Continuing with my coverage of my progress on my pledge for monster march. Bonus In kingdom death, survivors kill creatures and then make armour and weapons from their remains. As, when we have been playing, I have a very powerful twilight sword user w…

March Work in Progress #1

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

I am working on my first unit of Napoleonic Swiss.  I am using the Warlord plastic set.  This time I not only white primed but I am painting before assembly.  I really hoped this would speed up the process.  I have actually found it…

An army with an exotic theme – Chindits for Bolt Action

Posted on March 4th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I have this lot of chindits lying around for quite some time now, and I want to explain why I chose these and what is the motivation behind it. First of all, why a themed army? I always liked from background to my projects, wether it is sourced ficitional or historical. I like to have […]

Snow Day

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

Gaslands Honda S2000

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

I am having a go at my first Gaslands car conversion, a Hot Wheels Honda S2000 donated by Mr Steinberg for the chop. I started by using some mesh from a garlic bag to make a screen guard, lots of glue used here and it was really messy to stick down. I then basically cut … Continue reading Gaslands Honda S2000

February Work in Progress #1

After my last game of 40K over the weekend I have concluded I need more Killa Kans.  They really worked well.  Fortunately I had three more waiting to be built.

Whats On The Table?

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

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. There are four extra British Navy Marines from Black Scorpion, these should give me enough to make two full squads and plenty to crew the British Navy … Continue reading Whats On The Table?

West Wind Mech Kickstarter

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

Those lovely people at West Wind have delivered on their Mech Kickstarter, a sizable box arrived containing all manner of goodies. The three Mechs were the main reason I helped fund the project, but the rest of the stuff is fantastic as well. Apart from the three Mechs, there are a few robotic Terrier Machine … Continue reading West Wind Mech Kickstarter

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

Whats On The Table?

Posted on January 30th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I have been speed painting some Axis units for the next game of Dust Battlefield. An entire Zombie platoon seemed like a good idea. I already have plenty of standard zombies, so adding some zombies with guns seemed like an insane thing to do, zombies with guns? The first batch are The Cursed with plenty … Continue reading Whats On The Table?

Iron giants, iron calves and hovering boats

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

I saw this picture on facebook, it is a K2SO toy converted by Steve Perry (Rubicon Models UK represenatitv) into a 28mm terrain piece. That would be awesome for all kinds of Sci-Fi settings, from the Ashwastes of Necromunda, over Gates of Antares to Rogue Stars. This K2SO toy from Rogue One is available in […]

Walls And Fences

Posted on January 26th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Walls are always good and I wanted a 40mm high wall to block line of sight for standard sized models. These sections can be used to make various shapes and there is a gateway section in progress. This next railings section was not as good and needs more design work to make is feasible. I … Continue reading Walls And Fences

Industrial Tower

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

Apart from the mdf house I have designed, I am also working on a laser cut industrial complex for sci-fi games. My first piece is a tower using a Pringles container as the core. The idea is to have multiple pieces linking together with walkways and ramps. This first attempt looks okay when put together, … Continue reading Industrial Tower

MDF House

Posted on January 23rd, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Over the last couple of months, I have been trying my hand at some laser cut MDF things. I am getting better with the design software and have created my first house! A basic house is easy enough as it is basically a box, but that is not say that there are still some tweaks … Continue reading MDF House

White Tigers in the snow

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

Currently continuing on the vehicles for my Winter germans. I started with the Kingtiger with Zimmerit, that will be covered in a review along with the regular Kingtiger, an IS-2 and the Road to Berlin Bolt Action supplement, just as a little teaser for the next weeks. The Tiger II is accompanied by the Opel […]

Chaos Possessed – Paint in Progress #1

Posted on January 7th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

I built these Possessed a few years ago. I had a list idea at the time for a big local tournament with them, so I put these together. Pictured below are 4 of the 7 I built, the other 3 haven’t got paint on them yet. These were hobbled together with ass…

Ersatz StuG Ausf. G and more Germans in winter gear

The StuG is done and here are the proper picture of the third vehicle for my Unternehmen Greif / Panzerbrigade 150 force for Bolt Action. You can read about the work in progress in more detail over here, Ersatz Stug Ausf. G WIP. I thought a double sided Zeltbahn camouflage would be a nice detail […]

Inking the Cobbles

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

I have found some time to splash a bit of ink onto the first of the cobble boards. To give a bit of variation, I have used two different inks and tried to vary the level of cover across the area. Darker than I wanted, but some drybrushing should bring out the look I am … Continue reading Inking the Cobbles

Wallpapering The Stairs

Posted on January 4th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I decided for a different approach with covering the prototype port stairway, instead of folding paper over the side edges, I trimmer the paper to fit after it was glued. Only the steps had the paper folded over the edge. Will have to see how this looks. Advertisements

January Work in Progress #1

So far this year I have been working frantically on painting Perry plastic Confederates.  I have one regiment nearly complete and another regiment mounted on tongue depressors ready for base coating.
