Italeri 1/72 Scale WW2 German PAK 36 Showcase

 

While I had my terrain Bocage and Planted Field pieces out I decided to take a few pictures to showcase my World War 2 (1:72 scale) models so far.

This is the Pak36 lying in ambush for an unsuspecting Sherman to try and cross the field.

Conan Hyborian Quests Kickstarter


Conan is Funded in 5 minutes and 37 seconds!!

I managed to get the Early Bird Set but only just and I didn't even take the time to see what it included, all I did was open the page find the option and buy it.

So far I am amazed at the sheer volume of minis in the box and it is still rising with every stretch goal.

At this moment it is $325 000. BUY THIS GAME!


 




Cant wait..

I managed to get to my terrain box and liberate my Bocage and Planted Field pieces and decided to take a few pictures to showcase my World War 2 (1:72 scale) models so far.

Just click the Terrain Tag on my blog to find out how I made them.

Conan - Hyborian Quests



I watched the Conan - Monolith Games Live Chat on 'Beasts of War' yesterday evening and I am looking forward to seeing this Kickstarter go live. I have been keeping my eye on the pictures an updates coming from Monolith and the sculpts are truly beautiful.




I have come close to backing several Kickstarter projects, the latest was Fallen Frontier, but never actually put my money down. Conan however is dear to my heart and I know this will be my maiden swim into the realms of Kickstarter and I cant wait.

The artwork is just as beautiful to behold from Adrian Smith. Just look at these:




I am not a board gamer as such but I want these minis so badly that I am hoping it will also get me to enjoy the board game as well.

The game board itself looks less appealing but as I said I cant speak from experience not having ever played more than Monopoly, Cluedo and Risk as a kid. The picture below however did make me sit up and look at the terrain possibilities of the game. I love making terrain and this looks promising.

Below is a Game Tile and an attempt at making the Tile into a 3 Dimensional Board.



Imagine what you could do with this Tile?


Here is another great example of the Swamp Tile and an attempt  to make it real.



I really cant wait! any takers?

40k Night Lords


I have been anticipating the release of Konrad Curze for some time now because I have been thinking about experimenting with my 'wash' technique again on this chapter scheme. I thought the model was launched with less fanfare than it deserved.

I also think it is one of the best Primarch sculpts so far. A possible rival for Konrad is this awesome posed model below.


Stay tuned to see how my experiment turns out in the next couple of posts.

New Blood Angels - Knights of Blood

 
If you have not been living as a hermit somewhere you will have seen this news. For me it is just what I need to get my Knights of Blood Army off the ground.

The new Sanguinary Priest looks awesome! They will sell millions just for the chalice alone I think, I will be one at least..lol

Here are my test models to get the colour scheme the way I want it.


And here is a Librarian Conversion for my Army.


Let the buying, converting and painting begin!!
