Scenery hotchpotch

I'm mixing stuff from different manufacturers today, but all of it will serve the same purpose, crowding my board! 
The first pieces here are made by Valquiria Studio, a relatively new company specialised in coloured translucent resin pieces (among regular resin scenery elements). They don't have hundreds of references, but everything they have is really sweet. Some time ago I got a few tokens kits, a sci-fi one and a post-apoc one. This is what I've done with them:

Power generator and beacons
Control consoles (not all of them properly working!)
Supplies and land mines

Some really nasty looking alien eggs! Yikes!
Then the post-apoc stuff, again with translucent resin

Objective tokens!
 About the cans, just a couple of close-ups, as I did some freehand work on them. The upper one says 'Prandium', which is just Latin for 'food' (not that creative, I'm afraid, but this way I keep it WH40K friendly). About the other two you can see the ubiquitous Blue Sun logo (dual use material it's also Firefly friendly!!):
 The other one is just a bad pun. 'Bona Mala', which one could say means 'Good/Bad' really translates as 'Nice Apples' in Latin. that's it, end of story, my mind plays like that, I cannot avoid it.



Let's move on. Next thing here is from TTCombat, from their urban ranges. They were a gift from a friend, who split up his kits and allowed me to have these cones, a parking machine, a newspaper dispenser and an ATM:

Really sweet stuff, I didn't expect to have these on my board :)

 Finally, street lamps by Fenris Games. Street lamps is something my board is really in need of. I have a few kits on my radar, but these are the first ones I actually get:

I'm the star of the show!
I of course will need more, many more, and more sci-fi looking, but for the moment these will do their part.

This is it for now! My board keeps on growing slowly (and randomly!). Not even me can tell what will come next, but ahhh, that's the charm of it all :D

  1. A nice variety of bits there! Like the water cooler refills and the computer terminals, but your hand painted tins are the best!

    1. Thank you! I love those; the clear resin concept is cool for some elements. I'm looking for more water cans, just the same way as these, but as separate pieces. Still no luck though!

  5. Lovely stuff. It's these little details that make a board come alive.

    1. Thanks! I agree, I don't want my boards to be mere random line of sight blockers. If I'm representing a city, I want it to be a city. That means I still need more stuff!
