Jeez, when I see the prices that some of the old metal Confrontation minis go for on eBay I feel sort of dumb for selling mosta mine for as cheap as I did! :( Thank god I still have all of my old Kelt Sessairs (which I am using for Fanticide if Luke and I ever play the damn game again) and a bunch of others!
In other news, I’m not totally slacking off - working on a new building, of which the ground floor was nearly finished and painted before I realised that I hadn’t added any bloody stairs to the inside. ¬_¬
Pics of the downstairs to follow later tonight, I reckon!
I’ve been working on something for a while, and after several weeks of hard graft, it’s done! And so without further ado, have some photos!
So here it is - a new house for use in many wargames. Mostly Warmachine and Malifaux etc. When I started planning this building, I decided that I’d like it to be something like a shop rather than a house, the kind you’d see where they have a door on the top floor with a winch above it for pulling goods up from the street below (we actually have a house like this around the corner from us). So the bottom floor would be the shop/office, the first floor would be the warehouse or storage area, and then I thought it would be cool to have the loft space designated as the owner’s private rooms (bedrooms or such) with a little balcony to watch the goings on of the town.
The whole thing is made from a lot of foamcore and card from cereal boxes etc. Bottom floor is double-thickness to add some rigidity, due to the fact that I cut off the outer layer of foamcore card to sculpt the stones. Most of the ‘plaster’ of the building is done with lightweight filler. The roof was a pain - all little squares of card glued on with PVA (white glue) - and took three days to complete.
In order to show what kind of building it is, I also built several little furniture pieces to go in there. A desk and chair, and also a bookcase/shelf unit that the boss keeps all of his business accounts on. These were made from lolly sticks and matchsticks, as are the external stairs which I’m really proud of! The final details were a winch (made using instructions found here), and a couple of boxes (from here).
And there we have it! I think a nice little terrain piece that’s detailed enough to be interesting, but not so full of stuff to be a pain for gaming over. Hope you all like it!
