Spring is Coming

Okay so Spring is coming and here's a source for something free, Polyvinyl styrene signs that if you know someone, or make a contact at Home Depot. You could score their used signs, similar as the one pictured below

The ones they use in the store are of cardboard but the ones that they use outdoors are a polyvinyl styrene of some kind you can scribe them and they will snap off at the scribe line. They have other similar signs that one might be able to get as well, when they reset a display some are thicker then others, may take you awhile to score those but hey you can get them for free.

So get to know someone in their Outdoors Lawn and Garden. I have stacks of their used ones as of now, and can't wait for Spring to get going with gluing and painting

Storage Tanks

Just another thing that will work for the gaming table PVC pipe caps as storage tanks

The tops can be found rounded like these showed here or flat as well, add some wire for pipes and other fittings paint and your good to go

You can make them look a little taller just by adding a stub of PVC pipe in them as if they were on a stand of sorts

Glue two together and they can be tanks laid on their sides just add stands, and you can get them in almost any size for you gaming needs,

I will be using them as storage and fuel tanks for my ship projects

Sci-Fi Beds, Tables or Roof Top Stuff

I came across some plastic furniture plugs the other day at my local junk store, when the thought hit me these little guys would be great for beds for Sci-fi terrain in just about any setting, the added benefit is you can get them in almost any size as well as most shapes rectangle, square, round and oval.

They can be 6mm buildings, or 15mm terrain stuff as well as 28mm stuff,
So here's the list of some ideas,

  • Beds.
  • Tables.
  • Roof Top Vents and decor.
  • Exam Tables.
  • Medical Beds for sick bay.

Turn them over and they can be,

  • Bath Tubs.
  • Planters
  • Aguaponic Pools
  • Vats
  • Fountains
And the list of ideas goes on.

Now run out there and make some cool stuff for your gaming table.

Ships Computer Idea

Needing a lot of ship's computers, for 15mm for my ship idea and project. I came across CAT 5 male connecters that have a sort of  large wall computer look and found that I can get 25 per pack at Home Depot for about 10 dollars.

That a lot of computers for most every ones needs.

Of course they don't have to be just for ships, they can be use for any of your computer needs as well, on your gaming terrain
