Twelve Encounters of Rogue Stars

I’ve not done a lot of blogging in 2017, although I have posted a lot of pictures directly on the the facebook account for MyWargame and I thought a post was overdue.  I did spent a lot of hobby time working on sci-fi models this year so as a bit of fun, here’s some of the highlights with the context of the Rogue Stars campaign that I’m continuing to run for a growing group of players.

StarGrind

StarGrind is a Science Fiction miniature range from Krakon Games. It may well become a game one day, but for now the market is quite full of rulesets, so KG are more than happy to provide new miniatures to play them with.

The “universe” is a typical futuristic galaxy-spanning setting, with humans having ventured beyond Terra (Earth) and discovered that they are very much not alone. Many alien species exist, most with their own interstellar civilisations.

Kings of War : Herd progress, Avatar of the Father

So at the start of the year I blogged about starting a herd army for Kings of War.  I mentioned that I had plans for an Avatar of the Father model, using an unreleased model from Mierce Minatures, Sia.  Well after asking nicely, I finally received the model recently and got to work on building and painting it.  This post hopefully will review the model and show you how I’ve got it battle ready.

Introducing Scum & Smugglers – Arim

After the success of my first Kickstarter – Frills & Fauna, it seems obvious to me that I should sustain use of the crowd-funding strategy to reach out to an audience. Despite being incredibly niche, the project raised more money than sales of anything else I’ve sculpted, combined. Admittedly, I am fairly new to the scene so that’s not a major statement, but when you are trying to make a living from the art, it’s one hell of a tasty pie to eat from.

Krakon Games Frills and Fauna – in the wild and dangerous

So one of the perks of being the brother of a sculptor running a Kickstarter is getting early access to some of the pre-production models.

I’ve had a quick paint up of the Cirripod family and placed them into some sci-fi environments to see how they look…
