work in progress
The summer is over, the holiday is a distant memory, the kids are back at school and autumn is here. It really is time to get my butt in gear and get on with the massive backlog of stuff that needs to be finished, or in some cases, started. Next weekend is Colours and I must resist buying anything. Maybe I will buy something small. Just paints, honest. And some new paint brushes. Well maybe just one new game, Kill Team and that is it, nothing else. Okay, so I am doomed…
After or better said, during, assembling the Landsknechts for the different reviews (Pikemen, Missile Troops and Zweihänders), I tried to get a bit more out of the kit, as with the three boxes, I only got one command sprue. The bitz come from the old command upgrades for the Empire plastic infantry, the drum is […]
I've covered the review on the German infantry in winter gear a couple of days ago and already opened up on the possibilities to convert them, by adding parts from other sprues and kits. Due to the way the miniatures in the Warlord Games kits are cut, it is quite easy to use parts from […]
This is yet another cheap eBay purchase that I thought would make either good scenery or a good flyer for a game, an Avengers Quinjet. I did not buy it new in a box, but this is how it was originally sold… The shape is good, I am not planning to do
So it may be too hot to paint, but as some fellow gamers have mentioned, it is not too hot to make stuff ready for painting. I spent some time in the garden removing zombie bits from sprues and cleaning up the mould lines, just about as much as I could ma
The square Industrial Control Tower can be very tall, as tall as you want to go. It is modular, with most of the bits being interchangeable. One of the ladder sections did not quite work and needed some fixing but generally it looks great with models all
I have actually started the lower hull of the large transporter, but the weather is so nice, I have been spending more time in the garden drinking Gin and Tonic, or when not drinking Gin and Tonic, going out on the old Ducati. But some progress is being m
Small update today to show where I'm at with my Orruks for Shadespire. I know not everyone follows the blog on social media (though you should!), so not everyone has seen the current progress. I wish I were further along too. I started this warband in ...
The upper hull is about done. The nose cone is removable and reveals… …an embarkation point for models. As you can see, I added a few rivets… …and a missile launch module The engines will get glued into a fixed position, when t
It is big, grey and getting painted. I have started with the upper hull and the engines, I wanted to do a multi grey pattern like the Enterprise D, well a bit like it anyway. Advertisements
When I need a break from painting the rather large transport, I am returning to the excellent Westwind Mechs. I am still deciding what colours to go for, one will likely be for my British Steampunk force so may be a patriotic red, white and blue. The othe
I will be painting most of the upper hull of the GR-75 Transporter a few colours, grey and gray. Well I actually have about four versions of grey and plan to paint all the panels in different greys. I have started on the nose section, so if it goes wrong,
Having designed the Industrial Processing Tower based around a Pringles tube, I thought I would design a Pringle-less tower, something that does not require munching through a pack of snacks (although having a couple of teenage girls around always helps i
A short update today for my latest work on Basha, an Orruk for my Shadespire warband. Basha WIP Let's start with some pictures. These are shots I shared on social media, so nothing fancy, just showing the work. If you saw my previous work on Hakka then...
By the time I had finished slapping paint onto the resin Inquisitors car, it was a lot less black and grey than I thought it was going to be. Needs inking. Advertisements
