Here is our latest video review of the fantastic Easy and Simple Mk20 SSR (Sniper Support Rifle):
I know I haven't published much on here recently, but with so much going on in 'the real world', my hobby has taken a bit of a back seat at the moment. Had a few minutes last night to play around with some lighting and camera settings, and the chosen subject was Selena Kyle, one of the few HT figures I own. Enjoy!
This one is going to be a 'YouTube' only review with no written accompaniment, but I think you will get the general idea... Enjoy!
Here is our little video review of the latest release from ZC World, the NYPD Officer 'Murphy'. A fanastic figure and something unique and refreshing from the usual...
Check out our latest YouTube video review of the excellent Vallon VMH3CS Mine Detector by Greenwolf Gear :
Whilst we're in the middle of the full write-up for the ZC World Weapons set review, here is something a little 'visual' to whet your appetite:
This is a very quick (5 minute) weathering tutorial that I shot the other day, which demonstrates the technique known as dry-brushing. Whilst it's not to be considered as a 'master class', it does serve well to help you visualise what is going on. Enjoy!
Well, you may have noticed the website has been a little quiet on the news front? That's because I've decided to a take a little break from trying to keep up with constantly churning out new reviews and update the front-page, whilst still enjoying my hobby. Don't worry, we're not going anywhere, just taking a well earned break!
So, haven't quite got around to writing the 'written review' element of this figure, but in the meantime here is a YouTube video review of the Art Figures 'Biochemical Expert' (Nicholas Cage from 'The Rock'). Check it out, and don't forget to subscribe to the channel:
Plus, we also did a litle did a little bit of a 'retro review' of an older Dragon figure, the WW2 German NCO 'Hans Leiter'... With a twist! We took the existing figure and upgraded it somewhat with some careful weathering and a body/head swap-out, take a look and see if you like the results:
Whats coming up in the near future? Well, we've got planned a couple of video tutorials for head sculpt re-painting and one covering weathering techniques. Stay tuned for those soon!
