Not where I should be

Just had 2 games of Deadzone, first time I have played anything in about 5 years at least.

Fantastic fun, played my daughter, she wanted to be Plague. She ran away with the first game as I totally did not get my head straight, I got her (just) the second game.

We got a few bits wrong but it played out well. This is such a graphic game, it puts wonderful images in your head. For instance in the first game she had to infiltrate. So she basically out flanked me and ran off the table but left the big guy all alone strolling up the centre of the board, with shots raining off him, rips the head of the captain and off the board, just magical.

Forgot how much fun playing can be.

I definitely do more painting than gaming. But when I do I remember how much fun it can be too. Can help a lot when you have opponents seeking the same thing as you too. Glad you enjoyed the game. Any in action shots?

That's one heck of a dry spell, Cam. Good to hear that y'all enjoyed the game. It means that there will be more

Eastern edge

hey Cam, plastic Enforcers are a little taller than the restic ones, but standard plastic cement will do the trick for the all plastic enforcers and peacekeepers, cyano for the restic parts that are options to be added to the plastic bodies, like the shotty and shield.

Thanks guys,

@ Shas thanks bud, will be trying to source some more Enforcer models soon, so advice gratefully received.

Not really an update or anything, just, well as the kids are playing this and I am knocking around the edges thought I would knock out a dice box. (the wifes biggest complaint about the hobby is the noise of dice being rolled.

So....



2 hours work this afternoon.

Thanks for looking. Much appreciated.

Next round of catching up on my sub'd blogs.

Nice work on the tanks. Good job on the swappable parts.

Good job on the giant bird thing. Nice to see you pushing yourself on the sculpting. One critique (as I know you like to hear it) is the legs are "missing" the thighs; the "backwards-knee" that you see in birds and other animals is actually the ankle. The upper leg as you have it, is the shin.
The head is a great piece of work though.

And the swimming pool / dice rolling area is great. Nice idea.

Nice idea with the dicebox. A little less obtrusive than a tower, but will still fit in on a table.

Nice work on the dice box. If it were me I'd put some Grot's around the edge of it, arguing over some dice, or maybe carrying them away.
Or something along those lines, just an idea .

Thanks guys, much appreciated.

So messing with some ideas, not sure if this will be my entry toward the latest LoER comp, don't think so cus not really pushing myself enough.

So Started this yesterday...

Got some stuff together...

Yup that's it, pizza bases and cereal boxes.

Then I made my own Foam core...got a bit carried away and made a box...



Added some details tonight....






And then a little paint....



Figure some of that deadzone modular stuff has to be a bit worn around the edges right?

Got to finish painting the detail and add some graffittttiiiiii....

Thoughts appreciated.

Thanks for looking.

You're really good at doing sceneries. Great job, nice details.
It's something I'm really impressed by, because I would be unable to do anything that good without spending ages on it.

Thank you all, very much appreciated.

Well silly amount of pictures here so getting straight at it....

Nearly there on the little cube....



Started in on a Panel, the idea being it can fit various occasions....
Panel was again my homebrew FC, just a straight forward 3" square...Then I wanted to add a ladder....
So Steps...




then a quick lick of paint...

Folded to the building...

As a wall...

Oh and a little free hand graffittiiiii on the other side..


Then I started a new little cube...

Cardboard tube....


Bit of boxing...

And we are getting there...


Some base coat...

And a little more paint...





And just some fun shots of it all at the moment...






So that's as it is, going to finish adding detail to these, and build some more, just keep adding to it. I think this will be my entry in the comp. (link in sig) Though I feel like I am cheating a little because my bits collection is huge, the platforms are made from reclaimed signs (sintra board) That's not something anyone can get hold of easy. Most of the buildings will be cardboard and pizza bases. Pretty basic stuff.

I think as terrain goes, it's for Deadzone, but will do very nicely if I can get my head around Necromunda again, and is easily usable for 40k etc. Just about any sci-fi game, might just about get away with it for Infinity if I can ever get into it.

So thoughts welcome, thanks for looking, back soon.

I think that's great Cam. All the little details and the way you cook up all the elements and make them work together is just amazing.

Thanks guys.

No update. Been working on orks. Just popping on quick to answer Graven.

Most often i have purchased sheet styrene. I will let you know where i got my last batch once i look it up. Got 5 sheets cheap. Was on ebay.

Recently i purchased a roller from Green stuff world which is brilliant. Have made some great panels with it already. I will knock up a little review tomorrow night and show you. Tonight is a bit of a bust. I am just plain knackered so had the yearly bath and off to bed.

Sorry it took so long, here we go...

Super Sculpey, with roller...


Can be molded into many different shapes...


I find this excellent and produces really great panels that I can make the thickness I want. If I manage to think about it, I could mould in the rivets etc as well.

I think I prefer this to the sheet material which I find to be brilliant but at times fragile and has no thickness to it.

The sheet is probably cheaper, but not by much to be honest, at least with the sculpey version you use 100% of what you need, with the sheet material especially for Orks who can't cut straight if their life depended on it apparently, you end up with little piles of scrap off cuts that are honestly good for nothing.

Hope that helps a little, back soon with more buildings I think, for now bit busy with a Boaring project on my Ork blog...
