TT Combat Sci-Fi Scenics – Shipping Containers

11/06/2014 Leave a comment

Back in the summer I backed TT Combat’s fourth Kickstarter campaign and have finally got round to painting some of my pledge.  To start with, I decided to get ready my five shipping containers.

Containers 05

As my new office is by the docks in Edinburgh, I decided to paint my containers in colours common to their real life counterparts.  After under and basecoating I applied a Boltgun Metal drybrush followed by a very liberal glaze (more like a bath) of Agrax Earthshade to really dirty them up.

Like real world shipping containers, these are designed to be stacked.

The doors are deeper cut so if you prefer you can remove them.

What scenery article would be complete without a size comparison?

This terrain will certainly find itself regularly used, I can see applications for Infinity, 40K, Necromunda and Killteam.  I still have a landing pad and a couple of walkways to build, I can’t wait 🙂

You can view The Troll Trader’s full like of scenery and terrain at their website.  I highly recommend giving them your custom.

Infinity – Assembling The Troops

03/03/2014 1 comment

At long last I’ve started assembling the Infinity miniatures I picked up in January from those lovely folk at Element Games.

I decided to start with my PanOceania grunts, sorry, Fusiliers.

And a couple of specialists, a Fusilier Sniper (L) and Fusilier Hacker (R).

I was initially somewhat skeptical once I found out that Corvus Belli still favour making miniatures out of metal however I was pleasantly surprised. The detail was crisp and the models had very little flash and mould lines. They fitted together very well and we’re assembled in no time.

My only gripe is that the single miniature clam packs came with filled slottabases which needed to be cut open.

Can’t wait to start painting them!

I’ll do a proper unboxing tomorrow as Tuesday evenings are when my role playing group meet. It’ll be hard not to as these look awesome.

Infinity – Beginning My Journey

01/19/2014 4 comments

I’ve finally settled on collecting a PanOceania force as part of my first foray into Infinity.  It took me a while to choose between PanO, Ariadna and ALEPH and I suspect that eventually I’ll have a models from them all!  But that’s for another day.

As such, I popped over to Element Games‘s website and ordered the following:

PanO Starter Pack

PanO Fusilier Sniper

PanO Knight Hospitaller with Multi Rifle

Before the inevitable deluge of comments informing me that I’ve made a horrific choice I’d like to explain why I chose these three sets.  First of all, I haven’t actually read the rules.  I did this deliberately as I’ve not had the opportunity to experience the innocent joy of buying miniatures simply because I like the look of them since I picked up my first ever wargaming miniature (an Imperial Guard Jetbike and rider) back in 1992.  For a jaded old soul like me, this was a thoroughly enjoyable, freeing, experience.  Secondly, I thought it would make sense to get the starter set and everyone tells me that I’d be foolish not to invest in a sniper of some description.  As for the Knight Hospitaller, I just really like the model and can’t wait to paint it!

With a bit of luck the package will arrive on Tuesday, I can’t wait 🙂
