eBay UK to put all wargames scales back into one category

Sep 11th, 2010 | By | Category: Top News

Throughout 2005 and 2006, professional wargames traders such as Lea from War-Painter, myself, and many others whose names I’ve not remembered, lobbied eBay UK to split out the main wargames figures categories by scale.  It took some time, and back then eBay UK staff were willing to take advice from their pro and powerseller customers.

Workbench Preview – 15mm Norman Plank Bailey Series

Jul 9th, 2010 | By | Category: Workbench

Apologies for being a little late this week with another preview from the buried treasures unearthed when I recaptured my design bench a month or so back.  I’d completely forgotten about this set, which was started something like 5 years ago and had been boxed up amongst models to return to, for about half that […]

Last week, I previewed the upcoming Porta Secundus Limes / Triarus Civica for the forthcoming Roman Frontier (Hadrian’s Wall) range of 15mm wargames buildings, currently on the design bench.  This week, again with copious research notes, I’m looking at the wall turrets which appeared at 500 metre intervals between the mile-forts along the frontier wall, […]

Mission Not Impossible – Design Desk Recaptured

Jun 11th, 2010 | By | Category: Top News, Workbench

For far too long now, my design desk has been a prisoner of the enemy.  My wife captured it about 18 months ago and was using it as a “clutter depository”.  Last month, I decided it was time to send in the Search and Rescue squad. The occasion of my wife taking the kids off […]

Magic Wash Redux – Johnson’s Klear Renamed

Mar 2nd, 2010 | By | Category: Painting and Basing

Some people, including wargamers and even “Pro-painters” may never have heard of Johnson’s Klear, or even of Magic Wash, but to hundreds of thousands of figure painters worldwide, it’s been a godsend that has allowed them to significantly improve their finished painting quality. Here in Thailand, I’ve been trying to get my hands on some […]
