28mm Ladder Bodging?

......thought I dreamed this idea and that it was unique, no such luck, far better people have done this but it's a good idea as I don't like scenery lying on the table as it can get damaged especially when you store it so after the holy trinity of lurker scratchbuilding/bodging (glue, green stuff and anger) I made these, the ladders are GW I believe.

Blogger is still acting up a little.


The bases are 30mm plastic.


May have to add to the lurker trinity of bodging and add swearing as these buggers didn't cooperate very well in standing at this angle


Action shots.


....more action shots.

  5. You can never have too many ladders, or too many mighty oaths to swear with while bodging.

  9. Original or not they Still look ok...there´s a miniart set, French knights with assault ladders, the ladders come with pins on the bottom and plastic bases to mount them in. I´ve had what I think are genuis ideas only to find out they´ve been done before:-(

  19. They seems good, but I must ask... there not more problems when you store them? You cannot pile them, they seems that must stand... or I'm wrong?

  20. @Zerloon:Have a display case that they are stored in, just for tall models and scenery.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Without wishing to look like a complete idiot, how did you manage to set them at such an angle?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'd love to see these things treat with a little stop action tech. That'd be a kick ass youtube video.
