Model Train Show

Today, my wife & I spent some time at the Model Train Show in Sherwood Park. Just another of the events that fill my September & make it so amusingly hectic!

But certainly not in a bad way, I just get very excited for this stuff!

Seeing how far this hobby has progressed is amazing. LEDs have allowed for  flashing lights on vehicles, & buildings to be lit up.

This fellow I am always impressed to see. He has the most amazingly detailed diorama's I've seen.

This year I noticed he has begun working in N guage as seen in the image below.

In most cases, he scratch builds all the tools & bits you see.

Then of course, there are the visits to the vendors, where I am always on the hunt for 1/43 scale things for Pulp / Apocalypse gaming.

This year I managed to snag 4 vehicles

As well as a couple more O guage train cars.

I then spotted a Grader

And lastly a Cessna at 1/43 scale. Now what scenarios could I use that for? Mwahahaha! Sorry, there are 8 of you, but only 4 will fit!

The last item I found, was at the Gibbons Townwide garage sale last weekend. It was in one of those 'FREE' boxes that are found at most of the sales. It even came already dirty!

Thus ended this years Model Train Show. 

The guys are over tomorrow to restart our Frostgrave Campaign, so now its off to bed to prepare for that! Thanks for stopping by.

Imperial Assault - Sabine & Zeb

At long last, I can finally say I've completed the commision for my buddy in doing his Hero figures for Star Wars Imperial Assault - Sabine Wren & Zeb Orrelios.

Nice sculpts & Sabine is especially dynamic in pose. Not sure how her lower body was coloured, I stayed with the yellow/purple armor plating.

Zeb of course just looks like he is about to stroll into the Cantina & lay a smack-down on someone.

Of course looking back at all these figures, has me looking at my own set of unpainted ones.... 

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Frostgrave Soldiers

This past weekend I completed 3 more of the Frostgrave Soldiers. Here I made a Treasure Hunter, Infantryman & Crossbowman

It appears some touching up of the base rims is in store.

I've also been putting together & basing the Barbarians for our campaign relauch. I have also been creating a figure to represent Ambronnax. I first thought to use 2 GW boar heads, but they are huge. Luckily I tracked down 2 old RAFM metal boar figures I had & lopped off their heads to use for the Demon. More on that one in another post.

Thanks for dropping by!
