Objective markers

Not quite sure why I built and painted these right now, rather than finish all the other stuff on my table, but I figure I needed a wee break, so here we are, a few 40mm base onjective markers for any of my imperial forces.

A fuel dump




Ammo




Listening post.



Let me know what you think. Also any ideas for two more, as I figure 5 is a good number for these, I'm just out of spare 40mm bases for now.

  2. Nice oil/goop slick on the fuel dump. Also, the leaves on the netting add a nice touch.

    Spare parts area? or something of that nature..med kit?

  3. Breaks are good! Nothing worse than painting burn-out. Those objective markers are great! Nice job!

  4. The objective markers look great. I think taking a break from your other projects is a sometimes necessary distraction.

  5. Brilliant objective markers! How did you make those fuel drums...?

    As for suggestions:
    1) Grave marker.
    2) Holy Inquisitorial Relic.

  6. Those are some great objective markers.

    What have you used for the cammo netting, is that something that you would generally find at a hobby/scenery stor?

    Horatio and Noxenlux have good ideas with a spareparts area (ie vehicle repair post) or a common grave marker.

  7. wow, thanks everyone for the positive comments, I think that there's four cracking ideas there, an aid station of some kind, a grave marker, a relic of some kind and some form of vehicle supplies/repair area. now I need to order some more 40mm bases :)

    as to the various "how/what" questions -

    The camo net is very simple, it's just crepe bandage soaked in 50/50 water / pva glue and formed, the bits of leaves are poncy "leaf litter" from antenocitti's workshop, (www.barrule.com)but in the past i've used masking tape strips to represent rag strips.

    the oil drums are a cheat - they are resin drums I bought a bag of online some time ago, I'm not even sure where from now.

    the oil slick is just brown ink and klear 50/50, the trick is not flocking that part of the base to create the "puddle"

    I also tried something new, which was painting most of the models with my airbrush, I dont usually do such small things that way but it worked well I fell, the ground overspray looking nocely like dirt.

  9. Thanks Will,

    I found another 40mm base today, so I'll knock another up soon :)

    I think I'll start with Noxenlux's idea of some kind of medial supply stash
