Wings of War

Wings of War

This is one of the 1:144 Horten Ho 229 models that have been expertly painted by Erik for his Flames of War game.

I can recommend you check out his Photobucket page for more photos of other aircraft and his army as it's painted and assembled.

And you can read Erik's blog here

If you play the game Wings of War and use one of my Horten Ho 229 models, you may be interested to know that someone over at The Aerodrome Forum have made a Horten Ho Info Card for the game.

Head over to The Aerodrome Forum for more info cards!


For a often updated blog covering a wide variety of genres from Zombies and Vikings to Star Trek and Batman and all with lots of great photographs, go to this blog by Mike.

Head on over for a look and I'm sure there will be something that will take your eye!

Also, Doctor Who fans may want to jump over to Lead Adventures Forum to see  Stevens great painting work.

I, Morbius

I, Morbius

Mentioned in an earlier post was the project by blogger Danny from his Hand Of Junk blog where using the Police Box model and some figures from Black Cat Bases and Battleforge to make a diorama of Doctor Who and the evil Timelord Morbius!

"I, Morbius, who once led the High Council of the Time Lords, reduced to this - to the condition where I envy a vegetable."

It's from one of my favourite Classic Who serials The Brain of Morbius. I recommend getting the DVD and it's a must watch before watching the excellent Night of the Doctor!

See the diorama come together with this great blog post here -

Nissen Hut

David has sent me some photos of a HO/OO Gauge Nissen Hut he's painted for his model train layout.

Also, Doctor Who will be making an appearance on the layout with one of the HO/OO gauge Police Boxes I make and you can see in the picture below, that Harry Potter and Ron (in that funky blue car) will be making an appearance too!

Doctor Behind Glass

The Doctor also pops up in this rather lovely looking scene from Stefan. He's placed the TARDIS into a rather peaceful scene as an ornament, and also painted up some of the other larger scale Police Boxes. 

You can see some of Stefans work in progress pictures and a Tenth Doctor figure below.


Just a little news that both Black Pyramid Gaming and Decors Miniatures join Grekwood Miniatures as some Yeoman Model resellers! Woo Hoo! Both Black Pyramid and Grekwood travel to model shows and make some terrific products. Please check out their websites!


Another photo that was sent to me was the 28mm scale Police Box I make expertly painted from a modeller. He told me that he's gone for the Newbury / Tom Baker colours. the figure for scale is 'Tweedy' from Crooked Dice.

Swiss Trains

If you want to see some great model work of trains and very realistic and detailed layouts, check out this train model site with some fantastic work and lovely photos from Switzerland

Flames of the Red Scull

Gwen from has done a great job of combining the WWII game Flames of War and the WWII Marvel Superhero of Captain America! But no hero can be without a villain, so a Red Scull Army has also been made! Check out the amazing photos below and the forum for more excellent work from Gwen who's Star Wars Stormtrooper army look great too!

Back Toy the Future

Diorama update

You may remember from a previous blog about a Doctor Who themed scene being built with one of my 28mm scale Police Boxes. Well, we have an update from Roger with new photos of the diorama.

If you like this then please also check out his Victorian diorama in previous posts.


HO scale model train fans may want to check out this site. It has quite a large collection of useful images for reference for your own layouts!

Wargamers might want to check out this site which offers a war terrain system and painting service.

Back Toy the Future

I was sent some photos from Felix of a small police box model painted up with a converted hover car like from Back to the Future! Check out the images below. Great stuff!

If you are a fan of Back to the Future, you may want to see a small YouTube video I made with a friend a while back...

Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to the first post of 2014! This blog is a catch up of some fantastic work people have been doing mixed with a little news of upcoming events.

A Christmassy Who

This is a photo of an excellent Christmassy Bauble present made by a gifted lady using a HO/OO scale Police box with a big helping of some artistic talent and skill. I'm also happy to say that the Whovian who received this gift was delighted with it :)

Keeping with Doctor Who, this is a picture of an expertly painted Doctor and K-9 standing outside a half materialised TARDIS. Great Stuff! If you like this painting work (and why wouldn't you?!) then check out his blog all about old school sci fi and fantasy wargaming!

Well I'll be Blogged! 

You may have seen on my Twitter or Facebook pages, but I'm happy to say that some of my Victorian miniatures have been written about in a very complimentary blog! Read the post by Gavin here!

Yeoman Models and the First Crusade!

The Penarth Crusade model show is happening on Saturday the 25th January and Grekwood miniatures will be there selling some of my items! Very exciting! If you can, get along to the show - go! It'll be great!

To the slotties! 

This combination HO train track and slot car road is new to me but here it is all the way from New York. It's made by Scott and is awaiting some HO miniatures to place on the layout.

Roger is bringing a little bit of Victorian London to the USA in his Sherlock Holmes diorama. He's putting together and painting some 28mm Victorian items for his layout on top, and there is a Primeval layout underneath!

And also another UK character is being honoured in this tableau! If you look on the right you can see The Doctor by a Police Box. Lots of people awaiting a lick of paint as you can see but it'll look terrific once finished I'm sure! 

Blog Fan

If you are a fan of bogs about miniatures, then I can recommend It's mainly about Warhammer 40K but he's branching out. Check it out!

I can also recommend if you are looking for a variety of figures from Spartan, Steam Punk and Weird World War II! I have a Steam Lancer from them and it looks great! I can't wait to paint it and when I do - I will of course post it on the blog!
