"Dream House"

I was in the UK a short while ago and happened to go into a "Poundshop"

Sifting through the garbage and tat, you can usually always find something useful in those places and I found these brightly coloured 1/72 scale "Dream houses" - well, actually half a house, you have to buy two to make a full-house.




When I get them painted up they should make half-decent scenery items.

More than "amused", I found the description hilarious :-)

HaT El Cid Almoravid Infantry

Our mate RobH came over on Saturday and he treated us to an excellent game using Impetus ruleset with his collection of Samurai in 15mm.

Apart from putting on a great game, he also brought along some of his painted 1/72 scale HaT Moors that he's based to also use with the same rules, and they are very nice indeed, the pictures of the painted HaT figures speak for themselves.

1/72 Scale / 20mm Plastic LOTR Figures

This was quite a find, these are 1/72 scale / 20mm scale plastic LOTR figures



You have all the main characters from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It came in an dusty old Spanish boardgame that I found in a clearance offer in a big department store some months back.




The running figure with a club is a 1/72 scale Zvezda as a scale comparison.

On the workbench - WW2 Russian Infantry Conversions

Last week I got a two new sets of the new "made in UK" Plastic Soldier Russian and German Infantry. The plastic is nice to work with, hard styrene which is glueable, and cuts easily and can easily be trimmed and sanded.

You can see some of the Russian infantry here with new heads, mixed with Esci and Revell figures for some Russian squads I'm putting together. With the smaller heads the poses mix well with the other Esci and Revell figures.


The heads etc., are just dry-tested / stuck on with a bit of blu-tac, I'll get around to pinning them sometime over the weekend.


Some of the brave figures who donated their heads to the Great Patriotic Cause....
