Star Wars Hoth Project Update #2

Just a quick update today on the Star Wars project for HOTH.AT-ATs are done and ready for action.  All the AT-STs are done (6 - up from 4 done at last update).  Lots of basing done.  The Ion Cannon (aka giant boob nipple gun) is done.  All the T-47 Air Speeders are done (12 total, 3 squadrons - Rogue, Green and Blue).This week/weekend I plan to start the snow mat ... and get into the trenches as well ... fingers crossed that life/work doesn't derail those plans :-)Things are coming along nicely.  I decided to snap some pictures ... the table is still in the setup from my ACW game last weekend, but figured what the heck ... why not snap a few crappy phone pictures just for fun ...Near table level view ... these are BEASTS!

Star Wars: Legion – Imperial Bunker

Hello! Today I would like to present you a model of a bunker painted by our Studio, produced by the Polish manufactory Multiverse Gaming. The set is a mix of laser-cut HDF and thick model cardboard, from which finer details have been prepared (including the ribbing of walls). Sticking together and preparing the building for painting should not be a problem for any modeler. As a primer we used two layers of black, matt Vallejo Surface Primer applied with an airbrush. Later on, we used different shades of grey from the Vallejo Game Air palette. The effects of soiling are dry pigments and carefully applied inks. The model has a simple shape and well reflects the climate of the Imperial outpost somewhere on the Endor. I invite you to see the rest of the photos and follow us on social profiles.

EM4 ships and X-Wing

So, I’m picking up the occasional ship for X-Wing still when cheap, with 2nd edition now out it’s easier to get the cards than the models, so a bit of creative licence might be in the offing. So I picked up the spruce of plastic ships from EM4 Miniatures. I’m mainly trying to get a small Scum & Villainy selection, so a bit of a ragtag feel would not go amiss. As you can see, some could work for smaller stuff like the M3-A Interceptor (the pic below is the best comparison I could find online and puts the M3-A at about the length of the Y-Wing engine), or with a bit work a Kihraxz fighter. The more true to scale A-Wing is comparable, and the scaleable Snowspeeder from the Hoth ERTL kits suggest a possible source of Scum speeders for Ground Assault as well. The unpainted X-Wing from the same Hoth kits will eventually make some decent Z-95 Headhunters.

Star Wars Hoth Project Update

Hello everyone.  Many projects are seeing some excellent progress currently.  My main focus is on running my Star Wars Hoth game at PacifiCon over the labor day weekend here in the US.I'd like to say, this project wouldn't be possible without the AWESOME Golden Candle Miniature Painting - thank you Michael!  More on them once I have everything pulled together for this --- and I take far better pictures than what you'll see here today ...First, one of my favorite pictures of Echo Base I've seen ...This single picture is driving my concept for this game.  For the Ion Cannon (or, giant boob nipple gun as it is called in the Family Guy Star Wars spoofs), looking at the painting result to be as follows ...I picked up the free (Thingiverse) model and cleaned it up/resized and 3D printed it.  Model and result below ...This is about the size of a small soccer ball ... should be a nice terrain element on the tabletop when completed.I'll be fielding 3 x AT-AT - 3D printed from the model availab

KublaCon 2019 Convention Report

Another KublaCon has come and gone along with a weekend full of top notch miniature gaming.The Toulon Harbor crew ready for action!I continue to be impressed with the quality of miniature gamers that show up at KublaCon.  Across the board we had great players throughout all of our games - which as a GM makes running the games much easier.Here's is what we ran:Battle of Roncevaux Pass - This is a scenario Roy Scaife put together.  28mm Napoleonic game with British, Spanish and Portuguese fighting against the French.Battle for the Forest Moon of Endor - 32mm Star Wars Bolt Action (Legion).  Dan Kerrick brought this battle to life.  Rebels have landed on the forest moon of Endor to bring down the shield generator that is protecting the orbiting Death Star.Charge of the Haradrim - 28mm Lord of the Rings SBG.  I expanded scenario covering the Mûmaks charging against the Rohan forces just after they've run through the ranks of Orcs laying siege to Minas Tirith.  I add more Riders of Ro

Last of Imperial Assault--really!

No, for reals this time, this is the last of the Imperial Assault commission I took on. There was one lonely Gomorrean guard who needed painting and basing to match on of his colleagues. I managed to knock this off over the weekend despite the allure of the bike, kayak and garden.Up next: Some rebased 1/72-scale War of 1812 Americans. Just need to touch up a few rifle barrels that shed their paint during rebasing.

This guy was long overdue but I chickened out doing the LED mod and airbrushing the camo pattern. Finally took my brave pills and did both last week.

Post Adepticon Breakdown Part Two: Assault on Kings Landing, Space Hulk and Star Wars Legion

Back with my continues coverage of Adepticon 2019.Check out part 1 here where I talk about my first impressions of A Song of Ice and Fire game, Horus Heresy Knight Fight, and the Kings of War Big Battle.I skipped my first game to sleep and paint that day. It was an ASoIF even, but only cost me $5, and I made the better decision considering how late I stayed up to finish for the 40k team event the next day.I did make it to my second game, which was ASoIF Assault on Kings Landing. What made this game extra fun was it was ran by the game's designer. He had a really cool mission put together where the 8 players (mostly Starks and Boltons) fought his Lannister Army. I was that little green blob of Wildlings led by Tomund Giantsbane. Not the most accurate thing, but awesome of him to let my do that when asked who my favourite character was when he realized he didn't have enough units set up for us. He also had a constant narrative progression happening. AND BRIBES. He'd bribe up with free models to do certain actio

Imperial Settlers and Rancor

This week was club night and Terry hosted a game of Imperial Settlers. I had a hoot! What a pleasant and interesting game of resource management.George also hosted a WW2 plane game that I did not get a chance to watch.I have been doing a bit of painting to finish off a commission (some broken pieces that the manufacturer replaced for the owner).I finished the Rancor. What a lovely model! And huge!I left it glossy as all of the movie stills show it as a touch damp or slimy.I had some trouble getting a decent shot--it looks much nicer in person than these photos show off.Up next: I have on last gormorrian guard who is underway and hopefully some western gaming.
