A bit of terrain

This morning I painted up a piece of terrain for my 40K table, a ruined habitation pod from Sarissa. A nice piece of kit, and very affordable (especially considering shipping to Japan), as all Sarissa kits are.

I’m a little leery about how it’ll stand up to gaming – that strut across the top especially is pretty flimsy – particularly since I’ll be throwing it in a box and bringing it to game day each month. But oh well, it’s purty! I also have a non-ruined version of the same hab pod, which I’ll get to work on after doing a few more marines.

At the moment, that’s all the science-fiction terrain I have at 28mm. I have lots and lots of terrain at 6mm for Epic, some of which – trees and hills and such – can be pressed into service for 40K, and a few bayou-themed buildings for Malifaux that I could use in a pinch, but really I have a ways to go before I’ll have a nice tableful of terrain for 40K.

In other news, the new marine pre-releases are up this weekend, and I was semi-surprised to see that the Intercessors and Hellblasters aren’t a dual-build kit. Ah, well, I could use a full squad of Intercessors anyway. I imagine that’ll be my next purchase after I get the half-a-starter-set I have coming, just so I have have plenty of troops.
