Psychology is an interesting subject. Not just because many years ago in a pub I (foolishly) proclaimed it’s “not a real science” after many jars, but because it affects all of us in different ways. We’re predisposed to like or dislike certain things, find stuff tasty or disgusting or, in my case, buy stuff because we’ve had a single good experience with something similar in the past. For example, Stonemaier Games, my fascination with E46 BMWs or Steve’s weird obsession with anything Lovecraft. Read more »
Living in the rural West of Ireland, I'm used to ordering a lot of my hobby supplies from overseas. This isn't usually a huge deal, but as we all know, international shipping has been creeping up over the last few years. I became aware of Hobbymad a while ago, but my recent dealings with them has made me a big fan.I base all my minis with magnetic base bottoms. Why? Well, there are a few reasons. Number one is transport and storage. When a model is transported in a box lined with sheet steel, or indeed in a metal biscuit tin that model is going nowhere. For frail models like Man O'War, with those masts, or many of the more recent GW minis, this is paramount. Some of Hobbymad's range of magnetic base bottoms.Peel off the paper...Look at that. LOVELY.No sliding off the dead tray for these guys. Plus you are sorted for those battling down the fridge games.This again is super useful if you use movement trays. Line the tray with sheet steel and base the models with magnetic bottoms. Once in the tray, those la
A bit unexpected a new Killzone was released, the Killzone Sector Fronteris. So far, the existing Killzones were based upon already released terrain kits and repacked them with a solid bargain. The Sector Fronteris makes use of the STC Ryza Pattern design, that were first introduced with the Realm of Battle Moon Base Klaisus and […]

I have a review for you today – Go To Ground Wargaming Review. I’ve used Urban Jungle terrain from Go To Ground Wargaming in two games now. I love it! Let’s take a closer look… Never miss an article? Subscribe! I got one large set of Urban Jungle terrain. There is also a Fantasy Jungle terrain set, but the urban buildings felt more in keeping with Warhammer 40K. And this terrain seems very fitting now that my Catachans are taking shape in the form of three Cyclops Demolition Vehicles and three Hellhounds. Also got 30 Guardsmen on the way for […] The post Go To Ground Wargaming Review – Urban Jungle appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.

Avid readers of this blog and listeners of our podcast will be aware that I have a bit of a soft spot for all things Stonemaier. Despite this, I raised a quizzical eyebrow when I saw the teasers for Between Two Castles of Mad king Ludwig, which incidentally sounds like more of a mashup of a few reality TV shows. All we need now is to Strictly Get me out of a Jungle on Ice and we’d have the set. Read more »
I’ve recently finished reading one of the best fantasy series I’ve come across lately: Jon Skovron’s Empire of the Storms trilogy. Starting with Hope and Red, it tells the story of two people, a girl who grows up to be a fearsome warrior and a boy who becomes a thief. However, what could easily have become a cliché-ridden ‘team becoming couple’-story develops into a much more exciting thing. The books are set in an interesting world, namely an Empire made up of islands in a vast ocean. This alone is great, as I love nautical fantasy (and I have to admit that this was the reason I got the book in the first place). But if I came for the ships, I stayed for the characters: Skovron introduces a plethora of compelling and complex characters. Each of them has his or her own motivation and, most importantly of all, they all change and develop as things happen to them. Best of all, the changes within the characters actually drive the story and define the stakes – which, in a way, become higher than in most other fant
...what the RGG 360 does achieve is showing that other companies are now taking risks and stepping forward into the market of accessories and tools in our hobby. This will end well for us hobbyists in the long run and this feels like a great start. [...] The post RGG 360° Painting Handle – Giving It A Spin appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
In late 2017 Warlord Games covered the Opel Blitz / Maultier combi plastic kit for Bolt Action. The truck is one of the workhorses of the German army, transporting troops, supplies and ammunition were they were needed. The Opel Blitz is the most known of these trucks, other companies like Ford or Daimler supplied their […]
So for those keeping up I recently reviewed the Wrathmonger box which is a lovely kit, but more importantly I was left with many spares. So I have 5 torsos, a load of weapon options and some front plates to … Continue reading →
For years, I had a hobby area that was functional, but not quite so nice to showcase. In a recent The post Review: Paint Rack for Dropper Bottles by Six Squared Studios appeared first on Must Contain Minis [MCM].
Based upon the already available Opel Blitz Kit (RM280026), Rubicon published the Maultier variant that replaces the rear wheels with tracks. As with some of their other kits, like the SdKfz 25x, they cover further accessories. For the Blitz and Maultier there is the option to upgrade the cargo bed with the box body "Einheitskoffer". […]
The Merchant Shop is the latest addition to Tabletop World's range of medieval/fantasy buildings. In this blog post I take a closer look at the model and explain why I believe that it is their best building yet.In November last year, Tabletop World (TW) released the Merchant Shop. I own nearly all of the many buildings that were released over the years and I have to say that this one stands out. Literally. TW already said it in their announcement on Facebook:The Merchant Shop fromTabletop WorldWe proudly present you our new Merchant Shop in heroic scale! This is the first in the line of models that will take your gaming experience to the next level! Apart from highest attention to detail we had game-play in mind when creating the model. You can easily use it with miniatures that are in 28-32mm scale. The whole building has plenty of space to move your miniatures around, with several floors connected with stairs. All doors, window shutters and hatches are hinged and fully operational so you can
