Yet more comes from the shed, this time for my 20mm/ 1/72nd collections.
Bill gave a plastic shed that he didn’t want- he had bought it as a partof a job lot of second- hand railway bits. I quick coat of paint and a bit of weathering resulted in this:
I think it turned out quite nicely, will be nice tucked into the edge of a field in a rural setting or possibly at the end of a garden.
The telegraph poles were designed and laser cut by friend, based on a picture from a book on the fighting in Sicily in WW2. Not the most exciting of items but they’ll look good lining a road.
I picked up these bits of terrain from the Leven Miniatures clicky stand at the Fiasco show last year and have just got round to getting them painted.
A nice collection of storage tanks to add to and industrial area.
This is sold as the police station but to my eye it should work as any office block really. I kept the paint scheme neutral for that reason.
The TV station. The bit with the antenna coming out of it is removable, which adds flexibility to the piece.
I picked up two packs of Portacabins as I figured they’d be useful at add to other bits. I painted up this pair to see what they were like.
This pair of oil ‘nodding donkey’ pumps were from Perfect 6 miniatures clicky (sold through Leven at shows).
All of the pieces were very well cast in resin with a nice level of detail and a pleasure to paint up. They should be good for my 20th century 6mm set ups.
I’ve just finished up these figures from AB (now sold by Euerka in Australia and available in the UK from Fighting 15s).
They are wonderful sculpts; lots of character has been put into the faces. They were fast painted with my usual Vallejo acrylic paints.
I’m not a big collector of WW2 Brits as both Evan and Bill have extensive collections, still it is nice to have a few about here and there.
There is a Bren, a 3″ and a 2″ mortar as well as lots of SMGs. It should add to my modest collection well.
I started a thread about shed or other forms of man cave on a forum (The Guild), as such I took some pics of mine. I thought I’d share them with you readers too, especially as I often show what comes from it.
The outside, yes my little yard is messy….
A general view.
The work surface- painting some modern Brits and Falklands buildings at the moment.
Scenery- organized by type.
AFVs get stored in box files whilst figures end up in all manner of trays.
Funnily enough when I took the pictures I was struck by how messy it was. I guess I don’t notice it when I pop in myself. My storage system isn’t that great to be honest but as I only really game in my front room it doesn’t have that far to go….
