A little bit of terrain...

I'm starting a quick little project for the tabletop.

Last week at work, we received a new scanner. Now, normally I don't get to play with the new stuff at work, but when I saw the packaging I was mollified, since it had some 'unusual' shapes. After a couple of days, the packaging still had not been tossed out, so I took advantage of the situation and broke off some useful bits from the packaging.

(Stealth suit added for scale)

I sanded the bases of the 'teeth' and the sides also, and glued them down to .060" styrene sheet. Once the glue is dry (I used Elmer's Wood Glue, which takes quite a while to dry, but should be stronger than white glue) I'll add some spackle to help pretty up the base, and go from there.

Later this week-end, I hope to take some pics of No. 2 Son's 40K figures...



  1. HI there! I love the tank traps! If only all polystyrene packaging was as obliging :) I'm liking the look of the sniper drones. I should get some for my tau force. They haven't been reinforced in a while now! Have you had a chance to try them in game yet? Any good?

    p.s. I have recently started my own wargaming centred blog, so please feel free to check it out and leave your opinions. Thanks!

  2. Howdy Ben,

    Thanks for your comments... I have yet to assemble the sniper drones, maybe this week-end. Their stats seem like they would be useful especially to pick off the more heavily armored troops.

    Your blog looks great - I bookmarked it.
