Weighing up model scales

I have been thinking about scale recently, mostly because of the upcoming release of Adeptus Titanicus and reading some discussions about how big the titans ‘should’ be lol.

BB-8 The Birthday Cake

Its that time of year again, my lad’s birthday. Another year closer to kicking my backside at tabletop games.

Like last year, I made and decorated a birthday cake for him.  This is this year’s handiwork:

If your partner ever questions why you waste you time on silly toy soldiers, just knock up some thing like this using your hobby skills and watch them eat their words. Or at least your cake 😉
