UK, middlesbrough

been a busy week here,

We have a new paint rack in a landscape format for Vallejo paint / war paints





The storage boxes launched last week now all include magnetic sheet at the bottom that sits under the insert




The Eldar themed watch towers have been re-designed, they are the same size, feature more details and you now get an extra one in the packs





Two large new launches this week were city fight tables



They have a 4ft by 3ft (120cmx90cm) base board in that comes in 12 sections
3 roads each consist of four sections and covers the length of the board, two can be placed on raised supports or can be used on the ground, the supports can then be used as extra terrain pieces

6 large buildings and loads of scatter terrain such as spirit towers, walls and barricades for cover and to block line of sight

The cities can be arranged around the roads with large spaces for several vehicles to move around in alternatively the roads can play a very minimum to no role in the city with the buildings being very close together limiting the space for vehicles and adding a more tactical aspect to them






Again comes with a 4ft by 3ft (120cmx90cm) base board, that comes in 12 sections

24 road sections. 16 straight 4 corner 2 t junction and 2 cross roads
8 sections in a straight line will cover 4 foot and 6 will cover 3 foot

5x three storey buildings
5x two storey buildings
5x one storey buildings
2x small bunkers
2x large one storey gothic style buildings
Numerous shutter grates and planks to cover windows to reduce line of sight
Instructions

The buildings are built in a standard pattern that can be placed together to create larger buildings, they can be stacked to increase the height of the game. The buildings can be glued together in these extended patterns or left free so the setup of the buildings can be different for every game. (see photos for example)

The cities can be arranged around the roads with large spaces for several vehicles to move around in alternatively the roads can play a very minimum to no role in the city with the buildings being very close together limiting the space for vehicles and adding a more tactical aspect to them

With the stutters/grates in place buildings can provide a place for troops to completely hide in waiting to ambush, protecting a key character or they can move higher up in the buildings granting great but exposed firing places.

Hi Tom, sorry this is a bit delayed, but a big thank you for sponsoring your awesome kits to me for my tournament. Sorry I didn't get as many photos as I'd have liked, got a bit swamped.

Glad to see business is going well for you, and anyone thinking about getting these kits, I would recommend them!

These are looking really nice. Any plans for some... one-use orbit-to-surface insertion vehicles? A kind of a pod, that armoured science fiction warriors of the far future might use to drop in to combat?

Arrived safely and very well packed yesterday. I was away with work so I'll be taking it home this evening.

I'll probably be using Evo-stik wood glue as opposed to PVA glue to stick it together as I much of the former and not so much of the latter.

OK, so I've assembled the 1st set of drawers, the 1st paint rack, the corner rack and the corner rack box riser thingy.

Quality is very good, the parts slot together very well well a very small amount of "slop" in the fitting. As you can see from the pics when assembled the racks and drawers are quite substantial. I'll get the other bits assembled tomorrow if I can find time.

The instructions could be clearer, exploded diagrams would help but I seemed to have managed it OK with what I got.

Hi - I recently bought 2 of these.
The instructions read that there are 10 shelf support beams but both kits only have 9....
I don't think that this will make a difference to their stability - paint pots aren't that heavy!
Just wanted to give you a heads up. Have a great Christmas.

I will try to come up with a design for the comp. Keep up the good work!

BTW - are we designing to 2mm thick MDF - the rules don't state.
Cheers.

Oops - sorry about that.
Don't worry about the extra beams - the glue will hold it in place.

hello all

A few new buildings to show off. let’s start with the winner of my competition

A design for a industrial tower using pringle tubes.






A large double barracks with a small platform in the centre.
This one was a request from a while ago.

It’s a fairly large building at 320mm x 290mm

It is packed with detailed tiles all over the roof and has optional doors / windows.






A large factory/warehouse designed to fill maximum floor space.

Features a removable roof with access to the inside, two large doors allow for medium/small tanks and vehicles to enter the buildings.

The roof has space for a large platform and a chimney stack, which can be placed anywhere

Inside there is a large open room with space for several vehicles or even and objective with several entrance to assault from. There is a balcony which will give line of sight over the battle but sacrifices cover

Measure 295mm x 295mm x 200mm (not including chimneys)

This is a simple kit that will be easy and quick to assemble and has massive scope for customising the interior and exterior








This is the first version of the upcoming Refuse Furnace.

It needs a bit on work on it, to add some more details and make best use of the wood to reduce waste

The building is packed with details and interesting parts.

There are two refuse inputs which are fitted with crushing rollers and hinged doors that can be opened / closed at will

The roof features a ventilation system and the side of the building there is a fan assisted fume stack

The building is on a 200mm x 200mm base
