Use Styrofoam. It’s light, you can carve it with a bread knife, and takes latex paint well. Go to any insulation supplier and ask if they have any broken sections. They can’t sell them so they’re just waste.. I use them for my train layouts.

I am open to any ideas except model railroads and cooking. I really like jellyfish though but do not really want to use them as my collection.

do yourself a favor and check out twohourwargames.com a vastly different style of game that allows you to use any miniatures. I still like the warhammer 40k novels but GW sort of forces you to keep buying new versions of rulebooks and codex’s everything is top dollar and on and on and yes on.
If you don’t keep buying these new rulebooks (interesting that 20+ yrs and they still haven’t come up with something to stay with. Their minis are cool but expensive and now days there are 100’s of great miniature artists.

If you don’t keep buying these new rulebooks (interesting that 20+ yrs and they still haven’t come up with something to stay with) you wont know what the rules are now . Their minis are cool but expensive and now days there are 100’s of great miniature artists.

Check out this game instead it costs less is easier and cooler you don’t need as many miniatures so you can get some of each and easily play solo;co-op or head up. You can also search the web and see how many other cool mini’s are out there equally as nice and cheaper. I used to play Britonians and Skaven but experience has taught me better If you knew all the evil that GW has done in the past to there fans who need a WIDE open wallet all the hassles that they now put their distributers through (the people who built the empire for them have become 2nd class now that they have their own stores.
Whatever you choose to do; Happy Gaming!!

what is a good website for HO model train layout ideas?

Question by Brenden: what is a good website for HO model train layout ideas?

I have 2 HO scale train sets a union pacific one and a santa fe one. they are made by athearn i believe. i have 2 switch tracks stupidly i bought both of them left so the turn to the same side. i also have about 33 curved tracks, and around 20 straight tracks (9″ in length) and i cant figure out what type of layout to make. i dont have DCC and that makes it harder. not only that but whenever i listen to my brain I end up not liking it because i feel it has to have scenery to be good which i know isnt true. does anyone have any good layout ideas?

Answer by AJ
Layout ideas… A good website is Atlasrr.com. They have track plans for sale at their store right now. But if I were you, I would just go with what your mind says. I did that and love my layout. I would also just make a bunch of wierd curves. It gives realism and makes it fun. I would use all straight track and have 10 and 10 on each side. Because you have two left hand switches, I would just make them into industrial leads/sidings or even a small yard.
