28mm 1/56th WW2 Wargames Terrain :Dave's Wargames:

Recommended Posts

About this project

About Me (Dave)

Hi all,

My name is Dave and I own and run Dave's Wargames. 

We have been established for about 1 year and are a business based in the North of England.

I first started the business after designing a paint pot holder on a friends laser cutter. I quickly decided to invest in my own machine of a larger size to allow me to design and cut all of the products that I make.

Reason behind the kickstarter

Over the past year I have toured UK war games shows to let people know about the business and products that I currently offer. The response has been great and I would like to give more people the chance to enjoy my products.

Using Kickstarter allows anybody interested in my products an easily accessible platform from which to purchase them at a discounted rate.

Main Kickstarter Products

The main products that I would like to promote through this kickstarter are my 28mm 1/56th scale WW2 buildings.

The package that I have available is the village pack which includes 2 Town houses, 1 Shop, 1 Ruined Shop and 1 Ruined House. On top of this pack I will also be including 6 sections of double sided six inch wall sections and 10 pin/casualty markers.

This pack is ideal if you are just starting to play WW2 table top games like bolt action, chain of command etc. Or if you are expanding your terrain collection.

Each building has a removable roof and top floor to allow access to both the ground and upper floor. The buildings have detailed internal walls separate doors and windows, the shop even comes with a counter and shelving, each building comes with a staircase to.

The pictures below show the external details of all of the buildings.

Design and Implementation

All products in this kickstarter have already been designed and produced previously meaning that there will be no wait time after the kickstarter ends before production can commence.

Neat, but the pledge levels are kind of wonky; there's no option for a single building forex.

      Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100.
      There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder.

      "After over three years in the making, we are proud to present you the Eternal Eight - a WORLD'S FIRST 3D mini war game with innovative real 3D RELIEF. 
      The goal of the game is to  capture the enemy’s King. The advantages of Eternal Eight are the 3D castles, fortresses and villages with a myriad of traps, labyrinths and  secret passages. All of the army bases (castles, villages, fortresses) are easy to assemble and move around.
      The game can be easily incorporated into your existing game table setup or provide a great addon to some of your existing mini war games."

      Stumbled across this and thought it might be of interest to some folks here.  Be a different way of putting together woods and stuff for traditional wargaming.
      Pretty much the entire 'leader' page is GIFs so I'm not going to try and copy it over to here.

      So, I invoke the 3 foot rule on these; one could go back and forth forever attempting to edge half-timbered buildings.
      I have been idly working on new scenery since the pandemic, and finished two more buildings plus a well I bought a few months ago.  (That’s lightning speed compared to some projects.)  These are sold on Amazon by some outfit called Ender Toys.  I picked up a group of four, and a second group of two, some fences and the well.  
      If these are an example of what I could get at home, I’m not rushing out to get a printer to wrestle with.  The filament lines are pretty distinct close up.


      However, they are light and didn’t take all that long to paint, so I think they will be fine in a game.
      I posted the earlier buildings plus some tree bases in this thread: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92205-tree-group-bases/
      The overall building collection now looks like this, including a Battle Masters tower:

      As Halloween approaches the dollar stores are filling up with cheap decorations and spooky bricabrac. Amid all the potential projects a certain reflective skull caught my eye. Not knowing if it would take paint or not I decided to roll the dice on a few. I attached them to some bases, added a bit of sand, and the next day I took them out to prime. 

      They ended up taking primer just fine, though I guess I shouldn't be surprised with the primer I use. Unfortunately I forgot to snap a picture of their grey primed goodness. 
      Next up were the basecoats of the skull and "dirt".

      I didn't get great or even smooth coverage on the skulls, but it was good enough as I was just going to add a heavy wash anyway.

      The wash was a bit thicker than I wanted but again I figured it was passable and more than good enough to move onto a final drybrush.

      Not too bad, but there is definitely room for improvement. I guess I'll just have to practice a bit more with my new drybrush. 

      I finally took the leap and tried Uncle Atom's makeup dry brushing technique. Though this project probably qualifies as a failure, I do see the potential. Now all I need is more practice, it's not like I don't have a huge backlog of terrain just waiting to be painted.

      Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics.

      Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's.
      They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. 

      They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would do the trick. 

      They come in a mix of sizes but they all look pretty good at 28mm scale. The cutting mat has half-inch squares.
      Most of the pumpkins are of the artistically exaggerated size compared to a mini, and the smaller ones tend to be darker and a bit more mishapen. The coloration in them is pretty decent. I think they could use a layer of highlights but if you're in a hurry or making a huge pumpkin patch, then they look just fine. 
      Anyways, I hope this is useful for someone!
