State of Play – New Years Resolutions for 2012

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Uncategorized
In 2011, on this here blog, I vowed to finish up the models I had before buying anything new. I was about 87% successful in that endeavour... If im generous... VERY generous...

But thats a record for me none the less, one I am still intend to best in 2012.

Looking at the suspected 2012 release listings (TAU! TAU! TAU!), I am setting myself the following resolutions:


Merry Gutsmas!

Ho, ho, ho, merry Gutsmas to you all!

While we have been busy dispatching a lot of companies have been introducing new products. So here's a quick run-down of what you may have missed.

Scibor's Sci-fi Templars arrived along with conversion kits, quirky Christmas Ogres and some random ornaments.

Tonnes of new Dystopian Wars products came as each faction received a heavy flyer, corvettes and gunships.


The complete 15mm Zveda  range arrived. Their models are only £2.75 and if you buy 10 you get one free.

Plastic Panzer IIIs and Stugs arrived from the Plastic Soldier Company.

2 new books arrived from Flames, Red Bear and Grey Wolf. They cover the late war period from a Soviet or German perspective respectively.

Lastly coming in later this week are new Privateer Press goodies including the the Circle Fulcrum and plastic Shocktroopers.

Something in the water perhaps?

The battlesof the Iron Kingdoms are getting a digital installment, as are the deniziens of Confrontation's world.

Now Reapers Minis has annouced some cyber cloning of its IPs too:

sunday painting session

Hey there guys. Are you tired of not having a painted army? Do you wish to improve your skills with a brush ?

Starting in the New Year, every Sunday I will be starting group painting sessions. Not only will you get the chance to show off your painting skills each week, we will be sharing painting techniques and tips so we can all get the best out of our miniatures.

All you need to do is bring down your paints, brushes and your latest project, grab a seat and paint.

Not only will you learn new skills but you get the chance to meet new people and even arrange to play games and share tactical tips.

So come down on a Sunday, kick back and get your Picasso on.
