Postapocalyptic Guns for Hire

The thick concrete walls and ceilings of the laboratory had partially collapsed. Georgi only wanted to do a quick check of the first room in section D before the dusk swallowed the last light of the day. All of a sudden, he heard a smacking clacking sound echoing off the walls. Georgi unlocked his rifle, held his breath and walked backwards as quietly as he could.


You need a guide to the zone? One who knows his way around the darkest and lowest floors of the old bunkers?
Fyodor is exactly the right man for you. Yes, he walks with a limp and his left eye is made of glass, but he has many notches in the stock of his rifle and has survived more missions than many others.

To boldly go where no man has gone before

Space, the final frontier
These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise
Its five year mission
To explore strange new worlds
To seek out new life
And new civilizations
To boldly go where no man has gone before

"The Trouble with Tribbles" was aired in December 1967 and is one of the iconic episodes of the classic Star Trek series. When I stumbled across these 3D models more or less by accident, I was immediately hooked. There are now some very nice designs that also depict the different periods and characters of the franchise.

GASLANDS: Lots of Rockets, a Harpoon and a Wrecking Ball

First game of the new year, but third defeat in just three weeks.

Two teams competed. Team Monster Truck (a single vehicle, but one that used up almost all of its 50 cans due to highly upgraded weapon systems) against Team Wrecking Ball (a truck plus two bikes).

After initial successes, one bike was instantaneously blown off the track by a missile salvo with eight hits and the wrecking ball truck took enormous damage from a second missile salvo, unfortunately the clever combination of harpoon and wrecking ball came into play.
The monster truck was pulled into range of the wrecking ball by the harpoon winch and finished off there by multiple impacts, molotov cocktails and handguns.

Space Hulk: Time for some Upgrades

My first contact with wargaming was in the late 80s through SPACE HULK from GW. Almost 25 years later it's time not only to reminisce, but to give the vintage 1st edition a few upgrades.

For now, the plan is to replace the old plastic miniatures with new 3D printed designs. The cardboard airlock doors will also be replaced with modern 3D printed designs. In the long run, the old 2D floor parts will also be replaced with 3D prints (or perhaps 3D paper models). But let's see.
