Objective Markers 40K

I made some markers to represent objectives in 40K battles. These are weapons and statues that the Dark Angels want to reclaim.

40K scenery: bunkers

Hi!

To play 40K you need as much terrain as possible. That's why I thought of a fast and easy way to make bunkers!

To make something like this, start with a plastic box used as packaging for fruits and vegtables in the supermarket (at our store it's a box with mushrooms):

Cut some holes in it to serve as doors and windows. Then make them stand out with strips of cardboard. Glue them on with superglue. I also made a roof and a small hatch.


Get some texture spray from the DIY shop, I used 'granite texture' from 'Brico'. Spray the in- and outside of the bunker. I used 2 coats with 24h between them.

After some touch ups with grey and black paint, you'll get this:


Enjoy!

Bretonnian trebuchet

The first (and only) miniatures that I painted this year!




It was really fun and fast to paint. The foundation washes are excellent for the brown clothes of the peasants. The warmachine is really hard to put together. My advise: make sure everything fits before you glue pieces together!

It did really well in my last battle, destroying a black coach thanks to a good hit!

First post

Hello,

I have been playing warhammer and 40K for about 6 years now. I love the game and also the modelling and painting aspect. I have a bunch of painted models, but also loads of unpainted ones sitting on my desk.

There have been 2 very basis websites with galleries of my models, but they are quite hard to maintain. This blogging site on the other hand looks very handy, but I'm not sure how good it will be as a gallery/article site.

The idea is to make a few different sections: general, galleries, articles and reports.

Unfortunatly I don't have that much time, so it will be limited to older pictures until I find more time to paint.
