New MDF Container

I have a new shipping container design that I am really pleased with. It is a reinforced container for shipping hazardous type materials. The first version did not have the three braces around the middle, but it was a bit tricky to build. This one is much easier to construct and may well be available soon at Product For Wargamers.

Industrial Table

Before a planned “big 40K game” I set up all of the industrial terrain I have been building to see if anything was missing. After more than 18 months of designing, building and painting, the whole lot covered a 6×4 table and I have to say it looked pretty damn good! The dice tower is not really suitable for a large 40K game, it is better suited to Rogue Stars or Kill Team. Chucking 40 Storm Bolter dice down it just would not work. But it still works as a bit of terrain regardless of the rules system. There are loads of walkways connecting all of the towers, I have found that the extra wide walkways work best one level down from the top of a tower, makes it easier to get a hand in there to move the models around. Down at ground level, there are loads of new bits that connect the ground plates together. I have been making several different designs, trying to find one that is my favourite, so far there are a few designs that I like. This vent design below is made from a couple of plastic bot

Industrial Hanger Tower

My final new tower design (at the moment) has a vehicle hanger with a landing ledge on one of the upper levels. This is only suitable for small flying vehicles, perhaps a Bladerunner style Spinner. The tower shown here is higher than the standard three level tower so the landing ledge sits higher than the surrounding towers. Of course when next to a double height processing tower (two Pringles tubes!) then it really is not that tall…

LED Landing Pad

Over the last few weeks, I have been very busy making mdf industrial terrain to fill a 6 x 4 table. For one of the sections, I decided to add some LEDs, and make a landing platform. It seems to be a bit brighter than I thought it would be. But when a nice big flyer is plonked on it, the effect if cool with the lights illuminating the underside of the vehicle. I may well be adding some more lights…

Industrial Build Options

There are several ways to build the industrial terrain models that I have been working on as there are lots of common pieces between the various individual models. This means that I can mix up a few bits and make what is essentially a new kit. In this case, by using the support structure from the Crosswalk Tower and some round levels, I have ended up with what is effectively a pringle-less tower. Without relying on the tube, the tower can be any height, so I started with a single level and twin level model.

ROBIN This Weekend

Mr Steinberg and I are going to the ROBIN wargames show on Sunday 17th February in Nottingham. We will be setting up a table and putting on some demonstration games of Kill Team and Rogue Stars, or more likely, just hanging out. Most of the stuff, except for some of the newer prototype models are available on the Products For Wargamers, so we hope to have a table that is not too far away from the trade stand. I just need to finish some of the new prototype models off before Sunday. We are apparently not getting a very big table, so there will only be space for the industrial terrain.
