Street Corner: The Streets of Arcadia

Arcadia is the name of a homebrew setting I created using the Savage Worlds system. Most of the Street Corner project is to provide figures for playing that game. Anyway, with the project finished, here are a few promised group shots before we finally part ways with these figures for a while.

THE STREETS OF ARCADIA; THE DAY IS YOUNG.
IN THE BACKSTREETS, SOME SPORTSMEN WAGER A FEW DOLLARS ON SMOKERS.
...BUT THE POLICE ARE QUICK TO BREAK IT UP -- BUT IT'S AN AMBUSH!!
THE BATTLE IS FULLY JOINED WHEN GAFFNEY AND HIS CREW UNLEASH THE HEAVY ARTILLERY.
ALL THE FIGURES FROM THE STREET CORNER PROJECT

  2. That is just fantastic work. Loving the group shots. Very inspirational for me to try putting together small "single game" sets of figs and terrain. Much to muse on.

  8. May I ask how you made the piles of newspapers on the newspaper stand.

  9. The newspapers were just a quick photoshopped front page on the end of an accordion folded strip of paper. I think I did about 25 of them and only used 7 or 8. Real easy to make! :)

  10. Awesome! you must have a pretty huge display cabinet?

  11. Unfortunately, I don't have a large display cabinet; I have a closet full of filled Chessex cases.

    I do have a shelf on which I rotate my collections. And my river steamer is its own shelf :)

    All the process was incredible!
    May I ask where did you take those cars from?
    And, if meant for playing, which set of rules will you use?

    Definetly this blog is one of my favorites!

  13. Thanks for the compliments! I'm glad you like the blog. Feel free to look around. I have posts going back four or five years.

    The cars I found at Walmart a few years ago. The manufacturer is "NM Toys," and the cars were WWII German Staff Cars. I haven't been able to find any more since I bought these.
