Here are the last citizens of Sulfer Slag Oasis.

Butcher Bill and Auntie Jill are outcasts from their previous community for their slight mutations. Bill is actually the community butcher and his unusual demeanor and dangerous moniker hide a gentle and kind spirit (well, as gentle as one can be in the hive...).



Padre Pio and Clint are the founding members of the community. Some say that he is a religious leader of some forgotten sect who was sent to the hive to atone for some sin. Others say he is a deserter who saw too much of the horrors of war. Whatever he is, he is the undisputed leader of the community who is quick to defend the members of his little flock with tactics and skills that rival even the constabulary.


Here is a shot of the entire community.  I'm looking for more miniatures that may be a good fit to add to the collection. Any suggestions?

Very nice. The miniature painting is great. And I love those terrain pieces.

The terrain bug has bitten me again (and my semester is winding down so I have a bit of free time).

The start of the project...


Orky McOrkface wandering around the construction site to give a sense of scale (and to watch Netflix on my ipad).


Phase one is complete!  I hope to do a bit more this Saturday.

Interesting ideas. Always nice to see what others make,
especially as I now am the proud owner of a copy of
Galactic Heroes. Will therefore be making some  scenery myself.

Phase 2: Bridges/Walkways.

I found this new (to me) stuff called PVC rigid foam of PVC foam board at a local shop. It's 3mm thick and is easy to cut.  If anyone has any tips on working with this stuff (gluing, painting, etc.) please feel free to share your experiences.

Anyway, on with the show: PVC foam board, granny grating, and paper templates to start.



A lot of cutting later... 5 short bridges are starting to take shape and two long bridges are in the works.

Those cooling towers / vents are very clever and look good too. Great way to get some dense terrain onto the table top.
