Antediluvian Miniatures - Kickstarter - Conquerors of Mictlan - Painted (Finally)

Time to catch up on some of the outliers. Last September I picked up the Antediluvian Miniatures - Kickstarter - Conquerors of Mictlan Range. Well a year later they finally made it off the paint table.... Shameful.These will be perfect for the Ghost Archipelago or the Elizabethan Zombie War Projects, as always with Antediluvian some great sculpts and really rich in character.Spanish Officer types, the chap on the left with his two handed broadsword has a full face mask, whilst the second character even comes with his own monkey.More Spanish men-at-arms lets see how the rapier fares against the wandering dead......Born adventurers, it must be over 20 years since I last painted a dwarf but these guys should come in handy in the campaigns ahead.The scholars and the young prince. Already thinking about the scenario's for these characters.I was pretty impressed with Warlords of Erehwon Warlords fantasy rules when we first gave them a run out. With plenty of scope for some of the odd ideas I had for the Elizab

WWW1 arillery stand

After a flurry of painting activity (you can always tell when it's a term break), in 15mm (French Ordonnance for DBA) and 6mm (1940 French for Spearhead), I was about to get stuck into the remaining 6mm FPW army (which have sat unpainted for perhaps a decade.However I managed to tweak muscles in my lower back while in the garden this morning and, feeling pretty annoyed, I wanted something different to do. Even sitting at the painting table for more than 10 minutes at a time resulted in some discomfort, so it needed to be a project that could be done in small easy chunks. Aha, I had a spare Airfix RHA 18pdr, and some British Colonial artillery crew (Ha0, so put these together to create an artillery stand for the 20mm Weird World War 1 artillery.The artillery stand. I chose a slightly unorthodox uniform for the crew.. a mix of Colonial British and WW2 with a blue tunic and khaki trousers, and helmetThe old and the new.. the two artillery stands for the army..The army is progressing towards a "Big Battle" config

The Campaign for Azmodov 7: Break Out Phase

They had withstood, and even repelled, the initial attack.  But the brave soldiers of the Pax Arcadia knew they couldn't keep withstanding the massed ranks of Marines that kept breaking from orbit.  A true overwhelming mass was gathering on the outskirts of the cities, and soon they would begin their break out of the landing zones.  Officers at Central Command could see the legions of debauchery line up, the storm would come very soon...The third game in our Future War Commander "Colonisation" campaign, as Nemesis and me faced off again for a battle at the club.  This time, I would command once again 3000 points, while he would have a measly 1500 points at his disposal, but the previous battle showed that is no way a sure defeat.My forces where build around speed and transport capacity this time, as I would need to either occupy his third of the table, or even better get as many troops as possible from his table edge.  He needed to prevent this.To that end, the Pax Arcadia force broug

Beastgrave – Returning to Warhammer Underworlds

Does Beastgrave improve Warhammer Underworlds? I'd certainly say so. Is Beastgrave enough to breathe fresh life into the game? To reignite the flames in the "ultimate competitive miniatures game"? That, I cannot honestly answer currently. Time will tell... [...] The post Beastgrave – Returning to Warhammer Underworlds appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.

Paint progression cheap 15mm mech

Hi guysA painting progression on the cheap mech, started with a grey undercoat, then black wash, and white dry brush for pre shading, I bought a contrast red to test how they are, and thought I would use this project for the test, applied the contrast red, and then regular acrylic black, the contrast would suit those wanting to paint large numbers quickly, but I wasn't happy with the results, so have gone over it with acrylic red (Vallejo), next up I'll do a black pin wash, then highlights, then add some details, then weathering. I think I need to add more detail to the base, rubbish and debris, thoughts?

The Bridge of Khazad-Dum and Dumber

As I referred to in the last post, I attended the recent Barrage convention (put on by the HAWKS, a MD based gaming club) two weeks ago. I played Cruel Seas from late afternoon until 5 (see last post) and then squeezed my way into an evening game. I was glad I did. The game was THE BRIDGE AT KHAZAD DUM and the GM was Matt Kirkhart, from somewhere in Maryland. Matt was reenacting a critical sequence from the Fellowship of the Ring, where the Balrog emerges to chase the Fellowship to the Bridge, and Gandalf says his line, and, well, you know.. mumble mumble… Here’s the cool part. He made the miniatures. Pippin Sam Frodo, plus Glowing Sword STING Aragorn Gandalf Pretty cool, huh? These were made with “bits and bobs and craft bits and interesting shapes and a lot of paint”, to paraphrase the creator. The result is a set of miniatures to create a LOTR miniature game that is entirely unique, visually striking and not for sale anywhere! Follow me,

The Haul Report 201

A week where orders kept falling in the mailbox...First of all, my pre-order of the new MESBG cards arrived, together with the Army of the Dead dice.Seeing how quickly these all sold out, I`m glad I ordered mine immediatly from the get-go.Another parcel that arrived this week contained my Kings of Men Made to Order, combined with the reference sheet pack to take along to events.A final, small, parcel that came in was send by my regular "dealer" and contained 3 wildmen of Dunland for my battle companies project.A very good week of Tolkien-esque stuff indeed!

Expedited Services

If your project is Expedited it means we are guaranteeing a set turnaround time.  You pay an extra amount for this.The time starts when all your models arrive in the studio.  If you have stragglers, that delays the time.As part of the deal, you have to check in once a week and mention your specific deadline.  You will be issued your deadline the first time you check in.  You will send an email asking explicitly "What is my exact deadline?" on your first check-in.  The reason for this is that it can't be set until all the models are in the studio.The cost is factored from the assembly/painting cost for your project:+20% for an eight week deadline+30% for a six week deadline+40% for a four week deadlineThe end mark is the day that we get pictures up of your product for final review.  If you have revisions that need to be done, we'll make them reasonably quick, but it doesn't count against the time.  Once we put up those pictures, the clock is off!We are highly, highly motivate

Houkago Saikoro Club Ep. 1 – Marrakech Marvels

Most of my predictions for Houkago Saikoro Club were a bit off. For one, the show’s protagonist, Miki, isn’t a new student. Her background is that of a socially awkward person who doesn’t enjoy “fun” activities that most other people would enjoy. She gets my fullest sympathies since I’m sort of the same way. Except less timid, though having a few extra decades of life experience might have something to do with that. Aya is the energetic girl with the heart of gold, but who I predict will bear the brunt of other people’s in-game jabs. Finally, we have Midori, who is all about rules. School rules, club rules, and, naturally, board game rules. She also serves as the class rep in the series. The first episode of Houkago Saikoro Club opens with Miki talking about her socially awkward disposition and then proceeds to have Aya pushing Miki to open up with an impromptu tour of Kyoto. The action starts when Miki and Aya start heading home, but catch Midori heading towards her afterschool job as a clerk in a ga
