Large Rust Shack

This is the Rust Large Shack and the last piece that I ordered from Impudent Mortal so far. 

As you can see its pretty big compared to the other pieces, and raised off the ground to save you from creepy crawlies and boo-gens that lurk on the surface.

The stairs are not attached so can be placed as needed or removed all together for ladder only access.

Now friends you may recall I mentioned something about patience and focus. Well focus deserted my this morning and I put the floor transfers on the bottom of the floor rather than the top.

This is where patience came into its own as now I had to build what is essentially a mirror image of the house itself. Had I no prior experience with paper and MDF modelling it would not have been pretty.

Still the building is mostly symmetrical so it turned out all right in the end. It is a wasteland building anyways.

I'm happy with it and if you have an interest in having a go one one by all means do so.
As always a tip of the hat and thanks for stopping by.

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!
