Urban terrain (1)

Made some urban city terrain for 7tv/Black Opps. I wanted to have it useable for late 1960’s onward so have kept thing fairly generic. Also aiming for a decayed feel. Firstly I wanted to make some little piles of rubbish, boxes and black bags. So0 I made a simple template for boxes and some green […]

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. I tried to give them a bit of a retro vibe, with the classic trainers and denims. The boxes are a great sets of minis, […]

First Painted Big T

The Resin Big T minis have began to ship. And we already have one in painted glory. Starship Vorenus contributor and Painter/Modelmaker extraordinaire Carvel has turned his expert hand to produce this excellent mob boss. The brilliant painting on his trade mark flashy shirt is a particular highlight, set off by his snazy red trousers… […]

Introducing Pigeon Guard games

Check out our new miniatures company. Just one release so far, the suburban Mafia man Big T. He’s a modern gangster type, sculpted by Ian Mountain.

Step one Make wire/foamboard/masking tape skeleton Step two bulk out shape with air drying clay Add detail with greenstuff & liquid […]

Kill BIll

When I got my Fist Full of Kung Fu minis back in February I decided that what was lacking from the sets was some kind of lethal female assassin, and it occurred to me how cool it would be to have a mini based on the Bride out of the movie Kill Bill. After looking […]

U.N.I.T. Landrover completed

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 […]

Something a bit different

Something a bit different

Picked up a pack of these cheap on holiday. These are from the Airtfix range of 1/48 modern british army range. I had been vaguely aware of these for some time but to be honest painting moderns is not really something that has grabbed me. However I decided that these could be really useful to […]
