Welcome to Silo 1313
My hope and intentions are to inspire those to create gaming terrain for SCI-FI Wargaming and RPG Gaming in 15mm using old school modeling of wood, paper, wire and any other everyday items.
Helpful hints for those of us who are on a limited budget, Plus talk about games I enjoy playing.

Barge Town Update #1
Haven't had much time due to work but plugging away at it with what time I do have.
I did manage to make a couple of gangways and a floating docks
Here's a few pictures of the gangways that would be used to move from barge to barge
This one is just made of square wood stick and coffee stir sticks
This one is made from square wood sticks a section of window screen and cereal box card board, the screen is sandwiched between the wood and the card board, I first made the wood frame then traced the outline of it to the cardboard then cut that out, then just sandwiched it all together.
Wood round dowel used as floats and coffee stir sticks as planking make for the floating dock in the middle ground between the boat and the barge
That's the small stuff for now but have been working on a flat bottom river boat!
The main body is foam core board the basically skinned with card board from a cereal box. As you can guess from the picture I plan to make a couple more river boats.
Here's a shot of the wheel house.
The river boat will work out great not just for this project but for other games as well.
Okay that's all I have for now but still plugging away.
