Timecast 6mm buildings..

I finally got around to painting my Timecast buildings, and I must say I am very impressed with them.

Not only are they excellent scale models, but they are very well cast with almost no flash or miscasts.

So here they are. Some of the pics have some of my Adler Russians marching up the street, and while the two brands don't scale together particularly well, I think the effect is fine in 6mm.

These are from the Napoleonic 6mm series, and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

A little more progress..

Not a whole lot to report really, however I do now have a gaming table (pretty fundamental in terms of this actually being a gaming room!).

Also, I finally got my print on the wall.. and I must admit, it looks pretty dashing! The framing turned out pretty much exactly as I wanted it.

The other major thing is my glass cabinet is in. I think in the future I will likely need another couple of these.

I started a thread on The Miniatures Page in regards to how to actually do the gaming table top. While the table itself you can see in these pictures is temporary until I can put something better together (with storage etc...) I am actually pretty happy with the way the top of it turned out. All I did was die a white sheet of polar fleece brown, then spray paint it with beige, and two shades of green... I then added static grass in parts, and the odd area of rocks etc... hills were simply some left over polar fleece under the top-sheet, although it's still not stable enough yet in my opinion (those edges hanging over the sides look untidy too.. soon to be fixed though).

Here are some shots a bit closer up of the base cloth...

So over all things are looking a lot more like a gaming room. Still plenty to do though!
