missing.

Officer from WLOA36 as a brigadier of Horse

I have featured many of my officer/personality conversions on the blog over the years and these always seem to go down well. As I was packing stock for Crisis I came across boxes of excellent cavalry officers and cornets all jumbled up.

Officer from WLOA40 as a Brigadier of Horse

An idea! I can put together random mixed packs of mounted officers and cornets. The selection comes from packs WLOA 19, 21, 33, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56 and 57.

Unreleased officer now available in these packs

 There are a total of  seventeen officers and thirteen cornets. I am going to offer these in four randomly mixed codes:

representative selection

WLOA 65:  Mounted Officers on standing horses : random mix or 3 men and 3 horses

representative selertion

WLOA 66:  Mounted Officers on galloping horses : random mix or 3 men and 3 horses
WLOA 67:  Mounted Standard bearers on standing horses : random mix or 3 men and 3 horses
WLOA 68:  Mounted Standard bearers on galloping horses : random mix or 3 men and 3 horses

Scabbards and arms/weapons will be included.

The good news is that although these figures are all perfectly good castings in every way they will retail at £7.50 per pack of 3 cavalry and not the usual £8.50 making each model only £2.50.

Officer from WLOA48 with floppy hat as Lord Montcashel

The variety is so wide that with the arm variants available and the horse variants there are literally scores of options available. Some of my own efforts can be seen accompanying the post.

Officer from WLOA50 as cavalry general

Cornet from WLOA57 as Swede 

Cornet from WLOA42 as Swedish Cornet circa 1685

Cornet from WLOA50 as Swede

For both Brigadiers of Foot ad Horse this offers  tremendous choice to bolster your officer corps.

Random Miniatures

Posted on December 2nd, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

These two came out of a bits box at a recent show. I thought they would be useful in Rogue Stars and Scrappers. No idea who made them, but they are okay and only got very quick paint jobs. Advertisements

A Prayer to St. Strelok – part 3

At first Yuri thought Sasha had given him the headache; a clip and a half of her painful chatter followed by his mad dash through the swamp, gulping down bog stench and terror. But that was almost an hour ago and the throb was only getting worse. Every step deeper into the Chernya was like … Continue reading “A Prayer to St. Strelok – part 3”

Landing Engine Nozzles

Posted on November 29th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

I needed four more rocket nozzles for the transporter landing engines. As I have not been painting much recently, mainly due to building this monster, I have not been accruing very many of the Vallejo/Army Painter paint lids. So instead I have made four larger nozzles from white wood glue containers. Note sure if I … Continue reading Landing Engine Nozzles

Age of Sigmar – Skaven Catapult

Posted on November 28th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Skaven engineering and wyrdstone – it`s not safe combination in Old World 🙂 A few months ago I had a pleasure to paint some Skaven machines. Multipart kits are awesome and especially wood structure is very good. Painting is standard and simple – tabletop level.

The 24″ square foam boards are coming along and are nearly ready for painting. I did not like the first attempt at putting balsa along the waterline , so I removed it and put it along the top edge instead. Much better. The finished edge looks okay. I now need loads of gray and wood … Continue reading Port Boards

This is a nice figures from CP Miniatures with a rather impressive gun that can be pretty well profiled up as just about anything. I decided on blue skin as I really don’t have many models that have blue skin. I must try orange or purple sometime. Advertisements
