A squad of Tankbustas and a bunch of Bomb Squids are complete. Colourful squigs where the only restriction was that none of them were to be red! These squids won’t be moving quickly. The Tankbustas have blue shirts this time. The next squad will have purple shirts.

The Kommandos are done! The squads are divided between the Red shirts and the Yellow shirts. They compete to see which of their chosen squad mates wear the blue jeans or khakis the sneakiest.

Finished the 2 Dragstas in a blue/yellow scheme. To help differentiate, some of the clothing on the crew is different. There is a lot of weathering and dirt in normal Orky fashion.

Progress on the commission. I think this is the last of the Frostgrave scatter terrain… and Goblins, now that I think about it.

Glowforge adventures return with gaming aids! As of this time, we have played 1 game of Frostgrave and really liked it. We plan on playing more, so I have started to design and cut out persistent spell tokens in MDF and Acrylic.

Loving how the Fog spell turned out. Made sure to make it as per the parameters of the spell. 6″ wide, 3″ tall, and 1″ thick. I went for acrylic for the immersion. May look into tinted acrylics to make it look even better.

The wound dials will always have a special place in my heart. Functional doodads! I made 0-9 and 00-99 dials, stuck together by the power of magnets. My tokens are 25mm radius half-circle, and will fit around the smaller dial. Could be used for stacking spells like Call Storm. I’m making the dial’s magnets all the same polarity, so I am hoping to make the relatively interchangeable when I start making different colours and types.

Adventures with the Glowforge lasercutter. This time are pieces of brick wall. I made a couple straight sections and a right angle section. These are 15mm in scale for use in Team Yankee and Flames of War. These are the first iterations and I am currently working on making them easier to put together.

More progress!

A handful of scatter terrain for Frostgrave. This comes in the form of pieces of a market. Various baskets and bags of food, boxes, bricks, and bottles. I am particularly fond of the apples and squash. Adding different colours makes them interesting to look at.

Night Goblin archers were done. I transferred them onto circle bases to for Age of Sigmar compatibility.

Lastly, the Warboss in Mega-armour. This mini is the Iron Boss from Artel W Collectible Miniatures. A fantastic looking piece with plenty of detail.

The first minis have been painted for this commission.

Naturally painted red to go fasta, these Speed Freeks vehicles are a colourful start to the army.

The two shaman are Orruk Shaman from Age of Sigmar, but I believe they are going to be used as different looking Weirdboyz. I made them different skin colours to help differentiate and because I remember Orks have different skin colours to denote age and size.

Genestealer Cults Commission Assembly – Complete May 18, 2019

An assembly only commission for now, and it is complete. Short and sweet for this force.

Genestealer Cults of the Bladed Cog creed. There was some kitbashing for the Brood Brothers, as well as magnetization and scratch building for the tank.

The new Leman Russ kit does not come with heavy stubber or hunter killer missile options (disappointing). So, I had to find some extra bits I had around and found the guns and missiles, but only one mount each. I used styrene strips and rods to make the weapon mounts for a stubber and a missile.

Another fantastic addition to my repertoire of laser cut doodads and trinkets, a 15mm scale modular brick house. It will be the start of the buildings I am designing for playing in Team Yankee/Flames of War, 15mm scale wargames. But since I don’t have Flames of War, it will just be for our Team Yankee Games.

As usual, cut in MDF, I meticulously designed the brick and roofing patterns to relatively fit in the size of the pieces. I still have some work to do as the patterns sometimes don’t translate well into the laser cutter for whatever reason and it skips some lines.

The patterns are scored, the walls and windows cut out. I want to play with the power of the scoring to make the depth shallower. I want to be able to pick out the grout better when I end up painting this.

Looking forward to more iterations of this design. The next thing I am making is a petrol station and a Brick wall.
