I just came across some of my old 40k minis & decided to see how they looked in a Sci-Fi master maze setup.

Pic 1 - A squad of Marines explore the barren passages of a derelict space hulk.

Pic 2 - The passage opens out into a larger area & the marines spot movement in the shadows...

Pic 3 - ...Space Orks!

Meanwhile in another part of the ship...

Pic 4 - A brood of Ork-Genestealer hybrids seeks out intruders...

Pic 5 - ...and ambush a group of tech priests in search of long lost mechanical knowledge

Pic 6 - An Inquisitor faces off against the hybrids, unaware that one of their foul number is behind him about to pounce from the shadows.


Drom.

Drom -

Kewl!!
Just as a nosy, where'd you get that sidewall console in Pic 3, there at that diagonal wall?
I'd like to pick up a few bazillion of those, just as 'toss around' furnishings!

See ya!

Excellent use of Science Fiction Master Maze and GW minis!
Hope you had fun playing the game.
Grenades can become an incredibly useful weapon within enclosed spaces; far more than they are in open spaces.
Play on.

This is cool. I'm surprised that we haven't seen more Alien type settings with the DF sci-fi. Genestealers, Space Marines, etc.

Thanks guys, glad you liked the pics.

It was a fun little game. I've found that this scenery works really well for 40k skirmish games. It takes me back to my early days of playing game after game of Space Crusade with my friends.

Jim: That console is available in vast numbers from your local supermarket (well parts of it are at least). I made it myself from those little plastic covers you find on disposable razors. (A few weeks ago I decided to start hoarding them in the hope that I might find a use for them one day.)

The console is just two of the covers superglued together & spraypainted grey. The detail on the top surface is a simple little design I drew in CorelDraw, that I printed out onto an address label & stuck on. Here's a close up pic.

The other two pics are other uses I found for the plastic covers. They do a passable job as seats/benches. The first pic is just one of the covers on it's own while the second pic uses three covers for each seat.

They would probably benefit from a decent paint job, but unfortunately my enthusiasm for the project died as soon as they were completed to a very basic level. :)

Drom;

YOU, Sir, are a genius of scratchbuilding; I bow to the master!
Whodathunk a disposable razor cover would look that good?
Too bad I use an electric. Oh well.

Hmmm. . . let me think; wh odo I know that uses a Bic?

Must. . . Concentrate . . . focus.......

Thanks, guy.

See ya!

Thanks Dante & Jim. It's taken years of practice (although a side effect of this process is piles & piles of junk that I still _haven't_ found a use for) :)
