Aspern-Essling commission. Building base 2 Finished

Well, I did intend to do another couple of wip posts for this but obviously never got round to it. Never mind, here it is in all it's glory.

Construction was mainly card, balsa and acrylic with a few other materials here and there for smaller details (like the main door). The base size is around 400mm x 280mm and the tallest points is about 270mm.

The clock face is taken from one in Prague but there are similar ones all around Germany/Austria and the date is pure conjecture.

On to the photos

Post Salute

Well, a big thank you to all those who came by our stall at Salute the other Saturday. We had a great day and hope you did too :-)

I'm currently casting like mad to re-stock the catalogue but I've also had time to finish off a couple of masters. For now there's a new Japanese village building (JV09 - £17.50) and a new Chinese house (CR04 - £22.50). They will be moulded next week and release at the start of next month.

I'm also working on some new 15mm buildings for both the Japanese existing range and a new Chinese range. They will basically follow the 28mm catalogues in terms of what's coming out.

Plenty of commission work on at the moment as well which will be shown from next week once I'm done casting. For now here are the pictures of the new releases.

Chinese walls

Just a quick post tonight. I've finished off some more Chinese walls and they are now in the catalogue and will be available at Salute (trade stand TL20).

After Salute I'll be looking at expanding the 15mm Japanese ranges along with starting the 15mm Chinese ranges... Watch this space (along with Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and the LAF lol).

The new additions are a ruined section, a moongate, a half length section and a pair of columns.

Salute 2018

Salute is nearly upon us again and I've been bust getting things ready (and hence the lack of posts).

OSHIRO modelterrain is trading again and the trade table number TL20, pretty much in the same place as last time. Unfortunately there's no game this year but I m planning several smaller participation games for next year... Watch this space.

We/I am accepting pre-orders for Salute as though we will be carrying stock it's always better to order before the day to avoid disappointment. Use the info email to the left and drop us a line.



I've been working on several new ranges and items for existing lines recently and photos of these are below. I'll also do a couple more posts in the next couple of weeks in the lead up to the big day.

First off we have the start of a new sci-fi range beginning with the Additions. I'll be moving onto vehicles, buildings and small craft in the coming months (a couple are already being developed).

Sci-fi range



Next up is a range of near future/contemporary additions which again, like the sci-fi range, will have vehicles and larger items and potentially buildings.

Urban Future range


And of course we have the Japanese releases. They are not up on the website yet but they will be later in the week.

First off is a blacksmiths for the village range, JV07 and it's £27.50



Next we have some rural temple buildings (for those that don't really need a whopping temple complex on the table). At the moment there is a gateway, reading room and handwash station. I am currently working on the temple proper and when it's ready there will be a set available that will include the gateway, two reading rooms, the temple, the handwash station and the temple offering that's already available. The gateway is £30, the reading room is £25 and the handwash station is £10. Not surre on the price for the temple and set as of yet.










And finally for this post there's a generic building that could either be used for a village or a yamashiro barracks. £15 for this one and again it'll be added to the website later in the week.



That's it for now, plenty more going on for Salute, more of which in a few days.
