Malifaux: Arcanist Steamborg Executioner

by Cain Tiberius on Mon Jul 22, 2013 12:06 am
Here is the Arcanist Steamborg Executioner model which is part of the Ramos crew for Malifaux. Not a model I would have chosen to do. But entering a local competition, didnt get to chose the model. Up side is, everyone had the same model. I chose to also use it for the July PotM entry.


I hand sculpted the base which I'm particularly proud of.

Model Railway Lighting

by Spack on Sat Nov 17, 2012 7:03 pm
Some time ago when I first started building the model railway for my son I said I could add street lights to the layout. I duly spent hours making 2 very simple street lights, but this was somewhat lacking especially as they were quite dull. Today I finally removed them, and installed 20 white LEDs in street lights, station lights, and some interior lighting in buildings. These LEDs were prewired and had resistors fitted ready to use with 12V DC power (which I already had thanks to a left over Netgear router power supply), and cost less than buying the component parts to build myself. After 6 solid hours of work today the lighting is complete!

Take one bendy straw and trim it down to size. Bend a prewired LED, and slide into the straw. Street light complete :D The station lights are made the same way but with much shorter poles.

Progress and Plans

by Jay on Sat Jul 23, 2011 11:15 pm
Though I've not updated this blog nearly as much as I'd liked progress is being made! The fundemental issue was finding the right colours to paint en mass and now I have found them! More over I've also found a technqiue of painting that suits my Helghast perfectly. In the coming weeks expect lots of pictures.

Battle Report: Chaos Fleet vs Imperial Fleet (850)

by Baragash on Thu Apr 07, 2011 10:07 pm
So last night Red Devil and I played BFG, his first game, my third, but I haven't played for 12 years!

I played Chaos:
Styx Class Heavy Cruiser - Ld9
Hades Class Heavy Cruiser - Ld6
Carnage (1) Class Cruiser - Ld 7
Carnage (2) Class Cruiser - Ld8

Phil played Imperial:
Mars Class Battlecruiser - Ld8
Dictator Class Cruiser - Ld7
Lunar (1) Class Cruiser - Ld6
Lunar (2) Class Cruiser - Ld8

We played the basic Cruiser Clash (ignoring the upper points limit per model). We got lots of rules wrong, having both only skim-read them, but we had fun. This is just a brief overview of what happened as I didn't take detailed notes because it takes time to play a game you barely know ;)

Apologies for the picture quality as we were pushed for time.
