Mad Mecha Guy crates

 A few photographs of some of my laser cut MDF crates from Mad Mecha Guy.  These have been painted in the colours of the IMEC mining company who inhabit my fictional sci-fi universe.  I've used a Wilko red emulsion tester (I think it was "flame"!) and drybrushed with desert sand for a slightly dusty, used finish.  These will come in handy for decorating the starport or an industrial site.

Ready to load the truck...

An assortment of crate sizes: 3, 6 and 9cm lengths.

15mm figures for scale.

The top of some have been left removable.

Old toy lorry gets a re-paint in IMEC livery!

IMEC logo stencilled on.

Desert terrain mat additions

 This is how I store my terrain mat, rolled up in a cardboard tube.

A large mat wraps around the tube, my desert map fits inside.

It needs a couple of minutes for the edges to relax and lie flat after you unroll it!

Desert buildings have had their bases repainted and palm trees have been finished.

The mat is very resilient and extremely flexible.

Because it's so thin, the frame sealant layer doesn't crack or flake and the stretchy leatherette allows you to position small objects under the mat to vary the shape of the terrain.
