Space Hulk Nano(+Pics back up)
« on: April 24, 2016, 09:02:20 PM »
Well I've finally done it!

I built myself a complete set off 6mm Space Hulk tiles and airlock doors.

And here they are...



Construction was fairly simple, just granny grating cut to size and glued onto magnetic paper so I can play on a metal surface and things won't slide around.

The little square inset tiles are also made of magnetic paper and as the minis will also be based on the same stuff the whole thing should be pretty stable on the go.

Here's a few pics of the first mission layout to give you an idea what a game would look like.








The minis are place holders untill I recieve my order from Onslaught Miniatures who were kind enough to put together a custom Space hulk pack for me from there awesome Sisterhood and Legion lines.


As these pictures are all a little dark I decided to pop a tile and some doors into my mini lightbox for a clearer look.




Now I still need to make some 3D flame tokens and find a nice way to make good looking magnetised blip counters that are easy to pick up and move around, any and all ideas are welcome.


Ok thats it for now, hopefully I'll have some pictures of the painted miniatures for you soon.


Cheers,
Stroezie.

Bloody brilliant.

For blip counters.....bit of round plasticcard, with a part of a pin plus pinhead in the middle, painted green-glowish?

Nicely done. Had to google "granny grating", but it's been nicely used. No idea on the blip counters.

For those who can't ID them, the doors are wire nails used to secure coaxial cable to walls and ceilings. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes.  This is a brilliant use of them.

Very nice work. It has me thinking of a travel set of something skirmish you in 6 or 10mm.

I have used these on a few desert type buildings. The column element suggests a StarbWars Mos Eisley vibe to me. Having seen these pics though I realised that if you like a symmetrical door, they can be sliced in half and the separate parts from the different pieces joined together. I must finish those buildings!

I used them as the feet of park benches.  Just slap a length of cardstock or popsicle stick across the top, paint gray, and you're done.

Handy tip. What a versatile piece of plastic!
