Cardboard Cutting

I had to cut a lot of cardboard for the next step onto finishing the Appartement building. Not only for the stairs...

Blue Creek Appartement pt.1.1 - The First Floor

Here's how far I am with the Blue Creek Appartement. It differs a little from the original in the games, mainly the stairwells and the entry halls but that's about it. Tried to build all Appartements just like in the game what is kind of difficult as you only see about two or three rooms of the Building but I think I can go with that. Here is the view from the top.

Silent Hill Burger pt.1.2 - Status

The Burger ist the last of the small buildings. So all small buildings have the same status and as soon as the MDF arrives they will reach the next step with pimping the base and then getting some structure sauce and paint. Until the delivery arrives I'll finish the first floor of the Blue Creek Appartement building which is going to be quite huge.

Grocery pt.1 - Status

Not much for today, just a pic of the Grocery Store and how it looks like right now. The only thing I asked myself after finishing the interior was "Where the hell is the storage room?" but I guess this is a organic grocery store and they are only selling fresh stuff. Phew! Fluff gap closed.

Distraction of the day - BBQ and Beer

We have sunny 25°C and what else could you do but having a BBQ and some beer? Finally summer came and I love it. Can't wait for some BBQ and Wargaming day outside. So excuse me some meat and beer is waiting for me. Cheers!

Massive Killing Capacity - Some more chainsaw loving

I was quite busy in the last few days. Besides working ont he Silent Hill gaming board I painted this guy. The basic model is a Cynwall Nova Construct from Rackham, the head is from a Tyranid Gaunt, the Machineguns are from the Imperial Guard vehicle sprues and the Chainsaw is built from several 40K Chainswords.

Living Houses pt.1.3 - Status

These are the four Living Houses for the first half of the gaming board. There are two more to go for the second half but those are on hold until the first half is finished. All floors are already detailed, what was quite a pain with all those little cardboard pieces, and the green areas are gras mats that shall look like carpet if they are painted once.

The Damned Roads

... and I mean it! Why? Well, it seemed all so easy and building them wasn't taking much time. They are basically two bars of foamcore covered with cardboard pieces as sidewalk glued onto a base of cardboard. Like I said simple yet effective. But then I painted them with my structure sauce and the troubles began. The carboard started warping during drying and it was impossible to attach them to each other. It was horrible. I didn't want to throw them away and so I putted them away and decided to wait until I get an idea of fixing this mess. This is what they looked like after they warped.

I promised to take you there again someday but I never did ...until now

Yes I know I'm nerdy quoting Mary's letter to James from Silent Hill 2 but hey I love that game. After finishing my bunker board I now have some new skills and techniques so I can go on with my Silent Hill gaming board. I started this a looooong time ago, I think it was in 2008 and I got as usually lazy and as there showed up some technical problems later I just took everythink and stored in a box out of sight. But I never gave up this project and worked on smaller pieces of it. Like the models and this city sign.
