Model Making

I've been into model making for as long as anyone can remember and over the years I’ve delved into various different genres of it. However much of my work has been with wargames terrain.

I’m not an avid wargamer but the things that appeal to me about making scenery for it are:

Firstly that it lends itself to small projects. That’s because, from a gaming point of view, it’s good to be able to arrange things differently each time you play. Of course it also means that the models will fit reasonable easily onto shelves or into boxes for display/storage.

Secondly because it provides an opportunity to model fantasy and sci-fi subjects… and I do have a penchant for those. So while most other genres of model making are about making things that are either functional (RC cars, aeroplanes, scale engineering, etc) or as accurate and lifelike as possible, making wargames terrain provides an opportunity to really indulge the imagination.

Since 2006 I’ve been the owner/administrator of TerraGenesis, a resource and community for people who are into making model terrain. It needs to be reworked and updated but there’s a lot of useful and inspiring information over there.

Many of the terrain models shows below also appear on TerraGenesis with more pictures and details of how they were made.

Other Work

Although most of my endeavours of late relate to jewellery making, I have worked, and continue to work, in other areas. If you enjoyed this page, you might find some of these interesting:

PLEASE NOTE that some of the above are a work in progress, out of date, and missing links to sub pages, as a result of the reconfiguration of this site. I intend to fix this, but it's not paid work so it's happening as and when I have time. Ask me if there's something in particular that intrigues you. :-)
