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…

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…

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…

Waugh Armour comes over the horizon

I had received word from Brian that the range of armour for 15mm scale wargaming was reaching readiness so we arranged for a day when I could come through and have another look and chat. So as I got through today Brian was just coming out from the back having cast a load of barrels…

Scheming and running

Last night at Durham Raiders was my ninth game of Malifaux, and my ninth win. This time though instead of setting out to beat the life out of my opponents models I thought I would actually try scheme running and denial for a change. The schemes I took were Assassinate and Cursed Object, the shared…

Update – Pedion Modular Battlefield terrain

Twin Outriders

As I couldn’t get (and still haven’t got) any Falcon’s I thought I would try out the new YT-2400s. I had pre-ordered one from Beanie Games in Stockton so I knew I had that one waiting for me, but on the day of the release there was a great deal and I was able to…

Star Wars X-Wing

After a bit of deliberation (people at the club are also playing the Game of Thrones card game) I purchased the starter box for Star Wars X-Wing. When I opened the cellophane I could tell it was a good quality product from the care that had been taken in the packaging; everything fitted snugly, but…

Thoughts on latest Space Wolves books

After a lot of anticipation I purchased both of the latest Space Wolves books; Codex: Space Wolves and Champions of Fenris and I went for Digital from Black Library once again as I like the portability of digital products. This weekend gone I’ve spent most of my spare time reading both of them (and still…
