I really needed some shipping containers, more cover for models to cower behind, or use as cover as they heroically charge into combat.
Anyway, I decided to make my own. The first being a very very plain box with lines etched into the sides. But there are plans for more interesting shapes.
The Octo Container is the first interesting shape. I have finally started doing something other than a 90° angle.
The next design is something more ambitous and the one after that, well, there is much more to come in 2019…
Having time off work helps with old projects. After many months of being ignored, I am determined to finished the rather large transporter.
The exterior is pretty well finished.
I have been busy painting the interior details.
Some of which are difficult to get to.
This bit was made a an add on widget for the Industrial Control Tower, but a quick removal of the mounting tabs, and it makes a good bit of extra terrain.
I am getting to the point where my MDF industrial terrain is just about what I had in mind when I started, multiple towers, linked by walkways.
This game had three towers for the Elucidian Starstriders and the Deathwatch to do battle over, five objectives to hold for as long as possible.
The Deathwatch are an elite unit of veterans, each armed with specialist weapons and skills.
The Deathwatch Marine below has a Voidsman in his laser sights…
Joken’s entire Space Marine collection was on the table, that right, five Deathwatch models, very nicely painted.
Space Marine armour is hard to crack, sometimes even hard to hit when they are over half range and obscured.
The Starstider medic must be in the right place at the right time to be able to take a flesh wound off a friendly model, it worked once…
Finally worked out how to do melee combat correctly, Ms Vhane is a tough cookie.
Not so tough is Knosso Prond the Assassin, she took plenty of flesh wounds before getting into combat.
Only one Starstrider was out of action by the end of the four turns, models do tend to hang around in a game of Kill Team.
Vodka for me please…Cheers!
