City of death city block

The table is really coming together.  To be honest, I'd had built a considerable amount over the last 2 years, but never got around to the actual table or actually painting them.  As you can see I still have a long way to go, but I'll get there eventually.

The ruined church is always a necessity to all cities of death tables.

The Hab block.  Has all the features of a run down and partially destroyed concrete monolith.  The intent is to add small amounts of colour to the rubble and then shade the whole structure using washes.  Then coloured powder pigment to add the grime and then seal the whole thing in 2 layers of laquer to avoid damage during day to day play.

This is the backside showing most of the damage.  I took inspiration from Second World War photos of London and Berlin.  For the more modern look of destroyed concrete apartments, photos of the gaze strip provided inspiration for the hollowed out and boxy shape.

Happy hobbying.

Hasslefree package arrived

Hey folks,

My package from hasslefree arrived.  Great company and lovely people.  Here is the unboxing.

Such a small box full of treasures.

Some great little models.

Full of filing cabinets, desks and crates.

I have a project in mind that required some great furniture that frankly I wasn't willing to scratch build.

Although I will have to scratch build this...

It's going to be awesome.

See if you can guess...

Happy hobbying.

Snowy snow snow snow

So it's terrible weather outside and as a result I've been motivated to finally add the snow to the cities of death table.

And more snow.

And finally these beauties made from forgeworld resin vents.  They make perfect road barrier of different sizes.

I'm working on the next two tiles, which will be something new and different, so be prepared from something wicked.

happy hobbying.



I know, two posts in one day.  Craziness.

Here is a tease of what I've done.

And this is a place you can find them.

This is the work in progress.

More cities of death

Hey folks,

Continued to work on the cities of death table.  This is an added feature that I have been holding onto for a while but hadbt gotten around to completing.

This one started out as a crane toy from winners, I had to shorten it and took a bunch of parts off that I'll be able to incorporate into future projects. For those of you interested this is the crane I used.

 Actually some of them are currently built into a surprise project I'll be posting later.

Here is the mechanicum symbol I sponge blotted onto the red stand.  It adds a little flare and change to the standard gray of concrete.

I'll post more as the project progresses.

Happy hobbying.
