Surprise Parcel! and Terrain Progress

Got home from work yesterday to find a surprise parcel from Thunderchild Miniatures (Click the name!)  courtesy of Lord Siwoc. Johnny ran a recent competition which I won!  Thunderchild miniatures are a recently started company making resin terrain and miniatures for the Post Apocalypse. There is some useful generic stuff as well as robots, mutants and other weird creaturesI shall certainly be browsing there store for more additions the two sets below are fantastic quality castings no visible air bubbles and the fit in nicely with all my 28mm miniatures. The Sofa's shall certainly take pride of place in my new terrain piece. ( more on that in a bit)



Here we are next to Jester, Siwoc and Squint


A little bit of progress on the terrain last night incorporated some suggestions from Sunday's post

 Mathyoo's window frames.

 Robert's Window frame symmetry  with bits strewn outside and inside.

 I think a tiled roof will look better than turning it into a fortress. I have the tiles to add yet but this needs to dry first.



The van is now blocked off properly with rubble from the rest of the building.

  6. Lovely little prize and will look good on your table top, alongside your building. Some nice WIP shots and as the others say, its certainly coming together now you're got your detailing in place. Certainly inspired me to get some textured paint on a couple of building. Inspirational posting as ever :-)
