As some of you may remember last year my Wife bought me a couple of sets of the Mantic Deadzone terrain for my Birthday (Blog post)
Now while I made a start on them and tried taking a number of shortcuts and had a major mishap I just ended up putting them aside and got on with painting something else.
That was until I saw Paul's wonderful modern adaptation of the classic GW Firebase using Mantic parts (Can be view here).
With that in mind I started on mine again, which though up another question:
Do you base your terrain?
After a discussion on the Oldhammer Facebook group I went with yes, and ordered some 2mm MDF on the recommendation of Warlord Paul.
So I got cracking and finished 1 small and 1 medium sized piece:
|Turned up the light, as they are quite dark and dirty in real life.|
Quite happy overall, teaches me not to take shortcuts and if I take the time they can and do end up nicer then expecting! I still have a rather Large Outpost, 2 Medium 1 Small and a bunch of barricades to to finish which should give me a nice but small set of terrain.
And yes... me talking about Mantic is getting a dirty habit ;)
