Men of Minas Tirith - Revamped from the Dust

   Hey guys, a few months ago (back in September), I picked up a second hand GW case with some LotR minis in it.  I decided to get to work at revamping the 'splodgy n'dodgy' paint job that was done on them. All I simply did was washed the armour with some black paint, overbrushed some Mithril Silver, and really just block coloured on the black, gold, skin, and brown. Took me no longer than half an hour!


Comparison of old and new paint jobs


   And, last of all, today I'm going down to my local (ish) shopping centre, so I'm gonna be picking up some WW2 28mm tamiya models, and a fine cast mini or two, so I'll give you the run down on Citadel Finecast very soon!

EM4 Miniatures: Universal Plastic Spaceships Review

  Hey, I know it's been a while, but you'll have my unmentioned Dark Eldar force upcoming, so i won't be short of stuff to write about! As for know, I bought a boxed set of 12 plastic spacecraft from EM4 Miniatures, for only £2.50! Awesome, it even comes with flying bases and a proper box! What a bargain! They are hard plastic (no flexible Italeri rubbish), and look pretty similar in size to a 28mm model (my DE Wych is there for comparison). Just think - that's only 3 school dinners for 6 boxed sets! I will paint 'em up soon, and may knock up some simple rules for them. Here are some pics...
