Inspiring stuff! Buzz and Woody I can take or leave but the downed drone and the car are awesome!
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Fantastic work on the car, 8 year old me would have committed terrorism for something half as cool.

How do you take the car apart  without breaking the bottom plastic half?

It was held together with three screws, so, was easy to disassemble.
The surplus to requirement bits all went into the stock of 'really interesting gubbins'.

Thanks Ian.

Today I have used up three cast Lord of the Rings figures.
They have been sitting on the Shelves of Shame for a long time.
Originally from a Chess set I believe.
Now repurposed as giant statues, one 'Good' one 'Bad' & one fallen (Ugly ?).

Thanks Syrinx0.
The backgrounds are (very) old Sci-Fi Posters that I found last year in the
(never ending) tidy up.

also found an odd Sci-Fi Alien, so painted him up.

At a recent Diecast toy fair I picked up (along with a lot of other bits)
some key-rings with space-ships. Only a pound each!

Took the space-ships off the key-rings, gave them a dark wash, then a dry-brush.
Stuck them onto some spare flight bases & here they are.

Those LOTR statues worked great and the key ring ships were a great find.

Guys, if you get a chance, head over to the link below, see the entries & vote.
Hopefully for my entry, or failing that the good ones. lol

& today I have another base for my Tudors.
Vodkafan gave me some cannons (the type you get in castle giftshops).
The barrel, wheels & front half of the carriage are all lovely, but the back
end... :o Plus the wheels are wobbly & the cast lines ugly. I put these right
then added two spare Hinchcliffe Landsknechts as German mercenary crew.
Hope you like it.

Picked up two AFVs off Ebay. One I wanted, the other...not.
Not wanted was a pull-back friction Pz IV.
I took it apart, removed the gubbins, reassembled it then gave it a tart up.
Now ready to go back on Ebay.

That tarted up nicely.
