Dead Man’s Hand: Banditos – Part 2

The turn of the year and the usual duties as a father have led to a small break in our Dead Man's Hand article series. Fortunately, since I did not tackle the project on my own, we will again have a Wild Wednesday occasionally. Finn's introduced his first gang member, Hector Villa,  some time ago. […]

Transporter Detail

The interior gubbins has been finished off, the screens have been added and it is just about finished. I think. The bridge has three screens on the main wall, and looks quite good. The back wall of the bridge has a famous nebula display… The green screen displays are not brilliant, but taken overall, they will have to do. The EVA suits came up very nice. The rear part is the engineering section with some Star Trek screens. The Med bay area with medical bed and medical screens. I may add a few more lengths of wire as it looks quite good. When the lights are on, the red tubes illuminate nicely. Now I need to work on the landing pad for it.

Nearly Done

Some of the large transporter wall decor are separate resin bits, mostly from Ainsty and Antenocitis Workshop. These have been painted as individual components rather than trying to paint them glued into position. I do like Antenocitis power junctions with the tinted plastic tube. Next up are some Ainsty bits, a computer bank, a spacesuit (painted in 2001 colours), some oxygen/chemical tanks and a medical bed. I have cheated a bit and used some printed screen images for monitors dotted around the ship. I still have two more do, but the finished screens have some displays from well known movies and tv. The interior of the ship is nearly finished, I think. I have to hope that some inking and the addtion of the wall components will bring it all together.

Adeptus Titanics – The Titans are coming!

With the 2018 release of Adeptus Titanicus, Games Workshop relaunched the series of the same name, 30 years after its initial release. Adeptus Titanicus covered the battles between the Titan Legions of the Warhammer 40,000 universe in a much smaller scale than the initial 25 later 28mm, the so called Epic scale, where an infantry […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Mascots

It is one of my habits to give each of my coaches a motivational mascot and since I have a fable for Squigs, it was once again a specimen of the red-skinned maws on two legs. The model is from Goblin Guild and captures the atmosphere of Blood Bowl quite wonderfully. Grumbla Boz was pulling […]

Modern Combat Black Dog 1:48 Upgrades

From Czechia with ... some kind of love. To pimp the Tamiya Humvees that I bought last month, I got myself two boxes of Black Dog conversion kits. The Iraq War Accessoires Set (T48034) and IDF Uparmoured Humvee (T48058). I visited the black dog page a couple of times in the past, as they have […]
