Fort Grayskull Part 6 (Final)

Parts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. With Fort Grayskull finally finished I thought that I would put up shots of the finished elements.  The photos could be better (there is a bit of fish eye going on because I forgot to change the macro setting on the camera), but they should illustrate adequately.

Fort Grayskull Part 5

Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4. The last thing that I needed to do to finish the project was to add doors to the gates.

Fort Grayskull Part 4

Continued from parts 1, 2 and 3. After the quite time consuming process of sticking all of that stuff to the castle sections the last time, I set about painting them. Anything made from silver plastic (the Hexagon stuff and the sprues) just got a load of black emulsion paint slopped onto it which I […]

Fort Grayskull Part 3

Parts 1 and 2. After the previous days extended session, the following day I was lucky enough to have nothing terribly grown up to attend to (the first time for ages).  So I settled down for a nice long glue filled afternoon stint.

Fort Grayskull Part 2

Continued from Part 1. I am going to attempt to give some post-apocalyptic va-va-voom to toy castle components that look like those above.  Left to right is a tower, a wall, another tower and a gate section.   In total I have four gate sections, twelve wall sections and sixteen towers. All of the pieces […]

Fort Grayskull Part 1

I bought a toy castle in 1995 or so because I thought that it would be suitable for use in 28mm gaming.  I liked both its modular nature and its low price so much that I then went back and bought three more castles, just so that I could make one huge castle at some […]

Gorkamorka Project

CLICK HERE to see all of my Gorkamorka related progress since I wrote this post… boyz, vehicles, forts, buildings, terrain etc Gorkamorka is a skirmish game system that GW brought out in 1997.  It has very similar mechanics to Necromunda but with the notable addition of vehicle rules that involve a little bit of risk […]

2011 So Far

I have been preoccupied with a number of non-toy soldier related issues for the last couple of months.  Some of the distractions have been dull real life things but others (like a holiday in the US and various Xbox things) have been very pleasant.  The downside of course is that the hobby stuff suffers. In […]

GorkaMorka Gaming

Having been cutting, gluing and painting ork miniatures and post apocalyptic terrain for the last few months, MT and SOS paid a visit to play some GorkaMorka a couple of weeks ago. The plan was to concentrate on putting our respective mobs through their paces by playing nothing but GoMo for the duration, which is […]

Camping with Bugs

Two items today: Necromunda Milliasaurs and some dog tents from Renedra. I picked up the set of dog tents from the Renedra stand at Salute along with another item. Although I already have three feral, teepee type tents painted up I wanted to have models that represented tents that might feasibly be moved around easily, either on a […]
