I've been trying to fit in some miniature painting over this last week, I admit that it's been ages since I've had time to get some colours on any of my miniatures, so with a bit of inspiration from my lead haul I attained from triples a few weeks ago, I thought it was about… Continue reading A bit of painting does you good!
Well, the UK press are at it again, and I don't just mean talking crap and hacking phones, this time us wargaming bods are under attack.

(Remember the stitchpunk fantasy football sackboy team?) I'm not familiar with Gamingfunder, but the principle is pretty… Continue reading Crowdfunding Spotlight: TOR gaming Relics reinforcements 2 on GamingFunder

The Clukkatrix and the chukk being the examples I'm referring to (in the photos), but I do get asked just why my creations come about. Simply put, the things around… Continue reading Taking inspiration from life….
