I just added another pressure pot to my growing horde for resin casting. In celebration of the new denizen I want to sculpt up and cast a new rpg/wargame terrain piece.

What is a must have terrain piece, that is not always readily available but you wish was in your collection?

If I get enough feedback I'll select one suggestion, sculpt/cast the piece and send it to the winning choice.

The Winchester pub.

Lord Raglan Inactive Member08 Jan 2013 11:26 a.m. PST

1st choice – Spanish/Portuguese fortification

2nd choice – Samuari castle (which is affordable)

The Chew House at Germantown.

28mm cargo containers

28mm sci-fi modular prefab buildings, like kromek buildings only in 28mm scale.

Cheers, Xin

I agree with the 28mm scale Sci-fi buildings. Nothing gothic, there is a enough of that, buildings, even just fronts of buildings for people to build foam core behind or put on table edges.

redbanner414508 Jan 2013 12:12 p.m. PST

15mm buildings w/ damage suitable for WWII. Everything seems to be either pristine or destroyed nothing w/ slight damage as seen in so many photographs.

Patrick Sexton Supporting Member of TMP08 Jan 2013 12:22 p.m. PST

The Olympic Hotel in 28mm.

TKindred Supporting Member of TMP08 Jan 2013 1:58 p.m. PST

28mm Roman marching fort.

NY 28mm Roman buildings: Apartment houses, taverns, market stalls, houses, villas, etc.

Muzzlehead Inactive Member08 Jan 2013 2:29 p.m. PST

I built a 15mm Roman Tower…. that would be easy to scale up


Personal logo PatrickWR Supporting Member of TMP08 Jan 2013 2:30 p.m. PST

I also agree with 28mm non-gothic sci-fi buildings.

An Arab Tempe for darkest Africa.

I meant tembe

Spanish Caribbean fort / walled city port !

15mm French Revolution guillotine

45thdiv08 Jan 2013 4:53 p.m. PST

I too want to add my vote to 28mm cargo containers.

Mako11 Inactive Member08 Jan 2013 5:17 p.m. PST

Hmmmm, could use some nice 1/600th, or 1/300th scale dams and reservoirs for a 617 Sqdrn. raid on them, with Lancasters.

Jeremy Wright Inactive Member08 Jan 2013 5:25 p.m. PST

A generic hut. You could add in a small selection of bits to customize it so the same hut could work for anything from cavemen, to orcs, to post apocalyptic hovel.

BigNickR08 Jan 2013 5:50 p.m. PST

Storm drains.


The single hardest piece of terrain for me to add to my boards

CAPTAIN BEEFHEART08 Jan 2013 9:14 p.m. PST

A convenience/gas station store.

Coelacanth1938 Inactive Member08 Jan 2013 11:00 p.m. PST

Winchester Pub.

A convenience store would be nice too.

Cadian 7th Inactive Member08 Jan 2013 11:13 p.m. PST

Hmmm, so many crossposts….I would like to see non gothic sci fi habs, yet a dutch style generic barn would cover a lot of blackpowder- WW2 and also be good across national boundries and oceans.
But what I'd really like is a 50ish greasy spoon diner of the railcar variety where it screams formica and stainless steel in a chrome encrusted artdeco repurposed shell. Great for pulp, zombie, and fallout gaming and a nice kitchy theme resturant for urban bladerunner type scifi noir!

PrimiPili09 Jan 2013 12:13 a.m. PST

An Indian Hermitage for an 'Ramayana' HOTT army, preferably 15mm scale.

PrimiPili09 Jan 2013 12:15 a.m. PST

Valhalla in any scale.

LostPict Supporting Member of TMP09 Jan 2013 6:15 a.m. PST

A nice 28mm mead hall for Valhalla or the Golden Hall of Meduseld (LOTR) or Herot (Beowulf)

Lost Pict

sumerandakkad Inactive Member09 Jan 2013 10:59 a.m. PST

A Zoroastrian fire temple for my Persians in 6 & 28mm scale.

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP09 Jan 2013 11:19 a.m. PST

1) If we are talking 28mm(?), then non-gothic sci-fi buildings are a must (palace walls, police/government HQ, barracks, apartment/ hab stacks, monuments, etc…),
2) Sewer sections with stairwells & piping (confined space, also useable as spaceship corridors),
3) Fantasy ruins of old towers, monuments, religious buildings (think stonehendge + LotR),
4) Spaceport control tower & hangers,
5) Mid-Later Samurai period wooden forts, as depicted in the movies "Throne of Blood" and "Ran";

Redoubts #9 and #10 at Yorktown in 28/25mm.

Elkhorn Tavern in 15mm.

Roman bath- house in 28mm. Ruined or otherwise.

Muzzlehead Inactive Member10 Jan 2013 8:49 a.m. PST

I was sick with flu (for a 2nd freakin' time in 2 weeks) but will post a decision on my next project in 24hrs. I also posted the question on Facebook. link

I will draw all the posts for suggestions together and provide the majority of updates on my blog.

28mm grist mill with water wheel

zircher10 Jan 2013 10:10 p.m. PST

Not that I really want it, but the first thing that came to mind was 'Glenn Beck encased in carbonite'. :-)

PrimiPili10 Jan 2013 10:12 p.m. PST

A 28mm Soviet WWII concrete bunker.

PrimiPili10 Jan 2013 10:14 p.m. PST

A post-apocalyptic 'Salford Lad's Club'.

Add a decapitated head on the ground.

Congrats ochoin ceithir!

Ozymandias will be my next sculpt/cast.

I expect at least 6-8 weeks to complete the cast. I will keep my blog updated with WIPs on the project.

Ochoin ceithir if you live outside the Continental USA I will split delivery costs with you. If you are within the Continental USA shipping is all on me.

Smile ear to ear.

Today has just become a red letter day.

Thank you very much indeed.

Thin cobbelstone roads. I have some but they are on the thick side.

toomanyfigures Inactive Member14 Jan 2013 11:53 p.m. PST

15mm contemporary house for zombie wars.

Steam riverboat wreck.

28mm non-gothic sci-fi.

Adam name not long enough Inactive Member17 Jan 2013 9:44 a.m. PST


I buy scale scenes pdfs and print them at 75% – works wonders for modern buildings. Mind you, they are mostly British, but with the new Khurasan Yorkshiremen…

firstvarty1979 Inactive Member17 Jan 2013 2:04 p.m. PST

The Argonath, in 28mm.


It'd be pretty nuts even in a size compatible with 15/18mm!

Ark3nubis Inactive Member17 Jan 2013 5:33 p.m. PST

No need firstvarty1979, just put yer minis on the floor and stand next to a friend of comparable height as yourself with your arms raised (and spray yourself stone colour while you're at it too…) that should be about the right scale I'd say.

IronMike17 Jan 2013 6:13 p.m. PST

6mm modern structures that could be adapted to a near-future sci-fi setting with little difficulty: Helipads, aircraft control towers, radar installations…you get the idea!

firstvarty1979 Inactive Member17 Jan 2013 11:34 p.m. PST

stand next to a friend of comparable height as yourself with your arms raised (and spray yourself stone colour while you're at it too…)

You HAD to know someone had done that already given all of the rabid LotR fans out there!


firstvarty1979 Inactive Member18 Jan 2013 9:55 a.m. PST

Hmmm… Picture not working.

How about this link instead?
