Step 1

Print out the tiles that you require. You will notice a few extras on the page, some grass and a log with blue tabs on the side of it. Continued…

Building the B7 3D Hill for MWAoD

Download the model HERE

This was a difficult model to build. Not because of the number of pieces. Not because the size of the pieces. No this model is difficult because of the curves in this model. If your a beginner than I can’t stress enough how important it is to take your time. This is not a model to make quickly. You will be required to set it down and let it dry several times before it’s completion.

Step One: Printing and Cutting

B7 Hill Step 1

Using card stock, either 150 lbs. weight (US & Canada) or 200 gsm everywhere else, print off all four pages of the pdf. Page one is the bottom of the model; page two is the top of the hill; page three are the sides of the hill; and page four are the interior supports. The interior supports will allow you to put heavier models on the hill without it collapsing. They will also strengthen your model allowing it to be used again and again! Get all of your pieces carefully cut out and set aside so they do not get damaged. Continued…

Building Cellar Dwellers Blacksmith shop – Part 2

Paint 1Welcome Back! This is part 2 of my 3 part mini-series on building Cellar Dweller’s Blacksmith shop. It’s been a while so you may want to reread the first part which deals with the actual construction of the model. This part is concerned with the painting and Part 3 will deal with “finishing”. (You thought painting it was the end? :-o )

Warhammer Buildings – Mini Review

Why a mini review? Simple… I bought the Warhammer Building Set (The Big One) and if I tried to do a how-to, I’d never (EVER) finish it.

I ordered it by mail even though I live near 3 GW Stores. At the price of $180CDN, it qualified for free shipping anyway. Why would I, a terrain God (*Cough*), buy such a massively expensive set? So I can do an article of course. I also throught it was a good deal. The set contains the Fortified Manor, The Church, The Tower and three sets of walls and fences (not 3 fences… 3 SETS of fences).

Building Cellar Dwellers’ Blacksmith shop – Part 1

This project began a long time ago. Situations both personal and business related conspired to slow me down. It goes without saying that when I start a project with an eye to turning it into a how-to article, it takes 10 times longer to do than if I just sat down to do it for fun.

Contents Cellar Dwellers makes resin kits for miniature wargaming. The Blacksmith’s Shop is a fairly easy kit to build as the main building is only 7 pieces. Making it true (square) is a little tricky. Best advice here is to make a couple of Lego forms to line up the angles.

I didn’t worry about pinning the walls together as I was planning to base it and use green stuff on the seams. Pinning is the act of drilling small, matched, holes and inserting a small length of wire in the holes to “pin” the sections together.

Carving Sprue Plants

I was asked to write a “how-to” on making plants out of sprues.

“What are sprues?”, you ask.

Sprues are the plastic frames that multipart models or minis come on. Most people cut the pieces off and throw out the frame. Not me. I never throw anything out (much to my wife’s displeasure).

I wasn’t going to write this up because it’s insanely easy and fast.

Texured Spray Paint test

Rustoleum Access PaintAfter seeing the new “Rough” paint that Gamesworkshop is hawking, I thought….. “There must be other options”.

You can get brush on paints with sand mixed in that provides a textured finish but spray paint which is good enough for miniatures is a little different. Walking through Wal-Mart the other day (My wife made me go… honest), I saw some Stone Creations paint from Rust-Oleum.

I bought the darkest one (N7991Black Granite) knowing that it would only act as the base coat. I’d have to put a coating of straight black spray over it.

I collected a bunch of Ruins from Fantascene. I felt that some of them were too smooth anyway for ruins. These would be my test pieces.

I got them ready then stone coated them. Once dry, I black coated them. I’m actually quite pleased with the results and have taken shots of the whole process. I’ll be posting them with a complete write up after I write up my Blacksmith Shop How-to.

Fantascene Ruins

Stay Tuned 🙂
