    I used to sell barbed wire sections like these:

    But they were a bit of a pain to make.
    However with resin casting they would be a lot easier to do and I am wondering if it is the kind of thing people would buy?

    They would be unpainted/unassembled at about 50p to 75p each. (would need to double check prices)

    Thoughts?

    Some rules allow the purchase of these things but have their size defined, I think FWC/CWC/etc stipulates they need to be 50mm?

    It comes as a resin base with pre-drilled holes, 3 poles and a coiled section of razor wire:

    This should be ready around about the 17th ish…

    Living on a new colony world can be tough, sometimes the wildlife tries to eat you, sometimes the people try to rob you, and occasionally some of the people people try to eat you once they’ve robbed you.

    If you don’t fancy putting a nice safe distance between you and the ground where the trouble lives:

    Maybe some good old fashioned razor wire is more your style:

    Repulsorlift tech is now firmly established on Kometenmelodie with easyTrain moving in and offering a trial passenger service.

    It will run along the Liao River Valley and will connect Anvil gate in the west to Mariposa in the East.
    If this proves to be profitable, easyTrain will roll out freight services as well as more advanced passenger services in the near future.

    Cool!

    I guess I’ll be placing my next order then.

    The wife is never going to let me live this one down.

    I drive trains for a living and now I’ll be playing with them at home

    Thank you Stroezie!

    I am making “Tycho Station” for my Repulsorlift Train:

    I will be doing a Ghost of Mars style scenario with the baddies being The Stricken…

    Done a bit of painting and added some bins.
    I have a little hex area near the station, this will have vending machines on it…

    That looks the bomb with some paint on it!

    I’d love to have one for my own table.. I couldn’t convince you to make something like that available?

    Probably not, not given how poor the sales of the actual train have been.
    I am hoping that people seeing it all in action may help the sales of the train, at which point I will bring out more carriages, then if they sell, maybe the station.
    Sorry..

    That’s a shame, I’ll have to build one of my own once I order my train then. I just thought I’d check!

    I would encourage you to make another car. Many people who won’t buy a two car train would if they could make the train as long as they liked. That’s my impression, anyway.

    We get slapped around, but we have a good time!

    I’ve held off for a ‘complete’ train………definitely needs an option to extend by adding carriages and freight cars……….

    Yeah…
    Alas this is where I struggle compared to some (many, most?) other games companies.
    A lot of the ones I know of do it for ‘fun’ and profits made from sales go into expanding the range and ‘treats’.
    My profits go into paying the rent and food and stuff, which leaves me a lot less money to invest in the range, some months it leaves nothing at all.

    When I get some investment cash as I like to think of it, I will get the passenger car designed and printed.
    Then I can bring it out.

    It will happen!
    I want it myself after making the station!

    Now that I am sloooooowly catching up on things, I decided I needed a new generic building, one that was made from local materials but also a military style building.
    Maybe a remote RDF base, maybe a Crimson Alliance outpost, maybe a merc HQ?

    Anyway, here we have it so far:

    Thanks to a small flurry of train sales I can now announce the passenger car is designed and being printed:

    Once a few of those sell then I can get the freight car printed too!

    That’s great news, way to go AB.
    I like the passenger car,but I really want that freight car.
    That being said they are both on my to buy list.

    The printed passenger car is at AB HQ!

    This once normal civilian dwelling has been armed and armoured by someone.
    But who and for what reason?

    Is it a merc base, an RDF FOB, maybe a Crimson Alliance staging post?
    Could it be something else?

    You decide!

    So…..
    The passenger carriage is available and has been shipped to those that pre-ordered it.
    The freight car is in the mould!

    Looking good! Who are the Crimson Alliance, by the way? Any minis forthcoming for them, or are they more of an insurgency?

     

    I’m intrigued…

    Who are the Crimson Alliance, by the way?

    AB is recovering from a Razorhound bite, but he says the Crimson Alliance is the name that the Junker Insurgents call themselves.
    Seems they did not like being called the Junker Insurgents, they wanted something a bit less, well, less crappy sounding.

    So AB says anyway…

    Ah. That makes sense. I always knew the Junkers were drama queens.

    I have knocked up a hasty blu-tac sculpt of the basic variant ONE of the skimmer.
    This is essentially a very lightweight super fast skimmer, it has a cab and a row of seats and a gun.
    It’s role is to get RDF troopers into the fray pronto.

    The RDF have been having some issues with the Junker Insurgents and their amphibious Bullfrog trucks so, need something that can cross the Liao River.
    Basic version:

    You can also take out the seats by releasing a few clasps, these clasps can then be re-used to hold pallets in place, maybe supplies like ammo or fuel:

    Hmm. Where are the engines on that thing, AB?

    In your sci-fi verse, wherever you want them to be! Hand held fusion generators are a wonderful thing.
    Or the skirts, could be in the skirts.
