7TV Post Apocalyptic Survivors, Randos, Tech Gangers, Fallout Mutant Hounds, Graves, and a Corrugated Junk Pile

Hello Distinguisher Viewer,

Today there are fifteen small things for you to look at.

First are three minis from Crooked Dice's 7TV Apocalypse game.

Reverse pic

Comparison with a Copplestone/EM4/Moonraker miniature, the Copplestone mini is shorter, but people vary in sizes.  I don't see why the older sculpts can't mix with the newer ones.

A Reaper WWI pilot, a Warlord Prussian Officer, and a WW2 German of unknown manufacture.

Here's two ancient Citadel Confrontation/Necromunda Tech Gangers with a Games Workshop Last Chancer model.  The one on the left has an Old Glory/Blue Moon robot arm added to it.

The two Citadel models have newer GW Cadian arms and flame thrower pack added.   I didn't use original arms for them.

Here are two Mophidius Fallout mutant hounds and an old Citadel model from back when the Imperial Guard or Astor Milliputorium was called the Imperial Army.

I wish I had painted the Guardsman red to match the earlier three red models.

An Old Glory Norman casualty.  I have hundreds of not casualty Old Glory Normans to paint.

Here are three resin grave models.   I can't remember who made them. The big one had a body in it which I Dremel tooled out.

The smaller gravestones broke off after I bought and dropped them.  The gravestones are made out of foam now.  The one on the right has a coffin made of matchsticks in it.

They sit quite high on the table.

Here's a crappy looking post apocalyptic outpost made only out of scrap pieces from earlier projects (and cereal box).

 It may look awful, but it does double as a topper to make my big rig look post apocalyptic.

Top view.

I plan on making more removeable armor or spikey thing add-ons to make the rig a proper war rig.
I wish I could find the missing headlights.

Till next time, when I'll probably have some Oldhammer dwarves, Saxons, post apocalyptic stuff, and who knows what else.

X-Wing Crash, Aliens, Steel Legion Guardsmen, Robots, Junk, and alot of Saxons

Happy Mother's Day Distinguished Internet Viewer,

     Today I have 81 little things to show you.  

First up is an Star Wars X-Wing crash scenery piece.

It's made out of an old Mattel toy that I scavenged for parts years ago.  The base is dense chip board, blue foam, plaster, sand, and craft paint.

The X-Wing got a quick airbrush, a tiny bit of blue marking, and generous stain washes.

Here are ten Old Glory/Blue Moon Plutonians.  I painted one of their heads like a candy corn to designate a leader.

Here are warriors from Uranus. :)   They are also Old Glory/Blue Moon.  They'd make great W40K IG conscripts.

For a leader, I gave one a Gargoyle Gang emblem on his jacket.

Here's an old Citadel tech ganger and some weird model from an unknown company.

The ganger has a space marine armor and an Old Glory robot arm.

Here are three Steel Legion Imperial Guardsmen, now called Astar Munchliptorium.

Here are some Wizkid models.    The robot things have Old Glory arms.  I think I will have to repaint the box shaped one, I HATE how it came out.

The panther is about the size of a 50 pound dog.

Three Antenocitis Workshop public phones and a Crooked Dice mini of a VCR, bottles, and tube tv on a tire.

Ten Saxon slingers.  All of the Saxons in this post are from Renegade and you'll notice I haven't finished the bases.  If I finished the bases, I wouldn't be able to tell them apart from Saxons I've shown you before.

Thirteen spearmen.

Six more spearmen.

Seven Saxons with chainmail and hand weapons.

Three horn blowers.

Lastly nine more spearmen.

Till next time my beloved, when I might have some post apocalyptic 7TV stuff to show you, but I never really know.

Gas Lands Post Apocalyptic Race Track and a Big Rig


Here's a race track I made for a Gas Lands game.  It's a little shoddy, but I wasn't going to spend days making terrain, for a two hour game.  It's 5' x 3'.

It's made out of $.80 vinyl tiles and foam core.   It's sitting a little cock-eyed in pictures, because it warped in it's storage box.  After the photo shoot, the mighty sun warmed the  tiles and it sat nice and flat.   I didn't take time for more photos as the raised ends are only held together with hot glue.  If it would get too warm they would come apart.

Gas Lands is mostly played with Matchbox scale cars, of which I only own one.  It's a pre-painted Walking Dead tv show car.

Some 28mm scale Ramshackle bikes rounding a corner.  I didn't know you needed three gates for the Gas Lands racetrack scenario, so I only made one.  It's made out of writing pens, bottle caps, and assorted junk from recycle bin.

Here's some 28mm scale Ramshackle jet bikes rounding a corner about to be attacked by some Uncle Vinnie brand robots.   The texture is sand and flock, glued to the primed vinyl tile.   The road portions are cut vinyl tile, spray painted black and dry brushed with dark grays.  
that one tile didn't receive the same color dry brushing.

The corners are lined with spike strips to keep drivers from hugging the turns too closely.

There are removeable fences designed to give spectators a false sense of security.

Here's a big rig I painted.  Who doesn't remember that old brand Fartland Milk?  "Smells as good as it tastes!"  By infusing the milk with high levels of methane, Fartland milk didn't need to be refrigerated until after you broke the seal.

It's a repainted $10 Walmart truck I bought at Walmart.  My cat Cthulhu absconded with the headlights at some point during the painting process.

 Till next time my beloved, when I'll have aliens, Saxons, and some random sci-fi minis.

Good Saturday,

Here is Weather Top terrain piece I made for a friend.

 It started as blue insulation foam.   There's wrapping trail leading up.

The only access to the very top being stairs.  It should be easy to defend.  Plaster up top to make it look more natural, yet still be able to hold other terrain pieces.

I couldn't make the shapes very realistic as the tiny soldiers would all tip over.

Lots of black house paint, followed by black spray paint.
 Various gray and brown base coats.  Drybrushing brings up earth texture.

The rocky steeper edges are tree bark.

Foliage added to hide gaps in bark.   Very watered down yellows, browns and greens wet brushed to give rocks natural color variant.

Construction sand of various sizes was glued everywhere.

Simple detail (impossible to see in any of these photos) was added to columns with white glue and printer paper.

The little brick top of the stairs looks stupid and foliage will be added to blend it to top better.

Green flock was sprinkled on white glue.

Several sprays of watered down white glue were applied to reallt lock grass flock down.

Till next time, my beloved, when I'll show you a Gaslands race track.
