Further lack of idleness!

In addition to not being idle working on gaming videos, I have not been idle in my painting and terrain-making. I have mostly been trying to catch up with my painting backlog, with special focus on things that have sat around unpainted too long. The fine young folks at the Cambridge University Role-playing and Tabletop Society are starting up a Shadow War Armageddon campaign this coming academic year, so I've been putting together some scenery to go with that as well (and to fit into my existing post-apocalyptic collection). Here's what I've done lately:

I decided to put most of my obstacle and barricade terrain in one place!

This is a collection of scatter terrain, objective markers and so on suitable for that campaign. 

These piles of scrap are made from Ramshackle games miscasts and based on scrap cardboard. 

This walkway is made from 3.5" floppy discs and a few other bits.
Now that I'm volunteering at the computer museum, I suspect I'm going to get through a lot of these. 

Lots of new stuff here, most visibly the Poxwalkers from the Dark Imperium boxed set. 

I finished the storage tank I started about four years ago!

This figure is from Oakbound Games' upcoming minis game, Factious Waste. 

As is this bomb-throwing rebel. 

This barbarian was a quick paint job for my Dragon Rampant army. I think he looks pretty good!

Here's a closeup of one of the Poxwalkers. They're speed-painted with washes. 

A shot showing the construction of the walkways from the photo above. 
Anyway, that's what I've done recently that I have good photos of. More to come!


  1. Beautiful terrain, great details!

    1. Thanks! It is a mixture of lots of different manufacturers and quite a lot of junk, so I'm glad it came out well.

    1. Thanks! It's a bit piecemeal but I often struggle to focus on a large project. I just get too excited about other things.

  3. Jesus James! You say your idle, but you sure can pump out quite a lot in this "state" :)

    Cool man.

    1. I just said I *haven't* been idle! Now, the last few weeks I have been -- at least on minis -- but I have a post coming up that should hopefully make up for it.
