10/20/15: Showcase: Bones Weapon Lockers Studio Terrain

Look, I don't need to tell you the Reaper Bones line is amazing. "Reaper's entire line in plastic AND cheap?! Count me in!" While putting around the FLGS, I noticed that they'd turned some of their terrain pieces into plastic as well. Seeing that said piece was only $3, I immediately picked it up, got home, and ordered two more! 

These paint up super quick, and work great for any game, from 40k to Warmachine, Malifaux, and Infinity! 



As you can see, they're big enough to hide a couple models behind, and stacking them creates a great defensive wall!


And the finished product! They were basecoated silver, washed, and allowed to dry. Once dry, a thin coat of hairspray was applied to the boxes. Once that was dry, they were airbrushed with their chosen color. I opted for primary colors for simplicity. Once the paint dried, some warm water was applied and the hairspray was rubbed off using a stiff-bristled brush. The water activates the hairspray, causing it and the paint to wash away. Once dry, a little sponging was done along the edges, they were matte varnished,  and stencils were applied using the same hairspray technique.


White Scars Jetbikes cruise past an ammo dump in pursuit of their quarry! 

I'm a sucker for scatter terrain, especially since I like to take my cinematic pictures like the one above. One of my goals for the studio is a Zone Mortalis table, so I'll definitely be picking more of these up! As you can see from the final picture there, our White Scars commission is way on its way; at the moment, we've got 2 Stormtalon, 6 Razorbacks, 3 Drop Pods, a Techmarine, an Ironclad Dreadnought, and the bikers here completed. There's still 50 infantry, as well as some bikers and some other odds and ends. Will be done Tuesday, so my work is cut out for me!
