Last week I got a macro lens for my camera so have been busy photographing conversions that I have done using Albedo Miniatures heads and bodies from my bits box. I have created a new gallery for the images and have added a note for each one saying what parts were used.

Thanks for your feedback David,

We'll look into those points and get back to you, glad you are enjoying the game.
See you at Salute where hopefully we will have a couple of exciting new releases!

Next Saturday (2nd March),  Doug and I will be running an ACP164 Participation game at Hammerhead Show in Newark.
If you are in the UK, it is well worth a visit. It's the best show in the year for gaming as every game put on is a participation game.

Hope some of you can join us!

Glad you like the vehicles.
We've just added crew sets, an alternative turret and vehicle stowage sets.
As these are now available we have up-moddeled our example models to include these as well as markings and weathering.
Ann has even made a quick 20 second video for each vehicle.
Check them out @

The scenery sets will be very modular, here at Sally 4th we have been designing / developing modular scenery sets for many years and have lots of ideas to feed into this,
I love realistic terrain to fight over, so I'm pretty sure we will be including furnishings for the ships and space stations.

Skirmish Infantry packs come with 3 random heads selected from 2 bare headed and 2 ILR service cap variants.
Garrison troop back contain one each of 3 variants of the ILR Garrison peaked cap.
Available now from


This week Doug and I have started sorting out our participation game for this years Hammerhead show at Newark Showground on 2nd March, which is played using Albedo Combat Patrol

The situation on the ground is that ILR Planetary Invasion forces have landed on and around major population centers on Coralaus Prime. ConFed Coralaus Homeguard forces were pushed back after intense firefights.

Over subsequent weeks the ILR consolidated there positions, digging in (bunnies are good at that), around strategic sites, such as the Government buildings and media hub featured in our counterattack game, which sees elements of an Extra Planetary Defense Force (EDF) Mech Company, landed outside engagement range via Aerodynes moving forward in a deliberate assault to recapture these strategic sites.

January 2019 New Release: Homeguard (Otter) reinforcement pack.

 Pack contains 3 x EDF Light Infantry armed with LAKW 1-56 Assault Rifles and mix of Otter heads (beret / bare headed)

In Albedo the Home Guard covers a wide range of troop types from untried militia through to elite special forces units. The term Home Guard signifies that the unit is part of the defense forces of the particular planet rather than part of the Extra Planetary Defense Force (EDF) who are off world reinforcements / advisors. Both male and female critters can be found serving within a planet's Home Guard. Home-guard troops are less well armored than EDF forces. The figures in our Home-guard packs contain a random assortment of male and female poses wearing light armor and home-guard berets.

I really like your painting style, painting in oils sounds like a whole new level of complexity.
It would be great if you could put a quick article together at some point about how you do it.




Just painted up this young lady for my Anthropomorphic Pulp Alley league this week. The body is from our own Classic Movie Miniatures range - The Daughter from the Take the High Road pack, to which has been added the Erma conversion head which will be available generally, very soon. I'll be posting photos of the rest of the conversions that make up the league next week.
