Burrows and Badgers: Fagin Mactavity and his gang of thieves

Introducing Fagin Mactavity, a notorious wild cat ne'r-do-well and rogue who, with the help of his ferret enforcer, Savage Gill, runs a gang of mice thieves. The mice serve Mactavity out of a mix of fear and awe, heading out each night on their criminal missions, returning each morning to hand over their ill gotten gains to their boss. Those who fail to bring back enough loot will answer to Savage Gill.

Gaslands Barricades

 I have been making some scenery for Gaslands. Its basically 20mm scale, because that seems to work best with die-cast cars like Hot Wheels, which is the most common bases for Gaslands vehicles. 

I really like Gaslands but I don't know anyone who will play it so these concrete barricades will be sold by Hazardous Terrain. 

I hope you like them.

Burrows and Badgers: A Mouse House

When Burrows and Badgers Skirmish game first came out as a Kick Starter I was a bit intrigued but basically thought the figures were nice but it wasn't for me. Then I saw the figures that Simon (AKA Brummie) was painting and they were SO nice I thought I would give it another look. On closer inspection I fell in love with the little cute anthropomorphic animals and decided to go all in. 

I thought I would make some terrain, as no one else makes stuff that even remotely fits the world of Burrows and Badgers (well at least how I see it). Originally I thought I might sell it on the Hazardous Terrain page, but now I have decided I want to keep it, and even make some more. 

In my imagination I see the world of Burrows and Badgers as comprising of windswept moors, craggy rocks and cute villages that look like something produced by a cross of Tokien's Shire and the Wind in the Willows, with a healthy dose of Redwall thrown in. After extensive research (on Pinterest) looking at cute cottages, fairy houses and so on, I was ready to give it a go. 

This is what I came up with, a house for a mouse- part cottage and part burrow, with a very cute cottage garden.  I hope you like it and can 'get' what I was going for. Style wise it is clear fantasy but nothing like my usual terrain. I was certainly a lot of fun to build and I learned a lot from making it. 

 And this is Manfri Shadowpaws, a mouse rogue, and the first of my band of thieves, rogues and cut-purses for B&B. These figures are lovely to paint and I will certainly be doing more!

More Buildings for Sale...

Here is the results of this weeks terrain making sessions. Following the feed back from the last post I thought I would try making a jungle ruin for Ghost Archipelago. Thanks for the suggestions JP. It was an interesting build as I made bricks and built it one at a time using a glue gun. I think it has a nice ramshackle look. The building is only small but I thought I would use it to test the market. 

Next up are three modern Afghan adobe buildings, They will also be useful for a whole range of periods and locations. The Spanish building I made last week has picked up a lot of watchers, so I thought I would test the waters with these three, they were quick and fun to build and if they sell well I will certainty make some more. 

And finally here are two post apocalyptic scifi buildings made for 40K or Necromunda, bu usable for all sorts of settings.  

Again here is a LINK to the ebay sale. 

Post bellow if you have any other ideas on what will sell well...

A New Direction for My Hobby

I have decided that, as I don't get so much time for gaming, and buying figures is expensive, I am going to concentrate on making terrain and buildings. This is a part of the hobby I really enjoy, and once you have bought all the bits it works out much less expensive that painting figures. As I don't game that much I don't need masses of terrain, so I will be selling most of it directly on ebay. I think that I am half descent at making terrain an buildings, and I am hoping that this will make my hobby 'cost neutral' at the very least (Although I doubt I will be able to give up the day job). 
If I get around to it I might even post some tutorials on youtube, but that is something for the future. 

Here are some photos of the terrain I have made for sale this week. I have made some Mordeim terrain (I know the game is out of fashion but I am hoping someone might want it). I also made some 28mm Spanish buildings and a 15mm adobe building. 

If you want to have a look at how the sale is going (or even bid on them) here is a link... EBAY

I am also open to ideas and suggestions. If you have any ideas of what sort of buildings you would like to see me tackle (especially if they might have a general commercial appeal), then feel free to comment.

Belated Photos from Salute 2018

I have no excuse as to my tardiness with this post (well no excuse that will justify how long it has taken). Here is a bit of a photodump of what I thought were the best looking or most interesting tables. As there is so much to see and do at Salute I didn't get chance to chat to every table owner, but when I did, and if I could remember any of the details then I have included them. 

Gang Warfare in Wild in the Streets game- Now a Kickstarter.

More gang action with Funky Skulls Street Wars

Not sure...but that is a big boat!

I think this was Crooked Dice's Post Apocalypse table- Very nice!

Not sure. Looks a bit like Skyrim though. 

Some Pirate Action!

Perhaps the best looking game of the day if you ask me. Not sure who made it. 
Loved this Star Wars board!

I loved this board. The mat was a big sheet of hessian and lots of scatter...simple but very effective. 

A 28mm Zombie attack in a wargaming convention. check out those miniature tables!

A nice Sharp Practice Peninsular war table

Shameless Plug for Pre-Salute Ebay Sell Off!

Please excuse the shameless self promotion, but I have plopped a load of figures and scenery of ebay ahead of Salute 2018, hoping to raise some much needed shopping money. Items include a VSF tunneling engine, some Napoleonic zombie apocalypse survivors, a whole 15mm Sharps Practice AWI army, and some war hammer scenery. I will probably add more stuff this week too. 

Sorry for plugging my sale, but if you are interested here is a link. Ebay!
