Thunder Run Game at Orccon 2015

Last night’s big Micro Armor game sponsored by GameCraft Miniatures. Good times were had by all. The Iraqis got the backsides handed to them but they took out a respectable number of M1A1 Abrams tanks in the process,,, 6 of them, that’s roughly 6 more than the real Iraqis took out in this campaign.

New GHQ Minis Coming Next Week

This week I ordered the following new GHQ minis:
W-101 T-72 TUSK
N-577 CV90105
N-578 Challenger 2 (TES)
N-579 M977 HEMMT Armoured

In an email from GHQ today I was informed that my order was being processed “right now”, so I expect we’ll see these new pieces on the site sometime late next week.

The only piece I’ve seen a photo of so far is the Challenger and it looks nice.


Patriot Radar Trailer

Early work-in-progress version of the Patriot AN/MPQ-53 radar. The trailer is the same as the Patriot trailer with the exception of the removal of the forward generator and a full sheet of “diamond plate” put in it’s place.
Much fine tuning needs to be done to the radar unit itself and then I’ll make the mold and start casting them. Should be about another week.

M1074 PLS Conversion Kit for GHQ HEMTT

This conversion kit converts one GHQ N95 HEMTT (NOT INCLUDED) into an M1074 Palletized Load System (PLS).

All parts in this kit are cast in Pewter.  Look at all the photos to see instrucitons on making the conversion.

The Palletized Load System (PLS) is a logistics supply program that entered service in the United States Army in 1993. It performs line haul (long distance), local haul (short distance), unit resupply, and other missions in the tactical environment to support modernized and highly mobile combat units. It provides rapid movement of combat configured loads of ammunition and all classes of supply, shelters and containers.

Al Sijood Palace in 1/285th Scale

I am working on this new piece for our 285th scale middle east collection. This is the Al Sijood Palace in Baghdad Iraq. This will be a resin cast kit that comes in several pieces. I’ve taken some liberties in scaling this building down, the actual building in 1/285th scale would be about 16″ long … I’ve cheated a bit and got it down to a more reasonable 10″ long while still maintaining an impressive size.  I’m doing something very new with this kit, creating a mixed media kit.  The 4 walls and the dome will be resin castings and the roof and internal structure will be MDF.

These photos show the internal frame structure that is made of laser cut MDF.  This internal structure also makes up the roof pieces.   Note: the dome will not be a perfect hemisphere like the one shown, the Al Sijood Palace has a dome with a slight point to it’s top ,, the white dome shown here is for demonstration purposes only.
