I fancied creating a gaming surface for Monster Island and Escape from Monster Island, both of which involve Kaiju - in the former the beasties fight each other, in the latter you get an army fighting Kaiju - or go toe to toe with a giant robot a la Pacific Rim.

i have a large gaming surface underground - well, in our cellar - and I settled on what I call an architect's model sort of design for rapid painting - everything is monochrome, or just about.

I prepared around 40 bits of scenery, all very non-gothic and ungrimdark.

The table, with storage underneath.

Some bits for the future buildings (foreground; the stuff in the background are some of my limestone terrain for fantasy/scifi in 28mm)

A distraction in the cellar.....

The quest for perfect gaming is never doomed. It's the journey not the destination.

I will enjoy the progress.

What, the wine bottles? ;D ;D

Hi CC, I actually progressed slightly beyond this stage, will post pics once I take some.
The perfect gaming surface is a project waiting in the wings.
It always is, of course ;D

Looks like a very old basement converted to War Room ... ;D

More like a very old basement and a war room occupying the same space and time. It's easier to understand when the wine bottles are opened.... ;)

Small update - the first 14 bits are done. These are low detail, hence my description of these as part of an architect's model type setting. Working on another 20 or so bits.
I have the board, I have the buildings, I have the troops - I have enough painted stuff, just for once - but I don;t have the kaiju! Argh!

I want something which is not too GW in appearance, so no nids or lizardmen (although the nids are great smaller scale adversaries for the military in this sort of game). And my only dinosaury beast is a skeleton - not good (would be nice if I had a fleshed out model and used the skeleton as a post-death-rayed-kaiju).

I have a man-in-a-rubber-suit type monster, painted too, but I have no idea where he's stored. Argh. And I own a giant robot, but still needs tonnes of conversion work and he's far too big anyway, larger than a 28mm scale Ork Stompa.
I need to go through some toy stores...

Toy Shops? A reasonable looking monster could be picked up cheap from one of those

Yup.
But first I owe it to myself to go through the pile of stuff in the dungeon, there SHOULD be something, somewhere...

I always love the inventiveness of your projects!!


Thanks - and it's not dead (so far) - in fact I managed to rustle up a few older bits and complete some new ones. The tally stands at 30 small to large scenery bits so far, with another 20 or so to go.
Pics to be added by tomorrow, I hope.

As promised.
It still looks a bit bare, as the table is large, but there's more to come.
The Kaiju hasn't put in an appearance, and the Nids kindly supporting the project are a bit too small for the job, although the Harridan really did it's best flapping around town.
