Tank Craters R' us

Well hello!  I have been doing some non army work!  I have been making Craters for my tanks.  I have been playing by putting dive down dice, but they get bumped, and the crater is distorted.  Also, Sometimes i forget that I get cover in there (you do).  So I made Cool craters for all my tanks.  I only use 2 or 3 rhino sized tanks, and one land raider.  i use some Land speeders too, but have not got around to it yet.

Here is my landraider wreck:

I know that the dozer blade does not fit, but i thought it looks cool, and I like it.

I made some for my razorbacks.  They are not red yet ( i made these first, and realized i wanted to make them red afterward).  They will add a lot to the battle field.

What does everyone think?  Do you make craters for your tanks?  How.  If anyone wants to know, I will post how I did it.

Peace--- DK

Objectifying a Marker...

So.  Now that I am spending time making my army nice looking (finally), I made my very own objective marker!  I used the dead terminator from Space Hulk.  On a MC base, with some Crumbling concrete and some rocks.  The size of the base is the only problem I see.  It is large.  I need to make another, so both players have same sized objective.  Also, unless I want to make like 5, I should only use this guy in the two objective games.  Plus, If i provide Blood Angel Objectives, then I get home field advantage! Right?

I really like the Blood effect on the concrete.  I mixed sepia and blood red, let it dry, and put some devlin mud over it to make it look really old. 

Does anyone have tips on how to better take pictures.  I have a crappy little Kodak.  it has a micro function, but i cant hold it steady enough with out the flash, and that looks BAD.  Maybe there is a better way to light it?  Thanks in Advance.
