Yup, investigating a Napoleonics game: Napoleon At War. The 18mm scale miniatures are nice. The infantry box I opened appears to have every miniature intact (pretty good for about 60-80 figures crossing the ocean. An odd thing is that the game materials advertise, but it appears that they’ve either lost their domain, or failed […]

Turner Watercolor Travel Box

Just a quick note for those that need help with their travel-kits. Laszlo Jakusovszky of Hot Lead Miniature Painting had a steam-punked out version of this at the 2011 Reaper CON and I just had to have one. There are several sizes, I purchased a large one so I could also bring the basic prepping […]


A few of the local gamers are playing Privateer Presses’ Warmachine and Hordes tabletop games. Seeing as how I already had a few Cryx ferreted away in the closet, I purchased a little bit more and now have the following sets/figures. Wish me luck in getting these assembled and painted so I can lose due […]

LAMI Squad completed

My first Light Armored Mobile Infantry Squad painted to match the movie’s color scheme. Now to complete 2 more so I can field a legal platoon!

Starship Troopers The Miniatures Game: Rippler Paint Scheme

I’m fairly certain this will be the paint scheme for at least one unit of Ripplers. It is not based on anything from the Starship Trooper Chronicles Saturday morning serial, but it’s vaguely reminiscent of what we called “Mud Daubers” when I was younger. No telling how accurate we were with the name, but I’m […]

Starship Troopers Miniatures progress report

I’ve just completed my first arachnid warrior milestone of 30 miniatures completely assembled and painted. In celebration I am sacrificing 3 LAMI troopers to the small horde of 30 warriors. nom nom nom! crunchy troopers!

Starship Troopers Chronicles Easter Egg

I found an Easter egg in the made for TV saturday morning Starship Troopers Chronicles. It’s the episode where C.H.A.S. rescues Higgins. Check it out:

Starship Trooper Miniatures

I’ve always meant to collect Starship Troopers Miniatures and finally bit-the-bullet late 2010. Never being one to work on one army at a time I’m working on each of the three published armies. Wish me luck. Yes, I’m interested in some of the more unusual figures, so drop me a line if you have some […]

One of my first miniatures

The first mini I ever painted. At least I *think* he was the first. The character name was Thighter. Don’t ask what I was thinking. If I recall correctly, I bought this one somewhere between 1980 and 1982. He was out of the Heritage Dungeon Dwellers Knight 4-pack (Product Codes 1202 A-D). If you search […]

Sculpey Clay Extruder

Also known as the Sculpey Clay Gun (in UK). I recently purchased this extruder with the intent of improved or quicker base preparation. Of course, I have to spend some time learning what does and does not work. Wish me luck! Front of the package: Back of the package:
