Thanks very much Bissler, those photos look great! Glad you like them :)


No, thank you sir! Glad you liked the photos, it was the least I could do - I'm delighted with the buildings!

Hi guys,

Thanks very much for the interest and support of this venture. I will be making more scenery in the future now as there is interest in it.

One question I have for yous before I go ahead and mould up a few more of the masters I have lying around is this....

Would you prefer the solid cast piece like the previous models or a hollow shell with a roof that you could either glue on yourself or lay flat on top of the shell to allow figures to be placed inside?

Here are a few photos of what I mean.

I've taken the Tall Admin building and removed the existing roof and created a new one which can be glued down for a permanent fixture or can be laid on top to be removed. As you'll see in the photos, the original walls of the master are 2mm thick resin which would just smash in the demoulding process or in transit, so I've thickened them out to approx. 6mm to give rigidity and strength.

Any comments would be gratefully received! :)

I'd prefer hollow and a seperate roof. First I'm into variety and the ability to custom fit fabricated parts is a big deal for me. Second, if hollow-ish and a separate roof I'd be able to go to work on it with the hack saw and build bombed out/burnt out versions. Lastly, it's going to be far far lighter which saves on cost/shipping which ultimately is going to make the product more valuable as an endeavor for you.

Hi!

The eye of the primarch has been drawn to you wares! ;)

Very interested in your fine products. When do you expect to do the "recessed" pieces to mesh the buildings with the roads?

I have been looking for something like this for a long while. Share your future plans with us. :)

Hi!

+psypher+ has looked into the eye of the primarch and see that the future is...

More stuff for the primarchload!! ;D

I sent him a few hand drawn images of what I wish to accomplish and while we leave him to his great works, I wanted to ask forum members on ideas for custom buildings to fill this city scape. :)

This is one of my 8x5 foot tables. This is not to scale, but to give an idea of layout.

Image

I would like to get some nice "administratum" government buildings in the city center. What you think they should look like?

Also perhaps a great cathedral to the Emperor? A tank factory?

Share your ideas with me and maybe they can be brought to life. :)

The second is a "riverscape" shown here.

Image

The rectangle are bridges of different sizes the largest three should accommodate an Imperator crossing it. Are there any riverside structures or edifices that would be cool to add to this?

I look forward to your comments and ideas. :)

Primarch

What else could be built? You know I'm not a demanding guy so I'd just limit psypher to building his own take on ALL of these:

No hurry mate! I'm a reasonable man so I don't mind waiting till the end of this month for you to have all of this ready. >:D
