Another fantastic addition to my repertoire of laser cut doodads and trinkets, a 15mm scale modular brick house. It will be the start of the buildings I am designing for playing in Team Yankee/Flames of War, 15mm scale wargames. But since I don’t have Flames of War, it will just be for our Team Yankee Games.

As usual, cut in MDF, I meticulously designed the brick and roofing patterns to relatively fit in the size of the pieces. I still have some work to do as the patterns sometimes don’t translate well into the laser cutter for whatever reason and it skips some lines.

The patterns are scored, the walls and windows cut out. I want to play with the power of the scoring to make the depth shallower. I want to be able to pick out the grout better when I end up painting this.

Looking forward to more iterations of this design. The next thing I am making is a petrol station and a Brick wall.

I’ve always wanted to make custom objective markers, for any game system. This is an objective for my Soviets. I made all those little sandbags and made a swivel for the MG. The narrative for this is it is a small command outpost on the flank of the marching army. The officer is waving down someone off canvas. The brass rod is the base for a Soviet flag that will be flying or drooping.

Group shots. As always, I love the forgeworld models. Lots of detail and cool looking. I have high hopes for Shapeways and the minis they produce. Good detail on the 3d prints.

The Domitar was the highlight for sure. Successfully making conversions like that always makes me feel good.

The Domitar is ready to smash more Orks. Not much left of the one underfoot after the pew-pew and the squish-squish.

This is a kit bashed Iron Circle Domitar that can be used as either the Domitar or a special Magos. I used rubber casted tubing and cables, so much easier to pose that heating resin. The conversion was inspired from a great conversion that had the four-armed machine and another conversion with the Domitar ripping apart sprue. It’s great.

The next commission on the block. More 30k Mechanicum, an extension to the army I did last time. Kitbashing and converting was needed for the ‘Iron Circle’ Domitar. I never knew this, but Zinge Industries sells miniature cabling in rubber. It makes Mechanicum so much easier to build. I have been enlightened.

Everyone has been based, now to prime! All 83 of them. A small change made to the foot slogging characters; shields on their backs instead of their arms.

The characters get shields, and two of the spearmen get banners and swords. The banners are made of styrene plastic. Time to base all of them.

A bit of a weapon swap. 24 models have swords instead of spears. The rest and built normally. The other half are in their container. I’ll be basing them standard gravel and grass. The characters, Elendil and Isildur, will be fitted with shields.
