Default Tau Objective Marker/Crash Site

I'm sure most of you have seen the 'Rules of Engagement' article on the UK GW website
Rules of Engagement

Since Objective markers play an important part in this article I decided to have a crack at making one for my Tau. I wanted to create something original that I would be able to use it in normal games of 40k and use it when using the RoE stuff. So I decided to make an Air Caste escape pod crash*site using the uncrewed pod from the Barracuda.

Not only is it great for a objective marker in RoE based games, I can also use it to spruce up my battlefield should*my Barracuda be shot down*>

I also made an emergency beacon from a couple of spare Pulse Carbines and Bond-knife to add a bit of character. The pictures below show the scenery piece with one of my Tau'ri Sept Air Caste pilots.

The ejector pod is removable and can be placed in the Barracuda for scenarios where the Barracuda is used as scenery itself. Let me know what you think of this simple little piece of terrain.

pretty good; might even make a scenario out of it, like the aun rescue mission or something.

Very cool idea. I don't really like the paint job (the grass ??? in particular) but that might be in part due to the photo (did you use a flash? It looks like it).
