But miniatures are not enough; what I need right now is terrain to game in. I do have a good number of (mostly unassembled) buildings from Proxie Models, enough to assemble a semi-ruined town of good size. I also have an ample supply of Plasticard to use for basing and roofs. With the addition of assorted junk, I could build myself Novi Pripyat in all its blasted-out glory.
Here are some buildings I have already erected, but not yet finished or painted:
Here are three storage tanks to go along with this:
So my plans for the April-June 2013 period are:
1) Finish the Ruined City 15mm-scale terrain set. This could be used for:
- Sicarii (AKA Sikrik), a bombed-out world in my Alkonost Sector where the Laanese (Rebel Minis Sahadeen with Combat Wombat tanks) will be fighting the Incunablis Machines (Khurasan Mekanoids), in solo wargaming.
- Pripyat, the abandoned city in the Chernobyl Zone of Alienation, used for STALKER solo fights.
- Neo-Stalingrad, for my Stalingrad 2072 solo game.
Everything else - tanks, miniatures and WH40K - will come later.
What do you think?
