This week I'd like to share with you a few photos of my modern city terrain, specifically the resin vehicles from Antenocitis Workshop which I put the finishing touches on this week.
I know a lot of people use toy cars for modern scenery, but for me there is something about painted resin that fits better in the world because of the way it blends in with everything else. They also have a nice solid weight to them and they are perfectly scaled for use with 28mm-32mm minis.
Here we have the "Crapi Mechanics" car which can be modelled with the hood up or down or if you're clever you can make it do both.

Next up we have the bricked Mercedes. This one I wasn't sure about, I didn't know if I could pull off the silver look but in the end I think I'm happy with how it turned out. This one will go perfectly with some terrain tiles I'm making at the moment so pop back to see how I got on with those in a future update.
The cop cars come in a variety of styles, these ones are the old crown vics although I'm also quite keen on the camero too. I still need to sort out doing some transfers for these.
Silverager is making trouble for the local police officers.
The ubiquitous pick up truck, every city needs one, maybe more than one. The pick up is great and can be used in loads of different setup. This one is heavily rusted but I can definitely see me picking up more of these in the future to have different colours and levels of weathering.

And the newest addition to the city is the freshly finished yellow cab. This one turned out much better than I had hoped. I made the mistake of using a brush pen I had on hand at work to paint the windows. Unfortunately, every time I then added paint the ink on the windows would run. Despite that though I think this turned out great. For the chequered pattern and taxi sign I just printed the designs and stuck them on but I still think they work.
These punks are up to no good.
You can grab all these and loads more besides at Antenociti's Workshop. Like many other small independent UK miniature companies, things are a bit tight over there at the moment so if you have been thinking about making an order, please do so and help support the wonderful people who make our gaming tables so much better!
Until next time, keep on painting!
