Dungeons & Dragons 5e

We are in the middle of our 6th lockdown.  looking for anything to do that keeps us in human contact.  With no gatherings of any sort allowed physically one of the Monday Knights offered to GM some D&D.   For me the last time I picked up D&D was in 3rd

King Leonidas of the Spartans

Just one figure in this Mythic Battles Pantheon update. This time it is one of the hero figures: King Leonidas. You might recognise him as he’s gained a fair bit of notoriety as a bit of an arse-kicker. I don’t have a huge amount to say about him, so I

5 Hoplites for Mythic Battles Pantheon

A little continuation of the Mythic Battles Pantheon project. Another troop unit, but this time it’s time for some Hoplites. Now, historically the Spartans would have been called Hoplites (and also probably would have had a spear as their primary weapon) so the last post and this one are a

Aeronautica Imperialis Tau Tiger sharks

Not a long post today; a bit of a continuation of our last post. Along with the Barracudas from last week, I also painted a few of the larger Tiger Sharks. The colours are identical to the Barracudas from earlier. The larger surface area let me do a little more

Dwarf Blood Bowl Team

My first project for the year and it is my Dwarf Blood Bowl Team by Games Workshop.   It has been a long time between projects well over six months and this one was just hanging there for some time.  Part of the problem is motivation, I have not been motivated

Aeronautica Imperialis Tau Barracudas

Our group has been playing a bit of Aeronautica Imperialis of late as we slowly start to come back to gaming. In previous posts we’ve featured some Ork and Imperial planes. This time it’s the turn of the Tau. An advanced race of Aliens with sleek looking aircraft that apparently

Flames of War US Armour Tank Crews

Another batch of vehicles for this commission. I spoke last post about the two different crews (or at least crew appearances) that were included. Today it is the turn of the ones wearing tanker uniforms. First up we have some M10 Wolverines; these are open top tank destroyers. So you

Making Tropical Scatter Terrain

A long term goal of mine is to build a tropical island game board for my 28mm games of Star War Legion (Scarif) and Legends of the High Seas. The most obvious part of the landscape of any tropical paradise is palm trees and other lush ferns and bushes. So

Making Fantasy City Board Tiles

My main motivation for this project was to make a modular 3 foot by 3 foot board for Frostgrave. I’ve played plenty of Frostgrave in the past but I have never had the feeling of fighting in the streets of a fantasy city with the usual gaming mats I use.

Flames of War US Armour – Infantry Crews

The next part of the US Army tank project is done. This chunk contains the vehicles crewed by US Army infantry uniformed figures. I’m not enough an expert to know whether there was any difference in the organisation of said vehicles, but in Battlefront‘s kits they included crews come differently

Flames of War US Armour – Tanks Alone

Another fairly meaty project I’ve taken on. This one is 20 WW2 American armoured vehicles. A mix of Half-tracks, tanks (mostly Shermanns) and self-propelled guns. They’re all by Battlefront from their big starter box. I’ve finished most of the tanks, but not the crews. And with a number of open
