Model Making

Ork Bar - A Wargaming Model by Andy SlaterI've been into model making for as long as anyone can remember and over the years I've been interested in various genres of it. However much of my more recent work has been with wargames terrain.

I'm not an avid gamer, although I would probably play more if I could find a bunch of people who were actually interested in playing properly i.e. by the rules. The things that appeal to me about wargames terrain are:

1. That it lends itself to small projects. That's because, from a gaming point of view, it's good to be able to arrange things differently each time you play. Of course it also means that the models will fit reasonable easily onto shelves for display.

2. The opportunity to model fantasy and sci-fi subjects. Most other genres of model making are about making things as accurate and lifelike as possible. You can do that with wargames terrain too if you like, but you can also go crazy with it; and as you can see from the images on this page, I enjoy that.

Since 2006 I've been the owner/administrator of TerraGenesis, a resource and community for people who are into making model terrain. If it has any appeal, come over and check it out.

Something else to check out is my Archeotech website where I sell a variety of model making components.
