From the Shed: Afghan hill village.

I’ve been rather busy of late and have got a backlog of completed items to photograph and blog about. Painting for 20 mins a day is working out well and is getting quite a bit done so I am working through things. The 3D printer is out of commission at the moment sadly as it all need recalibrating (if that doesn’t work something more drastic may be required) but I’ve plenty to paint that I’ve already printed.

The basic building came from a thingiverse file here and was shrunk down to roughly fit in with my 6mm scale stuff. I made up a base with an old CD, the basic hill was made with scraps of foamcard and them a couple of plaster rock castings were added in, the whole lot was blended in with celluclay and then painted. The final touch was to add some grit for extra texture.

It should make for a nice objective in my 6mm Afghan games, I’m thinking it would be ideal for heliborne troops to assault.

  1. Really nice, Pete! ๐Ÿ™‚ Get those Hinds and Hips ready for action!

  2. Wow, thatโ€™s formidable detail for 6mm. Love the old CD base too, but really amazing paint and detail work Pete!

    I like what you’ve done with those Pete, very creative. Are there many stl files of Afghan houses available? Just got a printer myself and I might give some a try.

  4. Very nice, as mark said a surprising amount of detail for 6mm, and at last Adele CD’s can be used for something useful!

    Cheers Roger.

    Nicely composed, Pete.

    Regards, Chris.

  6. That’s so cool, going to have to have a go at something similar ๐Ÿ˜€
