Some brief snaps of a WIP barracks on Mars.

Following the idea of converting Martian buildings to human use. A few bits of scatter for trade buildings.

Martian Gashant Yard/Jan 2021

So now we are in the new year a steady start. A small WIP of a gashant yard for the market place board. Made from left over kits and mdf sprues. A few extra internal walls to add, animal troughs and the main gate. The idea is it was once a domestic/commercial building now being used to house gashants for sale in Syrtis Major.

And a reorganising of my painting station to hopefully get some more VSF minis out this year.

One little message to the London Business School. Please stop trying to post on my page! GO AWAY!

Seasons Greetings /Dec 2020 and Beyond

Seasons Greetings

Nothing new to show you this month. Still working on the Martian dock board and market board. Hopefully one will be finished before the end of the year.

As in the last few years my main plans are to finish outstanding projects and hopefully hit the mini's mountain with paint and maybe just maybe get some games played.

Assuming the two massive boards mentioned are finish in the start of 2021. I've got more cloudships to finish. Terrain wise I've still got outstanding Venus buildings to finish. Also Government buildings for the British and other human administrations.

Most of my current planned Martian buildings are built. Maybe I'll do a few more for human use?

I've still working on backboards using posters and adding bits to improve old terrain. 

So still plenty to do for VSF.

As life is so changeable it the moment long term plans are proving harder than ever but you've got to try to keep your eye on the prize.

So let me wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

May your God, Gods or Richard Dawkins go with you. Hoping for a more hopeful 2021.

Martian city market WIP/Another October 2020 post!

 Busy Busy Busy!

Working on the Martian city market board. Further marking out and measuring. Working out where the buildings will go with the fixed foot paths. Hopefully it will be adjustable for later games.

MDF foot paths from the current snowed under ttCombat who are still trading through the constant beer flu restrictions. In the right hand corner a tax officer/canal light house conversion WIP.

Slow work at the Martian shipyards/October 2020

 Slow work at the shipyards. Lots of vessels in at the moment and time is scarce.

The Hullcutter is going to be the older version which has seen many years of action.

The twin hull is going to be a French armoured yacht for the French consul in the British sector of influence. 

The grey gun boat at the back is and almost complete American consul's ship just awaiting it's props and a few guns.

Next to it is another privately owned tug boat.

Whoops where did the August post go? August 2020

 I've just realised I forgot to post my August post of WIP human sky dock. Life can just pass you by.

Ironclad medium tank for scale.
