I recently wrote an article on adding Science Fiction elements to Old West gaming, SteamPunk Old West. I wanted some vehicles to go with the Old West miniatures I was painting. Looking at the resin models from Ironclad miniatures, one that did catch my eye was the tunnelling machine.
Thinking about possible scenarios, the idea of gold mines came to me. So decided to purchase the model. Very much a Jules Verne style model it was still looked very much like it would fit into the old west environment.
It was a very clean casting and there weren’t too many pieces either.
The first task was to wash the resin, to remove any remaining mould lubricant.
