Terrain


MDF Chairs

Chairs at 28mm scale are a challenge, they are so damn small that they end up being rather fiddly to stick together. Especially when I am trying to avoid having any tabs on the seat part to keep a plain surface. The general design is the same, I have a few back sections for some variety. I’m not sure which I like the best.

Warhammer 40.000 Killzone: Sector Fronteris

A bit unexpected a new Killzone was released, the Killzone Sector Fronteris. So far, the existing Killzones were based upon already released terrain kits and repacked them with a solid bargain. The Sector Fronteris makes use of the STC Ryza Pattern design, that were first introduced with the Realm of Battle Moon Base Klaisus and […]

Go To Ground Wargaming Review – Urban Jungle

I have a review for you today – Go To Ground Wargaming Review. I’ve used Urban Jungle terrain from Go To Ground Wargaming in two games now. I love it! Let’s take a closer look… Never miss an article? Subscribe! I got one large set of Urban Jungle terrain. There is also a Fantasy Jungle terrain set, but the urban buildings felt more in keeping with Warhammer 40K. And this terrain seems very fitting now that my Catachans are taking shape in the form of three Cyclops Demolition Vehicles and three Hellhounds. Also got 30 Guardsmen on the way for […] The post Go To Ground Wargaming Review – Urban Jungle appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.

Shapeshifters, Cloud City Guards and pulp vehicles

A job lot of stuff rolled off the production line this week. First up are some more Imperial Assault expansion pack figures for this commission.These four figures are shape-shifters from the Clone Wars movie. I don't really recall this film, but what I do remember (from playing Lego Wii Star Wars with the kid) is these shapeshifters have something to do with how Kenobi gets to the Boba Fett factory with the weird long-necked ladies.Beyond the skin colour (green-yellow), there is no canonical look for these figures, so I went with bright and varied clothes and on two different bases. Apparently they can shape-shift their clothes as well so who knows what they might actually wear when going out to the bar or getting groceries.I'm pretty happy with the faces (above)--this seems to match the images I could find. Then onto the Cloud City pack with some of the guards.I'm pretty happy with these guys. Simple uniform, simple bases, nicely brought out with some washes.I have more of these guys plus some ugnaughts and

Showcase: Munitorum Armoured Container #2

I haven't considered something until this point. I've only just realised this by looking at this picture  and trying to decide what to write about another armoured container, barrels and crates. What I've realised is at the end of 80 issues of Conquest I'm going to be left with a gaming table full of terrain, but there is something else which I'll elaborate on after the jump. More after the jump

The Four Towers

For a tight games of Kill Team anf Rogue Stars, four towers makes for an interesting game. With the Kill Team obscured rule being nice and simple, a target is eitehr -1 to hit or not. This setup is three Pringle Towers and one self supporting Crosswalk Tower. I have also made a slightly higher ground tile for some variation. Just wait until you see what is next!

Walmington on Bromley End, Bloodford - Homes for the Home Guard

As I slowly move through my lead pile of things Home Guard related, the realization set in that I would need terrain and a fair bit of it if I wanted to replicate Dad's Army, Went the Day Well or The Eagle Has Landed. I toyed with making up buildings out of foam core and other materials but practically, that wasn't a realistic option. With some Christmas money in hand, I went shopping. There are many good manufacturers out there with some very nice products in 28mm / 1/56. Some of the resin offerings were beautiful but expensive, and for many companies, their UK styled offerings were focused on terraced housing.I decided to go with Sarissa primarily because of their very generous shipping terms and because they ship Royal Mail. (As mentioned in a previous post, courier companies like to gouge Canadians for customs fees). The order was placed and a few weeks later, my order arrived in my mailbox. It came in two separate packages, both properly marked as to contents and value and with no import fees payabl

Review: Merchant Shop from Tabletop World

The Merchant Shop is the latest addition to Tabletop World's range of medieval/fantasy buildings. In this blog post I take a closer look at the model and explain why I believe that it is their best building yet.In November last year, Tabletop World (TW) released the Merchant Shop. I own nearly all of the many buildings that were released over the years and I have to say that this one stands out. Literally. TW already said it in their announcement on Facebook:The Merchant Shop fromTabletop WorldWe proudly present you our new Merchant Shop in heroic scale! This is the first in the line of models that will take your gaming experience to the next level! Apart from highest attention to detail we had game-play in mind when creating the model. You can easily use it with miniatures that are in 28-32mm scale. The whole building has plenty of space to move your miniatures around, with several floors connected with stairs. All doors, window shutters and hatches are hinged and fully operational so you can

Dumpsters and a library table

I made a rare trip to a model train store before Xmas and was unable to locate any of the buildings on my to-get list (including a stone church, a city hall or court house, and a bank). I did find some HO-scale dumpsters, though!These were three for $12 and about the only accessory that didn't cause my jaw to drop ($40 for a tow truck? really?). So I bought these along with some two-part modelling putty. They painted up okay and will add some nice LOS blocks.Back in early December I also picked up another WizKids' terrain pack from Red Claw. This included a library table and four stools. The table has a tiny bit of warping (no luck using hot water to bend it flat). That said, I'm reasonably happy with the results.I'm not sure what will get painted next--I hav some 25mm Cthulhu figures I got from Chen that have been eyeing me from the painting table (and they have lots of eyes).

Treasure Markers - something to fight for! // Znaczniki celów bitewnych

Battle/Target markers for miniature wargaming. They will be used mostly in Dragon Rampant and Advanced Song of Blade and Heroes. Coblestone bases were made by me and bits were produced by various miniature manufactures. As long as I remember these were Ristul's Extraordinary Market, Fireforge Games, minimonsters.eu, Games Workshop and  Perry Miniatures.Znaczniki celów stworzone do wykorzystania w kilku grach. Myślę że dobrze sprawdzą się w czasie potyczek w Dragon Rampant, Advanced Song of Blade and Heroes oraz okazjonalnie do gier planszowych i D&D. Podstawki zrobiłem sam natomiast bitsy pochodzą od kilku różnych producentów: Ristul's Extraordinary Market, Fireforge Games, minimonsters.eu, Games Workshop oraz Perry Miniatures.
