So looking at the core of my guard force, veterans with their old 5+ armor save I thought about building them some terrain.
In both Apoc and Planetstrike there is the ability to have Bunkers and or bastions.
I really like the idea of putting my guys in an armor 14 fire base. The downside is ability to give orders takes a hit as you can't order guys set up in buildings...unless you are in the building. Anyway here are some of the buildings I'm working on...(Ignore the Space Marines, these are older pics I'm just getting to post now.)
First a building...
Next up...a Bastion. Used a "Mega-Jug" from KFC as the tower. A tile, 4 cardboard tubes, and 4 1" cubes to the top. Door way is made from some broken keychain flashlights.
But having played a game with just one bastion...I decided to make a few more.
Finally, a bunker. First I found this wooden box at Micheals for $3.00.
Remove the latches, add some wooden coffee stirrers, and blocks.
I'll round out the top by adding sandbags made from super scuplty.
the new Fortifications...
More images to come...I got the sand bags done for the bunkers and painted them up this weekend.
