Just discovered this plog. Your plasticard work is really inspiring. I need to get around to buying some. It would make my life so much easier! Your squigs look very cool too! Looking forward to more.

Check out my Project (B)log! I would love any suggestion or comments you may have.

It's been far too long since I posted here and I have a lot of catching up to do. First time posting with an iPad.. Here goes


This is a vehicle I built from ramshackle games for a post apoc GURPs game I had running for awhile. The gun is attached via magnet.


Another one from ramshackle. This one is mainly used for scenery.


The next three shots are a fisher price airport that I started a few years back, I still would like to add some finishing touches.




And another toy turned scenery

@dsteingass yes rivets are needed.


So for my birthday I got a new camera which I am totally thrilled about. I can finally post some worthy images.

Lets start with a project I mentioned a while back. My Magnetic Forest. I used railroad trees, and magnets to create a kind of modular forest. All the pieces can be rearranged at will.

When I was in the army we built wooden kill houses to practice room clearing. This next project was inspired by that.
I built these using my jigsaw. Here they are laid out like a city street.

Here they are as multistory buildings

Or a single large building... with furniture

and just because I had the jigsaw out I started a 28mm dollhouse



These pre made little jewelry boxes made great pill boxes.



Thanks you looking. All comments and suggestions are welcome.

Love the pill boxes! They look fantastic, and I may need to borrow that idea

Imagine the feeling when you position your tanks, engines idling, landing gear deployed for a low profile, with firing solutions along a key bottleneck. Then some fether lands a dreadnought behind them in a giant heat shielded coke can.

@darkPrince010 thanks! they were very cheap, fast and easy.

I have made an oath that I will not build, convert, sculpt, mold or cast anything until I make a significant dent in my paint list. I have several character figs that I want to spend some time with and then I have an entire Tyranid army that I am going to spray, base, and dip.

Here are a few shots from my WIP paint tray.

I keep all my painting stuff in a small cabinet and when I set up to paint I usually have to make several trips. I made this simple little tray that will fit in the small cabinet and still hold all my stuff.


I am truly focused on getting my painting done. I got lucky and had a good day of sun and primed most of my tyranids.

Besides that I have just been working on painting my sons Space Marine squad. He helped build, picked the scheme, and helped basecoat the red. Now Im picking out the details before highlighting and washing.

The color I am using for my sons Space Marines is a mix of Red and Orange. I am trying to decide whether to highlight with Orange or a mix of orange and yellow. Any suggestions?

I have so far been able to hold true to my oath. No building until all painting is done. It is not easy for me... So many great ideas that I want to start. I just got some procreate in the mail and I am eager to get back to sculpting. I want to cast up some custom grots and squigs. First I need to paint 200+ tyranids, 30+ orcs, 2 chimeras, a basilisk, a repressor, a rhino, and tons of other misc...

Most recently I have been nearing the end of this space marine squad. I plan to give them a red wash and then some extra highlights.


Got the base coat done on my basilisk crew. Not happy with the range finder.

My commissar is just about ready for a wash

I have had these guys done for a while now but I haven't gotten around to posting them. I am using pig-iron miniatures for a Rebel IG. The idea is that they are NOT crazed chaos cultists but rather just good soldiers following the orders of a corrupt few. That way they can have a clean professional look and still be evil.

Forest scheme

Sniper team


I still need to paint the vehicles but I am waiting until I get an Airbrush for that. I am really love the wicked tank treads on these guys. I see that I may need to scrape off the skull and wings in a few places..

Man, that's always hard to keep promises like that, 'cause there's always more stuff you want to build, new stuff you want to try...
I'd recommend, by the way, instead of a red wash, pick up some Liquitex Payne's Gray acrylic paint (like $2-3 at an art supply shop), thin it and do a wash with that. Works with just about any color, and looks WAY better than 99% of colored washes, in my opinion. Do a search on Payne's Gray wash and you'll see what I'm talking about.
I think the basilisk crew looks f'ing awesome.
Entertainment? I never got entertainment like that... must've been an FA thing...

Yes! Just barely sliding under the Threadcromancy timeframe.

Found a couple of your images when I was surfing the Gallery and had to find if you had a thread or not. Glad to see that you do. Your terrain is excellent! I especially like the weathering effects you've accomplished, and I'm really impressed how you've taken a Fischer Price toy garage and turned it into a functional and completely believable piece of wargame terrain.

The Zombies caught my attention as I've been putting a LOT of them together lately. And I also like the Cultists a lot. Your projects are all over the place and they are all very cool.

Subbed. I know you do not update frequently, but from what I've seen so far it's worth the wait.

I have decided to update and consolidate my terrain. I tossed some older pieces out into the garage to be reprocessed into something new. I have seen lots of "ruined city" builds… well mine is more of plain old city. Instead of collapsed walls and ruin I intend to have intact buildings full of purpose. I prefer small skirmish games so this suits me well.

My first update was to rip out a couple levels from the parking garage. I never really liked the way the multiple levels played. Too hard to move your models under.



The next project is updating my kill house concept. I cast a bunch of detail parts to give each room more flavor. I still need to paint them up to match the parking lot…

Also put this check point type shelter together from a kit. I like it, I think it needs some more detail work, some plant life, spent shell casings or something.... Bad lighting in this picture, sorry.

Your terrain is so very cool. It will be a huge twist on how games are played.

Have you had any problems w/ those Hurst casts? I have used them before. They look great but the plaster is brittle and doesn't take much to break off at the base where it is glued.
I've tried liquid and gel superglue. The glue doesn't come undone, it's the plaster that actually breaks at the base. There is always a bit of plaster left glued to the base of whatever I had it glued to. I can re-glue it w/o a problem but it always chips paint and will eventually break again- just above the new glue. . If you check some of my terrain pieces you'll see boxes and barrels and other things cast from Hurst. They look great (Hurst is awesome) but I've had some really bad luck with them.

I love the Hirst arts molds. The durability of the cast really depends on the quality of the plaster. The best I have heard of is dental stone... not easy to find in my area. I use a product called FIX-IT-ALL. I buy it at home depot for pretty cheap. It is also very helpful patching holes around the house.

I have had issues gluing it down if I haven't given the plaster enough time to dry. Some people use a food dehydrator or the oven... I like to set it by the fireplace until it gets a yellowish tint to it. I have had to same experience you describe with the plaster breaking and the glue holding, but never with a fully hardened piece.

My Mageknight terrain is around 6 years old and has maybe a handful of chips. Its has been handled pretty roughly too.

I usually cast a bunch at once and then don't use them for a long time (I lose interest in things when I have to wait for them) but I cast with hydrocal (slightly tougher than plaster). I've seen dental stone in action (I've bought some things from sellers on eBay) and while it is tougher it is still prone to breakage. Lost another barrel and crate this weekend in a game.

I need to step up to resin.

Some really nice scratchbuilding and kit bashing in this thread, as well as some excellent painting!

I love the fallen tower - it is rare to see good combinations of urban and overgrown terrain. Very nice.
