More pictures of the Industrial Center

Fortunate to have a sizable collection of Sci Fi/P-A/Near-Future terrain for 28mm, the Industrial Center being popular.

Here are some more pictures of the current set up. Most of it is Litko Industrial Terrain System kits permanently attached to MDF boards, then accessorized with resin pieces, tubing, bitz. There’s a scratch-built office/garage, some fences, a three-story building (can’t recall whose) some Armorcast pieces, walls, tank traps. Top it off with some eBay pieces and voilĂ  – a dingy, dismal portion of the Apocalypse suitable for vicious firefights, blood-crazed, Rad-zombies, ruthless mercs, with a sprinkling of scavenge-able loot.

Game Night Pix

Here are some shots of Tuesday eve’s game night. Long time ago, I scribbled down some ultra-simple skirmish rules for pick-up games like this one. American forces were tasked with securing a damaged Sherman for repair crews. Germans sent a panzerschreck team and pals to finish the job. Click on the images for larger version. Americans took the first game hands-down. The replay saw the Germans come back hard.

Black Friar Security

Was pleased to get my order of Hasslefree Moderns right before Christmas. I retired to the War Room first chance, and set about assembling and priming them up. Now one of the many nice things about these figs – apart from little to no flash, crisp casting, excellent dynamic – was the extra weapon options. And, seeing them there on the painting table, I had to put them in someone’s hands. (No such thing as “extra” guns!) So… I dug out my MaxMini torsos and legs, scrounged up some left arms and helmeted heads, then kitbashed two extra squaddies.

Fluff-wise, I imagined these guys as a veteran “private security” outfit – one I’ve designated “Black Friar.” Battlefield necessity would require some sort of consistent uniform, but the mongrel nature of the crew means each member would be partial to certain gear. Hence the P90, the G36, an M4, and my personal favorite, the AS VAL. (If they ever make an airsoft version…) They also work for Near-Future or PA military types.

I’ll get these guys in a game ASAP. Comments welcome. Click for larger images. Take Care.
