Space Hulk Nano Part Deux.

Just a quick post to share the Space Hulk ladders, blips and fire counters I made.

Group shot


Quick explanation.
Ladders are granny grating and those little spacer rings that come with my el cheapo tubes of superglue.
Blips are sewing pins pushed through a disk of magnetic paper and snipped off.
Fire markers are basically made completely out of hotglue using DmScotty's method.

And a little story for your enjoyment

Two troopers are sent out to investigate some ghostly blips on the scanners...

OH DROKK!!!  We've got bugs!!!

Nuke'm from beond the airlock, its the only way to be sure.

Well thats all I got for you for now.
Cheers,
Stroezie.

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.

Cheers,
Stroezie.
