STARGRUNT in 25mm - Sci-Fi BUILDINGS.

 Hi...Thought to show you my Si-Fi Buildings made from what is often discarded materials.

The Buildings are made from Take Away Plastic Containers, Plastic Bottle Tops, Mat Board and a Pavlova Case. The glue used was 'Parfix' Super Glue.
The Unpainted Figure shown here is a STARGRUNT 25mm Soldier from the 'New Israel' Range as sculpted and designed by Mike Broadbent. I've ordered 30 variants of these figures from ERUREKA Miniatures (Victoria). I've decided on a Uniform paint scheme and I will name the force for what I call the 'ARCON EMPIRE' - more about this later on.
The Buildings all spray painted - I opted for a plain Matt Black and I think they do look OK.
All up this set of Sci-Fi Buildings cost me $3 and I prefer to do this type of modelling  and enjoy what can be made from materials that normally end up in the Rubbish Bin. I think they will work and look good in a Game.

Well- that is my news for tonight.
Stay well and safe there Friends.
Cheers. KEV.

  3. Hi KEV, I love the way you used the take away plastic to create the buildings. You have a wonderful creative ability! It is great to hear that you are out of lockdown. Congrats on the haircut. :-) I did the same thing when we came out here. Take care, stay safe, and be well! Best regards to you from Seattle! John

    1. Hi SUART,
      Yes- well pleased with how the containers suit the purpose- the containers are new and unused- that is where I spent the $3 for them from the 'Dollar Shop'- the rest was for gratis and saved from the bin. Stay well there Friend. Cheers. KEV.
