We have re-released our shipping containers. They are slightly bigger and far easier to build.

These are all 2" x 2" x 4" and come in three varieties.

See them in the store here


The standard shipping containers are a fast and cheap way to cover your board with containers. At $9.99 for 3 (and postage being $4.60 for up to three packs) this means that you could get 9 containers for only $3.84 each, landed cost.


The stacked containers is a faster way to get high LOS blocking terrain onto your table - each stacked container represents two standard containers stacked. These are $12.99 a pack (two stacks in each pack)


The sci-fi container is a set of 3 futuristic-looking containers. These have quite a bit more detail and are $13.99 a pack of 3

Great to see these available again. I will be sending an order soon.

These are really nice. Have you ever thought about doing walls for the Necromunda board included in the box game? There are some MDF laser cut versions, but those are pretty expensive and I don't think using card instead would be significantly problematic.

Thanks!
We are working on an entire range of that sort of terrain... But it is not quite ready yet. We'll post some wips when I can find the prototypes (they are packed away somewhere)

Just received two packs of the scifi containers in the mail. Looking forward to getting them assembled when I have some spare time

I'd be interested in your feedback. These ones were totally redesigned because frankly, I got sick and tired of constructing the old ones (I had to make something like 40 for a container board) and I wanted to make them as easy to build as possible. The trade off for this was a little bit of detail loss, but I think the balance now is far better.

I used normal white wood glue to constructed them, dabbing/spreading it on with my fingertip... no need for superglue. Elastic bands might help to hold the internal cylinder in shape for the 5 min it takes the white glue to dry.

All hail our robotic overlords!

We have redone our cyborg range (which can be seen in the store here)


Set 1 includes 2 obelisks and 2 sentinals. These have been restructured to be easier to build (we have added locator tabs on the side). This set is $10.95


You can keep them as 4 separate items, or you can stack them like this to make something a little different


The grand obelisk has also been redone with locator tabs, and is $9.00. It stands 14" high

Another change we have made is that all kits now come with the instructions in them, so no going to the website to download them. Makes things easier.
Attached are the build instructions for the cyborg kits (insanely difficult!)

This is a new kit we're working on... something big and chunky to block line of sight. It is a basic two part ziggurat that will replace the old statis tomb model


The two part thing is to make it easy to store (it is quite big) but you could plonk a monolith on top of it if you had one spare (or use it as a monolith docking port for when the poor things need to recharge)


The bottom layer will be 3" high so will block LOS from ground level for even quite large models


These are the relative heights of the current range.

Now to add some detail to it

I'll have to keep an eye on these to expand my Necron...er, "cyborg" terrain set.

Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

This is a test cut of an 8mm building for any upcoming 8mm titanic battle games you might have heard about.

The final copy is going to have slightly less detail as this version would be too expensive, but this first test is promising

Something fun we are working on... Chibi tanks.

Yes they can be used as grot tanks and we'll use them like that in our own armies, but we are mostly doing this to have a small, fun product that is aimed at kids


This is the Churchill tank


What is this... a tank for ANTS?

The second version of this is done. The original version (scroll up) had identical detailing on all sides, and whilst this looked excellent, was going to push the model into the $24 range


This version features more detailing on the roof but strips detail from the back


The back of the building, which in real life is where the corridors and fire escapes are, has far less detailing.

This version would retail for around $13.

Version 3 has been sent for cutting and hopefully this is a happy medium between the two

Wow! This stuff looks amazing. As someone who might be assembling and painting this stuff, I myself would like to see less detail than Mk 1, and more detail on the 'back and sides' than Mk 2. I'd prefer my buildings to have the same level of detail on all sides, so that placement is more flexible, but I can see the expense (in money and time) that Mk 1 would take.

Thanks! Assembly is a breeze no matter how much the details... just gluing 4 layers together for each wall. The issue is only cost and aesthetics. Hoping to have the final version back on Friday

The Churchill tank is done so onto the tiger. I don't like the wheels so that is going to get redone but the basic shape is right

These are test for two compatible corner ruins

Both ruins feature

- a textured base that includes pavement and interior tiles
- shutters on the ground floor windows to block LOS at ground level
- a textured wooden floor on the upper levels


Corner 1 has as long walls and one level


Corner 1 has a rose window and a large door




Corner 2 has lower walls and two levels


Bugs to be fixed in corner 2: the planking on the upper levels needs a 90 degree turn so that it matches corner ruin 1



Bugs to be fixed in corner 2: raising the height here just a little so that "that guy" cannot claim he can see your model


The two pieces are compatible with each other - the bases line up nicely

The chibi tiger tank is almost done. So cute! Kawaii!

It will come with the plastic tubing for the barrel.

Your grots will ride in style!

I am hoping they will be compatible with the goblin tank crew from Kromlech

Although perhaps not particularly grim or dark, we're dusting off this file to see if we can finish it.



Perfect for super hero games, and maybe for a weird "this planet looks just like ancient earth" 40k game. GREAT for blocking line of site.

This test cut was still too heavy, so the whole thing is being made smaller by 20%. This will drop the height from 23cm to 20cm but will hopefully bring us under the weight limit

Those chibi tanks are very cute and would be perfect for What a Tanker (look it up and listen to the Combined Arms podcast episode that talks about it).

The ruins are awesome. Exactly what I am looking for.

I used to regret not ordering your gothic ruins in the past, but I won't make that mistake this time!

Here is the paint test of one of the corner gothic ruins. These will be ready for release shortly.

These are "out the box" but I added a small amount of sand as scattered rubble.

The new models look great!

Just popped over to the site and noticed that the overall amount of model kits you offer has decreased over the years.

Ordered a couple of the new Cyborg kits.

Thanks for the order!

We had too many kits spread over too many ranges - that was problem 1.

Problem 2 was that I really didn't like it that people had to go to the website for build instructions and wanted nice, easy to understand lego-like instructions in the sets.

Problem 3 was that our regular card supplier got very expensive, and so we found a new supplier whose card is slightly thicker (1200microns instead of 900microns)

So we've pulled everything and are re-releasing it as we a) test the files with the new card thickness, and b) do the build instructions. And we are doing this in a way that can hopefully full out ranges before moving on to new stuff

Thank you for the explanation Neal.

I had suspected that some other company had buried you in cease and desist orders, but it's nice to know that was not the case.

Everything you've added to the catalog since the change over looks great. The years of design experience you've acquired show.

That brownstone is great! Sure, it works better for Earthside games, but if you had a art deco version of it, it would be prefect for 30k/40k games.
