Cyberpunk Hover Car on DriveThruRPG

The Cyberpunk HoverCar kit is available on DriveThruRPG now. This kit lets you build two mix-and-match Cyberpunk Hover cars for your 28mm sci-fi tabletop. It’s the second kit in a series of street vehicles I’m working on, and the parts also mix with the Cyberpunk Compact Car kit for even more variety. The next kit I’m working to produce in this series will be either a sci-fi convertable with seating for 28mm or 1/56th figures, or a sci-fi urban taxicab.

The Loft Full Of Lead

It may not look like it, but I had a tidy up in the Loft Full Of Lead. I have been determined to get rid of some old stuff, but I am a terrible hoarder. I did make some progress and manged to fill a couple of boxes of crap to go to the skip. Last week, I even took some boxes of old terrain up to my games club, they have a nice large room to keeping terrain and the old ruins I had would at least get used now and then. There is still loads more clearing out to do and it will likely take a while yet…

Cyberpunk Compact Car on DriveThruRPG

The Cyberpunk Compact Car kit is available on DriveThruRPG now. This kit lets you build two mix-and-match Cyberpunk Compact cars for your 28mm sci-fi tabletop. It’s also the first kit in a new series of street vehicles I’m working on. The street vehicles kits will work together with each other in the same way my earlier truck kits do, giving you more vehicle options with each kit purchased. The next kit I’m working to produce in this series will be a flying / hover style sci-fi car that will include a stand. I’m also planning a police style cruiser and urban taxicab in the series.

Review: ERA Warfare Mgebrov-Renault Armored Car

David at ERA Warfare has released his 28mm 3D Printable Mgebrov-Renault Armored Car, and I had the pleasure of test printing and painting one for him. It’s available on DriveThru RPG now. The Mgebrov-Renault is an early armored-car, and around 11 were built in 1915. It is an interesting design both from a historical, and a war gaming point of view. I think David’s done a great job of capturing the unique look of the historical vehicle – and the detailing including rivets and hatchwork prints surprsingly well on an FDM 3D printer. I printed this on my Creality Ender 3 with a mixture of PLA from Wanhao and eSun. Rivet counters should be happy with the accurate design, and the vehicle also looks great on a Pulp or 30’s war gaming table. That’s why I couldn’t resist photographing it next to some of my own Pulp collection. He has plans to work up some more crazy Russian WWI/inter-war vehicles which I’m looking forward getting onto the paint station as well.

Oldhammer – The hunt – progress update

I am quite happy to announce, that my hunt on the Oldhammer stuff, that I covered a couple of days before, was rather successful. Via the introduced and mentioned channels I managed to acquire some interesting kits and spare parts to build the Imperial Guard retro project around. With the Basilisk it was a bit […]

Garbage Truck 28mm Work in Progress

It’s been pretty quiet on this blog, mainly because I’ve been hitting the Tabletop Terrain Facebook Page with updates. For the last month I had planned to work on a Light Armored Vehicle based on the existing chassis my earlier kits use. However somehow I got distracted building a Garbage Truck back end for the Outpost Utility vehicle. Sometimes I find parts and designs seem to flow naturally into Autodesk Fusion 360 without too much thought, and once that starts to happen rather I tend to just run with it, rather than fight the 3D design Muse. This Garbage Truck went together really quickly and I’m pleased with both the garbage compactor back end, and the slightly retro wheel fenders. So much so I couldn’t resist tweaking the earlier vehicles so they can use these new parts. This is something I usually try and do anyway, as a bit of a thank you to any customers that have bought the earlier kits – and (slightly less altruistically) because I want to mix and match parts myself.

For the fans I already did this, as each of them got a few lines of […]
