    You sir are something else!!! how do you find the time and energy, not only to just manage to do this - but to do it to the standard that you do! You seriously ought to consider casting some of your stuff!

    Rivet Choo Choo! (wip, still got to tidy things up)

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psxis8xm1x.jpg
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psrb1030vy.jpg

    Room for two crew!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psjlnbdxxq.jpg

    Includes troop cars...
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...pskzamuaps.jpg

    And larger cars for tanks n things!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psunzkqn1a.jpg

    The Caboose can take standard RW Plug-ins
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...pschfwbnts.jpg

    The top can also be removed so it can be used as a standard goods wagon (put what you like in it)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps0cypezoi.jpg

    Or with my simple slot-in sections can represent coal wagons
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psvm79l5eh.jpg

    Or ammo and equipment!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psqps1qduh.jpg

    Start laying those tracks!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Right, I'm going to suggest you just get a job with the guys that did Rivet Wars, your stuff is easily equal to what they have produced. I love the train & the bridge. I think we should have you tested for performance enhancing drugs, if you aren't on nandralone then I can only assume you are taking "I can't believe it's not nandralone" you sir are a hobby monster!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Figured with all this new scenery I would need some more of the little guys to populate it so decided to paint up the additional cannon fodder that came with my kickstarter..result, a bucket load of Rivets..thaaaaasands of 'em!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Rivet Wars factory WIP! A chimney Fred Dibnah would be proud of! 4 grid large building (or it could actually be used as a smaller 2 grid factory), Internal rooms designed in such a way that you will have to fight for every inch of ground! Combine it with the Choo Choo and imagine a multitude of scenarios. Maybe you have to protect the train delivering walker parts so you can recruit the Boss mechs, or maybe the factory is building the mechs and slowly loading them onto the train together with supplies to deliver to the front line, chop chop before the Blight forces capture the factory! How about using it as a forward repair facility similar to the Medic tent? What next? working on a couple of replacement ruined sections for it and then maybe some bunkers, possibly a secret lab for Dr Vorne's nefarious experiments..how about a portal to another dimension while we are at it (think along the lines of a stargate type thing) hmmmmm

    The little conveyor is removable so you can effectively use these two rooms as a large warehouse maybe?

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Knocked up a few conversion sections to change the factory into a ruin

    Consist of 2 room sections, two new damaged roofs and a destroyed chimney, great thing is these can be used separately as smaller scatter scenery...
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psw9luc80q.jpg
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psmurzqwg4.jpg

    Or of course used along with the factory to create a damaged version, either start this way or represent a destroyed factory part way through the game, production has stopped, maybe you need to get things up and running before you can start deploying those larger mechanised units!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Made up some 'scatterbags' I reckon these will look great all over the battlefield, I intend to replace my bodged up original bags with these pronto!

    4 Straights, 2 external corners and 2 internal corners
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psvntaj6ae.jpg
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psulv58yho.jpg

    I also created a little accessory pack so you can spruce up the bags, give them a little personal touch
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psa4duszab.jpg

    So from a 'plain' scatterbag section like this...
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psysf649hu.jpg

    You can have a little fun and create this!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psp9jioxwq.jpg

    Or one for the Blight!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psskt3ggpx.jpg

    That's probably it for a while now as I need to concentrate on our current kickstarter and do some space stuff. The Rivet stuff will be our next KS btw, hopefully April I still have LOADS of ideas for extra bits however so this isn't the end!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Fun game of Rivet Wars last night, Allied forged ahead with victory points when Wolverine was air-dropped right next to an objective and held it under heavy fire, heroic! As the battle on the ground started to heat up forward observers reported a bright red aircraft buzzing the trenches, the Red baron was on the hunt! In rapid response the Allies own Ace took to the skies and Reme Funck scored first blood wounding the Red Baron in a deadly aerial dance of death. Reme then dived low and strafed several Blight troops helping clear them from an objective with combined fire from the Wolverine, however this was his undoing as he should never have taken his eyes off the Baron, after a volley of ground fire inflicted another wound the Red Baron closed in for the kill and chalked up another victim!
    Meanwhile down on the ground the battle heated up, the Allies had held 2 objectives for several turns and the points were adding up however the Blight General had finally mobilized his heavy armour and specialised Trench assault squads stormed into the objectives, alas it was too late and the allies claimed the battle....but not the war! To be continued....

    I managed to paint up some of the scenery that will be part of our next kickstarter, sandbags look pretty funky, I will try and get some buildings and airfields done for next game!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Sprinked a little more paint over some creations, this time the ruins, walls and graveyard!

    Ruins comprise of 3 different 1 square model which can also be linked to make a larger ruin (I have purposely left tumbled walls, etc to allow access to various sides)

    The walls comprise of 4 separate sections which allow you to build all sorts of shapes!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps8trtxorq.jpg

    Graveyard is a 2 square set (or just use one if you are short of space) it will probably come in the same set as the church which I will paint up ASAP as it looks awesome!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psjwurl5pa.jpg

    The Rivet warfield so far...really starting to fill up!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Painted up the medic tent and accessory packs! The tent will be a house rule sort of thing, I have in my minds eye a simple rotation mechanism to 'heal' units rather than having to pay to deploy, casualties hit the bed first, next turn they are in the chair then the turn after that they are free to cause havoc again, great for bringing those heroes back! The accessory pack will be unpainted retail of course but its a fun way of customising all those pieces of scenery and adding a little character

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    That's the Church painted! Well, 3 churches to be exact as I hate to throw anything away and it took me 3 casts to perfect the mould! Saying that it was an excellent opportunity to see what can be done with more than one kit, all the parts are pretty generic and can be slotted together in a number of ways...check out my Abbey type building made from all 3 churches!

    <David Attenborough voice> here we see the Blight sniper nesting in his natural habitat...
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psg2721yfn.jpg

    Comprises of all these parts, quite generic too so the top of the tower can be attached in any orientation for instance
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psvkq0gs4e.jpg

    And of course the graveyard is a perfect compliment!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...pse14noga7.jpg

    Using the accessory sets lets create a forward supply depot in an old abandoned church!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psjoyw3bx4.jpg

    Or using more than one kit why not build a huge Abbey to fight through, who knows there may even be a crypt under there and access to untold occult artefacts for Dr Vorne to prod and poke!

    Rosie & Hilda painted! Pics really don't do these ladies justice, even I was impressed! Very tempted to make an armoured push-pull engine now, probably not commercially viable but I WANT one on my board!
