Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may well find something of interest if you rummage about a bit (check out the Labels at the bottom of the blog). I concentrate on air and naval wargaming, but other 'skirmishy' things quite often pop up out of nowhere, only to disappear again after something else grabs my attention. I even finish the occasional project now and again!

Basing 15mm Sci Fi Infantry
GZG Colonia Militia figure on Warbases movement tray
I really need a new camera!
I've been fiddling around with basing ideas for my 15mm hard sci-fi project and have settled on a combination of individual basing on 1p coins combined with multiple basing on movement trays from Warbases. This will give me the flexibility to use a range of different rules and make it easier to move loads of 15mm figures around easily. I like the look of multiple bases as it gives you the opportunity to go to town on the texturing to make them look really cool (I hope?). Not only that but you can remove casualties and swap them over for dead/wounded figures. I haven't worked out the base arrangements for the support weapons yet but 2p coins look like the best way forward, perhaps with movement trays as well. I'll also be basing up my hover vehicles, adding a 3mm mdf riser under the hulls to give them that 'skimming over the surface' look.
