    1. Thanks very much. I prefer figure friendly terrain tbh. if I was doing a display piece perhaps things would be different. The top of the cab comes off as well still so got access inside for multiple minis.

    1. Thanks i'm really pleased with it. I think I might have a go at doing one with some sort of lighting feature. But that will be one that takes a lot more planning I reckon

  3. Wonderful stuff Simon. As CW states its both very pleasing to the eye and you can actually do something with it during the game (i.e. figures can actually move on it and through it). Great to see you continuing on with your AtDE scenery - I must crack on with mine at some point.

  10. I am very impressed with this, Simon. What a great piece of post apoc scenery. The inclusion of the Mad Max figure was an inspired choice.

    1. Thanks Bryan. I had dug him out to see how well he would fit with the engineers for a friend and he matches quite well. So I though why not lets have some picks with the wanderer of the wasteland.

  11. Superbly done, Simon. Your work on terrain is only matched by your equally impressive brushwork on your character figures. And you do it all ahead of schedule.

    1. Cheers Finch. I wanted it to be faction neutral so it can fit in as a normal terrain piece.
