I'm trying to make stuff in 10mm. Boards, minis, conversions using my daughter's toys once she loses interest. I like the idea of compact games that take little space and investment.

It would be as easy as pie if I had a 3d printer but I have no space, no money and no time for that.

Now I'm not saying that I will buy everything and anything (because, you know, the whole no money thing), but if someone has a cool toy or something and would like to share a photo for inspiration, or maybe see it used in a someone else's project, then feel free to share here.

Not sure where you are in the world but what you need is “Zero Hour”.

It’s a toy line from the late 80s/early 90s and came with little 10/15mm figures. Therefore all of its stuff is in that scale.

Buildings, vehicles, crates, barrels, monorail.

It’s also remarkably cheap to get a lot of second hand. I guess it was never one of the big favourites.

Here’s an eBay listing:

Awesome suggestion, thanks.

Similar to Zero Hour (i.e. that reminded me) is Manta Force:

Soooooo...so so so...

I got hold of some of our old toys that think would look cool as terrain / mega vehicles.

One example of which is...

Does anyone know if this would be valuable. I don't know how to start looking. Not that I want to sell it but I also don't want to tear it apart if someone would love it.

I am thinking of an ash wastes crawler and replacing the little wheels with hydraulic mounted tracks (using these as a base).

That’s Thorhammer from the Mega Force line by Kenner.

It also seems to be missing quite a few bits.

I had Ram Fist (Why that name Kenner??!!) back in the day and a few smaller vehicles. What I remember was they were perfect size for Epic scale vehicles and the little ones were made of metal!! Micro Machines also did a tank line that I often Co-opted into Space Marine too. 😂

I don’t think that’s partially sought after or expensive, I did a quick check and you can buy a few on eBay so… just make use of it.

If anything, look up more Mega Force stuff, it’s another forgotten toy line that no-one particularly seems to want.

Perhaps @CaptainDangerous would consider selling the rest of the stuff on Yaktribe instead of ebay to earn some bonus yak points*

*note that bonus yak points does not equal votes
