I'm in the very early stages of researching a Blade Runner or Judge Dredd project and am thinking about buildings. Now, the gold standard would probably be these:


but the problem is they're unpainted. And I hate doing buildings.

So with that in mind, are there any pre-painted city-like buildings out there? I've checked 4Ground and Crescent Root and don't see much. Any other ideas? Also looked at Sally4th and came up empty though I admit to finding their website hard to navigate. Maybe missed something?

Thank you for any help!

I don't know of anything pre-painted that isn't papercraft. I personally am not a fan of papercraft, but a lot of people love it.

Try Plast Craft:

4Ground and Sally4th both do painted kits.

Antenocitis Workshop have a lot of gorgeous pre-painted SF buldings & accessories in MDF/plastic that would fit the Blade Runner feel, but they're in the UK …

But just in case: link

Crescent Root makes some very nice pre-pained buildings. They are for other p eriods than post-apocalypse, but they might be a good place to start.

I appreciate all the tips. I'd never even heard of Plast Craft before – many of their items could work. Then, regarding Antenocitis things, there are many more, so I think I'd be pretty well set; and ordering from the UK is no problem.

Buck, I agree about Crescent Root. The trouble is this doesn't seem to be an area of focus for them. Yet? But I'll keep checking back!

Thank you all!

I have a fair amount of the Plast Craft stuff and I like it a lot.

Good to know, Dentatus, thank you!

Has anybody had any experience with Antenociti's products?

Plast Craft +1

Really, really like their stuff. It's becoming my default goto building vendor.

Thank you kindly, Norrins. Like I say, I'd never even heard of them before and so am quite excited. A great resource!

"Has anybody had any experience with Antenociti's products?"

I have quite a few of Atenociti's products, they are superb. I've never had a problem with an order and I'm in the southwest. The largest problem I've had with them is that they are slow to restock. The Knights of Dice stuff is great as well, so are Micro-Art studios and Wararesenal. All have great service, if you ever decide to pull the trigger on unpainted buildings. Plast Craft buildings are fine if you don't want or need interior access. All of my buildings were purchased with an eye to giving my Infinity games a dark, dirty Blade Runner feel.

@Gone Fishing: While I haven't (yet) bought any of AW's painted terrain/buildings (can't make my mind up on specific genre ATM), I have received multiple orders (large and sometimes complicated orders!) from them in UK, Germany and Japan. Absolute satisfaction every single time!

Took some pics of my various Plast Craft games.

Sorry Norrins, didn't check back on this thread for a few days. Those are some beautiful buildings. My favourite is the corner building with the green roof; looks right out of Blade Runner. Thank you!!!
