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.

Conversions are not exclusively for miniatures! It can be done with cardboard scenery too. I'll show a custom job on a building from Terror of the Lichemaster in this blogpost.

The plastic door is from the game Dark World. The gameplay is bad. (Some 7-year-olds might like it...) But the contents are great to scavenge for parts.

Board Game: Dark World

I used a saw to cautiously remove the hinges of the wooden door from the "Burg Des Schreckens" scenery piece.

I have also devised my own tool to help me construct the cardboard buildings. A clothespin is very handy to keep the cardboard parts in place while the glue hardens. But sometimes the are is very narrow. Nothing a saw can't fix!

Sometimes the clothespins can't be used. It's then when you have to be inventive as this last picture shows:
