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. However it is also because I want to build up some terrain, add some interesting items to bases, that kind of thing – and not just for Titanicus, but across all my game systems. So I played about with a spreadsheet to work out the dimensions of various items at various scales. I’ve actually had this spreadsheet for a couple of months now, but never got round to typing this up. I figured somebody out there might find it useful too, so is here my blog post about model scale.

In my last post I assembled the Creality Ender-3 3D printer I bought with my birthday money. In it I mentioned a Kickstarter project, the Chicharra SciFi Hopper, being the impetus for getting the printer in the first place.
Now you get to see the printed product. Continue reading
Time for something different – no I’m not starting a Podcast, or creating a You Tube Channel* – I’ve treated myself to a 3D printer for my birthday. If there is anything I am good at it is finding distractions from current projects, and this has gotta be the mother of all distractions – or at least the rapid prototyper of all distractions.

I’m fickle, I flit between models like a butterfly does flowers. The latest shiny to catch my eye has been Tunguska. I have indeed caught a ride on the Tunguska Bandwagon, for the moment. Continue reading
I managed to win a recent event, much to my surprise, held at a local gaming store (Harlequins). There was a nice little stash of prize support, I picked up a Foxtrot. I really fancied painting something in a camouflage pattern.
This post is about how I painted up the Foxtrot with boarding shotgun.
When my friend first picked up Infinity, it was effectively a coin flip between Panoceania and Nomads as to which force I started with. Blue is my favourite colour, I liked both the Pano and Nomad background story, I really did like the Tunguska background. Anyway blue won out, and I painted up Pano as you’ve seen throughout this blog. However, what you haven’t seen is a secret little stash of Nomads – the only ones of which got as far as undercoating were the Interventors; Tunguska in the making!
I bought the Tunguska starter box from Goblin Gaming and I picked it up from the sorting office this morning. So I thought I would share one of my favourite bits of the hobby with you – getting a first look at the models straight out of the box.
Its that time of year again, my lad’s birthday. Another year closer to kicking my backside at tabletop games. He already sometimes “plays” X-Wing with me – he seems to be turning into a Star Wars fan, even though he has never seen the films lol. 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 😉
