Found two interesting websites
« on: July 14, 2009, 09:11:54 AM »
Take a look.

terranscapes.com

gaugemaster.com

terran has some great looking terrain and accessories

gaugemaster is a train site that also has a wargaming section

I thought the martian board was very interesting on the terranscapes site. I have some ideas for the next Talamania.

Terranscapes is expensive!
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

Makes you want to go in business and do it better/chraper.

I didn't think they were that expensive considering that the majority of their stuff is assembled and painted.  The castings are with ultracal 30 which is an expensive alternative to plaster but much more durable.  Think about how long it would take you to create the halfling house, put it together, paint and flock it.  How much an hour do you want get to paid? 

I'm actually considering starting an online terrain store using Hirst Arts but I was going to concentrate on smaller items at first, like a rock or block fence, building it in straight and corner sections then recasting it with resin and selling them both unpainted and painted.  My goal is to do pieces that would cost less than $20 even the painted ones.

Hirst Arts is one of the best terrain making systems to use. For a relatively small investment you can produse unlimited amount of terrain. I am seriously considering buying at least 2 of their moulds.

Dang!!  I saw a terrain maker site that was selling painted stuff done with Hirst Arts moulds and was good stuff.  Can't remember anything these days.
