Default More Heavy Weaps bases and A turn counter. PIC HEAVY!!!!

Well these are still being painted but i thought i would share them with you.

Two more heavy weaps bases and a turn counter inspired by King Ulric (thx man!)


















I tried a new thing on the turn counter marine.. wanted to try to add light effects on the upper edges of his armour. not sure how effective they are but it was fun trying. paint and all that is still a bit rough especially on the bases and i have to find a spare backpack for the counter.

But thats what i have so far!

cheers

The detail is amazing, I find the checkered tiles incredibly well done.
Real good job there. Mind telling me how you did those tiles? I'm impressed.

The checkered tiles are plasticard with base coats of their respective colors and then loads of washes to dirty them up. The map is... well... a map... i cut it out of a map of Alberta hehe. I then coated it in pva glue and added markings on it to make it more objective like. Both the non rocket launcher men are magnetized for easy wound removal.

The turn counter guy is based on a large cork i found. I speared the cork onto a short flying base which grips AND allows me to turn his pointy hand to the correct cadian numbered helmet.

cheers!

I love the checkered tiles. i feel like the 1950s were invaded.

I'm glad the marine turns on the counter. I was afraid he didn't. Well done. I might makea turn outer afterthat fashion some day...

The bases are all milliput and foamcore. GW gravel on top.

Seven324: Ya the turn counter is for counting turns. Turn 1 he points to the cadian helmet with a 1 on it ... turn 2 .. you get the idea. I find it a little flashier than a turning a die to keep track of the turns

cheers!

Loving the heavy weapon bases.

Is the map design a theme park layout?
