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!

Inquisitor Quixote atop his ironstrider. I decided he needed a bit more armor and wanted him to be a bit more imposing on the table so I extended the hind legs of his mount #adeptusmechanicus #inq28 #modeling #kitbash #quixote #40k

Truck progress 

Traveling traders truck. I’ve been slowly adding detail here and there, to make it lived in, some twine to secure the sail as the caravan top, balsa wood framing and side shelves. I made some #terraintutors style garbage bage alone with some resin cast trash cans, barrels and a skull. #modeling #miniature #travelingtrader #kitbash

Here is the full gallery of high res images, enjoy!

Rather than just make a single mini, I decided to finish up a whole squad of #Greyknight terminators, as well as a crashed #derelict ship for terrain and something for them to encounter, the mysterious #Cogitor, the living brain of an ancient being, preserved for millennia aboard the ship.

A bit of bent bailing wire and the #vacuumformed sail from my #shipinabottle kit and this truck is feeling more like a carriage or wagon definitely getting the #travelingtrader vibe off it, #kitbash #modeling #ashwastenomads #inq28 #40k

Truck

Found this toy truck at CVS, pretty excited about the paint job it came with. I’m thinking it’d make a good transport for my #travelingtraders
