More Solar Empire Marines arrive

A pleasant surprise arrived in the mail today, another package of examples of the Solar Empire Marines by PFC C-in-C. With the arrival of this package, I will be quite busy preparing new posts to show them off to reveal just how cool this miniatures line is. I still have several minis from the first package of examples to post reviews and photos of. Time to get busy.

interior modular scenery

Inspired by Spacejacker's awesome 15mm space station terrain link I decided to see if I couldn't downscale it to 6mm. His favourite material are corck tiles but they are a bit thick for 6mm. so I decided to build mine out of what is fast becoming my favourite material, printable magnetic rubberised paper. You can easily cut it with scissors or a hobby knife, it takes paint well, you can superglue it and it is super durable plus I have tons of the stuff as my wife always brings home the leftovers from work. Leftovers in this case being about 3x3 feet pieces :-))

I made 16 tiles that can be arranged in many different configurations.
Here's an example of a typical 3 by 3 build.

And a blow out of the pieces...

The tiles are all 75mm by 75mm and the walls are 15mm high. The walls are two layers of magnetic sheet glued back to back as are all the details on the floor making every surface magnetic, great for adding removable details later.

Another benefit of magnetic paper, if you base your minis on it too, you can do this...

Helps to keep the other minis in place when I reach in there with my fat fingers to move one of them

The tiles are actually magnetic on both sides so I'm thinking of making a small metal board/carrying tray to make setting them up on easier.

All in all these were so fun, fast and easy to build that I'm already thinking of maybe doing a SpaceHulk travel set or something like it.

Hope you enjoyed it, please leave a comment below.

New photos of painted SEM Tanks

I managed to paint 6 of the newer Solar Empire Marines tanks this past week-

SEM-52 Augustus Tank:

SEM-53 Hadrian AT/AA:

SEM-54 Vespasian MLRS:

SEM-55 Claudius Twin Mortar:

SEM-56 Galba Twin Gatling Cannon:

SEM-57 Titus IFV:

I like how PFC C-in-C made creative use of the hulls of old Renegade Legion TOG Caesar tanks, in coming up with a whole new family of tanks for the Solar Empire Marines. If you'd like to add some of these to your collection, you can get them HERE
