    After all my whinging about ennui and lack of motivation, I have suddenly discovered my mojo once more: it was down the back of the sofa. I should have looked there first because lost things are always down the back of the sofa. Anyway, I’ve been merrily colouring in my 15mm Mad Mecha Guy buildings and got around to laying the first of them out on a Dave Graffam mat. I still need to edge the tiles and that shows in the photo, but I’ll get there.

    My sci-fi faction is a darkly humorous, post-colonial take on an African republic that harks back to its glory days as an English colony with tea and cricket for everyone, so the fantasy mat with the cobbled streets seems somehow appropriate to the theme. Here’s a few pics. You can view larger versions and read my witterings on my blog.

    Walkways between buildings and roof gardens. Do like.

    I really like it!  An especially like the grass on the roofs, that is a great touch and a very sci-fi aesthetic.

    Nice. Like everyone else I really like the rooftop gardens.
    I also like the theme. African post-colonial sci fi. Thats cool. I wonder if there are any robot cricket players available anywhere.

    Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

    Thanks, guys. I’m pleased you like it. The green roofs are one of my favourite parts of the builds. They speak to the green credentials of the Bwendi nation, as opposed to the polluted industrial ruin that is Albion. I really need to add solar-heated water tanks to the roofs, and have some solar panels from Blotz that I need to build and add to the set-up.

    Paul, if you find any robo-cricketers, please let me know. I would love to model a cricket pitch for Bwendi and Albion to fight over, and the robo-cricketers could add a lovely random element as the batsbots score a 6 with passing grenades. They might also make for a great close assault squad in their own right.

    You really should, and then you should post pictures to keep me enthused about finishing mine! 🙂

    I’ve missed those Mad Mecha Guy buildings. I’ll have to take a look.

    The only 15mm cricketers/krikkiters (robot or otherwise http://hitchhikers.wikia.com/wiki/Krikkit ) I know of are in the Peter Pig WWI ‘British Sportsmen” pack – and only 1. There are some in 20mm/1/76 though, in the 000 Langley Models model railway range.

    They look really good Ruarigh and remind me that I have a pile of unmade MMG buildings as well …

    How did you make the giant mushrooms?

    @cmnash: The mushrooms were given to me by a friend. I suspect they were from a cheap craft store. They are polystyrene and came decorated.

    @etranger: Sadly the Peter Pig cricketer does not fit my vision. Alternative Armies have a sentry robot in their HOF range that might suit conversion into a Krikkiter though.

    I really like all the little touches like the billboards.

    The billboards were one of the really fun bits. I spent ages trying to find artwork I liked that I could add text to, although the Persona Synthetics billboard is just a straight printout of art from the Persona Synthetics website.

    I have also sourced a lot of posters from https://scarfolk.blogspot.co.uk/ because they give a proper feel for life in Bwendi. I just need to start adding them as flyposted bills to walls around town. Perhaps I should see if any of my figures would be suitable as bill posters. It would make a nice little diorama in the middle of a battle between the Peace Force and some random criminals.
