Some shipping container scatter

 A lazy bank holiday weekend doing some shipping container scatter terrain. I (like many projects) started these a while back…

So, as you may have noticed me mention, space is a limiting factor in all things, no space for any fancy tools especially, so ordered a load of mdf bases in various sizes from eBay. I could have gone foam core, but precise flat edges to mass produce a series of boxes was decidedly meh. The bases allowed a series of boxes, with 2mm foampvc for the sides which would give a slightly taller profile… if I hadn’t then proceeded to apparently keep the foampvc as the base. It’s not really noticeable in the grand scheme of things, just a thing I’d planned to take into account and then didn’t.

The frames were clad with corrugated craft card and the edges were done with L plastic strip. Didn’t have enough to do the seven I made so we’re down to six for now like some shite reality show.

Doors still to be done. These will mainly be for Dredd so they don’t need to be realistic really so may go do some kind of keypad. But some scatter suitable for modern onwards…

must be a blue moon…

 … as apparently I painted something!

OK, I did these back in June I think but didn’t add the grass and tufts until this weekend gone. It’s been quiet over the summer though, job is knackering me and free time is limited. The heat didn’t help. But I did eke some stuff out, including some bark rocks and these fellas… werewolves and a changeling for The Silver Bayonet.

3D prints from Etsy, lovely minis. They’re about the height of a Perry human so not too massive, although I’ve based them on 30mm bases.

The changeling is also a 3D print from Etsy, some kind of Wood Elf creature I think. I absolutely love it and figured it could pass as a changeling as described in the rules, with a more natural magic feel to it. Slender but perfect for a 25mm base.
