Sci-fi City Block

 Part of my vague Mega-City terrain, a corner piece to represent a cityblock or any building really. Made with a foam base structure, chipboard/cardboard cladding, then thin plasticard on the board to allow panels and greebles… the Maelstrom’s Edge greeble sprue will come in handy. Random unfinished block gang member for scale.

And this will go between them. Bits from a Playmobil airport and foam. It will get the same cladding as above, so hopefully it will all work together. I need more foampvc to do the base before I go any further. 

It’s also much bigger than I anticipated. Could be an issue, but plowing on regardless. If it’s too big to store, watch for eBay… 😂

Sci-fi urban tiles

A change of pace, some modular tiles intended for Judge Dredd primarily, but will be pretty generic. Utilising the Kill-Team friendly tiles from Fire Dragon Games. I have a set of four, but space means I can only really work on one at a time.

The tile texture is scribed into foam-pvc in 20mm squares. The big step was cutting the hole in the foam insert, but it’s worked so far. It theoretically will house inserts for an airlock, an industrial grinder, a sump pool and just blank tiles. The odd grey tile is from the Maelstrom’s Edge terrain sprue, which was happily a 20mm square.

More vampires…

And a couple more vampires, this time from the official North Star range and evocative of the Fearless Vampire Killers. They match well enough with the Oldman Vlad. She is a beast though in metal, so many magnets for storage to keep her in place.


More changelings…

So May and June ran away from me. Did some bits, now and then, but life, heat and depression got in the way. Anyhoo…

 So, I was a changeling short for the base rules and ordered the standing blight from the same Etsy seller who ended up sending me another crouching one as well. All set for changeling needs now.

British and French recruits

First off, the doctor for the French unit, as previewed in the WIP post.

British and French Marines. The Royal Marine was actually a figure I first made for my deserter bandit idea, but that was improved (see earlier post), but I really liked the pose, so lost the deserter head, cleaned up his whites and converted a RM top hat from a spare Perry shako head, due to his deserter background he has a random side bag and his pack is from the Victrix Highlanders I have. It’s been a while but I think the arms are Victrix Highlander as well on a Perry body. The French Marine is from the Perry Elite French sprue, which has the fancier hats, although those plumes like to snap. 

British and French Grenadiers. Pretty much straight from the sprue.


Investigation markers

Made a couple more investigation markers, just as the bits were to hand. The new ones are a couple of wolf heads on stakes (the heads were originally from the Gabriel Hounds bodies), a GW notice board (sans skulls) and a leg from a Perry sprue.
