So, here's a simple Sewer Rat Stratagem I "converted."
I call it, "They're over th..."
It's pretty easy, really.
The IG is assembled using bits from IIRC, an IG Basilisk crew.
He's standing on the interior detail of a Chimera door. When I assemble my tanks that will not be opening, I NEVER include ANY of the interior detail. Why should I? it's not like it'll ever be seen. Plus, it helps my bits box to swell.
The door piece was put in place, and a Chaos Chainsword arm was put in there. Once I had the placement right, I put a couple drops of glue on the inside of the door detail (hidden underneath) to keep it in place. Once THAT was dry, I glued the arm in place.
After everything had time to set, I glued it to a piece of plasticard that was precut just SLIGHTLY larger than the piece. When THAT was dry, I used my exacto knife to trim the plasticard flush with the edges... I wish, now, I'd left it larger so I could have built rubble up along the edges easier.
C'est la vie.
Finally, I used the same method with a piece of magnetic photo backing (available at Walmart). This stuff is sticky on one side. Typically, it is used to attach to the back of a 4x6 photograph to make it a refrigerator magnet. This was done in case I ever get around to making those magnetic storage bins. It'll keep it from sliding around.
The image isn't the best. The background was too shiny & caused a little white-out scenario. I had to manually tweak the image to make it darker to help the details emerge. Of course, that affected the quality of the image overall.
I'd love to hear some feedback on this.
Nice....very nice...Well done :yes:

I like. This is a nice little marker for the sewer rats stratagem. It looks pretty cool, and has a humerous edge to it - good combination
The chimera door works well in this role; it gives the guardsman an interesting surface to stand on. The chainsaw arm reaching out of the sewer adds that humerous quality, and lets you know exactly what the marker represents.
Concerning putting rubble on the base - I don't think it needs it. Just a few bits and pieces on the flat areas of the base and it'll be more than ready to paint. Good work mate.
Hey. Thanks for the kind words.
Essentially, that's what I want to do (with the rubble).
it would have been easier, had I left the plasticard larger, as the rubble could have been glued to it easily.
I may remove the magnet & put another piece of plasticard (larger) on the bottom to accomplish this.
I have a few more I'll post over the days. Five, to be exact.
I have some interesting "booby traps" too.
