Focus isn't our strong suit in our little gaming group, so Dan & I figured why not start a Dakka plog to show what we're up to? There will be various themes here, but all will be the united by the love of little plastic soldiers and the hatred of spending money..

Step forward 1/72 40k:



https://skinflintgames.wordpress.com/2016/04/19/da-skooderia-pt-2/ - Da Skooderia Ferrorki, Evil Sunz Warband

Khornate Chaos Cultist

Guardsman of the Hazzard 1977th

Our own 1950s retro sci fi/ WW2 mishmash, Apocalypse Earth:

featuring the noble Atlantic Alliance defying the evil hordes of the Holy Soviet Empire.. at least sometimes..

Apocalypse Earth's steampunk/VSF/fantasy cousin, Hyperian Wars:

https://skinflintgames.wordpress.com/2016/09/

The skirmish/RPG Apocalypse Earth: Black Ops spinoff:

https://skinflintgames.wordpress.com/2016/04/

And not forgetting our guilty love of 2nd Ed Space Marine!

https://skinflintgames.wordpress.com/2016/12/26/im-dreaming-of-a-green-xmas-epic-space-marine-battle-report/

Over the last 18 months or so our modelling skills have come on apace, largely thanks to many of the posters here on Dakka. Hopefully we can post the odd thing you guys will enjoy, and the karmic balance will be complete!

So post battle report, I've been tidying up the marines, rebasing them with a mix of dust and flock, and the difference is just off the scale. Thoroughly recommend as an alternative to straight flock.

Almost forgotten about this

Right, who wants to see scratchbuilt Rhino, giant spider, fold away urban terrain board and some cool urban terrain scatter pieces? All made for the princely some of £0?

Built another hill having followed the "Dynamic, Craggy Hill" article on here, also having watched The Terrain Tutor channel and Lukes' APS "The Extra Mile" video series (thoroughly recommend these to all terrain builders: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN16RxVNrvc and https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsmD5774MOQhjYBkXqu3Jdw )

Anyway, hill including WIP shots:

Finished upgrading a ruins piece of terrain originally made from a wine box and some paper mache... now reworked with filler, detailing, textures etc. Used cocktail sticks and guitar string off cuts for the cables and rebar rods.

Earlobe deep in doo doo

What are the Crimson Fists based on?

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Leftover 1/72 Vietnam War US infantry- cardboard for chest plate, green stuff for shinpads, pauldrons and beaky helmet. Not exactly Forge World quality, but good enough for a fun game!

Thanks man, I think the papercraft template was actually for 28mm but it's made for a monstrous centrepiece! He's packing dual anti-aircraft machine guns, a power fist with attached flame thrower and a lightning launcher so LOTS of short-range assault firepower... Let's see if he survives his first game...
