While all may be 'Quiet on the Blogging Front' in the background there is a hive of activity and terrain building. Unfortunately very little is being finished at the moment because I am awaiting a load of 1:300 trees from an eBay supplier in China. I reckon they are arriving by row boat because the delivery estimate is somewhere around the end of the month and I ordered these several weeks ago! Mind you at just £2.76 for 50 trees I can hardly complain. In the meantime I have been working on a load of figure prep and some other minor projects such as this item of impassable terrain...The Rock.
It is designed for the 3" squares on my home-made TtS! game mat and is made almost exclusively from items supplied or found by the Young Padawan. She picked up the rock at the weekend and it was clear from its shape (with a nice flat bottom) that it was destined for the games table; the flock and yellow flower/bushes she discovered in a bargain bin at Salute; and the base is made from an off-cut of MDF found while rummaging through my bits box.
Hopefully a few other projects will come to fruition in the next few days but I have a busy week and a busy weekend ahead so in all likelihood nothing will get done. Such is life!
The base looks excellent.ReplyDelete
Good stuff. I see you are training your daughter to see everything from a 'how can I use that on the wargames table'? point of view. It's amazing how much stuff literally just lying around can be used in a variety of ways.ReplyDelete
Its how I survive shopping trips with the wife. No matter what shops I get dragged through I'm always on the lookout for anything that can be used on the games table. I rarely actually buy anything, but its the sort of distraction that turns a tedious shopping trip into a hobby related supply run (in my head at least).Delete
I always take my kindle if I go shopping with the wife. That way she can clothes shop as much as she likes while I find a convenient pillar to lean against and read.Delete
Simples! Very nice.ReplyDelete
