INQ28 – The Mundalorian

I have built and painted this one in 2009, and decided it is time to new pictures. The bounty hunter "Boba" was created for the Inq28 project.

Oldhammer – Spotting and identifying Recasts

While you're looking for old miniatures on eBay and trading groups the risk of a recast is rather minimal, at least while looking for regular rank & file units in the one-digit value area. Some miniatures tend to be rare and very sought-after, creating prices for a single 28mm miniature of 30 EUR, 50 EUR or in some cases even beyond that on the second hand market. This demand and willingness to pay such prices, creates the interest of mischievous parties to cash in on this situation.

As I am doing the occassional coverage on Oldhammer projects, mostly 40k second edition so far, with a bit of Realm of Chaos, my personal risk is minimal. I bought a lot of the miniatures that are now valued either NIB or second hand from trusted sources. But when I added the Legion of the Damned to my Space Marine lot, of course I thought about Veteran Sergeant Centurius. The model was only available for a brief moment in / around 1996, for the opening of the 100th store in the UK. I am not sure about re-release in the US or Europe for similar events. But the miniature is rare and a real one, ideally NIB, easily makes you 50 to 70 EUR the right time. So I waited and watched the market space and eBay from time to time. I was a bit surprised that the prices dropped below 50 GBP.

Weekend Update CW 20/2020 – Roofing, Backlogs and Lego

Had a bit of spare time on friday night and took up the kitbash of the Laketown House. A more detailled coverage on the build will soon follow. Mixed up a bit of Grey Stuff by P3 and took care of the gaps between the shingles and wall pieces. And as usual, you end up with too much modelling clay.

Gaslands – Nothing to lose

But there is a lot to be won in May in the various Gaslands Facebook groups. It's remarkable how much enthusiasm and creativity the Gaslands community shows and in May there are several competitions and raffles you can participate in.

I will also try my luck this month and take part in at least one of the competitions. Let's see if fortune favors the men from the Chaosbunker this month. But before I go into this in my next article, I would like to give you a short overview of the current competitions and raffles.

Weekend Update CW 18/2020

It's a prolonged weekend this week in Germany, with friday being labour day. A small lot of Dark Elves arrived, to go with my Realm of Chaos project, we had a go at the last missing piece of my Wild West collection and had another Frostgrave review this week.

Gaslands – Roadblocks

To make my future Gaslands table more interesting, I have set out to create a few stylish terrain pieces in a Wasteland style. Originally I wanted to make the track boundaries more visible, as well as corners and obstacles.

Gaslands – New week, new wreck

My latest terrain piece, made from a recycled Nissan Titanium, is finished and I had so much fun with it that I decided to do another piece in the same style right away. This time I won't take a hotwheel apart though. In fact, a recently purchased monster truck was already accompanied by a wreck that has no other purpose than to drive over it.

As you can see I added a few small details to cover a some holes that are actually connectors for other wrecks. To the hole in the front I glued a few rods to make it look like a rudimentary radiator grill.

Post-Easter Weekend Update

Welcome to the post-eastern summary of the week. The week started with the first out of an upcoming series of articles about Frostgrave, that will be dual series, one part covering my unboxing and build reviews, and the other part with Dino gathering his warbands within the Sword & Sorcery adventure.

Within the gap of the review on the Civitas Imperialis kits and the further terrain building, I covered a third party - Troublemaker with their 6mm terrain kits. And I did a review on the Goblin Wolfriders of the Oathmark range. They just announced the new light elf kit, that was supposed to be released on the Salute weekend.

As for Salute, there are a couple of virtual replacements, but they can't replace the tour and guys weekend we usually have in London. But Salute isn't the only event that was cancelled or postponed, just on friday the Tinsoldiers of Antwerp announced that Crisis won't be held in 2020. By that our other "main event", having a similar weekend in Belgium with a half-year gap is cancelled as well. I have updated the event schedule for this year accordingly.

Troublemaker Games Terrain Sets

Troublemaker Games was kind enough to sent me a few samples from their range of plastic terrain sets.

Who are Troublemaker Games? They are a small wargaming studio offering multiple products, among them nuns with Guns and artillery pieces in 28mm. But that is not all, they hosted a few Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns to finance the 6mm terrain range, we'll take a look into today. The range is available through Vanguard Miniatures, who carry further small scale miniature and items.

Gaslands – Pretty broken

On with my first off-road piece for Gaslands. When I disassembled the car, I discovered a little surprise - the Nissan Titan actually did have a music system modelled inside. Although I knew that it would not be seen, I could not resist the temptation to paint it. If I discover such a small addition in one of the Hotwheel cars again, I will probably cut it out and install it somewhere visible on another car.

With the seats, I knew that you could see them through the lowered windows and so I painted the upper side like old, worn leather. I approached the chassis using a proven method, with the windows first.
