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.

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.

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.

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)

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.
