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


  1. !!!! I just noticed I have my first follower! probably is my mom... :)

  2. Those are some really nifty destroyed tank markers!

    Keep up the good work.


  3. Thanks! I painted the Rhino bases, so they look tits. I played a game with my roommate, and when I had to put my nice shiny new land-raider crater down, I was pretty sad about my land-raider... My roommate said that he was sure glad to see the new craters on the table... GRRR

    I made them by getting hobby plaster (power, old paper, and water)and put bits and plasticard, and some cork (as rocks and stuff) then let dry. Prime Black, put some mechrite red on, add some tin bitz and chain mail for weathering (fast), then dry brush with bleached bone. Add Flock or static grass to flavor.

  4. That's awesome... Something I've been meaning to create for a long time now and never getting around to.

  5. it is totally worth it. Looks so much better than a few dice showing where the crater is.
