A Small Matter of Scale


Whilst a lead mountain can be a nagging itch that can never be reached, there is something to be said for hanging onto things, this is a clear case of that situation. Quite a few years ago, I bought off EBay some painted cryogenic chambers made by Grendal. At the time I was collecting and playing WOTC Star Wars miniatures with Wills. The nagging thought was that the chambers looked like something else, but I couldn't put my finger on it at the time.

Then whilst collecting 15mm Scifi it came to me...futuristic cars


But as with most things, it was just another idea amongst many vying for my limited time. Currently now that I have some time on my hands I am trying to organize my Scifi collection, particularly the scenery. What I like about Scifi is that scenery can cross scale boundaries; a regular sized container in 28mm can be a large one in 15mm. Unfortunately, due to my own disorganization, the scenery is scattered to the four corners of the shed. Anyway, I digress...

As you can tell from the string of recent posts, the paint and build area (or should I say the over used kitchen table) has been quite busy over the past couple of days. There were several projects needing basing, and this was one of them. With a little painting time and weathering powders , the vehicles were ready for the gaming table. I'm particularly happy with the addition of the aerials as they help to give a sense of scale.

In game terms, I think I will use them as fast response vehicles for the Corporation specialist teams...
