All the wood is now finished, and craters made and spackeled. A few detailing bits to add like a shrine or a ladder and then it is time to hit the primer for everything and start making a muck mix for the top, as well as coil all the barbed wire.And then it is creature time, I'm already working on a few testers to see if I like the look etc.

I literally dropped one of my entries on the floor thanks to my brilliant hands and I gave up on them all. Seeing my hard work shatter in many pieces.....yeah.
So, I grabbed a sheet of free styrofoam and cut it into smaller bits and made 2 test pieces for The Last War.
Those came out really good, but 5cm was too tall so I recut everything I had made down to 4 cm.
And that's how I have been spending my evenings. They are big, durable when dropped.
I'm doing them as tinned sheet and wood trenches. Everything completely in wood really nackered my wrists so that was out. I'll be adding details to some, but not all. I only need enough for a 2x2 area, but making more than enough to cover a 4x4 table for Killteam as well (might as well, right?)

Even if I have not lived here for the last 18 months, it has been a big part of my adult life. The things I did, the things I've seen and lived will stay with me for as long as memory will keep them alive...which makes it a good thing that I have pictures as oh boy has Covid done a number on the old noggin
Goodbye Elzengaard 54, may your new owners treat you as well as we have treated you, and protect them as well as you have protected us.
" A splendid gift from the friendly nation of Iraq to the nationd of Wadiya, to mark everlasting friendship"
A former Iraqi patrolboat (former Russian) has been donated to our glorious Navy to serve as a deterrent to the fiendish rebels. It's not the newest, or fastest, but comes with a extra bucket.
A toy boat donated to me by a friednd many a year ago and which fits 15mm perfectly, now finally ready to hit the table as.....something.
Painted up for the Summer Water Build 2023 that ran from June 21st till Sept 30th. (yes, I'm finishing it exactly on the deadline, sue me). Copied the paintscheme off of some Iraqi Minelayers from after the war, and yes, they really looked as shit as this, see attatched picture.
A little bit of progress, again grabbing from a bag of ancient bits ( the things you find sometimes....)
Wanted to see if I could give it a nice entrance and accidentally ripped it off from the base completely....apparently I had not glues it down as well as I though. That has now been remidied, after inserting the new door. A Tau something has now become a something next to the door. Is it a air filter, a coffee machine, a letterbox. God knows. This too has a small power generator, just need to fill in the side.
Happy with the progress :)

I want to build something scifi for this build as well, so a 15mm slum it is. I really like building these :)
Also, recycling is fun. The top of a horse trailer I once glued some bits on to try and make something to set next to a 28mm house, but since discarded. A very old Tau drone conversion, and some more bits. have to make a barn, a small garden plot, maybe try and tie in the old Necron scarab somehow?
I have less than a month, so carry on.

As the nun said to the monk.....it's a bit big.
I'm used to getting a box with smallish sized pieces, and this was a new store for me, but...
I'm going to need a bit of time to see what part works best, and shred/cut the parts I need for this and other builds.
