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 […]



Progress Report – New 15mm Hadrian’s Wall range Wall Sections

Jul 2nd, 2010 | By | Category: Rome, Workbench

Continuing the series of Friday updates regarding ongoing new model designs, this week I’m looking at the progress on the assorted wall sections for the new Hadrian’s / Roman Frontier Wall range. There is a small dilemma with this set of pieces, that I’d like to present to you before I discuss the detail, and […]



Progress Report – New 15mm scale Hadrian’s Wall Turrets

Jun 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Rome, Workbench

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, […]

Customers and colleagues who’ve followed Long Range Logistics since I relaunched the brand in 2003, will be aware that for a long time I’ve been talking about the new upscaled Hadrian’s Wall set that I’ve been designing. But first a warning – there’s a lot of pictures on this page, it might take a bit […]



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 […]



Clive’s AWI-village, mid-stage project photos

Clive of the Thailand Old GiT’s wargaming group has sent me some photos of an American War of Independence  (AWI) village that he’s creating using Long Range Logistics 15mm scale model buildings.  I thought it would be a good idea to share them with you.

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 […]



WW2 Thames Estuary Coastal (Maundsley) Forts

Dec 2nd, 2009 | By | Category: European Coastline, Scratch Building

During WW2, the British government built a series of offshore platforms designed by Guy Maundsley, as Anti Aircraft (AA)  defence platforms.  They were intended to provide static defence support for shipping convoys gathering in the Thames shipping channels before transit to their destinations, as well as to prevent inshore raids by enemy surface craft. Abandoned […]
