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!


Y2k Peregrine lights

Let there be lights! I was scared to try lighting it but it was much easier that I expected.

Just three hours and bits I happened to have. Now it’s got three white #led in the floor, two red for the engines, three yellow for the crew compartment and cockpit and a green for the coffee maker.

Not the cleanest wiring job but seeing the wires through the floor adds to the nature of the #spaceship #model #kitbash #lights #40k #y2kperegrine #starwars

Cardboard control panels

Starting the details for the cockpit controls, more tiny individual laser cut cardboard parts. It’s pretty amazing how it all fits together like a puzzle. Some of the parts I have no idea about until I line it up and dry fit, and suddenly it clicks into place and I see it as a switch, or button. #y2kperegrine #model #spaceship #inq28 #cockpit

Scrapbots

  1. Three of my #kitbash #model killakanz I used one of the metal #40k kanz which were so boxy I always thought they looked appliance like so I went with it and added plasticard with a few rackham parts, a couple barrels and miscellaneous vehicles parts. I haven’t done much with their paint yet, just had them out when I was cleaning my #airbrush
