Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

The Skaven team for my Blood Bowl league was built straight from my bitsbox. But these hungry critters ate eachothers tails...

Spare tails are hard to find on eBay so I had to be inventive. There was a certain HeroClix miniature with a tattered cape. I cut it to pieces and there were my replacement tails!



Tec-7 glue is strong and rigid enough to glue the tiny pieces.



I even got a teamname out of this conversion: The Skaven Redtails !

The new kids on the block from GW: Primaris Space Marines.

I'd give them following stats in Warhammer Epic 40,000:

Support:
Primaris Space Marines Squad (1 unit)
20 points per unit
+7 points to add Rhino

Movement 10cm
Range 35cm
Firepower 1
Assault 3
Armour 4+
Rapid Fire, Stubborn

Now lets search for suitable 6mm miniatures... Or should that be 7mm miniatures?

Miniature gaming and collection can be a true addiction. A healty one (if you don't accedentally inhale glue or spraypaint vapours).

I already had a nice High Elves collection, but now and then when I find a bargain at eBay I cannot resist...

Here's the latest batch:


A Phoenix Guard regiment, a cavalry hero, an extra Repeating Bolt Thrower and some loose miniatures to fill incomplete infantry units.

Another spraycan that has been very busy yesterday was YELLOW. I leave it to you to guess which of my armies also got reinforcements...

For years I have been posting my miniature games projects in this blog.

To show ALL my work-in-progress I have started a new feature: a PLOG or picture log. In my new Twitter account @TocosNest I'll post pictures of my workbench only. This way I can share my hobby by providing a view in my man-cave.



I won't be reposting all tweets here. So I advise to folow my Twitter account if you have the same hobby and are interested in seeing my workbench.

This is what I like most about the miniatures hobby: converting. It starts by selecting some bits and pieces from your bitsbox. I had a spare barded horse from Battle Masters and wanted to use it for a High Elf hero.



The legs are metal. The torso and head are High Elf bits.



The arms are from the Tiranoc Chariot sprue. They look fierce on this mounted hero model. The shoulders didn't fit perfectly. That's when my 40K bitsbox came in handy: a pair of (Tau) Kroot shoulderpads!



I tilted the horse backwards slightly to make the miniature more menacing. Tree bark and pebble chips were glued to the 50mm square base*. The horse received Elven feathers as head ornaments.
To make the miniature a true High Elf leader I added a sheated sword and quiver with bow and arrows to his saddle. I also tried to add a cape but it didn't look "correct".

* Why a 50mm square base you ask? Well, in Warmaster 28mm games a cavaly stand is 5cm wide, 5cm deep...

So you want to play Necromunda and include Marvel's Ironman? That's simple, he's a Yeld Spyrer! Easiest rulebook hack ever.

Wolverine a.k.a. Logan (310 credits)

Ganger

Equipment:
2 Power Swords

Toughness +2

Skill 1: Leap
Skill 2: Counter Attack
Skill 3: Berserk Charge
Skill 4: Body Slam


I know I could make him more invulnerable by adding more Wounds, True Grit and other treats. But I didn't want to make him a "super superhero". That role is reserved for Venom and Carnage. Wolverine can be used in scenario based games to do what he does best: close-combat-fighting.
