Ever since these were announced, I wanted them. But I didn’t have much of an excuse. They’re bulky, and I mostly play in stores. Well, the store excuse fell away. Plus they’re getting hard to find. I guess it was time!
The tiles are one-foot squares, which lines up perfectly with Fallout’s Into the Wasteland scenarios. They come as bare grey plastic, but the detail is such that they paint up quickly. I mostly followed the guide on Secret Weapon’s blog. Airbrush the ground and debris, then pigment wash in the dust. I added in some drybrushing and stippling for extra color.
Maybe I should pick up some more themes before it’s too late.
These turrets skirt the line between terrain and regular models.
The pack comes with a pair of laser and a pair of machine gun turrets. The laser turrets don’t do much for me, but the machine gun ones are just so cute.
Unfortunately the pairs are identical, including the scenic base. The machine gun ones have a ton of shell casings. Although that’s appropriate, it makes it harder to swap them. Fortunately, the tripods are equilateral triangles, so you can easily rotate to add a bit of variety.
The tripods and bodies are separate pieces, with a peg. I drilled them out and put in magnets, so they can be rotated.
