Martains have Landed

Finally, after much delay, the Tripods and Triplanes Kickstarter has landed. This is a fun add-on for Wings of Glory (Wings of War as was). Unfortunately, a series of events kept delaying the release from Ares games, but it turned up on my doorstep last week (in the pouring rain as the despatch driver didn't put it in the 'safe place' I'd specified. Thankfully it was extremely well packaged inside so avoided rain damage.)The base game, despite its name, does not actually include a Triplane but instead is a 1 on 1, Mk.1 Tripod vs Rocket-armed Nieuport N16, which was previously available years ago as part of the Balloon Buster set and which was at the time too pricey for me.The add-ons from the Kickstarter, included a full set of each of the four Marks of Martian Warmachines, a paper game mat, Balls' N16, Richtoffen's final plane, and a captured Sopwith Camel in german livery! plus extra rules to play the game solitaire and additional card and counters so you can play larger games.The picture above shows all Ma

Ogre Berzerker - C23 Ogres

OK, quick one today, just a palette cleanser while doing long run work on other projects just to keep my motivation up ! Painting Gutlagg clearly showed me I need to paint some models for fun and with no project or commitment associated, just for the sheer pleasure of painting. Like I explained earlier, to paint more and better, getting stuff you like done instead if stuff you have to do can be rewarding, when you don't want to paint, painting more but something else can help, anyway, I just grabbed this guy on top of the leadpile (literally the first ogre I had around) and just started bocking colours for fun.Read Moar Skullz »

The Fall of Gondolin - JRR Tolkien

The latest Tolkien book I devoured, the Fall of Gondolin, like Beren and Luthien before it, handles the tale from the Silmarillion, but also looks deeper in how the tale came to be through it's various iterations.And it has those gorgeous Alan Lee illustrations again.In the Tale of The Fall of Gondolin are two of the greatest powers in the world.  There is Morgoth of the uttermost evil, unseen in this story but ruling over a vast military power from his fortress of Angband.  Deeply opposed to Morgoth is Ulmo, second in might only to Manwe, chief of the Valar:  he is called the Lord of Waters, of all seas, lakes and rivers under the sky.  But he works in secret in Middle-Earth to support the Noldor, the kindred of the Elves among whom numbered Hurin and Turin Turambar.Central to this enmity of the gods is the city of Gondolin, beautiful but undiscoverable... until it becomes under siege due to an act of supreme treachery.  Balrogs and countless orcs assault the city, dragons burn down

40k World Eaters Predator

More firepower! Lascannons! 40k World Eaters Predator rolling in. Another 40k tank project for a client I did earlier back. Never really painted a 40k Predator tank before. The only difference are the turret and the side sponsons guns. Technically its more of the same feel as painting a 40k Rhino tank. The front panel of the World Eaters Predator was converted with the Forgeworld World Eaters front panel. The logos and symbols are brass etch from Forgeworld as well. The weathering I decided to keep it subtle with basic sand dust at the lower side and base of the tracks, along with some minor little paint chips randomly. All ready for a first battle with devastating damage!

Taking Baby out for its first stroll

Partizan was the debut of With Talon and Claw and I am pleased to say it was a sunny day for the new born. Several customers took delivery of their pre ordered books and a brisk trade was had by North Star who were selling the book on the day.The launch weekend has been a success and we've shifted enough copies already to ensure the book will have a healthy life.The game I chose as the launch pad was a bit of a fudge - ensemble cast on the Allied side - Russians, Prussians, Saxons, Danes, Tatars and Cossacks all lining up as the Blue Legions performed a sort of Last Hurrah! against this spectrum of wartime foes.It was a chance to get lots of tricornes on the table and some artillery too.I was next door to Mark Shearwood and the Derby Gang who were refighting a battle from 1689 at the Moyry Pass in Ireland which looked wonderful. Two BLB games on side by side, that was nice.I got a brief  run round the show and caught sight of some nice games including Imrie and Glanville's Medieval bash, The Iron Brigade

Even Stephen's

Although I bemoan my lack of wargaming on reflection I do OK, I just would like to do more, I have just been through to Stewart's for some X-Wing action to balance the scales somewhat as he is happy to play historical most of the time here at Casa Anderson. Coming up along with Club nights is a War and Conquest Sunday, it was to be a weekend but I cannot commit next month to two days, so Mark Walker is making the long trip up from Leicester, a keen player considering the state of the roads. I also have Stewart coming over for Chain of Command, so not bad really. My mate Billy in Scotland has built himself the wargaming equivalent of the Wolfschanze in his garden and is open for games, I was hoping to get up this month or next but real life has interfered, however it is always an option, maybe in October.Enough, what about the games, on arriving my grandson James was in the huff as he was not being allowed to play with Dad and Papa, so I offered him a game if he put a smile on his face, no, larger boy.

On the Painting Desk 108

Another week gone, and another week closer to the moment I`ll have to pack up all my stuff for the move.So in an effort to get as much done as possible, some strokes where brushed.I did some first colours on the drones for my Tau Commander, hoping to round that unit out in the not so far future.I also been doing some more work on Noshi`s Elves, but both units didn`t make any huge progress, just slow and certain steps forward.I did finish a small piece of scatter terrain though, as you could see in a post earlier this week, so that is something at least...

Scratch built 15mm Urbanmech

Hi guysMy first 15mm fully scratch built mech, its still a work in progress, made my first an urbanmech, because of the simple design, and I'm testing a new medium, (intend to make 8-10), 15mm figure for scale, I usually use kneadatite, procreate or miliput for sculpting, but have been eyeing off polymer clay for a long time, finally thought I would give it a go for this project, its about half the cost of miliput and a fifth of kneadatite, this sculpt cost me $3 Australian to complete.Polymer clay has some interesting properties, you can pick it up and handle it without leaving finger prints or distorting the shape, and you can take your time sculpting as it stays soft until cured in an oven.Its not perfect, but I have limited funds at the moment, I'm hoping to get a resin 3D printer for Christmas.

BOYL 2019 - Strontium Dog: The Shicklgruber Grab

Hi All,Another game from BOYL. This one was put on by Michael (Aiteal) and he really put a lot of love into his table. A fun and wacky scenario. Enjoy.I didn't really do much in this game against Bulldog Lopez, Erasmus Papafakis, and Asslessman. I made the mistake of taking a pot shot at Asslessman before he killed me and ended up winning the game. Unfortunately I also didn't get a picture of Bulldog's figure, which he sculpted himself. It was really cool.Anyway, I'm slowly painting up some stuff for a local game of RT, dreaming of Cyberpunk adventures and Warcry for next year. We'll see where this goes.Thanks for looking.
