Railway station set from 6mm Resin Cast Buildings/Leven Miniatures

I have been pretty busy recently, so I didn’t really have much time to write any new reviews. Already few weeks ago Mick from 6mm Resin Cast Buildings/Leven Miniatures sent me his newly produced railway station set.As usual price is very affordable and for nearly 25 quid plus postage you are getting a big lot of buildings allowing you to build complete railway station together with all extra buildings plus gives you plenty of tracks as well, railway bridge and arches to allow you to build tunnel through the hill/mountain.
As with the airfield set buildings are very nicely cast, almost no flash to remove and no visible mold lines. Detail on everything is also very crisp, although I would recommend sticking some card or other form of support under tracks as they are pretty thin… just to stay on the safe side 😉
I honestly cannot recommend this set and other terrain produced by Mick enough. It is good both for II World War games and for modern conflicts in Europe.
Mick has more buildings in the pipeline, his list of planned stuff is pretty impressive and you can already check the pictures on his website. All in all that new small company is a great addition to 6mm gaming.

Ork Dakkajet finished and painting in progress

Ok, ended up not using it in the tournament, but nevertheless finished building it on time and had basic paintjob on it. Quite happy with the result, already looks much better and more orky 🙂

Of course i am always open for constructive criticism and any feedback is more than welcome!

My ork vehicles and dakkajet WIP

So the 6th edition of warhammer 40k is out and soon there is another tournament organised by Brighton Warlords, in which I will be taking part. I was bored to death with 5th edition so for probably last half a year I didn’t bother with that game AT ALL. It became totally predictable, dull and required absolutely no longer term strategy and thinking. 6th edition seemed to improve it a lot, so once again I am excited by playing my beloved Orks!
Obviously as it is always the case with me, new tournament is an opportunity to build some more vehicles. This time i am fielding along my normal stuff also two big trakks with supa-skorchas (yes marines, flamer that ignores your armour!) and also decided to build myself a dakkajet, as I think one produced by GW looks bit too neat for an ork flyer and at the same time is quite expensive.

I used my early project of mekboy junka and decided to turn it into a big trakk, another one was created from plastic Stuart tank I bought on the market ages ago and dakkajet used Mig 15 plastic model, which just firs perfectly for any ork looking plane.

You can see the results so far before it is painted (although I will be adding some more bits and bobs on them such as more armour plates). So far I am pretty happy with the result.
