Hydro Bar concept drawing

While building some scrap metal walls for use in all manner of sci-fi and post-apoc games, I got the idea of expanding it. Besides walls I want to make a bunch of scrap shacks and buildings, for an entire wasteland township.

And this idea for a Hydro Bar popped into my brain. Normally I just start building terrain, without a clear plan in mind - and I just go with the flow.

But from building the scrap walls, I know that a plan is needed. Otherwise the scaffolding will get all messed up.

So here's my first ever terrain concept drawing. It's been a long time since I've drawn anything other than killer-robot-dinosaur-tractors (gotta love four year olds). Looking forward to doing this build.

I plan to make a detachable roof, to allow play inside the building. It's also designed for the 3" grid, allowing easy use in Deadzone.

Next up: Come up with a plan for a Wasteland Emporium. That would already make this a complete trade station.

Prophet on palanquin

While rummaging around for vases and bits and bobs to send off for casting, I stumbled across an old work in progress piece.

It is intended to be a prophet carried on a tiny platform by two crab-walking bearers. They are muscular and sorcerously and alchemically enlarged by brawn and girth to better carry their master around.

The bearers' hands are locked into tight iron boxes, yet to be finalized. It is on a 25mm base due to size and also because it is for a friend's WoC/DoC army, to be used as a sorceror. It's been on hold for years as more serious sculpting matters cropped up, mainly courtesy of Bloodbeard who got me into sculpting for casting.

Deathspitter Blunderbusses

Deathspitter Blunderbusses of Ancient Times

These neat figures were sculpted by Jon Horsleben back in 2013, intended for casting. I was one of those on Warseer who waited to see them cast, and told the sculptor I'd purchase a lot, to which he replied he would make me make good on my word. Then healthy family life got in the way for this Danish sculptor, and radio silence descended.

A while ago, Bloodbeard saw Jon offering these sculpts along with some unfinished ones for sale, and gave me a tip about this opportunity. Having purchased the sculpts from mister Horsleben, I proceeded to carve out a shallow indentation into the blunderbuss mouths to avoid flat bongo drum syndrome. Better give a hint of depth, if ever so slight. Other quick realism details included sidearms for everyone (Jon had already equipped one with an axe, neat!) more rivets and armour straps. Shortly these are off to casting, and will be the first rank and file miniatures in the range.

Evil Dwarf Admiral WIP

Lots of grown up work to do, I've gotten very little sculpting done. But I do have a small progress on the Chaos Dwarf Admiral to share.

The model is starting to take shape.
