I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

Story

Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 

With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.

The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.

Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.

And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.

Talking about railroad tracks:

We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with

  • 4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or
  • O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks

The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.

All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      The name and colours are from a real French cafe I used to go to in CA. I added a bedsheet rope made from PVA-soaked paper towel to one of the windows and a zombie trapped inside the building.

      I thought my post-zombie apoc town could do with a charity shop. Dogs Trust is a real charity, and the building's colours are based on the store in the English town where I used to live.

      I painted another MDF building, and attempted some murals on the walls. The store is named after a 1980s computer game I loved.

      Building by Atomic Laser Cut Designs, painted as a local newspaper office. It's for my post-apoc zombie setup. Painted with texture spray paint, craft paint, Vallejo and Citadel acrylics.

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!
