About Me

A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Sever Years War armies).

Finished: Arcade for Judge Dredd

It's taken a little bit longer than anticipated to finish this (mainly because I had forgotten that the layered approached to adding posters, graffiti and weathering takes quite a bit of additional time), but it is done. As you can see from the photo, it's quite a large building.

A couple of the graffiti decals I used were the ones I had printed on white decal paper (but weren't the ones I had more carefully scored around to minimise the white around the edges.

I've just realised that I forgot to take a photo of the interior at the end. I did take a couple after assembly though:

The kit comes with three MDF arcade game machines, which I have assembled and primed:

I'll get them painted up in the next few days. They will be a stop-gap until I can get some 3D printed ones (I have the files, just need to get them printed by someone).

I also added one of the white-backed decals to one of the darker shipping containers from a few eeks back, to see how they look:

They definitely work much better than the ones done on clear decal paper (which end up rather muted). I think I will use them for "fresh" graffiti and the ones I had printed on clear paper for older stuff.


  1. Very nice and game friendly! I didn't know Joe had a gambling habit...

  2. The arcade looks excellent Tamsin, and the new transfers are much more vibrant, great idea to use the two types for old and fresh graffiti

  3. That looks so good Tamsin! Love the graffiti and weathered look. Superb job.

  4. @ Herkybird - thanks! He's going in to check out the new "Dredd vs Death" video game! ;)

    @ Dave Stone - cheers! :)

    @ Mattblackgod - thanks! :)

    @ Alastair - cheers! :)

    @ Ray - thanks! :)

    @ Michael A - cheers! :)

    @ Whisk - thanks! :)

  5. That weathering is superb. Makes me want to go back and touch up some of my buildings!

    1. Thanks! The stages I go through are:
      add posters and graffiti
      seal with gloss (I use Pledge Multi surface Polish through the airbrush)
      repeat using lighter shades of washes and drybrushing paints
