Re-Returning!

Well, after a much needed break I have come back from a trip to Hong Kong! I seem to do this once every few years it seems but this time was much more subdued than before. Still, it didn’t stop me from getting loot! It’s just not as much as before!

And here is […]

Blue flame of the Valkyria!

Yay! She’s finished, and just in time too cos I’m off on holiday for a week after this! In any case, here’s the completed Charagumin Selvaria Bles from Valkyria Chronicles!

like most Charagumin kits, she’s actually very quick to build and paint once you get going and because the parts are (mostly) molded in […]

Project: Selvaria (Part 2)

Just a very quick update on Selvaria this time. Thankfully, being a colour resin kit, painting has gone by very quickly since the parts are already molded in the correct colours (kind of).

Much of the detailing has been done now with just the cuffs needing to be done. After that, I just need […]

Project: Selvaria (part 1)

Sometimes, you just need to know when to take a step back for a bit. After lots of procrastinating and work on Homura which basically just led to the discovery of more faults which needed to be fixed… Volks finally put my ass into gear this weekend when they unveiled their 1/4 scale Selvaria Bles […]

The Alpha and the Omega

YAY! An actual modelling post! And trust it to be KOS-MOS who broke me out of the funk! It was the ver 4 Plamo from Kotobukiya before and this time, it’s ver 1!

KOS-MOS ver 4 is the darling of the series. She’s the best known design and the one which gets all the […]

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer garage kit highlights

Bit of a late post this week as I’ve been working on the Tomopop GK coverage. You can check them out for a more complete gallery of the GK at this years Summer Wonder Festival but for this post, I’ll be focusing on the ones which I liked the most. Starting with the 1 kit […]

Follow the Galaxy Fairy!

Just another quick post this time but I felt that this deserves a shoutout. As some of the more regular readers will know, I have a real soft spot for Sheryl Nome. She’s one of my favourite characters from any anime and I’ve built up a decent sized collection of figures of just Sheryl, which […]

Project: HomuHomu (part 3)

Just a very quick update this time around to show that progress is being made with Homura, albeit very slowly. The problem is that the parts quality is very low so after priming the parts, hundreds of airholes became visible on pretty much every part! The legs got it worst but I’ve been using liquid […]

Project: HomuHomu (part 2)

Man, it feels good to get back into painting a little. Even if it’s pretty basic stuff. I’ve now completed the base for Homura and have moved onto the main part of the kit. The lack of instructions on how to assemble the base was a pain but I think I managed to work it […]

And suddenly, LOOT!

Apologies for the lack of updates in recent weeks. A combination of busy busy busy followed by a long-ish holiday where I basically shut down meant that I haven’t really done much in terms of model building or gaming. Well, the gaming bit was a lie but I went back to some of my older […]
