so I’m looking to buy myself a small, bench top bandsaw to go with my scroll-saw. I want a really, REALLY small one (for cutting HD foam) as it’s not going in a workshop ... it’s going in my kitchen. I live in a bedsit so my kitchen doubles as a workspace. Or as my friend says ... I have a...
Inspired by @Resmire I’ve decided to keep a blog of the S.S. (Sump Ship) Doom-Barge, her crew, and her ancillary vessels.
I’ve recently been rewatching Firefly and re-reading The Tales of the Ketty Jay for inspiration and decided I wanted a main ship like Serenity/Ketty Jay with a pair of...
Just a reminder for those that might have missed it, (and those lucky enough to be in Oz) ...
Troll Bridge is out in January.
I think you can still get in on the download/DVD which should be released 1st November next year.
So ... its a mere 56 sleeps til Halloween 2018, and since I’m not allowed to take part in Yak 25 :( I figured I’d do something towards my favourite time of year.
For newer Yakkers, I love Halloween. Not your usual “I love watching Football”, not your Fanatical
“I love my Football Team!”, not...
EXHAUST / GUN BARREL TUTORIAL
This is all stuff I’ve either been shown how to do by other people (I’d seriously look out for others here on YakTribe like @Kiblams, @maxwellrpower, and @ClockworkOrange, and Ian “Wazz” Wyatt on YouTube).
I use a selection of tools such as these,
By now you’ve probably realised I’ve got a bit of a thing for Orks. From Bikes an’ Buggies to Dragsta’s and Dreadnaughts. My problem is (just like an Ork) I have no direction in my builds, be it what I assemble, what it’s armed with, or even where it’s eventually gonna end up. So .. hot off...
Having finished the music video, and before my Halloween stuff gets into full swing I’ve now got time to work on Yak #24.
Fuel and Fire means only 1 thing to an Ork Tread Head like me .... SCORCHERS!
A dirty great fuel tank on a dirty great weapons platform.
Luckily I’ve recently finished...
Many, many moons ago, I bought some packets of “loose” rivets to aid in my scratch building.
The white ones are 1.5mm and the Black 2mm.
I’m getting to the stage now where these 2 baggies are all that remains of my stock. Sadly I never noted down where I got these from, and as I’ve swum...
So ... I’m working on some props for Halloween (I know ... it’s only 304 sleeps away and I’m leaving it a bit late again) and I’ve been thinking about messing around with animatronics this year. A small haunted bookcase where the books move in and out, a severed Zombie hand drumming it’s...
Ladders and Ladder Rungs
Following a request here's a little step by step on how I make my Ladder rungs.
Tools and Materials:
Drill with drill bit (1.5mm)
Flat nosed pliers
16 gauge wire*
Hollow plastic Q-tips (ear buds) or styrene rod
1mm styrene sheet
Thought I'd share with you all another music video I was fortunate enough to be a part of.
Again, a lot of the stuff I was involved with is off screen, building the 'Black Room" for the actual filming, the backdrops, the tracks for the roller coaster car, and the castings of the skeletons.
Just a little reminder that tomorrow, 1st July, is Canada Day.
But not just ANY Canada Day ... this year we are celebrating 150 years of being a country. (Inconsequential compared to dear old Blighty I know, but its a pretty big deal for us.)
Us Canadians aren't as brash and "Gung Ho" as our...
As the title suggests I'm looking at getting another airbrush specifically for painting large areas (Large like A4 size) as I'm in the process of building a load of Sarissa / TT Combat town houses for a Zombie game I'm planning.
I paint inside (I live in an apartment) so don't want to use spray...
I don't have a lot, if any miniatures in my Bitz Box. In fact ... I don't really even have a Bitz Box. I have more of a Bitz Drawer as I don't really convert miniatures. Terrain is more my forte.
A more detailed look at some of the containers,
Plus of course my off cuts / Bitz of rod and...
As the title suggests, I'm after some ideas for attaching walkways and gantrys to various types of terrain.
My buddy and I are in the process of remaking all the terrain for our Wargaming club and we're trying to make it all as Squaddie Proof* as possible.
We're using a mixture of Cities of...
It's not really wargaming, but I helped a buddy of mine with a music video a few months ago. It's finally been released and I can at last talk about it:
My buddy is the Producer and previously did the video for Radioheads' "Burn The Witch". She originally asked me in to do a couple of...
