Easy Terrain – Wrecked Cars

The 1/72ish scale figures I’m now using for Deathzap are a good match for your standard discount shop toy cars. Destroyed civilian vehicles aren’t often something you see on a gaming table but I think they add a lot, they take a set up from an arena for doing battle to a place people actually […]

Kay – Story Battle Report

The war ground on, unrelenting, unforgiving. Oltra a once promising mining colony was now nothing more than a burned out husk, an industrial corpse. SynJen were on the verge of pulling out of Oltra all together, and giving up entirely on Kannis as more and more soldiers of House Baronor and the Jendari Collective were […]

Homemade Acrylic Gaming Mats

I played a game of Deathzap 3 this weekend which I’ll be writing up shortly. I played it out on a portion of dust sheet I’d hastily sprayed rivers, wooded areas and roads on. It did the job, but I was aware from several YouTube videos that people use dust sheets to make their own […]

Saturday Morning Starcrash Sprues

Starcrash from Roger Corman, directed by Luigi Cozzi and starring Marjoe Gortner, Caroline Munroe, David Hasselhoff and Christopher Plummer is probably my favourite Star Wars cash in film of that era. It sits awkwardly between two eras of sci-fi imagination. There’s clear influence from the more lived in and realistic appearance of Star Wars, and […]

Oltra Burns Again

In the interest of starting up some Deathzap 3 again I’ve been amassing forces. Representing the SynJen were my previously seen Rin Empire platoon, but to back them up I’ve added a platoon of Volkovian Knights and a Beam Tank: For the A.L.L I’ve actually only built Gnossian forces, again you’ve seen my Sector Army […]

Polishing a Turd

A long time ago after being inspired by the Man of Tin blog I grabbed my first tub of Poundland Army Men and painted some of them up as an unknown sci fi force: Later on I dubbed them the Allegiance of Gnossos and Deathzap was born. What this little project did though was make […]

The History of Jendar

Having been knocked out by my second covid vaccine and with a couple of busy weekends I’ve been unable to get much done in the hobby, but this time has given me the opportunity to try and work out some of the history of Deathzap and mainly the planet of Jendar. The timeline below is […]

North and South Cameria go to War!

Thinking I’d make use of the some of the figures seen in my last post I’ve embarked on a long intended project within the Deathzap universe, that being the Camerian Civil War. I’ve started by painting two simple skirmish forces of North and South Camerians using the old Airfix Afrika Korps and 8th Army. First […]

Buried Treasure!

My Aunt and Uncle sent me a package this week. I enjoyed looking at the box quite a bit, but I wasn’t ready for what was inside: I let out a childhood squee when I saw the sort of thing that I enviously see in the possession of the Man of Tin. I formed piles […]

Bog Roll Wraiths

I think I found an opponent for my Elemental Knights, although I don’t think I’ll call them Bog Roll Wraiths. Loo Paper Lichs perhaps? The figures I used were the standard low quality plastic knights you find littering discount shops. The quality of the figures is significantly lower than the other cheap knights that I […]

Elemental Knights

Sometimes I just do things for fun, strange I know. Ever since I was a kid playing with toy knights on my bedroom floor I’ve loved the plate armour look. Thankfully to scratch that itch alongside your average poundshop toy soldier with their WW2-ish kit, you can often find bags of 54mm, or 1/32 knights […]

Different Kinds of Chrome

As mentioned in my previous post, I had some more figures coming my way from Irregular, figures which were going to be painted up in different kinds of monochrome. The first were my ‘Metal Men’, which included a Battle Robot from their 15mm sci-fi range I’ve dubbed Killborg and a Battle Robot from their 28mm […]

Wasteman

Wasteman is a fun little skirmish game originally put out by Thunderchild Miniatures and now on Old School Miniatures. It’s a fast and bloody game, with lots of random occurrences and strange twists and turns. The miniatures are probably my favourite thing, they’re nice chunky sculpts with good detail and not covered in overly complicated […]

ASHNYR

Ashnyr was colonised at the same time as Jendar. When the Jendari pilgrims settled in the Xolar system it was determined that a few smaller ships would split off from the main fleet in order to begin colonisation of other habitable planets within the Xolar system. This was a security measure as no one knew […]

Selenoids, Prosecutors and a Map

So since I last posted all the rules up for Deathzap 3 I’ve been frantically attempting to build some of the forces listed especially the stranger ones, and I’ve also been keen to grow and develop the Xolar System and all its planets. My first new force were the Selenoids, this was not a difficult […]

Deathzap 3

So I’ve been working over the past week on something fairly sizeable, it wont have any pictures but it is something I’ve had a few comments and messages about, so here goes, as always questions, comments and suggestions are very much appreciated, the current state of affairs rules wise and fluff wise for Deathzap: THE […]

Getting Back Into Deathzap

Since the big Oltra campaign I played out a good while ago I’ve been constantly attempting to get back to the Deathzap universe but I’ve always struggled. I think that’s largely because I wanted Deathzap to be something it never should be my own Warhammer 40k. In actuality what Deathzap is and should always be […]
