The Assault Group ECW Artillery

The Assault Group (TAG) has a huge range of Thirty Year’s War/English Civil War/general Renaissance figures that I’d heard good things about, including that they were fairly compatible in size and style to the Warlord figures that make up the entirety of my TYW/ECW collection so far. The only major piece missing from my 17th … Continue reading The Assault Group ECW Artillery

Hope everyone had a good Labour Day long weekend, if that’s a thing for you, and a good return to school, if that’s a thing for you and your family! My hobby time has been really minimal the last while, both because the weather has been awesome, and because of whole piles of family stuff … Continue reading Modular River, Part Seven: Resin Complete!

Gradual progress on pouring resin into the river segments, doing one segment every night. I work on an old plastic cafeteria tray and cover the tray with a box lid to keep out dust, cat hair, the cat, and other household sources of lint, dust, and fluff that will happily glue themselves to freshly poured … Continue reading Modular River, Part Six: Resin Water Photos

Modular River, Part Five: Resin Water Effects

I had used basic hardware store 5-minute epoxy glue for the swampy pond test piece, and had more or less intended to just keep doing that for all ten river segments. I did the two smaller corner/curve river segments as a further test, and was really irritated when one of them came out all lumpy … Continue reading Modular River, Part Five: Resin Water Effects

Quick update on the river project! I’ve been taking a lot of summer holiday time recently, including all of last week away, so not a lot of progress or action, but there has been some, at least. I’ve got all the river segments except the bridge basecoated and drybrushed up, ready for foliage and then … Continue reading Modular River, Part Four: More Paint

Swampy Pond Resin Water Test

Posted on August 3rd, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

I started a pond as a test piece just before starting the whole river section project, and it’s been progressing one or two steps ahead of the rest of piece all along. Like the river pieces, the base is sheet plastic styrene with air drying clay for banks, and it was then covered in fine … Continue reading Swampy Pond Resin Water Test

Modular River, Part Three: Paint & Sand

Last time we saw the river modules, they were bare white plastic with clay banks. I’m happy to report that progress has been made! Nothing fancy, just a coat of black paint mixed with some white glue, then sand shaken over while everything was still wet. I’ll put another coat of paint and glue over … Continue reading Modular River, Part Three: Paint & Sand
