Building Proxima de la Muerte

Started tentatively working on Sci Fi campaign that's been kicking around in the back of me head for some years now.

The mining colony Proxima de la Muerte has gone quiet.

Too mundane a job for Star Army, a Planetary Defense Force detachment has been dispatched to find out why the Corps are not getting their ore.

On arrival they will find civil unrest, rebellious local authorities, unrestrained gang warfare, madness, and worse.

Naturally such a setting needs some buildings.

Just found out about Impudent Mortal a couple of weeks ago. Along with lots of MDF accessories and building kits they have what they call the Rust range.

These buildings come with transfer sheets that detail the plain wood surfaces.
No painting required, just patience and concentration.

I made the two small shacks easily enough yesterday.

Built the watch tower today, and maybe I should have done so over two days.

Reckon it came out  all right though.

The buildings have removable roofs and detailed interiors as well.

In addition to these three there is a larger shack yet to be built.

On their website you will find other goodies like a crane, container boxes, a repair shop, and such all reminiscent of the settlements in Fall Out (IMO), which is a good thing as they will be useful when Modiphious release their Fall Out skirmish game.

If you decide to try these kits out, do watch the video how to on using transfers before you start.
Their are detailed pdf instructions of each kit, but the video contains some tips and tricks that will save you some bother.

Well that's it for now so thanks for stopping by!


  1. Looks good; I will check them out; [lack of] time is of the essence and any solution that gives good results is welcome.

    1. Not sure if it really saves time of labor, if you are a good painter. However when they are built they re done. It is suggested that you spray with matte varnish but that only requires minimal drying time when compared to painting.

  2. Splendid buildings, love the watch towar...and removable roofs is a nice and useful addition!
