Objective Markers and Scatter Terrain

Azazel‘s monthly painting challenges are partly the reason I started this blog, and now it’s time to present my entry to January’s challenge – Terrain & Centrepiece models.

This is more of a token entry, something small that I painted up in a couple of days. As most of the month was spent on Spiteclaw’s Swarm, I had to employ some (warp) speed painting, but I managed to pull it off, and the result is not half bad, if I say so myself.

I painted a set of objective markers from the old Battle for Macragge box set and a few pieces from the even older 40k Battlefield Accessories set. I can’t remember which of these sets I’ve had longer, but they’re both from around 2004. I was seriously amazed when I found out that the Accessories are still sold, but I do think that the barrels are nicer than in the new container set. The tank traps are pretty bad though..

The painting was mostly just washing, drybrushing and sponging, which was a pretty nice change of pace. The pallet got some extra love with freehand hazard stripes, and while they’re not super neat and even, I think it adds some much needed interest to an otherwise very plain piece. The fusion core from BfM was also painted a bit more carefully, and I thought it would be a good place to practice OSL. Not really visible in the pictures, but I’m not super satisfied with the result.

Phew! Challenge completed with almost half an hour to spare!

    1. Thanks man! I don’t know if I ever get to play a game as my interest lies in the painting and modelling side of the hobby. Underworlds is currently the only game that I get an occasional game in. That being said, I’m interested in making/getting a small display board for photography purposes, these pieces of scatter terrain would work well in that sort of thing (and certaily last for a long time!). And who knows, maybe I’ll get into Kill Team some day.

      1. I don’t get to play very often either (despite best hopes and intentions). Still, it’s always rewarding when I get to use one of the squads of Space Marines or other models that I’ve painted up!
