E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne. 20th May 13

by Cain Tiberius on Mon May 20, 2013 10:58 pm
Hey folks.

I'll start by saying, I'm not hugely into historical modelling. I prefer Sci-Fi and at a push, Fantacy. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy watching war movies / series and documentaries. And I have built model aircraft both WW2 and more recent over the years. But as far as table top is concerned, it never interested me.

However... After having a couple demo games that I really enjoyed, and seeing the level of interest that Bolt Action is gaining at a local gaming store... I decided to get a bit of a small force. My favourite WW2 show has always been Band of Brothers. I don't know why, but it just clicks with me. So my first set has to be the Screaming Eagles.

The set is of 21 men and includes:
An Officer, Platoon Sergeant, Radio Operator and a Medic.
10 Parratroopers including 2 Sergeants. 1 with Thompson, the other with M1 Carbine. The othe 8 have M1 Garands.
2 man .30 Cal LMG team. 2 man Bazooka team. And a 60mm Mortar with 3 crew.

On to pictures. To be noted before anyone...

Reforming The Guard

by Jay on Tue Dec 25, 2012 5:13 pm
Earlier this year I talked about how my guard army is well anything but an army, it's basically a couple hundred upainted/stripped models with bits missing and all kinds of amateurish conversions that in retrospect are total crap. I also had the problem of getting the Ebay itch back when I started the hobby in '07 (I blame King and his wonderful FW cupboard) also it didn't help that Apoc came out roughly the same time and thus I ended up with more Leman russes and Chimeras then I know what todo with. I also hate the Russ design. This leads me to several problems. I've got way to many unpainted, half destroyed models and with the recent small revolution in bitz providers, I have surplus models and kit! So I've decided to sell most of my guard and start again from scratch, well not total scratch.

My plan is pretty simple, use up all the loose bits of cadian kits I don't intend to use and put together a couple of 'Battleforce' boxes worth of points, paint and dip and flog on ebay. In the...

Predator P1 Bio 1/4 scale 3D modelling continued

by Spack on Thu Mar 26, 2015 9:01 pm
Initial modelling details can be found in blog/Spack/predator_bio_mask_14_scale_modelling_b-176.html

I finally got around to working on the 3D model again, and have reached a point where I'm happy with the details and have prepared the model for printing. As well as finishing the interior venting details, the hose connector on the left temple was replaced with something closer to that used on the NECA Big Red figure (the Big Red bio is almost identical to the original P1 helmet, the only differences being the two half spheres on the forehead and the colour), and a small hose connector detail was added to the left cheek (this detail is missing from the NECA bios).

BA Blog 23rd Dec 2012, 2 Vindi's, 1 Whirlwind, 1 Baal Pred

by Cain Tiberius on Sun Dec 23, 2012 11:36 pm
Howdy folks

Ok so this last couple weeks I've gone a little tank crazy. I have four new additions for your viewing pleasure.

First up are two Vindicators. The first one was an eBay rescue. I'd already striped the paint best I could before this pic was taken. Unfortunately it didn't have any tracks, fortunately I had some IG tank tracks in my bits box (no idea why) and I was able to make them fit. I also had so of the old metal Vindicator parts. Add a couple choice pieces from eBay and some plasticard, and you have a MK1 Vindi :)

So I'll be off to Salute 2011 on Saturday 16th April. Going to be catching up with Mantic, Forgeworld and KR and a few other stands whilst I'm there.

And whilst I'm there I'll be picking up the following that I just ordered for collection:

3 of these...
