work in progress
Did anyone else had the time to watch the third season of Stranger Things? In episode two you can see the physics teacher painting some miniatures. I assume that's Legolas? I am a grass widower for a couple of days, so I used the time to do some of things, that aren't that welcome when […]
We've covered the history of the Citadel Paints in part 1, then had the chance to see them in action in part 2 / the review and now I may welcome you to the third part, with a sum up and collection of multiple feedbacks and reviews that I found online in the past few […]
So after the overview of the history of Citadel Colours, let's get painting and see how these work. To get to know these new paints better, I prepared a couple of miniatures to be painted, among them the regular snap-fit Space Marine. Why did I choose these models? First of all, the Space Marine is […]
Games Workshop introduced with their Contrast Colours a new part of their already quite broad painting range. But where does it come from and what does it do? Among the early days of Games Workshop, when they shifted from being a distributor and publisher towards the miniature tabletop company we know today, Citadel Miniatures played […]
As covered in the article on CONflict two weeks ago, I'll be taking a summer break on events after this weekends TableTopia. But you'll find the event coverage on the blog on sunday, maybe late saturday. If you're following me on instagram or facebook, you might already know, that I have some promo material for […]
One of the many dangers of watching YouTube is that you think something someone else has done is a good idea and you decide to give it a go. I was looking for alternative ways of getting the paint off models and there were several references to ultrasonic cleaners. These things are cheaper than you would think at £20 on eBay. Methylated spirits seems to be the stuff of choice to remove paint and so far the results have been pretty good. So I bought one… The first model zapped was a really old beakie Imperial Space Marine from the multi part box set from way back in 1988 I think… It took a bit of extra scubbing with a tooth brush in a bowl of warm water, but it has come out rather well. The next batch going in are some old Space Wolf Terminators and a number of 1980’s lead Space Marines with various weapons and wargear.
As the third lineplayer paintwise doesn't offer anything new compared to the other two, I'll talk a bit about my Wanderleague system today, but more about that in a moment. I've tried a little something on Gorhuk the Smelly. On the one hand, I'm just starting to love the color scheme of keeping the clothes […]
In december of last year I did a solid theme week on Adeptus Titanicus. I covered the two Warlord Battle Titans, the Reaver Battle Titan in both variants as well. They stand proud and tall, I've just ordered a box of Questoris Knights and Cerastus Knights, and can't wait for the Acastus Knight, that was […]
The mountains of MDF here are gradually getting smaller as the process of inking, painting and building proceeds at pace. It is much easier to ink and paint the components on the sprue if at all possible. These stairs are for an square Industrial Control Tower, consisting of quite a few levels. Lots more to do.
The team's four Blitzers all have an individual history and when I looked through the old background snippets some time ago, I just realized how much character the most offensive part of the team had. Borag Oldblood is the team's oldest player and by the way, the only remaining player of the original squad, long […]
Picking up a classic, Back to the Future, I bought the bundle blister Heroes 4 by Crooked Dice at Salute last year covering a not-Marty-McFly and not-Michael Knight (the later of course has nothing to do with BTTF). As I thought these would make a great addition to Zombie Survivors. By chance I stumbled upon […]
In the background of the Maulers story, I mentioned that there was a tryout and those of you who have followed the Journey of the Maulers so far, will notice that the following two players are Rikoth and Rotfang. I always like to give the minis a small characterization which is kept open enough to […]
In this post, I take a look at some recent deliveries from Firelock Games. As you can see from the The post Blood & Plunder Arrivals – May 2019 appeared first on Must Contain Minis [MCM].
As I had quite a good impression of the Tamiya kits in the past, and the 1:48 scale vehicles fit well with larger 28-32mm models, I added to the 1:48 Tamiya HUMVEEs and Black Scorpion's Last Patrol a M1A2 Abrams. The kit is usually priced around 26-30 EUR and casted in sand yellow plastic. The […]
After a name and brand bickering, that I first thought was an April fools joke, Footsore Miniatures - who took over Musketeer Miniatures back in the day, came back to their name. With Gangs of Rome, they went with the name of Warbanner and recently Games Workshop got in touch with them, as Warbanner would […]
