Well I trust everyone had an enjoyable festive break and are looking forward to the New Year. As you all know I have decided to downsize due to a lack of space, so I have set myself a new maximum size for the time being. The new size is 250mm by 140mm for the larger ones and 140mm by 115mm for the small ones. These smaller ones are going to have some nice little derelict buildings from Jarvis battle zone, while for the larger ones I will be building them from scratch.
The desert scene one I made for one of my daughters for a Xmas present, fortunately she liked it!! The figures are mainly the Dark Alliance Nomads set with a few odd ones thrown in; I think the donkeys are from Linear-B.
For the other I have used my newly acquired Rat Men from Caesar, they are pretty good in my opinion with a nice variety of poses. The terrain is just made from foam board and Plaster of Paris and the rat holes are made out of cardboard tubes that I removed when all was set. I then threw in the Dark Alliance Southern Kingdom Warriors, some wire trees and a section of vine from Citadel that I found in the Warhammer shop in Bendigo that our own Guru Pig pointed out to me. I had a great time talking to the owner (another ‘Dave’) and learnt quite a bit about painting. Cheers Dave, I hope to be back for that painting lesson!
Well that’s all for the moment, so keep well and I’ll be back in the New Year.
