Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

Time for my constructed (but not fully painted) Beastmen and Dwarf armies to hit the gaming table. My mancave is not large, but I managed to install three polystyrene insulation plates as a table on top of my small desk. A large brown curtain will act as muddy ground.

Battle report will follow soon...

When I started collecting Star Wars Miniatures I always envisioned large tabletop battles. The battle of Hoth has appeal for many Star Wars fans, but I always liked Episode VI most. (Until Rogue One came out! Now EP VI is my second most favorite SW movie.)

Not to float off-topic, I started making some scenery specificly for Star Wars tabletop battles. And no, I'm not going to buy SW Legion. The business decision to make their game 35mm instead of keeping it compatible with the previous 28mm range killed the momentum. I don't feel like buying another range of the same mini's.

In my garden shed I have been making some wooden bases and drilled some holes in them to hold nails. These nails will be used to keep in position small branches from a real tree.

I've cut these branches from a tree and let them dry out for quite some time. They have a diameter of 3 to 4 cm.

The foliage selected from aquarium decoration makes the scenery pieces more forest-like. They now serve as difficult terrain.

I'll be playing a 28mm tabletop battle between Ewoks and Scout Troopers anytime soon using SW Miniatures game rules (replacing squares with inches for moevement). (And activating squads instead of single mini's...)

The exterior of the buildings in my model Adriatic town will be applied using paint and sand. However, for the interior, I want to avoid such an easy solution.

On a certain evening when drinking tea I spotted this awesome pattern on the inside of a Lipton box for tea bags. After some more sips I collected the cardboard boxes and stashed them away in my scenery bitbox.

Now's the time to apply this wonderful wallpaper!

The houses in my Adriatic town are under construction. Recently I received an advertisement brochure for ceramic tiles and wooden floors in my mailbox. One of the pages had a large picture of a wooden floor, with a scale perfectly for 28mm buildings...

Scissors and glue delivered a great result! I also started working on wallpaper. More to show soon...

The main driver was my High Elves army nearing completion ... with base-coat colors that is.

Two styrofoam isolation boards provide for a 120 by 125cm gaming table in my rather small man-cave.
