Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere.....

So re purposing is the name of the game today as I made a batch of terrain repurposed from various sources.

First up are two churches that I found at Walmart after Christmas for 50 cents each.  Paint job later I think they are perfect.

Originally they were this sparkly gold color with a big ring in the top.  I primed them with Krylon khaki ultra flat then painted and washed the roofs.

The texture was actually perfect for a stucco style material and it took the paint and flock very well.

These pieces were in the spring garden section at hobby lobby I spent $30 on the pieces and I think they came out great.  I am going to use them as a dark age stone circle a la Stonehenge.  They were pre-painted perfectly so all I needed was to appropriately base them.

The larger of the standing stones.

Some small blocks

The smaller standing stones.

This was a stone alter of some kind.  

All in all I was happy as it was little effort to get this stuff up to gaming standards.

For Your Consideration. Helping out a little Girl in Need.

Our daughter has been approved for a Service Dog to help with her Aspergers Syndrome.  So we are fundraising for the non profit that will be providing the dog and any help people can lend is greatly appreciated as we have to raise quite a bit of money to help offset the costs.  The doctors tell us that the dog will greatly increase her quality of life and help by providing both physical and emotional support.

Thank you all for your support.

Her Halloween Costume, Gizmo!!

Full moon calls thee-- Shai-hulud shall thou see......

So I am coming to a finish with my 15mm Aliens.  I need to add in a few more large beasts and some walkers for the robot faction but I really am happy with the progress including the Giant Shai-Hulud models.  I also have a few more squads of foot trooper aliens, but with the robotic legions I think I have plenty of foot troops.  The idea behind the army is it is a bunch of different races and technology levels that live on a distant planet that humans have landed on and they have decided to defend their homeworld.  I will be using them with Fireteam Andromeda, Gruntz, and Future War commander rules.

My camera / lighting system was acting up so the pictures are not as good as they could be but enjoy!

The giant yeti beasts.  I really liked how these came out in different color coats. These are form the West Wind Range.

Mud/Lava men.  I have no idea who makes them but they look cool.

Twanax baddies from Blue Moon.

A Brood Hound from Dark Age Miniatures. 

Nevis from Blue moon Manufacturing.  These are the bulk alien troops.

Robot Velon Skirmishers from Blue Moon.  I think they are dead ringers for Falling skies Mechs.
