Flintloque Undead - part five



Another quick update on this slow project. I've started the uniform painting, mainly dark green and some brown but as mentioned in the earlier post I know that this is going to be a tough ask to get all nine figures finished before the end of the month.



Hopefully I'll find some time soon.

Now that's what I call a birthday cake!



This morning I woke to this fantastic birthday cake - a Flash Gordon crashed rocketship cake. Thank you Jen.

Flintloque Undead - part four



This particular project is moving forward a little slower than I would like (other work related issues are taking priority) but I have undercoated all nine models ready for the first layers of real paint.


The undercoat is a mixture of Charred Brown from Vallejo and Chaos Black from Games Workshop - I find that a pure Chaos Black is a little too stark.


Hopefully, I can find time to proceed with the painting in the next couple of days.

TERRAIN ESSENTIALS from The Terrain Tutor



Mel Bose The Terrain Tutor has a Kickstarter.

Terrain Essentials is a planned book detailing how to build terrain and a book that I have no hesitation in recommending. I have watched most (there are quite a few) of Mel's videos and look forward to seeing his first book.

For full details of how you can support this Kickstarter (which was fully funded in less than seven hours) see this link.

Good luck and thank you for all the inspirational videos.

Following on from my earlier posts detailing that this Pen & Sword book is now available to order, I have been asked for further information, particularly the contents of the book.

I have taken an image of the CONTENTS page and have reproduced it here.

A Christmas Store Hut - my latest article for W, S & S issue 101



Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy issue 101 included a two page article written by me. A Christmas Store Hut shows how I re-purposed a cheap 50p Christmas tree ornament that I picked up at the Bewdley railway station on the Severn Valley Railway into this characterful store hut for use in my Flintloque games.


Full details of the magazine can be found here.
