New Blog

I've decided to move my wargames posts over here.
They were getting crowded out on my display figure site.

This blog will focus only on wargames figures, while One Tonne Automaton concentrates on the large scale Sci-Fi.
I'll be keeping to a roughly once a month update schedule, to give me more chance to have something worth putting up.

Let me know what you think about the layout. :)

Next Post: A 15thC Bombard and maybe some Samurai too :)

PK Cameraman

First fully completed model of my SS unit and its a non-combatant!

Contrary to what I've read this Model has no weapon at all, not even a sidearm.
So armed to the teeth with his Arriflex 35 here is my Propagandakompanie figure.


I may convert a armed version in the future, a pair of binos would turn easily into a Leica camera.

Progress continues on the Sd.Kfz 250/8.
The bolts down one side are a bit wonky, but it won't show too much once its painted..

28mm SS part III

No particular unit, just generic SS.

Tudor Tubthumper

A drummer conversion for my Bill regiment.


Perry ACW drummer arm cut off at the shoulder, and puffy sleeve top added.
ACW drum and a cut, pinned, and repositioned bow arm.
A little bit of greenstuff for the elbow, and a new thumb.
The strap is made from two panel pins, a couple of loops of brass wire, and some green card stiffened with CA glue.

I have another arm and drum for my next 'Battle', so more Tudor tubthumpers to follow :D

Oh and I've removed comment moderation.

Wars of the Roses

No updates the last two weeks, Christmas got in the way.

Got two boxes of Perry Wars of the Roses from Santa. :D

Here is the first box put together on my nice new glass shelf unit.

Some closeups:



The first conversion WIP, a drummer for my Men at Arms:

Using the drum and drumsticks arm from the Perry ACW boxed set.

I've split them into 3 units of 24, two of archers and one of bill.
I think I'll paint all three regiments in the same colours, then the next three can be a different lord, to give the regiments of each 'Battle' a sense of being shire or county levies.
