Philip Reeve: Wargaming the Traction Era
Great ideas on how the Mortal Engines and Fever Crumb books could be used as a scenario for wargames. http://philipreeve.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/wargaming-traction-era.html#.VHtI7ibkNfQ.twitter

The Terrain Tutor and I want to help you build better battlefields, no matter what game you play.
Wargame Blooggers Quarterly
A great website for Wargamers “Wargame Bloggers Quarterly!” http://canisterandgrape.blogspot.com/2014/08/announcing-wargame-bloggers-quarterly.html?spref=tw
I have to agree that the Morane-Saulnier Type N was truly an aircraft ahead of its’ time, and had these Frenchmen only adopted ailerons and had perfect firing ammunition with synchronized machine guns firing straight ahead, creating a Saulnier Scourge in 1914 you could have the seeds of an an alternative history in which a magic Bullet could have ended the war early and saved millions.
Roman Battle scene at the BBC !!!!
Again these figures have a really earthy feel a bunch of tough infantry…
During the summer I recieved an email from Dan a researcher for the BBC programme “Coast”. They wanted to use my model of the Romans Vs Celts Battle scene for a segment in one of their shows (series 10) , I believe, at Maryport in Cumbria, to illustrate a time line.
The model wasn’t actually mine as it was donated to my wife’s school, so had to ask them first, they were of course very happy to loan it out.
So I packed it up, very carefully and sent it on it’s way. Inevitably there was some risk attached, models are delicate things, after being away a couple of weeks filming and clearly having some adventures the model did return with some battle damage!
Dan and the BBC were very gracious about putting it right and replaced the damaged dust case lid…..and I fixed up any breakages to the figures…

Spectrum Helijet WIP/update
This is a great example of a very realistic model
Started this Iami kit a couple of years ago, but didn’t get round to completing it..until today!!!! Well, it does need a little bit of a touch up around where i glued it all together so don’t look to closely!!!!! there is some Green stuff drying around the exhausts. Once I have finished painting it i will take some photo’s.
pilots are 28mm scale and were kit bashed heads from here Bodies from here
Decals from J Bot here
Base and telescopic/pivoting stand from Corsec Engineering But will need adapting as helijet is way over the weight limit for the magnetic ball bearing.
the original kits nose was way off what it should have been so I redesigned it with Green stuff, also upgraded the weapon system from M.G. to Partical beam weapon!…well it will be used to hunt Daleks!!!!
Anyway here are the updated pictures.

Chaos Dreadnoughts I really like the quirky nature of some of the older 40K “Bad Guys!”
Captain Scarlet and SPC
Captain Scarlet and SPC. Great paint job and the buildings behind really set things off well IMHO. I like Sci Fi that has buildings one can realte to as if you hink about it if you set a Capt Scarlet game in say in Venice or Naples in 50 years time you could use buildings from anywhere back to the 16th Century
