Terrain Tuesday #9


A quiet word with the people in my local friendly charity shop resulted in me picking up a box of broken or incomplete toys this week, in exchange for a small donation.  [If you're going to ask charity shops to root things out for you, it's imperative you go back and pick them up in a timely manner - most have practically no storage space and are unlikely to want to hold on to something they can sell to someone else if necessary.]

At worse, I thought, I would end up with lumps of plastic that I could use as Frostgrave ruins, or  even as stamping pads for texturing bases, etc.  As I put the pieces together it proved a bit better than that.

The once impregnable gates of Felstad now stand empty
And a roof finds a new home..

Fireman Sam's station, I believe
Doktor Strange has use for that tech, and a plinth is always handy
  But the crowning glory has to be the castle, guarded by doughty Sikhs for scale...





This will be my last post for a while due to the computer problems I've been having.  My laptop is being collected for assessment by the insurers tomorrow and I'm not sure when it'll be back or replaced.

So, goodbye for now.  I'm off to delete all the Japanese tentacle porn from the hard drive...

  4. Nice pickups, though for me that plinth is just the business. I'm going to have to go find one now!

    Good luck with the computer!

    1. I'm not sure what it's from. It doesn't seem related to anything else in the box.

      Not I have to think what to put on it...

  5. Cracking haul. Keep your eye out in the new year after parents discover just how much room all the new toys take up! 😉

  7. Fantastic pieces there. This will make me look at plastic toys afresh. Fireman Sam - who would have thought it?
