Welcome to Librarium Online!
My FLGS (where I work, part-time) had a fun competition thing this weekend to promote Planetstrike and attacking bunkers stuff. Last week I made a few bits of scenery for it and painted up a bastion. The bastion is pretty unexciting so don't look too close.
The gist of the competition was that players had 300 points to destroy a bunker and kill the squad inside and then 'claim' the bunker ruins with a Troop selection. 'twas great fun with some great moments of excitement.
I thought you kids here might like to see some of the scenery bits I made (it's not much) adn if you want maybe I'll make a wee tutorial.
Here's some pics for you-
That's the table. It was only 300 points so the small table was fine. You can see the bastion, an Aegis line, two sets of tank traps and a small minefield.
That's the bastion, defended by my stalwart Crimson Fists (who performed sterlingly).
More interestingly (I hope), here's the minefield-
This was made with a thin piece of polystyrene mounted on a sheet of plasticard, with watch batteries as mines. I got a bunch of batteries cheap at the local $2 shop (or pound-world or whatever your local cheapo store is). I'm pretty happy with the result.
Here's the tank traps-
These were slightly trickier. The base is the same plasticard with sand PVA'd on (white glue/carpenters glue). The concrete blocks themselves are made of a large button and a cork each. The cork works great as concrete, especially if you gouge at a few of them to make it look damaged.
The chains were pinned in place with loops made from bent paperclips and the chains themselves were from the same $2 shop.
It was pretty much all painted with drybrushing once dried.
Total cost was about NZ$7 (US$4 or 3GBP) plus my time (about 4 hours...?)
Hope you like them!
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Some really nice bits of scenery! I love how good the tank traps look, and the batteries make excellent mines!
The cork tank traps look good and are easy to make, like that idea! Like the battery Mines as well, nice setup!
