Kickstarter - Gunfighter's Ball, Knuckleduster Miniatures
A very large, very damaged box arrived full of stuff from Knuckleduster's kickstarter. I have been eagerly awaiting its arrival! While this kickstarter delivered late, I don't let that upset me anymore. There are so many factors that contribute to not meeti...

Sledgehammer Project; Preparation Pt VI - Collecting Materials
I woke up at 2:30am the other day and couldn't get back to sleep. During that time I managed to think my way through the process of creating masters for defensive fortifications that I need for the diorama. I did take a look around for some of the resin pie...
