Review: Gamers Grass

Anyone who has ever done any miniature modeling or wargaming will tell you there is one essential thing you need to make your miniatures really pop: a decent looking base. It can make or break your efforts. Basing your model is so important, it is said that a bad base can ruin a great paint … Continue reading Review: Gamers Grass

My ‘Mortal Gods’ Project: More Greeks!

And my force keeps getting bigger! The lovely folks at Sherwood Wargames sent along another Victrix set (the Hypaspists) and I have been able to kitbash a bit. I have always loved the Hypaspists because they had a bit of versatility to them; they could be equipped in different and unique ways depending on their … Continue reading My ‘Mortal Gods’ Project: More Greeks!

My ‘Mortal Gods’ Project: Athenian Promachos (Hero)

Moving along on my Mortal Gods project, I wanted to spend a bit more time detailing so I chose a stand-alone figure for my next miniature to paint. Using the Victrix plastics (again, for all US peeps, definitely go check out Sherwood Wargames), I put together a heroic-type character to represent one of the promachoi. … Continue reading My ‘Mortal Gods’ Project: Athenian Promachos (Hero)

My ‘Mortal Gods’ Project: Athenian Hoplites

Here's a quick post for you all. I received my first Victrix plastic kits from Sherwood Wargames (Athenian Armored Hoplites and Greek Peltasts) so of course I had to build a ton of them right away. I constructed a few basic units of everything to start. Being as I have never painted up ancients before, … Continue reading My ‘Mortal Gods’ Project: Athenian Hoplites

Showcase: Konflikt ’47 DAK Walkers

This is a post I have wanted to make but haven't--for who knows what reason (not me; I haven't a clue). As my primary German army is Afrika Korps, I have modeled my Konflikt '47 German walkers/Panzermechs to fit the army. I figured it might be useful to post about them, especially given how trendy … Continue reading Showcase: Konflikt ’47 DAK Walkers

Review: Hero Forge Custom Miniatures

A few years ago when I was just getting back into miniatures, models, and wargaming, I stumbled upon Hero Forge. At the time, they had a handful of options for customization, and the prices were a bit much, but I picked up a couple anyway. I was impressed by their Miniature Designer which felt a … Continue reading Review: Hero Forge Custom Miniatures

Review: OSHIRO Model Terrain (28mm Feudal Japan)

A while ago I came across Oshiro Model Terrain via this amazing website which contains 28mm-scale resin terrain for Feudal Japanese wargaming. I have been sitting on this blog post review for a while primarily because I had ordered more stuff from them and wanted to paint them all and display them properly. Unfortunately real life … Continue reading Review: OSHIRO Model Terrain (28mm Feudal Japan)
