A pirate skiff!

This was done a while ago for a friend but I've finally gotten round to taking some decent photos of it.

It's a kit bash of a Red Planet Miniatures Sky Martian skiff along with some scratch built elements for the 'Earther' parts. The guns are from HLBSC (who will be putting them upon his new website soon after they disappeared for a bit).

Although there is an English flag on the mast, it's really owned by an independent trading company under the guise of British traders ad hiding behind the might of the British army on Mars :-)



Greek farm.

Back with the commission work for this post and this time it's an enhanced mdf kit along with a small scratch built shack and scatter terrain.

The kit needed the tiles adding and some texture on the walls and new stone work around the base and steps in and also a scenic base base following one that was sent by the client.

In all honesty, I wasn't impressed by the kit. It went together ok but the design seems rushed. I don't even think it was good enough as a carcass as the walls are only 2mm thick and for a decent model it would be better if they were 5mm or so.

Anyway, onto the pictures :-)



Rebels without a clue

So, another battle report from our Endor mini campaign.

After reporting to rebel HQ, Padawan Michinn and her team are sent back to the moon of Endor to try and gain as much inromation for a secret project the Empire is working on.

Trying a different approach the rebels manage to sneak into a heavily defended area...

The Rebels try to move up under cover but it's not long before they are out in the open and come under Imperial fire.

 The Rebels are again aided by some small, hairy helpers...

Driving up the right wing, Padawan Michinn trys to take the Imperials by surprise with a mad rush into a group of them.

And fails...

 On the left the Rebels manage to start to push the Imperials back.

After seeing Michinn gunned down the remaining Rebels on the right charge into the Imps undetered and inflict heavy casulties.

The left and right sides of the Rebel strike team push through to the centre and manage to force the Imperials back.


With the Imperials in a full rout the Rebel technician manages to get vital information on an Imperial TIE fighter that is undergoing testing. For what is yet to be determined...

So, a win for the Rebellion this time but what secrets will the TIE fighter reveal...

Rules were Galactic Heroes from Wiley Games available HERE

Scatter terrain is fom OSHIRO available HERE

Figures are a mix of Northstar and Wizards of the Coast.

TIE fighter is from Bandai and has had a few bits kitbashed on.


AWI commission

Just a couple of buildings for a regualr client. He'll be basing them himself and they are 28mm :-)



The raid of Karasawa

The sleepy village of Karasawa was quiet with nothing much going, on the outskirts however, aband of roaming ronin were looking for trouble...

Fortunately, an ally of the villages diamyo, was in the area seeking out the local samurai over the issue of splitting the cost of a meal from the previous week.

Quick as a flash, the ronin broke cver and charged towards the Murakami troops and fierce fighting ensued (apart from Yamada Arinaga who ended up chatting to one of the local girls).

Hearing the clash of arms a small force of Sanada rushed into the village to see what the trouble was about.

Seeing that there was trouble in his village, Sanada Yoritomo quickly charged into combat with his faithful retainers and made short work of the ronin (the dice being quite a splendid factor in helping this to come about).

Unfortunately for Murakami Morokiyo, Yoritomo remembered about the splitting of the meal cost and also remembered that he and his retainers only had water all evening whereas Morokiyo's men drank all the sake. He saw this as unfair and set upon the Murakami troops with renewed vigour.

Needless to say, the Sanada men were victorious but Morokiyo managed to escape and will no doubt seek revenge....

Rules used were a variation of Fistful of Lead of which there will be a proper Japanese supplement in the New Year.
