Flexible ‘Big Men’ for TFL Games

I’ve been a big fan of Too Fat Lardies for quite some time.  I really like how their games center around ‘Big Men’ and their effect on the battle field.  That being said, I’ve never found a way to mark the Big Men models, for game plays sake, that I’ve been happy with.  Some folks […]

Dead of Winter Test Models

I’m getting close to wrapping up my current FIW project (well the close to finishing the beginning anyway) and that’s got me itching to try something different for me.  Something that doesn’t require historical accuracy.  I’ve also wanted to try some zombies for a while now, inspired by Akula’s Rules: Skirmish Edition.  I wanted to […]

Prussian Steam Robots?

I have been wanting to try these guys since I first saw something similar on Rot and Drivel. It has just taken me a while as I wanted to finish my SYW armies before experimenting. The time has come for experimenting. These are a little off from my usual track as they have no basis […]

Sharp Practice 6mm Test Models

I am currently nearing a finish on a three year old Kolin project and am starting to itch for new horizons.  I have wanted to get into Napoleonics but was intimidated by the uniforms for years.  Then I overcame that and couldn’t find the models that I liked.  My favorite manufacturer isn’t coming out with […]
