After I started working on my Soviet Russian girls, I soon noticed that I missed some usable terrain.

 

So it was time for me to start making some.

 

I checked my stuff and ... unfortunately I didn't have got any usable terrain. But I had some 28mm Warhammer 40k barrels and boxes. So ... what to do with those? ...

Luckily I am a person full of ideas and dreams and melancholy. So I remembered back in the days when I was young, I played a game called "Blitzkrieg".

 

"Blitzkrieg" was a lovely game using a lovely graphic engine for displaying things. And they had this wonderful supply depot, which I think would be perfect

First off I have have to prepare some boxes to later have a good foundation for the blanket.

... which ended in in looking like this:

Very nice work on the supplies!

 

I hope there's a crate of winter clothing in it.

So what material did you make the tarp from?

 

I forgot to say it, did I?

 

It's a simple tissue. I cut off the patterened pieces, then covered it in slightly watered wood glue and put it over the crates.

Isn't "weathering and snow" a little redundant? :lol: :poke:

 

Looks great!

Well, who knows where the equipment has been before. The snow is just the last stage of weathering. All the other stages and their peripheral matter (mud, dust and so on) are also part of the weathering. Therefore for me there is a difference :poke:

 

Thanks for the comment^^

And a farmhouse ... stable mixture. I don't know where this house is from. I bought it as a slightly damaged piece from a member of a German forum and repaired as well as repainted it. Then weathered it and finally applied some backing soda as snow.

Looks good, I think. Very fitting!

looks good to me!    I like how you manage to keep a cohesive look to all of the terrain.

It's all the same snow variant, therefore :-D Haha - I am happy it fits. And I am happy you like it!

      For a change, I'm actually getting to PLAY, rather than be the GM: one of my veteran players is taking over in order to run a Pathfinder RPG campaign -- the "Kingmaker" campaign - -while I take something of a break.  However, I can't just take a break completely, so even though the GM has a bunch of pre-painted Pathfinder and D&D minis at the ready for the campaign, and is using printed battle maps, I have been focusing on kit-bashing and painting minis for the PCs (and eventually whatever companions and cohorts they pick up on the way).
       
      Recently, the adventurers acquired a wagon after defeating a bunch of bandits.  It was a wagon in pretty sad shape, but they fixed it up, and hitched up a couple of horses "liberated" from the bandits.  This has made it a lot easier to tend to their assigned task of exploring an area known as the "Greenbelt" -- hunting down monsters (or, in the case of the kobolds, making peace with them), and dealing with rampant banditry.
       
      From left to right (rear row):
      * Human Paladin Sir Greys (Reaper #77197, "Erick Paladin Initiate")
      * Elven Kineticist Selana Kelsa (Reaper #77036, "Devona Female Wizard")
      * Gnomish Rogue Lis (composite of old Mage Knight miniature pieces)
      * Grippli Oracle Chirp Meadowsong (Reaper #77165, "Hellakin Goregutter," with head swap from Reaper #77268, "Squog Warriors")
      * Kitsune Magus Yuri (Reaper #77473, "Kogo Male Kitsune")
      * Half-Orc Sorcerer Gruush (Mage Knight Minions #065 "Medicine Troll")

      Foreground:
      * Human Warden* [spell-less Ranger variant] Rook Greys (Reaper #77320, "Galadanoth Elf Sniper")

      The horses are a couple of plastic Games Workshop Warhammer Fantasy Battle horses (presumably from some sort of Empire set).  I had some "bitz boxes" out in the garage that I picked up at a game bazaar, including several horses -- either on sprues, or with badly-mangled partly assembled riders stuck to them with overly-caked glue.  I tried assembling a few and "dismounting" a couple more.  The two pictured are just two I randomly picked out for the picture.  (I figured there wasn't much sense in just taking pictures of the horses, since none of them are Reaper; they all need saddles and such.)
       
      The wagon has wheels, cabinets, lanterns, keg, and crates/barrels of Hydrocal castings done with Hirst Arts Castlemolds.  The rest of the wagon is made up of wooden craft sticks (a mix of "popsicle sticks" and "matchsticks"), plus a couple of plastic head-pieces that someone had trimmed off of some Warhammer Fantasy dwarven mining carts for some purpose, and a random plastic shield hung on the side to show the heraldry for "Erastil" (since at least two members of the party -- the Greys cousins -- are followers of Erastil).  I used some epoxy putty to add a cushioned seat for the driver's bench.  I hope to personalize the wagon more as the campaign goes along -- adding trophies, maybe even some more shields or banners with heraldry of the rest of the party, or perhaps even a top for the wagon (if we can afford it, and get it done somehow back at the trading post).
       
      I'm also working on some pieces to represent an adventurer campsite, but they need a little bit more work before I bother taking a photo.  (I tried making some tents with paper, and some others with putty.  Results were ... mixed.)  I suppose that's another thing I could imagine being useful from Bones: an "adventurer tent" (maybe even make it hollow), a "bedroll," and some sort of campfire (in translucent yellow or orange?): bonus points if it has a suspended kettle or a spit over it.  Beds and shelves are great for dungeons, but some scenes happen while the PCs are traveling and their camp gets ambushed by monsters out in the woods.  Or maybe the PCs are the ones doing the ambushing!  :)

       That right guys and gals their not just for wedding cakes ... I like to fill mine with expanding foam (when I have a few foam projects lined up, the can of foam never works for me later so it's a use it or lose it) chop em up (once dry) and butter the ends with something rough and stout (I used flexall) ... a few examples from a city set I was working on before I moved (still unfinnished) ...
       

       
       cities abound in hard cover so it's mostly for looks, nice looks but looks ... in a jungle or desert set it's a great way to add hard cover and have an overgrown lost temple (jungle) or lost oasis side ruins (desert) ... it's a simple and straight forward technique to add just the right sized cover in just about any table set you got ...
       
       I got a large bag of them fairly cheap at a craft store (Michesls) a great value for the buck.
       
      P.S. the Grey rubble is old model sprew rum through an old hand crank meat grinder ... who knew modeling could be so much fun !

       Started building a Kulathi battle force and colony outpost for their Kuden-3 outpost, in the Beehive star cluster, in the crab nebula ... 
       
      Having 3 fingers a hand and 6 limbs the number system fore the Kulathi is based on 6 ... with 2,3 and 4 also prominent, so I based there units on 6 ...
       
      An officer (2 pistols = smg) 3 left hand smg and 2 right hand automatic rifles make a strike team ... no other unit types teams can exceed the number of strike teams.
       
       The fire team has 1 officer 1 smg and 4 auto rifles ... a longer ranged bite.
       
      I'm also adding a few hound of Tindalos units (4 with 1 smg and 1 officer kulathi) with bigger things in the works ...

      Here's a group of 20mm Bunderwehr soldiers which I did for a skirmish game. They are from Revell of Germany and Elhiem miniatures.
       
      Special emphasis was laid on their Flecktarn camo as it is a very distinctive pattern and is absolutely horrible to paint in such a small scale. But I think it came out pretty decent.
       
      Enjoy!

      Hey everyone,
       
      Here's a 20mm Qin Chinese sword fighter from Caesar miniatures, which I painted two years ago as a test miniature for a 20mm variant of Warhammer Ancient Battles - the project never really came to life, because then all my companions decided they didn't want to do it in 20mm anymore.
       
      I still have got a group of those ancient Chinese fighters, and this one is the best looking, I think (haha). Never got the NMM right, nor the real metallic (or what it is called), but I think he came out pretty decend with his head wound (which is a cover up of a missed seam line).
       
      Enjoy the pictures.
