Machinehall in action

Now I have a range of three industrial
buildings and I decided to put them all
together with some figures on display.
A nice view indeed and I am really
looking forward testing them on the
gaming table.


Machinehall finished

Now the turn has come to announce that
my model called "Machinehall" is finally
finished. Looking at my first sketch and
the final result I think that the apple
doesn´t fall far from the tree.
When I started building this model I
wanted to complete my range of industrial
buildings and I feel quite pleased.
Only missing thing is a walkway
that will combine the upper compartment
with another building. Next industrial
building is already under construction and
it will be a a storage for liquids with tanks
and with a several storage high center-piece. 


Scratchbuilt machine for my machinehall

Finally both my machinehall and the interior
is now finished and ready for some gaming.
It has taken some time but the result was
worth waiting for.
I feel that I have managed to get a worn and
oily look on this piece and that was the
goal. When I started making the scenery I
found out that I needed some kind of detail
that would make it all come alive and the
machine was a good choice.
In the background you also see my finished
machinehall but this will be more information
about in the next report. :)


Tankrider and more scenery

When I bought a bucket of tin and leftovers from figures
I also found some usable items and one of these is my

now painted tankrider to WH 40k.
I like this figure and I will use it as a sniper to my Cadian
force(imperial guard). The pictures are shot in my soon
readypainted machine-hall/factory and it feels real good
and the feeling I get is worn down and dirty. :)

I have also visited my local second hand store and bought
some new finds. I bought a big hanging-bridge and a 
stone-paved road for only 2 Euros and eventhough I need
to make some new "ground-planks" I think this is a real
bargain. The bridge will be spot on in my pirate-skirmish-
Finally I have bought some new cars to Fallout-skirmish and
the best thing is that they are all made of plastic and this is
a good thing when it comes to conversions.
The small cars will be fitted with heavy guns and also
shields and other good stuff.


A barn ready to go

This week I dropped by my local second hand market
and I found a small building in wood to use as a barn
in the scale of 28mm. The details are o.k but I will 
repaint it to look better. I already have some other buildings
for storage of seed/wheat and also a windmill but
they all need some lick of paint.

I will primarily use these buildings as scenery in medieval 
and pirate-skirmish settings.
The price for this darkbrown-barn was only 1.4 Euros and

that was not expensive in my opinion.
Have a nice weekend to all you creative readers.


Second hand finds at the local club

Last weekend it was flee-market at the local gaming club
and I was there together with my friend Olle.
It was not as much participators as last time but
eventhough this fact there were a lot of eager gamers.
My budget was quite fair and I got a lot for my
spent money. I paid 40 Euros for all the items at the
pictures. I bought a bucket of tin to make new cannons
and at first I planned to melt it all but found som gems
in the leftovers and decided to save them for my projects.
Especially a evil Chaos-priest was nice and some markers
to show fallen fighters. Other finds were two german
soldiers, a barrel to my pirate-skirmish and two
riders (one for WH 40k and one for Fallout skirmish).
I also bought some 15mm "Jerrys" together with tanks to be 
able to make my own Berlin 1945-setting for the game
Flames of war.I will paint the tanks in ss-pattern and
the figures in a mixture of ss, volksgrenadiers and
fallschirmjägers(late war).
To my ever growing russian army-collection of 15mm I
found 5 trucks with AA-guns. I will probably exchange the
Opel blitz with a GAZ to make the force more "russian".
Last out are my 5 Kroots from GW to convert to mutants
in Fallout skirmish and the missing arms (bits with 
weapons) to make my Super-mutants complete.
The supermutants will be a nice project and I will also
fit these two figures with containers filled with 
food that hang from their backs in chains.
The skin of these supermutants will be "unhealthy" and
scarred and also fitted with diseases.A new report
showing the finished result on these mutants are soon
to be published
