Half-Timber Dovecote, Dampfpanzerwagon Style: Part One

Posted on April 25th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

As I mentioned in my last post about the things I brought home from Trumpeter Salute, one of them was a copy of Issue #87 of Wargames, Soldiers, and Strategy, their ECW special. One of the articles in there was by Tony Harwood, also known as Dampfpanzerwagon around the internet, including on the Lead Adventure … Continue reading Half-Timber Dovecote, Dampfpanzerwagon Style: Part One

Half-Timber Barn, Finally Finished!

Posted on April 13th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Way back in June of 2011, I started a fairly small half-timber barn for 28mm, for either my ECW/TYW stuff or early 20th C pulp gaming. I’d gotten most of the painting done on the building six years ago, then moved on to other projects as the 16th C ECW/TYW gaming failed to grab my … Continue reading Half-Timber Barn, Finally Finished!

Skirmish Swamp Table

Posted on April 6th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Swamp scenery for Skirmish games. I used the Lake town scenery pack and the Goblin town one from GW. The goblin pack required a bit of work as it was covered in bones and body parts unlike the Lake town one. I wanted to have a fairly generic looking wood so I scrapped all these bits offs. I might get some more to be able to make a bigger table but that’s a good start.

Une table de jeu pour jouer dans des marais. J’ai utilisé 2 kits de chez GW, village goblin et lac. J’ai nettoyé tous les débris sur le bois du kit goblin pour avoir un effet pas trop typé.


Silos for scenery – Thank you Morikun !

Some time ago, I entered an online challenge on Morikun’s blog like I had done before.
I was quite lucky to get a couple of rewards for my entry and amongst them a very nice lasercut mdf kit from Systema gaming.

Garden of Morr by GW

Posted on February 28th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I’m taking a break from all the Tabletop World scenery I’ve been doing recently to do some GW ones. The Garden of Morr is a kit I picked up a couple of years ago and it was time to do it. It offers many possibilities with lots of small bits, mausoleums and walls. It’ll be a great addition to the city.

Je fais une petite pause de la gamme Tabletop World pour faire du GW. Le “Jardin de Morr” est un kit que j’avais récupéré il y a 2-3 ans et il était grand temps de le faire. Un très bon set qui offre beaucoup de possibilités et très utile avec ses murs. mausolées etc…Une excellente addition pour ma ville médiévale.


More Jungle To Rumble In

Posted on February 20th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Scored another big paper towel roll from our recycling bin, so I decided to make a fallen tree instead of another upright one. Like the other trees, the fallen tree started with a paper towel roll, scrap cardboard, some CDs, and my hot glue gun. I made the root ridges lower so the tree would … Continue reading More Jungle To Rumble In

Asgard Barbarian – Model exchange program

Posted on February 8th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Some time ago, I managed to do a model exchange program. My mission was to take care of Hess poisonbreath in exchange for this classic Barbarian from Jes Goodwin when he worked for Asgard.
So a little time ago, I got this guy in the post.

BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 8

Posted on February 7th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Blomping along… Primer! Got the gondola spray-primed grey and the balloon envelope brush-primed black. The LAF Build Something 2017 contest rules ask that you not post painting progress photos of your project past the priming stage, so this will be the last photo anyone sees of the Blomp itself for a while. I’ll try and … Continue reading BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 8

In the Jungle, the Mighty Jungle…

Posted on February 5th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Several years ago now I did a whole banker’s box full of jungle terrain, but it was all fairly low-lying stuff, thickets and bushes and that sort of thing. I’ve always intended to add some bigger trees to the set, inspired by the nice trees DM Scotty does in this video… …and Dr. Mathias’ extravagantly … Continue reading In the Jungle, the Mighty Jungle…

BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 7

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

Greenstuff all over the place this time! I’ve started on the heavy leather harness that the troll uses to tow the Blomp along, as well as structural greenstuff to secure and cover the magnets in his base, hold the barrel in the right position, and secure the steel plate the barrel magnetizes to. There’s at … Continue reading BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part 7

BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part Six

Posted on January 31st, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Progress, the purpose of the troll revealed, and IT FLIES. Well, sort of! I got most of the structural parts of the base done today, barring more greenstuff putty to solidify everything. The big troll – an old prepainted WotC figure that I’ll be repainting – has a hole drilled between his shoulder blades and … Continue reading BS2017: The Bloodyear Blomp, Part Six
