City Board for All Quiet on the Martian Front

Working on a city board for the All Quiet on the Martian Front game.  The roads are being made with mounting card then I will use the 4Ground cobbled street stencil and render on top.  I am not going to fix the buildings so I can put on different types

Roads rendered and now starting on the pavements using more mounting card and plastic sheet.

Reaper Tripod Pod - All Quiet on the Martian Front

Finished my Reaper Tripod Pod for the All Quiet on the Martian Front game. They are one official Reaper and two converted Slavers.  The converted Slavers tentacles are made from extra long posable wrapped wire from Zinge Industries.  I used the 2.4mm with custom lengths of 150mm, you just email them for a quote for the length you want.

The one in the centre is the Official Reaper on its silly thin legs.

ArcWorlde Halflings Part 2

Finished up my Halfling war band.  They have been given a coat of gloss varnish so just waiting a few days for it to harden then on with a matt coat and I can finish off their bases

Lord of the Rings Easterlings

Small Easterling force, plenty more to add to it when I get the time

Eureka Miniatures Tripod

So I purchased a Eureka miniatures tripod to make an Overseer for the All Quiet on the Martian Front game.

As you can see from the pics the kit is massive

I however would not recommend this kit.

I have built plenty of different kist over the years from large lead multipart dragons to Forgeworld titans. This kit may look great in the photos but it has to be the worst designed kit I have ever purchased.

I have to assume that the pictures I have seen of the finished models either had strengthen legs or were made of a different resin.  The legs are much to bendy and thin to take the weight of the hood.  After pinning glueing and trying several different ways including the ways in the instructions getting to stand right is a near impossibility.  If you do get it to stand right there is no way you could move it around the table in a wargame.

The only way I can see of using this kit is to make some legs out of metal tubing and then probably cover them in clay to make them look better.  After spending a week of my spare time trying to get this model to look right I can say I am not inclined to try at the moment so will be going back in it box for the foreseeable future.

ArcWorlde Halflings

Well as I have just filled in my survey for the , ArcWorlde Battle for Troll Bridge Kickstarter, I thought I should at least start to paint some of my miniatures for the first kickstarter.  I decided on the halflings and they have been fun to paint. Still quiet a few left to go yet.
