The Wednesday Gallery

As I'm back into the swing of things with the blog I figured it was time to get all the usual regular features going which means the un-boxings and reviews will re-appear, I'll be doing Sunday round-ups and of course we'll have to make sure that there's a nice Steampunk (or occasional Gothic or Cosplay) every Wednesday for those of you interested in such things.

As usual if you're not interested in such things but come here for the hobby features then there's plenty of those to find in the various links at the top of the blog and in the sidebar.

No theme this week. Just some miscellaneous portraits....






Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Well It Is Still December... (Part 2)

Basing makes all the difference and with the exception of the Komainu for whom I'll be ordering some Wyrd Games 40mm 'Asian Zen' base inserts all the models assembled in this post here are now based.

Most of the models have a fairly generic sand base with the exception of the Lone Swordsman who is on a 30mm Asian Zen base insert that I had left over in one of my many containers of stuff and the Brotherhood of the Rat models who have been based in the same style as the Hamelin crew with which they'll be being used and my original metal Hamelin crew here. There's a 'sort-of' tutorial for how I made them here should you be interested.

I've also put the summoning magic from the Hamelin set onto a 40mm base done in the same style that I will be using as a Rat King proxy.

Additionally in a 'good news, bad news' situation I got a letter through my door telling me that my long awaited Black Friday order was available to collect from my local post office. The reason I'm going to have to collect it however was because I've been hit for custom charges. It happens occasionally with other companies when I order from abroad but for some reason it happens every bloody time with a Wyrd Games order...anyway...

That means that I've got a busy few days of photography and model assembly ahead of me which will be interrupted only briefly by an Iron Kingdoms RPG session on Saturday.

Thoughts and comments are ( as usual) most welcome.

STORYLINE OP'S! Attack Wing Storyline OP's Continue

The D&D Attack Wing: Rage of Demons and Star Trek: Attack Wing – Temporal Cold War Events continue this January with the final month of the storylines. The excitement has built up over the past few months and it all culminates into these final scenarios where players will have the opportunity to win the grand prizes!

In D&D Attack Wing: Rage of Demons, the campaign adventures through the Forgotten Realms continue with the introduction of Demogorgon, the most fearsome demon lord from the Underdark. Players will need to banish the demon from the tabletop but be wary of his powers or they may fall victim to his controls.

In Star Trek: Attack Wing – Temporal Cold War it is Zero Hour and players won’t be able to resist the temptation of bringing home the Xindus/Xindi Reptilian Warship Competitive Prize or the Temporal Cold War Grand Prize Card Pack.  To do so, they will need to destroy Sphere 41 in hopes of stealing the Xindi Super Weapon to attack Earth.
