  1. Seeing the nice results on different wip's using "N" scale Outland Models buildings for CAV terrain, I picked up a few kits myself....and I actually finished one! This is the train railway modern garage / logistic center. I was shooting for a fairly new concrete precast type building. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I used mostly sponge stiling to achieve the look. Here it is with one of my best painted CAV for scale ( he is in the classic B&W T.V. Camo pattern ). Now for the problems....I was able to get a nice sky / earth effect on the window panes, but it does't even show in the photos. Next one I will probably use brighter colors for the sky and earth reflection. The decal on the roof was also a big fail. I tried a method of rubbing the ink off of a printed page as shown on the Baremetal YouTube videos. That was a failure. I used an inkjet printer and I suspect he used a laser printer which would explain the problem I ran over. I was partially successful in hiding the problem by printing out a badge from the CAV kickstarter and varnishing it to the roof. The center of the badge was cut out and I stipled blue in the cutout. Lastly my clumsy hands broke several assembly pins while assembly the building with all the paint on it...so superglue came to the rescue! Anyways C&C is welcome. -MIKE

    Witch House

    A repurposing of what was once an innocent craft store decoration into the abode of witches and their minions. What horror dwells within... Willow Greenivy and friends emerge to traumatize the trick or treaters.
  3. Hello All, I was looking on the internet for some buildings to use with my Cav forces so having a look at the scale a lot of reasonable models pre-painted came up as well as the 4ground ones you need to put together yourself then I came across these ready damaged buildings. And theres a few different variants and they don't break the bank either. looks a nice kit comes flatpack and easy to just clip together, the Cav is for scale and as you can see not bad, just deciding whether to spray it then add some burns marks for recent damage or weathering to make it a bit more like the ones that I've seen done for drop zone commander with all the foliage on them. what do people think will use this topic to show any progress with my painting regards '66'
  4. EDIT: Kickstarter is now Live! "Hi everyone, we are back - and with a brand new Kickstarter! Later this week we are launching a Kickstarter featuring Viking and Anglo-Saxon ships, buildings and accessories - and we wanted to get the word out. Yes...more ships! During the Kickstarter we'll be making some of our older ships and popular models available for a limited time as well as the new ones. Same designs - but now unpainted. To recap on our history: Last year we closed up our webstore and decided to pretty much quit making models. But after some thought we came up with the idea for a "Model of the Month" (MoTM) - evolve to go forward! Each month we make a brand new model available for purchase - we take orders, build and ship exactly that number, then "retire" the kit and move on to something else on the next month. We have been slowly building up customers and getting the word out there. Some models did better than others but what was clear to us was that we still enjoyed making models, just at a more relaxed pace. Only doing one model a month was way more enjoyable and because we could mass-produce more efficiently - it's also a better business model for us. Renaissance Miniatures has never been our bread and butter. We do okay on Model-of-the-Month and Kickstarters but the webstore was always more pain than gain. Then came our small Viking ship as one of our MoTM offerings. Vikings was a genre we had never done before but our ship models are always a favorite of customers. So, rather than spinning them out over months - lo and behold: A new Kickstarter featuring what a lot of people know us for..ships! The Model of the Month is on hold right now while we get the Kickstarter running - but it'll start up again in a couple of months. But for now, the Viking Kickstarter is the main priority. Getting the models made and sent out to backers as quickly as possible. So please join us next week and follow along. Give us some feedback and lets make this fun again. We love talking with you guys. And we love having our models be involved with your enjoyment of tabletop gaming. Now....lets play! If all goes well, we'll launch the new Kickstarter on the 9th (this coming Friday)"
  5. I need to to take a village with me to Huzzah in Maine in two weeks, to use in a 40mm Renaissance game. My collaborator and I have used somewhat underscale buildings for 40mm battle games before, so I thought this would be a good excuse to get some Fold-flat buildings from Fat Dragon done. The building on the left is a basic 4x4 square, which I built a year or so back. The three stir one on the right is new today. Some of my 40s are here to give me an idea whether this looks right. Here's a view of the bigger one, each story extending a bit more... Once I had warmed up, doing another 4x4 small building, with a slightly different layer choice in the printing, only took about 45 minutes. I've three more already printed out today, so I'm hoping to get this finished this weekend. 6 should be enough for this game...
  6. Hi everyone, Lately I've been using throw-away plastic bits like blister packs and sauce cups as molds to make plaster buildings. It's a pretty cheap way to get a lot of buildings and once you start collecting things to use as molds you'll be amazed at what's out there. https://youtu.be/Yvmb6F_2ivw
  7. >>Frame-Werx<< offer files for Laser-Cutting or 3D-Printing. Out of these files it is possible to make buildings with roof or not. For Fantasy, modern or SciFi games. 3" SUARE BASED GAMES: or OPEN TABLETOP GAMES: As an addon are also incl. files to make buildings for smaller grid games such as: Arcadia Quest, Masmorra, Super Dungeon Explore and others. I find this interesting, but I'm not sure how much it will cost to get these printed or laser-cutted, so I need to find out about it in my area where I live.

    Scenery on the cheap: ideas

    Has anyone noticed that those brown plastic inserts in chocolate boxes, when flipped upside down, look a lot like industrial storage tanks and bunkers?
  9. Seeing one of the recent KS, I was suddenly reminded of one of my childhood loves. And by golly, they're still being made! (But aren't cheap. Though maybe they were always expensive) Suddenly a near forgotten memory becomes a modern city landscape kit. Now to figure out the scale of these. I remember plenty of my toy cars going through them (often crash through). P.S. According to their website, scale is HO 1/87.
  10. This was one of several terrain pieces my husband gave me for my birthday earlier this month, a "Medieval Cottage 1300 - 1700" from Perry Miniatures. This is the first hard plastic miniature I've ever put together, and I'd like to thank the other forumites who gave me advice on glues and things. It came on several sprues, three I think it was, and went together pretty easily. The doors open and shut. There is also a small shed for animals or wood or something, and a lot of woven wicker fencing. I didn't take any pictures of the assembly or priming, but at the moment it has been thinly primed with transparent white and washed for shadows with Burnt Umber. A lot of the original grey plastic still shows through. I am probably going to paint this very strangely.
  11. Has anyone got recommendations for terrain of a suitable scale for CAV robots, with a particular focus on buildings? I am told the scale is 10mm, which I am told is about 1/180, or model railroad N scale. There are a lot of readymade and kit model railroad buildings out there, although most of them seem to be smaller and more rural or historical. Are they worth the price? Hydrocal is like plaster, isn't it? So a hydrocal building would be pretty heavy. Styrene, however, sounds a bit fragile. But I don't know; it's not my area of expertise. I have some vision of playing the game among futuristic, relatively tall skyscrapers. While I'm pretty sure I can make some out of half-gallon milk cartons, I am wondering what other possibilities are out there and if anyone can recommend -- or warn against -- products or processes.
  12. So I'm thinking of building terrain "fronts" by taking some leftover foamcore, some photos of buildings, and creating some fold-out support ('L-shaped?) so that they will stand up. Has anyone ever tried this? I'm thinking of building fronts because a) more easily stored b) give me lots of flexibility to create mood c) my GNL mats will be used for layouts. d) faster than building full, playable bulidings I'm wondering about sizing. if I do 12 ft per story, that'll fit on an 8x11 paper? I suppose I should compare it to my existing 2 floor MDF stuff, but different eras. I still have no idea yet whether I can find enough photos at sufficient resolution to do this. I took one from google streetview (spoilered), which is also 3 storeys. I suppose I will test something out and report back. In the meantime, please make suggestions, refer to other similar projects/products you're aware of. Thanks.
  13. An early look at some of the prototypes from Renaissance Miniatures upcoming Caribbean pirates terrain kickstarter expected later this year. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/renaissanceminiature/east-asian-village-for-28mm-gamers/posts/738775?at=BAh7CDoMcG9zdF9pZGkD10ULSSIIdWlkBjoGRVRpAxViJ0kiC2V4cGlyeQY7BlRJIhgyMDE0LTAzLTA1IDA0OjA3OjM2BjsGVA%3D%3D--1c724e544c16329be3ad7e390546b2f1577743de&ref=backer_project_update These are the folks who brought us the Medieval Village and East Asian Village kickstarters, so this should be good.
  14. This is posted mainly for (Darsc Zacal)...a member who suggested that I add an open air market to my (3D) shire. I think that the idea was fantastic and I will be starting work on this shire board piece in the very near future. I just wanted to let him see my art draft concept ideas for the booths that I will be building and the board will be designed as a combination idea of a farmers market & renaissance fair...I do want to give full credit to (Darsc Zacal) for the idea...thank you!
  15. This is the last piece of my (3D) shire that I can show. It is a tabletop game play scratchbuilt terrain piece (16"x14") and features the Sporting House, Sheriff Cottage & Jail...built on my standard ceiling tile base. The photos feature the following: 1. Overview of piece from the top. 2. Overview of piece from corner angle. 3. The balcony view of The Chateau (Sporting House). 4. Side details of (Sporting House). 5. The Sheriff cottage. 6. Small jail house. 7. Young lady on balcony of (Sporting House) doing local advertising. 8. Overall view of piece with game play figures (view 1). 9. Overall view of piece with game play figures (view 2). I hope that you have enjoyed the viewing of the (9) shire game play terrain pieces that I have posted,,,(7) completed & (2) are WIP. Everything else is still in the raw initial stages of buildings being built (not very interesting and boring stuff). I appreciate all the comments and feedback that I received from a number of the members...Thanks loads!
  16. This is another section of my (3D) shire for (RPG) fantasy tabletop gaming. This is the (Hot Springs Bath & Barber Shop)...(16"x14")...scratchbuilt in my standard way using a ceiling tile base...The only thing left to do on this piece is the (water casting...it will be casting resin...on both the water fall & pool water area).
  17. This is a fantasy shire section that is a (WIP)...it will be a tabletop game piece when finished...it is (14"x12") built on a standard ceiling tile base. Pictured are the following buildings: 1. Yankee Trader (a pawn shop). 2. Rooming House (cheap rates). 3. Dragon Shoppe & Bank (general store & bank). 4. Ceiling tile base board with road cut in. 5. General view of how this will look when finished.
  18. This is a game play terrain & building(s) piece of a country inn & stables in a tranquil setting (10mm scale). The whole piece is scratchbuilt (except for the horses & the single brown stag in the lower left corner). The piece is (16" x 16") built on a celing tile base. All rock formations are my plaster casts cut & sculptured as needed.
  19. This is the undertaker & blacksmith piece for my shire. It is a tabletop playing piece that is (14" x 11")...Completely scratchbuilt (as are all my shire boards)...I had fun in making the wooden body boxes & grave stones for the undertaker & doing a fully detail blacksmith shop with tarp roll up walls.

    Renaissance Miniatures Kickstarter

    Hey all, just saw this and thought people may enjoy this KS as it's a bit different then some that have been posted here before. Basically it's some modular laser cut buildings that are prepainted and look pretty good. What I like the best though are the carts and other scenery items are they're crazy affordable and just what I've been looking for. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1093338811/medieval-village-for-28mm-gamers
