Gamers Grass Tufts – Review

I purchased a selection of “tufts” from Gamer’s Grass a few months ago to try and spice up my desert bases. I’ve always been a bit wary of grass tufts after a bad experience with a crushed packet of unnatural looking grass from Army Painter.

These tufts proved to be much better and in a wide range of colours and sizes.

I first tried them on my Blight Kings and they instantly gave some life to the otherwise barren bases:

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.

Space Mats (& Battle Mats) review

In all the rage of space ship miniature games lately, I decided to fork out for a 3×3 (foot) vinyl mat to play on. I’d previously got some 3v3 MDF boards cut but quickly realised that you need more space to put all the cards on for the likes of X-Wing and Star Trek Attack Wing. When playing on larger boards, you can easily forget where the board edge is and fly your ships off to their doom! So, a 3v3 map on a larger table seems the best compromise. However, you can of course  buy larger dimensions if needed.

Miniature Review: Impact Miniatures Chibi range

Neil of Orange here with yet another Kick Starter related review.

Impact Miniatures are a company I was aware of previously due to the range of Fantasy Football figures they produce.  I regularly read Table Top Fix to get insight on new toys coming out and they previewed a great looking set of Chibi style dungeon adventurers, some of which reminded me strongly of a childhood cartoon.

Miniature Review : Guild of Harmony Maria and Burt

Hello all, Neil of Orange here again.  Breaking the trend a little, here’s a review of some minis not related to a kickstarter.  Instead it’s some fab steampunk figures from Guild of Harmony who produce some interesting takes on fairy tale characters.

So my pair of minis came all the way from Australia in next to no time at all.  They arrived in a well packed bubble pack envelope (if memory serves) in little baggies as you can see above.
