Printed Platforms and Ladders

Posted on January 21st, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I’m continuing work on my post apocalyptic table for This is Not a Test. I’m trying to improve the vertical possibilities of the table by adding some height and climbing surfaces to game over. TnT’s rules are fairly brutal, requiring a lot of game time to make unaided climbs – so I’m also printing and […]

Following on from the Deathwatch and the sentinels I finished up two future containers. These pieces of scatter terrain have been knocking around for years. Whereas I’d completed six of them and been using them in games these two had stalled because I …

 I’ve been on a bit of a tear making geomorphic Dungeon terrain for this year’s Challenge.  I thought it might be helpful to put up a short tutorial on how to make these sections. Please note I’ve “borrowed” (OK, stole) the technique from Jer…

Mixed Bag 8: Tying Up the Loose Ends

Posted on January 14th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

This past week was kind of my first week back in the real hobby world, as opposed to having time off and spending most of it painting. As a result, it was more about finishing things up than anything else, but I managed to get a lot of projects off my …

One Down, Three To Go

Posted on January 14th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

The first of the 24″ square boards is finished, plenty of dry brushing has completed it to a suitable standard.

I reckon when all four are done, I may have to touch areas up when they are all laid out together.

Warhammer 40,000 STC Ryza Pattern Ruins

Along with the Necromunda Release, Games Workshop put a lot of suiting terrain on the market. As a “entry” product, with a low price barrier the STC Ryza Pattern Ruins caught my eye and were added to my terrain collection, for their generic yet very 40k like style. This kit gives you four larger ruin […]

In this tutorial, I’m going to share terrain building skills I learnt in the 1990s from reading White Dwarf articles. This build is directly inspired from the article in White Dwarf issue 180 with some modern twists. After the jump, this tutorial will fully explain in detail how I made the ruins in the picture above.

This New Year it was time to replenish my stock of sand for my figure basing. I use a very specific type of sand that comes from a particular beach in New Zealand. So I drove the 600 kilometres to … Continue reading

Painted 28mm Arcade Machines

Posted on January 5th, 2018 under , . Posted by

I designed and printed a handful of these 28mm scale Arcade Machines late 2017. During the Xmas break, I’ve cleared five of these fun little terrain pieces off my paint station. I considered finding official cabinet art and trying to scale it down, but I suspect the cabinet sides are too small, and the wrong […]

Inking the Cobbles

Posted on January 5th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I have found some time to splash a bit of ink onto the first of the cobble boards. To give a bit of variation, I have used two different inks and tried to vary the level of cover across the area. Darker than I wanted, but some drybrushing should bring out the look I am … Continue reading Inking the Cobbles

Wallpapering The Stairs

Posted on January 4th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I decided for a different approach with covering the prototype port stairway, instead of folding paper over the side edges, I trimmer the paper to fit after it was glued. Only the steps had the paper folded over the edge. Will have to see how this looks. Advertisements

Building A Stairway To Heaven

Posted on December 27th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Well, maybe not quite heaven, just the 8cm up to the cobbled harbour level.
This is the first attempt, 1cm high steps with each step being 3cm wide, enough for most bases. It is now wallpapering time.
I have some plans for more stairways that are a bit…
