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.

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...)
