    The July issue of the Annual 2010 a customizable mine diorama that you can print and assemble as you need. Created with Dioramas Pro, it also shows off many of that add-ons features without the need of actually owning it!

    Mine Cart

    The style contains 14 A4/Letter pages of Dioroma goodness. Ech of these can be customized on its own, and together they allow you to build almost any mine layout. The accompanying mapping guide gives hints and tips for customization and assembly.

    The map pack Mine Diorama includes

    1 new drawing style

    2 new symbols

  • Kit Bashing a Warhammer Fence

    Posted on January 6th, 2009 Rob No comments

    I was working on my Warhammer Manor and decided that I’m going to base it. Once that decision was made, i started to lay out the base features. I was futzing with the walls and fences when I had the brilliant notion to make the gate a functioning one.

    I usually get in over my head when I have these simple ideas.

  • Building Cellar Dwellers’ Blacksmith shop – Part 3

    Posted on February 12th, 2008 Rob No comments

    Finally! Let’s finish this sucker up. You might want to reread the first two parts which deal with construction and painting.

    Finishing 1Lets start where Part 2 ended. Here is the painted building. It looks a little unfinished because the ground cover isn’t complete. I could have taken the quick way out and just painted the ground green but, like I’ve said before, “It just doesn’t look that realistic.”

    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 )

  • Carving Sprue Plants

    Posted on October 18th, 2005 Rob No comments

    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 wifes displeasure).

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

  • Styrene Jail Cell – With working door

    Posted on October 17th, 2005 Rob No comments

    Styrene Jail Cell

    I have a confession to make. I LOVE Styrene. There, I said it. Please don’t think less of me.

    I’m just a hack when it comes to working with this stuff. I don’t have the best tools and I certainly don’t worry about scale. I build for look and functionality.

    List of materials and tools is simple: Different shapes of styrene (described in the article), plastic glue, side cutters, ruler, pin vice (hand drill), razor saw & miter box.
