Battle in a box UPDATE

After another long hiatus I've finally got my act together to post something! The pictures above are of some factory - industrial building terrain bases for my Battle in the box project, in the background are a painted village base and a walled manor/farmhouse base. All the bases are 30mm square and the buildings are glued onto 1p coins. The factory chimneys are made from the insides of some dismantled gel pens. Next up I'll be looking at producing some forts.

The top picture shows my original Battle in a Box box, sitting on top of a new one recently purchased, for the princely sum of  £9.99 The new box has a double decker layout with two internal trays.

Here's hoping this is the start of some more regular blogging from me, but I have said that before!!!

Painting Bridges

Finished bridges in green livery, for some bits of bright blue plastic that were destined for a landfill site they haven't turned out to badly. I've left the road surfaces black for the present, once I embark on my road building program I'll probable re-paint the surfaces to match up with road surface I settle on.

Building bridges

Always on the lookout for useful items which I can utilize for my terrain projects. I spotted two garish blue plastic bridges on a child's railway set which we where throwing out. They reminded me of pictures I had seen of bridges from the low countries in WW1 & WW2 and the size looked close to 10mm scale which I'm using for my early WW1 forces and WW2 blitz period forces.

The bridge was much to wide, so I cut out the central section and re-glued the left & right parts back under the central section. I also removed the molded on hinges. The bottom picture shows a WW1 British trooper in 10mm scale to show the size.



We have lift off

Some pictures of my finished SF terrain for use with my Pendraken 10mm SF forces. I might even get my act together and try and enter their up coming painting competition, with some of my forces I'm also looking for some poundland plastic joke bugs which i saw a while ago and thought would make some good opponents for them.

I'm thinking of building some kind of base/HQ as an objective. Perhaps based on a floating island. More at the weekend with a bit of luck.
