WIP Shots!

Realized I forgot to throw in the few work in progress shots that I actually took for the Mos Eisley project.

So here they are.

The ball of aluminum foil visible in the first pic was used to texture the walls. Wish I would have done that on the buildings I had already built. Super fast and easy and i think the result is great.

A Tiny Little Hive of Scum And Villainy!

The pandemic has certainly given me time to hobby. And when I wasn't curled up in a fetal ball of anxiety about everything, I actually got some modeling done.

I bought a Proxxon as an indulgence and boy oh boy do I like it. The city walls were a breeze to cut to size and I never would have been able to get the angled bits without it. The walls are mounted on popsicle sticks (I wish I would have done plastic card, but oh well). I put magnets on one end of each section. The other ends got small nails. The bond isn't as strong as if I used magnets on both but the prospect of matching the poles on so many sections was too daunting.

All the minis were painted during the pandemic. They're a mix of Brigade, Ion Age, Khurasan, and *maybe* GZG. It's been long enough I can't remember anymore.

I also treated myself to a gaming mat. Couldn't bring myself to make my own and it wouldn't have looked this good.

My buddy and I have run a game way back in February using the Galactic Heroes rules. Really enjoyed the mechanics. Can't wait to run a game with all my nerds, each with their own gang. Each gang with their own objectives, agendas, and interconnections.

Anyway, here's another image dump.

Thanks for looking!
