New 10mm Sci-Fi Buildings from TTCombat

New Sci-Fi Buildings from TTCombat

Civitalis pattern buildings can be found all over the galaxy where there's been a human presence. One of the most standardised designs available to mankind the origins of the pattern are lost to time, some say that humanity has always had the knowledge to build these buildings while others state, quite clearly that there's no evidence of these buildings existing before the 2nd millennium.



Even war torn futures need somewhere to buy commodities, like combat knifes, relic toasters, or holy maintenance oils for your bed springs. While that may not be much of an issue to those piloting war machines that tower over buildings, its nice to know that even if your planet is getting invaded, virus bombed or its just another Thursday afternoon there's always a bottle of non-person powered dairy substitute waiting for you. With a set of billboards and rooftop walkways the Commercia Civitalis provides great areas for your more modest war machines to take cover from the bigger, angrier war machines that want to stomp them into the dirt. Easy to assemble, even without glue, you'll be able to get a table built in no time!

Made from 3mm MDF this kit is perfect for games of Adeptus Titanicus, but will work perfectly with any similar scale games.


Every city needs to have good medical services, especially in war torn futures, where walking to work can result in sudden evisceration by any number of alien species. The medicae civitalis is where miracles happen, stitching people back together, patching up wounds and kissing boo-boos, you're sure to get better in no time. If you're unfortunate enough to be beyond medical assistance, you can be safe in the knowledge that your body will be rendered down into its base components for easy rooftop storage and later reuse or redistribution via rooftop walkways. Easy to assemble, even without glue, you'll be able to get a table built in no time!

Made from 3mm MDF this kit is perfect for games of Adeptus Titanicus, but will work perfectly with any similar scale games.



The Domicile Civitalis is primarily used for habitation, each block able to house many dozens of workers for forges, administratums and other miscellaneous duties. Able to be connected to the other Civitalis buildings with the included walkways you can make sprawling interconnected hives. It's L shape provides great cover for smaller war machines and plenty of roof space for troops. Easy to assemble, even without glue, you'll be able to get a table built in no time!

Made from 3mm MDF this kit is perfect for games of Adeptus Titanicus, but will work perfectly with any similar scale games.



Giant stompy war machines don't really need moral support when undergoing maintenance, but that never stops anyone who believes hard enough that they do. Designed to cradle war machines while they undergo maintenance and repairs the Shrine Mechaninca features multiple inner levels with the optimal amount of safety equipment. The top level allows someone with a loud enough voice to yell sermons and offer prayers to the war machine below from the safety of a reinforced pulpit, or retire to a private tower to consult their maintenance manuals, surely filled with notes on the correct verses to chant when changing spark plugs.

Designed to block line of sight to even the biggest of war machines the Shrine Titanica works great with your games of Dropzone Commander or Adeptus Titanicus.

Made from 3mm MDF and 1mm greyboard, this kit is perfect for games of Adeptus Titanicus, but will work perfectly with any similar scale games.



Now a shell of its former self the Administratum Decimus is a stark reminder that war cares not for bureaucracy. Once an imposing building the Administratum stands crumbling in the face of giant war machines, legions of tanks, and countless genetically engineered super soldiers. In it's prime this building managed to house over 700 staff and was able to approve a whopping 3 planning approvals, 2 material transfers, and calculate tithes for a planet of over 12 billion people.

The Administratum Decimus is a great building to hide your war machines behind, standing almost 13cm high and 14cm square it provides great cover for your games of Dropzone Commander or Adeptus Titanicus.

Made from 3mm MDF and 1mm greyboard, this kit is perfect for games of Adeptus Titanicus, but will work perfectly with any similar scale games.

The Dash With The Colours!

As it will soon be the anniversary of the battle of Isandlwana we have added this miniature of Lieutenant Melvill trying to escape with the colours of the 24th regiment to our 10mm Zulu Wars range.

Teignmouth Melvill

On 22 January 1879 after the disaster of the Battle of Isandlwana, South Africa, Lieutenant Melvill made efforts to save the Queen's Colour of his Regiment. He and Nevill Josiah Aylmer Coghill were pursued by Zulu warriors and after experiencing great difficulty in crossing the swollen Buffalo River, during which time the Colour was lost and carried downstream, the two men were overtaken by the enemy and following a short struggle both were killed. The Colour was retrieved from the river ten days later.

CMP Lorry Master from Arrowhead Miniatures

The CMP lorry master with both cab types side by side. We had a terrible time finding reliable drawings of the type 11 cab but won out in the end.

Canadian Military Pattern (CMP) trucks were a class of military trucks, made in large numbers, and in numerous variants, by Canada during World War II, to British Army specifications, primarily intended for use in the armies of the British Commonwealth allies.

Scorpion & Scimitar from Aotrs Shipyards

Aotrs Shipyards is a webstore on Shapeways.com, a 3D print house which had production and shipping facilities located in the USA and the Netherlands. Aotrs Shipyards also takes direct printing commissions.

Starting off the new year, we have the first of the CV(R) T's the Scorpion and the Scimitar at 144th. As is the case for all the new models, both feature the new locking turrets.

We have now reached the end of the pale grey material, and I have taken the opportunity to run off a model (of the forthcoming 144 scifi Phystyulon ground force) in the grey, the blue and the brown material, so we can see how they compare (especially for the photos).

Any thoughts on which one is best?

Next month will most likely be the Iltis; in the pipeline in the Saracen (partly why I did the CV(R) Ts) and the Saracen.

Break Ground with Us on the South Carolina Liberty Trail

Something is missing from our Revolutionary history.

When many of us think of the American War for Independence, George Washington, Boston or the winter at Valley Forge might come to mind. Yet military operations in the Southern Colonies were just as critical to the course and outcome of the war as those in the Middle and Northern Colonies.

Which brings me to South Carolina. Many of the most significant battles of the American Revolution were fought amidst its farms, forests, swamps, mountains, cities and towns. Yet far too few Americans know about this history  and even fewer have experienced these hallowed places firsthand.

We've joined forces with the South Carolina Battleground Trust and the National Park Service to make this right. Thanks to the invaluable support of generous modern-day patriots like you, we have already started preserving battlegrounds across the state. We're also using cutting-edge technology to tell the stories of some of Revolutionary South Carolina's most pivotal people and places. Named in recognition of the role this chapter of history played in securing America's independence, The Liberty Trail will be an experience people can enjoy virtually or as a self-paced driving tour.

Located on the road between Camden and Charlotte, Hanging Rock is one of 16 primary battlefields selected for the initial phase of the Liberty Trail. It was the most northerly of a series of outposts the British established to control the South Carolina backcountry after the August 1780 Battle of Camden.

Of the Battle of Hanging Rock, noted 19th-century historian Lyman Draper later wrote that "Cornwallis was heard to say that no battle fell heavier on the British, considering the numbers engaged, the Battle of Bunker Hill excepted."

The fighting began early on the morning of August 6, 1780, when Colonel Thomas Sumter led approximately 800 Patriot militia to attack a force of about 1,400 troops at the British outpost at Hanging Rock. The 2.4 acres we hope to save is in the footprint of the attack on Loyalist militia that began the battle. Patriot Colonel William Hill reported that the "action commenced under many unfavorable circumstances … as they had to march across a water course & climb a steep cliff, being all this time under fire." Despite these challenges, the Patriot force routed both the Loyalists and a camp of British regulars before the British got their bearings and reorganized to defend themselves.

After a three-hour battle, Sumter withdrew his men, leaving roughly 200 British casualties to the Patriots' 53. In part due to the lopsided casualty figures, Hanging Rock is considered a Patriot victory which served to further embolden Patriot efforts against the British.

My friend, for just $16,651 we can forever preserve a crucial part of the Hanging Rock battlefield. And to help us get there, one of our donors who is passionate about preserving battlefields of the Southern Campaign has agreed to match all gifts up to $5,000.

But your contribution to Hanging Rock isn't just about these 2.4 acres. Your support is critical to build momentum on development of the Liberty Trail and  do justice to this largely forgotten chapter of American history.

Don't miss this amazing opportunity to become a "trailblazer" for South Carolina Revolutionary history education and preservation. Please make a tax-deductible gift to preserve Hanging Rock today.

Doing justice to South Carolina's Revolutionary history will be a marathon, not a sprint. Start training today by reading more about plans for the Liberty Trail.
