Mines, Bombs and Boobytraps

"Achtung! Minen!"

"Achtung! Minen!"

 I am in the process of assembling a lot of smaller pieces of characterful terrain to give my tabletop gaming a little more visual interest and to function as encounter markers, scenario objectives etc.  Trixie and the Zombie Crows are other parts of the same project.

With that in mind I picked up the limited editon box of Mines, Bombs and Boobytraps that GW released in conjunction with their Planetstrike promotion this summmer.  I have very little interest in ever playing Planetstrike but this little set was too cool to pass up.

 I got the lot (22 pieces) painted up over the course of an evening in front of the TV.  They provide interest on the table and look good I think.

Sin Eater Chaos Terminator Squad Romero

Squad Romero was painted in late 1999 as the ongoing development of my 40k Nurgle Chaos army, the Sin Eaters.  At the time I was playing a lot of 40k but even then, Terminators were never really that competitive a choice for the tournament games that I was playing.  I couldnt resist painting these guys up however: they are cool figures.

I bought the figures even further back than that: in 1993 or 1994.  The zombie heads from the GW sprue obviously came later than that (was that sprue released in 1999?).

Sgt. Romero is the only figure here with its original head… in case anyone was wondering.

Trixie MacGuffin

Trixie MacGuffin: Damsel in Distress

I have been putting together some scenery for gaming with recently.  Not a lot of big items, mostly just premade bits and pieces like GW craters and other similar stuff.  In particular I have been getting together some small terrain markers to serve game purposes such as enounter markers, denoting radioactive or toxic areas, scenario objectives etc, a bit like the Zombie Crows from a little while back.  Trixie above fits nicely under “scenario objectives”.

Trixie is promotional resin figure available from Ramshackle Games.  They have loads of cool post-apocalyptic stuff for good prices.  Recommended.

Warlord Titan and Imperial Navy

Traitor Warlord Titan of the ? Legion

Traitor Warlord Titan of the ? Legion

Rounding up the shots of my Epic scale stuff (for a while) are my titan and navy support units for my traitor Sin Eater space marines.  The titan and attendant navy units colour scheme is more or less an inversion of the Sin Eaters in a effort to tie them together pallete wise at least.  I never named either my traitor titan legion or this particular Warlord: I really should come up with something…

The navy units have the same scheme as the legion as they are intended to represent Praetorian or Skitarii titan legion support troopers.  The fighters and bombers are EM4 miniatures rather than “official” GW stuff, not that it matters.
