Rubbish, Rubbish, and Stuff Made Out of Garbage

Happy Sunday Purveyor of Pictures of Little Things,

Today I have garbage post of trash minis, junk made out of junk, and smashed dollar store toys.

First up is a car made out of a "Fast and Furious" toy car.   The driver, a Cadian Imperial Guardsman, is wearing a Star Wars Naval Trooper uniform.

The car body was removed and the new body is made out newspaper soaked in glue.  I needed the body for a different project.  The passenger is Valhallan Imperial Guardsman.

Here is a Old Glory biker that didn't get painted with all his fellows.

Here are a bunch of garbage cans from Antenociti's Workshop.  I wish Mr. Antenociti had been born Mr. Smith.  That name is impossible to remember.  I could remember Smith's Workshop.

Here are some garbage cans made out of clothing dye bottle tops, cardboard boxes made out of thin chip board soaked in glue, and an unfired projectile made out of some weird Dremel tool bit.

Here are some books made out of paper and clay (one has a human face), some Reaper Bones urns, and strange die I found in a cave near Dunwich.

Here is a wooden table and wagon from Wizkids D&D primed plastic line.

Here is a kitchen thing and a bathroom stall pulled out of toy camper van.

There's an unwashed sink and toilet inside, trailer trash.

Here are some signs that came with a dollar store toy.

Here are some resin wooden walls, whose manufacturer I can't remember.  I just dry brushed them grays, browns, and greens.  I still need to paint the corners, but can't remember what paints I used.

Here are some really cool Mantic Games "The Walking Dead" barricades.  I have no idea of what the green and yellow things are.

They're plastic and I honestly don't believe these garbage piles  would do much more than slow down zombies.

Here are some tire piles.  I smashed dollar store toys up with a hammer and stole their wheels.

Here is a building for a post apocalyptic junk town, I've been slowly working on.

It sound like someone is riding a motorcycle on the roof.   Ho, ho, ho, it's Biker Claus, bringing guns to all the bad boys and girls.

The corrugated colors remind me of Senegal's flag.

Here are some of the quickest roads I've ever made.  You can see one of the smashed dollar store toys on the second one.

I finger painted rtv onto used sand belts, sprinkled construction sand, spray painted brown, and dry-brushed.

Till next time, my beloveds, when I'll probably show you some more post apocalyptic vehicles and who knows what.

love and kisses,


  1. That's some serious scratch building! Great stuff indeed!

  2. I like the car conversion Bacon. I'm actually looking for some cheap cars to mod at the moment. Where the fast & furious one's a good buy for a miser like me you think?

    The rubbish piles being effective at stopping gun fire always makes me laugh a bit too. You see wargaming buildings and barricades made to look like they're made out of corrugated iron. That stuff wouldn't stop an air rifle in real life, but in gaming? It's like Chobham and can stop just about anything :DDD

    Those road sections are a great use of sanding belts mate. very strong and flexible too. They look great!

    Cheers mate :)

    1. Thank you Mr. Papafakis, I got the last two from the local crap hole Toys R Us store, before the mega chain went out of business.

  3. Gorgeous, realistic and useful elements, well done!

  4. Masterful work as always, James! Amazing terrain and post-apoc guys.

  5. I do like seeing scratchbuilts bit and pieces, but I think you've surpassed yourself.

    1. I learned it from watching you, Dad, I learned it from you....

      that's from a public service announcement in late 80's talking about drugs.

      I learned how to make books from you, and garbage bags, and so much more.

  6. Great looking terrain and cars!
    Best Iain
