    I used to sell loads of these:

    Improvised barricades and sandbags emplacements.

    But being resin they ended up being too fiddly to cast in vast numbers so I gave up…
    But doing them in metal….

    One thing I’m constantly trying to find is amphorae/ pithoi. From the small domestic versions to the giant pithoi, the size of a grown man in height, used in Bronze Age palace store rooms.

    Useful for scenery in the Middle East and the area covered by the Roman Empire from the Neolithic until the early centuries AD. Until barrels are invented in Gaul in the 4th Century BC they are ubiquitous storage for liquids, oils, grain, etc.

    Perhaps done as clusters/ stacks of domestic sizes and individual larger “palace” sized ones?

    No idea how commercial it would be but worth a mention.

    I think this was discussed in another thread, but non-military vehicles would be good – cars, motorbikes, busses, etc

    How about a well?

    @cmnash – Perfect Six already do a well with a lid and a well with a roof. Very nice they are too.

    This!

    Plus power generators, contol stations, cryo units…

    A set of modular industrial pipelines is also a question that pops up regularly.

    Oh and for fantasy, some dungeon furniture for Pocketquest would always be nice.

    Cheers,

    Stroezie.

    You’ve got some great stuff, especially the vehicle stowage!  (and I do love the moooo cow! cracked me up!)

     

    Sci-fi: as said above, HVAC units, power generators, solar panels, “techie-bits”, moisture collectors, futuristic antennas, information kiosks, vend-o-matics, automated gun turrets…  I do like the ideas of various doors and windows in order to make buildings, but they would have to be awful slim which would make them difficult to caste.

    Modern: bus stop benches and shelters, vending machines, dumpsters, hescos, street lights, traffic lights, gas station pumps, cars, crushed cars, mailboxes (boxy US type and cylindrical UK types), garbage piles/scrap yard rubbish

    pre-modern: market stalls, siege engines, and that’s all I’ve got for that!

    scifi seems to be a trend here, so will defo look into this , vehicles are awrkward they require large investment in 3d drawings prints and cast, and unless large sales are guaranteed, it could set me back alot of money.

    Brilliant!  This is a zone I had looked into at one point, but as my 6mm line is more for mass combat I figure I’ll leave scenics to those with the experience and skill.  Cars, however, I might just do as I already have them in 15mm for sci-fi…

    More vehicle stowage!

    I recently got some barrels and crates from you to load up my trucks, but I could do with cluttering up some of my armour 🙂

    I had never seen your site before. Having just kickstarted my 6mm WW2 project I will for sure be getting your bits and pieces.

    I want to echo the need for techie bits and bobs for sci fi buildings and interiors. Computer outlets, power generators and such.

    Continental telegraph poles/power lines, I’m not sure which they are but they are made of some kind of steel lattice and are asymmetrical, I think to counter the pull from the wires. So one side is vertical, the opposite one tapers towards the top.

    Packs of 20 would be nice

    I’m fumbling around in the dark a bit as I try to describe what I’m wanting to suggest here, but I generally feel that there’s not enough “girder clutter” in miniature wargames scenery. I mean, various kinds of smallish, relatively nondescript girder-and-beam structures for industrial and infrastructural sites in 20th century, modern and sci-fi settings. Believable ones, not Necromunda-style “adventure playgrounds” that don’t seem to serve any practical purpose.

    I wish I had good examples to show you. I like the nodding donkeys you sell and I think it would be cool to have more stuff along those lines to make an industrial sprawl. Maybe they could have some degree of modularity, or be designed to be placed next to other industrial-type scenery pieces like liquid tanks and pipelines.

    Also, maybe some nondescript utilitarian machinery and large tools, like all those unintelligible thingamabobs one tends to see scattered about in construction sites and industrial sites?

    Those round advertising thingies found in continental cities. Advertising columns, they are apparently called.
