Sappers would be a good addition, what's on the horizon re new figures?


Also finished another storage bunker; well half a bunker, as I ran out of the textured plastic stuff.

That is just amazing.

Although the clumsy muppets I usually game with (myself included) would snap off those radio antennas in a matter of minutes.

I like the half-built bunker.  It adds a little something to the whole affair...

Myself included; the wires are glued into a small piece of drilled plastic rod, that fits fairly well into the small pieces of plastic pipe stuck in the roof, so just pulls out.

Cheers Jim, it was the last piece of corrugated plastic card I had, from some I bought probably over a decade ago. Just enough to make that curve and a door for the bunker. The rest is plastic rod and an offcut from the bamboo mat I used for the huts. It still had some of the backing material stuck to it so I thought it a good ides to burn it off with a lighter. Turns out bamboo catches fire fairly easily, especially once painted; ended up melting one of the plastic rods aswell, hence the piece of netting hiding the damage.

Yes, well, your players needn't know how the proverbial sausage is made, only that it is good!  What they don't know won't hurt 'em! :D

I can only applaud the dedication of someone calling in an airstrike to napalm their own position. You are awarded the coveted Modeller of Honour.

Not the first time I've inadvertantly set fire to a model trying to cut corners...

Been on the hunt for a suitable 'Apocalypse Now' type of jungle ruin, finally found something that looked the part on ebay last week.
An aquarium decoration, I assume you're suppossed to bubble air through it.





Filled the holes and glued it to a bit of MDF, added some Sculptamold & grit to the ground, then painted it the same as the previous scatter bits.
Tried to hide the worst of the casting marks with some ivy, then the usual selection of plastic plants and static grass tufts.

That looks the part, really looks like something that a patrol could stumble across, lost in the J for hundreds of years.
