And I will let the dead leave, And let the dead roam the earth, And they shall eat the living, The dead will overwhelm all the living! - The Epic pf Gilgamesh
Welcome to my blog, the story of my continuing journey into the World of Zombie Wargames.
Monday, 25 February 2013
I realsied that all my pictures last week were viewed from the exit end of the supermarket, so this first photograph shows the view from the Entrance end, not much I know but it's included for the sake of completeness.
It's obvious (hopefully) as to what it is meant to be and it would have been situated opposite the tills (top left of the photo above).
It may still be added to the supermarket at some future date or held for use in some future build.
The newspapers are reduced photocopies of newspapers made about the time of Obama's November election, hence the headlines.
All the products are off-cuts of cork, cut or filed. The trays the cheeses stand on are card. The counter itself sits on two layers of 5mm foamboard, which you can just make out.
The back store shelving was made from the stuff I call "plastic canvas" available from places that sell embroidery stuff.
The supports are all matchsticks.
The final photograph, shows some of the things that I'd made, but for one reason or another, they were never included in the final model.
All the box-type packages are layers of foamboard, scored or cut with a razor saw after they'd been glued together. I more or less stuck to a rule of no more than three colours per item.
The ball with the slice cut out, is upside down and was meant as another cheese (there's another tray in the background too that wasn't used)
The newspaper was going to be left somewhere (probably for Sid to clean up), but it was left out to be used elsewhere .
The circular things are my attempts at pizzas and they'll certainly feature in the future, as will the few tins.
That's all for this week.
Comments, as always are both welcomed and appreciated.

Again mate, what you've done with this building is truly amazing! I'm definately inspired to sit down and make some more bits for my city!ReplyDelete
Thanks Save, I hope you do - and we get to see the results.Delete
I love all the detail. I can almost hear my players reading the packets and trying to work out if a soap powder would work against zombies. Fantastic work.ReplyDelete
Good point about the soap powdersDelete
That is fecking excellent, very patient work!ReplyDelete
More great work, Joe. I must admit that the photo of the packing shelves is very atmospheric and kind of creepy with the dark lighting. You can almost sense that a zombie is going to pounce on you from the shadows.ReplyDelete
I've actually got a more creepy one believe it or not, taken through the loading doorDelete
That must have taken forever! I'm mightily impressed with this stuff.ReplyDelete
Those pizzas are perfect! I love the meat counter, the silver paint on the foamcore looks just like that silver sheeting that lines walk in freezers.ReplyDelete
Thanks PS, I was pleased with the pizzas, now i just need somewhere else to sell them !Delete
Excellent. The only word!ReplyDelete
You never cease to amaze me! And you did it with cork and foam core? It really is outstanding.ReplyDelete
Yes, most of my stuff now-adays is done with cork and foamcore.Delete
