Industrial Containers

It is always good to have plenty of scatter terrain, small bits, medium bits and big bits. These containers fit in the medium category I reckon.

The first containers I made were simple boxes that stacked and are designed to complement the Industrial Terrain range.

I wanted the next one to be a bit different, with a central core surrounded by a reinforced girder structure. This picture below is a prototype that was a bit hard to build so I had to tweak it a bit.

The latest creation is this container below that has working doors, I am really pleased with it. I need to get a few more cut and paint them up. Of course with opening doors, I will have to paint the inside as well…

It will be perfect for zombies to hide inside…

Gap Gizmos

Warcry and Ragnarok have a variety of weapons available that have various close combat ranges between 1″ and 4″. Sometimes getting a ruler into a tight space can be tricky, so I have made some measuring sticks that allow an easy access between models.

One version has a 1″ and 2″ measuring widget and a second version has a 3″ and 4″ measuring thingy.

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 bottle lids with mdf bits inserted.

For a bit of variety, I have made some raised sections, particularly good as a landing pad for a really big ship.

There are also some very long walkways, a great idea and they look great, but models tend not to move very far during a turn, so I can see a squad being left out on a walkway and vulnerable to enemy fire.

The large X piece below is another experimental design for linking ground sections together.

The next set of industrial terrain pictures will be of a 150 Power per side game, Death Guard against an aliance of Grey Knights and Blood Angels.

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…
