Catching up on my required blog reading, That apartment building is excellent and the thought of the insert to let models climb the stairs is absolute genius and probably a great indicator of your attention to detail.

The Spider Bot is really cool, just need an army of little ones to go along with the big one.

The little Roman town is looking great Cam. And wow, I've never done anything in 15mm so seeing some of your tools and stuff in the background shows how tiny you are working

Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks guys.

Yeah these are pretty small stuff, 10mm ancient rome is what I am aiming for.

Bit more to show tonight...
Scale shot with guardsman in.


Large storage shed.






And a housing block..(Insula) apartment block if you like.






Also started on a small farmstead...







And started in on some serious city walls type of things...


Thank you all for looking in, a big thanks to Sigur and Maniac_nmt, great help with the info.

Yep. Mosaics are super-cool. And archeologists are finding new ones all the time, in various parts of former Imperial Territories.

That looks beautiful Cam, very scenic. Also, 10mm make a lot more sense for how small these look, I mis-remembered thinking they were 15mm.

Beautiful looking piece, almost looks more like a diorama than a playing piece. Very realistic especially from arms length.

Nice work all round. Great job at this scale. It puts the larger scales into perspective, doesn't it?!

Can't really think of any general advice to give for this scale, I'm still muddling along and making it up as I go.
You seem to be doing well as you are though.

The spider tank turned out great, bigger than I thought too.

Some lovely work on the 10mm Roman stuff

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the spider tank.

I spotted the inspiration immediately from the initial shape. Probably not a surprise from my obvious liking for GitS.

I've wanted to make an "official" model of that tank for a long time.

Great job.

Thanks folks again, really appreciate the support.

So something different again. A while ago somehow I won a competition and got a great prize from InMyGravenImage......









The Falcone crime family, got to say they are beautiful models, really nice. My little scene was something knocked up today, but I am not 100% as scale seems just a bit off.

Thanks for looking. All C&C welcome.

Oh and I guess, Merry Christmas folks, hope you are surrounded by love and are happy tomorrow.

Nice little farmstead. Do you have any 10mm pigs for the little pen?

The Batman minis are 35mm, so scale ought to be ~1/46 to ~1/50 depending on how the minis are measured, to the top of the head or the eyes.

It is a cool looking diorama. The guy with the mike is certainly saying, "Let's get ready to RUMBLE!"

My wife is super impressed by the Mosaic (Impluvium). She is an Archaeologist and enjoys when people model things with accuracy.

The crime family is great. The bases work amazingly well. In regard to scale maybe the bricks are a little too large. But that is a minor, minor thing on a truly awesome diorama.

Falcone's boys looking good, and well, that wall has no windows to help with scaling that much, so it gets to pass.

Thank you all so much for all the comments.

@ Graven Thanks bud.
@ Red Just got the pigs in the post today so they will be going in.
@ Theo Thanks bud.
@ Vik, Ah heartburn, boy do we love Gaviscon.
@ Ruglud, Santa was great to th family in general but this mek only had a small delivery, mus have been very naughty!!
@Syro, Thanks bud, I will try and wow anyways.
@ Maniac, Thanks bud.
@ Joe, well that will teach you to stop by more often then.
@ Archer, That is really cool then, very happy. And Thanks bud.
@ Shas, Thanks matey, good to see you.


OK first up a bit of cheating....small scale but not really.

Wanted to do a "Roman Baths" and it turns out they are quite into this kinda thing. So....


Which led to this....still WIP so be gentle...




Still very WIP....

And next because I fancied it and several others ( looking hard at you Klaus (not Santa) are mucking about with tanks and things I got a bit of the bug, so decided to start mucking about.

Had these on my desk for ages, they are hulls mad by OneManNoodle, and are brilliant, but incomplete, and I am meant to do something with them, so I have some Genestealer Cult kicking about, whaat about for them, yeah that will work because they don't use the old standard stuff, they use strange and wonderful stuff so lets make them a couple transports.....

Started like this, the more observant will notice that only one hull is partialy detailed...


So half a day later and a lot of cursing because OMN is so much better at modelling than me, I think I have it close enough to two near enough the same....


Can't believe I messed up the grab handles, but not messing about with them now, had to scratch them together as it is. Next is lots more details.

Thanks for looking and feel free to comment please.

i´ve shown my wife your dolphin mosaic...the turtle now she will love too...it´s really awesome how you took a foothold in this small scale and you are shining already ! you are literally someone to teach architecture...i think you got the look done to a T...


also...nice to see some rivet making and proper chunky scratch building here again^^

Post by: Syro_


Your mosaics are beautiful Cam. What scale did you build the Roman baths in? Being that you said 'small scale but not really'. I'm looking forward to seeing how your transports turn out, it's impressive that you were able to match OMN's so closely (even if you say you didn't)


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2018/12/31 00:52:38


Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks folks.

@Vik, Thank you young man, kind words.
@ Theo, Move in any time bud, or I can come over and knock you up a 1:1 scale version.
@Syro 10mm, but this feels like cheating because the model is 150mm square.

Tanky stuff.....

Washing machine hose...approx. 20mm diameter ribbed plastic waste pipe.

And some Epoxy Putty, the fast kind because I got no patience.

Done on a placky bag.

Drill some holes.


Added sometracks and a few little details...




Getting there.

Thanks for looking in and C&C welcome as always.

Bath house is amaze-balls. I so want to try the mosaic idea in 1/50 scale now.

That is a clever use for the hose. Very clever. Those tracks are very Tiger Panzer-esque...

Happy New Year to you and yours.

The tracks are looking nice. I find your creative use of materials quite an inspiration.

I am informed the names of the three pools in your bath house are called the Tepidarium, Calidarium and the frigidarium, apparently progressing through the thermal baths was a bit of a thing like the Japanese like to do in their bath houses.

Well been a bit slow here, did get a little paint down on this thing...


And just for you Red....



OK bit of an annoucement, I am definately going down the comission route, and will be also making some terrain to sell. I will shortly have a bunch of my older stuff up for grabs on Ebay. I will let you know when this happens but it will soon, and please let folk know about it. 2019 is the year I get my finger out.

In the mean time, thanks for looking and as always C&C is most welcome.

But Cam! I was expecting some Gloucester Old Spot pigs, or maybe even Oxford Sandy and Black pigs.

For a wee island, Great Britain sure has many varieties of pigs.

Pigs make a nice detail. I thoroughly approve.

Are those mud flaps on the back of the tank? The tow cable is nicely executed. Picture hanging wire?

You should do well with the commissions. You have an excellent and extensive portfolio. And plenty of satisfied recipients of your work already. ( including me.) Please don't quit your day job just yet. I understand that the UK is going through some unsettled times right now.

Thanks folks.

@ Red typical, you are never happy, always pushing me harder. Thanks bud.

Well I thought I might have a bit of a laugh here, some great modellers do a year in review post. I normally don't but to be honest I would like to, because I think it will help me. IRL has been a hell of a year. My modelling has kept me alive , quite literally at times. You guys out there being with me has really made a difference in a gak world. So I think a look at what we have done in the last year will be a laugh if nothing else.

Now I am going to keep this brief, a pic of each project, because I think this may end up being a long post.....

Started the year on terrain...

Refinery tank.


Heavy weapon team.


Hive Hab.


Tank Factory.


At last an Ork.


Corrupted refinery section.


Miniature hauler.


Statue.


Further Chaotic refinery.


Table centre piece.

With decorative top.


Nasty Leman Russ.


Some Deathguard.


Tank hauler unit with part built Leman Russ hulls.


A Mechanicus shrine.


A rotten Vindi.


A blood bath Rhino.


An award winning grot. ( 1st prize in Nerdy painting comp.)


A boat.


A torture house, ( cheating cus not strictly finished )


Gubbins for the torture house.



Some likely lads.


Orky action.


A small ruin.


A bigger ruin.


A guy running.


A night club scene.


A french man.


Some guys with pointy heads.


I R Da Nite. (Award winner for InMyGravenImage contest.)


A buggy.


A sniper kill team.


A house.


A crashed and rehabed space ship


A GUO.


Tau robot dude.


First full (small) sculpted figure.


An Infinity team


A fountain.


A grot repair robot.


A bungalow.


A bit of road.


A tower block. (cheating again, got to tag this up a bit.)


A spider tank.


10mm scale roman buildings.





A BMG team.


Snikrot


And a GSC tank.


I have also been working on and will be for some time I think, a small side project...






Thank you all, really geniunely from my heart, thank you, for looking in and for commenting now and then, it is an honour and a privilege to have you wonderful people out there giving your time to a silly sod stuck on a silly island.

As I have said, I am going to try my hand at this commissioning lark, any scale any thing you can think of I will have a go at building.

Thanks once again.

Thank you all so much, really appreciate the comments and the views.

Sorry been a bit quiet. Still in the dark place here, but got to get going. Friend has asked me to make him a model, intention might be to make a few, but will see how this goes. Not quite wargaming but might make a few 40k style for some of the great guys here abouts who would appreciate them. OK so here we go.

This is a reference pic of the actual thing....

And here is a brilliant model made in tin by a previous gent...


And here is a couple hours work on getting started...




Had to make an engine so made a mold for future offerings..

That is a hell of a year in the hobby - work to be proud of! I had missed snikrot and the ork storage bins - those are great. The tank factory is really impressive finished. My brief commission tenure ended on a low note - my advice is to be sure to charge what your amazing stuff is worth strait up. My notion that I was going to produce good stuff for a great price ended badly, because really many people in the commission terrain market aren't looking for "good", even if the price is very reasonable. And don't take calls after 9 Pm, your time! Good luck with it.

Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks folks, great to hear from you all.

@ Arakasi, Engine will be visible in this case as I will be making the hood a working part. And see below for wheels...

First I make a rough ring in plasticine (actually bought some fancy "no sulphur" stuff here

And as you can see added a hub and spokes in styrene tube...


This is the master after I did mold. yes the master ended up destroyed.

And a nice silicone mold so I can make plenty of wheels.


And the result...

Couple of the lights cast as well.

And a quick look to see how I am for size..


Not bad, by the time I add the rubber for the tyres will be spot on.

As a quick side note, here is Dads advise and hobby supplies being put to good use for my daughters college project....


Thanks for looking and hope that helps with the wheel thing, and of course if any one wants some wheels just ask, can make them pretty much any size.

Appears to be missing some spokes? Looking forward to seeing what you do for the rubber tyres.

Thanks folks.

@Gits, comes with age they say.
@ Vik, Sulpher free cus some silicone and resins react with sulphur based products, (such as standard Plasticine) And she is doing Art and Design and is currently in final year of college and going hopefully to University next year. All looking good at the moment, that particular piece is very much WIP, it will be hung up but will be a rock pool scene, so looking at lots of resin and added effects for the finished piece. This is obviously all her own work, I am resisting the urge to help well, but she is very happy I am a modeller and have an extensive supply of materials.
@ Theo, could have a go at knocking up some 28mm scale wagon wheels for you if you want, easy enough now i have the process down. Whats a trek trunk?
@ Arakasi, Sorry bud, by making a negative in the Plasticine, I then poured 2 part resin in, it gives you a rough cast, but is easy enough to clean up then added the styrene details, and then made the mold to pour silicone in, again to make that mold I used the Plasticine. Once I had a silicone mold, I then cast the whole unit in 2 part resin, giving me the end product. Which has a nice cast iron feel to it, is very strong and solid, except against twisting force. Another words if it rolls it is fine, I can drop it from desk height fine, but if I get hold of it and twist it, it breaks. More molding below so see if that helps. Oh and the number of spokes, the actual vehicle has six spokes but the model made previously had a lot more, not sure why.

So bit more progress on details.

Engine in and initial paint job done...


And here is a reference shot for comparison.


And worked on the rear pump area a bit...
Original styrene "masters".

Then after I made a mold this is the first resin cast...broke a little bit getting it out of the mold, but not an issue..


And then stuck in place and repaired..


And again here is a reference shot for the back end.



Thanks for looking in folks, please ask away.

Indeed, your daughter is greatly benefiting from your views, rescources and understanding... That is often not happening fir young artists with their parents... I am hoping for my son Felix to develop himself one future day in a similar way... Then all my medling with glue and stuff would have a higher justification...

Also...question time.... Did your friend allow you some beans as to why he needs maybe more than just one firefighter car? Whars he up to???

Thank you all so much, and thanks for your patience. I am all over the place at the moment, but will get settled in a bit.

et all ..seriously thank you for the comments, really means a lot.

@ Vik, might sell some for charity type thing, though I am trying to be a bit cautious on that one, not sure haw many I want to make, even if I do get the fiddly bits cast-able. Also really not sure about someone buying it as a toy. Not intended for that purpose obviously, but people!!

OK trying to get the juices flowing and getting my son a bit distracted from ranting at online xboxing, had a go at another of his Tau, while he works on other Tau...

Again he got this ages ago, and stuck it all together before painting it, so it is a pitta to paint now, still a bit WIP, not happy with the finish at the moment, it is like I can't decide between clean and dirty, just looks a mess, even the pics are crap. But here you go...




And another distraction...so I can't remember if I mentioned I got my mits on a ultrasonic cleaner, well thought I would have a play...
Just 10 minutes of treatment...



And a little later..


And a little later still...


While I was waiting between times did a bit of work on one of them, still WIP....





Thank you so much for looking in , and please feel free to comment.

Is your son playing fortnite per chance? My son does...and its like he switches to a whole different persona while playing....so aggressive and loud...otherwise he way calmer and in general a nice person...but there... I wish i could drag him away from this scene..

These cars are matchbox sized, right? Awesome results, in cleaning them and redoing them too!

Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks folks.

@ Theo, Yup cleaner works a treat.
@ Syro, Daughter is still working on it.
@ Vik, yup matchbox cars. And no idea what he plays, varies a lot, but often ends with yelling.....him at the screen and then me at him.
@Gits, oh yeah, must be up about 10 hours of work all ready, stripping all sorts, cleaning stuff up, does make a slightly annoying buzzing noise though.
@ Youwashock, Resist bud, try!! And yeah, he chose the scheme, think it is close to the one GW have on the boxes, but I am not sticking to anything set in stone.
@ Ezki, Thanks bud, well look below, but still WIP bud.
@ Graven, Oh yeah bud, but I would not worry too much, unless someone shouts me these will be coming your way anyways.

So bit more done....WIP still



Love this golden oldie...well Chrysler I think...


So making a mold, to make some terrain pieces for the Gaslands thing, I guess terrain is not a big element, but a few lumps about the map will surely make it more interesting.


And after a lick of paint...


And the original was minus an interior so made one...


And while I was messing about, I had this old wooden box someone gave me ages ago, it had a bunch of metal casting molds, and metal and a few bits...






If anyone has use for the little tanks shout me.

And had to have a go with resin in the metal rubber molds...


Going to play a bit more, but not really getting much time at any of this at the moment.

Well thank you folks, really appreciate everything.

I only know it’s Fortnite for my son because he keeps asking to buy (fake money in that game), and me walking by on my way to my paint desk and seeing his guy running around in a bush .

That’s a great car to use for molding , terrain does play a great deal in the game, though it’s seen kind of like the asteroids in X-Wing, visible but unless your a terrain person it can just be chits.

Thanks all, sorry for hiatus, been away on family stuff.

So here is actually some stuff I did earlier, but this is where I am starting from. Got to try and get the juices flowing, been around your blogs and so much great work and inspiration.

Here we are then, sorry it is a bit boring as it is just stuff I have kinda posted already.

Gaslands terrain

and cars..




And this is were the 10mm roman terrain is, any suggestions welcome on this.


Thanks for looking and all comments welcome.

The Roman terrain is very...well white. I think there were be a little natural weathering or plant growth to add some green. Just a suggestion.

How hard is making the cast for the cars? I would like to try it with some city/castle walls for Warmaster. Make a section about 65mm long, and about 30mm deep.

Can you re-use the mold? I'd need to cast multiple instances of the wall to make it usable for play.

I have a reasonable idea for how to orient the wall, but a gate section might be more complicated than it's worth (to start with anyways).

Yeay gods been a while.

First sorry for delay.

@ Vik yup most of it was GSW (greenstuff world) rolling pin, cannot recommend them enough.
@ Maniac_nmt, Highly recommend molding and casting it is great fun, and not too expensive if you are wise. I mostly do single part molds, though I have had a fair bit of success with two part molds. I could look at making you a couple molds if you like.

OK I quite literally have done nothing for weeks. Just managed to sit down today at 2pm.

So for this blog, here is me starting in on my entry for the latest LoER comp. been running for some time and ends at the end of this month, but that aint no biggy for me, if I stick to my guns.

Once more unto the breach...


And the biginnings of a frame.


Oh and picked this up in Home Bargains in the UK. 69p Nice little sculpting tool I recon.


Thank you for looking back soon I hope.

Not really that big, and yet again, sorry Red, it will be a bit broken.

@ Red, thank you, I am going to go back over most of that terrain. Now I have the juices flowing. Might add a few river sections, though I don't really know how big I need a river to be for this scale.

OK Bit more done on the current distraction.

Theme is "name of the game" and we are meant to use playing pieces, so to start with a slight cop out using playing cards.


Also scored some nasty cheap dominoes, going to see what I come up with them.


And after a couple hours messing about.


Thank you for looking.

Well thank you all for the wonderful comments.

Sorry Josh they are staying. On the inside at least.

And @ Vik, well you know me by now, have to have it done proper.

So started on the "roof"..



And added some of those dominoes for detail to the front.


And started on a staircase I am not sure I will use...


Then I slapped some paint around...





So I guess it is starting to take shape.



Thank you for looking.

Paint works great with the cards. Roof looking great, and you need to use the steps.

Looks ace. Given that you've made the staircase, maybe destroy it and have it collapsed through the building?

Wow! Do you have a tutorial for your marble anywhere?

Post by: Viktor von Domm


And @ Vik, well you know me by now, have to have it done proper.
i´m totally with you here! it´s because of this tho that building ruins is very hard for me, as i tend to always make only intact buildings because of this...

also...the roof is developing nicely, and i can´t say anything about the marble exterior...that is

especially what you did to the flooring is amazing tho...that nice stain is mouthwatering...looks like honey to be honest big

these kebabsticks you used i have too...was planning on trying to make butresses one day with them, but i like your idea and use way better!!!

the stairs are good looking, but i am unsure about the angle these would create... will it reach the next level? the way you pictured it i can´t tell...

The stairs are intriguing. craft sticks for the treads and strings, and balsa wood to make the risers?

Each of the individuals elements are beautiful in their own right, but the effect of the whole it really awe inspiring. Definitely find a use for the stairs.

Thank you all.

@Theo, Thanks mate, and since you asked see below.
@Syro, Thanks bud.
@Graven Ta, and nice idea, might yet go that way, but not quite yet...
@Fifty, I did have a tutorial , but to be honest I actually did it different this time so going to have to revamp it.
Here are the previous...
Spoiler:




@ Vik, Thanks bud.
@Red, Thanks sir, the risers are some of the off cuts from the bamboo skewers.
@Gits, Thanks bud.
@ DrH, Thank you sir.

OK well not a lot done, been a bit meh....but here you go some progress...

So started on some furnishings...





And then took a look at the stairs. (here you go red...)






And obviously the stairs need to go somewhere..




And there you are I am back in the saddle so to speak.

Thank you all so much for looking in and all your comments are really appreciated.

Excellent use of the skewers. I've wondered about using them for oars on a ship, but it would take to much sanding to round the long bit out.

As stairs they work wonderfully.

Post by: Briancj


Wouldn't have to round them off. Usually, they sank iron or bronze bars into the wood as handles. A bit of wire, and boom, done!

Also,

NOTE HOW MANY LITTLE POINTY STICKS HE HAS LEFT FROM THE SKEWERS.

Just sayin'.

Only a little progress.

Couple tables..



Then stuck card to the top and sanded it roughly to try and make a baize effect.




And so after a touch of stain on the stairs and upper floor...

Toys. Just toys in the attic.

Sooner or later, for a roof, I imagine that you will find a way to split a piece of slate into little tiny roof tiles and use them to make a genuine slate roof.

Then there are all the cool ways to make the roof trusses. That's similar to a King post you've got there, one variant anyway.

Such a nice piece. So much for the eye to enjoy. Please do continue.

Thank you all so much really appreciate every word.

OK been a real slog for me, just not doing well at the mo, but here is the (slightly) finished entry. Yes I am going to add a few more details, but the deadline is now so this is the entry.






And so I built a bit more for the roof section.















So yes it comes in two, and you can have the front end looking like a full building, and if you wish you can remove the stairs and upper floor. And if you want you can remove the roof and the upper walls slide away to reveal a ruin, as in the first pic.

Think I will be adding some details to the loft and a sign out front, but we will see. Thank you for looking and as always please feel free to critique.

¡Ánimo! Cam. An amazing build. For some games, I think a fair number of open sided buildings not in ruins, such as this, and in this size range, could make for a very nice table.

Perfect fit for the theme too. Well done.

The skulls for table legs still kill me, BTW. In a good way, of course.

@ Brian, currently in the process of changing things up.
@ Vik, indeed necessity being the mother of invention, because I have "stuff" it puts a slant on the world that makes me want to improve it.
@ Theo, I wish you lots of luck with the lottery, I'd be up for a trip. Especially the manly man hug bit.

So settled down to a little "new" project. Been here before, but here is something different.



This is rough at the moment but will be cleaned up tomorrow once all set up.

Wow, the fire truck is looking amazing Cam. You put so much time and detail into the vehicles you make. I think someone said before that you put so mcuh detail into your vehicles that them look like they're going to drive away, and I have to agree.

I do enjoy seeing these sorts of projects, Cam.

Do continue.

Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments.

I might think about basing it, but not sure.

I had a Birthday and got very lucky..


And also got a trip to the hardware store in and picked these..


From which I will be making some barrels, and probably cast them up.

Thanks for looking in.

Good to see this one finished - i like the comparison shot; the number plates are conspicuously absent on the other model
It's another welcome break from the 'science-fantasy' theme we all crave/live/sustain

Although that orky land-skiff-thing is still fething epic whatever the weather.

Thank you all so much, really appreciate it.

So something different....
Got this lot over the last few months.



So I ripped them to bits and removed the paint.



Thats soapy water..

And a bit of heat and dremel action, and....



And then a lick of new paint...



And then they are now in a box which will be on it's way to some unfortunate soul soon. I don't really have the parts for modding them and I know the new owner will enjoy tinkering with them, just fancied having a go.

Thanks for looking in.

Those... look like crap In the best possible way The truck back right is a favour HW of mine, but that front and centre piece of junk is pretty amazing too. Weird question - did you stick them back together, or are the wheelbases still loose? Just thinking about interior/wheel options...


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2019/06/11 08:37:56

Still loose. So can be worked on if wanted.

Cam, you did a really great job on those weathered cars. Feels like out of a Fallout video game. Do you think something should be done with the hubcaps on the wheels?

Thanks folks.

So bit of a funny day, but sat down couple hours ago and decided to play with something I have wanted to play with for some time. (this is your fault Heretic Tom, you did a Chaos Ogryn, got me thinking.)

Bought this for couple pound in Home Bargains.


And some size comparison.




And after the surgery..





Please feel free to comment, would like to know what you think.

Thank you for looking.

spooky how you converted the airfex dude to an ogryn... even tho i read the opening i really had to look closley to see what you really did...good mixture of orky bitz . what did you use for the head tho?...almost looks like a shoulder ???


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2019/06/11 20:48:40

Fire engine is most excellent. Color me very, very impressed.

1:32 figures are ~54mm scale? Quick back of the envelope calculations say yes. A nice scale for painting.

The cars turned out well. Unsurprisingly.

They look rad, I noticed that chaos Ogryn always seem to have their faces covered in the lore so these seriously look spot on. The poses really reflect that "too dumb to be scared" attitude Ogryn are known for too, they look anxious to get into the thick of it.

Thank you folks, really appreciate it.

So been struggling to fit stuff in. Finally got some bits started for selling on Etsy More to follow later on. I will be back here with a couple projects in the pipe line. And also I have a commission on, they like the fire engine so more to do for those guys.

back soon promise.

Good job, Cam'. I'll tweet your shop link out which may give you a few more views (although I tweet something from my shop everyday and haven't sold anything for a while).

I'd probably add more detail to your listings.
I usually put something "in universe" about it, maybe something about it's construction, what it can be used for and all the features it has, then dimensions; the photos are good to have, but numbers are more detail. I just give maximum values for length, width, height and weight. I also have postage and packaging information on the end of each listing.

You can have a look at my listings to see what I mean.
Maybe my descriptions are too long for anyone to bother reading, I dunno, but they can't say I didn't inform them.

Good luck.

I see you've favourited my shop, I haven't seen the notification for that. Thanks. I'll return the favour next time I log in.

Thanks Cam.

Just a suggestion or two for the etsy shop - I've had much better luck there and on ebay when I use a backdrop. I started with a sheet then ended up doing some gradient backgrounds in different tones. Really makes the thumbnail pop.

I second adding more detail. Hype the "custom pieces for good prices" and any nice details like solid MDF base that wont warp or sealed with a matte varnish or whatever applies to you.

Good luck!

@ TW, all duelly noted and will address shortly. Thank you for the input sir, really helpful. All advise gratefully received.
@ CB, no bud, it is my resin "sprue" parts, stuck to a bit of board and a quick and dirty texture with sand and a quick and dirty paint job.

Now I must apologise for the lack of updates, been a tad busy IRL, and also the Fire Engine went down quite well........"Mass" production begins.




Fun and games, going to have to pull my finger out. Need 10 of these by month end.

Thank you for looking in, and all your comments are most gratefully received. I will be getting back to some normality soon I hope.

Congratulations on the commission.

Be careful with not taking on too much (or too short of a deadline), as that can lead to burn-out and disappointments for all. But we all know this from the LoER terrain contests.

Keep up the good work.
