The brilliant painting on his trade mark flashy shirt is a particular highlight, set off by his snazy red trousers… […]

The Quick and the Dead

Last night my club started a Dead Man’s hand campaign and It was my turn to get stuck in. The game is very fast, violent and extremely cinematic. If you haven’t tried it and like westerns, then get it. It is designed as if each game is a scene in a western movie. Keeping with […]

Scotland Yard’s Horse Driven Gattling Gun

The a set of Perry Miniatures draft Rioters and the beautiful Northstar In Her Majesties Name figure sets tempted me to dip my toe into the wonderful world of Victorian era gaming.

U.N.I.T. Landrover completed

A simple black paint job (dark grey, washed with black) and then some fantastic custom decals. (From Si, Starship Vorenus crew member and author of Si’s Soldiers blog). The black fits nicely with the UNIT theme, and the decals just finish it off. Trouble at the meat market! Bolt Action commandos converted to modern UNIT […]

A Fist Full of Kung Fu: The Yakuza

The other set I got from the Northstar’s Kung Fu range. Tried to get a tiger on the bruisers tattoo… not sure if it is more tigger? These are painted as the come out of the box, just the bases removed. Once again, these were fantastic minis to paint, and are fabulously cast and sculpted. […]
