Missile Rack

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

I have yet another weapon option for the top of the transporter. Over on the Lead Adventure Forum, a regular poster offered to send me a Taurox missile rack all the way from Finland for no charge, very nice of him indeed. This weapon is nice and low profile and so looks perfect on the … Continue reading Missile Rack

Forge World Dread

Posted on October 18th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

This is another model that has been in the Loft Full Of lead for ages. I have magnetized the weapon mounts so there is plenty of scope for weapon combination using the three I have and possibly adding more in the future. I really like the model, but having it for years, I was not … Continue reading Forge World Dread

Battle Report – Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago – ‘The Stone Circle’

Posted on October 17th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

  The Blood Totems must have been a warning to outsiders, but to the crews of Ares and Arturo they were an invitation to press deeper into the watery region. Finally a massive circle of stones appeared. The haunted isle must protect something valuable and the crews race to secure it, even as a shadowy […]

New Toy!

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

I finally have the new Mantic Tunneler from their Kickstarter which ended exactly two years ago. It is quite a nice looking kit and appears to snap together but there are no instructions. There seem to be some optional parts in the kit, I really can’t remember what I was expecting anyway or what the … Continue reading New Toy!

Wargaming Week 16/10/2017

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

Let’s start, covering the 9th of October through to the 15th of October. BLOG STUFF My article on Tiny Terrain’s recent releases is now out. Nice figures, but not exactly the style I like. However, I’m still excited to see what comes out from them next – I’m keeping a close eye on the current kickstarter. […]

Siege Crawler

Posted on October 15th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

At the Colours show a few weeks ago, Simple Miniatures were doing a ridiculous deal for a few Privateer Press models, so I could not resist and bought this large siege crawler for £17.50. When it was released a while back, I really liked the model and thought it would be really cool to use … Continue reading Siege Crawler

Savage Worlds Test Drive

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

Gave the Savage Worlds combat system a quick test drive last week. Broke out a couple of my scratch-built interior boards and had a salvage crew escort a technician through an abandoned research facility. Lights were out but of course the automated defenses were still online. Here are some quick shots   There were five … Continue reading “Savage Worlds Test Drive”

Finishing Internal Detail

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

The last bits have been added to the ship interior and I really should stop. Any blank wall space in the following pictures will have detail added when it is painted, these will mostly be computer displays with some graphics. Other wall space has been covered in techno gubbins that should look okay when painted … Continue reading Finishing Internal Detail

Initial Impressions: Tiny Terrain’s Figures

Posted on October 13th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

So far most of this blog has been filled with models from Empress, Eureka and Spectre. Today however, I’m going to take a look at Tiny Terrain’s current offerings – in particular his law enforcement pack (that was released a few weeks ago)and the two man JTAC team released earlier this year. This is just […]

Radar Dish

Posted on October 11th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Any decent spaceship needs a radar dish of some description. I have several options for the top of the hull, all interchangeable. The radar dish is a few bases stuck together and finished with some perspex off cuts and plasticard. Initially I did not have a bit for the center of the dish, I was … Continue reading Radar Dish

Alcatraz

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

I was in San Francisco in August and went to Alcatraz, which is well worth a visit if you are ever there. At the mainland dock is a huge model of the island which looks suspiciously like it would be perfect for a game of something involving 28mm figures. Dust, Konflikt ’47 or Bolt Action … Continue reading Alcatraz

Let’s start, covering the 2nd of October through to the 8th of October. BLOG STUFF Last week’s post was looking into Spectre’s unreleased stuff. It was a fun piece to write and has lead me to write a companion piece looking at rare items Spectre has released over the years. It also meant I got […]

Upper Hull Detail

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

The upper hull of the transport has had plenty of rivets and detail added. I may still add some more rivets, particularly around the edges. The front recess also needs a bit more so there are not too many flat spaces left. I found some really old plastic twin lascannons in the Loft Full Of … Continue reading Upper Hull Detail

Spectre Miniatures Unreleased Models: October 2017

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

As you may have seen based on the posts, I really like Spectre Miniatures. They make a great set of rules and make some of the coolest figures available to the modern gamer. Another thing that particularly good about them is how often they post up some previews and show the world what is coming […]

Cobble Dias

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

After my test run, I have repainted and re-inked the raised dias for my town center fountain. I also did a bit of grey drybrushing to see how that affected the finish and it is not too bad. Advertisements

Adding Details

Posted on October 3rd, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

With the fiddly bit done, the main build of the transport ship is done! All that is left is to add three more rocket nozzles and more bits of interior detail. Then it is a case of waiting for a nice dry day to undercoat it. The bridge had some plastic bits added to hide … Continue reading Adding Details
