Gothic Church (Gothic ‘Astle)

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

I’ve had this project for quite some time now and I’ve finally got around to actually finishing it.  The aptly named Gothic ‘Astle is actually a plastic kit from Pegasus Hobbies called the Gothic City Building Small Set #1.  The kit was easy to put together and very well constructed constructed.  The kits they offer are even modular, you could easily combine a few different ones together to create something unique.  On top of that, as with most of Pegasus Hobbies products, it was cheap.

Completed Gothic 'Astle

This piece would stand great on it’s own, I decided to (at the time) use foam core for a base, in hind sight, I’d opt for the hardboard in a heart beat.  I also added a wood floor to the inside.  The paintjob was a simple matter of drybrushing grey’s and adding some basing material to the base.  Overall I’m happy with the project, even if it took me 2 years to complete…I’m not sure why I waited so long.

 

 

Terrain…Purchases?

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

Say it ain’t so, but every once in a while there is good reason to buy terrain, and it usually comes down to one thing for me….I can be lazy.  On the flip side of things, I can also be sold on a good bargain or caught up in a moment of opportunity.  These items where all purchased at Gen Con and were all an opportunity to not pay shipping costs on small items, something I don’t ever care to do.

Pegasus Hobbies has plenty of plastic terrain models that you can purchase but something as simple as a bridge can be had for a relatively inexpensive price, so I picked one of them up to give it a try.

Another Pegasus games item, pre-painted oil drums

For quite some time, things like Crates, Barrels, Oil Drums, Ammo boxes have been something we want to have and use but haven’t found a sound way to do it.  So for now, these fit the bill and will blend in nicely with our existing sci-fi terrain.

The last item is a set of barrels, about the equivalent to thigh high barrels in 28mm scale where had for a mere $1.50 out of some random booth at Gen Con.  I wasn’t looking for these per se, but I happened upon them and couldn’t resist.

All in all it’s hard sometimes when you’ve become so accustom to building your own terrain to purchase terrain items, but I look at it as a challenge of making them fit and integrate with your custom terrain.  If that can be achieved, it’s nothing but a win for all parties involved.
