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!


Colonial marines PDF Imperial guardsmen

I took some plastic #roguetrader era plastic guardsmen and a few kitbashed Aliens character miniatures from Leading edge that I picked up back in about 1995, (from SoL)

Orktimus Prime

Many years ago, maybe 12? I took a #gamesworkshop #ork trukk kit and some ball and socket joints and kitbashed it into a cab over rig. Then carefully copied the design of the gen1 #optimusprime to make my own #OrktimusPrime I was heavily influenced by one I’d seen back on the waaagh forum and looted the idea. I’ve decided to revisit this model since my #robotfactory is giving me modular parts, and this guy always lacked weapons. It might finally be time to finish him up #kitbash #wargaming #transformers #40k

Catch a riiiiiide!

For the Feb #trashbash challenge I took part of an ever useful broken transformer toy,

I combined it with misc hardware cast resin bits, string and staples to make a #wasteland console.

Taking more inspiration from the #borderlands catch-a-ride station.

I’m particularly font of the opening and closing action I kept from the toy.

I’d consider this objective complete and ready for paint now, which means I’ve got a few things lined up to throw pigments at… #terrain #wargaming #sculpture #kitbashing

I realized the cutoff sections I had from my paint trays had a similar shape to Highway dividers, so I pressed some clay in sculpted some cracks and and made a quick one. #terrain #art #wargaming #40k
