A Genius's New Lair! Doktor Von Hades Discrete Retreat!
« on: July 15, 2018, 02:15:08 AM »
January 1877 and Doktor Von Hades was 'feeling the heat' as the forces of good closed in on him! After his aborted LASER deployment he was on the run and Captain Darling was hounding him. He was so harassed by his pursuers that he was finding it difficult to have morning tea on the roof of his Secret Lair or even indulge in a little croquet with his Evil Henchmen on the front lawn! He needed to relocate his Evil Genius's Lair to a new even more secret location post haste...

Doktor Von Hades new hideaway, notice how it blends in with the surrounding dwellings perfectly!


More pictures and information are on the blog...

I love the guard monkey and the discrete sign out the front.  lol

Excellent stuff.
Enjoying the game is ALWAYS more important than winning the game.

It's just a line of innocent, nondescript buildings. What am I looking at?

From the blog: "Unfortunately when I bought this at Little Wars Melbourne I thought it was 1/56 scale for 28mm figures but its actually designed for 32mm ones.."

Oh, yes, the scale was the only thing that made it appear 'odd..'

If anything, it added to the effect! "I say, Chauncey, are they starting one of those hideous American 'amusement parks' here?"

Nice building.

Reminded me a bit of "Despicable Me". The larger "scale" befits his genius (and will allow any larger constructs to not require carpenters to follow them as they enter and leave).

Love it Pete, looks just right.  Was just looking at some of the other "Twisted" buildings.  The entire range looks quite tasty.
