Rubbish...utter rubbish!


Today I'll be putting up a few pictures of some of my modern scatter terrain. Most pieces are from the TTCombat resin scenery line. These are little gems even if they do suffer from some flash. The flames in the oil drum are rubbish, I know, but well I have to get me a decent tutorial on doing those than I guess.

This model was a toy-car my eldest son got but which broke down the second day he was playing with it. I painted it using the excellent tutorial done by Gunbird at his blog. Now I know there's quite a lot wrong with this one such as the lay-out of the debris and the area's of rust pattern I applied, but it is my first attempt at anything like this and I like it!

Ascloha revisited...


Well Hugo is settling in fine and since he's rather quick falling asleep in the evening I get a little downtime then. So here's the promised post about the MDF buildings I am currently working on. I basically have two projects: one is a Dark Age project, which will feature in today's post, the other is a Victorian/ Modern Day project.

Since I started doing the Dark Age 28mm project I have been steadily beavering away on some buildings made by Timeline Miniatures. These are very good value for money and sturdy builds at that. At the moment I have 6 buildings from their DA line: 2 Viking houses (one of which you have already seen), 2 Saxon or regular DA houses, a (Saxon) longhouse/ drinking hall and an Anglo-Romanic church/ minster. This will suffice me for some terrain and more specifically the small hamlet of Ascloha, modern day Asselt in the region where I live, where a rather cool Norsemen drama evolved. This will form the basis for my Dux Brit. campaign.

Now for some pictures!
The last finished dwelling:

While the longhouse and Minster are only based and not yet finished I thought I might show you the progress anyway.

The Longhouse:

The Minster:

When these are done I still need to do some scatter terrain to spruce the board up but this will be fine since I already have some Renedra wattle fences and more DA animals lying here.

Next up will be some stuff for the Modern terrain project.
