Steam Launch WIP

There's a nice article in one of the gaming magazines about making a steam launch, and I am easily influenced! 28mm Copplestone German Freikorps chappy for scale.


Many moons ago I posted a teaser of crop fields. Here are some more pictures. Pic F8 is what the furrowed fields look like before I pop yellow ground scatter all over them. Just wee bits of carpet tile, those.

Terrain: abandoned Wild West building

I picked this MDF kit up at Salute. Apologies for forgetting the company, but whoever it is, they sell a ruined and an in-use version of this one. I really liked the basic shape. I ended up cladding the outside in balsa, and making individual tiles for the roof. The main colour was Army Painter Red spraypaint, with some pre- and post-shading with black, white, their cream colour, and then a bit of drybrushing. I added a few little details, like the logpile and a few tufts of grass, but wanted to leave it fairly empty, both for playability and because it's a abandoned building, so the emptier it is, the more right it feels.

Grenfell Tower

The British government has been executing its subjects quite deliberately for the past seven years. They care only about profit, and not at all for people.

First, they came for the sick and the disabled, who couldn't stand up for themselves. People died. Then they did their very best to destroy the NHS, the police and every other element of the backbone of this country. People died.

But even before that, they refused to do any work at all on protecting people in tower blocks. Until the other day, we had been lucky. By sheer chance, this disaster did not fall on us. For the whole reign of this money-grubbing, people-hating government, they have done nothing, not one single solitary thing, to help. Their sadistic, greedy MPs voted down measures aimed at making housing "fit for human habitation". How evil do you have to be to vote like that?

They have crushed your fellow humans. They have beaten them into the dirt. They have starved your brothers and sisters. Finally, they have burned people alive. I hope that at last everyone can see that these monsters have killed too many innocent people at once for it to be ignored.

The Conservative MPs are monsters. They voted in overwhelming numbers for these deaths. Throw them out. Demand another election. Throw out these killers, and put in a government that will not seek to kill the poor and the weak. Give us a government that, even if it doesn't do everything right, at least does not actively seek our destruction for thirty pieces of silver.
