Hello all;

I made/moulded/cast a load of little wall pieces that can be combined in multiple ways. (Seven different models).

They're a plaster-like material, quite light but surprisingly sturdy (I dropped quite a few from waist height & they're undamaged). They definitely need a base coat after which they lose their chalky surface.

If anyone is interested in (almost) any (sensible) number of casts (plaster or resin) PN me.

I also made a few other little models I'd subsume under "Battlefield Eye-candy", check my page here to see images.

Some of these models make sense in game-technical terms, e.g. as objective markers or in the case of the craters maybe as markers for suppressing fire - others less so.

I'd be glad to include your input on future models, feel free to comment! Ideas on game/rule-relevant models welcome!

Oh nice! I'd call them "scenics", like the Battlefield Scenics webstore.

Nice - "scenics" it is.
Besides, "eye-candy" very much depends on the paint job in the end...

More scenics in action:

Great looking city! I guess the big buildings are home-made?

@nitpick:
Thanks! Yes, all homemade. The one in the middle was my entry for Epicomp, the rest is stuff I made out of styrodur, mostly by help of a bandsaw.
The stacked ones are my attempt at modular hive buildings, see more imgs here, others are runs of single models some of which you can see here. Some of these are just cut-n-glue styrodur jobs, for others I used wall pieces cast from own designs.

Those little firing points on the walls look a little too small for a standard rectangular base... Disheartening to say the least. Cool walls though. What kind of price point have you set for these?
