CP Models

CP Models is based in Hinckley, Leicestershire and have been going for quite a while now. I’ve bought a few models from here over the years and one of my favourites has always been the Old Mage and their other adventurer fantasy range. I’ve also used a few of their models for In Her Majesty’s…

Malifaux galleries

This can be found here http://www.bad-things-happen.co.uk/model-gallery/ and if you want your image added please email it to me at stephen@bad-things-happen.co.uk, and will be getting more…

Alignments in RPGs

Lots of discussion often goes in to what characters of certain alignments should or shouldn’t do so I thought I would throw my thoughts into the ring (had these written down for so long the paper was yellow, should have been white, and the pencil was really faded). Lawful Good Always keep their word Avoid…

Age of the Primarchs

With the coming of Guilliman, Cypher and the Yvraine, we should have known something was up, with some denying the rumours of a shake up to Warhammer 40K. So when we got the announcement there was a great wailing and gnashing of teeth, though the Powers stated that they were not AoSing 40K (though I…

Bad Things Happen

A sister site to Potentially Lethal is in development to answer all those question that I keep seeing about Malifaux. Such as: How much do the crew boxes cost? Where are the faction specific Facebook pages? Is there a list of models sortable by various criteria? What good podcasts are there for Malifaux? Is there…

Daunting

Over the last six months I’ve seen a lot of changes, from being unemployed to becoming a bookseller and during these changes I’ve let everything else pile up whilst I was sorting these life changes out. This has caused a lot of backlog of information and hobby craft among other things. My ‘man-cave’ (the loft)…

I Hate Wyrd Games

Not really but this Monday’s preview is so annoying. We have a weak pound, and really big import charges in the UK which means I can’t justify buying my go-to Master’s Nightmare Edition. The Wild Ones, which I think would be based on the biker film with Marlon Brando in it ‘The Wild One’, sees…

Snow-basing miniatures

I have been looking at snow-basing some of my Bolt Action miniatures and was looking for advice around the Internet. There was a good thread on the Facebook Bolt Action group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/boltaction/permalink/501322216704390/. The gist of the thread was that there are several ways to do this, depending on the outcome you desired. Baking Soda…

I haven’t received mine yet but at £6.81 including postage from the US it seems a bargain and someone who has received them says that it…

Question of suitability

I saw this image of Slave-1 done up with a German Luftwaffe cross on it and really liked the colour scheme and how it all worked together. The original post is for Dust which is an alternative future WWII. The imagery fits so well with Dust and therefore the question isn’t about Dust. The question…
