Home of Laser Cut Styrene Building Kits - Robust, economic, modular, war game terrain models.
Take the tedium out of scratch building and produce quality table-top terrain incorporating recycled household rubbish.
Soon to be released Grymn (space dwarf) Admiral from Hasslefree Miniatures, painted by the obscenely talented Iacton over on the Forum of Doom Here.
I notice from my followers list that there are a number of people joined now that are NOT war-gamers or role-players or even painters of toy soldiers, and you may be a little non-plussed by what you are doing here, tempted as you were by pictures of fairy castles and wizard towers made out of Pringles tubes... So, just to get this in context the figure beneath measures just 22mm from sole of foot to top of head.
I went to the International Plastic Modellers Society (IPMS) show at Telford yesterday and had a good couple of hours wandering around the models. I'm not really interested in the WW2 and modern aircraft and armour, but there were a few sic-fi models on display.
Bargain of the day was picking up an AMT model of NC1701E for just £14.99 rather than the £35 retail price tag.
Never made a Star Trek kit before, but I now find myself wanting all of them!
Another highlight was my son buying his first model kits. An Airfix Tornado GR1 (because Daddy used to work on it) and a Alligator Russian helicopter kit (because it looked cool). work on the tornado began this afternoon around the kitchen table, pictures later.
Finally I also discovered the Berna Multiclamps. These are by far the most useful "extra pair of hands" I've ever owned, simple precise and incredible versatile. Thoroughly recommended!
They are available under the Model Craft Brand (PCL8710/2). I bought two pairs (large and small), but they're so good that I want more!
In the depths of my seemingly bottomless obsession with the scifi dwarfs (Grymn) from Hasslefree miniatures, I sometimes find myself lost in thought of "what might be". This kind of reverie is nourishing for the soul, however of much greater disturbance are those "things that almost are". Figures that we know, and have known for some time, are already in design.
I refer you to these...
And, whilst it feels a little churlish to mention it yet again but after a five year wait I don't think it's too unfair... This...
Ok, so 14 figures on a CD base was wildly optimistic, considering I can only just get the tank chassis on here ... What was I thinking. So I'll have to come up with an alternate base idea.
Anyway I started kit bashing the Macross Attack Tomahawk. I wanted to remove the long arms and make the torso squatter, and I decided to double up the guns. These are held on with plasticine right now, but a little placard and they will be moveable and posable.
