You have two months. No need to start something right now and have it sitting on a shelf for weeks. Nah, rush it at the last minute!

@JackDarkmoore: Great looking tent, and nice weathering. Question: You mentioned later you were going to cover it in resin. To make it harder/sturdier, I guess? Have you considered using PVA instead? If the cloth cotton based, it should adhere OK, and it might be easier to work with


Ok.. I'm a little ebarased about it but I'll share it with you... I was out of PVA glue and because of the holidays I couldn't buy some until tomorrow.
Tomorrow seems too far away...

Nevertheless, I'm waiting for the resin to cure right now so no more progress for today...

@alabamaheretic: That´s great, I must have done something right then, 'cause that was the look I was going for

@JackDarkmoore: . That's fine, bad time to run out of supplies indeed! Hope the resin works out fine then, will be waiting to see how it comes out.

To Camkierhi: The aerial on the back of the building is made of a real 1:1 POP rivet. How many extra points do I get for that ?

Cheers.

Setting the bar pretty low here, I've painted up my first piece. There's some more WIP shots of stuff in my blog and an iffy blurb about what I'm going for. The jist though is that it'll be a rest stop for pilots travelling between wasteland settlements, a home to those that brave the inhospitable deserts of the central US dustbowl. That ...fits the theme right?

Uh, that, or... an Ork did it.

Base colour Dark Green, Black light camo, Dark Earth for dusty look and very heavy oil wash with Burnt Umber. The result:

cool tent jack!

and I still don´t get the wing piece wyrmalla...but it looks very cool nevertheless...

also... I finally got my act together to start with an entry for this one...

it will be a nice log cabin... and it will be made from wood...and I try to be really artisan about it...like it would have been hewn as it should ...
but let me show you...:


this is how I started...the "logs" are 15cm long...and it will be a square log cabin thus...

raw materials


combined shots...with mean sergeant for scale...




no windows ...yet...or doors.... the roof will be separate to be taken off...as I plan to make the interior into a nice fitting scene to the theme of the comp...

thoughts?...

cheers, vik

@JackDarkmoore

Is that aqulia airbrushed on? Way to show me up on the painting front. ^^'

@ Viktor von Domm

Oi! ...Its ah ... The wing's to go at the front of the little plot I'm making, youknow, as a sort of entrance sign. It is not ...a random wing. Bigger picture people!



Are you going for a sort of American Civil War era log cabin thingy? I seem to recall seeing an article about such buildings and that happens to resemble the example one is all.

Ok made a start on my entry.

I wasn't sure if you wanted a pre-build parts shot Cam. So I took one anyway. Better to be safe then sorry aye?

This isn't all the parts mind. This is only what I've gathered so far.


Some 4mm thick corrugated card.
The plastic lid off a (very tasty) store brought cake. <------ Recycling materials. Bonus points Pl0x.


And a shot of the walls after they've been resized and cleaned up.



Pretty much, and as you might have guessed from the walls, it's going to be a tower. Pretty much just gonna be an old observation tower that has become a snipers nest.
I will be putting progress up in my terrain blog for those who are interested. There is a link in my sig.

Yes, I have made a custom stencil and airbrushed from a distance to try to give it a more weathered look. Dont you like it?

at dave... I assure you there will be a stove... but not skirts wearing officers...I know it will be a...wait for it...drag...but I gotta concentrate...

also...I will later on update...but the plan is to make it a merger of old and futuristic... a log cabin with some more modern stuff inside... not really completely planned out yet...but it will be in essence one small base for my praetorian stempunky army ...so some tie- ins to be expected to happen... and if time allows it will get some scenic outside additions too...

at jack...have no fear... airbrushed aquilla looks super!

at wyrmalla...now I have quite a good idea...I am thinking about Bartertown now

at snurb...that cake container looks very promising... and I now wonder where the cardboard stuff will be used....

this is the first glued together parts of the walls...with cut out windows and doorframe...all will be made way neater in the coming days...


and then the floor was done too today...:


for now everything is made of the wood you get of those firecracker rockets for new years eve...all salvaged from the streets of berlin...so currently all 100% recycled materials...

You crafty bugger Vik.
Cabin of the woods is looking good. (love the reference btw, if I were a judge you'd be getting a bonus point for that.)

Littletower that barracks is grouse. All the little details on it are excellent. The meshed windows, the keypad on the door. It's all good.
