Ramshackle Games New post apoc 20mm bikers

16 Apr

I admit a liking for 20mm stuff, especially the idea of post apocolypse stuff. I could get well into the scale and genre big time, even so it could be tricky, given the limited options available. After spotting this over on frothers, I had to show you lot.

Which is why this new release from Ramshackle Games gives a bit of hope. Very “Dark Future“, so I can see some of you resurrecting your old boxed sets and using these, especially when the new Mad Max movie comes out (I also it to see a post apoc miniature revival then too!)

Overall, its a great set, and good value too that won’t break the bank either.

Flogging some tat…Check out my ebay auctions!!

4 Apr

Hello my blog reading chums…

Second of the blog posts today seeing as I have a bit of time to write about something,  I’m selling some tat over on ebay, some of which is miniature related, so I thought some of you might care to take a browse.

28mm Slitheen Miniatures!!

 

There’s some 28mm Weird war 1 germans, some Squigherders, 15mm witches, 28mm Slitheen, a bit of vintage ral partha and Skeletons, plus other odds and sods.

Also theres an incomplete D&D boardgame, the Legend of Drizzt, packed full of plastic miniatures (a nice balrog, troll and dragon are in there, as well as loads of quite nice figures!) and interlocking floorplans.

Take a look by going here: Check out my tat!!

I’ll be sticking more miniatures and stuff on over the weekend, so I’ll let you know if there’s anything that might tempt you…!

 

15mm Space Orcs: More and more…

4 Apr

Well, I’ll start by wishing all those reading, a happy easter, hope you enjoy your choccy eggs!

I thought I would start todays blog updates with some extra shots of my 15mm space orc army. If you saw the last post, that just detailed what I had finished thus far. This time, I want to show you the rest of the other bits, although some aint finished, I thought it would be a nice touch to see what my force is growing into.

DSCF3902

First you’ll notice the addition of feral goblins, while these fellers are primarily used for my WFB snotlings, I see no reason not to include them in my space orc forces. They’ll just be a vicious mob of skirmishing cannon fodder, designed to tie up more deadly enemy units, while my other units take care of business. I have so many 15mm goblins lying around, I might have to develop a fantasy version of the goblinoid lot.

DSCF3914

Next up is vehicles. These are a work in progress. I’ve got anothe wartruck, based on a toy 4×4 monster truck. I think it’ll be suitably over the top, and a nice fit with the other. Loads of work to do on it before its done.

Next up is an assault dropship, which is made from allsorts of bits. It did start as another project ages ago, which lay dormant in favour of other things. Fast forward to recent times, I decided to repurpose the original and add more bits (and I’ll probably add more) With these, its starting to feel like an invasion.

DSCF3926

Loads of things to be done on that, but it’ll come together eventually. Bear in mind as well that I have tons of orcs to paint up, drednaughts, runts and bits. Its probably time to think about what I should be doing to put an opposing force together. I do have a not-tyranid-ish force on the back burner, but I think I might have to try either an imperial force or a chaos one…or squats…or genestealer cult..or….!!

 

15mm Space Orc Army: the mob so far…

22 Mar

DSCF3884

Well, I thought I might a well share my progress on my 15mm space orc mob thats finished so far. I still need to get lots more done yet, more mobs of boys including my own lot (from CP models) as well as some GZG ones, more Ogryns, squigs, dreds and vehicles. They’ve ended up quite cool, with a unique feel, which will probably get better when I add the rest.

DSCF3885

DSCF3888

I like the GZG orcy types, while not similar to mine, I find that if you paint them all a putrid green, they look fine! Plenty more of these still left to paint and add, although it’ll take some time (I’m not the fastest painter…)

DSCF3889

DSCF3890

Vehicles and dredds, all I have done so far is these. I’m aiming for probably two units of three dredds, which will add a fair bit of firepower, plus I’ve got a battle wagon (Warbus) about 50% done, and even a dropship, but that’s going to need more TLC. One Squiggoth should suffice.

DSCF3891

These I’ll be adding loads more of (I have quite a few) again will take time, but so far I’m low on actual orcs, plus they need a banner boy. I’ve got a feeling this army will be huge when I’m done.

DSCF3892

Not sure if I’ll do any more ogryns (might save the others for my imperial guard force) I like them, but they don’t feel savage enough (might need to sculpt some… or convert some fantasy ones)

DSCF3893

The boss and his retinue are made up from the ones from CP that I sculpted, as well as  converted 15mm sci-fi adventurers from them also.

DSCF3896

DSCF3897

The gobbos are made up from Magister militum, foundry(?), Pendraken and irregular goblins/orcs. These were just standard fantasy ones, converted with a bit of greenstuff and some neat MJ figures 15mm guns. I still have a few left to finish, including a shit shoveller. Out of everything here, I think I enjoyed these the most. Plenty of character, so I reckon I’ll have to do a big horde of these. I might even use my snotling bases with them (which are also made up from a variety of manufacturers of 10 & 15mm goblins) to add some feral types as fodder (they are based as the 40 x 40 swarms as per WFB, but it shouldn’t matter.) I’ve gotta get some of the Ion age ones yet, as I’m loving the really individual nature of this army.

DSCF3898

DSCF3899

Squigs are a combo of my own from CP, Pendraken Squoggler, and a great classic GW Kev Adams one to give them a truly RT feel. The herder is a converted Pendraken night orc (now carrying a small squig) To add to this section, there are quite a few more squogglers to paint up (even so they are supposed to be 10mm, they fit great here) and a load of CP carnosaurs (looking fine as large blind cave squigs) not to mention my own, might even add a few old GW ones as well.

I’m in sculpting mode presently, so they are all going to have to wait. Maybe I’ll have to make those other orc troop types I’ve been thinking of…

 

Warring States & Qin Dynasty Miniature Range KS Coming soon!

15 Mar

grimace73:

Metal castings light infantry

Watchful-i-studios new KS starts on Monday, and I like the looks of it, very Dynasty Warriors, I could be a convert (but it’d be much better if it were in 15mm…) Anyway, some of the stuff is a dead ringer, although I’d like to see some heroes rather than the fantasy bits.
Just thought you might be interested, so I’ve reblogged this article from their website!

I’ll post a review once the KS is up and running with all the details.

Originally posted on Watchful I Studio:

Watchful I Studio is embarking on our first project. This range of miniatures will be posted on a Kickstarter going live Monday, March 23, 2015 at 12pm EST. We are planning on posting a draft of our Kickstarter to allow the public to give us feedback on the setup and different levels so we can make this a very successful endeavor. This is the first of many armies that we hope to cover during the same period in history with all of the forces complimenting each other. This cohesion will allow players to collect and play games against one another knowing that they are lived and fought around the same time period. Once we have a few armies established we are planning on publishing a set of rules as well as other supporting products.

Range: Warring States / Qin Dynasty (475 – 206 B.C.)

Wave 1: Core Product allowing players…
