FREE Dave Graffam Miniatures Terrain Paper Model: Observatory


Enjoy this cool new FREE model from the minds of Thomas Weaver (AKA Tommygun) and Dave Graffam . Tommy’s geometry combined with Dave’s textures give you something fun and unique to add to your fantasy, medieval or steampunk games.

The Observatory is designed to work stand alone, or as an add-on to Dave’s upcoming Inventor’s House model, so if you’re planning to pick that one up, this is a great way to get started on it.


REBEL MINIs purveyors of fine 15mm and 6mm miniatures is branching out into the SUPER HERO 15mm Niche !!
REbel Minis 15mm Greens

From their blog:

This week we are going to show some greens from two new categories we are starting. Our main focus is always 15mm sci-fi and modern/horror, so to change things up a bit and for some new experiences, I am glad to announce these new categories.

15mm SuperHeroes and Villians
We don’t have a name for these guys yet, but we will have some soon. My background is in comics so I have always had a warm and fuzzy for the whole comic books scene. These are sculpted by an amazing sculptor named Pierre Francois Jacquet. They kick-ass.

We have not decided who is a good guy and who is a villian. It is tough choose. If you guys have any suggestions.. let us know! I’ll also have a scenario later for Supers vs Zombies.
