Trolls Under the Bridge – Sisters of Battle Bits

HKM-003_1024x1024I recently ran across a company that makes bits compatible with the Sisters of Battle esthetic, including this cool themed Hunter-Killer Missile. You should check them out. I’ve got an order of one of each of their items that I’m waiting on. I’ll post pictures and a review when they arrive.

Here Be Dragons… A new RPG written by a friend of the League

HC 1
Every now and then I write an article on something other than painting.  Lately, I just need to write articles.  Anyway, a friend of the blog sent me an update on a funded Kickstarter, HC SVNT DRACONES.  That’s Latin for Here Be Dragons.  A reference to uncharted territory on maps and globes from the early 16th century.
Anyway, I got a link to the game over onDriveThruRPG, where it is sitting at the #6 hottest title:

I downloaded a copy to see that the game is all about.  The rulebook comes in just under 300 pages with beautiful full color artwork throughout, a sharp layout, and an attractive price. Right now you can pay whatever price you feel the book is worth.  I don’t have a ton of time to play RPGs lately, but I did take a look through the book.  Here’s what I’ve found:

My Airbrush Setup

I get questions regularly on what hardware I use in my airbrush setup.  Below I’ll show you what I use and some alternatives if you want to save a few bucks.  I’m linking to various vendors; however, I don’t get any payment for these items, so buy where you’re most convenient.


Air Brush – I have two, and I like the cheaper one better

  • Iwata HP-C Plus – this was my first brush.  It is better made than my Neo; however, I use the Neo day in and out for the reasons I will explain below.
  • Iwata Neo CN – I bought this brush locally on sale for about $40.  You can get it on Amazon for under $55, and close to $40 at Dick Blick right now..  This is a great brush that will take you from beginner to experienced intermediate and perhaps beyond.

Buy local – new game company “Fire Squadron”


I have two friends, Andy and Tracy, who have been talking about starting a game company as long as I’ve known them.  Well, they’ve finally done it.  Their Kickstarter was launched, and funded inside a few days.  There is still time to get on board:

With 18 days left I expect they will unlock most, if not all of their stretch goals.  At $15, the game is a steal.  How do I know, I got to play test it before they launched their Kickstarter.  This game is LUMP approved.

Creature Caster now on Kickstarter

If you’re a Chaos Daemon player, or generally like to paint larger organic models, then you need to check out this long awaited Kickstarter from the guy that brought us Ultraforge daemons.  The kickstarter campaign is less than a day old, has tripled its goal and already unlocked 5 bonus options.

Product Review: Slip Grip Hobby Mat


As most people know, painting can be a particularly messy hobby. Add in the overspray of airbrushing and most work surfaces are doomed to become an acrylic caked jumble of colors. Enter the Slip Grip hobby mat, a product that claims to be Teflon-like in nature. Paints, adhesives, and more are stated to effortlessly wipe away, leaving behind only a clean work-space. Does it live up to these claims? I put it through its paces over the last 8 months to find out.

Product Review: Chapterhouse Studios Space Bug Defense Lines


February was a good month for me for Kickstarters.  I received 3 shipments, completing my Frontline Gaming/Tablewar Megamat, Tablewar Mini Case and finally, my Chapterhouse Studios Defense line sets.  Both Tablewar and Frontline Gaming were spot on, or darn close on shipment timelines.

If you want to see some of the other designs you can checkout the already funded CHS kickstarter here. Continue reading

Tablewar Mini Case Review (part 1)

I purchased a Mark I Tablewar full size case over a year ago and it quickly became my go-to case for regular local transport of my army to games and tournaments.  I like that I can put units onto small unit trays and then place the unit trays onto either my book shelf at home, or a shelf in the case for transport.  It helps at tournaments to be able to deploy models quickly from my case without dealing with removing models with lots of pointy bits from foam.

When Doug and Todd launched their Kickstarter for the mini case I was the first to back it.  I’m still not entirely sure what I’ll do with the mini case, since it is quite small, but I may use it for transporting models I’m painting or small skirmish armies.


Here’s the dog checking out the package.  She smells something… Continue reading

Product Review: Alpha Abrasives


While the wargaming community has a split opinion on whether or not painting models is fun, very few people enjoy the tedious task of prepping models. Unfortunately, ignoring a mold line or other casting limitation distracts the viewer from an otherwise great paint job. In pursuit of making preparation as easy as possible, I tried a group of sanding products from Alpha Abrasives and their sub-brand Flex-I-File.
