Ramshackle Games – Robots review

Curtis at Ramshackle Games has been running another Kickstarter. This time we have a selection of robots and pieces that can be assembled in whatever way you fancy to create your desired robot(s).


I got a few pieces early to put together a review for the Kickstarter.

The amount of choice can leave you feeling a bit lost at first, but once you isolate the legs and torsos, the rest is down to weapons preference.

The dog robot is a definite favourite of mine, so I am grateful to have received the parts to put this robot together. With the rest, I made a bit of a mix between the Trevor and DSD.

The resin is robust, but glass-like, so you have to be careful if using clippers. It’s better to use a saw or knife to prevent the wrong part snapping. I had to re-attach some toes after discovering this.

The first coat is Tin Bitz / Brass Scorpion bronze followed by a drybrush of Boltgun silver. 2015-05-23 00.44.56Then I gave the whole model a wash of Strong Tone ink.

The base is covered with Squig Orange, which happens to be close to the new Martian Ironearth technical paint.

With everything dry, I give the robots a drybrush of Mithril Silver / Runefang Steel and then apply some watery Ryza Rust to some of the steps between metal joints. This is the raw metal all done for the robots. The colouring will come later.
