Thrift Store Find...Terrain Build
« on: August 05, 2020, 02:06:03 AM »
Was at the local thrift store and came across a broken Star Wars Jango Fett ship for 50cents.  Couldn't pass it up and decided to make some 15mm terrain from it.

That’s some very good usage of bits of kit.
They’ve come out great.
You should be proud of them.

I'd love to see some 15mm minis in there, so we could judge the scale a bit more.

They look fantastic. You have skills (and possibly patience) I never possessed. Lovely!

I appreciate the comments.  Its the first time I've posted any of my work on the site.

Supervike, I'll see about getting a shot of minis on the terrain to give a better sense of the scale.

That is some really inspired recycling.

Great looking terrain and all the better for being up-cycled.
