Artel W Miniatures: Assassin (28mm)
by: Andras  |  Vendor:
The recent advances in 3D printing have created a boom in the cottage industry of resin figures. You can now find better and better quality figures produced for wargaming, and characters from popular culture (books, movies, comics or video games). We do live in a golden age right now, as often times we get alternatives for wargaming miniatures; and sometimes -as in this case- it means we get a figure at all. (I would love to have a miniature version of a T-54 power armor from the Fallout series holding a mini nuke launcher, for example.)


This article reviews such a video game character by Artel W Miniatures: the master assassin. The figure depicts the ex-bodyguard Corvo Attano from the game Dishonoured by Bethesda, wearing his signature mask and carrying his signature weapons - without explicitly stating so. Since I tremendously enjoyed the game for both of its gameplay, and for its excellent story and setting, I was happy to order one of these figures when I saw it on Artel W Miniatures’ website.

Chaos Hive Bringer (28mm)
by: Andras  |  Vendor: Grim Skull Miniatures
There is a small cottage industry focusing on producing figures and other accessories for popular tabletop games. Warhammer 40K is no exception. One prominent company producing resin alternatives and conversion sets is Grim Skull Miniatures; their Hive Bringer (khm… Tyhpus) is the subject of this review.


Games Workshop has a newly issued (plastic) chaos-corrupted version of Typhus, so there are definitely choices out there. This particular figure is absolutely gorgeous. He holds either a scythe or two sickles (these held in reverse John Woo style), and he definitely looks corrupted. The detail and definition is simply superb. All the cysts, boils and blisters are lovingly re-created, alongside with the horns sticking out of the cracks of his power armor.

Rolling Ball Timer
by: George Redell  |  Vendor: Academy
The Rolling Ball Timer by Academy is the newest addition to the Da Vinci line of kits. The Ball Timer is based on a sketch of an escapement mechanism drawn by Leonardo Da Vinci. The kit uses the principles of gravity and kinetics to measure the passage of time. It employs precision gears to power a platform in a “see saw” pattern that propels a rolling ball. When complete, it exhibits concepts relating to the laws of motion and delivers hours of entertainment.   >> READ MORE
