MDF


Statue Base

I decided some of my town setups needed some statues to add a bit of character, so I created a simple mdf plinth. This design has actually been made for a Salute freebie model but I have tested it out on this random geezer on a horse. I have a bunch of Salute giveaway models from over the years and plan to make plinths to fit a variety if model sizes.

Office Block

The Mark II version of the Office Block has a different stair entrance. For this model I also added the corner stonework which I painted a good contrasting colour. The roof and interior floors are just paper images found on DIY websites and printed, cheating I know, but it works for me! There is a Mark III with double doors at the front, but I don’t have one cut yet.

Office Block Prototype

The original office block I designed has a different stair configuration that did not look as good as I had hoped when I actually came to build it. But it was still more than usable, so it has been inked to within an inch of its life. The flash has bleached out the pavement a bit, but I think I will go back and draw in the lines.

MDF Building Marathon

Most of the MDF tower models I have built over the last few months have been for Jim to use on his Products For Wargamers stand at games shoes. I am now getting around to building some for myself. This time around, I thought I would paint components before I stick anything together. There is plenty to do, I plan to paint and then build three standard height Industrial Processing Towers (with Pringles tubes) and one double height tower. All the towers will link together with ground level sections all designed to make one large industrial setup for use in 40K, Rogue Stars and Kill Team. I just need to see how long it will all take.

......especially as they're really 20mm!Always looking for 15mm scenery for my gaming projects and my interior gaming detail, I have a mix of 6mm, 10mm, 15mm, HO , 28mm and now 20mm scale from Blotz.They come in a pack of 4 for £2.00, easy enough to put together without any provided instruction (there are some on the website)...... Forgot to take a picture of my ones, these are from Blotz website......Then decided for some reason to make bedding, decided pillows would be more than enough, then decided on sheets/quilts........Then painting happened, hopefully some disarray was shown......Colonial Marine sleeping arrangements perhaps......Weyland Yutani engineers and scientists as well perhaps.........15mm Rebel Mini to help show scale, I cut one of the bunk beds in half to further develop sleeping options......15mm Khurasan as well........I think they turned out well enough for the scale and perfect for filling those underground complexes or dark alien hulks to scout..... Nice bit of kit from Blotz!

Earlier this year, Warbanner released a boxed starter set for their ancient skirmish game Gangs of Rome called Blood on the Aventine. This is a scenario based set, covering all you need to get into the game and covers quite a lot of content. At a price point of 35 GBP it is very reasonable […]

Colours 2018

Yesterday was Colours at Newbury, usually an event I look forward to, Salute and Colours are my two essential shows each year as they are nicely about six months apart. I guess I was not in the right frame of mind to go to Colours anyway, I did not have anything in particular to pick up, in fact for the first time in years, I did not even take a shopping list. Overall, I found the show a bit disappointing, several retailers I like to pay a visit to were absent and there was not much else to grab my attention. The crowd seemed less and I found myself wandering around aimlessly… The highlight for me was to see my various MDF towers on display and on sale at Products For Wargamers. Also there was a new spiral staircase, looks good, but tricky to build. So all I bought were some paints, some big brushes for terrain, a couple of resin machines for scenery and ONE miniature, ONE I tell you! That was just some random historical bloke on a horse that I will as a statue… All was not lost, on the way home
