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 …

Objectives

Objectives

I’ve now finished off the miniatures for all three random objectives in my opening game. One is from Khurasan’s “Biscuit Ship Experiment” pack and the other is a GZG ‘Crusty” alien. The Khurasan figure could also double as a “Dear Leader” type individual if painted khaki or olive green or perhaps could fit into their spy-fi range as a villain. The plan for my scenario is for a starship crew to investigate a distress signal …

The Man In The Grey Suit

The Man In The Grey Suit

Wherever there are corporations there are men in suits, but what secrets does this one know? He may or may not be an objective when the crew of a free trader on a routine supply mission pick up a distress beacon on an out-of-the-way corporation mining colony. There will be one randomly determined objectives to rescue from three possible options, the robot in the background will be part of another one. Poor pictures taken with …

More painted Space Demons and the crew of the Free Trader Dog Star.

More painted Space Demons and the crew of the Free Trader Dog Star.

I’ve been a busy little bee tonight and managed to finish off the basing on all 24 Space Demons and a ships crew made up of GZG Free Trader crew pack and Splintered Light Armed Space Crew. I’m actually quite happy with the way the basing turned out, it was a spur of the moment experiment that worked. Here are all my scary Aliens And the crew of the Free Trader Dog Star. Only some …
