Jungle terrain

Courtesy of a mate's kind donation of lots of plastic aquarium plants, my jungle has considerably expanded. Dinosaurs, Predators, &c, &c. Loads of possibilities!

Cheap MDF ruins

These are a few kits a mate at the club bought. They are the very simplest shapes: some multi-level corner ruins with windows. I love them. There is basically an infinite amount of opportunity for personalisation. I've largely gone with a brick wallpaper motif on the outside, then balsa wood floorboards on the inside. They are so generic that they can do service in pretty much any era from the mid-nineteenth century through to Warhammer 40K. Unfortunately, I don't know where he acquired them besides "Ebay". If I find out, I'll add the information.

Tau forcefield thing?

Another thing for a friend at the club. This doodah was a lot of fun to paint. I did quite a bit of masking, chipping and loads of weathering. I think it's some sort of floating forcefield-bearing structure that advances across the battlefield. There's a big gun on a tower involved, too. The forcefield is a separate piece of translucent blue plastic that the friend who owns the kit has since inserted.

Space table

A long time ago in a blog not terribly far away, I painted a table tennis table so it provided a (nearly) 4' by 8' playing area for space battles. That's great but not portable. Ergo, meet the new table, smaller than the old table. This is 3' square, and was quite fun to construct. Show me someone who dislikes sawing up bits of wood and I'll look at them funny. I hope the pictures speak for themselves. A spot of glue plus some weight plus clamps plus time = the skeleton. Add a grey undercoat, a black gloss base, and then some gentle sprays with spraycans.
