Making Mine Scenery Part XV


This week so far I have messed around a little bit more with my batch of Horizon Creation 3D bits. I liked my first attempt at fencing so I made a bunch more to start with.

A bunch of Horizon Creations 3D bits built into fencing.
The two long sections use full ~4.25"x2" hex sheets from Horizon Creations 3D, framed in with a bunch of their rivet bars. I also made a section that looked broken and repaired and a section ideal for my 4-way intersection columns.


This narrow fence support was painted exactly the same way as described in Making Mine Scenery XIV except that I chose not to go as heavy on the rust.

My newish camera phone has a better camera yet I have a harder time getting good pictures.

This is a top view of the new 4-way intersection. As you can see I made this one with some caution stripes for more visual interest.


This shot features another Horizon Creation 3D bit: one of the fences from their fence pack. I feel like the caution strip base is too pristine and needs to be dirtied up a bit, but I'll get to that later.


Before I wrap up I want to talk about where I am going with my current board plan. What you are looking at here are two horizontal straights, a verticle straight, a T section, two 4-way intersections, and my freight elevator. I want to be able to create flowing layouts that aren't too large that allow for a little bit of maneuvering, so at least one more 4-way intersection and either another T section or an L section should be up next to have my "basics" covered and give me greater flexibility. As always, there will be more to come!

Thanks for reading and make sure to check out Horizon Creations 3D and use the "BROKENCONTRACT" discount code if you decide to pick up anything. :)

  1. LOL....so technically speaking, in a modular construction what construes the difference between a horizontal and a verticle? straight. ;-)

    1. Haha. I went with that terminology because I honestly didn't know how to convey it. North-South vs East-West? I don't know. Haha. Can we get a consultation from an architect or something to clarify how I should express this idea? Hahaha. :D

  2. Nick, I just tried to order some of those Horizon Creations hex sheets and rivet bars........one pack of each ($21 is a bit pricey), but an extra $21 shipping to Europe!!!..........nice idea but not nice enough to pay that excess.

Building a Punk Venue for WitS Pt. 1

Chris from Slow Death Games/Wild in the Streets isn't going to be able to make it to AdeptiCon this year so the Breaker Press Games booth is going to be running Wild in the Streets demos in addition to our yearly introduction to Broken Contract. This means that I'm going to need suitable scenery to use for demo purposes, as well as for photos used in Tooth Chipper Fanzine. With that in mind, I looked around the internet in search of buildings that fit my vision of the hip neighborhoods I've frequented around the country as my old bands toured. Everywhere I looked, the modern buildings I was most drawn to were all from the TT Combat City Scenics line.

I looked at their entire range, and even though their old theatre, comic book store, and music shop all seemed like automatic selections, I needed to get the most bang and flexibility for my buck, so I ordered their Take Away set online, which is meant to be a stripmall with 3 restaurants in it. Eagerly, I waited for it to ar…

Three New Releases for April 2018

At AdeptiCon we debuted three new releases and they are available on the Breaker Press webstore now!
Broken Contract The Day-to-Day Starter Box This Starter Box is a revised and reimagined version of last year's starter box. The box we brought out to the world through Kickstarter last year contained a lot of stuff, but in retrospect may have been a touch overwhelming to new players. The focus then was on creating a sandbox for players who wanted to create their own characters and crews, but it was too much stuff to make a smooth introduction.
The Day-to-Day Starter Box seeks to resolve that by adding our Introductory Episode Book, The Day-to-Day and keeping the cards and models strictly to those on the sample crew rosters included in the book. The three scenarios are meant to guide the players through progressively more involved Acts, composing a mini-campaign called an Episode. 

The Day-to-Day Starter Box is the perfect introduction to the miniature game, Broken Contract. Contained…

Vision of Fire: Broken Contract Battle Report

(The following is a narrative battle report documenting a new Act called, Visual Recognition. In this Act, Black Squadron Security team up with two Recognition Drones who have the objective of capturing images of breaking miners to confirm their identities. The role of the drones is to not engage the enemy. They are there to provide visual documentation for the files of the transgressors. It was a really fun mission to play and then put into words. The Black Squadron were played by Hal, and the Knife Syndicate were played by myself. Enjoy! -Nick)

"Work Site CI08 reporting. That new guard jacked up the count. He's not sure how many slipped away while we were dealing with those other worthless breakers, but we're short several bodies."

"Understood. Don't sound the alarm just yet. We're sending over a Recognition Team, and a squad is moving from holding to section CG04 to intercept. They'll be rounded up. Hold your crew until their daily target is met. …
