Leto 2

#Leto2 has been on the workbench forever now, asking for paint, how could I say no? Just base colors now, sloppy washes to warm up the skin tone #dune #miniature


Castle Greyskull pt1

Challenging myself to make a quick castle from scrap this was about an hour in #castlegreyskull #miniature #terrain
. . .

Some inspiration;


Orkbots

Base colors applied to these two #ork #robots #40k #miniature #roguetrader


Cawl

Starting to paint #cawl this model is intense! So many spidery limbs and cables, I’ve got to do him in sections.
More progress on #Cawl I was able to put all his little arms and wires on and get them painted up. A few parts so small I had to bring out the tweezers. Just one more round of details… isn’t that what I always say?

Post Apoc Stripmall pt2

I wanted some signs and banners for the #stripmall #model so I chopped up some junk mail and made some #collage.

Think these will bring in some bright colors and liven it up a lot. It’s definitely odd working at this size but fun and I could chop with abandon since its was trash anyway, no need to be precious #trashbash #terrain
. . .Someone called Vince Michael at the Inq group on facebook has been doing excellent terrain and a feature thats popped up for me a few times now has been the little prayer flags, so I thought I’d add a few here as well, its a nice way to bring in a bit of color and texture.

I attached a fan mesh to the roof and bent it up, added the #collages inside the exterior window displays and chopped up some clear blister pack plastic to make smashed windows.

. . .I’m adding a mixture of sand, cement, and plaster chips for the ground texture and to blend things together. #wasteland #terrain #miniature

Fired up the #airbrush a bit, starting to build up base colors on the #strip mall and objectives, I wish I’d learned the silly putty masking trick earlier could have saved so many rolls of tape #model #terrain #painting

Post Apoc Stripmall pt1

It seems like every #postapocalyptic gang must get their costumes from sporting goods stores and sex shops, so any good apoc landscape has to have a strip like this. It’s a long way to go for a joke but I’m amused.

I found an interesting bit of packaging material, cut off a chunk of it and decided to make a #miniature strip mall. I used a few #trashbash doors misc hardware and a cookie tray for the roof, and stamped out names with an old label maker.

The little alcoves will make good window displays, and I feel like it’s taking shape quickly. #terrain #wargaming #model #stripmall

Since the #stripmall has an opened side I’ll need something for the interior. I’m not ready to undertake making full shops for this one, and just cramming it with rubble feels like a cop out, so closed shops with security gates and tarps it is!
. . . I’ve got to get this in here before mounting it to a base, so I flipped it over and bent a scrap of mesh for the gates, backed it with foil, or cloth and filled them with bubble wrap. I added some scrap wood pillars between the shops and am calling it ready to mount #modeling #miniature #terrain #postapocalyptic #trashbash

One last touch, broken windows from blisterpack plastic!


Mechanic station pt2

Often as I work on these I think about their story, who uses this place, what it it for, I’ve determined this stand is a machanic’s shop. A stand for repairing and upgrading vehicles. The ‘Catch a ride’ stations in #Borderlands is an inspiration. Attached the shade stand to the cement ground and starting to layer water effects and ink for some oil spots. You can also see some of the added details, posters cut from junk mail, an old cabinet handle as an oil tank #terrain #wargaming #miniature #borderlands
