I was born in London in the mid sixties! And have been  making model kits since 1969. These days I mainly paint 28mm Figures, mainly ancient Romans and Greeks, which is great  because I am into Ancient History in a big way. I dabble in fantasy figures too and have been known to paint and convert HeroQuest figures for other people! I will be using this blog to chart my progress in my various painting projects.
When not painting I have a little internet hobby business .
I support Arsenal, am a big fan of the original prisoner tv series.
I cook for myself, wife and daughter……….Love both wine and beer…though not together!
I don’t have a mobile, and I’m not into facebook etc, a Blog is as socially networked as I get!

    Love the site. I have a pretty sizeable collection of Micromachines Trek minis from the 90s I’ve never done anything with. I recently started developing a game system to use with them and came across this site. I’d appreciate your thoughts on the game system.


    I have a sample scenario and a few ship sheets worked up as well. If you’d lie to contact me about it I’m at simon dot hibbs at gmail dot com.

      Hi Simon, thank you for your comments and apologies for not getting back to you sooner.
      I’ll have a look at your document in more detail when i have a moment!
      I’m back to writing rules for this with my brother and we haven’t had time to sit down and put stuff together in a while. we are going to get some stats cards produced/printed properly and some laser cut tokens, we’re quite exicted by the prospects of having our own custom game but haven’t got anything actually moving yet beyond planing!

    I am a researcher on the BBC series Coast, and I’m really interested in some of your historical figures. I’d be very grateufl if you dropped me an email at dan.clarke03@bbc.co.uk.

    Many thanks

    Great website. I especially appreciate your Federation fleet. Where did you get those Sovereign class ships in 1/7000?

  • Richard Venn

    Is there any chance I can encourage you to make and sell any more No 6 figures and models
    I have brought and asembled the ones on the Unmutual site, but I found it too late to get anything else
    Many thanks
    Kind regards
