Power generator and some soft transport

Power generator and some soft transport

I’ve been more productive in the past few weeks than I have been for a long time. I’ve set up a painting workflow that seems to be helping me get things done. More on that in another post maybe. First off are 2 Matchbox vehicles that will act as generic soft transport. Not 100% happy with the green I’ve used, I think it’s a bit dark.   10 years ago I ordered some 6mm sci-fi …

Taking stock, a quick painting update and future plans

Taking stock, a quick painting update and future plans

It’s been a while since my last update, gaming has had to take a back seat again as real life got in the way. Last year I managed to get some minis. painted and even managed a quick game of Tomorrows War though I’ve managed to loose the pictures and notes from that. If I find them I’ll post them up. Quite a few gamers post their goals and plans for the upcoming year in …

Painted 15mm GZG NAC section

Painted 15mm GZG NAC section

For the first time in a few months I’ve managed to get some painting done, this time it’s an 8 man section of NAC marines. The camo is based on the current MTP pattern used by the British forces but has a bit of a DPM feel to it too. Not the best photos, natural light is in short supply near Glasgow at this time of the year. This is the start of a full …

WIP – A generic desert/arid compound

WIP – A generic desert/arid compound

After a fit of inspiration caused by this thread on theminiaturespage.com, I’ve managed to cobble together a generic 15mm compound based on those seen round about the Middle East. I had already started building 2 Middle Eastern type houses from 5mm foamboard so I decided to base them on a piece of polystyrene (that once supported a pizza) and add more foamboard to build a wall around it. Unfortunately when I was adding a 3rd …

15mm Poundland Treasure

15mm Poundland Treasure

While I was bored the other day I took a wander into my local Poundland and came across these Although they were mainly full of crappy plastic soldiers that aren’t any use for 15mm there were a few items in each that made them worth a gamble for £1 a go. In the military set there was a missile launcherthat could be useful as an objective, a power boat that could be used with a …

Painting update

Painting update

Just a minor update, not had too much time to devote to painting recently. I managed to get some Poundland loot in the form of 4 Matchbox M-ATVs which work out at round about the right size for 15mm. The only thing I’ve really done to them is add a Peter Pig 50 cal HMG to the turret. I’ve decided to paint them green to mane them very generic, they will be used for modern …

Work in progress modern/sci-fi wooden barn scratch build

Work in progress modern/sci-fi wooden barn scratch build

I have been planning to write up an AAR on my first Tomorrow’s War game from a few weeks ago but found something more fun to do, a bit of scratch building. I started work on a wooden barn for modern and low tech sci-fi games, largely inspired by this post on the excellent Sippin’ On Paintwater blog. Here are a few shots of work so far, more to follow as I get time to …

To Fight Another Day – Cutscene

Location – on board the free trader “Dog Star”, approaching orbit around the Amano Mining Corporation colony on Connor’s World. The public line from Amano was that they were exploring some rich mineral deposits found by one of their survey teams. There was some extraction going on but the obvious implication was that it was just another land grab, laying claim to the world before large scale operations were economically viable. But if anyone bothered to …

Solo rules for “Aliens”/Space Demons in Tomorrows War

Finally managed to get in a game of Tomorrows War today and came up with some rough rules for controlling Aliens/Space Demons (delete as appropriate). I’ll post an AAR soon but for now here’s what I came up with to run the aliens. They are still very rough and need lots more work, any suggestions are more than welcome. The stats. used were pretty much the same as in the “Bugs In The Reactor” scenario. …

Now with added moderns

Now with added moderns

First post for a while, as usual real life takes over and hobbies get pushed to the background. Whilst digging through some old boxes I found about 20 packs of Peter Pig 15mm moderns I bought about 15 or 16 years ago. I dug them out and added them to the lead pile with a view to seeing what I could use for sci-fi. Cut to a few months later and take into account my …
