Desert Themed Terrain

Started on my terrain for desert boards.  I shall be using these for Dune wargaming and for The Taros Campaign.

Start of a rock mound

This is the start of my Palace /Sietch.  It is going to be built into a rock face.  I don't have the room to make the side taper off so they will have to be square and hopefully I may be able to do something with them later.

Heritage Models Der Kriegspielers 1091 The Great Dragon Smog

The Great Dragon Smog

WIP. A lot of gluing and pinning is needed.  I have also decided to bring the wings forward to show off the span.  It means I will have to reposition the arms.

BEF Infantry

More Martians

More Tripods painted and also some lobototon troops (Small and not really enjoyable to paint)


I decided to paint up my various MKII tanks for All Quiet on the Martian Front as BEF.  I still have 3 left on the sprue in case I want to paint up some USA forces in the future.
