Ultramarines Razorback

Razorbacks are common variations of the Rhino chassis that can be armed with a variety of powerful turret-mounted heavy weapon systems that offer the squads they carry effective fire support before and after they disembark. This Space Marine Ultramarines Razorback was on display at Warhammer World. I have been working on (for too long now) a Grey Knights Razorback. The post Ultramarines Razorback appeared first on Felix's Gaming Pages.

Mountain Village for Test of Honour– Farmhouse & Rice Store

Here’s the Mountain Village Farmhouse, built as per instructions in the packet. I went to work with the strip-wood to add some beams, this took a couple of hours, there’s a lot of them. Thatch added with scouring pads. Roof ridge scratch-built from wooden coffee stirrers and strip-wood and everything given a base coat.  Grey for the wood, brown for the thatch. Inks, dry-brushing and panels painted. Another view of the finished model. A Sarissa Rice Store.  This model didn’t really need any added beams, but I changed the tiled roof for a thatched one with scouring pads and scratch-built a roof ridge.

Mountain Village for Test of Honour – Hovel & Animal Shelters

Another Japanese scenery kit from Sarissa Precision.  This time the Mountain Village Hovel & Animal Shelter Set.  This is how the hovel looks built as per instructions in the pack.   I also took some inspiration from  a rather good two part article article about making these buildings available on the Sarissa blog.  Part 1 covers making the thatched roofs  from scouring pads, part 2 covers using water colour brush pens to add some subtle shading effects. To personalise the building I’ve added some strip-wood to make it a bit less boxy, put bits of scouring pad on the roof, and scratch-build a roof ridge out of wooden coffee stirrers and strip-wood.  Roof ridge is glued on to the top of the roof. Base coat of gray paint on the walls and roof ridge and watered down acrylic black mixed with PVA glue on the thatch. Inks and dry-brushing.   The animal shelters were done much the same way.

My Sanada for Test of Honour

I’ve had all these Dixon Samurai for at least 20 years and have played various games with them.  Having discovered the Test of Honour skirmish game I took them all down from the shelf, touched them up a bit, added Sanada sashimonos and made some sabot bases.  I even ordered up a few more so that I could make two forces with all the choices needed for the basic scenarios in the Test of Honour rules.  The Sanada mons on the sashimonos were designed using Coreldraw and printed out on laser printer waterslide decal paper.    The whole force. Samurai Ashigaru with Yari   Asigaru with bow Teppo Standard bearer and musician.  Now to finish off my other force, one that I can use as allies or opponents for my Sanada.

Tanks for the memories...

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.Over the last couple of weeks, I have mostly been absolutely shattered... so things have happened in fits and starts.Work has been very good and I am still loving it. A few changes have happened but the team is pulling together and making everything tick along nicely so Kudos to everyone there.From a charity perspective, I have been very humbled by the massive support I have received from my work mates and visitors, for my "Boldly Goes" event. I have collected over £150 in sponsorship pledges so far and that will go very nicely towards my goal of buying a new 'Flexi Porter' chair for my care home. I have also been invited to carry out the little shaving event at my local pub "The Rodney Inn", in Helston so that's where it will happen and many thanks to Terry and Emma for that wonderful gesture.As for the on-line fund-raiser, I could do with a bit more support so if you are able to, please see if you can add some funds here:Steve Boldly Goes LINKIn other charity news, I

Sudan. Blue Jackets to the Front.

Inspired by sketches made by Melton Prior and others and this splendid 1884 illustration by W H Overend, I had to make a team of Blue Jackets man-hauling a gatling gun in the Sudan. The figures are Perry Sudan Naval Brigade running at the trail. There is some simple converstion work and a tiny bit of scratch buliding but not much else. I like this.

SAGA Age of Vikings

I now have the second edition Saga rules, which I bought new and the Age of Vikings supplement, which I bought second hand but 'as new' for twenty quid, which is a bargain. I'll do some reading around the rules when the the Age of Vikings book arrives later this week, as I've also unearthed a load of Gripping Beast mid-Saxon metal figures that I'd forgotten about, so could do a West Saxon ninth century warband instead of the Welsh. In the meantime, I have some other plans designed to get me up to speed with 28mm figure painting, as I definitely need a refresher course! (more about that later today).

On the Painting Desk 112

It has been a good week to get some figures further near the "ready" mark.Not that the whole lot is finished, but progress has been made big time on some of the larger units.The Men of Minas Tirith swordsmen have all been completed as well now bar the flocking of the bases, so they have been put aside.  I'm planning on doing a large "flock-a-thon" for the rank and filers once the Morannons and Moria Goblins are done as well, putting them all in one go through the good old flock box.Same goes for the Mordor banner, who is also down that line now, and work has begun on the Cirith Ungol Uruk-hai for their battle company.Though doubt is starting to creep in, wether to go for the havocs or not in the end... I'm still contemplating wether or not I'll let them make "the move", as Psychic Awakening will add yet another book to the pile (or mutliples) to haul along to events... Meanwhile at Paint Station BetaTalking those Morannons, the skin base colour is done now as well, and the figures are awaiting their move

To the Strongest! in Glasgow

This weekend I'm in Glasgow, where Dave Soutar of Glasgow and District Wargaming Society has organised a two day TtS! event. Dave very kindly picked me up from the station and we played the first two games, yesterday.Above is game one vs. Balkan Dave, who I already knew of of from his excellent blog.  Predictably Dave had brought (Balkan) Dacians. I only got this one photo- You can see I've out scouted him, and am preparing to smite his right wing with the full might of Milanese chivalry. It went well for Milan, although the Sarmatians put up a tough fight. I spent the post game period trying to persuade Dave to write all the Medieval Balkan army lists that I'm lacking- Serbs, Albanians, Transylvanians.  :-)Here's game two vs Bill. Bill had a beautifully painted Aventine Sassanid army. He outscouted me (the horror!) and started pushing his troops forward (below). I quickly found myself pinned on my side of the table, and out flanked on my left. I didn't have an answer for the Sassanid elephant, eith

Games n Dice Historical Demo Day 2019

As Gregor is sharing the images from their Longstreet battles and going for quite some length to do research on his regiments, it was about time, to give this ACW rule set a try. Therefore he invited me to join them on their Games n Dice Demo day on historical tabletop systems to Düsseldorf. The […]

30-dniowe Wyzwanie Fantastyczne.Dzień 22: Ulubiona Potęga Chaosu, Dom z Harrego Pottera lub ród z Gry o Tron i dlaczego?

Jeśli wziąć pod uwagę Potęgę Chaosu, która najczęściej stała za intrygami w których brali udział bohaterowie graczy w czasie sesji Warhammer Fantasty RolePlay, to byłby to Wielki Mutator, ale i kultyści pozostałej trójki mieli swoje 5 minut.A dlaczego? Może dlatego, że człowiek w większości przypadków chce zmian i wierzy, że będą to zmiany na lepsze?***Przygód Harrego Pottera wciąż nie poznałem.***Z kolei ród z Gry o Tron, to oczywiście Starkowie. Ponieważ Winter is coming!***Wprowadzenie do 30-dniowego Wyzwania Fantastycznego znajdziecie TUTAJ.Będzie mi miło jeśli pozostawicie po sobie komentarz i udostępnicie ten post. Jeśli chcecie postawić mi kawę przycisk DONATE znajduje się poniżej.I will be happy if you leave comments and share this post with friends.
