About this project



What do we offer? 

09d7083d7a898532389bc60bf80b278a_originaDiorama 1

Our collection represents working areas or small futuristic laboratories for 28mm/32mm-scale wargames. Made of laser-cut MDF, unassembled and unpainted. It includes different-sized buildings, with playable interiors, small prop items as well as different coverages and walls to create corridors and bounded areas. At campaign start point, there are two buildings: the first is a stackable rectangular building as working space and the other buildings represent rooms for the smartest workers. Plus three smaller elements, the dumpster, the clean-air supplier and the vending machine.  

During campaign we'll enjoy unlocking different designs and possibilities for the pledges.

What is New?

What is innovative is that it solves the great problem about scenery terrain pieces: to store it. You'll see it and you'll make a space on your shelf. After each encounter, all the gaming table can be packed into a minimal space!! fifty eight scenery elements in a single package!!

But not only the biggest pledges are interesting. The following video shows how one Office Module can also be fabulous.




Elements Review

The design handles with material thickness and geometry, in order to get a minimal packaging when stored, so each object reduces his size to be stored inside a bigger one. At the campaign starts, the biggest objects can contain more elements than the offered ones, so if campaign grows, many more objects could be stored inside the same packaging. Also, if campaign goals grow and grow, it could appear new designs larger than the initial packaging to envelop all like a Matrioshka!! 


Let's talk about the elements:  




  • Office Module: This is the campaign cornerstone!! In the future, working areas grow or close day to day. Collateral Studio has created a Modular Building System. Corporations can place it in any site when it is needed, stacked or scattered on the ground floor. It's a rectangular 210x120x55mm-sized building, and when you fold it, 110x110x60mm-sized. It contains a foldable module, a roof, four coverage walls for the roof and a stair, as well as windows, doors and skylights, all of them removables or not. If you want to stack some modules, then store the leftover roofs and coverage walls and keep only one roof and some coverage walls to cap the building.

  • Capsule Hotel Room: In order to stage a futuristic working area, we enjoyed thinking about a world where hard workers can´t return home every day. Around the factories, laboratories and offices, small places to rest will appear. This is the idea. The prismatic building is a Capsule Hotel Room 45x100x65mm-sized. Each room has a solid module with a door and a window, a roof piece and one add panel piece. There is a ladder marked on the façade to access roof.

  • Coverage Elements: Who can imagine a working area without a soda vending machine? Every Labor Union demands clean areas or unpolluted air. So, to solve this request, Collateral Studio proposes three add-ons to get a better working space. The dumpster is a 30x55x22 mm-sized prism that offers coverage to half a man's body; the clean air supplier is a 45x24x45mm-sized prism that offers total coverage to a humanoid troop in the front and back side, but not in the laterals, and vending machines are 28x28x55mm-sized prisms that provide the possiblity to cover only when the humanoid troop is standing and stuck to the machine.

  • Walls: In a Corporation, every area is not accessible to any people. In order to complete the workspace and to increase privacy, security managers delimit areas with walls of different heights. In Corporation Box sets, these walls are L-shaped and their lengths vary between 190x100x45mm and 160x65x23mm. They are decorated with engraved lines and cut holes with tabs, but you can decide whether to remove or leave the holes. So you'll get opaque walls or fences. There are nine nested walls, that can be stored inside an open office module or a square room*

.*square room'll be an add-on, but at campaign start it is a choosen item for multipass level pledges.

      Overview
       
      I recently finished my first piece of scatter terrain! I used it as a test for a bunch of techniques I'd been learning from The Terrain Tutor YouTube channel. I used two boulders that I had cast using the Woodland Scenic rock molds (I think one was from mold C1233 and the other from C1230, but I could be mistaken) and Durham's Water Putty. I had painted them up previously for practice, and noticed that together they made a pretty nice split boulder. I had an extra 3' x 3' foam core square from my ongoing dungeon tile project, and decided to make some scatter terrain as a diversion from all the Bones V waiting to be painted.
       

      A picture of the finished piece with a Reaper goblin mini (77024) for scale.
       
      Process - Sculpting
       
      I started by peeling off one side of the foam core paper, and used a hobby knife to create a shallow slope around the center. Then, I used Liquitex Modeling Paste to create a big glob in the middle for the boulders to sit in, fill in all the cracks, and smooth out the transition from stone to foam. I deliberately let some of the paste squeeze up into the crack between the two rocks to create the impression of a smooth arc of soil that had built up over time. The paste can be mixed with paints, but due to the way I wanted to apply texture later on I decided against it. Once the paste had dried, I moved on to applying texture and painting the ground.
       

      You can see that initial soil arc here; I sculpted it a bit further to achieve a more realistic look.
       

      More sculpting and slathering to mask the edges of the rock and create the illusion that it's buried in soil.
       
       
      Process - Ground Texture and Painting
       
      The next step was to add texture and paint to the ground. I first applied a layer of Burnt Umber acrylic that had been mixed with a bit of PVA (white glue; the Elmer's stuff. I got a two pack at Dollar Tree that works fine. Don't get the school variety as it's extremely watered down and doesn't stick nearly as well). Then I drizzled on a "soil" mix I had made from: mostly fine sand, some coffee grounds, and a little cat litter. Ideally, the paint/PVA mixture should be laid on thick enough to absorb all this grit and cement it in place once it dries. I didn't apply enough of it, so as an additional measure I spritzed the whole thing with a 6:1 water/PVA mixture. This worked in sealing everything, but made the piece extremely damp and necessitated leaving it to dry overnight.
       
      After everything was dry, I put on a layer of Raw Umber to darken the soil, unify the grit, and cover up any exposed bits of white modeling paste. Once that was finished, I did a quick dry brush pass with a lightened Raw Umber to bring out the texture of the soil. With that, the ground was finished!
       
      I must admit, at this point I had what looked like a great riverbed and boulder on my hands and was tempted to do a deep pour water effect! But I quickly reigned myself in since that was not the goal of this project. Soon though, soon...
       

      The ground texture anchored in the paint. Bits of this came off at various points during the process,
      but the PVA did its job quite well, considering.
       

      The Raw Umber did a good job of tying everything together, and let bits of the Burnt umber through
      for some lighter patches.
       
       
      Process - Boulder Paint Touch-ups
       
      As much I wanted to get to the main event (flocking!), I needed to touch up the lower edge of the boulder; there was no way I could hide all of it. So I did a quick and dirty touch up with the same wet technique I used to paint them initially: a base coat of grey, and once that's dry, watered down browns, greens, and blacks to create color variations, moss, and dirt. Finally a quick homemade black wash added the final touch. I also used the black wash to mark out some rivulets that would have carved their way out from the crack and create a bit more variety in the soil. Then finally, I could move on to the most anticipated bit: the flocking!
       

      The initial stripe of grey paint across the bottom of the boulder. I wasn't too meticulous; the water
      from the next layers smoothed out the transitions between the existing paint job and the new one.
       

      An example of some of the blotches and colors I was applying. Unfortunately I don't have a picture
      that includes the black wash.
       
       
      Process - Flocking and Final Touches
       
      The flocking itself was relatively simple. I used three shades of Woodland Scenics Fine Turf:
       
      Burnt Grass - T44 (highlight) Green Grass - T45 (base) Weeds - T46 (shade)  
      First, I applied PVA glue that had been slightly watered down, just enough so it's almost a liquid but not quite. Then, I sprinkled the highlight into the more open areas where the grass would be drier, the shade into wetter and more covered spots, so near the rock and crack, and then covered everything with a healthy dose of the base. I didn't use a lot of the highlight because I was worried I'd overdo it, but I could have used more as the base really takes over if you let it. I tapped off the excess flocking that hadn't been absorbed by the PVA before using a tiny bit of Coarse Turf (Medium Green - T64) to create a little bush in one side of the crack, and one out in the open. I used a toothpick to drop a bit of regular PVA where I wanted the bush to go, and then just stuck it in place. After about an hour elapsed, I sealed the whole thing by spraying it with the 6:1 water/PVA mixture and leaving it to dry overnight.
       
      The final touch was to use black paint to seal the white edges of the foam core.  I'm very pleased with the end result, and it's solid as a rock. This will certainly be able to stand up to some abuse without losing any flocking or texture. Thanks for reading this far!
       

      Two more glamor shots of the finished piece; this is the first one. You can just spot the bush peeking out
      of the crack in the middle, and some cat litter "stones" in the field.
       

      Here's the other side, with a bush on the left and a "wetter" appearance around the crack. Some of the
      lighter Burnt Umber is also peeking through at the front left edge.
