Sadly no longer available…

One of my favourite pieces from Forgeworld was the Epic Cathedral. This is Carl’s (from Dropzone) which was part of the scenery from an excellent demonstration game of Epic at GamesDay 2001.

I really do like this model and Carl has done an excellent paint job on this.

So much better than mine…

Alas it is no longer available from Forge World which is a pity, the nice tank factory is also not available, ah well.

You have to ask is Apocalypse the new Epic, but just with a bigger table?

Warhammer Chapel

I was lucky to receive one of the new Warhammer plastic buildings for a present (thanks Simon). I have mentioned in previous posts how impressed I was with the new buildings.

It was the chapel.

In the “A4” sized box you get two sprues with all the parts and extras on them.

One part I did particularly like was the clock.

This looks like it will be quite a substantial kit, as the plastic parts are quite thick compared to other plastic building kits I have made in the past. There will also be quite a few extra parts which I will be able to use on other models as well.

I hope we see more building kits in the future, it would be nice to see some more accompanying buildings as well as Orc or Elven constructions as well.

Looking forward to making this one up.

Games Workshop Epic Scenery

Seeing this image recently from an old White Dwarf.

It reminded me how good GW epic scale custom made scenery was. The Dwarf and the (older) rule books were full of these kind of pictures. Which is why I wish the Epic Armageddon book had being full of these kind of pictures (or even these pictures) rather than the (cartoony) artwork from the collectable card game.

Scenery for Moderns and WWII

Try your local model railway shop…

I was in my local toyshop looking for presents for my son, when I checked out the model railway section.

Two things caught my eye for having a use on the gaming table, Hornby’s Skaledale range and the Cararama range of 1/72nd vehicles.

Hornby’s Skaledale range is a superb range of ready painted resin UK 1/72nd buildings that would be excellent for any Operation Sealion type game. This pub is typical of the quality of the range.

There is also a range of modern stuff that could be used for a modern type scenario. These skips are an example of the Skaledale range.

You can see pictures of all the range on the Hornby website.

There is also a N gauge range which could be used with 15mm figures at a push. 15mm is approx 1/100th scale and N is 1/160th scale.

The Cararama range of vehicles would be ideal for any moderns game in providing some real background scenery. These are highly detailed scale model cars.

There are also quite a few for a scenario set in the 1960s.
