Thanks Psullie. I don't always do a John Carpenter story for Star Wars. This was something of a change of pace for the players.

Been a while since I posted here. I've been working on urban terrain, with an eye towards using it for both Star Wars and Warhemmer 40K. See, if you scrape off the skulls and eagles you can use the same pieces for both. This first piece is a Pegasus Hobbies Power Station. My local hobby shop owner was getting rid of some of his old stuff and I got to it before anyone else. Lucky me, as these are not easy to find anymore.





Here is the ubiquitous Imperial Bastion. There were a couple skulls and eagles I couldn't get off. Well I could have but I really didn't feel like working that hard. It still needs some more dirt and grim though.



And a shot of both of them side by side.



I'm thinking about adding a raised platform under the power station. This would add height, increase the footprint of the piece, and add another level to play area. If I use the same grey for the platform that I use on may of my other building it would also unite the colors. then again I might be over thinking this.

More miniatures to come. I just need to finish the bases. Is it just me, or do bases take longer to finish them most miniatures?

Wow that is a nice repurposing of the WotC Star Wars figures. Brilliant.

I suppose they're hard to come by now..

Thank you War in 15mm and Ultravilliasmurf.
Dr. The Viking, many of the WOTC Star Wars figures are still easy to find on E-Bay. And if you're looking for the basic rank and file they're quite affordable. (Unless you're talking about the metal ones. Those are impossible to find cheap.)

More terrain. This time it's all re-purposed 40K stuff. I'll start with the Munitorum Armoured Containers. 



I shaved off all the skulls from the sides of the containers. The gothic architecture is still a dead give-away, as are the servo-skull door controls. I left the corner hawk-head hooks off them too. Means they won't stack well, but they also won't snag on gamer's sleeves while they move miniatures around. Otherwise they look pretty good. Setting this shot up gave me a couple ideas for scenarios. Looks like I'm gonna need a bunch more so I can have a proper maze.



Here are some old scatter terrain pieces. Most of these are out of the 3rd edition 40K box. I've used the barricades and tank traps many times in the past. I could never decide how to paint them, so I just used them primed black. I'm really happy with how the rust effect turned out. Now I have to avoid overusing this technique. A little rust goes a long way, even in the Grim Dark. But especially in a galaxy far, far away.



Most of the barrels are the old 40K ones. The rest are Tamiya 1/32 scale WWII models. I'm not saying they're perfect, but you have to look hard to see the difference. At table distance the differences willbe completely lost. There are 15 barrels in this shot. You'd think that would be enough, but now I want some more. It never ends. 



I probably should have posted these in my 40K thread, but chances are I will use these for Star Wars games a lot more then I ever will for 40K. (Then again, there is Shadow War: Armageddon. The distractions are strong with this one.) Let me know what you think.

I like the dirty white as a choice for colour - something different.

Thanks Von Lucky. I based them on some barrels at work.
