Hey guys,

So i have started my own business,
View attachment 8620
http://hobbysupplies.flyingcart.com/index.php?p=home

im specializing in scenic supplies at the moment, just to start off with, and then i wish to move on into larger areas like tools, glues, sculpting etc.

but i have a problem, as you can see i have a limited range for now, but i would like to expand, so if there is a scenic supply that you would like, eg maybe slabs of broken concrete, or hedges and trees, put foward your ideas and suggestions.

I will give rep to any good ideas, and excellent ideas will hopefully be featured on my webpage.

I am willing to make pre made trees and hedges, and exploring resin for tree stumps and other landscaping stuff like rocks or the like.

Well I def like what you have so far, so here are my suggestions:

Larger rock type things would be nice, check the brown thing I have under my Necrotech in my Cryx log for clarification.

The concrete slabs would indeed be a nice add-on for a base

Skulls-Skulls work for everything.

Sewer pipe looking things

Barbed wire

Cork-People use cork for a lot of things I have heard

I'll drop you some more if I think of any. Good luck. Til next time

looks like there is hardly any ideas coming up? at least the ones posted are great ideas, i will definitly look into tree stumps Skartooth, and papasmurf124 i will definitly look into all your ideas apart from the skulls, mainly because it would be to hard to pull off, but all the other things should be good to have up there.

individual bitz from cities of death kits and street signs would be cool. also, specialized basing materials (like the kind in the citadel basing kit, not a whole base, but brass etch steel plating and/or grating)

good luck dude, i appreciate you making your own business; it's very admirable

I did have a think first time around, but to be honest it's difficult to think of anything that hasn't been done already. I can think of at least 1 place that does very nice wood elf style tree stump bases for example.

As long as you make good looking stuff you should get business regardless of originality. I'd recommend joining several forums and sending some free samples out to their best painters. If they use your bases/scenery and give you a mention on CMON it's bound to get you some business.

Your site is pretty well laid out too which will help, a lot of shops that sell very nice minis & scenery shoot themselves in the foot by having labyrinthe websites which are horrible to navigate.

Good luck with it :)
