This is a sad story, kind of...

 

About 4 years ago I was just getting into Warhammer 40k and I was the Tau army... I decided to make a piece of terrain I could (justifiably) put in almost every scenario as a fall back point. The story behind it was that the Tau would drop it from orbit and would automatically provide cover and intel., etc. Its was only allow in large scale skirmishes - counting as points in my army. Worked great, I could fall back behind it and shoot through the one way windows and it had a drone that could detach from it and follow around if things got too harry.

 

Alas, I never finished it, what you see here is the last of it... I had to sell it... But I hope it inspires somebody! 

 

Materials: A vitamin bottle, a cap to a pill bottle, top half of an antenna, a paper clip, sand, rocks, left over spurs, left over tau mech command antenna's, and Green Stuff.

I acutally carved out a Spur pole to fit and entire rack of guns. Above is a place for pistols.

Here is the War Map  and the concept I had in mind. To the right is a helmet. I actually took a Tau head and carved it out so it looked liked a Commander took his helmet off and placed it there. Took forever to carver it out!

Hi Arc 724;

 

Very interesting and unusual sci-fi piece! You were very creative in the thought concept and execution...also very clever common items usage. Thank you for sharing your " blast from the past ".

Too bad you had to sell it.

 

It is a nice little terrain piece with a nice little story.

 

I am not a fan of the one way window firing rule but if it worked for you and your group great.

 

It Cost me points to have but when I was pushed in a corner, it was worth it, i had far less troops than everyone else but that was the strategy: to push them into a false sense of security. 

 

Thank you

      How do you make an octopus laugh?  You give him ten tickles!

      Wanted to show off this little octopus that I sculpted from some leftover green stuff.  I don't have much experience with sculpting other than a few simple embellishments on minis and a couple of snake swarms I made once.  Wanted to try something relatively simple and figured an octopus would be pretty forgiving.
       
      You can see more about how I made this guy and more of my nautical minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.

       
      I sculpted and painted this guy in two evenings and am happy with hos cute it turned out.  It's not the most accurate, but I'm proud of it.  It definitely has given me greater confidence in my ability to make something out of nothing.

      Karla, Anime Heroine https://www.reapermini.com/search/anime/latest/50232 is a beautiful sculpt, but the miniskirt would raise eyebrows in my pulp/midcentury settings, so I gave her a bit of a hemline extension with GreenStuff.  I'm also planning to use some eyelets and pins to turn at least one gun into a syringe. Will post more as progress continues. Stay safe and healthy!
