“Groooovy baby”…It was just a question of time before Austin Powers found himself being held against his will, alongside a lot of other 1960’s agents in North Wales!

Typically he has chosen an outlandish blazer and neckerchief combo from the Village stores, he has been given the number 66…which means he might well be a neighbour of Mrs peel (65) !!!!!

Anyway, we love Mike Myers, when are you doing Austin Powers 4????…I think i have a plot for you😉

The figure is actually the same body I used for Number 6 with a head swap and “Green stuff” Neckerchief. I very careful reposed the arms and legs so that the figure looked like he was doing Austin’s mad dance routine from the opening shots of the movie..its as close as i could manage, I’m not a sculpter! very happy with this figure. You can buy the parts I…

Arv 2

Well, its been a while since my last post….but I have made some progress with the village buildings. First on the list was “The Gloriette” which is the centre piece of Portmeirion and features heavily in several episodes of “The Prisoner”.

Now I have the basis of the Piazza I will begin to add a details,  like walls, plants and all the other features, but at this moment I just wanted to take the time to show you the basic builidng itself. The Gloriette is actually a “Folly” and only has the one main wall. The original builidng’s balcony doorway leads out on to a road, which at the rear of builing is at ground level !

Getting this model produced as been quite a long journey from photos and plans through to 3d software for laser cutting. Mike (pigeon guard games) toiled for some time on the detailed sections…

Armed Civillians

These are from the Wargames Factory apocalypse survivors sets. I bought them a few years ago and used the bulk of them then for various projects. I fancied painting a few more.

IMG_9345IMG_9346I tried to give them a bit of a retro vibe, with the classic trainers and denims. The boxes are a great sets of minis, well worth the price if just for the weapons sprues.


The distribution of these has now been taken over by Warlord Games as a part of their Project Z zombie game, which is promising some lovely additions to the range.

Not sure what I will use these with, possibly 7TV, Black Ops or some Dr Who games.

Terrain and Soldiers for North Africa

As the title says, a couple of hills and some painted Perry Miniatures DAK and 8th Army.



Scratch built Adobe mud houses


I have been building up my DAK and 8th Army forces for some time, and have began to think about putting together a few games, mainly based around SAS raiding parties, but more on that another time.

I decided I next need to make some terrain, and set about making a couple of mud brick dwellings.

The first stage was drawing out some simple plans (I did this in Adobe Illustrator, and printed them out)

Then I cut the pieces out of fo an core board.IMG_9058IMG_9059

This done I assembled the main walks. Using elastic bands to secure them as the PVA glue dried.

Next I added some damage to the render and began the stairs


Above is version one of the stairs, I modified the design for the second building…


I used cheap wall filler mixed with PVA to get the render texture.


Finally just painting and dry brushing… And on to building two!
