It's all great coming out of the mancave this week...you must be severely short of junk bits by now?
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

AS you will be aware that dogs chew things, especially items I would rather they didn't
but that I had left...accessible. :-[

Such a fate happened to two 3d printed figures.
Too expensive to just throw away, what to do?  :?

Here is what I did, fallen statues.

I too have had canine assistance with some of my modelling. Often requiring disposal, sometimes identification is impossible, but every once in a while it is serendipitous, as with these statues. I think they're great, but Alfie and Cooper say they're "Ruff"... lol

I asked my dog, 'What can I use them for?'
He said, 'Nothing'   :D

On a whim I purchased some 3d printed market stalls.
Usable for present to near future, even outer rim type sci-fi.
I added some clutter & painted them up.

Excellent, really works as a theme and hangs together well
I thought I could see the light at the end of the tunnel … but it was just some sod with a torch bringing me more work!

Those market stalls fit the bill.  Very nicely done.

Thanks Snitcy.  I hope to get some use out of them, both in Galactic Heroes & Wild Boys.

What would be useful in a Galactic Heroes game?
The equivalent of flying jeeps (Veeps?)
How to make them? (I'm too mean to buy.  :D)

Well...in the 'Interesting bits' pile (well mountain really.  ;D) were two broken garden lights.
First thing was to take them apart. The interior gubbins went back into the 'interesting' pile.
Then just paint them. :D

For those who liked the crashed satellite, come on! Someone must have liked it. ;D
this is what happened to the bottom bits from Thunderbird One.

I took the three parts & married them to surplus Sci-Fi weapons.
