Brigade Miniatures Tanks

Got three of these the other day and broke out the spray gun. Good detail and they actually look big enough to have crew in them.

Has Anyone Seen These Before?

Ran into these guys recently and ordered samples of the work. New Zealanders apparently, choice bro! Will report on the quality when they get here.

Lets Get Started Again!

So, after some time away its time to get back into the world of the miniature. Running a retail business in this economic climate is not easy let me tell you! So for stress relief its time to make some stuff.
First of all, let it be known I am a great fan of just about everything Khurasan Miniatures makes but one of my all time favourites has been the Red Faction VTOL Gunship-

I kept the paint job pretty simple and added some caution stickers from a Gundam model but overall it comes up well, really detailed cast- nice and clean.

I like the Heavy Grav APC as well but was neve fond of the grav bit or the dinky wheels on it so I stole some 1/72 Stryker wheels and glued them on-
Bit better, it needed some chunky run flat action to set it off a bit, now to paint it up.

Its Been A Long Time

I have not posted on the blog for some time. A few things have got in the way but mostly it has been my new venture- www.fotoriesel.com.au check it out if you are interested in cameras and photography. I havnt neglected my hobby though, in fact the mountain of minis has grown to epic proportions including some Imprint 28mm Strykers- Photo on 27 11 11 at 5 09 PM Its not quite finished yet but its getting painted up in a NATO three colour scheme. I got it from Empress Miniatures who are now stocking these excellent vehicles. Also been painting up some QRF, Peter Pig and Irish Serb stuff for Force on Force- Photo on 27 11 11 at 5

My Peter Pig Modern US Infantry Has Arrived

I had an inkling to go back to 15mm but I really did not want to do more WWII stuff so the order went in to Peter Pig Miniatures for their modern US. I was opened minded from the start but being used to the FOW stuff, although good, they often lacked some detail. I was pleasantly surprised at how good these fellows are. I have decided to mount them up on FOW bases in fireteams. They go well with the Irish Serb vehicles so a platoon or so of US is on its way to the front.

Quick note to sing the praises of the Irish Serb-


Both the Humvees and the Bradleys are really nice, service great and postage quick, rock on Mr Serb.

Welcome to the easy life

Well I finally gave in, first the ipod then the iphone, apple tv and now the bright and shiny mac book pro. This stemmed mainly from the new job, we sell macs so I needed to get a handle on sponsors product. Today saw the introduction of a time capsule and two airport express base stations to finally have the whole house networked. Everything worked as advertised and was easy to set up plus it operates flawlessly! This will explain some changes in format and look as I will be using some new software, MarsEdit being the primary editing tool.

This Is Sad News-

From their website-

6.20.11: Due to circumstances beyond my control, I will have to temporarily suspend operations of Khurasan Miniatures. Don't worry, we will be back. It's just that there is a personal issue that has come up which will require some time to work through.
Also, please rest assured if you are a vendor, sculptor, or customer, that we fully intend to honor all of cour commitments to you, and all orders now in the pipe will be processed.
I have turned off the website, but please be advised that no new orders will be accepted for now, so if you find some way to process an order, it will be refunded immediately. Thanks to all our loyal friends and customers, and we will definitely be back in time. I am hoping for Fall of 2011 if not sooner. Bye for now, but not for good.

Hope all goes well and you are back soon, your excellent range and great service will be missed.
