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

Time for a little extra post to push you on through the week! As I’m looking at finishing off a few modern US military vehicles, I decided to pick up a pack of Empress US Stowage 1 to make them look a bit more used and in action rather than factory fresh. Inside the bag … Continue reading Impressions: Empress US Stowage 1

First Gaslands Game

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

Last night was my first attempt at Gaslands, yet another Osprey rulebook in their ever expanding range. The initial impression is good, once you get over the number of counters and dice required to record a vehicles Gear, Damage and Hazard status, it plays quite quickly. The start is pretty chaotic with all the vehicles … Continue reading First Gaslands Game

Before I allow myself the time to put together any of the new West Wind models received this week, I must clear some of the painting back log.

Inking The MDF House

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

I have inked my prototype MDF house. Although the final design needs a few tweaks, which have now been done, the prototype was still a usable model, I don’t like waste. It has basically been inked with reds and browns. The first floor is removable, hence the hole for sticking a finger into! I googled … Continue reading Inking The MDF House

These guys have quite short range weapons so have … Continue reading Dust Laser Grenadiers

Armed Zombies

Posted on January 31st, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Can anything be more terrifying? Zombies with guns! The camouflage did not turn out too bad on these, just a Field Drab base coat with some green and browns for the detail. In their first game, these terrors performed very well. Advertisements

Whats On The Table?

I have been speed painting some Axis units for the next game of Dust Battlefield. An entire Zombie platoon seemed like a good idea.

The first batch are The Cursed with plenty … Continue reading Whats On The Table?
