Hirst Arts meets Dust 1947
« on: August 03, 2018, 08:20:21 pm »

I'm starting to get back into creating terrain using Hirst Arts molds. The molds allow you to cast bricks in plaster, resin, or other casting material (I tend to use Hydrostone Super X gypsum cement) that can be glued together Lego-style. Sticking to 4" base sizes, they make great Dust terrain that isn't either Zverograd or Babylon.

Small House
Very simple house with removable roof. The chimney on the removable roof acts as a target point for LoS and range.



Bell Tower
Three sections and two levels. Center section and belfry can be removed to place models inside. 2" interior size; 4" foot print.



...and for scale...

Ruined house came together quicker than I expected. Can't decide if it provides cover from two or three directions, though. Ehh...figure I can discuss it with opponent before placement.

They look great. Ideal Dust terrain. For the house I would just say it’s a cover square and provides cover from every direction!

Yeah, you're probably right. And looking back at the pics, I think I've now got a small project to do while waiting to build up enough bricks for a larger one I've started.

More terrain pics.

Everything so far


Finished ruined wall (8")
You can see on the ruined house in the background where some propaganda posters have been added.

these builds are pretty neat. and something different but nice to battle in. a whole scenario map filled with these must look very cool.
but  I absolutely love those posters. "Introverts unite...seperately in your own homes"  ;D

Yeah, I decided I wanted propaganda posters, but also wanted to have a divide between real WWII and the Weird War II of Dust. Collected a bunch of real world posters and current pop culture references. You can find my file HERE. In addition to the introvert poster and the numerous Captain America/Hydra posters, the collection includes Google Earth, Thought Police, and email  attachment warning, and the Red M&M, among others.

Meanwhile, some things I've learned for coping with the vagaries of ADHD: when you hit a creative streak, ride that mother for all it's worth; don't slow down until the next thing comes along to distract you; and don't ever regret what you get done during a period of hyperfocus, even if you regret the period ended too soon.

Here's a couple more bits of terrain added to the collection - simple 'cinder block' building and wall. Still need to build a roof for the building - it's borrowing the previous fieldstone house roof for the pics.

Cinder Block Building
Luckily, if you don't know what to look for, you don't see how I screwed up and made it a quarter inch narrower than it is long.


Cinder Block Wall
Sometimes, you don't need a fancy piece of terrain; sometimes something simple and boring suits your needs.


And the whole collection so far...
