More work in the robot factory. Added a little detail to the #trailer and have the chassis and legs for both the #gamesworkshop #knight and #dreamforge #leviathan magnetized and interchangeable. Need to get the heads, arms and armor set up to be modular next. #modeling #miniature #terrain

More work in the robot factory. The #40k #knight kit has fingers made to be glued in a pose, but that wasn’t enough for me, so I drilled them and bent an axel out of wire to allow them to move #modeling #robot #mech #kitbash #wargaming
Castle Greyskull pt1
Challenging myself to make a quick castle from scrap this was about an hour in #castlegreyskull #miniature #terrain
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!
Inquisitor Quixote, Ironstrider pt1
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
