I bought this fantastic Gobleon from Ammon Miniatures at Salute 2013 and had forgotten all about it until a friend of mine suggested I painted my Rogue Trader Orks pink. I don’t really want Pink Bad Moon Orks, but i figured the Gobleon would be perfect in the role of The Pink Goblin!
I haven’t been to Salute since 2010 and I must say I was surprised how far the gaming industry has moved in those few years. It was also the first time in a while I caught up with Mocaiv and Artemis Black, who I learned has joined forces with HassleFree Miniatures. Below are a few photos from Salute, but for me it was new French and German Games that stole the show and I bought some of the amazing miniatures for the 45mm French game “Smog” and some of the funny miniatures for the new French game “Da Clash”.

This Goblin Gunner is my first crewman for my Goblin Pirate Clan. Normally when I start a new army I start by painting one of the characters as they are the coolest figures, but in this case this little fella in his trolley pulling “The Argument” was my first port of call. I’ve glued all my Pirate goblins on these awesome wooden bases from Micro Art Studio which I thought would give the Pirates a nice ship feel… but in this case I made a mistake with the bases. Can you see what it is? Yes, the boards on the baes…
I am a big fan of Neon Genesis Evangelion and I think Death Note is a brilliantly clever mange series, but nothing beats Battle Angel Alita. However, whereas the other two mentioned Japanese franchises have a spoiled choice for figures, Alita has close to none. In fact the only one I know of was a limited edition figure which was released when the mini series Gunnm: Another Stories was released… and now that figure and the boxset is mine.
My available time for painting miniatures has been severely limited the last few years so my hobby needs have been entertained elsewhere in a more solo-focussed hobby that is vinyl figures. This interest pretty much started in 2009 after a holiday to Tokyo but now with the newly redesigned Scrollmaster.net I’ve decided to open a section dedicated to Vinyl figures starting with my latest purchase: Mr Carl Fredricksen from the amazing Pixar movie “UP”
I first saw the Mr Carl Kubrick Fredricksen on Instagram and spent quite a while trying to find one up for sale. Just as I was about to give up, this double set popped on Amazon and it was an easy choice to get Mr Fredricksen to balloon in. This section will follow Carl’s adventures.
While my wargaming miniature hobby has a been standing almost still over the last few years due to my lack of available time to paint, I have thrown myself over another hobby, greatly inspired by recent holidays to Tokyo: Vinyl anime and Mange figurines. They may seem like an odd addition to this site, but for me they have been as much fun in a more solo-gaming way. I plan to photograph all of them individually at some point so keep an eye out.
