Incursion Progress

July 26, 2009

A few free minutes here and there have allowed me to finish one half of my 3D Incursion board basic floor plan. The weird snakelike stain is actually cement underneath of ‘cracked ice’ clear plastic overhead fluorescent light cover. Once painted, it should have a nice stone floor pattern. (At least that’s the plan.) Other floor texture highlights(other than the foamcore tiles) include the round burner from the same abandoned coffee maker that became Mr. Teleporter (see below), and sandpaper. Next I will spackle the floor tiles, and add styofoam and foamcore walls, complete with assorted computer fans, tubes, and other bits. I’ve also made some painting progress on my zombies.

Painted 6mm buildings.

November 26, 2008

After almost a full year, I have finally painted one of the Old Crow buildings previously mentioned.

Accomodation Block - Painted

I have also painted some older resin buildings from Mayhem, a.k.a. The Drum. This manufacturer has disappeared, and I have had these buildings for at least 5 years. I have heard rumours of a company reproducing this line, but have yet to see anything. This was an excellent line of 6mm sci-fi terrain, and  forms the bulk of my 6mm building collection.

Mayhem Sci-Fi Industrial

I am working on a set of modular city block tiles made from 1sq. ft. grey vinyl bathroom tiles spraypainted with a textured multicolored basecoat. I am laying out the streets, and will add plasticard to form raised sidewalks and plazas.  The buildings will not be glued down, to keep the layout as flexible as possible.  Stay tuned, more photos and progress updates will come.
