Review : Space Ork bodies from Micro Art Studio 1

Review : Space Ork bodies from Micro Art Studio

Due to some silly accidents recently (even after 20 years of using a craft knife its easy to slip…) my painting and scenery projects have not progressed as quickly as I had hoped, so to break the silence, something completely different.

A good friend of mine collects space orks and was keen to put together some nice looking freebooters/flash gitz for his army.  Thanks to Whitehorn’s list of alternative suppliers, Jim (a member of this very website) was able to source an interesting selection of bits to create his flashy freebooters with.

Product review: Outcast – Grizzled Heads 3

Product review: Outcast – Grizzled Heads

Welcome to the first MyWargame product review!

Hailing from a new company, Outcast Wargames, the Grizzled Squad Leader Heads set is a pack of 5 human heads suitable for 25-28mm miniatures. At a cost of £2.50, the 5 heads come to 50p each. This equates to 10-30p more than buying a plastic head from a bitz store but a good ~30p less than other custom stores such as Maxmini. For a selection of unique and varied heads it is easily justified, if only to break up the monotony of your troopers’ faces!
