Might as well drop in a 15mm Sci-Fi slum in here as well, grabbing another part from the bits box and work my way from that.

Plasticcard? Check
Bit from the bits box? Check

And let's rock and roll.

What can I say, I like open themed builds and my mind gets very, very creative. Of course, no idea if I can finish them all in time but we will see.



Also, recycling is fun. The top of a horse trailer I once glued some bits on to try and make something to set next to a 28mm house, but since discarded. A very old Tau drone conversion, and some more bits. have to make a barn, a small garden plot, maybe try and tie in the old Necron scarab somehow?

I like the shape and look of that. Nice choice of bits too.

I have several of those horse trailers. They appear regularly in charity shops and are pretty much spot on for 28mm when used as is. Never thought of taking the roof off and making a building!
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

A little bit of progress, again grabbing from a bag of ancient bits ( the things you find sometimes....)

Wanted to see if I could give it a nice entrance and accidentally ripped it off from the base completely....apparently I had not glued it down as well as I thought. That has now been remidied, after inserting the new door. A Tau something has now become a something next to the door. Is it a air filter, a coffee machine, a letterbox. God knows. This too has a small power generator, just need to fill in the side.

Yeah, getting there.

Very not bad at all.

Dropped it cause my nerve hand issues showed themselves at the worst time possible. Most parts broken off, missing 1 maybe 2 parts. FML.

Thx, crawling over the floor I managed to find 1 missing part so that's something. Apparently this plastic melts with plastic glue but the bond is very weak, so I guess superglue is in order.

Thx Snitchy. Nothing to date (medication or surgery) has made it any better, just more bearable. It's weird when your hands feel numb mosts of the time and sometimes just....drop stuff, always when you are not expecting it, or tired, or both.  It really gets on my nerves (Ha!). At least the rockshell for my phone works :)
