Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  A better blog host would have had a nice Solomon Kane figure painted up.  Perhaps a cornucopia of fields and gardens can make up for it? It’s late autumn, just after the crops are in and the table fully dressed.  The crops are just MDF covered in...

The Tower Generica

Even with all of the additions, my table was looking a little bowling-green-esque.  To add just a little bit of topographic interest to things, I elected to mount my local tower keep (courtesy of Kallistra) on a small, defensible mesa. Front and approach. To keep things nice and generic, I...

Tavern on the Green

Alternative Armies has a great line of single piece resin buildings, but they seem more geared for town life than the bucolic village that I’ve been assembling.  Of course, any village worth its salt will have a decent tavern for the local yokels and the passing murder-hobos looking for a...

Building Bridges, Not Walls

Another productive week on the production front with two and a half terrain items completed.  The first one is a bit of a ‘gimme’.  This simple resin bridge is a Kallistra piece that needs no prep and no basing, just prime and a quick dry brush. The village church took a...

Completed Housing Development

My big box of fantasy grows ever larger.  Because of the recent additions, I found it expedient to streamline all of my terrain boxes.  The collection now includes one box of general ground terrain (drop cloth, woods, roads, streams, etc.), one box of sci-fi specific terrain (billboards, buildings, urban...

Housing Development

I don’t know about this. In an effort to save some money, I bought resin houses for my fantasy villages that came in six flat pieces.  The guilty manufacturer shall not be named – they are likely a hobby outfit doing this in their spare time, so you’ll have...

Timber!

Sometimes these quick little posts represent a lot of work.  This isn’t one of those times.  My forests took a total of around four hours start to finish.  I’m a fan of the Toob Trees for my wargaming needs.  They are a little undersized, but at a buck each for...

Terrain Base Quick Hit

You may have noticed that my wizard’s tower included a wooden base.  That one was 3-mm thick wood, but after a recent pet shelf building exercise, I found myself left with a few extra pieces of MDF and Oh Em Gee is this stuff a lot easier to work...

The Tower of Skratch-Bi’ilt

Full confession:  I’ve spent a lot more money than usual on wargame terrain lately.  My side gig paid off, and I’ve dumped a lot of the extra dough into terrain that I don’t have time to build.  Plus, it was my birthday.  You’re going to start seeing a lot...

City of the Dead

Graveyards can be tricky terrain pieces to build.  They have a lot of fiddly bits that become very delicate and damage prone.  For my fantasy terrain box, that’s one hassle I’d like to avoid, so I just bought a resin graveyard from Monday Knight Productions.  This piece measures four...
