Buildings and Das...

Hi All,

I have been fiddling around with white Das, its funky stuff that dries in a day or two. As you can see my first efforts have had odd results but I will still make a mold so that I can populate my board with streets of terraced housing. I certainly could'nt afford to buy resin terrain and I have deliberatley kept the frontage small, a shop and a pub are on the way along with two different house designs.

I will complete my house over the weekend and paint it up, hopefully it will be useful for a lot of periods, the very British civil war to pulp games (not that I do either in this scale!). I could put up a tutorial but youtube has some great videos on how to do this...thanks for looking.

I will apologise for the computer finally committed Hari Kiri so I am on an old XP system from my backup computer-does anyone know what programme will allow me to alter a photo?

Whats happened at Games Workshop?

My son has recently attended a local club where it seems everyone plays Warhammer 40 000. Naturally he wanted to have some figures of his own (he had been using his bigger brothers), so off we went to a Games workshop stockist....

It took some time for the initial shock to wear off but really I still cant believe it-up to £15 for a figure because it had special abilities in the game?? The army boxes started at £65 and a box of 5 was £15....even my son who was really keen to start his own army refused to part with his piggy bank of savings at those prices.

So what to do? 20mm Hat to the rescue! My son is on the Plastic soldier website as I speak decideing which to order, thank god forHat.

Will post some pics later.
