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

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.


Truck progress 

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
