New Miniatures and Super Store Ideas

In an attempt to get back into the whole blog thing here is another blog post!

Last week I began talks with Crooked Dice to stock a few of their figures, 18 of them to be exact. So on the website you should notice that they are scattered around there. I am attempting to get more on the website, but that depends on companies co-operating or not. So if they don't I will move on to something else, either way, someone is getting my money haha

Here is a little promo picture I made of some of them:

On another note....

Today I spent a few hours working out how the large super store could be built. It will be constructed in a modular system, similar to the way the hospital was built in sections.

Here is a photo of what we came up with as a base plan. It measures 4 square by 5 (each square is 6" x 6").

The 4 squares on the left with the figures on represent the butcher, fish monger, bakery, and deli. Each square would be it's on area.

The top 4 squares would be a warehouse, office, and canteen area.

The other 3 square by 4 square area will be the main shop with the entrance being in the bottom right corner where the white square with the figure on it is.

So, this is quite a big building, but it's meant to be for playing games in, and not just another piece in a's going to look really cool haha

Ok that's all for now!
Comments always welcome!


  1. Looking pretty nice!!! I like the lay out.

    Good idea with getting more stuff on the store.

    1. Thanks! Yeah it took a LOT of thought, but it works out nicely :)

      Yeah I thought it's a decent way to bulk out the items on the site. It's just a shame some companies are not co-operative when you think they would be :/

  2. Sounds like a good plan, Nice to see the CD mini's on the site as well.

    1. Cheers! Yeah I thought they were pretty cool, and should help when I upload the "dalek" princess figure :)

  3. Nice job on stocking CD minis. Must mean you've made it big when you're stocking for others.
    Can't wait to see what you come up with for the mall.

  4. ha! I wish I had made it big lol I just thought it would be a good way to broaden the amount of figures on the site :)

    Oh it wont be a "mall", it's just a large food shopping centre, like walmart, although a Mall might be pretty cool.. :P

  5. The ideas for the mall sound good, any plans to do minis in 15mm (18mm)?

    1. Nah I don't plan to make anything smaller than 28mm scale. It would be too fiddly!! lol
