Ion Age Habitation Geo Shelter

I picked up these Geo Shelters (as well as another 3 variants) from Ion Age when they came out a few months back. They were nice resin models with only one issue really - the undersides were a little uneven. After cleaning they were undercoated with halfords grey primer and then airbrushed with Vallejo brown sand and Iraqi sand, washed with GW agrax earthshade and a few details picked out.

Some NSL troops for scale

Hopefully I'll have the other 3 finished and photographed next weekend.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

NSL Armour

The NSL troops are finally finished and they need some armour support. I chose two different types for some variety. I decided to airbrush both of these and I m quite happy with the end result even though I haven't used an airbrush in about eight years and the 25 year old compressor still worked fine.

First up is an 8 legged walker MBT with a big gun! The kit comes with three gun options.

The second vehicle is a Cougar Main Battle Tank (tracked) and again it came with three gun options - not sure what gun I've gone with but I like the look of it.

And here's a picture of the two side-by-side.
The only issue I have is with the ariels. I used thin wire but they've kinked to easy. Next time I'll either go for a thicker wire or melt a plastic sprue.

Thanks for taking a look

NSL "PKaZ" Powered Armour Troops Heavy Support Weapons & Hand Weapons

I took a couple of days off at the beginning of the week to get over the last cold that was hanging on and to catch up on some sleep, I returned to work on Wednesday worse than I felt on Sunday. The kids had bought some nasty bug home from school again and all I felt like doing this week was photographing the last troops for the NSL.

   Hand Weapons

Heavy Support Weapons

 The whole team

Hope to have a couple of armoured vehicles on here in the next couple of days - cold permitting.
Take care.

A show and a sad day

On Sunday I took the eldest boy to WMMS for some R&R This was my first visit to the show and mightily impressed I was. A good size show with plenty of traders and some lovely games. We even had a dabble with the Peter Pig PBI game and after two turns my 6 year olds dice rolling was putting me to shame and his Russians were taking down my Germans. 
We both had a nice time and came away with a few buys. 
A show to keep in mind for next year though if truth be told I only went there as I forgot the date of the Overlord show and only checked the web the day after it was on !doh

Here's a pic of my loot.
 A box of 5 x 15mm Marders (and variants) from the Plastic Soldier Company, the new version of Peter Pig's PBI rules and Company Architect book and 14 packs of Peter Pigs AWI French infantry.

And on sadder note an author who has brought me so much joy in his alternate Disc World has taken Death's hand - RIP Sir Terry Pratchett
