The next installment of angry dudes….
I am a nomad; I travel around to many different gaming fora, groups and sites. Each has its own focus, it’s own culture. Some I like more than others, but in order to engage with other enthusiasts about my varying interests, that’s the way it has to be.
I like TWW. It’s new, it’s got a nice atmosphere. I can see it growing if people keep contributing to it and Mike stays committed to keeping it around. It’s one of the reasons why I continue to post about my junk mostly here.
I don’t think there’s going to be any one place where “the community” goes, any more. There’s just so much out there, pick a handful of places you like and keep contributing.
You make me want to smash my laptop…
Miniatures – I love collecting, building and painting them from across many periods. Lately, we’ve been having a good time with Star Wars Armada as the goto game in my house (the first miniatures game my wife has been willing to play more than once). My regular club has been doing a lot of WWII using Battleground, not my preferred set.
Boardgames – I love modern board games and have a lot of fun playing them. It is easier to get friends to play board games, even non-gamers will participate in many. My current favorites are Agricola, War of the Ring, Puerto Rico, Chaos in the Old World, Eclipse.
Two mafia/corporate types.
I find it interesting how certain things just grab hold of us.
Two more models. Didn’t bother to write anything, so the link isn’t going to give you anything more than the pictures I’m posting here…
Just some craters.

These types of comparisons are always useful. Thanks for sharing.
It has been a while since I have checked out a Slammers aar. Always inspiring.
I’ve probably told you this before, but these feel like they could fit into the Hammer’s Slammers universe.
The painting really sets the tone.
Thanks, I might try that out.

Not everything works out.
Never look them in the eyes.
There aren’t many settings that two sinister interrogators can’t fit in. The bad guys from Firefly are so iconic that I wanted to do an homage, of sorts
The best water ‘mat’ I have ever played on was a crumpled up blue tarp. It looked like wavey water.
Cheap space mat. Glittery felt!
That’s a good question. I hadn’t thought of it in those terms, but I definitely view them (or just about any terrain kit, really) as a frame work to build upon rather than a finished product. It’s not that these need work, but that I view them as a start, rather than a finish.
With these buildings I see them mostly as a way to cut out all the hard work and get to the good stuff. It’s not that I can’t cut these structures out on my own in a material like foam board, but that is time consuming and prone to mistakes. It scratches a creative itch while catering to my natural laziness and avoiding my otherwise unavoidable clumsiness. The lack of suitable frame works to build off of is the main reason I haven’t begun tackling Judge Dredd terrain.
There are some kits out there that I am not sure that I would touch. Blotz has some buildings in this scale with engraved and layered detail that I am very interested in checking out.
It helps that I like this scale and have a passion for the subject matter. I want to ultimately end up with a city board that provides a functional game space while also having a little bit of ‘wow factor’.
Thanks for your thought provoking question and for following my work so far.
I like your own work on buildings. I haven’t bought any from you yet, but they amaze me with your ability to take everyday items and turn them into believable terrain.
The beat goes on…
Thanks. I also collect 6mm.
Thanks, guys. I appreciate the encouraging comments.
I enjoy doing this kind of stuff and sharing! The journey is the destination… 🙂
A couple of more acrylic houses, painted half-heartedly.
Who makes them?
Hi, Mike. I haven’t seen this particular vehicle in the comics, yet. But I am still pretty new to JD and the variety of vehicles is quite… varied.
I don’t have many buildings and I am not really happy with the ones I have. They may work for undercity or older sections of the city.
I am in the ‘thinking of’ stage in considering what is out there that can fit and what I can do to make my own terrain.
Scratchbuilding looks like the best and most fun option, but also the slowest.
A new year, a new post.
Warlord has the main rules as a free download now and a buy one, get one free sale on the boxed sets going on.05/12/2015 at 15:47 in reply to: A long time ago on a Blog far, far away – Star Wars – 6mm Project #35279
X-Wing is supposed to be 1/270 scale which makes it nice for 6mm. Some nice ships there for even non-Star Wars fans that like sci-fi in this scale.
My experience with mdf buildings is limited to 6mm. I find them easy to assemble (white or wood glue), easy to paint and the joins can be filled or covered.
Curently working on 6mm Robotech and 28mm Judge Dredd.
I also have 6mm Punic Wars as well as 6mm Starship Troopers that get some attention every once in a while.
Added a new building to the collection.
Good looking models!
That’s always the main concern, to balance functionality with aesthetics.
