Tau City Defense Base for Planet Strike

Postby Shas Zam » Sat Aug 15, 2009 4:02 pm

This is a project I started way back earlier this year with the lower half of the Bastion w/Bunker Annex. Some of you may recognize the Bastion w/Bunker Annex from the Crisis Potty photos. Anyway, a couple of months ago, I got back into the project and developed a few more elements...The Defense Pods are essentially hills with the halves of a CIS Tank Droid to cap them off and provide weapons mounts and a fox hole kind of thing...

To be added: Rail Guns for the Defense Pods, a defense line, a few more Bunkers/Buildings and a ruined Hanger. I've got some of it painted in this awful creme color for now, but I'll be shooting more for an Ord Mantel/Tattooine feel when it's all done. The lore is that this is an outer rim colony/outpost under constant attack by Orks, IG and what have you...maybe a Farsight Enclave or some such.

3" diameter card rolls (the kind that butcher paper comes on), 5mm foam board and 1.5" thick sheet foam. The Comms Tower got details courtesy of the same Droid Tank that lent its bits to the Defense Pods.

I plan to do a "step by step" with the additional Hanger/Bastion but rather than post pics as I go, I'll post the whole article once the project is done.

Yeah, that's a running joke in my games...when I used to play Knight Hawks and Mekton, any time there was some minor damage results...the system damaged was the latrine. The Crisis Potty, a Group Build entry, was a natural to include in this set of terrain.

Thanks, and will do...the forthcoming week will be filled with...(cue ominous music)...work...but I should have quite a bit to share throughout.

If there were a way to delete "orphaned topics" I would like to know. This project has been put on hold in favor of making some real money to fund it. Thanks for visiting.
