Originally a themed miniatures bases company, War Cast Studios has changed direction from designing themed bases to sell to the hobby market, to custom terrain work. If you are looking for our bases, please contact us.
These desert-stepped hills where created using a rotocast machine. Since these machines are on the pricey side, we decided to build out own rotocast machine which was a fun project in itself. The reason for a rotocast machine, is that it allows you to use less plastic, creating a hollow model.
The masters were created using wooden dowel and some thin plastic styrene sheets. The wooden dowel was slightly beveled on a disc sander which gave the barrel its classic tapered shape at the top and at the bottom.
This jungle farm is set in the 17th century and was commissioned for Firelock’s Blood and Plunder historical pirate miniatures game. It is a 4’x3′ demo board that separates into two pieces. When separated, this board forms a crate that is 2’x3′ and 1′ thick. Is was very similar to that of a large suitcase.
