Something Must Have Happened....

... in the last half hour!

For various reasons the painting programme has pretty much stalled in recent weeks. The River Plate ships are almost finished, the next batch of winterised Eastern Front models are about half done (and have been for ages), but I have managed to finish a couple of items for my "Stingray" game. I've bought a few terror fish from Ebay in groups of 2 or three which have often included models with some degree of damage. By swapping bits (and by scratch building various fins) about I have eight intact fish, but thats left me with two that are damaged and have missing bits. So I decided to use these to make some sunken fish that can be used as objectives in games or just as nice bits of terrain.

I'm quite pleased at how these have turned out. I have also picked up a couple of very battered Stingays which will get similar treatment when I have the time. And then on to some more terrain in the form of some "buildings" for the undersea city of Titanica.

In the meantime the latest "Project X" has taken off, going from a rough idea to a high stage of development very rapidly. Watch this space......


  1. I used to absolutely enjoy the Stingray show when I was a kid. Another classic was Fireball XL 5. Good on you David for creating a Stingray Wargame. Very creative on your part!

  2. Hi, there. Are there any rules available for your 'Stingray' game? I'd be really pleased to hear further about this. Thanks.
