Space Hulk Nano

Well I've finally done it!

I built myself a complete set off 6mm Space Hulk tiles and airlock doors.

And here they are...

Construction was fairly simple, just granny grating cut to size and glued onto magnetic paper so I can play on a metal surface and things won't slide around.
The little square inset tiles are also made of magnetic paper and as the minis will also be based on the same stuff the whole thing should be pretty stable on the go.

Here's a few pics of the first mission layout to give you an idea what a game would look like.

The minis are place holders untill I recieve my order from Onslaught Miniatures who were kind enough to put together a custom Space hulk pack for me from there awesome Sisterhood and Legion lines.

As these pictures are all a little dark I decided to pop a tile and some doors into my mini lightbox for a clearer look.

And just cause I couldn't resist playing around with them here's some of the airlock doors together with my spaceport terrain.

Now I still need to make some 3D flame tokens and find a nice way to make good looking magnetised blip counters that are easy to pick up and move around, any and all ideas are welcome.

Ok thats it for now, hopefully I'll have some pictures of the painted miniatures for you soon.



  1. So cool, looking forward to seeing your 'Nids and space nuns :)

  2. Very nice! I imaging it's easily portable.

  3. "order from Onslaught Miniatures who were kind enough to put together a custom Space hulk pack for me"
    I thought about a similar project a long time ago using Onslaught Minis but the price and quantities involved at that time was just too big.
    Can we have more details about this pack?
    Is this something they will put after on the shop in a permanent manner?

    1. You won't find it in his store, but you can always email him and ask. Thats basically what I did, most 6mm manufacturers are small, often one man, businesses, if you ask them nicely most of them are more than willing to sort something out for you. I did the same for my 6mm heroquest build with Microworld and again for a 6mm greek mythology project from Rapier miniatures. As they say Fortune favours the bold ;-))

    2. Forgot to add, here's what I ordered

      One Athena Destroyer with heavy flamer.
      One Athena Destroyer with gatling cannon.
      One Athena Assault trooper with slashing claws.
      One Athena Assault trooper with mace and shield.
      Seven Athena Battle troopers.
      One Avocati Athena.
      One Supreme Legate.
      Twentytwo Legion Prowlers.
      One Legion Overseer with whip.

      Total cost $12.50 + $5.50 postage = $18
