    Sudsy builds with paper...

    You might be ok from eBay. I just buy from whichever UK seller is cheapest - generally 99p-ish for 1500. I also bought some 3mm and 5mm and use them for lights, sensors, domes etc. Though I am adapting all the plans to styrene so they likely affix better for me than they might onto paper...

    Baconfleet Gothic - back to the Yak with tiny spehhs ships!

    Oh no! Try a refresh. They seem to be working. This project has been a great use for all the odds and sods of plasticard offcuts and sprue I’ve accumulated. Need to make a rival fleet next I guess!

    Baconfleet Gothic - back to the Yak with tiny spehhs ships!

    Thank you all! It’s a lot of fun. Inspired by the text about no two Strike Cruisers being alike, I created unique builds for Deathwing (left) and Ravenwing (right) cruisers. The Deathwing Strike Cruiser has boarding torpedo tubes and a stocky, submarine-like look, reflecting its armoured...

    Baconfleet Gothic - back to the Yak with tiny spehhs ships!

    Here’s how we’re looking after a couple more days... I’ve added four Hunter Escorts, two Gladius Frigates, a Nova Frigate and three teeeeny tiiiiny bases of Thunderhawks. Layering up the Hunters. Apparently favoured by the Dark Angels, so I plumped for making four at once. I’m using the...

    Nice work! Love me some Patoroch plans, and I’d seen some of your pics on his FB group. I’ve made so many Patoroch models now... can’t recommend half round nail art beads enough for rivets, btw!

    Baconfleet Gothic - back to the Yak with tiny spehhs ships!

    Thank you! I do have some modified cars that will be ideal for Necromunda. Will get pics up at some point. Also just made a shanty town that’s an absolutely ideal Necromunda settlement.

    Competition Yakcomp 33: “Crossroad Junktion”

    Fun comp theme! Given I've just started making BFG stuffs, I sense a teeny space station or Blackstone Fortress in my future!

    Baconfleet Gothic - back to the Yak with tiny spehhs ships!

    Hello! I haven't been round as much since my diversion off to 40K and playing Necromunda less. Well, randomly, a friend decided we should start some BFG to add into our 40K campaign. Given the world going to pieces, I delved into my plasticard scraps and made this guy: Pretty damn happy...

    I was imagining a spiv type. Google "spiv coat" for the type of thing.

    Yaktribe Community Project #2 - Voting

    A few random ideas... - Not-Caryatids. Would be great to have some to decorate scenery/characters with. A pack with a few sculpts would be epic. - Servitor/Robot 'big bad' Think end of level boss style. His programming long since degenerated, and his mechanics replaced and upgraded over the...

    N17 Genestealer Cult Gang - White Dwarf

    Is Nu-cromunda worth playing? If so I may pick up this WD. If I just have to relearn rules and buy 19 books to make it work as hoped for I'll stick to NCE!
