I'm sure I am not the only person who struggles to create new D&D characters. We all love rolling ability scores, assigning stats and picking skills, right? I find it a lot harder to create a believable, engaging and rich back-story. To help me produce richer history for my new
The SIX best battle mats for DnD
While theatre of the mind is some peoples' preferred method for gaming, I think it suits the Call of Cthulhu RPG much better than the Dungeons and Dragons game. For me, the D&D experience is totally taken to the next level with battle mats! Battle mats; grid maps full of
My favourite Soviet armoured fighting miniature I've currently got in 1/72nd scale is the Russian SU-76M model. It was a Russian made self propelled gun, used extensively during World War II - so I definitely need many models of them on my wargaming table. (The tanks full name is the
This gang was inspired by someone's Necromunda 'Prison Escapee' themed Goliath gang I saw years ago. Always wanted to try my hand at it - I think I got halfway there 😉 My painting recipe is listed below: Miniature primed in white beforehand. Based was primed in dark grey /
vallejo paint list codes names
I always end up either buying duplicates paints, or get home only to realise I've ran out of a colour and should have bought it while at my FLGS. To that end I thought I'd start cataloguing my paints, which ones need restocking, and which ones I have plenty of.
I'm always finding new manufacturers for my main 1/72 scale Soviet Russian army. Russians, aka Soviets*, obviously make up a huge swathe of the forces involved and replicated on WW2 wargaming tables. My game of choice at the moment is Battlegroup which I'm enjoying thoroughly at 20mm size. The following

DIY Terrain - Necromunda & Kill-Team
My good friend Andy and I are slowly creeping closer to our first games of Necromunda and also to some Kill Team. Well we would have been if it wasn't for COVID! I have recently slapped some paint on my Goliath boys ready for their new underhive home. Any terrain
Battelgroup: Fall of the Reich logo
With COVID-19 in full force, our new found fondness for Battlegroup was driven online for the 'Fall of the Reich' campaign battle 'Forlorn Hope at Sachsendorf'. You'll find the after action report (AAR) for this battle in the following post(s). TL>DR; AAR - Jump down to Turn 1 or Turn
While my current Starfinder RPG campaign ploughs into the void of space, I continue to collect inspiration and draft up new spaceships to fill the little sci-fi universe. The majority of spaceships my players will never visit and have exteriors they'll never see, but who doesn't love building up and
These were an easy win on my spreadsheet of figures to paint. A handful of WW2 Germany infantry that only needed a little wash thrown over them before I could call them complete. 7x German infantry 'washed' and then 2 NPC miniatures painted completely. I should have done a bit
