    Re: 28mm Modern Cityscape

    Well it turns out that updates are like buses. Over lunch I put the finishing touches to this lot.



    I like traffic lights - or at least I like these ones. They are more resin bits from the Mantic Mars Attacks Kickstarter - now sadly OOP.



    Anyone recognise these street names?



    Anyone know what happens if this phone rings and you answer it?

    Yes, Birch Street and Higgins Drive come from Jessica Jones.

    If you answer the phone, you get a number. But if the phone rang, it was for you. Now you need some cameras.

    Maybe I'm a little too obscure with my references.

    So answering the phone may be a good idea if you are being pursued by an agent.

    Re: 28mm Modern Cityscape

    I took a bit of a break for this project for various reasons but I am now back. There isn't actually a whole load left in the pipeline at the moment so it would be quite nice to clean the slate and get everything finished if I can.

    Here is the current state of the cinema kit I showed off back in December 2015. I made a start on this last year but it is quite a large and intimidating kit and I faltered in my resolve. It has been sitting on a shelf part painted for months but I am planning to take the game to ROBIN in Nottingham next month so it would be nice to have this model available for that layout.

    This is very much a WIP - I have applied the base coat and started applying washes. There is still plenty more to do before it is finished.

    That theater is, thus far, living up to its' name. The next time to play a game with this terrain could we please get a battle report with pictures from a mini's eye view? That would look amazing.

    More of a news helicopter view than a mini's eye view but you might enjoy this:-

    I'm running another big game at the end of the month and I will be sure to take lots of photos.

    I am now proud to present the Majestic Theatre. I can't believe how long it took to go from base coating to the finished article - there is just so much detail which demands attention. All in all I think this is a fantastic kit and I can't wait to use it in my next game..

    Lots more photos available here:- http://imgur.com/a/NeIJS

    You know what Carnage City could use? I think it needs a subway system.

    So I decided that subway entrances could be useful scenario entrance/exit points meaning that not everything has to be table edge or relating to specific buildings. Fortunately there are several different kits on the market which will do the job nicely.

    The first ones here are (will be) produced under license by Slow Death Games (if you are into modern skirmish games check out their game Wild in the Streets). In the spirit of disclosure I shall point out that I got sent these for free as samples by SDG's owner. The versions I have are plywood but the versions that they will be selling soon will be MDF.

    Here are the bits of the kit laid out:-



    And dry fitted:-



    And with some paint on:-




    I like this kit, it is nice and compact, looks good on the table top and is easy to build and paint. Excellent stuff.

    And that's not all. By the time SDG got in contact with me I had already placed an order with TTCombat for a couple of their subway entrances. This is a much more chunky and gothic kit than the more modern SDG one.

    Here's the baked kit in various stages of assembly:-





    And with some paint on:




    Neither kit provides the image of the stairs going down - I knocked that up myself. The TTCombat one doesn't even come with any form of base but it is an easy job to cut some pasticard to size so no big deal really.

    And there you have it - two different takes on the same thing. The bad guys in Carnage now have somewhere to run to when the cops close the roads, and with four stations to choose from the cops will have a hard time sealing everything off.

    Both look great and your descending stair case is a fantastic addition.

    Those subway entrances are simply amazing, superb work.

    The cinema is a very nice kit with a good selection of movies shown.
