The question is have you missed me?

So I haven’t blogged for three whole days and I reckoned I should get my finger out and write something again… the reason for me absence, well actually there hasn’t really been one apart from getting tired and going to bed to write something then falling asleep.

So what have I been up too?

First up..I finished the pilots…

I also made a start on the Mantic Deadzone GCPS booster pack. Never have I sworn so much. Luckily there were only 10 miniatures as I reckon 6 heads pinged across the room to superglue themselves to various bits of furniture, curtains and perhaps the dog as no matter how hard I looked they never reappeared!

The Star Saga minis were, if you remember, a single piece casting. The new lot comprises legs, torso, head and weapon/equipment arms. Some of the ones in the pack are metal.

I decided to go for one ranger and made him a sniper. The other guy kneeling is a comms operator. The final one with metal arms is an engineer. The rest are a mixture of carbines and assault rifles. I also built a flamer and a grenade launcher.

The biggest Pain in the Arse was this…

Absolutely no instructions and it came looking like this…

Bits were sticking out from every bit. Now to be fair after a bit of head scratching I worked out what went where, but it did take a bit longer than expected.

I am getting there just the weapon to add to him and then all of armour for the shoulder and the knees. As the arms are in two bits each and then it is causing a few headaches making sure that it is going to fit together.

I decided to go for the big gun, but could have gone for a flamer and chain saw. I felt the former was more Mobile infantry, but I may add a second one to the force at a later date.

My horse went out into the summer paddock yesterday, I started off the journey as a cavalryman and ended up as an infantryman as I had what is technically called a saddle malfunction. Luckily I was able to get off before it went completely awry!

Here he is having a little excited charge about…

He is the black in the foreground.

Right off to tame a triceratops in Ark (our new game for the console).

  1. Glad to see you’re back. I know how hard it is to stay motivated over the long-term. Sometimes you can just post small stuff. That’s always better than nothing I guess. Anyway, keep it up!

  2. I’ve seen through your plan! Don’t blog for three days, then photograph and write about two days’ work and we’ll all think it’s a lot compared to the usual one day’s work!
    Like the pilots and the two heavy weapons! I hate multi-pose kits – it usually means an infinite number of poses that don’t work, but it looks like it’ll be a nice model when it’s done! And nice to see the horses enjoying themselves 🙂
