Some Scenery

I have continued to plod on with getting the half finished scenery projects completed- with the addition of theses resin pieces. The first is a wrecked car from Ainsty, It's a single piece resin casting- nice and crisp with no air bubbles or mould lines. It should be good for a number of different scenarios (like the contractor's care in 'Contracting Troubles' and as a general bit of scatter scenery in the slums of Zugando. (It will probably see some service in zombie games too).

The next one is a photo I have already posted on my other blog (Four Colour Super Minis) of some scenery I painted for my WW2 Burma Campaign, but I think it is worth including here as it will be just as useful for Zugando.
I hope you wont mind the repost, but I am not sure if you regularly read the other blog. I am also hoping you will overlook the WW2 figures in the photo- they are there just for scale really. 
I haven't a clue who made these pieces- or even if they were made by the same manufactures. I soaped them with someone of Lead adventure Forum.

Mission School

I have added another building to my growing list of Zugandan real estate. This is the mission school, built by missionaries to provide an education to the poorer communities of Zugando. 

I built it using the same technique as the Zugandan shops- using the modular building from Warbases (the same one as I used for the bike shop). This one had a bit more work in it, as you can see. I took the MDF roof and used that as the base for the class room, then cut a new roof out of card and applied the corrugated card on top. The roof for the class room is fixed in place to make it stronger, but the main buildings roof can come off to put figures inside. The posters were just printed off the computer and stuck to the wall with prit-stick (I am not that good at painting!) 

Because there was a bit more work in this one it took a bit longer- but it was still finished beginning to and in a couple of hours- and cost less that £4!

More Buildings for Zugado

Firstly let me begin by apologising for the absence of any resent posts. Readers of my other blog (Four Colour Super Minis) will realise that I spent October furiously painting zombies and survivors for 'Zomtober'. Having painted, with my son, some 41 figures, I just wanted a change of pace. To that end I decided that I would dedicate November to getting some half finished terrain and building projects realised. I am a bit of a bugger for starting buildings and alike, but never getting round to finishing, and so my loft is usually crammed with half-completed projects that just need a bit of time and TLC. 
This is a strange thing, because when I get round to painting them, I am always surprised to find out how much I like painting scenery- What is all that about?

To that end, I have added some more shops to my Zugandan village, again using Warbases exceptionally inexpensive Modular Buildings. There were very quick and easy to do- the two story one cost £3.50 and the smaller one £2. I had them finished from beginning to end in an evening.
