Painted Wagon

Not that kind of wagon, beer etc, but the basic one that I slapped some paint on for use tonight with our D&D group.

So there is the encampment site, which Im sure will be swarmed with all sorts of bad guys.... :)

Wagon Ho!

I'm in a D&D game group..again.. and our group has been so mobile and traveling that we were stymied at haveing somewhere to stash gear, food, and other assorted materials. Enter... The Wagon! Of course a wagon in a D&D setting has drawbacks, but, at least its mobile vs The Inn, where things that are left seem to just vanish.

After dealing with ink ovals, bits of paper and what have you to represent it, time to model one up. Wagon wheels are store bought Circus Wheels from the Train Store. Coffee stir sticks to the rescue for everything else! Wagon bed is 3 inches long, and 1.5 inches wide. Some paint to go! Figure to stand horses in place when needed, I would have attached the horses but they seem to be in Every creatures food chain!

River Rolling test

So, rolled up my new small creek / stream. Left it rolled up for a couple of days.
And here it is a few minutes after being unrolled
About half an hour of room temperature and it was very flat. Total thickness of this smaller creek was about half of my fast water river piece, which I suspect makes a difference in how flat it will lie when totaly relaxed from being rolled up.

Few more building sessions in and RRsize has progressed on his partially demolished building.

Work proceeds around christmas shopping and decorating a 1:1 scale tree.

Here is a link that sums up a lot of the pre christmas maddness:


I chuckled through it and thought it worth sharing :)

New Camera

With a sigh our 6 year old digital camera decided it needed to have some repairs on it, Estimate charges for labor and parts $150.00 Enter new camera! Hmmm have to figure out how to take pics...... experiments ensue:

Much higher resolution pictures, and there by, longer to load up for making articles, I guess I'll live with it. Purchased this plastic purple worm, it was prepainted, and broke out the paints to highlight what had been a purple / lavender 2 tone with a smear of silver done each edge.
Then a shot of Skrapwelder who had dropped over to have a cold one with me and discuss current building operations of various resin projects. Lots of projects in the works! Hmm to much time split to many ways means little progress anywhere. On top of it all had to get all the plants in from the Patio due to temp dropping to 24 degrees here in usually sunny Sacramento, CA...
Have to have a shot of one of our Watch Cats on duty. Neitchi is a rare Tinyus Tigerus breed, hair triggered to attack!

Rubbled Buildings Mark 2

Started a new and updated rubble building collection utilizing what I learned from the previous, studying pictures, comparing notes and turning RRsize loose with some mats. He was itching to try his hand after touching up my last rubbled buildings so here's some starter pics of WIP.
