How to do realistic random damage to your terrain &/or models

Hello again all,
How to do realistic random damage to your terrain &/or models
This is just a joke & I couldn't not share but the look on that dog's face is priceless.( wicked some might say 😁😁😁 )

But just imagine the amount of realistic damage he can do to your terrain/models ? 😉

Thanks for your comments. Z

Scratchbuilt 18mm Scifi Desert Buildings Painted up.

And here they are all painted up.
I used a dark blue green wash first, then lots of dry brushing with a buff colour, then washes with different shades of browns, greens & yellows.
I also used food colouring in the mix as it is not water proof when dry & so acts like poster colour or gouache.

I think they came out nice.

Thanks for your comments. 

Retro Spaceship objective

Hello again all,
I had this idea to do a Retro Spaceship objective. I will make it crash landed & add 2 fallen grey aliens from alternative armies.

The door is a milk carton inside cap, the nose is a sparkling wine cap, the main body is an led lamp & then card. I think it is simple yet effective.

Scratch built or converted 18mm Scifi vehicles

Hello again,
These are failed 3d prints . All are PLA. Used card, other 3d printed parts etc to make something out of them , instead of throwing them away.

Scratchbuilt 18mm Scifi Desert Buildings

Hello again all,
Some years back, I was about to throw away a large piece of packaging EPS when I noticed that it had squarish holes which could be used to make something. I painted the inside of these holes with acrylic paint & sprayed expanding foam in them. The acrylic didn't serve as a release as intended & I had to break of the packaging but I was left with 5 squarish pieces of hard foam.

Last week I was looking at them , musing if I should throw them away ( too much stuff /ideas, too little time , as a usual)  & this idea came. Using packing carton shapes for fruit cut into roundish shapes & matchsticks I did this ( 4 to go ). Extras are 3d printed or card.

And now they are 5. In the last pic I put one used for melons on top of the 3. Quick, differently nice & effective .

Thanks for your comments. Z

18mm Cultists

These are from Duncan Shadow .
Very nice minis & in parts so would be great for 28mm games like Silver bayonet.
I got parts from other models so as to make them more modern as the minis are equipped for fantasy ( e.g. bows ) though the knives can be used in any setting.
Again as I said before, I print 18mm as whole minis. Quite like how they came out & will do more with daggers & an Hmg, perhaps.
The metal mini is an 18mm GZG model.

More painted models

Here we see one of the preachers of the word being transformed into a creature from another dimension/warp ( result could be random - from a squirming tentacle to a fully fledged demon. The demon is a fantasy metal mini.

Here's a model I kitbashed Doris the sad eyed familiar.
