    My club uses the group.io list and it works well for us. But we are exploring things like running a calendar through our word press blog to assist with organising games.

    Hand painted and varnished, you can read all about them here:

    The picture above and the one on my website show they look exactly the same
    after all this time 🙂

    Here you go, dug them out since you asked nicely 🙂

    I cannot remember how old these actually are, at least 15 years old, and loads of people told me they would rot and go mouldy if I painted them!

    Yes it’s been a while. I’d love to expand the 2mm range, as ever it’s just finding the time.

    Same here, reused the same sticks for years!

    Definitely paint then base regardless of unit bases or individual figures, the only time I did bases before the miniatures was when I did my scratchbuilt robots.

    And that was because I had so many to do it was much faster to do the bases without having to paint and glue round the miniatures legs.

    Cheers, this was a fun sculpting project. Nice to see it’s still available for people to enjoy.

    In the back of my head, filed in the “Perhaps, someday, maybe when I retire and have endless time” section, is a conversion of the old Metagaming boardgame “Rivets” to miniatures using those 2mm armour castings that Mr Average mentioned. They had such charm!

    I was approached to make some Rivets miniatures (I didn’t take up the offer to make some knock off copies), I think I’ve got a copy of the game here somewhere!

    I always wanted to see your 2mm scale tracked vehicles come out in metal. The 2mm line were what got me into small scales and I still love them good!

    Sadly I don’t think they will ever make it into production.

    Cheers, still got a lot of content to add, and a number of projects on the go.

    Those blobs look great, it’s good to see others putting the hot glue gun to good use, it’s not just for sticking things!

    I used a hot glue gun to make some blob men, couldn’t do them translucent thought as they have an armature inside that I dripped the hot glue over.

    Brilliant, every fantasy gamer needs to stick the sticks together, it’s like a rite of passage!

    Though they did go a bit bendy with the ink wash… 😐

    That’s interesting, I just spray undercoated mine and painted them as any other miniature.
    Part of one did break in a fall from about 4 feet but I’d have expected resin to chip falling like that onto a hard floor.
    Otherwise all still as the day I painted them.

    People thought painting the pasta would make it wet and therefore rot. But that never happened.

    Those fences look good Mike, spaghetti not too brittle?

    Not worried about this rotting. Given how it will be stored and used it will probably out last me
    Although lots of people claimed at the time my alien plants made out of pasta would rot, but 9 years later and they are showing no signs of decay.

    Back in 2011!

    Nice! I think it works better than if one had been made out of twisted wire or something. The natural nuances just can’t be copied.

    That’s what I thought, I could not sculpt that, nor could I have created such a realistic looking paint job

    All this talk is making me think of 3mm scale gaming again… Whatever happened to the tracked versions of your 3mm scale vehicles, Germy? Would have loved to have some of them. Also add me to the list of people who want to see your 3mm scale game rules!

    Your best bet is to get in touch with GZG and see if Jon will put them in production.

    Email me so I have your address and I’ll send a copy of the rules.

    I would love to see the rules, Germy.

    I thought I’d already sent you a copy? Happy to send again.

    That’s great news. Your website and 2mm figures have brought hours of pleasure to the household.

    If you want a look at the rules I’ve been writing for the 2mm stuff let me know.

    Tank Girl and Booga miniatures?!? If there’s a Barney I’m in!

    No Barney, but you’ll not get a Tank Girl or Booga anywhere else

    Spent the last week putting this fleet together and painting it. It’s made from spare 40k Tyranid pieces that I paid £20 for.          

    Nicely done, I think this one is my favourite
