Welcome to my log of various modelling projects. I will eventually put some better site graphics up and play with the layout a bit but this is good enough for now. I am a 29 (clinging to it hard) year old fan of GW Specialist Games, the ones that were all the rage when I was younger, two decades ago in the 90’s (eeep). Of course these are now the red headed step children of GW but hey, they kicked out a lot of good games back in the day and below you will find the contents of my blog by game along with links to other great sites.

Necromunda
Death and desperation in a super city factory slum on crack. Necromunda is a great tactical game with the scenery being as much a factor as the models who fight.


Gorkamorka
Crash a hulk full of orks onto a planet, ruining its eco system and buggering the hulk in the process. More fluff, blah blah blah, orks fight each other on vehicles. An awesome tongue in cheek game.


Miscellaneous
Anything that does not fit in just one game.

  • Materials – The materials I use for terrain projects.

Good places to go!


I have written a score hider for when watching GamePass. It is a draggable black bar which you can resize and drag on top of GamePass (even in full screen). Just place it over the FOX/CBS score banner they usually have at the bottom of the screen and all you need to do is listen for the announces saying “Lets go for a game break”.

It is written in Java so you will need that installed. Sorry but I do not have time to explain that to you.

I have included the source as well as precompiled stuff.

You should be able to run it by double clicking on BlackBar.class (that works on OSX anyway). In Lion/M-Lion you may need to right click and open as Apple blocks double click of apps from developers not registered with them (which I obviously did not do for this). Otherwise go to the command line and type

Java BlackBar

Once you have run it you can enter the x and y sizes of the black bar and click OK, that will set the size of the bar, work that out for your own monitor / TV. Then just go full screen with Game Pass and drag it about to suit your needs.

This program is provided without warranty or suitability for purpose. If it breaks your computer, eats your children etc etc it is not my fault. Use at your own risk. If you are worried then learn Java, read the code and compile it yourself. To compile it in the command line type:

javac Blackbar.java

Updated Link

I will get this on Github or something more permanent.

When in fullscreen the black bar is still visible but the size controls are not.
