15mm Ironclad Miniatures Shanty Shacks or housing in Rayonia!

Got these from Ironclad Miniatures at a show this year, not bad resin models at all, Rayonia seems to have a lot of them at the moment and listed as modern affordable housing, nothing like this in Franonia!

Put some Peter Pig figures to show size and scale and apologies again for the pictures!






The roofs come off.......

  2. Ha.. great job Fran.. looks great and indeed they must be "High class housing with water front views!".. Just need to build that waste disposal site, and the water front view can be complete ;)

  5. Great rendition of anti-social housing there!

    I'm a bit in awe actually as I got to see just how small a 15mm figure actually is... I'd have to wear both sets of glasses at the same time to paint to that standard!

  6. That truck is a living lie! It looks really cool, reminds me very much of the shanty towns. Thought without the truck, it's not like they can afford one.

  8. Looking good, Fran, and I bet you can find lots of uses for them.

  9. Never seen these before, looking good!

  10. Yeah but is that because you would rather have the poor being homeless, or are your citizens so rich they have no need of such "affordable" housing?

  11. So, the Franonian government is moving into the slum landlord business now? Eat your heart out Rackman!

    Nice stuff Fran :)

  22. Nicely done. Its good that the roof is removable

  23. Superb, they look like they are out of District 9. The ruler of Rayonia must be keeping back all the oil wealth for himself!

  24. ahahah I thought that was the whole van in the garage not just the half of it :)))

  25. Somehow I think there may be more hiding in there incase some nasty Ray guys attack.

  29. There are people living in Third World shitholes that would try and live in these even at this scale.

  32. Great work Fran, they look tremendous! Lovely to see the interior of the Rayonian royal family’s palace! :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. Rayonia is poorer than the Franonian press has let-on. Could be there is a mass exodus of Rayonians into Franonia being planned as we blog.

  34. Excellent job on that shanty town. Great job especially on the weathering.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great looking hootches; I was invited into such an abode once when I was in Thailand. Dirt floor and sunlight poking through the walls. The owner loved it. Best, Dean

  36. As always, the details are amazing! :D

  37. What the hell is that? Some kind of mobile house?

    Looks like the Battle of Bidonville is on the horizon!

  39. Very nice! I can smell prawns...

  40. My first apartment looked something like that. Except not as colorful, so frankly, I would have rather lived in these. Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Those tin shacks reminds me a bit like District 9

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oo, Oo, I knew I recognized them from somewhere. They DO look like the shacks from District 9!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've always been fascinated by miniatures but I've never seen anything like these before. They're wonderful and really do look like the shanty shacks I've seen!

  44. they look nice... if you were homeless. but as miniatures they also look good

    ReplyDelete
  45. Rayonia has very nice familiar homes...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Where is the miniature RV park to go with these shacks? And maybe a couple cars up on blocks?

    ReplyDelete
  47. They're looking good Fran. I've recently invested in some stuff as well, taking advantage of Gamecrafts 15% sale for memorial day weekend, and bought myself some sci-fi houses from their Tomorrow's war line.

  55. Reminds me of Land of the Giants. that ...i think it wsa Gerry Anderson show from the nineteen seventies. The giants were always capturing the midgets and poking them or putting them beakers. Why they were so obsessed with them is beyond me, once you seen one Christmas panto midget you seen them all.
    Great sculptures and painting, you have a gift for colour symmetry.

  56. They definitely look like des res dwellings for Rayonia (at least they didn't have shell holes like the Franonian buildings you posted earlier!)
