TIE Fighter Repaints

I’m not sure if there were really any Imperial guard TIE fighters. If their were, maybe they would look like these? The TIE with the stripe was hand done on top of the basic paint job with AV Hull Red. Could be a little brighter and straighter. Maybe I’ll fix it one of these days.…

 

B-Wing Conversion

This is a simple conversion of a B-Wing. Cockpit was sliced off and turned 90 degrees and re-glued. The post from between the engines was removed and excavated with a dremel. I used the dremel to make a small shallow hole in the wing to glue in the remains of the post from the rear.…

 

X-wing Repaints

I’ve been getting into the x-wing miniatures game recently. The model come pre-painted, and they do a pretty good job. That doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement, or just looking to add a little variety. These are my 5 x-wings. One is Wedge from the Bacta War series of x-wing novels. The rest are…

 

Vauban Sky Fortress

I have to say this is one of the most ridiculous models I have ever painted. Its huge for the scale- almost softball sized. Its a flying double wide aircraft carrier for god’s sake! There is an insane amount of detail to pick out as well. Unfortunately most of that is on the bottom where is doesn’t…

 

Steampunk Templates

I’ve been working with the laser cutter at work recently and designed a few templates to be compatible with Dystopian Wars. I have a set of 4 turning templates in the required sizes. Mine are improved from the ones in the book aside from having original artwork. The large template includes a 270 degree arc…

 

Eclipse Population Trays v2

My first shot with the Eclipse population trays didn’t work out so well. They were too small, and the stock looked like it had been bumped in the middle of cutting. Fortunately Outfab.com took care of me and re-cut the trays for free. The cut was perfect this time along with the size. It yields…

 

Kingdom of Britain Dreadnought

This is another piece I’ve been working on for a friend. It is a little more showy than the starter box stuff, but a dreadnought is a center piece of a fleet. Same basic scheme, just more attention paid to the details. I’m pretty happy with how the glowing effect from the generators came off.    …

 

Welcome to the New Look

I changed up the look of the site recently.  I hope you enjoy the changes. The new layout should scale much better to a wider variety of screen sizes and resolutions. It is also a more modern theme that supports more plugins. You now have the ability to share articles from The Rules Lawyer on…

 

Couronne WIP

I have been working on additions to my french fleet alongside the KOB starter fleet I’ve been painting. This is my first addition, a Couronne class battle carrier. Not only does it give you another wing of TFTs, but it brings some pretty nice guns to the fights. At this stage I’ve worked through most…

 

Kingdom of Britain Starter Fleet

I finished the Dystopian Wars starter fleet box that I have been working on for a friend. The basic paint scheme is pretty much right off the box, but the blue gun metal is new, and I’m pretty sure the flyers are different. I didn’t really reference it while painting, he just pointed me to…
